ATS Transponder: SE Rockies coming in. Strange things tonight. In light of news of others... and zombies... I decided to gather everyone left for a
town meeting. There are 72 of us left. ( 100 was an over estimate '
' . ) 12 are children (under 15) and 9 are very elderly, leaving a good
chunk of capable able-bodied humans.
During the meeting we started to take log of our supplies, but were interrupted. A caravan of what could only be government vehicles sped through
town. They were large all-black trucks, going well over the speed limit with no apparent intentions of slowing down for anyone.
Everyone left in town was in the Masonic Lodge (I know, of all places!) about a block off the highway. Myself and my husband ran out to get a closer
look. The rest of the town does look completely abandoned (but it did on most days before this happened'
') and being evening with no street
lights... it's pretty dark. We hid behind a bush near the Federal bank building and counted more than 20 trucks. Man! They were bookin' it!
The trucks were headed west/north deeper into the mountains. My best guess is that they are headed towards Creede. Months ago there were many hugely
large 'tubes' being escorted via state patrol that direction.
Glad none of them stopped to stir anything up here. '
In light of this, we've decided to let everyone go home for the night and gather provisions. We will be staying a couple of large buildings, closer
Will spend tonight and tomorrow counting supplies.
Also on the agenda: organize the townspeople into... well, a functioning safe-haven for our 'new beginning'.'
Several members that chose to stay know of caves and other safe places deeper in the National Forrest where they have said they have things stored.
No numbers on those yet.
To THERIAN: Your small group is welcome here. Depending on your food supply you may want to head this way. As of now, we are doing well on this.
And the largest city we are near is Colorado Springs ( I think). We are about 3 1/2 hours SE. Or Taos, NM, 2 1/2 hours NW (much more north than west).
Those are the biggest cities. Hope that helps.
To DRUID42: As far as I know, I'm the only ATS member here, the rest are all civilians. There are LOTS of others that bugged out early though. I can
only assume they are somewhere close, in a cave, probably with some fabulous generator hooked up powering their ingeniously hidden 5th-wheel. '
No telling when/if those will come down to say hello.
Must be off. Wanna get to sleep. The days are ruled by the sun and as the harshness of winter approaches we have less and need more. Over.
