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.)

Sometimes I get the feeling I can’t leave anywhere that doesn’t end up being burned down, blown up or outright demolished. I'm kinda waiting for this luck of mine to eventually run out and have me in a situation with no clue as to how to get out of it.

I bring this up as that lakeside inn I was resting up in last weekend ran into a bit of trouble. Long story short a combination of some gasoline I found with the remainder of the C4 I had left over made for a nice big bomb.

It wasn’t a nuclear bomb blast, but it did take out the inn, the building next to it and a good rest of the block with a ton of zombies in the process. I still don’t get where they came from either; t was quiet for a good part of the week until yesterday afternoon.

I was on the roof doing a recon of the area when I saw a few zombies come out of the fringe woods and up the road. At first didn’t think much of it; I figured I just had to keep a low profile and not make much noise and maybe they will just shuffle through.

I must have spent three hours on that roof just watching them and I swear it seemed like they were searching every building or at least nosing around each one. Gave me the feeling that they were searching for something or perhaps just me and it also gave me chills to the fact these shamblers might be getting smarter.

This kind of behavior I would expect from the radioactive zombies who have shown signs of intelligence and tactics. Shamblers though have always proven dumb and didn’t bother me so long as I've been infected with the zombie side. This group of about thirty zombies though seemed to be moving pretty methodically through the town.

I managed to figure how long it would take for them to get to the building I was on and planned accordingly with my bit of gas and explosives. Like I said it was a damn big explosion and I think I got them all with hopefully these being the only shamblers who are showing a level of intelligence.

I am currently sitting a bit off of shore catch my breath and taking a breather after that destruction...oh wait one is getting up… BAM!!! Got it. I better get the hell out of here while the getting is good. Time to start rowing. Would give anything for a freaking motor right about now.
