Bugout! California Part 182 – Live Video

Scagsdale's Tales

“Get on the guns!” Ted shouted, jumping into the driver’s seat and pulling down the main sight, Haley manning the front and rear guns, as Nancy Main looked on in horror.

Ted fired the mini gun at almost the same split second that Sparky, Angel, and Cody fired, shredding the Channel 10 van in seconds.

“Don’t overkill,” Jules said. “Robbie sees UN vans leaving the country club. Conserve ammo.”

“Shit, how many vans?” Haley asked.

“Lots,” Robbie said. “I’d move to a better position while you can.”

The rig was pinged with machine gun fire.

“Too late,” Ted shouted. “Where’s that coming from?”

“I see them,” Bryan said, stuffing the M60 out the driver’s side gun slit and opening fire, cutting down several UN Peacekeepers before they could make it to cover.

“Don’t come out of siege mode!” Jules said.

“I saw the teamsters and those special forces guys driving…

Bugout! California Part 181 – News Van

Scagsdale's Tales

Bryan was sitting in the battle wagon driver’s seat, watching out the window as the others were sleeping. It was barely six in the morning. A few cars had come through the parking lot, the drivers doing a double take when they saw the massive rig sitting there. The bedroom door opened, Haley and Ted coming out. That woke Brianna on the couch.

“Still quiet?” Ted asked.

“Yeah, boss, nothing going on yet. People are looking us over as they drive through the parking lot, but that’s about it.”

“Anything from Dodge City?” Haley asked.

“Nope, I think they’ve been cycling people out to sleep too.”

“Good,” Ted said. “Why don’t you take a break now?”

“I’m fine, slept four hours, remember?”

“Oh, that’s right,” Haley said. “They’re young.”

Ted snickered. “Suit yourself, but I don’t know when the next chance will be.”

“There’s a donut shop close by,” Brianna…

Bugout! California Part 180 – Rumble in the Distance

Scagsdale's Tales

Ted was driving the battle wagon, taking the off-ramp from I-805 onto westbound Sweetwater Road.

“Where should we set up?” he asked over the Bluetooth headset.

“For now, I’d set up at the golf course and the shopping center across Sweetwater from there,” Seth said. “Be advised that the enemy halted their advance and moved back onto the Bonita Country Club.”

“Heard that, partner,” Tex said. “Wonder what’s up?”

“They’ve taken big losses around Lemon Grove,” Seth said, “and lost Dana Point Harbor as a landing spot. Then Ivan’s video hit the airwaves. They know the diversion they had in mind isn’t going to make any difference. Probably doesn’t seem worth the bloodbath they’ll be running into.”

“Dammit,” Ted said. “So what do we do? Just hang out for a while?”

“Yeah,” Seth said. “We’re looking at the big picture. We’ll get back to you.”

“When are you guys gonna…

Bugout! California Part 179 – Beams and Semis

Scagsdale's Tales

Doug was sitting in the commander’s seat of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, watching the horizon with the CIV FLIR unit. Jorge sat in the driver’s seat.

“Still can’t see them?” Jorge asked.

“Naw, they’re still way too far out. What’s Gonzales up to?”

“He’s out with Sessions and the other Marines, getting some air. You finished eating?”

Doug turned towards him. “Yeah. Was about ready to get a little shut-eye.”

“That’s what I was thinking. The long-range app shows the enemy stopping their march. They’re probably bedding down for the night.”

“Wish we had an alarm setting on the apps. They might get moving before morning.”

“Don’t worry, there’s people watching the satellite feeds and the detail apps too,” Jorge said. “We’ll get notified. Trust me.”

Doug nodded, climbing out of the commander’s seat and returning to his gunner’s seat. “Gonna be tough sleeping here.”

Jorge laughed. “Hell, I’m so…
