After another day with no sign of the nuclear techs and no reply from Homeland Security, Captain Dent is still stubbornly on station...

He says that since he's already waited 3 years to get Point Beach up and running again, what are a few days? #zombie #zombies #zompocalypse

I'm meeting envoys from a survivor group from the U.P. later this morning. First, another chapter in the Mackinac Island story...
08:41 AM #
When I left off yesterday, I was about to tell you what happened with those two freighters. They were anchored off the north shore.
08:44 AM #
The Mackinac Island survivors decided to salvage the bunker fuel the freighters had in their tanks to supply their growing fishing fleet.
08:47 AM #
They also moved tons of coal to the island, planning ahead for future winters. It was hard work, taking it out bucket by bucket by hand.
08:50 AM #
Eventually, daily runs to the ships ceased. The islanders had many other pressing matters to deal with, like finding food, building defenses
08:53 AM #
So, when visitors to their island asked if they could share in the cargo still left aboard, the Mackinac Island survivors agreed.
08:56 AM #
They checked in a couple times as their visitors, who said they were from the U.P., started moving a few boatloads of coal per day...
08:59 AM #
Then, one day, the visitors--and the coal freighter--were gone. A fishing boat saw it heading east, away from the U.P. #zompocalypse
09:02 AM #
The Mackinac Islanders decided not to make an issue of the theft. If they had, they might have avoided the next challenge they faced.
04:30 PM #
The envoys I met with today are from a small survivor enclave hiding out in St. Ignace. Just 21 people, all told, though there were more.
04:33 PM #
It's amazing...they had avoided contact with other survivors in the area but they heard our HAM radio broadcasts and decided to reach out.

It is really encouraging to me that Pete's words are bringing hope to people. We won't let the zombies--or predatory survivors--beat us.
