Escape from Home!

Just a quick note folks…to help sooth a couple ruffled feathers.

Some of you have expressed a little “displeasure” that I am not producing enough journal entries for Escape from Home. Ah, sorry. I do have a life…I am building our new retirement house (1000 sq feet of heaven), and actually spend some time with my wife (yes, she enjoys it…go figure).

But, at the same time…I hear ya!

To make folks happy I’ve written a whole lot of journal entries (over the last 8 months) stretching out quite a bit for Escape from Home. And I just spent 2 days doing some editing and expanding some some of the entries. But, I am not going to publish them all at the same time…that would be way too nice of me. And I can’t have that now can I?

I have already scheduled 20 days worth of journal entries and they are ready to go and will appear automatically no matter what I am doing at the time. A new entry will show up about every 3 days or so at 7am MST.

So there you have it…enjoy!

  1. Part #3 of Home Security was pretty gruesome but I couldn’t stop reading it.

    But it leaves me with a question perhaps you have already answered, what do we do with the dead bodies? In a larger sense, I wonder what to do with the dead in any future conflict or even natural caused situations.

    Last week, a person drove past and stopped looking at my house. When I visited with him as he sat in his vehicle he said he had lived in the house as a youth, but as he grew up, he found a job in a mortuary which he continued with for the past 35 years. I asked him ‘how many dead people at the same time would overwhelm all the mortuaries in Utah Valley?’ His answer was 5000. I can see a pandemic exceeding that number handily. What then, do we do?


  2. I have enjoyed your book installments from the start of book 1. I was into it about 10 installments when my wife wanted me to read it to her, which I did. We were somewhat saddened when the book ended, but were sure you would continue at a later date, which you have done. Each third day is eagerly awaited for the next day’s installment. This has helped immensely getting my wife on-board for parts of the prepping although she has been into gathering food and equipment from the start. Just recently she allowed me to purchase a Ruger 10/22 and, wonder of wonders, even shot it. I’m not expecting her to do more shooting but who knows what your next installment will cause her to do.

    While I enjoy your writing, and grin at the mistakes made and references to your AHTrimble web site, I see that you are not so much an author as a teacher/trainer. I can see you are bringing up issues that others will perhaps face and are presenting well thought out solutions that fit the scenario of your story.

    In book 1, when you left the Tanner’s, I expected you to return to them – just in the nick of time – to help them win a battle with the ‘outlaws’ from Deming and even free the Deming good people, which seems to be where you are headed. I do expect some future events where you will have do deal with (1) someone in your party who is wounded and unable to travel on their own, and (2) someone who surrenders and becomes a prisoner, probably an unrepentant prisoner. It will be interesting to see how you handle Bruce.

    I also pondered your group finding bicycles and traveling much faster for a time. However, I can see your imagination and knowledge are bringing up scenarios beyond my experience that are good for me, and others, to ponder.

    Also, on the side. From your other comments both on your web site and AVOW, I can see that you are very close to your wife and depend on her for advice and clarity. Your story is not presenting any of that for you or for the other married people in the group. No X rated, but perhaps some ‘pillow talk’. Nobody cares like a spouse.

    Thanks for doing this.

    y web site, is down – it got stale while we served missions. Hope to fix that soon.


    • Dang! You sure are observant 🙂 And that is a good thing.
      There is plenty coming in the book…you can trust me on that one. Some will be good, some not so much, some heartbreaking, and some…well, you will have to keep reading eh?
      As far as the Tanners….well, they get….and then the group….and then together…. 🙂
      Hey…that ought to make you keep reading!

      And waht’s this about “not so much an author”????????? I am crushed 😦
