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 42.

War has begun again. The plan of cleaning out smaller towns in northern California and southern Oregon has brought about a radical change in zombie behavior. Since last week we've been finding larger and larger zombie groups. The shocking part is where these zombies are coming from; as we've found items on their persons that would signify originating on the east coast and southeast parts of the country.

At the moment there's no telling how or why they've traveled all this way. It could have just taken this many years for them to make it to this side of the country or maybe something was driving them this way. Hell, they could have just saw one zombie walking this way and started following until bam--here they all are. The problem is they're here now and we have to deal with them or else they'll see something else and start off in another direction. Who knows what sort of damage or destruction they left in their wake heading out this way, but we want to keep it to just that and no more.

Instead of sticking around this area and waiting for such a large force of zombies to head our way and pick the battlefield for us we got a new plan in play. We're going to load up as many people, supplies, weapons and gear as we can and head east. Plan on going back on the offensive on a larger scale because I fully believe if we are known to be in the same general area those radioactive zombies will amass a force of zombies even larger than what was in Carson City and come after us. With a force that large there will be no way we can win; sure will take out a shit ton of them, but will still lose in the end.

If that were to go down I don’t think we would be able to rebound.

I would say our plan is shock and awe, but zombies cannot be shocked or awed; just killed. The government forces have a few satellites still up there floating around and are putting them at our disposal. While we get geared up and mobilized they're going to begin scanning across the country, trying to locate any large hordes of zombies. When we find them aerial bombardment will take place to wipe out as many as possible and then the ground forces are going to sweep in and take out the rest. This is going to be the only way to start clearing out the country, by taking out the larger groups first leaving pockets here and there behind.

Only then can we begin to build back up and organize people together again. Because right now large groups of survivors only draw zombies toward, them putting everyone there in danger and with those radioactive bastards able to think, plan and plot no place is 100% safe until they are all gone. Only then will the zombies become manageable and able to be dealt with more easily, letting us repopulate and grow our civilization again. We just have to make sure to deal with any outbreak quickly and without mercy.

The end of this fight is within our sights. That is something I thought might not be seen in my lifetime, but the way it's going it's more than a possibility of coming to fruition.
