What we do for family, from the journal of Brian S

Posted: May 4, 2014 by FEMA help in FEMA

I had sworn to myself I was done with these solo trips after my trip to Disney. Not only were they unnecessary since Paladin had dropped off the face of the earth, but it had become even more dangerous after all these subspecies of zeds started showing up.

Call me sentimental, but I miss the good old days where all you had to do was shoot the SOB in the head and it dropped. Now you got to figure out what kind of monstrosity your looking at, remember what it’s weakness is, and more importantly what doesn’t work. Plus, the last thing you want to do is be out by yourself when a fresh wave of zeds gets produced by the CVC’s latest screw up.

But here I am, once again spending a night locked in a abandoned car trunk so I can catch a few z’s without worrying about getting eaten by a wandering zed.

Note: While this is a good trick for spending the night fairly safe, I learned the hard way to make sure the emergency trunk release works before climbing in. Otherwise, the noise you make getting the damn trunk open will just about guarantee a crap load of nearby zeds will come shambling your way, but I digress.

So, if being out here alone is such a stupid, hare brained, sure to get you killed idea, what the hell am I doing out here? In a word, family.
