@tinkerhellsbell I don't think they truly digest anything they eat. I've seen stuff falling out of abdomen wounds that looks like raw meat.

Preparations are underway for the expedition into southcentral Wisconsin. It's an area we know little about, other than what scouts report.

07:31 AM #
The scouts say that the area has high zombie numbers and is thoroughly pillaged by other survivors, probably from early in the zompocalypse.

07:34 AM #
But we're going there with two goals: To harvest as many cranberry bogs as possible and to disrupt an Anomaly that has formed near Plover.

07:37 AM #
We're hoping that enough cranberries have regrown in the bogs to make the trip worthwhile. The fruit is high in vitamin C and preserves well

07:40 AM #
We're going to bring fuel, tools, batteries, and even spare tires to get needed cranberry harvesting equipment up and running. #zompocalypse

07:43 AM #
Disrupting the anomaly is a different matter. It will require disturbing a mucky, muddy, deep pile of still-animate buried zombie flesh.

07:46 AM #
Any pile of zombies in anaerobic conditions, like deep in the muck, forms what we call an Anomaly, a weakness between worlds. #zompocalypse

07:49 AM #
We don't know exactly how it works, but the zombie plague first appeared near a similar anomaly. We think new ones may spread the plague...

07:52 AM #
...they may spread the plague to other worlds, or bring more dangers here. Either way, we do all we can to disrupt Anomalies when they form.

@jer051 I'll have to try that!

08:02 AM #
@Azulien You have a good point.

10:17 AM #
The task force will be made up of survivors from the Farm Colonies, Fort NTC, the UWSP group, Camp Tesomas, and even Mosinee and Amherst.

10:18 AM #
Members from every area camp are going because we hope to get enough cranberries to help everyone eat better this winter. #zompocalypse

10:21 AM #
There's another reason every friendly survivor group is sending people on this mission: We need experience working and fighting together...

10:24 AM #
...There will be zombies to deal with every day, and there's a chance we'll run into Reapers or even raiders from the cannibal gangs.

@tinkerhellsbell Well, the subject HAS come up around the campfires at night. Can't blame anyone for being curious about the subject!

Pete's scouts didn't find any sign of organized survivors down in the area we're heading to, but there's a chance someone's living there.

02:15 PM #
If we do find anybody living down there, we will be sensitive to any of their territorial claims, as long as they respect ours. #zombies
