We've been working to secure this block of Wausau from zombies for 5 days. It finally feels like we may get it done. #zombie #apocalypse
07:55 AM #
All the zombies are cleared out. All the fences in the yards have been connected. All the windows and doors of the houses are sealed shut...
07:58 AM #
The final task is to barricade both ends of the street between this block and the one we cleared long ago for Ruth. #zombie #zompocalypse

A cluster of wrecked cars on one end will make up the bulk of the barricade there. Wausau is full of abandoned vehicles for the other side.

The challenge, of course, is moving all these vehicles around without attracting the attention of too many zombies. Patience is the key.

I just made a lot of noise winching a Hostess panel truck into place. So far, it doesn't look like any zombies were close enough to hear.

This part of Wausau never had swarms of zombies in it. The zombie plague hit during the work day. Most died far from home, or evacuated.

Ruth stayed behind, refusing to leave the home she and her husband had shared. He died long before this whole zombie thing. #zompocalypse

She learned to keep a low profile during the early days of the zombie outbreak. She's tough, smart, and fiercely independent. I like her.

Just one zombie showed up to investigate the noise. I put an arrow in its head at 40 yards. Ruth was ready with her .22 in case I missed.

I rarely miss a target that size at that range. Ruth never does. #zombie #zombies #Wausau #apocalypse #zompocalypse
