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.)

It's odd to feel good for once in a week went according to plan.

Rain stopped a day after holding up in that empty bus and no zombies showed up the entire time I was there...all good news. Managed to make up all the time lost because of the storm, getting to the coast of Lake Erie to find a boat and made it across to Canada on my way to Lake Superior.

Might sound kinda dumb but I actually found a mo-ped on the side of the road in working order that helped me out immensely to make up the time I lost. I managed to make it to this small town named Dunkirk on the edge of the lake. Found an abandoned hospital there that still had some supplies to aid me and keep the zombie side in check.

Among the hospital, a Wal-greens and a thrift store I found tons of stuff to help me out. I find it odd the amount of supplies this place had, as I figured with this zombie apocalypse happening almost four years ago most smaller towns would have been picked clean already.

Spent most of this past week moving about the town as quietly and slowly as I could just to make sure. With those radioactive zombies and their intelligence you can never know if one is right around the corner or trying to set up an ambush. Feels like the longer they survive the more clever they get in hunting down survivors and in hunting me.

Thankfully I've only seen a few regular zombies milling about that a few quick whacks to the head with a crowbar takes care of them. Still haven't seen any other survivors though; in fact I haven’t seen another living soul since that mass exodus back on the other side of the wall before the bombs dropped.

I aim on holding out here for a few days near the shore, waiting for a bit more sun. The rain has stopped but the clouds still look pretty menacing and being out in the middle of a Great Lake is no place to be if a major storm hits. Besides why give up a bit of comfort if I don’t have too?

Living like this reminds me a bit of the spot I used to have almost two years ago. Wow it’s been that long since I was living with a large group of survivors out west being self-sustained and making a hearty go of it. If only there was power could watch a movie or something.

Back to scavenging for me.

Just have to take care of this shambler that is stumbling past my window…
