I need to know in which direction I should be going so that I can become enthusiastic once more because I just love the game and am so dying to get my teeth into it. I have include a list of what I am carrying, maybe there is something missing and if so could you please tell me where to find it. It is soooo frustrating going round and round the Corolis in circles!

You haven't been to the sandstone area of the caves yet, I think. Maybe you're thinking of the limestone area, where the pillar is.

Anyway, the trick to finding the sandstone area is that in one area where you can jump from a speeding mine cart, it doesn't disappear right away. It's still being kept track of in the game, and you have a certain number of turns to find it again before it *does* become lost for good.

It's easy to miss, but in the period of time between jumping from the cart and the point where it's lost for good, there's a modification to the area description (the purple box text).
