Bugout! California Part 138 – The Battle of Portland

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales

A huge crowd ringed the Swan Island Basin in Portland, Oregon, many with signs, most wearing all black with masks covering their faces below the eyes. Behind them were several hundred Portland PD officers, in riot gear, attempting to stay between them and a growing number of counter-protesters.

Nathan watched the water nervously as the big EU Navy ship cruised slowly towards the dock. He turned every few seconds to watch the counter-protesters, holding signs that said NO UN along with American flags. He was only twenty-five, medium build, tattoos covering his upper arms and neck, large round earrings stretching his lobes.

“Hey, Sean,” he said quietly. “This makes me nervous. There’s only one way out of here, and that’s more counter protesters than I’ve ever seen before. Why is the Portland PD letting them get so close?”

Sean’s eyes turned his direction, his cheeks rising under his black bandana…

Bugout! California Part 137 – The Patriots of Bend

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales

Tex was leading the small force to the apartment building across the street from the CHP headquarters in Sacramento. Jules, Ted, and Sparky followed, along with CHP Officers Teter and Goldberg. The building was pockmarked with bullets, a few residents coming out, more driving in to survey the damage, having left when the gunfire started.

“Who’s gonna clean this up?” Sparky asked. Tex shot him a smirk as they neared the door to the lobby.

“Where bodies?” Jules asked.

“Penthouse floor,” Goldberg said. “Middle of the building. Room 405.”

“Is it over?” asked an old woman, who was standing in the sidewalk with a cart full of belongings.

“Yes, but we’re going to check for any enemy fighters who might still be alive,” Officer Teter said. “Please stay out here until we’ve given the all clear.”

“Yes sir,” she said. “Thank you.”

The group went into the front door. “Want…

Bugout! California Part 136 – Roads and Passes

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales

The battle near the CHP Headquarters in Sacramento continued to rage.

In the battle wagon, Robbie looked at Morgan, who’d just said that her rear machine guns displayed an overheat warning. “Hold off on the rear guns for a moment, then. I’ll watch with the mini-gun, you keep an eye across the river and use the front machine guns.”

There was still a high volume of fire coming from the CHP building, but it was almost all M60 fire, judging by how rapid the rate was. That tapered off after a couple of minutes. Robbie didn’t see any more enemy trucks coming at them from Tenth Street, and the north bank of the American River was covered with cruising off-roaders.

“I think we won,” Morgan said.

“Yeah,” Robbie said, scanning with his gun sight. “No movement.”

“Checking the apps,” Morgan said, looking at her phone. “Lots of hits. Can’t tell…

Bugout! California Part 135 – Northern Recruitment

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales

Jonathan sat in his Bend, Oregon apartment, next to his girlfriend Courtney. He was a well-built young man in his late twenties, wearing a t-shirt and board shorts, with tattoos on his arms and a shaved head. She was small and blonde, both ears covered with rings on the ends, tattoos on her upper arms and neck, with a hint of more beneath her ragged sweatshirt.

“Let’s go someplace,” Courtney said. “I’m bored.”

“In a while,” Jonathan said. “I want to see if they say more about those EU Navy ships.”

She stared at him for a moment, her eyes intense below her nearly invisible blonde eyebrows. “Looking to get arrested again?”

He looked at her and chuckled. “Yeah, maybe.”

“Well count me out, and don’t expect me to use my savings bailing you out again.”

He chuckled. “You like what you see going on in California? I don’t. Those…
