Bugout! California Part 59 – Sunshine Summit

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales


Sid watched Yvonne driving the Jeep as they raced down southbound on Route 79.

“We’re making good time,” Yvonne said, glancing at Sid.

“No traffic,” Sid said. “Not that there’s usually any traffic out here.”

“I’ve had one eye in the rear-view mirror most of the way, after what you and Sam pulled back in La Quinta.”

“Wonder how far along the other group is?” Sid asked.

“I suspect we’ll be hearing from them soon,” Yvonne said.

“I’m worried about Sam,” Sid said.

“Yeah, I can tell. Wondered when you were gonna bring that up.”

Sid sighed. “He’s in a rage. Never seen him like this. We’ll have to watch him.”

“What do you think he’ll do?”

“Take chances where he shouldn’t,” Sid said. “Kill people for fun. Not care if he gets killed.”

“He’ll probably settle down,” Yvonne said. “That last thing was right after he lost her.”

Bugout! California Part 58 – Coaches

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California. Happy Thanksgiving!

Scagsdale's Tales


“Glad we’re riding by ourselves,” Kaitlyn said, glancing at Seth from the driver’s seat.

“I like this better than the trip to the motor homes,” Seth said.


“Because I can look at you more,” he said.

“Oh, brother.”

“We’re getting close to the road already.”

“What is it again?”

“Route 78,” Seth said. “Not sure if you guys went that way or not.”

“I think we did. It goes through Scissors Crossing, right?”

“Yep,” Seth said. “Hope we don’t get followed.

“Me too. I just want a little time to relax. Maybe a little us time.”

“We’ve got another battle coming,” Seth said, “but maybe we’ll get a little break after that. At least we’re having time like this.”

“True. It does help us to get to know each other a little bit.”

“Has so far,” Seth said. “We’ve been together for quite a few hours now.”

“Not counting…

Bugout! California Part 57 – Magic Mountain

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales


“I’m surprised nobody’s followed us,” Justin said, behind the wheel of a new Volvo. “We’re almost to I-5 already.”

Katie looked at him, then back at the road ahead. “I’m surprised they’re moving us out of SoCal. If things are really settled there, why’d we get hit?”

“I didn’t get the impression that the battle is over,” Justin said. “Just that there’s enough patriots there to finish the job.”

Katie chuckled. “What happened to the cynical cat I used to know?”

Justin glanced at her. “Still inside me, but it’s time to get behind a cause. Having my girlfriend abducted and raped over and over had an impact.”

“Oh,” Katie said softly.

“I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have said that.”

“No, I’m glad you did,” Katie said. “My mind is trying to push that experience back. I need to remember all of it. Every second of it. I need to keep…

Here’s a short selection:

“Well, we need to get out of this area,” Richardson said. “Look, the street is blocked up ahead.”

“There’s no other way out of here, with these damn one-way streets,” Lita cried.

Machine gun fire erupted from above, hitting a car three spots in front of them.

“Out of the car,” Richardson yelled. He rushed to the back, getting out his M-16, shooting at the rooftop where the fire was coming from.

“Juan Carlos, help Madison get to the sidewalk. Brendan, help be with the guns. Lita and Hannah, go with Juan Carlos and Madison.”

“Look out!” Brendan shouted, pointing at the roof on the other side of the street. He aimed the SMAW and fired, hitting the façade of the old building, the man with a…
