So we are still at the Aldi store. We are totally surrounded by zombies, so we have covered up the windows as best we can so we can stop staring at each other. We have spent the last few days discussing (arguing) about what to do next. We can not go back to our compound, there is just too much damage. After much persuasion it looks like we will all be going back to the farm in Wisconsin. At least it will be safe - safer than here anyway. Having spent some time on the farm I think the change will do all these people good. Roger still isn't too keen on the idea, but he doesn't have a concrete plan right now so he has decided to give it a chance. I figure getting away from the madness around here will let everyone recharge their batteries.
We have been looking at what we have as far as vehicles, food, weapons and ammo. One of the vehicles needs two tires since that was the one that drove over the fence. Food is really low, the Aldi doesn't have much left so we will have to make a stop or two along the way. Weapons and ammo are in really good shape because of the Hoffman Estates run. We will be stopping at Gander Mountain again to pick up the supplies we locked up in a back office space there.
We really don't know what to do for Shawn anymore. We need to be icing his knee and the only thing we have are those ice packs you find in first aid kits, but they only last a minute or two. We have been bringing snow in from outside, but that melts pretty quick. There was a clinic we drove by on Hwy 50 so we will have to hope there is something left there that we can use - like stronger pain pills, a decent leg brace and some crutches.
