Day 310 “The Zombies are coming”
Today is the final day outside before we leave for home. Colonel Rives is making great progress on walking and Ronin has fully cleared for duty. In two weeks we will be making our way back home. The SUV still needs some work and made ready to travel. Which means a lot of grunt work. Like rotate the tires, change the oil and clean out the filters if they even can be cleaned. Lily and Beth are working on getting the packs for each ready. Ronin and Will were on guard detail. While we tasked away. It was Will that sounded the alarm to hide. The ghouls have made it to our home.
We gathered to watch them march down the road. At first it was just a few of them. Then a small army of just marching down the road. To fire a gun would be a death sentence for us. There were more of them than we had bullets. We took shelter inside the garage while the ghouls passed. I had finished working on the SUV, so we hid in there ready to drive out of there if we needed to. Thinking back, we should have just ran back into the shelter. I was sitting in the driver’s seat and could just make out the endless tide of monsters. They were heading somewhere, but the road they are marching on ends in a few miles. Something must have been calling for them. (more…)
Day 301 “I was so wrong”
I got you with that title I bet. The honey was just fine. It was difficult to get the lid off though. Almost had to smash it open. I did not want it to come to that. That would have been so messy and Lily would have made me clean the whole shelter. From top to button just like Mom would have. Lt. Gale was upset with me and told me that I will be the test subject. If in a few day if am okay she will clear it safe to eat. Which means more honey for me. Which I might have made a mistake on eating it. (more…)
We left camp Daikon for Canson two days ago. Tomorrow we should be reaching the city. For the last two nights we have been getting attacked by ghouls in regular bouts. It is like they knew we were coming. Each attack coming from random directions each time. The last attack a group of 30 jumped off a cliff and landed on to the top of the lead transport. Thankfully these monsters are slow and not quick to get back up once they fall. A few people were injured, but nothing life threatening. The transport on the other hand ruptured a few hoses when it ran over a few ghouls that landed in front of it
The convoy had to stop for repairs. Colonel Rives picked a old turnout next to the road for us to stop at. Thankfully with a clear view all around. A perimeter was set and look outs put in place around the edges of the forest to watch for more ghouls. The nights are still cold and we can’t light fire. Making one is just asking for something to attack. A campfires light can be seen for over a mile away when there is no other light outside. headlights at night going down a set road is not the wisest choice either. Our small squad did not have guard duty tonight, but none of us could sleep, so I took a small walk to warm up. While walking around to keep my joints from aching I ran into Colonel Rives heading back from the bush. He joined me on my walk and we chatted for a little bit.
Colonel Rives told talked to me about the operation into Canson. I asked him if he had any idea what caused the end of the world. He had a few guess, but without intel just museing and speculation. I tried to press him on what a cascade failure could be again no luck. After that we quietly walk around until gun fire broke us out of the walkers dazes. A few ghouls attack again only a few this time. The sooner we get to Canson the better. Seeing the bodies up close of the ghouls just makes it more clear that the world has changes so much in these past 200 days.
