The Raiders chased us for almost two hours before my daughter Darlene spotted the treehouse. We scrambled up the rope ladder, praying they wouldn't follow. We crouched low and waited until the Raiders passed beneath. That's when we opened fire.
Our elevated position gave us a huge advantage, and we took them down in seconds. I don't think they even knew where the shots were coming from. It was at that moment we knew that our Free States group had found a new home.

While the thought of living in a makeshift tree fort seemed clever, we didn't realize the huge amount of work we'd have ahead of us.
Caroline volunteered to hike down to Gavin Mccullough's cabin to see if his group wanted to join up. Before the war, Gavin was a master carpenter, so he'd have the skills and tools to get the job done.
Fortunately for us, his group agreed to give us a hand. With their help, and Gavin's knowhow, we had a solid platform built within a day. We were exhausted, but Gavin promised that the best was yet to come.

It's been a little over a month and our dream of a tree fort has turned into more of a treehouse village.
Gavin designed a way to use other nearby trees to build a series of interconnected platforms. It was pretty damn clever - everyone would have their own platform with living quarters and a roof over their heads. We would be close to each other, but each group would still have some privacy.
Finding that child's treehouse was turning out to be the luckiest thing that ever happened to us.

I woke to gunshots and Gavin yelling that we were under attack by Raiders. We ran to the windows and returned fire.
We were able to run the Raiders off, but the damage was done. We had lost Darlene. It was clear that our treehouse village wasn't enough to keep everyone safe. The Raiders would keep coming, and then slowly, we'd keep dying.
We decided to give up our home and move on, to look for somewhere safer. I'm going to leave a few traps behind as a parting gift, just in case the Raiders return to finish the job. A little payback for what they did to my sweet Darlene.
