HOPING EVERY DAY TO HEAR FROM YOU, RADIOGIRL. THE BUNKER I’M BUILDING FOR YOU IS ALMOST READY. YOU CAN GO THERE, OR IF YOU REALLY WANT TO BE SAFE YOU CAN ALWAYS COME HOME. I’LL COME AND GET YOU IF YOU JUST GIVE ME THE WORD. I KNOW YOU LIKE TO BE INDEPEDENT AND NOT LET YOUR OLD DAD FIX THIGNS FOR YOU. AND I RESEPCT THAT. BUT IF YOU’RE GOING TO COME DOWN, AT LEAST LET ME TELL YOU A FEW THINGS.

WHEREVER YOU ARE, WHATEVER YOU’RE DOING, YOU SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE AN ESCAPE PLAN THAT YOU CAN PUT INTO ACTION AT A MOMENT’S NOTICE. DO YOU HAVE A BUG-OUT BAG? YOU REALLY NEED TO PUT ONE TOGETHER BEFORE YOU TAKE OFF. BAD THINGS CAN HAPPEN WHEREVER YOU ARE, AND YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED FOR ANYTHING. HERE’S A GOOD GUIDE FOR PUTTING A BUG-OUT BAG TOGETHER:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHEN YOU’RE READY TO GO, I’M SURE YOU CAN FIND A WAY TO GET A HOLD OF YOUR MOM’S CAR KEYS. BUT IF FOR SOME REASON YOU CAN’T, HERE’S SOME GOOD ADVICE ON HOW TO GET IT RUNNING WITHOUT THEM. BUT ONLY USE THIS IF YOU HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

IF FOR SOME REASON YOU CAN’T GET YOUR MOM’S CAR, THEN YOU CAN ALWAYS TAKE THE TRAIN. AMTRAK’S GOT A ROUTE, THE CITY OF NEW ORLEANS, THAT GOES FROM CHICAGO TO LOUISIANA. THERE’S A TRAIN EVERY DAY AT 8PM THAT WILL GET YOU TO NEW ORLEANS THE NEXT AFTERNOON. TELL ME WHAT DAY AND I’LL BE WAITING TO PICK YOU UP.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHILE YOU’RE ON YOUR WAY, STAY AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS AT ALL TIMES. IT COULD COME FROM ANYWHERE. IF YOU SEE A BIG WHITE FLASH IN THE SKY, IT’S LIKELY A NUCLEAR ATTACK – GET OFF THE HIGHWAY AND GET TO A RURAL, UNPOULATED AREA AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

IF IT’S A CHEMICAL OR BIOLOGICAL ATTACK, STAY IN YOUR CAR AND STAY AWAY FROM PEOPLE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. THERE WILL BE NO SAFTEY IN NUMBERS. YOU CAN PICK UP A GAS MASK FROM ANY SURPLUS STORE, SO MAKE SURE YOU GET ONE FOR YOUR BUG-OUT BAG. HERE’S SOME MORE GOOD INFO FOR YOU TO REVIEW:

I DON’T THINK WE HAVE A LOT OF TIME. THINGS ARE HEATING UP.

IT’S ALL CONNECTED THE NORTH KOREA ANGLE IS BS— WE SHOULD BE FOCUSING ON THE SOVIETS.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

HERE ARE A COUPLE OF SITES I CHECK REGULARLY FOR IRREGULAR PATTERNS OR HIDDEN COORDINATION. WE MANY NOT SEE ANYTHING HERE, BUT IT DOESN’T HURT TO CHECK THE MORE INFO WE GATHER THE MORE PREPARED WE CAN BE.

SPACE WEATHER CONDITIONS: http://www.swpc.noaa.gov
INTERACTIVE SATELITTE TRACKING: http://science.nasa.gov/iSat/?group=SMD

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

COME AS QUICKLY AS YOU CAN, BUT DON’T TAKE A PLANE. IF SOMETHING HAPPENS WHILE YOU’RE ON A PLANE, THEN THERE’S NO WHERE FOR YOU TO ESCAPE TO.

LOVE,

DAD

MEGAN THIS IS WHY I SAY YOU SHOULD ALWAYS BE AWARE OF WHATS HAPPENING AROUND YOU. LOOK:

SO FORGET THE TRAIN. YOU’RE BETTER OFF DRIVING ANYWAY. THAT WAY YOU ALWAYS HAVE AN ESCAPE ROUTE AND CAN’T GET BACKED INTO A CORNER. IT’S ALWAYS BETTER TO BE IN CONTROL OF YOUR OWN MOVEMENTS.

BUT YOU’RE GOING TO NEED TO GET YOUR HANDS ON A CAR. YOUR MOM’S OR SOMEONE ELSE’S.

AND YOU’RE GOING TO NEED TO HURRY.

LOVE,

DAD

LIFE INSIDE A BUNKER IS GOING TO BE A CHALLENGE. ESPECIALLY SINCE WE MAY HAVE TO STAY DOWN THERE FOR A FEW YEARS. IT’S IMPORTANT TO BE PREPARED – NOT JUST WITH SUPPLIES AND GEAR, BUT WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT TO DO ONCE YOU’RE DOWN THERE. IT’S GOING TO BE A DIFFERENT KIND OF LIVING,WITH NO ROOM FOR MISTAKES.

I MADE SOMETHING TO HELP YOU GET READY. IT MAY JUST FEEL LIKE A LITTLE GAME, BUT IT CONTAINS A LOT OF IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO HELP YOU LEARN WHAT IT’LL TAKE TO SURVIVE.

I HOPE YOU LEARN QUICKLY FROM IT.

RADIOGIRL, YOU’RE THERE! I CAN SEE THAT YOU’RE USING THE SIMULATOR. I WAS BEGINNING TO WORRY THAT YOU REALLY HADN’T SEEN ANY OF MY MESSAGES. BUT NOW THAT I KNOW YOU’RE LISTENING, I’M NOT GOING TO REST UNTIL I KNOW YOU’RE PREPARED.

I KNOW THAT YOU’RE SEEING SOME WEIRD RESULTS IN THE SIMULATOR. I MAY HAVE TO TAKE IT OFFLINE IF I CAN’T FIX IT, BUT I HOPE IT DOESN’T COME TO THAT. THERE’S NO TIME TO WASTE, AND THE SIMULATOR IS GOING TO TEACH YOU SOMETHING REALLY IMPORTANT.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

I CAN SEE YOU’RE STILL USING THE SIM, MEGAN, AND I KNOW YOU CAN DO BETTER. I’VE GONE THROUGH AND MADE SOME CHANGES BASED ON MY LATEST FINDINGS. FOR INSTANCE, BEING ON YOUR OWN DOWN THERE WON’T BE SO EASY IN REALITY. SO NOW IT’S NOT SO EASY IN THE SIM EITHER. IT’S NOW A BETTER TEST OF YOUR PREPARATION APPROACH, AND SHOULD MAKE YOU THINK TWICE ABOUT TRYING TO GO IT ALONE. WE’RE LOOKING AT 2 YEARS AT MINIMUM. AND IT’LL PROBABLY EVEN LONGER.

ALONG THOSE LINES, A TIP – MORALE MAY SEEM TO BE LESS IMPORTANT THAN HARD SUPPLIES. BUT IT’S NOT. TRUST ME, I KNOW.

KEEP TRYING AND DON’T LET ME DOWN.

LOVE,

DAD

NOW YOU’RE LEARNING HOW HARD IT IS TO GET BY WITH JUST YOURSELF TO RELY ON. WHICH IS WHY I STILL WANT YOU TO COME DOWN HERE, SO WE CAN SURVIVE TOGETHER.

I’VE CHANGED THE SIM AGAIN. THIS TIME I’VE ADDED SOMETHING. YOU’LL HAVE MORE THAN JUST BASIC SUPPLIES DOWN THERE. YOU’LL ALSO HAVE A LIBRARY OF INFORMATION – BOOKS, GUIDES, AND RESOURCES ON HOW THINGS WORK. CHEMISTRY, ENGINEERING, CONSTRUCTION. AND WITH ALL THE TIME YOU’LL HAVE TO FILL, I REALIZED THAT THE SIM WASN’T GIVING YOU A CHANCE TO FIGURE OUT WAYS TO IMPROVE.

SO NOW, YOU’LL FIND A NEW JOB CALLED “RESEARCH” THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO FIGURE OUT WAYS TO EXTEND YOUR SUPPLIES.

I KNOW YOU’RE SMART, RADIOGIRL. BEING SMART IS GOING TO BE A KEY TO SURVIVING.

LOVE,

DAD

MEGAN. I’M IMPRESSED. YOU’VE MANAGED TO MAKE IT LONGER THAN I HAVE. NOW I JUST HOPE YOU'LL FIND A WAY FOR US TO SURVIVE TO THE VERY END TOGETHER.

MEGAN, MAYBE I HAVE BEEN WRONG ABOUT A LOT OF THINGS. BUT NO MATTER WHAT DENISE SAYS, I’M NOT WRONG ABOUT WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN DECIPHER WHAT N SENT. IF YOU CAN YOU’LL SEE. I’M NOT WRONG ABOUT THIS.

I DON’T KNOW, MAYBE I SHOULDN’T GO DOWN INTO THE BUNKER WHEN THE ATTACK COMES. MAYBE I SHOULD JUST LET IT HAPPEN? IF I CAN’T KEEP YOU SAFE, THEN WHAT’S THE POINT OF IT ALL ANYWAY?

I HOPE YOU CAN FORGIVE ME. I KNOW THAT MAYBE I WASN’T ALWAYS THE BEST FATHER AND HUSBAND I COULD HAVE BEEN. I MADE MISTAKES. I HURT PEOPLE THAT I DIDN’T INTEND TO HURT. BUT EVERYTHING I DID WAS FOR YOU. TO KEEP YOU SAFE. TO KEEP YOU CLOSE. I DID THE BEST I KNEW HOW TO DO. I HOPE THAT IT WAS ENOUGH. I’LL NEVER STOP BELIEVING IN YOU. I’LL NEVER STOP BELIEVING THAT ONE DAY YOU’LL COME BACK TO ME.

YOU MAY NEVER SEE THIS. YOU MAY NEVER HAVE SEEN ANY OF IT. BUT IF THERE’S ANY CHANCE YOU’RE READING THIS, PLEASE ANSWER ME. I NEED TO HEAR YOUR VOICE, EVEN IF IT’S ONLY ONCE. PLEASE PICK UP YOUR PHONE.

I’LL NEVER LET YOU GO, RADIOGIRL.

LOVE,

DAD
