Day 328 “ SUV down”

 

Today was more of the same as yesterday. Our boots sinking into the ground as we marched. More than a few times one of us had to be pulled from a pit. The near freezing muck making us shiver uncontrollably.  My jaw aches from all the chattering it was doing. Everyday I miss the old world lived. It seems like not that long ago after a day of playing in the mud I could just walk back into our monster free house and take a warm shower. Just a few more days until we are back in Daikon. Where I can  bathe, get a warm meal and rest. Or at least it was only going to be a few days until we found the SUV.

 

It was late in the afternoon when we reached the base of 50/50 rock. The next resting point to Diakon. The road leading up the hill is winding and one lane. A small stream of water was pooling at the base of the hill. Slowly we made are way up the hill. That was when we ran into trouble.  There was a group of Charred on the path. They were eating something I could not make it out. Carefully we tried to make our way back down without them noticing us. Unfortunately Beth tripped alerting them to us. At least it was down hill run. Everything would have been fine until a larger group of ghouls came crashing down from on top of the hill. Blocking our path down.  There was only 1 option at that point we jumped off the side into the forest below.

 

With the ground soaked it did not seem like a bad idea jumping off the side of a hill. We landed on the opposite side of where we started. There was no time to stop after our jump. Once we landed a flood of ghouls came crashing behind. I did not think that many could have fit on top of 50/50, but life finds a way. A few yards into the forest is when we found  the remains of the SUV. There was gore all around the site, but I had no time to check it out. We had to keep moving deeper into the woods. Only stopping for little break to catch our breath. It was early morning the next day when we finally had to rest for the day. Even now I can hear movement of monsters around us. Time to wake Beth up and head out. I guess I will sleep some other time.

Day 300 “Wasteland Looting”

 

Ronin seems to be fully recovered, but Colonel Rives needs more time. Lt. Gale has taken to staying outside longer and longer each day. It is better than waking up one morning and have her missing. She has been reporting something walking around in the forest line. Nothing we can do about it until whatever it is comes out. It could just be wildlife, but you never know. The last thing we want to do is alert everything that we are here. Nothing says that like gun fire. A bullet from a rifle can be heard almost 3 miles away. Still it would be nice to get all the monsters taken care of before he start to head out. (more…)

Day 178

We are starting to run into things that were not accounted for with all these people.  Interesting things like not enough light bulbs, electrical wire, and other day to day items.  Even with the new septic system you need a way to clean it efficiently and maintain it. People also forget that light bulbs also don’t grow on trees.  Even LED lights have to be replaced every once in a while. The point of prepping is to think about the short term and long term. The compound has enough supplies to last for a while, but with all these new people we will are running out of things quicker than expected. Thinking about all that I can see why Colonel Rives can up with his plan of attack.  (more…)

Day 171

It has been a month since the military joined us. Colonel Rives has proven to be a natural leader.  The military did not end up taking over the camp, but worked with the structure that are already in place. In the last 30 days we have come together as a small society. There have been a few problems and only one intense standoffs. Two people that came here from the military camp decided not to live in this world anymore and ended it. Injured a few people on the way out to. They  looked like the type of person that had everything handed to them in life. Shame what happened, but why would you want to hurt other people in that type of circumstance? (more…)
