September 10th   Planning is over – now its time…..

The group has been formed that will hit the gang at the lumber yard.




Phil (from Hwy 72)

Karl (from Walnut Street)

Sam (from Walnut Street)

and myself.

I had talked to Phil about the plan when the last group was dropped off for the week. He said he wanted to be included – especially after their group had been hit. He said he felt guilty about Mike and Neil – that if it wasn’t for him contacting us they would still be alive. I told him that it was not his fault and we all are responsible for our own decisions.

Karl had already volunteered and I radioed him earlier and told him that tomorrow night was it. I will pick him up around 10:00am. He said he was bringing someone as well.

Bill, Ryan, Kenny and myself got together and discussed the plans for tomorrow night. We went over the plans repeatedly and tried to consider potential problems. Dogs barking, someone coming outside before we were ready, or possible late arrivals to the lumber yard. We said that none of it really mattered as long as the Molotov Cocktails were able to be thrown as planned.

We need 3 Molotov Cocktails thrown through each of the west-side windows, along with 3-4 on the roof. We have the bottles, the fuel, as well as some Styrofoam that will be dissolved in the gas to thicken it and make it stick.

Tomorrow everyone will get together by 2:00pm to go over the plan. Everyone will have a job and everyone will know everyone else’s job in case someone goes down. I spent a decent amount of time tonight cleaning and lubricating my guns. I need to be able to depend on them.

This might be my last journal entry. Tomorrow night is it and if I don’t make it back, well, that’s REALLY it. I talked to Eric today about what might happen and made him promise me that he would take care of M, Aaron and Caleb for me. I radioed Ben and told him that “something” might happen – and if it did would M and the kids be able to stay with him. He said yes. I told Eric I needed him to get them there. Eric promised he would – and tried to laugh it off saying nothing would happen to me.

A lot has happened in the last couple months. This neighborhood has really come together and is surviving. We have teams working on water, food, scouting, educating our youth, caring for the sick. Everyone looks to me as a leader – but they can move forward without me.

To think I waited all those years to be with M and tonight might be the last I will ever have with her – better make it count.

Well – hope to be writing again Wednesday. If not………

– Jed


PS – M told me she had something important to tell me. What a tease. She said I will have to wait until after I get back to find out what it is. I wonder…..
