This is the timeline I have worked on thus far, having listened from chapter 1, through Chapter 12-3. I have quite a ways to go so I am hoping that the time between May 14th through July 4th becomes much more precise. Let me know if you find any holes.

Well here's a dilly of a pickle: The last 3 or so days is completely wrong. Kc Said the end of chapter 24 is August 2nd. So what is posted here is incorrect.
Colt .45 Found. We can still leave it out, but I think it is important
Anyway, as I approach the end of it all (Chapters 19 and 20 are really making this interesting) I found that my timeline is coming up a few days earlier than what is posted. But it is looking like things will line up perfectly! A good marking point is that I have Michael, Kelly, Pegs, Victor, Hope, and Tanya arriving back at the Tower on the morning of July 31st. I reeeeeally hope I didn't fudge up somewhere. I went through the passed 20 episodes from start to finish, stopping and relistening to certain episodes over and over again, and scrutinizing events mentioned, terms the characters use, taken in to account the window of vague terms like "a few days later", "some time after that", "12 minutes from 12 hours", etc... lol, it's been fun but I think I've got a solid timeline. I just hope chapters 21-27 don't kick me in the nuts.

Somewhere deep in the darkest corner of LA lies one man who survives. He is a shadow of his former self, living day to day, giving no concerns to anyone else, he's not the hero this city needs, but he is who this city deserves. He is Skittles.
I will listen much closer again, but I do not think we can link chapter 6 and chapter 7 as perfect next day. I think the fuel depot is much closer to outbreak than it is to the forth of July. I would rather have Lady a week or two on automatic food and water than a month and a half. Michael says new arrivals and generator delayed body disposal. That implies a small amount of time between them, otherwise we have limpet mine carnage outside the tower for more than a month.
Dislocating it to early in the story makes more sense. Lady. Bodies. CJs convoy ambush. Etc
Thus far, are there no dates stated past December 16th?
