Journal Entry: Day 131

Day 130

So there’s this movie that came out a long time ago called Ben Hur. At one point in the Movie the Main Character is forced to row a Roman ship with other slaves. I am sure in another life Mom was one of those Romans forcing people to row. Mom has stepped her chore game to ten then made ten louder. All to get the landing site ready for the military that is comings. Dad had to step in a few times to remind her we needed to take a break every once in a while. Thankfully the Military is due to arrive tomorrow and the landing site made Moms level of standards last minute. To be fair everyone had been running around to get things ready as well. Security has hidden defenses everywhere incase the military is not the friendly one we once had, but the marauder one this world might have turn them into. Escape plans, triage sites, and secondary site have been setup. Incase we have to rebuild or attacked. Everyone in the whole compound has been running around so much you would think that the Charred would take this opportunity to attack. I think the only reason why things have been  quiet is that they would have been put to work to. I could imagine it now. A huge wave of Charred showing up and Mom giving them chores.. Having them plow the fields, wash the roof of the cabins and digging new septics lines. The Charred saw what she was doing to her own kids and porably deicded that Mom was doing a good enough job causing misery.

 

The plan for tomorrow is for Linutent Maxfield to come with two helicopters. One will be carrying him and the other guards. He is to make contact with us at 0600 hours or 6am. Which is smart the Sun will hide there approach. Then they will head to Fremont’s home where they will hold talks. Lieutenant Maxfield will be accompanied with his guards from his helicopter and the men in the second will stay to protect the helicopters. Mr.Miller the retired marine said we should expect them early or at least a fly by. He also told us that they could arrive  today to throw us off. Normal military tactics to throw us off if we planned on attacking them when we they got here. Dad will be joining Fremont at the landing site. While these talks are going on we are to stay in the cabins unground bunker. Incase we need we are attacked. Each shelter has been restocked with provisions to withstand a siege for a while if need be. A few other families will be stationed in vehicles hidden in the woods. To make a break for a secondary site that is deeper in the forest. Fremont was setting up that place when whatever caused monsters to be real happend. Most of it is unfinished, but habitable. I have never been to that place. With my car sickness it makes sense though. I bet those are not the most stomach friendly roads. Now it is time for bed Mom is going to be getting us up in a few hours to get ready for tomorrow’s excitement. Beth will be joining us in our shelters. Which means if tomorrow is going to be the end at least I will be close to her when it is time to face it.

Journal Entry: Day 125

Day 125

It has taken some time, but I can finally write with my left hand again. I would not call my writing legible yet, but it would pass for a kindergartener.  I came home five days ago.  It was so embarrassing to be wheelchair from the medical facility back to our cabin. I was still getting a little light headed at times, so no long walks for me.  At least Mom let Beth and Courtney push me around.  It was the same wheelchair Lily had been using.  Lily started walking around again with the help of a cane Mr.Miller made for her.  I knew I was almost done with my road to recovery when Mom started giving me chores again two days ago.  Courtney has been helping me with that and it is nice to be back to somewhat normal.  She keeps telling me I still owe her for the goat. I had no idea what she was talking about until she gave me back my journal.  To be honest I had forgotten about it the last couple of days.  Almost dying to an infection, and losing two fingers hasn’t sparked the writer in me.  My eyesight in my left eye has returned which is great! Everything is healing nicely I even got some of the big stitches removed. Some of those stitches were driving me crazy.  I had a nice size gash in the middle of my back. Oh how it itched so bad at times.  I could not reach it without the help of door frames or trees. Mom would yell at me every time I did the bear dance.  You know the bear dance where put your back to a tree and rub up and down on it.

 

Later in the day Dad took me with him to do help complete the set up on some sensors he had set up around the camp.  Nothing to hard just hand him the screwdriver or hold the flashlight.  Near the end of the rounds we made it to the security/comms room. Only to find it was packed with people.  At some point today the Radios came back online and not the short range one, but the long range.  Mr.Jack had made contact with a military base!  It didn’t take long before almost everyone in the compound was huddled in the room or close to the building. It was just great to hear that there was other pockets of humanity still around. The man that Mr.Jack was talking to was Colonel Mike Rives from the 101 Airborne. Dad and I stayed quite and tried to be flys on the wall, but soon everyone that wasn’t security, Dad or Fremont got kicked out of the room.  Dad had me go back to our cabin and wait for him there. My hand was starting to hurt, so it was time for my medicine.  I hate taking pain medicine, but I am in too much pain without it.  

 

Beth was at the Cabin when I got there.  She was on Brooke babysitting duty today. Brooke was finger painting with Beth in the kitchen.  Kids toys are hard to come by let alone finger paint.  When you are in survival situation fingers paints are not on the top of list. Which is a shame for Brooke.  Coloring, and painting are her favorite things to do. Brooke had know that this was a treat.  It  was the cleanest I have ever seen her Paint not a drop was wasted. Which is amazing on top of where Beth got her hands on the paint in the first place.  I had to know where Beth got it.  Turns out that this old summer camp we are at used to have a art room. Beth found it was still full of art supplies. I had to promise to keep it a secret though.  If more people ever show up with kids art supplies will alway be worth a trade.  Once Brooke was done with her purple tiger with yellow spots it was time for a nap.  I also joined in the nap this pain medicine just knocks me out.  I woke up later tonight just in time for a home meeting with Mom and Dad.

 

Dad rounded the whole family up and even had the Robinson join us tonight.  Which means Will and Beth were there.  Beth showed up in a nice knee length dress with her auburn hair done in a single braid down her back. Her dress made her bright green eye stand out.  Had Dad not brought up happened with the radio call today she would have been the only thing I would have noticed.  We have been secretly dating for a little while.  Thank you for the help with that Courtney I sure do owe for that one.  Back to the Radio though.  Did I mention Beth smelled of lavenders I am so lucky she would date me.  Sorry again.  Dad said that in a few days the military will make face to face contact with us. Colonel Rives will be sending his first lieutenant Maxfield to make the meeting.  They will be coming here by helicopter, so we needed to clear a landing site for them.  Which mean Mom is going to go into max chore mode to get that done.  We discussed some more of the plans, but as you can tell I was distracted with other things.  Then the Robinson headed back to their cabin for the night.  I went with Beth to walk her home and got to hold her hand the whole time.  I even got a hug before she went inside. Then it was back our cabin to go to bed Mom is sure to crack the whip starting tomorrow.

Day 113

Those centipede monsters claimed the lives of four people. Three people were dragged off  and one person died of his injuries. A couple of the braver men went down into tunnels to see if they could track down where the bugs came from.  It did not take long for them to track down and finish the hive off. That was the last of the attacks for now. The charred were all defeated and the rest of the ghouls taken care off. Finally a chance to get some rest and not worry about things coming from the woods or under our feets. There was even some good news. The nurse that was taken last night was found alive. The question is how did these things tunnel under the camp so fast? Dad gave some insight into that.

 

It turns out this campground has been around for a long time. Before it was a spot for vacationing doomsday preppers and summer campers it belonged to some people that had different views on how the law should be interrupted. The original owners had underground passages dug all around the surrounding area. That is why Fremont  bought the land once it came up for sell. He knew about its origins. Fremont reinforced the areas he wanted to use and closed down all the other parts. It makes sense now why some of the cabins have shelters underground that are connected to others. This seems like something would Cody know about. I bet Dad has taken him on tours while Cody was working for him.  I should be angry at Dad and Mom for not telling me about this, but who could have guessed there would be monsters that could use the tunnels against us. Like when Fremont was planning this he had a incase monsters become real clauses in his designs. Once last hive underground was cleared out plans were made to seal the mines. Some of the Tunnels could not be sealed, so traps and motion detectors were set up. Then it was time to bury the deceased on the hill with the others. I didn’t join the them at the grave site.

Recommendation and Ratings 

If you like self help, adversing, or how to market a book this book could be for you.  Over all I give this book 2/5 stars.  The paragraph structure will drive you crazy,  it needs an editor and is a little too over priced for the length that it is.  If you type in a search engine how to make passive income you can get most of the information that is in this book for free or better.  I am going to honest I bought this book on an impulse. Thinking it would give me some insight in the stock market that I did not already know.  It did not have anything on the market. There is a lot of repetiton in this book to make it longer.  This book is more of a overgrown pamlet with a 3.99 price tag. Now if you can get passed the terrible editing there are some nuggets of knowledge. Some of the insights on book marketing were good. Also how to price a book when you release a new book was interesting. If you are intrested in learning about how to launch a new book or marketing it here is a way better place to go instead. Book-Marketing-101-for-beginners

Day 100 part 2

The attack happened soon after Fremont arrived. The monsters looked just like people. At first I was excited to see more people alive and joining the rescue party back home. It shocked me when Fremont picked up a rifle and started firing at them. The other guards were in shocked to and tried to stop him thinking he went mad. All the while Fremont yelling that those things are not human anymore and don’t stop firing. There was a large group of them running towards the checkpoint. As they got closer to us you could see what ever  made them humans had long gone. The guards holding Fremont noticed this and let him go. Once Fremont and the two guards were clear everyone started firing at the monsters. We kept shooting until a call for ceasefire. 1 of the ghouls still stood. The final attacker was still slowly making its way to us. I got a good look at it and I wish I hadn’t. Its eyes were feverish and wild. There was no blood coming from its many wounds only dark ichor. We watch as it slowly made its way to us. This was indeed a monster from my nightmares made real. Lily picked up the M45 carefully aim for the head and brought it down. The fight was over we had won.

 

Fremont told us that this was just the first wave and more were on their way. I asked Fremont where my Dad was? He said that Dad was inside the Van that he sent to the mess hall. Dad was holding pressure on a wound Miller received. Fremont excused us to go see him. Lily and I ran the whole way there. Adrenalin still coursing through us. Dad was outside the mess hall and he looked tried. His cloth were covered in dirt and blood. Once he saw us he ran up to meet us. He give us the biggest hug ever. He smelled awful, but at least he was home safe! Lily started to cry and so did I. Dad was back and it seemed like the world was a little safer again. Even though we just fought some new threat Dad was here. There was so many things I wanted to ask him, but they had to wait. Fremont  was on the radio saying that every able body was to report to the front gate to start preparing for the next attack. Dad looked tried again. Like he had not rested in months. It was time to prepare for the real battle that was coming.

Journal Entry: Day 100 part 1

Day 100

Courtney spotted the signal flare first. The bright orange glow lingered in the sky for all us to see. Camp security was running around to secure all the entrance to the compound. After an hour  there was another flare this time closer to us. Mom had Beth take Brooke into the shelter under the cabin with Will. Even though we could use the the help to defend Will and Beth have not completed the proper training to handle a firearm. The worst thing you can do is give someone a weapon that doesn’t understand the dangers of using it. Barricades were set up around the choke points to limit the amount of things that could get in. The compounds security detail start to pull out the heavier weapons. While this could just be someone in need of help it could also be bandits marking the path to get to us. The medical staff coordinated to setup up a triage center in case of wounded. Mom joined the medical team to help treat the injured. Most people don’t understand that a veterinarian is capable on working on almost all animals humans included. Lily and I had the honor of joining the front gate team.

 

It was intense as the flares got closers. All the while Lily and I built a fox hole and ran ammo from ours to others fortifications . I had 3 different types of firearms with me. The Barrett M95, a M249 belt fed machine gun, and my side arm the laser pistol. I also had a trench knife with me incase it came down to hand to hand combat. Which I really didn’t  want it to come to that. The two guards maning the check point where decked out in combat gear I have never seen before. Both of them looked like they have seen combat. It did not take long for the party responsible for launching those flares to come driving slowly up to the checkpoint. Their vehicle looked like it was in an accident and packed with people. The guards told them to stop and Identify  themselves. The Driver compiled and told them Fremont was with them and he wanted to get out of the back passenger side door to talk. Weapon drawn the garud allowed a person to exit the vehicle. Cautiously Fremont exited the vehicle and haggard. Most of his body covered in dirty bandages. He told the guards everything was okay and to let these people inside the camp. Then he said something that didn’t make sense and the guards relaxed. Must have been a secret passcode incase he was a hostage. The people were told to drive to the mess hall  to get checked out by the medical staff. There must have been over 20 people crammed inside that van stacked on top of each other. Fremont asked for the radio and told everyone listing what was going, and to be ready for an attack. The charred are coming.

 

 

Journal Entry: Day 99

Day 99

It was late when the alarms when off.  Mom did a surprise Emergency Disaster Drill or E.D.D. No one played around this time.  I think we set a new all time record for quickest entry into the cabins underground shelter.  We beat Mom into the shelter and almost locked her out. The best part was when Will and Lily came out of Lily’s bedroom together.  Mom didn’t see that part but the rest sure did. You could see from a mile away that Lily and Will were trying to hide something. After the drill was over we got to go back to bed.  Mom was happy with the results. Though she did stop Will as everyone was heading back to their rooms for the night. She wanted to take a closer look at the large purple bruise on his neck. Will told mom that he tripped and hit the door knob during the drill.  I covered for Lily and told Mom that is what happened. Pretty sure Mom didn’t believe it. Also to prevent another door knob related injury she took my door away! You know the room Will is supposed to be staying in. This almost puts the debt I owe Lily to even in my books.

 

Mom is merciless when it comes to sleep.  You would think after waking us all up for a E.D.D we would get to sleep in.  Nope she just got us up even earlier. The sun wasn’t even up yet why should I!  She sent us to the farm to go tend to the animals. Milk the few cows, feed the chickens and clean out the stalls.  Yeah she knew where that bruise on Wills neck came from. Mr.Meza came by a little later to tell us another round of those bugs attacked during the night.  He chased them down and followed them to their hive by himself. Have to make a note of never getting on this guys bad side. Then Courtney and I went got the task of fixing the chicken coop.  While in the tool shed a shadowy figure jumped out at us. Courtney screamed and ran away while it had me dead to rights. Thankfully It was just a ranch cat that was sleeping. We woke it up and it had to take some sort of revenge. The guards on duty had a good laugh about that. It seems like this cat does this to people on a regular basis. Courtney did not think that was funny. The coop was easy to fix and Mom gave Courtney, Beth and I the rest of the day off. Will and Lily on the other hand had a special work detail with Mom inside the Medical station.

Courtney, Beth and I had already started making dinner for everyone when Lily and Will came home. Mom made them watch a old navy film about the horrors of STDs. Lily watched it before, but it was new for Will. He was as white as a ghost and looked like he just got done throwing up his lunch. Yep Mom did know how he got that bruise. Which mean if I ever get the courage to ask Beth out Mom might make me watch that video to. Before everyone went to bed Mom tried to reach Dad on the radio again. He still has not checked in. This is two days in a row. What is going to happen if the rescue party needs to be rescued? Tomorrow is the earliest they should be back from their trip to save the Gonzales. Maybe the radio got busted or they are in stealth mode trying to be as quiet as possible. What I find strange is all the other radio channels are quiet to.

Day 98

Even with it  still running Mom kept us busy. Today in class we went over how to insert an IV again, splinting and  human anatomy. Then we cataloged and organized all the medical supplies for the medical station. After that we remade all the first aid kits and placed them in key spots around the camp. On foot in the rain to every corner of the camp. Once all that was done she ran a mock medical code. Mom made us do five full cycle of CPR each. Doing CPR is one of the most intense workouts ever!  Why can’t Mom give us a easy task. Good news the dummy made it. Then we spent the rest of the day making bread for everyone in camp. Dad did not check in at night. Mom tried for a good long while to reach him and only got static. From last night’s talk they should have reached the Gonzales today. I hope Dad is safe wherever he is.
