thank you.

Thank you for your responses! I'm both encouraged to hear from others, but also want to be careful. I want so desperately to find answers, but sometimes the answers you get aren't the one's you were hoping for.

I am going to try and find some more equipment out here so I can communicate more effectively. Please be patient with me.

Good Question.

So I was thinking, if anyone is reading this, they might think, "how can you have electricity or internet"? Excellent question. Then again, if you're reading this, you have it too, so maybe you did that same thing we did and just got creative.

Last year, before everything fell apart, my dad went all "green" on us and bought these solar panels for our house. Mom thought they were ugly so he put them in the garage. Last winter was a rough one, so Dad got clever and used them to power our heater. Kansas can get pretty hot in the summer so we haven't used those panels for months.

Also, we can't use solar power for lights, because then everyone would see what we have and it would just be a matter of time before we got robbed (or worse) for them (yeah, it got that bad around Feb.) Then we got to thinking, maybe we can power this laptop? Bingo.

As it turns out, someone around Jericho has working WiFi and I managed to "borrow" it. We don't know who it is, or if they are "friendly neighbors" yet either, so I gotta be careful. Whoever I'm tapping isn't online very often, so I post whenever I discover they are.

Hope that answers any question.

First Post. Please Help.

Greetings from Jericho, KS.

I am starting this blog in an effort to reach anyone out there who made it through the last year. It's almost been a full year since our world was totally changed and no one still really knows what happened, although I hear lots of rumours. Some folks say some major cities were wiped off the map, but others say places like New York are fine. No one really knows for sure, which is why I want to know if anyone else is out there.

If you are out there, please let me know. Thanks.
