The Pequaming survivors have seized upon the idea of helping us find Shawn and the other survivors from the Wisconsin Dells... #zompocalypse

They see it as their first act in support of our alliance. Can't blame their enthusiasm. It must be a relief, finally finding friends.

We're still looking over maps and thinking through thought experiments about where Shawn and his people might have gone to ground. #zombies

The key is their amphibious vehicles. Those zompocalypse-modded tourist ducks from the Dells give them a lot of mobility, but they need fuel

06:54 AM #
Shawn told me that most of the ducks are modded, like his, with steam or wood gas for normal travel, but they retain their diesel engines.

They use their diesel motors when speed or power are important. My guess is they used up much fuel avoiding the "highwaymen" at the locks.

So I think they'd want to replenish their supply of diesel as soon as possible. They'd have made that a priority before winter set in.

Fuel is getting harder to find. Supplies have been dwindling ever since the zombies rose & civilization fell. #zombie #zombies #zompocalypse

07:06 AM #
The Pequaming survivors say they've been having their own problems with diesel supplies, and have been considering unusual sources...

07:09 AM #
We agree that Shawn and his people might have come up with the same ideas, only one of which is available to them if they're hiding inland:

They might be tapping into a pipeline--there are a lot to the west of here. In theory, we could snowmobile along the pipeline routes easily.
