I spent the first few days in my house, fortifying it to the best of my ability. My Dad never made it back, neither did my mom. My sister lives in Montana, and I havent heard from her since Thanksgiving when she said she was gonna try to head East to our Uncles. He lives in Boston, so Im assuming that she didnt make it.

When the Government ordered the evactuation of refugees from Tacoma, Seattle and Olympia, alot of them came here. There wasnt enough space, food or gas. This put strain on everyone, the first infection was noticed on November 11th, thats when all out war broke out in my town. I managed to get home and hold off looters. My Dad was at his work and I have no idea where my mom was, still dont. The first week of December brought the Army and CDC to take things in hand, it didnt work.
Ive only encountered the slow ones too But keep moving anyway, you dont want to get caught unaware. Thats never fun. I first witnessed an attack on November 25th. During the height of the riots, I thought it was just part of it.
5 minutes by car or on foot? There comes a time for throwing caution to the wind and kicking in. Because if you dont, you will die. Just remember, aim for the head, watch their hands, they can be just as deadly as the mouth and keep moving until you find a place thats easily defended.
All you need is a heavy coat. Leather is ideal, but heavy cotton duck or jean material works. Im wearing a Carhartt jacket and its served me well. Youll also need something to cover your eyes and mouth, a bandana works, but its not ideal. Sunglasses would work as well. Work with what you go, thats the best thing you can do until you get ahold of better gear.
Im sorry you are alone. I have my dog, so I have some company. Food is important, You should consider venturing out, day would be better and checking the houses around you. Thats what Im doing. What are you using as protective gear?
Seattles been under Quaratine since November 8th. King County as a whole is consistered a Dead Zone. Im sure shes fine, Fort Lewis is nearby and I hear that they were taking in alot of refugees and were very well defended.
Oh, I thought you were in DC, sorry. I see you made friends with my good friend and loyal Komrad Venessa. If you ever need help let her know, shes one of the best we have on the East Coast. Now that I know you live in a smaller town, may I recommend that you go NO WHERE NEAR the city. Thats where I am and its more trouble then its worth.
That could be a good thing. You can use the darkness to conceal your movements. You will be able to smell and hear them before you see them, so the darkness may be a good thing. Use your flashlight sparingly, Zombies arent the only danger, paniced people can be just as dangerous.
I prefer an axe to a bat, but the crowbar is useful. Weapon and it can open up doors. Good choice. Im set with ammo and firearms, I just got ahold of a shotgun. It was my friend Bens, but hes not gonna be using it.
