Honestly, I thought I'd written myself into a corner with this problem of getting to Triana with not enough fuel or supplies for everyone to survive the trip. But then this idea occurred to me.

I don't really have an issue with this sort of writing, or of ending up in tricky plotting corners, as I find a solution almost inevitably presents itself.
