I am at the Great Dunes Sand Park in Colorado. I have been here now for just over a week. I have been living off of pika and marmont meat. The reason
why I have come here during the outbreak, is because I thought the diverse climate would be suitable for thriving during my attempt to evade zombies.
I also thought that though I may run into a few, or even several, zombies... over all I should be safe due to the some-what desolate location and the
governmental laws protecting much of any civilization from inhabiting the area. I have lost all contact with my family. Before the outbreak I lived at
home with 3 others back in Colorado Springs. My mother figure worked in the health system, and was lost almost immediately in the outbreak. Her
husband was drafted to the military and I haven't seen or heard from him since day 2 of the outbreak. My poor and beloved sibling fell very ill on
the 3-week trek to the sand dunes, and ended up getting mutilated by ravenous human-zombies. Now it is just me, and I have only a few supplies left
from when I started my journey. These include:
37 American dollars
1 Samsung Gravity cell- phone w/ charger
1 3g 8gig Apple iPod w/charger
Personal Identification Card
TI-89 Titanium Graphing Calculator
1 roll of slightly used duct tape
a handful of Na(OH) tablets
Clothes on me and in possession include:
(Sweats, Jeans, 2 shirts, 4 pairs of socks and boxers)
pika and marmont for 1 person (3 day supply, give or take)
1 empty can (used to be Arizona)
1 bottle of Dr. Pepper (1 L)
5 bottles of lake water (.75 L each)
(and of course) my ATS transponder
Water is plentiful for me as I am residing next to a lake (I think it is called Sand Creek Lake, there was a broken sign labeled this about 10 minutes
walk from the edge of the lake). I am containing the water in my water bottles, and I use my Arizona can for boiling
All items are contained in a back pack and my pockets.
Now I am wandering through the diverse terrain of the Dunes, contemplating my next move in life. Should I stay put and survive, or should I seek
others and live? My transponder got wet in the initial travels to this location. Since this, it has been fussy. I haven't even looked at it in the
past few days but now I am getting itchy to talk to someone real, so I put the batteries in the transponder and try it again.
ATS transponder: "Hello? This is PhysicsAdept. I am looking for any other civil life. I have plenty of water and have access to food. I am skilled
with math, and am teaching myself Archery through fashioned materials I have found in the wilderness. I am currently in Sand Dunes National Park,
Colorado and am willing to travel. Please, can anyone hear my message? I will not be a burden to anyone, and can help out any just cause that may be
taking place somewhere else. Any marmot meat I have can be yours if you ask. It's a little gamy, but the aftertaste isn't too bad. Out."
