Cool Okeechobee Needs Our Help?

Okeechobee County, in South Central Florida,
is attempting to forestall a dangerous threat.

http://www.okeechobeeeoc.com/Annex%20Z.pdf

I think it behooves all public-spirited Stromtroopers to pitch in
and assist in this campaign of Civil Defense and Preparedness.

I will be busy until August, but I think we should schedule a
ride to Okeechobee. We can then assess the extent of the
threat and find out how we can participate in the merriment.

What do y'all think about this?

Keith

We may need to take a ride over there and check things out. I heard Uncle Larry's has a great Okeeburger!

Of course once the water gets back to 11 feet I will park the bike and go fishin'

Either way, if you go, let me know!

Hey, that was six weeks ago. I am old, and don't remember
what I had for breakfast. I'm sorry, but I do not recall.

A distant relative of mine seems to be in the county government,
so I sent him a not of encouragement, which went like this:

subject Well done!

Dear Mr. Faulkner,

I applaud your plan to help Okeechobee survive a Zombie Attack.
The entire idea of asking people with a traditional problem to think in an imaginative way is terrific.

You will get lots of mail, positive and negative.
Please do not waste your time replying to me.

The town of Port Dover Ontario somehow became THE PLACE TO RIDE TO for motorcyclists,
every Friday the thirteenth. Perhaps your efforts will cause a similar reputation to attach to
Okeechobee, and probably nothing but good will come of it, should that happen.

I hope to ride again to Okeechobee this summer, and I will try to bring some friends.
Don't worry, because we are rational folks, who just happen to ride motorcycles.
With mufflers. And generally with helmets.

Now where did I put that stuff I unwound from those mummies?
We will have to be properly dressed, um swaddled, well, you know.

Keith Falkner,
Sarasota FL

Right now, I am in Canada, and riding a small bike,
because I am too old to load and unload the Wee-Strom.

I'll be back at the start of August and schedule a ride then,
but to do that right, I need to visit Okeechobee first.

My guess is that someone took a standard emergency preparedness plan and inserted the words "zombie apocalypse" throughout as a joke.

Wouldn't a swamp be a good place for all the zombies to go? I mean...

I think I'll take a nap.
