Location, About a mile from Safe Zone 1.
Hey, Joey Again, I'm really tired today, and very scared.. We were woke up by sirens at around 2 Am, and told to go to the Safe House. Snipers were firing, and troops were headin to the walls. We were told, that a massive crowd, of around 25,000 infected are about a mile from our Safe Zone. Many people were freaking out by this point.
I stepped up at this point, and suggested that we try and scare the infected away... At first, the soldiers laughed upon me, but a scientist stepped up and said it could work. I was then escourted to the walls, and well, explained how it could work. Instead of hunkering down, and hiding.. Why not take a tank, and charge a them?
The plan, is to send out a single tank, and have it lauch a very bombs their way, to try and discourage them to attack. The gates to the Safe Zone, will have to be left open to allow the Tank to re-enter once they have done the damage. So, a truck is going to be stationed by their, to try and act as a barrier.
So, here goes..
Above, is the army truck, carrieing 30 soldiers. Heading to the gate.
Above, is the tank heading out the gate..
Above, is the tank getting into position.
Here's the tank firing it's first projectile.
when it landed, it seemed to have little effect on the infected, but after a minute they started backing away...
So, we decided to follow them another mile out of the Safe Zone to ensure they don't come back.
Above, is the tank starting to follow the infected..
And finally, the second projectile is fired. The infected are a good few hundred meters infront of the tank, and the trees are good at hiding them..
So, we managed to keep off 25,000 infected, still a few hundred infected attacked, but the main crowd was put off. This made history too, this was the first time we confronted infected, instead of being cooped up. This, is very good news, because prior to this, we would expect them to just ignore the vehicle, but now we know they aknowledge the vehicles, and seem to be pretty afraid of it.
This, could mean that we can start sending out scout forces, to meet head on with crowds of infected.......

Hey, Joey again.. I was just rewarded, and stuff, and it was pretty cool. I'm actually thinking about joining the military, but don't know. Anyways, work has begun on expanding the Safe Zone again. Something about more people are coming in?
This journal has gone by real fast, better start on a new notebook.. By for now!
I hope you liked this, it's the first time i've done a "action" update..
But, just so people don't get confused.. Here's a little thing..
If you have noticed, I changed the title, with "Year 1" at it. I'm going to be making this CJ goe year by year. With dates selected from each year. At the Top of each Entry of this Cj, I will have the Date and location that the story is in now. Having a CJ like this goe year by year, makes it much easier for me to write, cause now I have a realistic time rate, and locations, and a end date.
Also, The "Joey Stories" are Journal entrys made by Joey. Joey, is the only prominent character in this CJ, that and the President. Most other characters will goe unamed, or have little effect in the story.
Some things to expect in Year 1:
Safety Zone Expansion
More "Action" parts of the CJ
More Story related Joey Stories.
And, Much more.. About 16 more to be exact!
Now, What I want you to do, is to leave a comment below, saying what you think could go next in the CJ. It really helps me with writing it!
Also, in that comment, tell me if I should continue with the Joey Stories, or just stop them now. I think they can add some cool parts to the CJ, and help give the story a different perspective, but rarely will he be a major part of the story..
~Edit~ I changed the size of the pictures, from very large, to 800x600.. Which fits very nicely in CJ format..
