Arjan tapped a few buttons on her slate, 'We can make the trip, it's only 4100 kilometers give or take, from here to Pretoria. We can unfold the solars, put everything but the drive in low power mode, and there should be enough recharge stations between here and there if you want to drive it. If we drive 16 hours a day, at 50km an hour, we could make it in, say 6 days.'

'A shuttle could do it in four hours', Ubutsu said, his voice had an odd note to it. 'No one knows that these units are missing or WMDs, and thus far no one here has been blacklisted by AfroZone security. 'Well, you all have security tags, and no one will let you on a civilian skyliner, but you can all still get into the aerodrome for a private chartered flight.'

"They did well to give me a security tag - I *am* a security hazard. It feels so good to be appreciated."
Blue put on a pleasant voice fit for a stewardess: "Please make sure you don't have any Blue of 100 mL or more in your carry-on luggage. All Blues of less than 100 mL must be contained in pressure-proof containers."
Smirk.
"Better give the good professor a sufficiently intriguing call that would make him receive us, yet has to be cryptic enough to prevent him from calling security right away. These Women of Magical Delights could elicit a knee-jerk reaction anywhere, even from the enlightened."
Oh, look at what the Blue dragged in.
"Jerome, your secure uplinks, we could use them to call Vanderbilt without giving away our location, yes?"

"They are as good as I can make them. Lots of redirection. First leg is the riskiest - its the one that can give our location.  Lets get away from here first. Say, 10 klicks. Away from the scavengers at least."

And drive they did, away from the crash site, checking the level of background noise via technology and their respective senses, until they found a place with sufficient noise to hide them.
The somewhat grainy image and wavering signal would add a little flair to the message, Blue was sure.
"Hello there, good professor. This is your marvelous Blue, ever fondly remembering our cooperation, and ever benefiting from your lessons. My associates and I have run across some intriguing examples of engineering in our adventures, and believe you may be the only one with sufficient expertise we can approach discreetly. Now, I am morally obliged to inform you that there may be some degree of danger involved, which is likely offset by the uniqueness of the find. I rather would not disclose more at this time - so, please, if you would be so kind as to receive us in the near future, please let us know. Yours truly, Tel'Issaire Witherwind, a.k.a. Blue."
The neo-ethnic took a deep breath.
"So, how was I?"

Jerome shrugged. He had no idea as the character or trustworthiness of the Professor.

"Good. Didn't telegraph quite the level of s**t we have here."
