Defense With The BoomStick

(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 to survive and to keep on living.)

Zombie problem solved.

With three zombies still chasing me around something had to give. I figured I could take on three zombies head on with the shotgun I got and so I did. Had them chasing me through the halls of the high school so they didn’t have a lot of room to move or dodge and just sent shell after shell down the hall, taking them all out.

With them out of the way I was free to move about the town in a somewhat relaxed state. I still listened for out of place sounds and kept to the shadows, minimizing the noise I made just in case. Even though I haven’t seen any zombies about except for those that followed me here, I still need to be safe. It's been nice to have the run of a small town without too much fear of being mauled by some pack of zombies and I have gotten a good bit done.

Found a lot of good supplies from water, canned goods and a little bit of medical supplies. Most of the medical supplies were Band-aids, gauze and some medicine, but most of it is past the expiration date. I've been putting stuff into a few duffels I found and am using that gator off-roader I found out by the football field. It's made moving about town a hell of a lot easier.

I circled back around to the city hall and found a survey map of the town that has all the houses and businesses marked on it. I've slowly been searching through the marking them off as I go in my search for supplies. Since only taking care of the zombies a few days ago I haven’t gotten too far in my search. Too many of these houses have such comfortable beds I usually search for a bit, setup my traps and defenses and crash for awhile.

With the amount of places I still need to search I don’t expect to leave this town for at least another week. I could cut and run now, but the state of the houses and business I have searched shows there is plenty of stuff I can use to survive. Especially if I can tune up that gator, as it hasn’t been ran in awhile; the entire time I've been using it the engine likes to sputter a bit. I'll have to find a manual on engines in the library to try and fix it to aid me in my trip through the mountains towards Reno.

Even though the threat of zombies is gone still not a lot of time to rest. Work, work, work to do.
