ATS transponder: "PhysicsAdept I hear you loud and clear. When I say loud and clear I mean REALLY loud and clear! Sand Dunes National Park you say? Well, you could prolly start walking northwest and be here by sunrise! haha. If you are fortified to make it one more night, I can see about coming your way by sunrise. If you are in trouble and need immediate assistance, I could leave now, and be there in oh...an hour, maybe 2? Let me know, over."

ATS transponder: "Who is this? This almost sounds like someone I know... Would this be Wookiep by any chance? Ah well we can do pleasantries later. I am not in immediate need of assistance. I just fought off a walker, but it's the only one I have seen in days. I am not too worried and have enough marmot meat to last me... say three more days, two to be safe. I say tomorrow I will begin heading to a northwest location. As you may have heard, my only map is practically illegible. I will head northwest, but I would not know to where. Over."

ATS transponder: "PhysicsAdept, Oh yes, how rude of me! I didn't introduce myself. It's been a loooong day, I had for some reason assumed you heard the chatter on the transponder today. Anyway, yes WookieP here. Me and a party of 4 are currently spending the night in a little place called "Villa Grove". It's north of "Center" approx 30 miles. If you don't wish to walk the whole way then the best plan of action would be to walk northwest until you find a large landmark I could easily recognize. Then stay put and set up camp. I could set out tomorrow morning. The choice is yours, over."

ATS transponder: "Ah, WookieP! So glad to hear of your wellness. I'm assuming your boy is with you, correct? It would be a shame if anything happened to him so early. I recall that he was one of your closer family members and you need him for morale, if nothing else. As for the others, I am sure they are great people. I will begin walking tomorrow between sun-up and high noon. I hope I the others will see me as something other than a burden. How funny is it that us Colorado Springers would meet up, but not in Colorado Springs? Do you have any information on what happened back there? The Springs was in rough shape when I left, I can't imagine it got much better. Over."

ATS transponder: "Roger that PhysicsAdept. Rusty is doing just fine although his arm got mildly lacerated in a recent encounter with some walkers. I've got my brother Scooter and his girl Allison with us as well. We rendezvoused with a nice girl named Rose who is going to help us get to an ATS retreat somewhere further down south. You're welcome to tag along if you wish. As far as the condition of Colorado Springs goes, I'll tell you about it when we meet up. Please be sure to communicate over the transponder when you have reached your next location. I do not want to head your way until you are staying put and not on the move. I don't want to miss you while crossing paths, over."

ATS transponder: "Sounds good WookieP, I will catch some shut-eye now so I can be alert on the way to finding you and the others. Fare well and keep sharp. Goodnight over."

I turned the volume on the transponder down just a tad--with just enough decibels to wake me up if someone yelled into it, but not enough to disturb my sleep with ambient chit-chat. I couldn't help but feel a small glimmer of hope in the back of my mind. Yeah, everything turned to crap pretty fast, but a civilization of six proves to be stronger than an individual--in most cases. I began to drift on the cold bed of sandy rock I had laid down for myself, yet my sleeping bag kept me warmer than usual that night...

He drove into Villa Grove not to worried, Not wishing to wake anyone he kicked Deeks out of the car so he could keep watch. Resting his eyes and regaining a little strength while he could. He had heard the chatter earlier but hearing Dr Rob then Wookiep assisting with Adept he decided to focus on the road.

He had lost more blood then he thought and the dang butterfly tape wasn't holding all that well. He had stopped at least 4 times to change the wrappings. That's what you get when trying to tape up your own wounds one handed. He could have waken Rose but decided to leave her be. In the morning the group could get to introductions and such. Sleep would come pretty easy to him tonight. With Deeks outside he knew if trouble came he would have at least a minutes warning...

checking the last of the supplies loaded on the aircraft .. walk down the tailramp of the c-130 thinking of how many times over the years had sent medical supplies and assisted in places around the world.. Am getting too damn old for this *lighting up a cigarrette* ...

Looking up at the night sky cant help wondering if anything will ever change .. Karma neh..

May as well get some tea and rest while wait to see if anyone at the colorado ats base responds ..

Zhang tell your men to rest awhile .. Not much we can do now other than wait for a response..

ATS transponder: ""Expat888, do you read? This is PhysicsAdept. I understand you have transport abilities as well as weapons? I myself have just left to rendezvous with others in Colorado. Would it be a viable request to ask for you to meet up with us here? I'm not sure what the others would want in terms of going to Asia... How are things in Asia by the way? I am assuming the outbreak has reached overseas? At this point, I'm not even entirely sure where this zombie-plague came from... Last I heard it started in the U.K. but I can't trust the MSM here. Update me on your situation when possible. Over."

As I woke I noticed that Therian had arrived. Overjoyed, I walked over to the vehicle planning to introduce myself and shake his had. It looked as if he hadn't slept in days, so I decided to just let him sleep. Seeing a guy on guard duty, I could only assume it was Deeks. I quietly walked up to the vehicle. "Psst hey there, Deeks I assume? WookieP here, glad to see you guys arrived safely! I'll take watch, go inside and get some rest". As Deeks went to get some shut eye, I began to wonder if PhysicsAdept had made any progress.

ATS transponder: "Come in PyhsicsAdept. What is your current status? We have now finally met up with our whole party (7 here, now) and will be heading to our destination, somewhere near Alamosa I believe. We will likely head out soon and rendezvous with you on the way. Once we leave, I cannot stress enough that you should stay put, over."

ATS Transponder: SE ROCKIES here. It's Eliza. I'm back and feeling better. I'll update on my conditions later...

EXPAT888 : I read ya loud and clear. We are stationed in South Fork, CO. We also have people stationed in Del Norte (14 miles to the east). In between the two cities is a small local crop dusting airport. It should have a runway long enough for you to land. I'm also assuming there would be fuel there if you are intending on heading back to Asia afterward. I'm working on getting coordinates. The skies have been quiet, so we'll assume it's you coming. You are also welcome to stay here. My motto: Don't turn anyone away unless they're shootin'. Over.

ATS TRANSPONDER: SE ROCKIES here. Base camp located in South Fork, CO with another in Del Norte. You are about two hours via car/highway from us. Get to Hwy 160 and start heading west. Your best best may be to meet up with Therian, Wookiep and crew. I heard your maps could be better. No worries-there's only a few main roads around here. Only worry: You are out in the wide open. The Valley doesn't have much in the way of protecting. If you are on foot, try and get in contact with the others. See if they can come to you. Your skills will be welcome and a hot meal when you arrive. Good luck! Over.

ATS Transponder: SE Rockies, Eliza here. No worries, Wookiep, you seemed to have misheard a transmission. I've been safe here at base camp with a broken rib and some bruises. The 20+ that came through a couple of days ago and kidnapped then roughed me up are heading to Colorado Springs. I warned them (even after they beat me up pretty good).


Everything's been a bit quieter the last two days. We are down two SUVs full of supplies, but my guys tell me they stacked empty boxes on the bottom, so not as many supplies were taken.

Warning to anyone passing through Alamosa (on Hwy 160), that group was planning on heading that way first and then to Colorado Springs. They should already be out of the area, but it's hard to say.

I'm not able to get around very quickly, but Dr. Rob says I'll be back to normal in a couple of weeks and doing much better in a few days. Going to get some cabins ready for our new arrivals. We will set you up in South Fork at first. There are plenty of furnished cabins all over the place. OVER.

Laying down exhausted I figure out which cabins will be best suited for our new members. The last few days have been hard for everyone, but we keep on keepin' on. I smile. It's what makes us human. I reach for the local walkie-talkie and buzz in.

"Sara. Come in. This is Eliza. Over."

"Sara here. Go ahead. Over."

"Will you get two cabins ready near the post office? We have a small group and one other coming in sometime tonight or tomorrow. Make sure one has at least four beds and linens. I can't remember the exact number coming. Over."

"Copy that. Over and Out."

Setting the walkie down I pull on a jacket and head to the hotel. I'm a bit hungry and need to check on food supplies after having to donate some to the looters. The sun is shining. Not a cloud in the sky. Today's just like any other day to dear old Earth.

ATS transponder: "Hey Eliza, Wookiep here. Thanks for the update. I'm glad to hear it wasn't you heading in to the Springs. Those folks are going to have one hell of a surprise when they get there. I am packing the vehicles up now preparing to head out. I figured I would let the others sleep a little while longer. I will probably take a seperate vehicle to retrieve PhysicsAdept. Scooter, Rusty, and Allison can follow Rose Therian (and Deeks, the DOG!) back to South Fork. Once I retrieve PhysicsAdept, we should be there in a matter of hours as long as all goes smoothly, over."

He woke up more tired then he was before. Without much celebration he got out of the car went around to the back looked around and promptly wet tested the nearest tire.. Looking over at Deeks who was glancing between me and the other man. He nodded once " Good morning, You must be Wookiep"

Moving around the car he took a quick measure of the man then petted Deeks ( The Black Lab ).
" EH you wouldn't know your way around a needle would you?" Then he noticed Rose in the back ground and Offered a Lopsided smile. " Good Job Girl, We will make a hunter out of you yet,,"

Taking off his leather jacket then his shirt he walked over to the Van and unloaded his Medical B.O.B. It didn't take him long to drink a half a pint of whiskey as he laid out the Needle and clamps. Along with some guaze he sat back and waited for the first volenteer his gash had reopened in the night. And he was pretty sure it wasn't getting better. He then poured the other half of the whiskey over the needle and the Gash. Taking a deep breath he nodded his head for them to go ahead and get started. Deeks just watched in amusement..

Much to my amusement and surprise...I had realized that I may have eaten too many wild mushrooms we picked up during our 2 days hiding from the walkers. Was I awake or dreaming? It was hard to tell at this point. Deeks is a DOG! Woops! *snicker* Well, this looks like I'm crazy! I tried to look as if I had already knew Deeks was a dog and not some guy guarding a vehicle.. "C'mere boy! Good dog!" "Oh hello Therian, good to finally meet you! If you need sutures, Allison knows her way around a needle. Come on inside.."

He nodded his head and took a playful kick at Deeks as he walked by.
" Thanks Got into a fight with a fence. Tell you what dang things are tougher then they look"
He nodded his head once more before half walking half stumbling towards who he assumed was Alison.

Looking over at Rose he started " Hey Rose we are leaving the Van so go shift the gear to the Car."

He didn't speak anymore as he sat down and awaited the torture of being sewed up..It was bad enough that he didn't have any painkillers. The whiskey only served to give him a slightly amused expression, ever bluring eyes and a bit of a drool. Yep he was the model of perfection..

As Therian stumbled toward Allison her eyes got big for a moment and she proceeded to help him to a chair nearby. "Oh dear, that's quite a gash! You got this from a fence you say? We don't want this to get infected." She gestured toward Rusty " Rusty, grab that rag over there and get me my scrubbing brush from my bag." The tension could be felt in the room as Therian knew what was coming next. She looked down at the bottle of whiskey and said "You do know what I need that whiskey for, right?" He rolled his eyes, knowing full well that she needed to scrub and sanitize his wound before suturing..
