Here We Go

So, here we go. My name is Paul, and that’s about all I’m going to say about who I am. If what people are saying is true, the government is shutting down sites like this left and right for causing hysteria. So let’s just leave it at “Paul.”

I’ve never had a blog before. Seriously, the word itself gives me hives. Never did Facebook or any of that cutesy social network crap. I’m a computer programmer by day, so the last thing I want to do in my free time is stare at a screen.

Then again, I haven’t been to work in four days so I guess I can’t use that excuse anymore.

Me and some of my work buddies set up this site so that we could try to spread the word about what’s going on. Maybe if we all come together, we can figure out what’s really happening, and if there’s a way to stop it. I’m not how much of what’s coming out of the media is true, but let’s face it – if the disease is really spreading like they say it is, we’re going to need to figure out where it originated. I’m guessing it’s our only hope.

I have no idea who’s going to read this, but if you found your way over here by Googling “viral” then you’re at least as scared as I am. Or you should be.

Enough for now. More to come.

    The virus is just starting to show up on the east coast. I had hoped this all was just some sick joke. People are disappearing and not coming back. I don’t know what to do. A few of us were thinking of heading north to N.H., or maybe even Maine. I don’t know, I heard they come from above, might be to many trees to hide in up north. I’ve heard nowhere is really safe, they can get you in your house just as easy. Got to go, I hear noises outside.

    It has come to my attention that tensions are high on the
    Pentagon grounds and rumors of soldiers being shot for desertion are true. The American public needs to be protected from this virus and themselves. Orders stand that no one will enter or leave the Pentagon, regardless of rank. Any person that tries to leave will be executed immediately. The doors must remain sealed. These orders come directly from the President of the United States and over rides orders from the Joint Chiefs. They are also under lockdown and any soldier that has to execute a higher ranking individual is protected from prosecution by the United States Lockdown Order of 2010 issued by the President himself. Also, any soldier that fails to stop anyone entering or leaving the building will also be executed on the spot. This is no joke, folks. This country is now under Martial Law Order 050010.

    Hope this e-mail finds you. I was able to escape my hiding place and make it across the border into South Dakota. I thought it was all over for me awhile back when my laptop batteries failed. Paul…something happened near Omaha, Paul! There was a huge Nuclear Explosion. The Nations Air and Space Defense was run from Offutt Airbase, only a few miles from Omaha. It must have been more than one Nuke from the blast. I could see it from the South Dakota border. It looked like it took out half of Nebraska. The EMF screwed up my laptop but I found one that been sealed at an abandoned computer store across the border. I don’t know what happened but surely it must have been an accident wouldn’t it?! What country would nuke their major
    StratCom Base? I’m running. I don’t know what is going on but I’m running. I’ll relay what info I can to you. I hope I don’t run into anything and I think you know what I mean. God Bless Paul. E-mail you soon…I hope.

    I am scared that the quarantine area might not be wide or tight enough. This illness, whatever it is, seems to be spreading west, towards us in California. Here in LA gun sales are up, again, but what can they do against a bug?
    A friend of mine in Texas says they want to close their borders to the north, moving fence-builders up from the south.
    Maybe we shall have to do the same.

    Safe at the moment. I’m in Rosebud South Dakota, although it seems more like a ghost town. It’s almost like no when had ever lived here. Except for the blood. Lots and lots of blood no matter what building I go into. Some worse than others. It also looks like there was a firefight at Townhall. Can’t figure any of this out because there aren’t any bodies anywhere. What could have happened to them? There are also abandoned cars and trucks and even Military Trucks. With lots of blood in and on them. I’m going to try and head North still. Maybe the colder it gets the more evidence I’ll find. I’d like to find at least one human being still alive anywhere. I haven’t been this scared since the Gulf War when we were ambushed. At least someone rescued me from that. Some how, I don’t think there are any rescuers coming for me this time.

    Found this on the internet right after i signed off with you. It’s scarier than Hell and the worse part, it’s not finished. Who types an e-mail and stops right in the middle of it. Unless. I don’t even want to think that. Here goes:

    To All Readers of this E-mail:
    Nuclear attacks have destroyed most of Nebraska, a small area of Colorado and completely destroyed New York City. I’ve been able to piece together that these were ordered by the President from his bunker, where ever the Hell that is. There is some type of virus that has criss-crossed the U.S. The government tried to stop it with nuclear blasts. Idiots! You can’t stop a virus with bombs. I understand that the Pentagon is still in operation although they are locked down. You’d have more luck getting into Fort Knox.
    I have a theory what the virus is and it scares me to death. I ran across a top secret CDC message that somehow got out. It is all in scientific jargon, but I’ll try to translate what I ca

Did you see just this weekend past, what they called the G20 protests, well dont get fool folks…The police was actually arresting people with the virus, they got about 600 but its too late anyway it is way too late.
    But I know a way out I reall do where a group of chosen people will be able to wait it out in peace, I know it and I have begun chosing folks with skills needed to survive.

    In Louisville still. It’s bad here. Few stores open and those that are are gouging prices. The army is everywhere, Ft. Knox hasn’t been so busy since WWII. The car has a full tank, bartered my mother’s platinum bracelet for that much and a couple of gallon cans. My brother and I gathered up the valuables, or rather, I gathered, he directed. He’s a quadriplegic which makes it more difficult for me to decide what to do. Should we run? All the local stations are giving the same bit about staying home, calling emergency numbers if someone in your household is infected, and staying calm. I noticed, however, there are few reporters out and about and almost no live feeds.

    Out here in rural Minnesota so far we have not seen any infection. However, we have sealed out everyone who does not live here or does not have a legitimate reason to be here. I won’t give any more details of our location – no one is being admitted.

    Fortunately we have a large National Guard installation in town and they have pretty much taken over. We have ringed the town with high voltage electrical fencing and lights – it helps to have a bank of wind generators on the edge of town that we were able to contain inside the fencing. No one leaves except during the day to go out to the neighboring farms to take care of the crops. The Guard was able to take over the farms early enough in the planting season, and they were converted to food production, rather than field corn, soy beans and sugar beets.

    Don’t try to find us – we are NOT accepting any “walkers” unless they are IMMEDIATE family of current residents. We were able to get our kids and grandkids in before there was any quarantine problems, and I always have had a large vegetable garden and fruit trees and bushes in our 5 acre Hobby farm that is within the fencing.

    We are hoping and praying that our safety measures will keep us all safe. I wish the best for the rest of you.

    I’m at a buddies house right now. The whole town has been abandoned, I drive through and it’s a ghost town. Some people have posted notes on their doors, telling loved ones were they’re going. Idiots. In a few months, people are going to start running out of food, and they’re going to be hot on their tales. As for me, theirs four other people in the house with me, two of them have guns, one’s a revolver the others a rifle. We’ve been told to shoot the vampires in the chest somewhere. That they have a sweet spot somewhere on their chests that will drop him quickly.
    As for me, I’m just calling out their to let you all know that you won’t find any salvation in Philadelphia OR Bucks County, OR anywhere around here. And if you just so happen to have a laptop and are looking at this post DO NOT use the main roads. A friend of mine, Jim, was traveling down their, said he was going to gun it on his own, see if he could get out of town. We got a call telling us that theirs a whole pack of vampires just waiting around them like hunters. They capsized his jeep, and his call cut off midway. We heard him scream.
    What are these things? They move so fast I can barely see them! I was looking into a town nearby with binoculars and I saw one of them flying after some poor guy. The thing went from one place to another, so quick I could barely keep track of him. It didn’t even tear the guy open, just smashed into him. Me and my buddies are planning to move soon, but they’re EVERYWHERE!!!

    My last posting. I think I’m infected, although at this point it doesn’t matter. I’m being chased, two days now. I’m lost. The jeep is almost out of gas and I don’t know what to do. I guess this is it then. Thanks Paul. You kept me alive this long. I don’t know what our government did to start this plague, but I wish I had died in that nuclear blast in Nebraska. The difference in death will be much more horrifying. Damn! the Jeep ran out of gas. I’m not going to go like some of the people have nor am I going to become one of those things. May God bless you Paul and keep you safe and may the good Lord forgive me for what I am about to do. A 45 caliber shell is a much better ending to this. Don’t let them get away with this Paul.

    We have managed to keep the virus and it’s effect out of the Pentagon. We are still on purified air and water and rations to eat. All Military personnel have performed admirably. Some of our civilian employees have not done so well. We have had to shoot three that tried to escape. The Joint Chiefs are under arrest by order of the President. They tried to override his authority. To remind all members in the Pentagon. Lock Down Order 2010 is still in effect. No one leaves or gets in. the Joint Chiefs tried to have the Pentagon forced open by a rogue military unit. I had to call an airstrike on them. This is why the joint Chiefs are incommunicado. the president is still secure in his bunker with most of the Congress and Senate. They have upgraded Martial Law order 050010 to 050010-ACT. I am now in complete control of the Pentagon by his orders. Nothing is approved that doesn’t cross my desk. Stay sharp Men and Women of the Military. This is what you were trained for.

    Fear is spreading all across the far north as the stories and rumours of the horrors happening in the south reach us. The dangers seem far away for the moment, as there is a huge southern population that is still virus free, but the dangers will ultimately come our way. Our isolation, climate, landscape, and small populations will only keep us safe for a time. The airlines are full of desparate people heading north above the treeline and into the almost endless summer sunlight of the region. There were reports that a virus carrier went viral soon after landing in Anchorage, Nome, Whitehorse, or Yellowknife – the story changes – but was caught in the sunlight and did not survive. Now flights are only allowed to land in broad daylight and are offloaded directly onto the runway. Anyone appearing ill is immediately quarantined, and if suspected of carrying the virus, shot without a chance to protest.

    Many fly-in communities, like Old Crow, feel they may have a bit more time than those communities that are accessible by land or by sea. They are allowing limited flights carrying supplies to land, and only in the daylight. Supplies are offloaded and the plane and all on board must leave again immediately. Anyone wishing to leave the community may do so, but will not be allowed to return. Still there is the danger that unauthorized flights will attempt to land as desparation continues to spread. Therefore, the landing strips in such communities will shortly be destroyed. We have heard that the Dempster Highway, Klondike Highway, and Alaska Highway have already had sections blockaded or destroyed to prevent any further northbound traffic by those routes.

    We have also heard rumours that the Russians, Chinese, Koreans, and Japanese, anxious to contain the spread of the virus, have banded together to blockade the Bering Strait and that many of the Aleutian Islands have been forcibly evacuated. We have not heard where the people were taken to, whether they were allowed to find refuge on the mainland, or if they have been confined to one of the larger islands. We are not sure what actions our own governments are taking, but know that we cannot wait, but must act on our own.

    In northern communities from Alaska to the Yukon, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Greenland people are taking advantage of the long summer days and making preparations, under the guidance of the Elders, to head out onto the land and away from the larger communities and the coastal areas. (Here in Tuktoyaktuk, we have tried to hang on as long as possible, but see more ships approaching, and know that they will continue to arrive until winter’s freeze-up.) Goods are being flown in; hunters are bringing in game; fish are being dried; clothing and shelter are being prepared. Some have already headed back to traditional hunting grounds on the land; others need more time. Come winter, all are prepared to flee even further into the tundra and spread out into even smaller groups. Life will be precarious, but this may be the best chance that some will survive.

    We have the advantage of the long days of summer for the time being, but we are terrified of what the long nights of winter might bring.

    Washington is covered with Virals. It’s hardly safe to even think about going out without lights anymore. They are getting more active, last week there was a sighting of three just down the street in day light, but they were crawling in the shadows. What is it that’s causing them to surface like this? It isn’t like them. Or is it? There are so many now, it’s crazy. The family and I are contemplating leaving here for another area, anyone know if Vancouver is still holding up? Not Canada, but Vancouver, WA? So few of us are left here, so many dead. So many infected.

    Seattle, WA.

    Things are back to normal here. Last night there was an attack, by what I do not know. What I do know is that I was searching for the latest news on the internet when I heard a gunshot outside. Then another. Then there were all sorts of guns firing right outside my apartment complex. I bolted metal plates to all the windows in my place when all this insanity first started, so I couldn’t see anything that was going on. But over the din of the gunfire I could hear people screaming. It sounded like the army was right outside my apartment! I was scared shitless! My girlfriend suddenly burst through the front door and I have to admit, before I knew it was her coming in, I shrieked like a little girl. I was embarrassed but my girlfriend didn’t seem to notice, or if she did she didn’t give any indication. She was bleeding a little bit. Apparently, she had sliced her arm open on the door to our building as she was running inside just as everything was starting to go down. She had been out getting a few things but all she was holding was a tub of butter. No bag. Just gripping it in her hand like she ran out of the store without paying for it. Then she went into the bathroom. As I was making my way over to make sure she was okay all the craziness outside stopped. Or more like faded away. There were a few pops of gunfire like someone had set off the few remaining fireworks after their grand finale. I heard the shower turn on and decided not to pursue the question. She was okay, just a little shaken and in need of the comfort afforded by a nice hot shower. She eventually came out of the bathroom wearing different clothes and went straight to bed. I know not to disturb her when she’s being quiet like this. Better to just let her be. I stayed awake until 6am. Without being able to see outside I wanted to make sure the sun was up before having a rest. They say that no one ever has any issues during daylight. Is this true??? I conked out in the same chair I’m typing in right now.

    Anyway, that was all really weird and I’m still trying to figure it out. I’ll jot down more later when I can formulate a logical explanation for what I heard. But for now, I gotta get gettin’, fellas. My girlfriend is finally awake and feeling frisky. She’s just come into the room and started removing her clothes! I have a feeling everything is going to be just fine . . .

    I don’t know how long the southeast infrastructure is going to hold up, so I’m just going to share what I know and hope that word spreads.


    We heard rumors of infection spreading from the west several weeks ago. When Pensacola went dark, we checked the Net for info. After we saw that video of the virals swarming the evacuees on the greyhound, we headed east as fast as we could. We talked with a friend who stayed behind in Tallahassee to help, and she said they had spotted active pods in Apalachicola forest. All we’re getting today is voicemails and Out of Service messages.

    We’ve fled to Jacksonville in the hopes that maybe we can weather this out on some island on the river or maybe off the coast. I’ve only seen these things in spotty online video. Does anybody know if these things can swim?

    This hardly seems enough, but good luck to everybody out there. Take care of each other.

    I Can’t believe all this “We’re our own nation” crap. We’re in just as much danger here as in ****ing Ground Zero. Speaking of Zero, are you guys still hunting him down? Gotta say Paul, that takes some guts. All I’m doing out here is moving from burned city to burned city. The virals have mostly cleared out of here, haven’t seen a major population of them for quite a while. Is it true that the east coast finally went under? God, I thought the military would be better organized than this! The whole “Slash and Burn” idea was just awesome. Sarcasm.

    Also, something really weird happened the other day. I was walking by an old street toward the Nevada border to get out of state, and I swear to god I saw a girl, around twelve, walking into the trees. I’ll admit, it rattled my cage enough that I didn’t go looking for her. I kept my 1911 in my hand the rest of the day.

    So I found this site, the one my cousin has been telling me about and now I am wondering if the things she told me are actually true. In our last letter, she told me things were crazy round Seattle, people dissapearing, army everywhere, curfews and… The funny thing is, I told my mum, and she told me not to be so stupid and that Lila was probably just playing a prank or something, I mean, afterall, it would be on the news right?
    It’s been a month now and she hasnt replied. Mum hasnt heard from Aunt Tanya and even she is getting pretty worried. But she couldnt do anything, erm, its like the UK has been blocked off from America and now we cant get hold of anyone who will tell me where my family is. So mum has told me to keep quiet about what Lila told me, but I need answers and I just hope whatever this Viral thing is, that it wont come anywhere near me or my mum.
    Everything in school, in the news, on the streets, its all so normal that I want to just scream, “Something is happening! Something horrible and terrifying is happening, and we have to DO something!” But I can’t. No one can, and I’m sure that if my mum or even me, if I did something like that, we would be shut up before anyone could ever find out. So tell me what you need, what you want,how I can help. Because it seems like the rest of the world just aint listening.

    I’m not sure if what I’m about to say makes any sense, hell it dosen’t even make sense to me. All I remember is making the long commute home on I94 after an exceedingly long surgery schedule, damn surgeons trying to kill their backlog prior to the long holiday weekend. Nothing unusual, only the mundane, then the gut-wrenching sound of rubber against pavement, blinding crimson lights, and then blackness.

    I awoke this morning to an ear-splitting headache, endotracheal tube in my mouth, conduits coming into and out of every orifice, and silence, except for the soothing whoosh of the ventilator. I immediately decatheterized myself, thankful for the pain, which confirmed my existence, and rolled from my ICU bed onto the floor. The place was in shambles with broken glass and medical equipment strewn into every possible recess. Whatever happened here I’m glad I missed. The only sign of activity was the emergency lighting system, and my lone ventilator. Thank God for batteries and solar panels, that many hospitals have been incorporating as back-up emergency measures. The poor fellow in the adjacent bed was not as lucky, or was he? I’m not so sure. Judging by the state of decomposure, he’s been dead for weeks, maybe longer. I wish I’d studied more in pathology class. I managed to pull myself upright and stumble to the window, only to witness a scene that could only be described as armegeddon. What the hell happened here?
    I was fortunate to find this computer monitor still flickering and your web page visible under layers of dust. I’ve read the many unfathomable messages here, and can only hope I’m not the last so-called non-viral in Chicago. I’m going to scrounge together some supplies and venture out of my safe haven, if that’s what you’d call this. Hopefully I’ll find others like me, at least not the monsters I’ve read about here. I’ll try to stay informed whenever I encounter a working web connection, and post any info I’ve obtained…pray for me.

    Does anybody know if the Bass Islands in Lake Erie are infected? I have a friend with a house on Middle Bass. He asked us to join him three weeks ago but we haven’t heard form him since he left. I’m not sure I want to risk the drive just to find out it just as bad.

    Our water shut off again today. All we have is one full tub and two 5 gallon containers. I’m going to rig something to catch the rain water from the roof but the neighbor said the rain is contaminated by fall out. I’m not sure that this is still the case because the most of our weather this time of year is coming out of Canada.

    I’m taking my wife and kids out of this God forsaken place. D.C. was overrun and we were forced to go to the Tidewater area where my parents live. I’ve seen enough apocalyptic movies in the past to know that it was time to be ghost from the good ol’ U S of A…….if it can still be called that. When we heard of the first viral sightings in Hampton, my father and I decided to pull every last cent together we could muster and buy a boat. Big enough for seven of us. We’ve just finished stocking it for us to survive about two weeks. This would’ve taken less time but we decided to err on caution and do everything during the day time. We haven’t heard from our family in NY and Philly in over three weeks now and fear the worst. But now is the time for self preservation and the preservation of your immediate family. That means giving my children the best opportunity for survival. We leave tomorrow at the crack of dawn heading for the Caribbean. I can only hope and pray that we make it and when we get there, it’s not crawling with these bloodsucking bastards. I pray we all get through this longest of nights that we’ve all encountered. May God bless you all.

    Do not believe what the government is spitting out in airwaves, newspapers and magazines. The CDC may call this an epidemic, but guess what? It is too far-fetched to be consumed by the masses right now. So in response, our elected leaders profess to protect us from the truth. It is all too real out there! There is a storm of destruction heading our way, and by the time you realize you have been engulfed, then it will be late. Only the skeptical and eccentric will survive the initial wave of inhalation. Creatures unlike you have never seen will command the dark and reshape the landscape. Forget mortgages, babysitters, cubicle nation, and your petty neighborly differences. The end is near. Remain skeptical and vigilant for alternative sources of information and you may sleep another night. Good luck to all of us.
