He realized the impact of the Change almost immediately and remembered that the nearby museum had a living tableau of frontier history that included two Conestoga wagons and the draft horses to haul them. He went to the display and used his park ranger credentials to take the animals and wagons. He gathered members of the Singing Moon Coven and took them to Juniper's Cabin. Along the way, he acquired more supplies and helped rescue a busload of children.
