After a day of rest, those of us who spent a day re-killing zombies in the Granite Peak ski area parking lot are returning to the scene.

06:13 AM #
We have to retrieve our trucks, pull arrows that can be re-used from zombie skulls, and burn the bodies. It'll probably take all day.

May noticed something strange about many of the zombie bodies lying around the parking lot: Somebody chopped fingers off of some of them.

07:35 AM #
She showed me how it was usually the left hand, and how the fingers were left scattered nearby. An axe left chop marks in the asphalt.

08:03 AM #
I think May has it figured out: Somebody came through here and took all the rings from zombies' bodies. Necklaces and bracelets, too.

@mattress Not to most survivors. You can't eat gold or defend yourself with it. It's not worth the effort. But a few have hoarded the stuff.

08:12 AM #
@mattress You got it.

08:20 AM #
Some other scroungers now say they'd seen downed zombies out west on 29 that were missing fingers, but they chalked it up to wear and tear.

It's getting very hot, very humid. These zombies are very, very ripe.

09:49 AM #
@luckysenior You never get used to it. Not entirely. Sometimes the breeze will change and you'll want to vomit.

09:51 AM #
We've got a good fire going in the middle of the parking lot, consuming the zombie bodies with a hot, red flame and billowing, black smoke.

10:15 AM #
Turns out some of the zombies in the pile under the eaves of the main ski lodge are still dangerous--They got buried by other zombie bodies.

10:18 AM #
We're going to have to take our time dragging zombie bodies from the lodge to the fire, making sure we don't free a "live" one.

11:21 AM #
I've checked with everyone here as we clean up from the big zombie fight. Nobody admits harvesting jewelry from the bodies. But someone did.

01:08 PM #
Most of the zombie bodies are now on the fire. A few "fresh" ones are wandering in, attracted by the pillar of black smoke.

01:14 PM #
@Azulien You aren't kidding. Some of that happened on Z-day. Actually, the smoke column catches their attention. They lose interest up close

02:50 PM #
Sometimes a zombie body softly "explodes" in a big fire like this. I assume it's abdominal gasses from undigested food. #zompocalypse

05:28 PM #
@Azulien Not so far, but it might be worth a try.

06:03 PM #
The fire is nearly out, but man, does it still stink here. Time to head out, get rid of the clothes we wore today, and sleep. #zompocalypse
