The bulky stone object starts nudging slowly upwards as Gary starts to lift it and then, dragging on the lawn, it finally leaves the ground ,barely as the old diseased man manages to carry it up with surprising amount of force.

Satisfied that Gary has it under control, Sherie walks back to the car and starts it up.

Suprised at his own strength, Gary nearly drops the thing but manages to keep a tight hold of it. He grins to himself, saying aloud "Guess this thing must be lighter than i thought". He carries it to the back of the car, setting it down so he can open the trunk and then lifting it into the trunk of the car. He puts it next to the corpse and locks the trunk, then goes back towards the rear passenger seat behind Sherie where he gets into the car.

Once Gary gets in, Sherie puts the car in gear and follows the GPS directions to the bridge.  After a few minutes, it comes into view and she brings the car to a stop just before the bridge.  "So, here's the plan" she begins.  "We tie the bird bath to the body right here, instead of on the bridge.  That would just look too suspicious.  Once it's ready, we drive onto the bridge and toss it...shouldn't take more than a few seconds.  If anybody rolls up in the next couple minutes, the story is that we thought we hit a dog.  A uh...Dalmation.  So we stopped to see if it was ok."  She looks Gwen up and down, trying to gauge whether she's lucid enough to help, or if she would just get in the way.  "Let's do this."

Gwen attempts to lift but, doesn't even budge it as Gary heaves the object up. Shrugging she just follows and get back in the vehicle. As Sherie lays out the plan, she nods inconsequentially, not really listening until she mentions the part on hitting the dog. She grins.

"Just 1 or the whole 100? What about Cruella?"

When Sherie looks her over, she gives her a wink then turns around in the seat kneeling and peers at Gary over the top the seat, her eyes just making it over the top.

"My what big muscley arms you have Gran-Pa."

There is little light to show the way with many dark evergreen tree tops casting shadows onto the leaf and rock covered muddy forest ground and road, blocking most of the dim starlight above and leaving only pitch darkness. 
The Car stops, its headlights cones fall over a wide Road Sign that says 'Narrow Bridge', 'Watch for ICE on Bridge' and 'Mt.Dawson Provincial park 150 yards'.
Looking down the side from the road-sign ,down along the twisting path of the road ahead the kindred can discern a silhouette of a bridge towering across what looks a narrow yet deep rock ravine that is passing through the forest. The gushing sound of rushing water that must come from the stream at the bottom of the Ravine that joins into the bigger river some miles away.

The Forest around is disturbingly quiet at this hour save for the noise of the stream and the rustling sound of the black shadowy tree leafs above.

Spoiler for Hiden:

Imagine the Ravine is something like 10-15 meters deep and that the bridge is solid and wide enough to allow cars through

The Red dot on the map gives a rough indication of the GPS location

Gary gets a rather smug smile on his face when he hears Gwen. "Better not forget that then" he says, sounding quite pleased with himself. He's not entirely sure whether he had always been that strong and just didn't really put it to the test...but something in the back of his mind is nagging at him that that probably wasn't it. The thought crosses his mind that it may be one of the "perks" of his new condition. He wasn't gonna complain about THAT one, at least.

Gary's broken out of his train of thought as Sherie begins explaining the plan. He nods in agreement, despite the fact that he knows that Sherie cant see him from where she's sitting.

As they begin to arrive close to the scene of the bridge,
Spoiler for Hiden:
where they will tie the guy up
Gary looks around through the rear windshield and the side windows. As he's looking through the side windows
Spoiler for Hiden:
I'll just assume he doesn't see anyone in the rear windshield, it being at this hour and in the woods
he suddenly realises that there's probably not gonna be anyone in the thick woods, much less in the middle of the night. Still, he doesn't seem entirely secure about the darkness in between the trees, and spends a lot longer looking out into the darkness in the woods then he did looking at the road behind him.

She kills the engine, hits the trunk unlock button and steps outside.  Walking to the back of the car, she opens the trunk.  As she raises the lid, its contents are bathed in soft glow from the automatic lights.  She starts to reach in, then hesitates.  "Gary?  Gwen?  Did he have a flashlight on him?"  Something about her voice and body language make it pretty clear that she has no intention of touching the corpse unless it is absolutely necessary.  "If there's a light, I can go find a good place to--"  She peers through the darkness towards the bridge.  "I hope the water is deep enough.  Also, are either of you good with tying knots?"

Gary hesitantly gets out of the car, "I'm not the one who stripsearched him, and i'm afraid i wasn't exacly a boyscout before this started, so no." He walks around to the back of the car and looks at the corpse in the trunk. He listens for a second for the sound of the water rushing through the nearby river. "Long as we tie this thing securely, i'm sure it'll be deep enough, at least to drag the corpse a mile or two down the current."

"Light? Uh..."

She fumbles around as if she had pockets for a moment, the reachs into her shirt and pulls out a lighter.

"Light? This is all there was."

She begins flicking the top open and closed quickly for a moment.

"I remember a little bit back from b-girl scouts."

She hesitates a little then goes round to try to begin tying a knot with the rope.

"Lets see... Over.. then under.. then around.. and through.."

Though its very dark Gwen seems to be able to see very clearly using the baggage compartment faint lights, she manages to make a modified version of a hang man's noose using the Cable, big enough and made so it doesn't open too easily once tightened.

The Kindred get some really disturbing natural vibe about the forest, increasing their alertness,  As if something or someone is out there in depth of that unknown sea of darkness that lies outside the Car's small island of light.

Gary looks around himself into the forest as the feeling of dread persist, becoming shakey all over. He reaches a hand into the inside of his coat, cursing under his breath as he realises he checked it before, for whatever he was looking for. "Lets just do this and get out. This place is working a number on my nerves."
