We made it safely to Washington Island just before dark yesterday. It took some searching to find a place on the island I can tweet from...

The cell antennae at the harbor didn't work so I tried higher ground. There's no tower here at this site, but there must be in your world.

We got a look at one of the pirate vessels that we heard now plague Lake Michigan. It watched us board the ferry in Manitowoc. #zompocalypse

The ferry is the largest ship in Washington Island's Fleet--nowhere near the size of the lost SS Badger--but easily outclassing the pirate.

While it was smaller, the pirate ship was faster, too. The ferry captain didn't try to outrun it. He kept his guns ready as it shadowed us.

The pirate ship paced us to starboard as we made our way north. It veered away once we got close to Washington Island. #zompocalypse

We're told they don't try anything close to the island. After bloodying their noses in a couple of skirmishes, they've stuck to easier prey.

The Washington Island survivors always have a lot of fishing boats out, & even though they're mostly powered by wind, they're armed & agile.

When I saw how many ships there are here now, I was surprised. They could really swarm any raider who got close. #zombies #zompocalypse

As for our diplomatic mission here, everything's going as expected. We're continuing the process begun this summer. #zombie #zombies

I can't tell you how nice it is to be in a place this big that has been cleared of zombies. The islanders work hard to keep it that way.
