Day Zero post

Day 266 “Country roads”

The main road back to Daikon is blocked. A landslide of mud, snow, and trees covered the road. Which means if we wanted to go the quickest path It will be on foot. We have injured and they will not make it, so are heading home. Where our journey first started. Some of our forces have opted to make the trip back on foot though. I do not envy those people hiking through the forest. Most of that trip  will be spent in Rad suits and masks. Which if you ever spent a long time in a gas mask it is not fun. Let alone trying to sleep in one. Don’t get me wrong we will be spending at least a few days in MOPP gear too. These Suv don’t have air filters and breathing in this air could be risky. With my head wound These mask hurt. Every time I adjusted it opens the wound back up. (more…)

Day 265 

 

The count down came and gone. Everyone was holding their collective breath as it reached zero over the radio. The robotic voice giving a play by play of the effect. After an hour everyone went back to work maintaining the shelter. I stayed inside the engineering room to managed the cables.  After the third time I tripped over a cable someone needed to do it. Segreat Cole and I were the only one inside the room when the alarm over the radio came in. Cascade Failure seeking immediate shelter. Sergeant Cole ran out of the room to go get Colonel Rives leaving me alone. (more…)

Day  263 

 

Everyone has a job to do mine is simple. Work on the new cars that are being brought to the airport. Mainly running treage on the car. If the damage is too bad we red ticket it and move on to the next one. Now why would anyone bring a broken down car in to be fixed up? For parts to be used on the ones that do work. To make them  as the head auto mechanic called it rat rods. We are up to five fully working Vans, Trucks and Suvs. One of the Suvs was in almost perfect condition expect for the replacement driver side door. Which was Frankenstein back in. (more…)

 

Day 260 

 

Colonel Rives had us go back to Ash Tree today to block most of  the roads leadings out. The Suburbs of Canson has couple roads leading in and out. Which was easy to do with all those broken down cars in the area. The plan is  to leave one road open for the scavenger teams. That should make keeping the Ghouls or Charred in the area manageable. Crypt Wisp on the other hand can just scale walls, but leaving them with an open road to take can make it easier to spot them.  A small team will monitor the open road and take out any monster coming out. (more…)

Day 258 

 

Half of our forces left to take the civilians to Daikon this mornings. They took all but one humvee and a lot of resources. Once they left it felt like we were on a desert island. Back up is a days away and dangers lurks all around us.. While the General is away we are tasked to find replacement transport incase we need it. Which means some of us are going to the suburbs to find working vehicles. You will never guess whos team got assigned to that task. (more…)

Day 258 

 

Well this day could have gone better. I think the title say it all. Beth wants to take a break until we are safe back in Daikon. I don’t blame her for it and we will still be friends, but why does it sting so much. Just thinking about it is upsetting I sort of join the military to be close to her. More reason to hurry up and secure Canson, so I can get back to making out with her. Thinking about it are my priorities messed up? There are people dieing to get to Canson and all I can think about it making out. (more…)

Day 257

The clean up has taken forever. Burying all those ghouls took up a lot of time. Even with a backhoe it just was a lot of busy work. We could have just piled them all up and burned them, but nothing say hey monsters look at us like a huge fire. At least we should be done with the major monster forces hiding out in the suburbs for a bit. Which will make scavenging for food a safer task. Yesterday a small team was sent out to do some more recon of the area. They should be back tomorrow soon with a full report. I hope it is like yep all monsters dead proceed with the phase 2. (more…)

Day 250 “Ghouls on Parade”

 

We are pinned down inside the Airport. Today should have started the assault on main street until everything that was hiding in the suburbs came marching down main street. Hundreds maybe even thousands of ghouls lining the road. Marching down the road like a Halloween parade. The Charred also making up the ranks with a few Crypt Wisp on the sides. You can make out the Crypts from the way the light is distorted around them. Thankfully the higher ups had the foresight to block the roads leading into the airport into choke points. Otherwise we would have been overran a lot sooner. (more…)

Day 248 

 

The general made safely  to Canson. He is now command of the operations. It was late in the day when his convoy finally made landed. Before his arrival Colonel Rives had us clean everything. At one point he made us wash the walls. At least the smell is mostly gone. It was starting to get a little too rank even for the most season servicemen.  You will never guess who got stuck on laundry duty. That is right my squad. Not how I planned on serving, but every job is important. While working on my fifth load of socks the call came in over the speaker the convoy is here. (more…)

Day 247

Back before the world fall there used to celebration called groundhogs day. Someone would knock on a tree stump and pull out a  groundhog. If it saw its shadow it would be six more weeks of winter. If not spring would come six weeks early. Well seeing how Punxsutawney Phil is probably long gone I guess  the monsters our are new seasons fortune teller. The Charred woke up hungry and ready to eat whomever they could. Only a few made it out of the woods. The lookout in the control tower spoted them before they spotted us. One thing about gunfire though is that it is not quiet, so any other of these monsters looking for people to snack on know where we are now. (more…)
