ATS transponder: "Druid42 here. We are 59 days into the collapse of the economy. Travel from KYBC was horrible, trees cut-down over the mountain
passages, luckily I had three chain saws stored. Either the zombies or TPTB had cut down the trees, trying to force backtracks, and I'm leaning
towards the latter. I have been thinking that if you cut off the major routes, the sheeple will go right back into your web. Not me, I cut the trees
off the road, and pushed them out of the way with my four by, log chain to drag them when needed, so I have been massively delayed.
Here's my rig, pre-bug out, and I've had to drop trailer many times to get through the mountains.
With 4 55 gallon drums
of gas, I have a range of 1200 miles.
I'm in the middle of Arkansas now, SW of Little Rock, and here......
I've posted a guesstimate of current member locations:
ATS transponder: "Out."
For the record:
It's June 12th, 2012, 59 days after the world economy collapsed. It's apparent by now the government is no longer functional, and no viable help is
expected from that avenue.
Most of the East Coast is a disaster. We have had contact in the NYVT area, a viable camp, and they formed a tribal community after 46 days. Contact
is sparse now. ATS Transponder, "mantarey, come in, over."
subject x had an ATS flotilla going on in the keys, and told us on the 28th of May that Miami was in flames. That was 45 days in.
TXTriker has been with us all along, and I am trying to raise her to get a location on her relatives here. I may have found them, but I need TXT to
confirm the last name of "riddle". I am parked for now, a range of 1200 miles without re-fueling, and since it's June 12th, I am helping them
plant. They have little to no idea of what has happened. Going about everything day to day. They are used to the barter system here.
I am in Hope, Arkansas, pop. about 10378. Plus me and two kids. We may root here for the summer. We're in the middle of nowhere. The perfect place
to hide, being self sufficient. I got the others to agree to dig up an extra field for potatoes. They did. I'm thinking these guys are beginning
to understand. There hasn't been a fresh milk delivery in over three weeks.
They have been milking the cows, but in our own vats. I have installed timers on the gennies to cycle the cooling fridge, but it's only a matter
before we run out of gasoline. 3 months at my calculations. We need to wean the cows from the machines before then, and get them used to hand
In case I don't survive, because I've met a lady here, and a bit of romance has sprung up, I just want to add a few more members to the log:
expat888 made contact after 52 days, from SE Asia. Contact was made June 5th, 2012. He gave us the update of Korea being wasted. China, 1/4th gone.
No commerce, no flights, yes, it boiled down to this.
Wookiep was found in CO, 53 days in. SEROCK has a kiln and forge operational by this time. A waterwheel is ready, but waiting for installation.
oldshooter1979 reports back in at 57 days in. He's the link to KYBC. They have 37 members in their group, their crops are in, and I am thinking
Trexter Ziam delivered 5 gallons of anti-viral serum for TXTriker, from CETX, but Trex is mysterious. 58 days in.
PhysicsAdept notified us via ATS Transponder after 58 days, and is in the Colorado area, and in the hands on the western folk, who are after to help
expat888 is planning an air drop of supplies and weapons at SEROCK. They've worked the coordinates since, and have the drop taken care of. 58 days
