Lucas just arrived from the Farm Colonies. He brought a zombie-trained dog with him, a gift for Shawn before they depart. #zompocalypse

Gertie is overdue. She's the volunteer from Fort NTC who's going on the expedition on the duck with Shawn, Lucas, and the dog. #zombies
08:15 AM #
Jason (who I'm still convinced is up to something and never left last night) is playing with the dog Lucas brought. He wants to name him.

Shawn's glad to have a dog along . And since he never even named his duck, he's fine with Jason naming the dog. #zombie #zombies

The mutt Lucas brought was a pup reclaimed from a feral pack. It's got long reddish brown hair, so I assume it has some Irish Setter in it.

Gertie is here. She put a battery and some fuel in a disposable car to get here and had bad luck with a rotted belt. She had to swap cars.

Gertie and Lucas have their gear aboard Shawn's duck. They're ready to depart...just waiting on Jason to name the dog. The kid's thinking.
09:15 AM #
Jason gave Shawn a twofer: The dog's name is Chewie (inspired by his penchant for chewing on sticks). He also gave Shawn's duck a name:...
09:17 AM #
The duck is now known as, "The Millennium Mallard." Turns out Jason's dad turned the kid on to Star Wars before he died. #zompocalypse
09:20 AM #
Jason says he was inspired to name the duck when he thought of Chewie's name, that it fits because it gets people in it out of bad spots...
09:23 AM #
Jason, proud of his Star Wars trivia knowledge, has even started calling Shawn "Lando Calrissian." I guess there is a vague resemblance.

Shawn & the others checked in using one of the ham radios we installed on the duck--er, the Millennium Mallard. They're safe, near Merrill.

I heard three short acknowledging clicks on the prescribed frequency before I added my own. That's all that's safe for us to broadcast.
