(Disclaimer: This post is an ongoing story set in a world where zombies have taken over and people are fighting to survive anyway they can. Originally it was a post of news and tips to help survivors make it one more day alive, but now it has became a story of my fight to survive and to keep on living.)
Year 5. Week 49.
Reinforcements have arrived and they couldn’t have come at a better time.
People from the Oklahoma survivor group and the government forces from Washington state made it here this morning. As we’ve incorporated them into the routines, they're bringing with them a renewed sense of invigoration that was sorely missed after the losses we suffered. So far we've been reinforced, rearmed and ready to take the fight back to those bastard zombies.
Now we have everything around this base running and finely tuned; it's time to turn our eyes back to the skies and find our next target. Sure, Amarillo was a bit of a disaster, but we did accomplish our objective of killing zombies--especially the radioactive zombies that can lead other zombies. Those are the highest priority targets we are searching for and only in killing all of them can we truly win this war.
Now, our eyes are back towards the satellites we have operating above, scanning a wide swath of the United States. They're looking for any hints of zombie masses out there that can be tracked, followed and utterly destroyed. Based on what we already found in Texas, one satellite is dedicated to stay on top of it, looking forward south towards the larger cities. Dallas, Houston and San Antonio were all bombed pretty heavily.
We're going to be scanning smaller cities and towns, looking for any sight of zombies; it appears those are the type of spots zombies have been getting noticed more and more. Guess the radioactive zombies realized massing in large cities does allow them hiding places, but also allows us to bring buildings and mass destruction on them. Beyond Texas we're going to continue scanning the midwest.
That way we can focus on clearing the area around us in the short term, until we can find a new base of operations further east. Otherwise, we'll be cutting ourselves off if we go too far east without a proper support structure in place. Come to think of it, that has to be one of our side goals as we scan towards the east coast is to find a suitable spot to build a new outpost base. I would suggest the one I had in Kansas City on the old Google fiber campus, but that one was attacked by bandits. Maybe it could still work; a visit will have to be paid there once we get visuals of what’s going on. I do hate living fighting the living, but sometimes you're left with no choice.
