We begin Day Two of Phil and John's camping out on Unnecessary Hardship Island with John starting to hallucinate.

(Strip Number 4658, Original Publication Date, 2 August 1986)

Panel 1: We begin the second day on the island with John asking Phil what time he thinks it is. Phil thinks that it's probably five in the morning.

Panel 2: John comments on how they'll never find them in the fog that's rolling in.

Panel 3: Phil tells John to help him improve their shelter and keep the fire going to stay warm.

Panel 4: John starts hearing voices on the wind.

Summary: I wonder if Lynn ever realized that the lean-to meant that people have been to the island before. Since John and Phil are initially mistaken for people who camped there on purpose, it could be that the voice on the wind is the dude who dropped that empty in the lake.
