Since first light, I've been watching the home I think I saw Jason in last night. It paid off: he just slipped out and took off at a jog.

05:03 AM #
I'm not going to attempt to follow him to his real home, but at least now I know where he stays when he's hanging around here. #zompocalypse

I looked through the house Jason was using. I'd been in it before so I looked for any alterations Jason made. None, except in the attic.

06:13 AM #
Jason made a nest of blankets and curtains up in the attic. If I hadn't been thorough, I wouldn't have known to look there. #zompocalypse

06:16 AM #
On several emergency occasions, I'd hidden out from zombies in the attic of an abandoned home myself. It appears Jason uses them regularly.

I am planting some late season frost-resistant kale in my gardens' empty patches so that I'll have plenty of greens well into fall. #zombies

Some of the Babcock survivors went back to their original enclave for some things to bring back to their new home in the Farm Colonies...

10:17 AM #
...They are back now and had an interesting report, which was just relayed to me over the secure sheriff's department radios that we use:

10:20 AM #
...The Babcock people approached their old base carefully--and it was good that they did--and spied a couple Reaper scouts checking it out.

10:23 AM #
The Reaper scouts were carefully going through the burned vehicles their earlier attack column left behind, then poked around the buildings.

10:26 AM #
...The Babcock people heard the scouts argue about the dangers of heading further north. The one who advised against it won, and they left.

10:29 AM #
...So it sounds like, for now at least, the danger of an immediate visit by more Reapers looking for the first group is unlikely. Whew.

Did some practice with my bow. My chest tolerated a few draws. I've got to keep my skills up because the zombies await.
