A YEAR UNDERFOOT – entry #123

A Year Underfoot


January 5th, 2034

I split my time between the air base and the radio. There’s not much happening on either end. Though activity at the base has picked up a bit, – still no returning troopers, but the cargo ships are running as per usual and even the royal shuttle has made an appearance.

I have to say I’m surprised at the light and loose security protecting the base. It was only a few days ago that hundreds of heavily armed troops stood guard, but now when I look out over the alien installation only a handful of troopers patrol the perimeter, and the outbuildings and tarmac are scarcely guarded at all.

Inviting, to say the least.

As far as the radio goes, there s still some chatter out there, news from the Central Coast area and points north, but there isn’t anything coming out of the Sierras. That’s to be expected. The operators have dug in deep and I don’t suppose we ll know the true impact of the raids for quite some time.
