Well, here's something I didn't think would happen.
Without the banalities of modern life to fill in the gaps, we actually have a lot of time to fill. So far we have done so with construction, keeping guard, etc. But now that there are more people here, it's amazing how much extra time comes free.
It's not as though we don't have a lot planned. My brother is going to help us build a lot of stuff, or at least get us on the right track. My current idea is to annex the houses on either side of us, and remove the fences in between, fence in the whole thing, and make one huge back yard that we can farm and build in. But all of that is going to have to wait for several things, not the least of that being enough materials and enough people.
So here I am, no zombies around to speak of, off of guard duty, but since we have decided to travel in pairs at all times, it's just Pat and I at the house right now, and he's on guard.
When other people get bored, they play video games or watch TV, but our options in that area are fairly limited right now...so i will write. I know that once we get things really going here, it will be hard to find the time to update. But until then, I guess, you folks out there will keep getting running updates on what we're doing, and how. If any of this helps you a at all, even if just to remind you that in a world gone completely mad, you are not alone, then the my time in writing it has been well worth it.
