Derived from the stories of FrankSpeaks in SOL
A story loosely based upon the "Frank's Post Apoc" Universe from SOL. Lots of radio, a family group and how they handle the depopulation (to a great extent) of the world in west Georgia, USA. This was originally posted for me by Frank Speaks but I feel confident enough to go forward here (not comfortable with some of SOL). Please enjoy. RG
I have gone over the story and am reposting it to correct errors and bring some issues into line with the rest of the stories. :-)
