Hmm... well, the plot just picked up significantly

Fix your date for the last entry January 2105?

It's 2015

I've read quite a few of those. His style must have snuck itself in.

Just read this last night. Decent story, mostly entertaining. It might just be me but I'd like to hear more about the day to day stuff to.
Keep it up.

So how close to reality is the set up for you? Sounds pretty ideal, even for an old man

I'm making the wife read it. She approves. And she also wonders if we have enough ammo in stock. Can you put something in there about not having enough ammo for me. I'm trying to convince her that I need a new gun and a few cans of 1,080rd ammo.

I don't know if it's "in there" anywhere, but it occurs to me that SALT can become a very valuable commodity in these situations.

What kind of gun do you need? Did the 74 show up under the tree?

Today's new entry is titled "Muerte de Marta": http://unioncreekjournal.wordpress.c...erte-de-marta/

Enjoy!

Be prepared ... buy propane. Might want to buy a few conversion kits for your vehicles too.

Just read the update:

"For those who like their Facey-spaces and Twitter-books Ö Iíll soon be launching a Facebook page for The Union Creek Journal. Youíll be able to interact with other fans, share comments and content with other Facebook members and, best of all, get access to exclusive entries only available on the Facebook site."

Even that offer will not get me to make a facebook page. That blows.

I only flex on price for NEEDS. This is a want. I set my price and that was it. I have walked away on a $38,000 vehicle over $100. The guy still has the gun. And so far the highest open offer as of last night was $350. He has 600 rds of ammo he thinks is worth a ton that just isn't. He just over paid for it.

Just because Mudinyeri has helped me convince the wife I need an EBG doesn't mean I'm going to over pay for it. The world is not going to end for at least another year.

good stuff. I too would like to see more of the day to day stuff.

I will say that Jake's character is a bit over the top. I understand the guy is an a-hole, but even an a-hole wouldn't bite the hand that feeds him, especially in a life or death situation. JMHO
