One last journey south on the river today: We're taking Shawn's duck down to Stevens Point to explore the flooded west side. #zompocalypse

I'll be out of range of The Anomaly and the "weakness between worlds" it creates, so I'll be out of touch until we return. #zompocalypse

Back safely. It's going to take awhile to get the smell of stagnant water and decay out of my nose. What a mess things are down there.

03:33 PM #
The floods that started the first spring after the zombies rose really did a number on large chunks of Stevens Point. #zombies #zompocalypse

03:36 PM #
Shawn piloted his duck thru backwaters that used to be residential neighborhoods, using his fish-finder sonar to avoid underwater obstacles.

03:39 PM #
There were several "islands" of less-ravaged neighborhoods. We didn't find any survivors, but we did find a home with ham radio antennas.

03:42 PM #
There were two radios inside the abandoned home: one short-range, one long. Shawn's going to install them on his duck. This is a big deal.

03:45 PM #
It's important because, unlike our radios, Shawn's will be mobile. Broadcasting won't be as likely to lead raiders to his location.

03:48 PM #
Soon, Shawn will be able to call out to other survivors of the zombie plague around the world! Two-way communication at last! #zompocalypse

03:51 PM #
Our time on the duck, isolated from the weakness between worlds that allows you to see my tweets, had us talking about other possibilities.

One of those ideas is so radical that I'm not quite ready to talk about it yet. Frankly, I'm a little afraid of implementing it.
