Are you ready for the Zombie Hunt?

I'll be leading a group on a run starting at 8pm into the hills north of the triad to hunt zombies!

Here is a link to the Garmin GPX file. (http://tarheelminis.org/garmin/zombie_hunt.gpx)

Each of the letters on the route (except for start and end) are haunted sites, so there is a story to go with each. Should help since some of these are well worn THMMC roads (night will be a new element as well). Alas, I could find no locations where zombies had been sighted.

There might be about 100 yards of packed gravel road at Davis Chapel Church. Looked like the church was right about where the pavement ends. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure all the roads are paved.

The Route starts at the shopping center where the Hardee's and Subway are located at the Hwy 65 exit. Route ends at Dairi-O. Their web site says they close at 11:00 on Saturdays. Mapsource says the route is 1 hr 45 minutes, so we'll be cutting it close if we wanted to get there before they close.

Searching for the walking dead? Sounds scary, but fun!

Seems cool! Plan to be there. Don't just look for zombies, watch for deer.

October 24th, 2011, 04:09 PM
Hoping to make it - if I'm not already worn out from the rest of the events I have scheduled for that day.

October 24th, 2011, 11:03 PM
I will be there!!

Hmm, not sure what to make of this. Apparently in response to an "incident" at the Stokes County morgue, the vehicle below was spotted in the area north of Winston-Salem:


In case something breaks out before Saturday night, if your Zombie Apocalypse survival plan includes getting out of the city, be sure to use your MINI. Likely many others will be doing the same thing and the outbound roads will turn into a giant parking lot. But, our MINIs are small and nimble, so we should have an advantage.

I am going to try and make it. I should be able to get there in time.

October 29th, 2011, 02:37 PM
I'm not going to make it tonight. Niki comes back from Paris tonight.

Jeff, can you lead this or is it just easier to cancel it?

October 29th, 2011, 03:31 PM
I'm still planning to be there, so I can lead it.

October 29th, 2011, 03:49 PM
I'm not going to be able to make it tonight. Everything has gone longer today than planned and I won't make it in time.

October 29th, 2011, 04:06 PM
I'll be there.

October 29th, 2011, 04:57 PM
Call jeff we're counting on you....:+)

October 29th, 2011, 04:58 PM
Stupid autocorrect come on jeff.....lol help us out we r lost sheep needing a Shepherd

October 29th, 2011, 11:14 PM
Thanks Jeff!! Had a great time!!

October 30th, 2011, 07:57 AM
Ditto Jeff Thanks for the leadership!

October 30th, 2011, 08:41 AM
Thanks for coming out everyone. It was a fun ride. According to my field reports, the area has been cleared of any zombies and is once again safe for all MINI travel!

I'll never ride by those haunted places again without thinking about the Zombie Hunt. Thanks Jeff for leading. Of course, it would be nice to see them in the daylight. Since I downloaded the route, maybe another ride is in order sometime when I need to chill.
