September 8th   It’s almost time…..

Ryan, Bill and I discussed going on another scouting trip tomorrow night. We have some good information on the gang at the lumber yard but a second scouting trip needs to be done.

These guys are slack and over confident. No patrols at all during the night – just their two dogs roaming the yard. We have a map of the yard, building and immediate area. They have limited exits once inside. I doubt they have HAM radio – no external antenna’s so calling for back up is unlikely unless they are close by.



The three of us brainstormed how this would all go down based on what we know now. We figured our group would consist of 5-6 people who would approach from the southern direction.

If no one is visible – two would make their way up in the brush next to the railroad tracks until they reached the northern corner of the fence. This would be Group #1. They would split and separate out so one person covers the rear while the other covers the western side of the building. 

Group #2 would make their way to the southern corner of the fence near the railroad tracks. They will cover the entire east side and take out anyone exiting. 

Group #3 will watch the entire front entrance from the east near the railroad tracks. Forgot to draw it on the map but I remember there was a broken down car just off the road near the tracks. It and its engine block could provide cover.

Everyone will have to know their fields of fire to prevent a friendly fire situation.

As gang members exit the building they will be taken out. Semi-automatic rifle fire is needed. Range is too far for shotguns or pistols.

The thing is – we need to get them out of the building. No tear gas and no smoke grenades. It has to be fire. The old Molotov Cocktail should do the trick. Thinking we will need one group just to do that – from the West-side of the building through the two windows. Multiple Molotov’s through the windows and a couple on the roof as well. That should push them in Group #1, #2, and #3′s direction.

Still thinking about what to do about the dogs. If they start freaking out the gang could start coming outside before we are fully ready.

The time is drawing near.

I just thought of something. Something I didn’t think about until now. What if there are innocent women and children in the building?
