"You got it." Anthony said as he pulled off and hid the truck and killed the engine. Anthony got out of the truck and moved toward the bed where TJ was and extended his hand. "I'm Anthony, thanks for saving our asses out there man."

Kid got out and followed Anthony the dog close to him "I'm Kid" he muttered his hand reseted on his gun he was uneasy about new people but than this stranger had just saved his life so raising a weapon would have been ungrateful. "Who are you? Where did you come from?" Kid asked

TJ got out of the truck bed and gave a handshake to both men.
"I'm Tyson James Knight, Staff Sergeant United States Marine Corps 2nd Expeditionary Force, but none of that shit after my name matters anymore, not since Kentucky. Call me TJ. What year is it? 2017? 2018? I've been travelling mostly on foot since the dead decided to not stay down. I grew up in Inglewood. I haven't been there in a good decade or so. I heard the Navy and Air Force burned it to the ground along with Los Angeles, but I'd still like to see for myself. Been a good six months or so since I met anyone out here. Too many rotters and earthquakes, people want to move inland and get away from the earthquakes I guess. They sure as hell ain't gonna get away from rotters heading east."

Kid tense up at mention of the Marine background after his stepfather he had miss trust for the armed forces. He reach for his gun but stop himself and hid the sudden movement by patting his new dog. Than a thought occurred to him. "Do you know if it hit other countries the outbreak?" Kid may not trust the man but he wouldn't pass up chance for information

"Last I heard, and this is from when it all started, is that everywhere, the whole world is fucked. I'd imagine everywhere that shit on the right to keep and bear arms is even more fucked. And it serves them right."
TJ lifted the dead, rotting arms he had draped over his neck like a scarf and threw them into the treeline. "Survivor Rule #1: If you run into anybody that wants to disarm you, dedicate your life to killing and eating that motherfucker."

Anthony listened to TJ and Billy talk as he began looking around for any sign of stragglers from the herd they escaped from. He didn't much hear the conversation between Billy and TJ aside from the fact that TJ was of military background. After returning from his quick search he looked towards the two. "I didn't see any stragglers that might of followed us, should we camp here or find someplace else?" Anthony looked around "Also, as much as I hate to be the bringer of bad news but between the three of us- sorry four if we count the dog, we currently have enough food for three days." Anthony shifted nervously "We're gonna need to find a source of food soon."

Kid felt a moment of sadness that the outbreak had spread wolrd wide he already assumed as much but to have it confirmed his family back in Australia could still be alive like he was but then another moment of sadness hit him as he realized if they were he was never getting back home and who knew how long he had left in this new wolrd he was ready for every day to be his last
Kid listen to Anthony concerned of lack of food at the mentioned of gonna "need to find a source of food soon" Kid eyed him suspiciously 'we are not eating vegemite' Kid said deciding on a name and holding his new dog close. 'I'll go hunt'

TJ opened and rummaged around in his backpack, and produced a can of Hormel Spam processed meat rolled up in a sock, to keep it from clattering against other cans in his pack.
"Between the two of you, you have six days of food, I'm good until I get hungry. The most hungry of us is the most desperate. The second most hungry of us is that dog. The hungriest of us hunt for food even when we're dead." TJ seemed a bit eccentric if not a bit crazy.
"V ain't healthy enough to eat yet. Er, I mean look at him. If he eats too much too fast right now he'll get sick, maybe even die. Probably needs water more than anything. It's why following the dead and running from the dead sucks. At least the dead have noses as good as the dog for finding something to eat out here."
TJ hands the can of Spam to Billy.
"What I mean is the dog probably won't need a leash if you feed him. But don't spoil him. Right now he's an early warning system. He'll smell the dead coming before we do. We need to find shelter and fuel for the vehicles. Maybe even another vehicle. Means we need fuel, means we find a town. With all the dead out here I'm guessing there ain't no lifers being magnets for the dead out here except us. A town might be easier to smash and dash for supplies."

Anthony listened to the two of them talk as he looked around still spooked by the idea of the herd the dodged. "I wasn't suggesting we eat the dog Billy." He said after Billy pulled the dog close. "You I agree with TJ though, it might be a good idea to run into town real quick." Anthony looked at TJ and Billy. "Either of you have a map of the area? It might help us find a good place to look."

Kid went through his bag and pulled out tourist brochure that had a map on it.He look up at the other two 'I am on holiday after all' he said grinning 'tho the rotting parade didn't seem to make top 10 things to do and see. Some more weapons would be good if could swing it and..' Kid gave sad look at his bike 'maybe i should upgrade to a csr more dog friendly'

TJ had to wonder how long these two had been wandering around the mountains.
"I've heard, but not seen for myself, that LA got firebombed, gotta be 4 or 5 years ago. Them 'things to do' probably aren't so doable. Or at least not accessible. The military blew up bridges and overpasses to slow down the waves of the dead. These small towns are picked clean. We're gonna have to hit LA. Might have to do that on foot. We'll need the bike for recon, and that noisy bastard can lead the dead away while we're securing supplies. Gotta work tactically."

"Alright, LA it is, I think for now, we should rest for the night." Anthony began pulling a tarp out of his truck to make a primitive lean-too. "While we're on our way to LA we should keep an eye out for any signs of wildlife so we can snag more food along the way." Anthony finished setting up his shelter. "And if we find any buildings or abandoned campsites along the way, we should be careful but check them out, you would be surprised the amount of useful shit people leave behind." Anthony said smirking to himself musing over how he had gotten half the supplies for his explosives

Kid went through his bag and pulled out a flask
'when i first came to America i was in tour group. Really common for you to get sick being in such close quarters didn't think anything of it at first. Started getting really ill fever body aches that kind of thing she in and out of consciousness than happened she just lunge at one of the others i tackle her ground didn't even think just picked up a rock and..' Kid took big swig from the flask. 'Of coruse she already bit them and we didn't know what it was back than so things just got worst from there. But I was first monster no one knew what she was hell even I didn't back thene everyone just though I was the guy who killed a sick girl never look at me the same after that never trusted me even after we knew what it was.' Kid took another swig and held out the flask to the other two 'Who up?'

TJ took the flask and a swig of the drink. "I shouldn't have done that. Doesn't help with dehydration." TJ took another hypocritical drink. "Don't get too buzzed that you'll sleep through the dog barking at trouble."
"How about you, Ripper? What's up with the bag of pipe bombs?"
Post by Anthony "Ripper" Costello on May 10, 2018 2:02:40 GMT -5
Anthony winced at TJ calling him Ripper, "H-How do you know that name?" Anthony's hand started shaking as he contemplated reaching for his gun, "there's no way that he's from the group I escaped" He thought to himself "He would've killed me if he was." Anthony though to calm himself down before answering TJ's question. "I-I was a chemistry major in college, so I know what chemicals to mix together to make explosives, with a bit of trial and error and a few experiments in the past after things went to shit I was able to figure out how to make the explosives into functional bombs." Anthony scratched his head nervously. "That kind of firepower is valuable these days and it helps keep me valuable to groups so they don't feel the need to toss me aside." Anthony took the flask from TJ and took a small swig before passing it back. "I'll volunteer to take first watch if you guys like."

Anthony quickly covered his shoulder not liking that it was so easy to see before he answered TJ. "I know how to make gunpowder, all you need is charcoal, sulfur and saltpeter, gasoline however I do not know, if I knew the chemical compound than maybe i might be able to figure it out but I'm sure that would require advanced tools I'm not familiar with, but I can make a diesel substitute from ethanol if that ever becomes necessary." Anthony paused before speaking again. "But um.. please don't call me Ripper, I got that nickname from some really bad people who killed my friend a while back."
