Re: Over the Fence II

Andrew's took up a position beside the Humvee but keeps it casual as the negotiations went on. He keeps his eyes on the surroundings as the conversation with the civilians goes back and fourth.

Hawke leans out of the vehicle, and says loud enough so that the others can hear him

"Yeah, I found the septic tank yesterday.  That was a shitty surprise."

"And what an interesting smell you discovered in the process. At least we did'nt end up in it completely."

Thomas changes his position and continues to watch the conversation taking place. "At least we know that the area is not completely deserted. I wonder if they have recovered anything else or people."

"Yeah.  Firefights make a lot of noise, but these folks had to be close by to get organized for this, this quickly."

Kelsey Sarah Champlain:
Kelsey smiles and nods, still walking and trying not to look guarded at all.

"Indeed it is, we had to choose to leave it or risk some of the wounded.  Some sort of Yank mercenaries.  We did quite a number on them.  I'm former Van Doo, and my unit is stationed out of the local Canadian government in Vancouver.  We're starting to get to the fine folks in this area to see what we can do to help."

She gestures to them.

"We appreciate your help, what can we do for you in return?"


The man looked more relaxed, although his companions looked somewhat put out by the fact they weren't going to keep the Humvee. Because, hey, free Humvee!

"Oh, right. I'm Jaspal. We heard from some traders there was a federal government enclave in Vancouver. We've had some problem with bikers and bandits in Langley. We have a volunteer militia and an RCMP detachment but I'm sure the Mayor could use some help."

Langley was a farming community to the west, located between Aldergrove/Abbotsford and Surrey. Before the war is fairly large (as far as these things went) and a primary source of agriculture for Vancouver.

One of the men grins at Hawke. "No doubt, eh? Old house, must have been before they put the Hydro lines in."

In BC, electricity via hydroelectric power and water were handled by the same utility. "Hydro" was therefore synonymous with both power and water.

Hawke grinned back at the guy who spoke.

"Yeah.  I had a friend who's a fireman, back home.  She had the joy of going after a 70-something year old lady who stepped out her door, then onto the top of her septic tank.  Tank top cracked, and she wound in deep shite."



[True story, happened to my GF, when she was a fireman in NJ]

Jaspal looked back at Hawke and Kel, then at the Humvee.

"Right, uh, so you want us to pull this out for you?"

He looked like he hoped they weren't in trouble. Although, not being disarmed seemed like a good sign.

Kelsey nods and smiles to the nice man.

"If it's not too much trouble.  Oops, that's my boss, we are detached to the RCMP."  She shrugs.

She keys her mike.  "Roger Knight, you are lima charlie.  This is Bishop.  We have charlies, civilians, on site.  I am negotiating them helping us get the poo baby out of the septic tank."

Re: Over the Fence II
Very well. Remind the civilians about the  Government program for reconstruction. See if you can get more INTEL on the Hell's Angels clubhouse.

Re: Over the Fence II
Seeing they didn't have much of a choice, the men started hooking up the Humvee for extraction. This required bringing the tow truck around to the rear of the house, as it would need to be winched out backwards.

The men looked okay with the decision, or at least both resigned with not getting their hands of a free Humvee but glad they didn't seem to be getting busted.

Re: Over the Fence II

Seeing as things seemed to be progressing well with the humvee extraction and there seemed to be no threat from the civilians, Thomas turned his attention to the countryside around the vehicles. He took out his binoculars and used them sparingly as he scanned the surrounds for anything that looked out of the ordinary.

He started with the locations that had been part of the fire-fights the previous day. He tried to astatine if scavengers had been at work and he also tried to pick out the other vehicles they had left.

Kelsey goes over the Government program for reconstruction, detailing where's and how's and how to connect.

"So, the RCMP you guys have, your locals from before the war?"

In reply to Kelsey Sarah Champlain (msg # 91):

One of the men not helping with the Humvee answered, "a couple are from the local Langley RCMP detachment, the rest are from the Surrey and Burnaby RCMP detachments.

"Abbotsford has its own local police. We think they might be working with the bikers."


The bodies looked to be where they dragged them, in the bullet-riddled remains of the corner store. All that remained in the road were bloodstains and drag marks. The vehicles that were on fire seemed to have burned themselves out, and the fire hadn't spread in the woods due to it being wet.

There was an abandoned station wagon parked down the road that seemed to be gone now. Otherwise, the dropped weapons had been gathered up and there was little else for scavengers to pick up.

He puts the binoculars away and continues to provide security for the parked vehicles. "I can't see anything out of the ordinary since we were last here."

"Good, I hope they have been in contact with the local headquarters.  If they have not please ask them to do so.  You guys are some of the last outlying areas not receiving aid.  Need to fix that pronto."

She nods, serious faced with them talking about the local police.

"Police, huh?  What can you tell me about Abbotsford?  Anything you have seen or heard that is reliable will help.  We'd rather work friendly with them, but we have had problems with the Hells Angels in other places, and they don't tend to survive well against a properly trained and organized military force.  Too much bravado, not enough following orders."

The man, Jase, looked impressed. "You fought the Angels? Yeah, I guess they're no match for real soldiers.

"Nah, I don't think the local Mounties in Langley have been in contact with HQ. I guess their radios didn't work too good after the EMPs or whatever. Abbotsford police is an independent police force. They were made up of former RCMP before the war, I don't know about now. I've been to "Abby" and they seem to not be struggling. It's not like bikers are riding down main street. Still, there's been runours the Hells have gotten their hooks into the local government.

"One thing, we've been seeing Yank patrols around. They haven't been trouble, and seem to be patrolling for bandits, but hey, stay on your side of the fuckin' border!"

"The angels came into power because of the vacuum of government.  They lack the real discipline and training to hold it.  We have proven that several times.  They do get some ex soldiers, and think that because of that they are a match for us.  They are wrong."

She smiles and shrugs, scratches a few things on a piece of paper and turns to the HMMWV they came in on.

"Guys, if the one in the septic is working fine, we still need the other?"

"Uh huh. After kicking Soviet ass, I guess some bikers aren't gonna be a problem. Ah, so, what about all those dead guys in the market?" He looked at where the casualties from the day before had been dragged, then back at Kel.

"Not our mission this moment.  Just came to pick up some equipment we left behind.  It may be my pay grade later.  Tell you what folks, pull her out and let me take a peek and I will give my boss a call.  Might be able to not send you home empty handed."


<red>OOC:  If I remember, the one in the drink is up armored some, and that is why we want it back.  The one we came back in is just a soft sider?

The men looked hopeful at this.

In fact, they had come in a captured soft-sider, but the one in the septic tank had some added steel plating and a cupola, making it more valuable but heavier and more unstable.

While waiting on Taras' answer, Kelsey became aware that there was incoming traffic from HQ on the long-range net.

Re: Over the Fence II
Using the tow truck (which had faded BCAA decals) the men pulled the Humvee out.

Squattind down to look at the suspension and tires, Jace said, "Ok, not too shabby. Looks like she should drive with no problem. That'll be Eighty bucks for the tow, plus GST and PST."
