Bugout! California Part 164 – Trains and Cranes

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales

Kaitlyn and Seth stared at the history program screen, Angel and Megan on the right of them, Kaylee and Trevor on the left. The alarm went off on the PC.

“There’s a third group,” Kaitlyn said. “That makes fifteen hundred.”

“Wonder if they’re coming here?” Kaylee asked.

“Probably depends on their intelligence,” Trevor said. “If they know that Ivan is here, they might make an assault.”

“Do we have enough people outside?” Megan asked.

“Probably,” Trevor said, “but I’m guessing they won’t come here. I think they’re gonna head to the border to help out.”

The alarm went off again.

“Oh no,” Megan said. “More?”

“Not in the same place,” Seth said. “Move the screen towards the indicator there.”

Kaitlyn nodded and used the mouse to re-orient the screen. “That’s south of the border!”

“How far south?” Megan asked.

Trevor laughed. “We just incinerated a bunch of the enemy. There’s…

Bugout! California Part 163 – The Burning Desert

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California

Scagsdale's Tales

“Where’s Tex?” Karen asked, coming out of the shadows with Haley.

“Right behind us,” Erica said. “Don’t worry, they’re all right.”

“Where’s Anna gonna be?” Sam asked.

“The room that Susanne used before she got moved outside, I suspect.”

They hurried down the dark shaft, past the large room, which was full of the buzz of conversation.

Bugout! California Part 162 – Death from Above

Here’s the next episode of Bugout! California.

Scagsdale's Tales

Sam drove the Jeep down the side of the hill, following Garrett’s Jeep, Sid and Yvonne behind them in the third. They pulled past the smoking remains of the two booby-trapped semi-trucks.

“Be careful, there might be more mines,” Ted yelled as the group gathered. The off-roaders were on the next ridge, keeping watch.

“We’re not going to learn anything from this mess,” Sam said.

“You got that right, partner,” Tex said, Jules nodding in agreement.

“You know where the tracks start up again, though, right?” Shelly asked Sid, who was staring at the ground.

“They used dirt bikes,” Sid said, pointing. “Looks like at least five. Last night, if I had to guess.”

“There’s probably still some bad guys around, then,” Yvonne said.

“That why off-roaders watch,” Jules said. “We follow tracks?”

“Yeah, but I’d better take the lead,” Sid said.

“I’m driving,” Yvonne said. He nodded, and everybody…
