Jan. 1, 2023
I don’t care if it’s really 2023 or not. Time is just not important anymore. Expect maybe how long we have to live?

Was thinking about it some more. No wonder that water tasted funny. How many zombs are in that lake? I know we didn’t purposely drink any of it, but might have swallowed some in the struggle to get here. Are we only days away from being zombs now? Are we contaminated? Infected? Whatever you call it! I haven’t said anything to the boys yet. Don’t want to scare them if nothing is going to happen. On the other hand, is this it?

As we prepare to get out of here before any more zombs hit the water, I have kept a close eye on the boys. Watching for any signs that they are changing. Nothing so far. I wonder how long it is before I can forget about this crazy idea. Q doesn’t shut up about why the zombs are in the water. I think he wants to go fishing for some of them. Headed in the opposite direction from where those people came from. Seriously don’t want to know what they are up too.

Back to tree climbing. Lots more noise in these woods. Not sure what it is. We haven’t seen much. Time to move

Holy shit. We almost died twice! Or by two different creatures. Zombs and a motherfucking bear. BEAR. I mean I’ve hardly seen much wild life period and the first thing we see is a bear. And a hungry one. We woke up to the sound of it about to climb the tree we were in. I don’t know if we were in its tree or it just smelled us. Q almost fell right out of the tree when he saw it. James was about to shoot it, but I told him not unless he has to. I didn’t want the noise to bring any unwanted attention. We did the old throw branches at it trick, but that works better on zombs. Pissed the bear off. Luckily we were close to another tree so we waited for it to start climbing then we jumped, and climbed down the other tree. The bear didn’t forget about us. It climbed back down, and started right after us. We ran as fast as we could, and ran right into a pack of zombs. I think they were just as surprised to see us as we were to see them. Too bad they didn’t know the real surprise was what was behind us. I told the boys to freeze for a second. I think the zombs were eating someone, but I’m not sure. They are usually quicker to attack, but again maybe they were surprised. Distracted by something. I know its crazy but I told the boys when I say go we run past the zombs. I turned and waited for the bear. Felt like forever. Actually thought for a sec it stopped. If that was the case, we would have been in trouble. Then GO! Just shoved our way around the zombs, and kept going. No zombs or bear followed. Wonder who won that fight. Maybe there is a zombie bear out there now.

It’s March!!! Maybe. Even harder to keep track when you haven’t written anything in a long time. Weird writing again. Sorry to ignore you journal. Trust me there were days I stared at you thinking I should be writing. Just couldn’t do it. What? Yes, this means we finally made it out of the forest. Found a road. Followed it. Then another. And another. Yes, lots of wonderful roads. Actually found some signs, and might be headed in the right direction to get out of this state. Maybe. It’s been a lot of tired walking. Few zombs. I guess they are all in the forest. And no people either. Hopefully I haven’t cursed things by writing again. Oh well, good to be back!
