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 26.

While we were gone the people back at the base outside of Reno were busy at work. They were able to build up the walls higher and thicker with reinforcing material to keep them upright when a mass of zombies are pushing against them. Additionally, they expanding the wall out some to encompass more land so all those folks we rescued have a place to stay while we figure out our next move.

They were able to accomplish all this while we fought the zombies in Carson City and had them pursuing a group around the desert. It also helped when another band of survivors from northern California came over, bringing some much needed supplies from the land up that way. All of this will go a long way to getting the people we rescued back into fighting and surviving shape for the fight ahead. Being this close to Carson City is not going to be a smart long term plan with all the zombies still left there.

Either we are going to fight them all to clear it out or everyone here will have to leave in the near future before those zombies manage to find this place and surround it. If long term survival is to last here think we are going to need to connect our water supply to a lake that's forty miles or so from us. That plan though is definitely not on the top of the list as the zombies in Carson City are sitting there. Sooner or later, they'll wander this way...I can feel it. Or the radioactive zombies who seemed to have been controlling the rest will figure it out and come this way.

Whether or not they figure out what’s going on and where we are means trouble will be coming our way. If we're sticking around here, a lot more defenses will have to be built in addition to traps; anything to slow down a horde of zombies helps us by thinning them out. I think if we work hard enough can get some IED’s built and start burying them out in the desert area orientated in the direction the zombies would most likely come from. With this many people in one spot it would be too tempting a target for zombies to find their way to us.

From the looks of some of the survivors we rescued they are going to have to go to a more secure location then this. I think some of the group from Colorado are going to head back soon and will take some of the survivors with them. Which will help out in having less survivors around here to look after and make sure they are taken cared of; also not have to worry about protecting them if a zombie attack happens.

This situation I find myself in takes me back to when this all first began and the little spot I had in North Dakota. If only good days can continue around here. frack a day is never over until you pass out form exhaustion.
