We finished our plans at Kurt and May's place yesterday, staying overnight to be closer to the northern approach to the zombie pump today.

07:14 AM #
Ruth spent most of yesterday and this morning talking to May about her pregnancy. Ruth had 5 children & 13 grandchildren, pre-zompocalypse.

07:34 AM #
Today's plan is to have Ruth standing up through the sunroof of the Tucson as I drive. She'll do all the shooting. Kurt will ride shotgun.

07:37 AM #
I'm going to drive us in close from the North so Ruth can shoot all the solar patio lights that now face that way, then play pied piper...

07:40 AM #
We'll pull as many zombies as possible away to the north, then break contact before we get to the big zombie horde on Rib Mountain Drive.

.@jreyna77 The series of southward-facing lights drew zombies north, away from my side of the fence, after the fire drew them over it.

Ruth shot all the lights she could on the north side of the zombie pump, then switched to hitting zombies as we drove away. We're on 29 now.

09:57 AM #
We're going to try the same approach on the south side of the pump now. There are a few more lights to hit. All that remain, actually.

12:17 PM #
Ruth has put an end to the zombie pump. She shot out all the remaining lights. Afterwards, we led the zombie mob across the 29E bridge.

12:20 PM #
We'd stop now and then to let more zombies catch up while Ruth shot those closest to us. We relocated or downed over two hundred zombies.

12:23 PM #
Now it's time to take the long way around back home. Kurt and I will check out the zombie pump again tonight to make sure it has gone dark.

Ruth did a great job--there's not a single solar patio light left shining in the zombie pump. It's done, gone, & so are most of the zombies.
