Just a wanderin' - Exploration 1Mika shifted in the saddle stretching her lower back trying to free the kinks knotted there, a similar groan of discomfort from her other companion said he was just as stiff as her. Dakota was taking point today while Zev and Luke followed alongside, they’d been alternating days for about a week now scouting the outer territories. Luke was a new companion, but he was welcome company, he claimed that his sister was up in the Tartok Mountains with her toko on that Dire expedition. “She is crazy to try going up there but there is no stopping her, I’m just hoping she doesn’t try to go after and bring home one.” She heard him say.Just a wanderin' - Exploration 1 by LaylaBlackwolf
Since she had a rather lovely dire herself, a niggle of curiosity made her wonder why he would be so opposed to one. “Why? Most are desperate to lay claim to a dire, why not you?” She asked ducking a low hung branch on the trail.
Luke shrugged and bent low over his greys neck to avoid the same tree limb trying to sweep him

Dire Days: Tartok Mountain ExpeditionDire Days
July 1st - August 31st
Researchers at the Tokota Cultural Association have decided to venture into the treacherous Tartok mountains to study the remaining wild dires that exist there, and they need your help. Considered to be the ancestors of the modern day Tokota, these massive creatures have the potential to teach us valuable knowledge about their behavior to help in their domestication. Due to their dangerous nature, officials have asked experienced handlers and their Tokotas to join them on this journey into Dire territory.
The Tartok mountains is home to the Desna Pack. A pack of wild Tokotas who are Dire in build, including the notorious Fenrir.
The mountain range itself is cold and dangerous. Steep cliffs and expansive caves make the landscape hard to navigate, and the dires are even harder to find.

You can include your tokos in the drawing.
You can apply for more then one of my tokotas if you are sure that you can get all the rites done in time! (It's not sure that the tokos you choose will have the same trait, so you can't just apply for 3 tokotas hoping that you can draw them all in one pic.)
Include this info when you apply for one of them:
Which tokota's rites would you like to do:
Which toko would you like the slot to (if it's not the same):

The sound of tires crunching on the gravel made Emmy’s ear twitch in the direction of the noise, their extra handler had finally arrived. They had agreed to meet at the boundary with their three tokos ready to go so they could head out for the trip as soon as she got there. Amy was tacking up her yeti, Fluffers, and only glanced up from her task as the truck pulled up. Sending a quick look to Captain she made sure to make it clear that he wasn’t to approach the vehicle, the piebald was always interested in checking out new things and had a knack for finding trouble along the way. “Are you sure we should let her pilot Captain? He is a handful at the best of times.” Emmy asked leading Cherry around to help keep the male in line and out of trouble.
Amy shrugged. “Unless you want to give up Cherry to take him I think she can handle it.”
The engine of the truck died and the sisters watched the other woman climb down from the cab. The dark haired woman smiled at them with an open face, her gentle expression brightening when she caught sight of Cherry. To be fair most people stared at the roan, she was a pretty female and because of her rare coat just about everyone with a pulse and an eye for the breed wanted a breeding slot. “Hi, Emmy and Amy right? I’m Leanna nice to meet you, and these guys must be your lovely tokos? They sure are a pretty lot.” She stood a respectful distance away so as to let the three large animals approach on their terms.
As expected Captain was first in greeting the stranger, Leanna smiled and lifted her hands palms up so he could sniff her. The piebald snuffled about inhaling her scent and cataloging the markers he found there. Finding a floral soap, other Tokota’s, and a musk that all humans had mixed together to create an identifying scent maker that was uniquely hers. Cherry and Fluff soon followed suit being a touch more tentative, but eventually introduced themselves. Though when she started giving out chin scratches and finding the sweet spots behind ears she was quickly swarmed. Giggling as wet noses and rough tongues lurped at her hands and found the ticklish spots at her wrists Leanna gave attention to each toko in turn. Emmy appreciated that she made time for each and seemed to genuinely like the open affection of the animals. “Nice to meet you too, and we rather like our guys as well.” Emmy smiled and reached around the furry bodies to shake the other woman's hand.
“The yeti is Fluffers and Amy will be taking him, Cherry is my roan baby, and that leaves you with our big bad Captain. He can be a handful and rather headstrong you think you can handle him?” She asked as she pointed out each Tokota.
Amy came up beside her sister bringing Fluff to heel with a snap of her fingers, the big pale tundra did as asked and plopped down next to the redhead tongue lolling sidewise out of his mouth. Cherry also backed away and turned to Emmy for some extra love since Cap was in what appeared to be rapture as Lee found a particular sweet spot on the tokos chest and was using both hands to scratch it. Emmy and her sister both chuckled when one of his legs started to twitch and flail in the air scratching at an invisible itch, and his neck stretched up like he was about to howl but he just grunted and groaned. When she stopped she got another lick from the very happy Captain though this time across her face. “Hey now if you’re gonna try to slip me the tongue you need to buy me dinner first.” Lee chuckled wiping the slobber from her cheeks.
A half smile curved Amy’s mouth as she watched the two interact. “I think they’ll be fine.” She said nudging Emmy, turning her violet gaze back to Lee she jerked her head towards Cap. “Think you can saddle him up and then we’ll get going yeah?”
Leanna ruffled the fur at the top of his head nodding to the druid siblings. “Yeah I can do that.” she replied hazel eyes crinkling up as her smile nearly split her face in two.
Nodding the two redheads went back to tacking up their mounts and gathering their supplies into the saddle bags and packs. Captain was more than a little fidgety as his attention span was like that of a flea, he seemed to be fascinated by everything. Lee was getting a little frustrated when the piebald yet again jerked out of her grip and made the saddle slip sideways while she was tightening the girth. Growling under her breath Leanna moved to face him and got a pair of happy mismatched orbs staring back at her. The brown and blue iris’ flicked to and from her eyes showing his submissive status, but his gaze lingered long enough so that she knew he was asking what she wanted. Losing her annoyance she sighed and scratched his chin softening her posture. “Hold still will ya? It’ll only take a few more seconds before I’m done and we can get moving and you can check out anything and everything you want. Okay?” She prompted holding his stare for a few seconds hoping he understood if not her words then her meaning.
She got a high pitched grunting whine to show he had heard her and remained still while she finally finished buckling the harness. Emmy and Amy always kept the two in their peripheral vision and would send one another looks communicating silently with facial expressions. Are you ready? Emmy asked her brows raising in question.
Yes. Amy gave a small nod before mounting Fluffers
Think she can keep up? Emmy tipped her head in their direction a small crease forming on her forehead.
Her sister raised a single brow and snorted, as if the question was silly. She’s on Captain, of course she’ll keep up.
Em raised her shoulders slightly. Just checking.
For the third time. Amy rolled her eyes.
Sticking out her tongue with a pout she mounted Cherry after tying down her sleeping bag. Oh hush, like you aren’t just as concerned as I am.
Making no other response but to snort again the sisters waited for their companion to finish up with Cap. Lee quickly strapped down all of the supplies but she took a moment to think before climbing aboard the tall male. Whatever it was that she was thinking about she remembered something and rushed back to her truck and grabbing something from the cab. Both siblings cocked their heads as the dark haired woman bounced back carrying a bright red extra large Kong toy in her hands. “I always have a spare one with me, it keeps my guys preoccupied so they aren’t completely bored when we have more relaxed days.” Putting the toy in her pack she swung up in the saddle and joined Emmy and Amy at the trailhead to head out. Fluffers was in high spirits and took lead down the narrow section of path before they headed off trail and into the wilderness.
Captain took the middle while Cherry took up the back, the pseudo mom of the pack always wanted to keep her “pups” in sight. The three tokos kept a steady trot in the trees but always picked up into a canter when they broke into open ground. Captain and Leanna would sometimes wander off a bit but she kept him in line of sight of the other two, the scattered prey scents kept him and sometimes even Fluffers ambled off with the other male. Cherry and Emmy watched as her sister and Leanna chatted though she couldn’t quite make out what was said until she got closer. It was a discussion on what sort of route they would want to take, one that would have prey for the tokos and limited predator action. Though that was always seemed a tough plan to execute since if there was food to be had something was bound to want a piece of it, that was the way of nature unfortunately. “If we stick to the higher elevations there won’t be as many bears to contend with.” Amy suggested.
“Yeah but then we come across the mountain lions, and they are ambush predators. A bear I know I can handle, cougars?” Leanna winced. “Those sneaky bastards could kill me in a heartbeat if they have a good vantage point.”
Emmy watched her sister shrug nonchalantly and just knew something sarcastic was about to fall out of her mouth. “Then don’t walk under a vantage point, solves your problem right there.” Ah there it is, was wondering how long it would take before she said something catty.
Leanna just laughed and flashed a wide grin to Emmy. “I like you two, you have my sense of humor.”
Em looked to Amy and shrugged, if she could deal with the snark then she would get would get it. Though it wouldn’t be half as fun unless she could swing it back, and if that smirk was any clue she definitely could. Pretty soon there were friendly barbs and banter was tossed back and forth between the three that put them in stitches of laughter. Much of the afternoon was passed this way before they made their way further up the mountain and fell into a easy silence. When dusk turned the western horizon pink, orange, and gold they began to look for a good camping spot. Finding a small bubbling brook as a clean water source the women began to unpack a little ways off and set up camp for the night. As Amy gathered wood and kindling for the campfire Emmy and Leanna set about taking care of the trio of Tokotas, once released from their tack and supplies the small pack bounded off to play with one another before they settled down for the night.
Pretty soon though Fluffers caught the scent of a rabbit warren and set about tracking it down with Cap and Cherry shortly behind. “If you catch something bring it back, we could use a new pair of boots!” Emmy called jokingly to their disappearing backs with a chuckle.
“Good to know mine aren’t the only ones who take off like that when we are out here. Kase is the worst, she just disappears without us even noticing half the time.” Leanna said watching them go.
Amy shrugged lighting the tinder of the fire. “They are still wild at heart so it’s good for them to be a little footloose, hone those most basic of instincts, to hunt and kill as a pack. They’ll be back before too long.” The smell of woodsmoke teased their nostrils and each set up a sleeping bag in a circle around the firepit and then pulling out some food stuffs to eat for dinner.
Meanwhile Fluffers and Cherry were sniffing about the main entrance to the warren digging around for stronger scents while Captain went in search of the back way out of the burrow. Following his nose managed to find find one, signalling to the others that he was in place Cherry joined him at the back while Fluff attacked from the front. Growling more for show than anything else, he dug into the turf scooping up large pawfuls of dirt out of the way so he could get as much of his bulky frame down the rabbit hole as possible. In effect scaring the prey out of hiding and straight into his waiting partners jaws to devour the fleeing animals. Well that was the plan anyway, whether or not it would work out that way was yet to be seen. Pausing long enough to inhale deeply for the smells and listen for movement Fluff managed to gather that a handful of the rabbits were in the den and scattering for different exits.
Increasing his digging Fluffers snarled, again for show, trying to see if he could snag a braver critter trying to defend the front gate. No such luck unfortunately, but a few squeals and squeaks before crunching sounds told him that his compatriots were more successful. When he could no longer hear any movement in the tunnels he abandoned the gaping hole he had left behind and went in search of his pack hoping they had saved a few morsels for him.
Yipping happily when he saw the group of big footed rodents piled together Fluff trotted over to share in the spoils. Cherry nosed a plump one in his direction promptly laying her paw over the wandering muzzle of Captain who was trying to move in on it. Grunting as she pushed down Cap squirmed out from under her with a huff taking one of the smaller rabbits instead. Cherry chuffed at him and swiped her tongue between his brows like a true mum after giving Fluff his share before picking up her own. Though she paused when she spotted the last hare laid out on the ground, cocking her head she wondered how she could carry back to her handler. Captain moved in and like a golden retriever somehow managed to stuff the second prey into his wide mouth. She whined at him her eyes narrowing in warning and just like a teenage pup he rolled his eyes but fell in line behind Fluff as they trotted back to camp.
Following the smell of smoke the group made it back within a couple minutes their dinner hanging from their jaws. When Emmy spotted her crew coming back she grinned and nearly bust a gut when she spotted their piebald with his mouth stretched so wide he looked cartoonish. “Well I might not be able to make a pair of boots out of ‘em but maybe a nice pair of mittens.” She chuckled.
Amy ruffled the mop of fur on her boys face clearing it of earth and smiled at the goofy grin he gave her in return. Leanna giggled a bit at the sweet scene when a slobbery rabbit dropped in her lap, startled she looked up to see her mount Captain staring back at her with those bi-eyes of his. The blue and brown orbs told her it was hers and she could with it what she wanted, her smile grew wide and she reached up and scratched under his chin. “You’re such a sweetheart, I’ll save you some okay?” Cap’s ears twitched and he tilted his head at her before grunting and walking off to eat his dinner.
“He likes you, good job after just one day. Now are you gonna take care of bugsy bunny there or do want us to do it?” Amy asked poking the fire a little higher now that there was fresh meat to be cooked.
“If you’re offering, I’ll let you take it.” Holding out the rabbit Emmy came over and took it from her hold.
When she set about cleaning the kill her sister set up the spit to roast it on, Lee remembered something she had stashed with her before she’d left that morning and went into her pack for the supplies. “Ha ha! There you are!” She crowed pulling out the bag.
“Whatcha got there?” Emmy asked handing over the cleaned kill.
Turning around Leanna grinned from ear to ear. “They brought dinner, I’ve got dessert.” Holding up the bag of marshmallows, crackers, and a king size hershey bar. “S’mores anyone?”
Twin pairs of violet eyes flashed to one another. “Works for us.” They chimed in unison.
