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.)

Year 5. Week 25.

A plan is what we needed.

Now I am not saying what we came up with would be the best way to do it, but we had to get those survivors out of those zombies’ hands. This was one mission that we knew it was tough to say the probability of us all making it back. No matter the odds, we still had to try and do something to help those people out.

We needed to act fast since the main zombie horde was still out of the city chasing the group that's still moving around. Some of the faster vehicles jetted ahead of the rest and looped around unseen by the zombies before meeting back up with us outside of Carson City. The plan is simple. We fly in a small group of fighters using the chopper doing one pass to drop weapons down to the survivors in the outside pinned in area. On top of that we had the folks in the chopper rope down to help organize the survivors and lead them out.

To aid in the escape the folks left in the helicopter are gonna drop some bombs to clear our path to where the vehicles are waiting. This is where the trickiness of getting out comes into play, as the zombies that remained are the worst kind as they have the radioactive ones mixed into this fight. With the gunfire, bombs going off, the moans of the undead, shouts of fear and the helicopter buzzing around it was damn chaotic in there.

I've seen some firefights with zombies over the past few years, but nothing was like that one. There were just zombies and bullets everywhere and we almost didn’t get anyone out of there--myself included. Of the five guys who got off the chopper with me and went in only two made it out. for the survivor side we got out about 260 out of there. The rest of them were recaptured, got separated from our group or were downright eaten by zombies that lost control.

Of the people we did manage to get out of the city we got them loaded up--some folks on top of each other where necessary--and got out of there. The helicopter provided us cover by keep the zombies occupied with all the gas bombs, Molotovs and pipe bombs they had to keep the zombies from following us. Now comes the part of figuring out where to get these people some shelter and supplies. The plan is to go back up near Reno to the secured area we have set up, but not sure if the infrastructure there can handle this influx of people. Plus staying this close to Carson City could be dangerous in the long run. Lots of decisions to get figured out.
