The gunfire behind the line of the RVs intensified. Then there was the sound of squealing tires. Frank looked in his rear view mirror and saw a Humvee rolling off of the road, headlights dancing around. Then it rolled and caught fire, lighting the dirt around it in a hideous glow. A moment later he saw headlights coming up the left lane. It was a pickup truck trying to come up beside the motor homes.

“Crap,” Frank shouted. “I just saw a Humvee eat it, and now one of the pickup trucks is trying to get along side of us. Get the shotgun.”

“Will do,” Jane said, and she unbuckled and ran back into the bedroom. She was back with the gun in a second. Instead of getting back into her seat, she got on the couch and opened the side window. She pointed the shotgun out the window and…

“Need anything from the coach, honey?” Frank asked.

“Why, you going over there?” Jane asked.

“Yes, I need to get the laptop and bring it over here.”

“I’ll go with you. We need to feed Lucy and Mr. Wonderful.”

“Don’t go eating anything back there,” Mary said. “I broke out a few trays of lasagna that we had in the deep freeze. They’re in the oven now…be done in an hour or so.”

“Sounds great,” Jane said.

“We’ll be back in a few minutes,” Frank said as they left with Lucy.

The night was cool and clear as they walked.

“What do you think?” Jane asked.

“I think we’re getting organized in the right way. You?”

“Same. I was hoping we could stay here for a day or two. At this point, I feel like we’ll be lucky if we’re here long enough to get some sleep tonight. I’m tired.”

Jeb climbed off the roof of his rig as quickly as he could, and ducked into it to grab his hunting rifle. Then he jogged over to the front gate with Frank and Jane, followed by Jerry and Jasmine. Charlie and Hilda came running out of their rig and followed too. Lucy was barking and looking around.

“Does Lucy see something?” Jeb asked, trying to scan the area as they ran.

“Don’t know,” Frank said. “She might just be nervous because we’re nervous.”

The Sheriff’s rig pulled to a stop just inside the gate, and lurched as the engine shut off. Kurt and Mary were running over. Jeb got to the door of the rig first and pulled it open. The Sheriff was at the door, holding his left hand, which was covered in blood.

“Sheriff, you alright?” Jeb said.

“My hand’s a little messed up, and I’m pissed,” he…

“Good,” Frank said. “We have just enough light left to get setup.”

“Are you going to put out all of the slides and unhook the TOAD?” Jane asked. “Maybe we should stay ready to go, just in case.”

“How about if I just hook up the electrical?”

“Don’t you think that would be a good idea?”

“Probably,” Frank said. He climbed into the driver’s seat and started the engine back up. The gate opened, and Charlie drove through, followed by Jerry. Frank got behind them.

“Wonder if they have pull-through sites?” Jane asked.

“I’ll look for one. That way we won’t have to back up.”

“Good,” Jane said. Lucy looked up at Jane, wagging her tail. “Oh, all right, come on up.”

“Look,” Frank said, “that row that Charlie and Jerry are pulling into are all pull through.”

“Perfect.”

Frank turned onto the row, and slowly pulled into the site…
