The Union Creek Journal

A Chronicle of Survival

Chronological Journal Entries

If you’re new to The Union Creek Journal, I highly recommend that you read the journal entries in chronological order.  Normally, the entries are listed newest first (reverse chronological order) to make it easier to keep up-to-date once you’re all caught up.  I recognize that not everyone has been with us since the beginning and the WordPress reverse chronological order makes it difficult to read from the first post to the last post.  So, I’ve created this page.  Below you will find links to each of The Journal’s entries in chronological order.  To read from oldest to newest, simply click a link for an entry, read the entry and then use your browser’s back button to return to this page and click the link for the next entry.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the chronicles. I was distressed that they ended, but am glad to see that there will be a sequel

    I will try to patiently wait for it.

    good story waiting for more

    Again I want to thank you for sharing this great story. Hope it does get published, as I feel it deserves to. I will be waiting for the second half for sure, and in the meantime will re-read the first half. Enjoy your summer! Thanks again for a great read.

    Great story been glued every time a new chapter was out. But now I’m like hanging, it can’t be over?

    • No it’s not over. I’m working on a sequel to finish it. Hope to have the sequel done by late fall or winter.

    • Yes, the sequel will be available for free in daily installments. Alternatively, you’ll be able to purchase the entire book from Amazon (Kindle), Barnes & Noble (Nook) or in PDF format … if you can’t wait for the daily entries.

    Brother Mud, you can’t leave us hangin’ like this!

  8. Brushogger on said:

    I’m really hoping this isnt the final chapter.

  9. Pitcher’s crew left the Chattahoochee in April (exact date undisclosed) in vehicles. They arrived at the FMC around May 9th.

  10. I’m a little confused on the timeline. Pitcher’s crew traveled 1000 miles on foot in just a few days? The last journal entry estimated weeks of travel tme.
