I would think the best path to follow is something spawned you, and unless it eats its young, is likely on your side. What is to be gained in denying it and going out into the wilderness all by your lonesome?
When the winds of time are filling your sails and moving you along, it is useless to figure just where it originated, especially since there is not a damned thing you can do about it. You just keep sailing. Be glad it is still blowing.
Don't make me get poetic on you.
