(from the background, person 1)… work? (with the recorder, person 2) It looks like it’s working. The red light up on the top is lit up. (1) Well that’s a start. I’m guessing it’s probably recording. Can you get it to replay the audio? (2) Umm… Let me see… Yeah, this looks like it’s it. Here, it looks like I can plug it into your tablet. (1) Alright. Lemme pull it out. (2) Alright. (1) Okay, got it. Here, plug it in. (2) K. (1) Alright, here’s the sound file. Let me try pulling it up. (2) Man, can’t wait to see what’s on here. (1) Neither can I. Ready? (2) Yeah. Play it. (1) Alright. 3… 2… 1… *click* “Hey! Marcus here. The first break out was reported today on the news…”
Hey all! Jose here, as y’all know, for those actually following along, I haven’t posted in quite some time. Over two months actually. I’m truly sorry about it, but I have a lot going on with school and Marching band so I haven’t been able to write anything in quite sometime. Sorry about it again. Anyways, well, again, it’s been over two months. Should I continue, I’ll have a lot to catch up on. I’m sure it’ll be worth it, but it’s a lot of work to an already busy schedule. However, should I choose to end it, well, it’s almost been two years. I’ve done a lot with it. Be weird to know I don’t have to worry about anything but maybe going back and improving old posts. So, not wanting to make the decision on my own, I figured I’ll let y’all, the readers, decide on the fate of the logs. Do you want to end it? Or do you want me to try and continue on?
Hey! So here’s the few I’m working on right now. They aren’t complete and the last one is mid post, but y’all can still read it for now. I keep make everyone wait (like y’all actually wait for these) for there so here are a few so far. http://wp.me/p2m8vy-6O
Hey! So, again, I haven’t been recording much. And I probably won’t until I actually manage to reach Texas. You run into more infected when you’re on the move, see more, but it’s the same thing. A few infected here, hide, escape, continue, repeat. Hate to bore y’all with the same story day after day. Anyhow, John and I are still traveling, surviving, avoiding death, etc… Same old. Anyhow, I’m not sure how much longer we have to go. I checked a map a few days back and we have probably a few more weeks worth of traveling before getting to Texas, then after that, we have to find out where in Texas we want to go. That’ll take a while. As soon as we find somewhere in Texas though, we’re going to get some supplies, and spend the next week just resting. After that, we’ll go around some more, look for survivors, supplies, the usual. Anyways, I’ll write back next week, try and make this a weekly thing until we settle down. So, ’till next week, later.
Hello? Hello??? Hey! I think I found a pair that work! … Yeah. The light’s on. Here. Catch! … Hello? ha! Finally! It’s about time. It’s been a while hasn’t it guys or gals or, whoever’s listening to this. Sorry. Had no batteries and the recorder here dies on me without warning. Anyways, now that I’m back on, lemme brief you on what happened and what the situation is at the moment. I’m about h alf way to Texas, well, I think. I still need to find a good map. Can you believe it? 71 days and I still haven’t found a map. Anyways, I’ve been traveling down the highway, well, highways that’re supposed to take me to Texas. Not sure what state I’m in though. I kept forgetting to check the signs… Umm… I had to change directions a few times, well, not really the direction, just, find a different route due to infected blocking the path or large amounts or cars. Why avoid the cars? Oh, because I didn’t want to have to deal with any of the infected that might be trapped in their cars. Let’s see… Oh! Supplies! I have a few water bottles, 7 or so last I counted, a few food bars, canned foods, and 2 firearms with their ammo. Also met up with this guy over here, John I think his name was. Been a lot of help and good at getting supplies. Was kind of hesitant at first, having had been alone the whole time, but I managed to get him to come with me. Feel kinda bad for him. Must’ve been lonely. I’m sure loneliness was the least of his worries though. He doesn’t seem to regret it either (yells behind him), You don’t regret this right? (turns back to recorder) Haha, yeah, he’s fine. Be easier to sleep now, taking shifts, knowing that someone’s keeping us protected. What else. I found this hiking bag here too! Carries a great deal more than my other bag, but, I’m probably never going to fill it up. To much weight to be carrying around. Anyways, back to John. He carries around a crossbow, a bow, and of course, some arrows. It’s quieter, and the arrows can be reusable, and they’d be my weapons of choice too, but, well, I have no idea how to use them. He said he’d teach me, so, I’ll wait ’till then. Should help a lot. What else should y’all know. We met some new people, other survivors. Most were friendly. Took us in, we talked a bit, traded supplies, then we left. A few others were not so friendly though. They either threatened us, tried to kill us, or just went mad. Thankfully we didn’t run into to many of those. Anyways, I think that’s all for today. We’re about to go look for a place to sleep, so, I’ll record again tomorrow hopefully! Later!
OK, well, I found a map. By the looks of it, I’m in… Manassas? Never heard of it, but, well, It’s on the map. Anyways, With the map, looks like I should head over to Highway 81? Should take me down to Virginia. Well, that’s all it shows on the map, cut’s off there not to long after it reaches Virginia. I’m going to have to find a larger map, hopefully one with the highways. I’ll use that, assuming I find one, to lead me to where I’m going. Of course though, with technology, more people use GPSs so finding a map is going to be hard. Plus, if I find a map, I’m going to have to make sure it’s up to date. Don’t wanna start following an outdated map. So, might as well start looking for that. So, once again, later.
Hey! So, uh, yeah, flipped a coin. Looks like I’m off to Texas. Again, definitely wasn’t the best way to decide, but, I couldn’t really pick. But, hey, I’m not going to have to deal with the cold. Hm, makes another reason to not go up north. The farther up, the more clothing I’d need, the more clothing I have on, the easier I am to get a hold of. Plus, running would be hell because I’d be under the heat of the clothes, causing me to sweat more. Anyways, I’m going to have to find myself a map. I have no idea where I am right now, still somewhere around Maryland or Virginia is all I know. So, then, I’ll go ahead and scavenge then. Later.
