It's been six weeks since Ol' Dirty Walnut (Floating Amphitheater #3) jumped the rails and landed us in this sidetrack universe. And I mean that literally--as near as we can figure it's a parallel universe to our own, just empty of people. Well, empty of all people except me and the 39 other souls who happened to be on the Walnut when we slipped through.

If you ask me, it's a dream come true, really. No parents, no teachers. and the whole world is ours for the taking. We've spread out in the town, mostly in little groups of the friends we've made, moving into the nicest houses we can find. Swimming pools, the nicest cars... I'm moved in with Jay and his crew--the older kids who aren't afraid to party a little. Still plenty of frozen pizzas and burritos at the Hypermart. It's like a dream come true.

Best of all -- NO HOMEWORK!!!!

I mean, it's like the whole world's a ghost town. But who liked all those people anyway?

The first sign something went wrong on Ol Dirty Walnut (Floating Amphitheater #3) is when we noticed the school grounds were empty. It's like everybody evacuated all at once. So we cruised over to town and it was empty too. Nobody anywhere. All the streets and parks and grocery stores -- empty.

And the streets weren't strewn with cars either which is weird because if there was some kind of rapture wouldn’t there be cars wrecking everywhere and airplanes crashing and power plants burning and stuff like that?

We started by raiding 7-11s’s and staying in the nicest rooms in the hotel. Lately we’ve been at one of the nice houses on the lake (with a pool) and partying. No internet but they have a blue ray and even a bunch of VHS tapes.

I wonder what we're going to do when winter comes.
