Journal Entry: Day 46


I am so sore from yesterday! You forget what working out feels like after being stuck in a tube for over a month. Mom ran us through the packing and unpacking drills again. Then more Pt with Dad.  He had us do squats, planks and lunges. It was a pretty boring day after that until after bed. During the night Mom and Dad woke Lily and I up. They took us to the dining room and told us Tomorrow morning Dad, Lily and I will be leaving the shelter to get the beast ready. The beast is a old RV Mom and Dad rebuilt. It has a lot of cool features in case we have to be on the move for a long time. There is even a hidden gun turret on top. Though I have only ever seen Mom work on it. Mostly she uses colorful words when she does, so I don’t know if it even works.. The plan is to put on our biohazard suits and get to the barn where the beast is. I am to be Dad’s backup in case something happens. Lily will cover us and open the door  if we need to get back into the shelter quickly. David was Dad’s back up and I had the honor of door duty, but he is not here anymore. It will be a short trip out. The barn is in back of the house. On the opposite side of the shelter near the forest line. Once we are back in the shelter we will decontaminate in the anteroom for an hour. After planning we set out all the gear we would be using. Dad got out the two plasma guns that he and I would be using from the shelters safe and a long rifle for Lily. Dad, Lily and I cleaned the guns then he put them back in the safe. Only 6 hours till I get to see the outside world again. Maybe I can convince Dad to take a detour into the house to get my slate before going back to the shelter.
