Landsford to the rescue – Post 16 – The Zombie Series

Posted 15 Aug 2014 in ZombieRun

So remember that semi from up north that I posted a picture of a week ago? Well it was towed back through the north gate this morning short a few people that had been on it. From what I gathered they damaged the transmission and couldn’t get passed 3rd gear. For those of you who have never been in one of those trucks the gears really matter and there are a lot of them. Not being able to go past 3rd most likely meant they couldn’t go too much above 3 miles per hour. Throw in the average shambling speed of a deader being between 1 to 4 miles per hour and you see the issue. Not really sure...

Jello? Say it ain’t so – Post 15 – The Zombie Series

Posted 09 Aug 2014 in ZombieRun

Did you know that they still have jello in the hospital? Seriously jello though it really didn’t have any flavor to it. I  had orange which, is supposed to taste like oranges but I haven’t seen an orange since before the uprising. Citrus isn’t a mainstream crop in the Midwest you know. Still it was surprising to have some. Oh don’t worry, it isn’t anything serious just popped a few stitches and had an infection starting on my side wound. Basically it all just wound up being a follow-up visit that required 6 of the 18 stitches to be fixed up and I got lunch out of the deal. In all that wasn’t that bad of a afternoon. Swung...

Arrived Alive – Post 14 – The Zombie Series

Posted 03 Aug 2014 in Ramblings, ZombieRun

Well you are reading this so guess you know what that means. I survived! It was a rough run but managed to make it through with a few other people. Did see a few bodies laying on the ground along the way but it was expected. Just glad I wasn’t one of them. This run was a little different than the previous runs I had seen and heard about. Everyone chosen to run arrived at the gate around 8:45 yesterday morning. Most people came on their own accord but there were a few that clearly came against their will. Most of those people I would see laying on the ground later so I’m not going to dwell on them...

Talk with you after the run? – Post 13 – The Zombie Series

Posted 02 Aug 2014 in ZombieRun

The following is a fictional account leading up to the Zombie Run I will be running on August 2. If you ask a question though it will be answered from within the universe this story is set.  Tomorrow is the day I either make it through the run or get taken down by a group of the deaders and well, when you hit the ground things go south really fast. Trying to decide on what to wear still, not sure if I want to gear up or stay loose.  Leaning more towards staying loose so I have more mobility to dodge or whatnot.  I understand the theory of being fully covered for bites and all but not all bites from...

Biking and Trucking – Post 12 – The Zombie Series

Posted 01 Aug 2014 in ZombieRun

The following is a fictional account leading up to the Zombie Run I will be running on August 2. If you ask a question though it will be answered from within the universe this story is set.    Taking it easy right before the run on Saturday, don’t want to do something stupid like twist an ankle, pull a muscle or anything bad like that. Did go for a bike ride though and that has been a long time. Not because I just haven’t done it but up until yesterday I didn’t have a working bike. The one that I did have had a bent front wheel and was pretty much useless. As you can imagine finding spare parts...

Henderson Bridge – Post 11 – The Zombie Series

Posted 31 Jul 2014 in ZombieRun

The following is a fictional account leading up to the Zombie Run I will be running on August 2. If you ask a question though it will be answered from within the universe this story is set.    History update. Managed to take a breather on my run last night and took a picture of the Henderson Bridge, named after Veronica Henderson who was one of the original members of the Marksmen Militia way back during the uprising. She stood watch on this bridge longer than anyone else and during one extremely bad week she didn’t leave the post for almost a week. You see this was one of the checkpoints where refugees would travel in from when they...

The Map – Post 10 – The Zombie Series

Posted 28 Jul 2014 in ZombieRun

The following is a fictional account leading up to the Zombie Run I will be running on August 2. If you ask a question though it will be answered from within the universe this story is set.  The steaks were amazing in case you happened to be wondering about them. Did quite a lot of grilling this weekend so they are gone as well. The last time I had a steak cut that way was before the uprising happened. There is a reason red meat isn’t widely available these days but still, man was that some good stuff. Sure it just reconfirms the fact that there are people a little higher up the food chain that get better food...

Butcher Paper – Post 9 – The Zombie Series

Posted 25 Jul 2014 in ZombieRun

The following is a fictional account leading up to the Zombie Run I will be running on August 2. If you ask a question though it will be answered from within the universe this story is set.    Well it’s been a busy week of training, working, eating lately. Good news, I got out of the cubicle at least. Since I have that pending job outside the wall coming up if I make it through the run the Colonel  Bailey reassigned me so I have been doing security runs with Jackson. Been a mostly quite week as well. The protestors are still going strong but no one is really paying attention to them. They have pretty much just set...

A Butcher & A Comment – Post 8 – The Zombie Series

Posted 17 Jul 2014 in ZombieRun

The following is a fictional account leading up to the Zombie Run I will be running on August 2. If you ask a question though it will be answered from within the universe this story is set.  Had a bit of a cold snap roll through here this week. If I didn’t know what actual date was I would have thought we had moved into fall already. Good news though, it didn’t get that cold, just dropped down to the 50’s or so during the night so the big tomatoes are doing well even though they are still green. Did have a bunch of cherry tomatoes turn red in the last few days though and they are tasty!  Ran...

Waste of Paper – Post 7 – The Zombie Series

Posted 10 Jul 2014 in ZombieRun

The following is a fictional account leading up to the Zombie Run I will be running on August 2. If you ask a question though it will be answered from within the universe this story is set.  Well it looks like the protests are getting ready to start up again since there was a flyer on my door this morning.  Apparently there is going to be a gathering later today where they get together and whine about the run or something. I just tossed the paper in the recycler so it could be turned into something useful. Not sure if any of the neighbors got it or if I was just the lucky one.Anyhow in other news, looks like...
