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.)

Ammo? Good.

Medicine? Good.

Food & Water? At least a few months worth.

Things have been looking up around here. Working together we've consolidated all the gear and useful equipment into the strongest building. We're reinforcing it as we go along, making sure there aren’t any weak points just in case there is a zombie breach of the fence.

With most of this past week's focus being on consolidating and improving everything on the inside of the fence, we decided to turn our attention towards the outside. Started laying traps and pitfalls for zombies using burned out cars as walls to at least funnel them to where we want them to go. Ever since that push of zombies a week or two back, there haven’t been too many recently, which has allowed us the time to get more fortifications done.

We've even been able to go out hunting zombies too. Since they weren’t coming to us we went out a few hours a day and hunted down any and all zombies we could find. Thankfully all the zombies we've come across were shamblers and none of them were the radioactive zombies. If some of them were around I'm sure things would have been going a lot less smoothly as those are some smart enemies.

Speaking of the traps we've set up, we used some of the solar panels from buildings not in use and rigged up wires to electrify the fences. This has made for some entertaining moments seeing zombies hit them. One issue that has come up is when too many hit it at the same time the charged batteries take a hit and lose some juice. Need to figure out a way to get a gas generator hooked into the loop too, just in case the solar powered batteries fail when too many zombies are touching the fence.

As always more to do in a day than time to get it all done. It feels great to have some optimism for once and not fear waking up only to find a world more dangerous and deadlier then the day before.
