Scagsdale's Tales

Robbie drove slowly down Yukon Street to his apartment. The streets were filled with debris and broken glass.

His driveway was empty. None of the usual cars in the extra spaces in front. The door of the front ground-floor unit was hanging open. The rear ground floor unit past the three garage doors looked fine. He hit his opener and waited for the middle garage door to open, then pulled inside and got out, opening the trunk. He grabbed his tools off the shelves on the left wall, stowing them to the back of the trunk, then hurried up the stairs to his unit. His next-door neighbor cracked open her door.

“Robbie?” the small blonde woman asked. She was small and thin with a pretty face, about Robbie’s age.

“Morgan,” he said. “You okay? How about Brianna?”

“I’m okay, but last night was scary. Brianna’s dad came and got her…

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales

Robbie was just about asleep on his mom’s office couch when he heard a crash, then a scream. He peeked out the window into the side yard, seeing one kid helping another over the fence by the garage. He could hear crying. Somebody knocked on his door.

“Yeah,” Robbie said. The door opened and Gil walked in with his rifle.

“What happened?”

Robbie snickered. “Some stupid kid tried to bust through the back garage door. Sounded like he broke his shoulder.”

Gil cracked up. “Why didn’t they just break the window there?”

“All these windows are visible from the surrounding houses,” Robbie said. “The back garage door is the only one that’s well hidden. Probably why my dad blocked it up.”

“Think they’ll be back?”

“Hell, Gil, who knows? I need to get back to sleep.”

“Yeah, me too,” Gil said. He left, closing the door behind him, going back…

“Be careful by the windows,” Robbie said as they all got up the stairs. A couple of gunshots sounded.

“That’s not very far away,” Gil said. “Your dad have any guns around here?”

“He has a gun safe, but I don’t have the combination,” Robbie said. “If he bugged out in the motor home, he probably took most of his guns with him.”

“I’ll put the food and beer in the fridge,” Steve said.

“Cool,” Robbie said. “I’m gonna fire up my dad’s PC and see if I can access the video cameras.”

Justin sat on the couch in the living room and turned on the lamp next to him. Steve came in from the kitchen and sat on the other end of the couch, pulling out his phone.

“Is your sis someplace safe?” Justin asked.

Steve looked up from his phone. “She’s in Hermosa. Said the vibe there isn’t…

Bugout! California Part 2 – The Range

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales

“Trevor, you ready yet? It’s a long drive,” Seth said, standing next to his late-model Toyota Four-Runner as the sun was coming up. He was just twenty-one, dark brown hair and eyebrows, medium build. He had an innocent look, with a clean complexion and a delicate mouth and nose, finished off by striking steel-gray eyes.

“Don’t get your panties in a bunch,” Trevor said, rushing out to the Four-Runner with his rifle case and a metal ammo box. “We got plenty of time.” He opened the rear gate and tossed his rifle next to Seth’s, then shut it and went to the passenger side door, slipping his large, stout frame inside. Trevor was a redhead with freckles and mealy features. He wasn’t handsome like Seth, but he made up for it with a forceful personality. “Who else is going?”

“Angel and Matt,” Seth said. “Maybe Matt’s younger brother.” He pulled…
