Life in the swamps and bayous of Louisiana can be difficult, and during the apocalypse it is nearly uninhabitable. Huge predators, pumas and alligators bloated on the flesh of people and zombies, stalk the waterways looking to gorge themselves even more. The twisting, turning waterways are difficult to navigate with a GPS, making them extremely difficult to follow with
just a map and compass, or even nothing at all. The rotting dead and rampant mosquitoes spread filth and pestilence around, making uncurable diseases commonplace.
But with all of nature against them, some hardy fellows still choose to live in the swamp. Maybe it's the abundant water supply or because roving gangs and criminals don't dare go so far off the beaten path. Whatever it may be, some survivors have set up camps and civilizations deep in the heart of the swamp, where they live in solitude while the rest of the world squabbles, loots and kills.
Today we join Jean-Luc, a Frenchman with a knack for survival and David, a tough fellow and Jean's good friend. Because the waterways are perfect for zombies to creep into the civilized area, these men work daily to rid the streams and tributaries of the walking (and sometimes swimming) dead. Jean wields his trusty harpoon while Dave steers the raft through the tangled maze of roots and water.
Check out the swamp tree with hanging vines. It came out looking pretty cool.
The grey flag is a marker used by scouting parties to find their way back to camp. If someone gets lost in the swamp, they only need to follow the flags to safely return to their civilaztion.
Nice little scene. Good tree. I like the hanging down seaweed. I've got to use that, and the chain made me think that those brown chains could be mixed in with plants like brown vines or small branches. see ya around. garth
