Day 215 

It has been snowing for two days now. This flurry has turned into a problem for all these new people. There still is not enough cloths for all them. Mom gave up almost all her sewing supplies to help make cloths. I managed to hide enough material to finish my blanket for Beth. Though I do feel a guilty  hiding it. Thinking about it Beth is one of those people that lost everything to. She deserves this blanket just as much as everyone else does. Courtney went looking for more fabric and found my stash. I told her about what I was doing with it. She thought it was sweet what I was doing for Beth. Also embarrassed me in front of the whole family about it later tonight. Something only a sister or mother could do.

 

The snow did bring some  welcome news. The charred can’t handle the cold. During a routine sweep of the forest Colonels rives men found a couple of them frozen solid. They brought one of them back to study. Maybe the medical team can learn something that we could use to combat them better. Just seeing that thing close up makes my left hand itch. Its teeth are bigger than I remember. If it was up to me I would have just dispacted it where I found it. Research is important, but what if this thing thaws out and rampage inside the medical hut. Thankfully the military was thinking the same thing and had five guards posted around it at all times. Until the vivisection was complete. Still I think was a bad idea to bring here I guess time will tell if I am right.

Day 212

I think the title says it all for this one. We completed our steam engine got everything working and then it blew up. Okay not like a giant ball of fire more like a balloon with a small leak. When we were building it someone put a small hole in the pressure vissle. Thankfully no one got hurt. Everyone was wearing the appropriate safety gear and we started up the engine behind some plexiglass. Sort of depressing seeing our hard work go up in a ball of steam like that. Though most of the machine is salvageable. Mom said that during the time of the american industrial revolution that  accidents like this were common. After school my fellow classmates got together for some more D&D.

 

There is a cult that is trying to bring about the end of the world and we have to stop them. During tonight’s campaign we almost didn’t make it. A couple of unlucky 1 rolls knocked two people out.  Wights are serious monsters I think they have the ability to control dice rolls. Every time one showed up at no fewer than 5 “1” where rolled. It was a intense time exploring the town of Nulb. I would have like to play more, but everyone had work in the morning . These table tops nights have been a great way to relax and remember what it is like to have a normal life again. If only we could do this more often.

 

After we called it for the night on gaming everyone headed back home. I walked Beth back to the Robinsons cabin. Which you would have never guessed it they were not home. It was cold and windy tonight. Clouds hung low in the sky we are due for some snow in the next few days. All the new people have been crammed into the cafeteria to stay warm. Since the events of the castle at the end of the world there is a lot more room in there now. Thinking about that soured my alone time with Beth. She knew something was going inside my head and just left it at that. We just sat in her living room holding each others hands listing to the fire crackle in the hearth. It was a nice way to end the day. A little before 10 I left for home tomorrow will be a early day and calling in sick is hard when your Dad is your boss.

Day 192 

Our expeditions to the castle at the end of the world was a failure. Of the over 50 people that left only 30 are coming home. We are injured, battered and will carry the trauma of these events forever. The rescue plan unlike or expedition was a success. Thanks to the two helicopter pilots and ev team all the injured will at least be coming home tonight. While the rest of us make a speedy journey back to camp Daikon. Tried but alive which is better than the 20 that lost their lives. (more…)

Day 188

From bad to worse that is how I would describe today. It turns those camouflaged monsters are nesting around here. The military tired to wipe out all the they could find. All that it did was draw the other arounds in the area to us. Someone started calling them Crypt Wisps and the name stuck. A few more got into the compound. No amount of bullets seem to take them out. One of them was just a pair of leg attached to a blown away upper half and were still walking after people. Not just walking but following the person. They don’t bleed or make any noise, but the slurping noise from that lamprey mouth of theirs. Being surrounded was not even the worst part about today. (more…)

Day 186

 

Dad woke me up early today to go on a special job with a group of other people. We went to the secondary site that was under construction before the collapse happen. At first I was excited to finally go check it out until we get on the road. My stomach was not a fan of the bumpy winding road that lead to it. Me and bumpy roads do not get along. The journey only took a few hours. I managed to keep my breakfast down just barley. Our traveling party consented on three council members and 20 military personnel. I had to ride in the back of a old truck which made my motion sickness so much worse. At least in a car seat you have some cushion. (more…)

All to do with Beth

Beth came from a your typical overworked household.  She was the youngest of two. Her mom was a office manager at a accounting firm. Never really home and when she was never off work.  Dad was no different he was a clinical laboratory scientist. The company he worked for kepted downsizing the staff to make their quarterly earnings reports look better.  You know what every company has been doing. Jobs are hard to find and even harder to keep. Unless you toe that company line. Her dad worked worse hours than her Mom. There was no aunts or uncles in this state and both grandparents had long since passed away.  Will did his best to take care of her. (more…)

Day  179

Mom was the first one up today and she knew right away something was wrong.  I was making breakfast when she sat down to ask if I was okay.  There was no point in hiding it, so I told her about my dream last night.  She told me that things will be okay and that it was just a dream.  It was hard to hold back my emotions.  At some point during our talk I started to cry and she gave me a huge hug.  The kind that only a Mom can give.  After our talk and breakfast was made Mom went to wake everyone up.  I did not want to face Lily, but knew I had to. (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…)

Day 141

The military made it to the compound today.  Most saw it as a welcome sight.  People cheered as the convoy rolled into town.  Three Humvees, two jeeps and a lot of normal cars drove right to Fremont’s home then circle and stopped.  That is when the last remaining  helicopters landed on the crude helipad we had made a few days before. Since the world has gone quiet it was no surprise that they were close.  We were officially occupied. (more…)
