People travel several miles outside the city to work at this big saw factory that is managed by Horzine. If you ask me I would say there is more going on out there than just your typical deforestation, Rick comes back every night smelling vile and sometimes his work year is a little corroded. Everyone was out there working when the zed outbreak happened, and word got to everyone. Those who stayed, died. Those who fled... also probably died. Either or the factory is still up and running. So either this entire time it has been running off backup power, or someone is keeping it up and running. Might need to go and take a look, and clear out anything that has a very shootable face.

Nowadays as zeds roam the world and all military forces either was destroyed or left it's posts, Silo Seven was abandoned and left for nothing but a ghost of the past. Until few days ago when Horzine decided to move their mobile base carrying important research and supplies into the abandoned military base.
