The envoy from the survivor colony on Washington Island has arrived. I'm off to the gate fort on 29E to confirm her identity. #zompocalypse

08:59 AM #
I recognized the envoy from Washington Island as well as two of her four traveling companions. They made it here without incident. #zombies

Though I didn't spend much time with their people during my tour of Wisconsin one year after Z-day, I guess my visit made an impression...

09:05 AM #
...They've been sending out explorers of their own, mostly by boat, to learn what they can of the world. #zombie #apocalypse #zompocalypse

I'm eager to hear all they've learned. For now, however, my priority is getting them to a meeting with Pete and the other alliance leaders.

11:10 AM #
I'm up on Rib, sitting in on a meeting with all the leaders of the various groups in our post-zompocalypse alliance. Some attend via radio.

11:13 AM #
As usual, the Reaper/Cannibal Gangs war (and the inevitable clash we'll face when the Reapers win) is the main topic of conversation.

11:16 AM #
But there's something new in the mix: The Washington Island group wants assurances from us that we will help defend them from other threats.

11:19 AM #
Namely--and I can't believe I'm hearing this--pirates. It seems the Washington Island group's biggest worry is predatory survivors in boats.

11:22 AM #
While their island is too well-populated for the pirates to mess with, the threat keeps their fishing fleet from venturing into open water.

02:52 PM #
Today's meetings went well. We have a new ally. We may have a new enemy, too, though they're not an imminent threat. #zompocalypse

03:55 PM #
I'm at the Farm Colonies. I brought the Washington Island envoy and her escorts here for a tour and some hospitality. #zombies #zompocalypse

06:58 PM #
Spending the night at The Farm Colonies. Everybody listens to Pete's nightly broadcasts. Some listen to Anon's ranting responses. #zombies

07:01 PM #
I still haven't had the chance to talk to the Washington Island people at length. They're too popular. Anyway, Sue & I have other plans.
