Defense with the BoomStick

(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 after being bitten and partially cured to walk as a half-zombie among them.)

Another long week this one has been as I've had to keep moving to lose my tail of bandits and radioactive zombies alike. After those bandit reinforcements showed up last week I hightailed it out of the area as fast as I could, not leaving much of a trail for them to follow. They did follow though and I managed to lose them only a few days ago to much relief, but somehow the radioactive zombies still managed to track me.

I had to hide out a few times to get them off my trail or leave things that sent them off in a different direction. Since losing both of these nuisances chasing me I've been lended the time to head towards my new objective of taking out another bandit hideout marked on the map I snagged a few weeks back.

This time around I have to make a better plan when I make my move on this new outpost so there isn’t the same outcome as last when I was ambushed by bandits. I thought I had a pretty damn good plan. I would make my way to the outpost furthest from where I was, thinking it would be underdefended, but damn was I wrong.

I was surprised when making my move on the place as I got flanked from both sides and about cut to pieces. My plan now is to completely confound them by making my way to one of their more heavily defended outposts. At least according to their map, and taking that one on. Rationale behind that is with the amount of people they mobilized to take me out at the other place this one shouldn’t be as defended.

I haven’t worked out the complete logistics of my attack plan as I am still a few days out from the new target. One thing I can say for certain is I'm going to blow the hell out of the place like I did the last and let every zombie around come on in to finish the carnage. The biggest worry I have with this plan is those damn radioactive zombies coming along and ruining it, as they have an uncanny knack to stumble upon places I have been.

They are damn tough to take down with how quick they move. Still a bullet to the head takes care of them all the same. I'm in the process of coming up with traps that could possibly work to either slow down, kill or trap them so maybe if any bandits come along they will fall into the trap as well.

On a positive note my zombie body has finally fully recovered and healed itself after all the injuries I got from the past few battles. Don’t know how it's regenerating since being part zombie, but I'm not complaining either. Could be that's why the super-ish zombies are after me--perhaps they smell something on me or can sense I am different. I still can’t figure that one out. l'll have to try and capture one of them and do some tests.

Until next week keep way or another.
