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 27.

A simple entry for today. Work's been busy. Folks have been burning the hard hours and getting it done. Not to say this week has not been without losses. A few people out on scouting missions had bad run-ins with zombies and we lost a few folks.

Between getting the defenses done up around here in our Reno location and organizing people around here to travel to a safer locations it’s been downright a madhouse going. For those who have gotten strong enough to travel will head out to Colorado to support and reinforce the survivor camp there. For those who can't travel yet, they are staying here to get stronger, but they are doing what they can around here so as not to be a burden.

More good news was received from those scout reports about the zombie movements. From the looks of things, it appears so far they are not heading anywhere near here and those zombies that managed to kill some of the scouts were taken out shortly thereafter. We've been digging trenches and trap holes all around on top of using the dirt to make walls and reinforcing the inner walls as well.

Once we get all the folks who can't stay and fight out of here we'll form our plan as to what to do about Carson City and the danger it presents. Keeping people alive is the most important thing to accomplish and doing whatever we can to get as many survivors out of here to a safer spot is key. Between the group in Colorado, northern California and the ski range mountains of California, we have plenty of survivor spots for them to go to and learn how to survive.

We are looking at other ways of defending ourselves and creating new defenses for us here. Some folks here are in the process of jury rigging homemade flamethrowers covering all the entrances. Those are still a work in progress, but every day we are getting them tweaked more to work hell of a lot better. Eventually this place will get attacked and possibly overrun, making an escape plan a damn necessary thing to have. Another item to work up and get to work on even if it's just escape tunnels that head out to a spot to meet up and get out of there.
