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.)

Now this is an interesting development.

We're about a two day walk from our camp and what we came across I didn’t think exists anymore. An actual bandit group is camped out on the freeway. I count about fifteen with four vehicles among them.

There are a few guns spread out to perhaps half their group with a mixture of handguns, shotguns and one scoped rifle. My scout party and I are in the tree line as we have been for the past few hours. Not sure how long they've been camped out here or what might have brought them into the area, but we cannot discount the possibility they are looking for the spot we have.

They have a van full of ammo and supplies.

I figured we would just watch them to make sure they don’t get anywhere near us and stay on them until they leave the area, but now it might be worthwhile to see if we can get closer. I could be wrong about them being bandits, but they don’t exactly look to be of the "ready to help" variety of survivor. Those supplies would really come in handy, just the act of getting them will be one hell of a mission to try and do.

There are only two others besides me and John here and four against fifteen doesn’t sound the best odds. I’m still kind of shocked we haven’t seen many zombies with the amount of noise this bunch has been making on top of their vehicles. The past few hours we've seen them take out at most eight or nine zombies that wandered towards them. They were dispatched with brutal efficiency that made me realize they're not very nice survivors.

This group definitely demands more surveillance to see what they're up too. It’s going to be a long day and possible night.
