Reconnecting with the Team

Posted: January 7, 2013 by kenkrebs in FEMA
Kadie and I made it to Houston, to one of the Fema supply caches we had established a while back to serve as a command post for when we made scavenging runs to the city.  By the time we reached the old capitol building which housed our destination, it was nearing night.
We entered the building and made our way to the stairs that led to the upper level of the building, I warned Kadie of the traps we had installed, and told her to follow my steps exactly.  She nodded and fell into line behind me.  Making our way up the stairs, I started looking for the trip wires we had set up.  They had already been tripped.  I motioned  for Kadie to stop.
“Whats wrong?”  She asked
“Our traps are tripped… there may be zombies up here, be ready.”
She nodded, and we resumed our path up the stairs.  As we reached the top, I heard a shotgun cocking.
“Who’s there?” came a voice from the shadows.  it was a voice I recognized, but hadn’t heard in a long time.
“Brian, is that you?”  I asked
“Night?  Holy crap man, we thought you were dead!”  Brian said, coming out of the shadows, sawed off shotgun slung over his shoulder.
“You should know by now that it takes a lot to kill me.  I brought a friend back with me from Hollinwood Cemetery across the pond. This is Kadie.”  I said, walking into the cache room.  “We’ve got some catching up to do my friend.  I’ve found a lead on Paladin.”
“So did I.”  Brian said, recounting his adventure at Disney.  at the end of his tale, I was shocked.
“This goes deeper than I thought… We need to get back to home base.  Where’s the radio?”
“Judson and Vyae are on their way here now, they should be here shortly.”

The final Discovery at Disney

*From the Journal of Brian S*

 

I waited a little longer to make sure no one was still around and made my way to one of the restaurants.

Once behind the counter I quickly found the entrance into the service tunnel.
The alarms and booby traps were extremely obvious, so whoever laid them out was more worried about zeds than people.
Using the info in the files, I located the storage areas and found them all cleaned out.
It took me a while to find what was supposed to be the base command center.   Whoever cleaned out the storage areas had obviously set off a fire bomb of some kind.
I spent the next two days sifting thru the ashes to find anything I could that would give some more info on this base or paladin in general.
Whoever had set the explosives had done a good job.  The only thing I was eventually able to piece together was a badly damaged US map with a few markings and symbols on it, and a couple of supply requisition forms for  something labeled Echo Base 2.
The markings on the requisition forms matched one of the symbols here at Disney on the map.  The requisition forms themselves were for a bunch of high end lab and containment equipment.  That would likely make EPCOT some kind of R&D site rather than the HQ.
If I assume the other symbol on the map here in Florida is for the magic kingdom, then somewhere in Las Vegas and California (Disney Land?) there are at least two more training sites.
I figured I’d gotten as much intel as I was going to so then next morning I used the tunnels to get outside the park.
The rest of the trip was fairly uneventful.  I made my way to the gulf cost and boosted a sail boat.  I followed the coast to until I found a safe spot on the Texas shore to land.
I spent the next few days traveling by foot, bicycle, and for a little while on a rather badly maintained Harley.
Tomorrow I should be able to get to one of the emergency radios we stashed out here when we were on scavenging runs.
Hopefully I’ll be able to arrange for a pick up and be home by the next day or so.
