My situation summary:
Here I thought this was just an "Economic collapse". Boy was I wrong...The MSM downplayed this as usual..
I couldn't believe it when I woke up and finally saw the zombie apocalypse happening before my very eyes! It wasn't what I expected, I had always
thought it would be easy to bash a zombies skull in. I was forced to fight several off when they tried to break in to my small house. (they eventually
succeeded) Before then, I was "bugging in" just fine until that point.. The hardest part was rounding up family members (and others trying to survive
on the way) and establishing a perimeter that encircled a 2 city-block area. I had never owned a firearm, but some people in our new found community
were not in short supply. We were in a city (formerly?) known as Colorado Springs, surrounded by military bases.
We had expected the military to fight them off, and they did...for a while. Sooner or later, Ft. Carson, as well as Peterson AFB were overran
by infections, both bases are now riddled with zombies. Last we heard, NORAD (Cheyenne mountain) is still operational but on lock-down, no civilians
allowed in, and no military personnel allowed out. Last week, our entire community was overran, there were just too many! What little survivors left
had scrambled. A decent sized city is not a good place to be any longer.. I have my son and two other family members with me. We are ok on supplies
now, but this situation will surely change soon. I managed to grab what I could, but there wasn't much left, and scavenging the city is now out of the
question. Here are the supplies we currently have:
2 mid-sized vehicles. (20-30 mpg average, vehicle 1 is on half tank, vehicle 2 is 3/4 full)
2 10 gallon gas cans (full)
About 30 cans of various canned goods
5 packets of top ramen
Evaporated milk (bleh)
8 gallons of water (water is ok, plenty of snow-pack available where we are)
3 9mm handguns (we could use some training on this)
Baseball bat (aluminum)
Toolkit (standard and metric socket sets, hammer, 4 screwdrivers flat and phillips, tape measure, etc)
The clothes on our backs +2 changes
1 Xbox360 (Yeah it's useless, but since I couldn't salvage my new electronic drum kit, I figured I'd take at least ONE piece of modern memorabilia
just in case... )
Earlier this month, I had briefly heard over the transponder that someone was in Southern Colorado by the name of "ElizaAshdene".. I only heard it
briefly as I was busy these past few weeks as you can see.....
ATS Transponder: "sczzz *pop* Hello ATS? I'm looking for "ElizaAshdene", I understand you are in the southern Rockies? We were overrun, we took
flight from Colorado Springs and are heading west on US Hwy 24. Currently, we plan to stop around Green Mountain Falls to situate ourselves. We are OK
at the moment, but will be in need of supplies and new fortifications soon. Please respond with your 20! Over."
