He feels safe for the first time in three days, but all the same, brings some of his camping equipment and Joe's double-barrel shotgun into the hotel room to make sure he's covered. He beds down for the night after taping cardboard over the motel window and jamming a chair under the knob of the locked door.
The next morning, Bob wakes up with a jolt. It takes him a minute to recall what happened and where he is. He breathes a sigh of relief and lays back but is only there for a couple of minutes before he realizes how hungry he is. He also has to fill the Land Rover with gas.
He showers and dresses before heading out the door for breakfast. Breakfast? It's nearly noon! He slept almost 14 hours! He walks almost to the road before he realizes that something is wrong. He looks around and realizes that he sees some cars - one at the gas pumps, a couple at the restaurant, one at the motel - but he doesn't see any people, like he had the previous night. Just in case, he returns to the room and grabs the shotgun, before heading back towards the restaurant. Just as he reaches the street, he catches sight of the zeds - three coming between the restaurant and service station.
Turn 1: Bob activates, but the zeds don't. He advances 5 inches (sure to keep the zeds outside of 6") and fires both barrels of the shotgun, getting hits and Obviously Dead results on all three! No new zeds arrive from the gunfire.
Turn 2: Activation results in a tie - neither side activates, but Bob reloads the shotgun.
Turn 3: Zeds activate first and move towards the sound of the shotgun. Bob is right in the middle of two zombies coming at him from opposite sides.
Bob fires at - and hits for an OD - the zed on his left. He then rolls for a fast move and is able to move up to 16". He heads for the rear of the restaurant, expecting the zeds to follow.
Turn 4: Bob activates first and decides to take matters into his own hands. He runs back out to the road and fires the other barrel of the shotgun at the zed by the truck in the service station, for a hit and an OD, then uses the remainder of his movement to head back towards the back of the restaurant. The zombies move towards the sound of the gunfire.
Turn 5: No one activates.
Turn 6: Bob activates first again. He has to reload to he keep moving around the back of the restaurant, being sure to stay out of sight of the zombies, who continue to move towards where they last saw him.
Turn 7: Bob activates first again and heads for the corner of the delivery van parked in front of the restaurant.
From the cover of the van, he fires at the trail zombie, hitting it for an OD. The other zed crosses the front of the restaurant towards him.
Turn 8: Bob doesn't activate, but the zed does, and charges.
Bob passes the Being Charged Test and fires, hitting for an OD.
Just to be safe, Bob reloads and then begins a careful investigation of the buildings. He finds no one in the restaurant, but runs into a zed in the service station, which he dispatches with a fortunate OD from the shotgun. Searching the motel office and rooms, he finds a Male, Rep 3, Wuss, no weapons named Ted in one of the motel rooms. They pass the same number of dice on Talk the Talk and decide to part amiably as the Wuss doesn't want to join Bob.
Probably didn't believe what Bob told him about was happening. Bob was carrying a shotgun and had killed a whole bunch of what - to the Wuss - looked like living people. I mean, heck, would you believe him?

A while ago I was looking for paper buildings for this scenario, but decided it was more hassle than it was worth so I picked up some cheap HO buildings on sale from Hobbylinc and was able to build them over the last couple of weeks.
