Quinn did a flyover that encircled the entire steading. He took note of the largest "chimney" (not a chimney in fact, but a mud-and-wooden hole above a large open room with a grand bonfire below. The room was occupied, based on the nose, but Quinn couldn't see in with all the smoke from the bonfire). He noted the kitchen fires based on the smell coming from two smoking chimneys. He stayed high overhead when passing by the dire wolves, and he noted the only other chimney that did not show signs of a fire - the outbuilding's north-east corner. Flying over the spot that they had begun, the gatehouse, and the watchtower, he returned to the company.
