As I tweeted yesterday before I crashed for the night, we didn't find Shawn's people along the pipeline when we went east. #zompocalypse

We think we followed the pipeline far enough east to know they didn't go that way. The rest of the peninsula is Michigan Militia territory.

We didn't see any other survivors until our unfortunate encounter with the Militia in the Hiawatha Nat'l Forest. There were plenty of undead

Maybe it was because the cleared land over the buried pipeline acts like a path of least resistance for the undead as they mill about.

We did run across several small abandoned camps and two very large ones where refugees came together in groups for mutual defense, years ago

Time and snow had erased all signs of conflict. Others who'd found the sites before took anything of value left behind. Sad scenes. #zombies
05:24 AM #
As I said yesterday, the pipeline is mostly underground. The only exception is at bridges and booster pump stations. We found two of those.
05:27 AM #
One is about 30 miles south of here. The booster pump stations have valves that could be used to tap the pipelines. We took a sample.

It could be crude oil, though I'm no expert. Pete saw my recent tweets & has sent up some people who've been working on our fuel situation.

He's smart, always thinking ahead. I hope he's finally recovered fully from the wounds he received during the Reaper assassination attempt.
05:36 AM #
I'm going to meet with the fuel experts now to see if they can tell me what we found. They've been examining it since our arrival yesterday.
