    For this one I managed to complete it on the first day with the first 8 survivors. I was going for the Alpha and Omega achievement as well when I did this.

    First get Denyce

    Then go kill Ted and either save or kill Snowflake. If you save Snowflake then you will need to take him/her back to the safe house, make sure Denyce is far enough away before you go in. Snowflake will be placed there no matter how far away s/he is.

    On your way out of the safe house pick up LaShawndra in the Dark Bean and George in Casual Gals.

    After that go back to the Yucatan to get Lenny. He is by the service desk in the employees only room.(this also nets you the Powered Up achievement)

    ***During this time if you are going to be doing the cases to keep the survivors away from the safe room. Having them stay in the maintenance room is a good place to keep them. Press LT and Y to tell the survivors where to go, they will go that location and stay until you call them again.***

    Next follow the "Know when to Fold'em" mission to get Bill

    Next mission should be "Welcome to the Family" with Jack and Kenneth

    And then "Lush-ous Lady" with Kristin.

    The location of the clown car for me was outside the Wedding Chapel in the Silver Strip. Get them all in the car and the achievement is yours. I hope this works out for others, as I said it is how I got this achievement.

    napoearthIs there any reason to not get Lenny before getting LaShawndra and George?

    I have a save set up to get this, should anyone need it. Send me a message on XBL. I'll be keeping it pretty much indefinitely.

    **Edit**: You will need the DR2:OTR Support Pack DLC. It's free.

    The car in question is the ice cream truck, which will hold eight passengers. On the first day, it is located near the Slot Ranch Casino.

    This solution isn't hard, but it's a bit time-consuming. You may want to use a separate save slot for it, just in case something goes wrong.

    On the first day, make sure to have all cases cleared prior to 3 PM, when the "People Like Us" call comes in. This is a psychopath fight, so come prepared.

    After "People Like Us" is done, head up the Silver Strip towards the Yucatan Casino. You'll find Chad here, fighting some zombies. Clear them out, and then get Chad to join you.

    Take Chad down towards the Arena. During this time, you'll probably get the call for "Brains Over Brawn" (4 PM).

    Meet up with Doris in front of the arena. Get her to join up, and then set the guide arrow for "Brains Over Brawn," which is in the hotel. With Chad and Doris in tow, enter the hotel and follow the arrow. At some time during this procedure, you'll get the call for "Art Appreciation" (5 PM). Don't worry about it just yet.

    In the hotel, you'll find John, Curtis, Kevin, and Brian playing a game. Get them to join you; they'll join up quicker if Doris is nearby.

    At 6:30, you'll get a call from Stacey, asking you to come back to the safe house. There won't be much time, but you'll still make it since the safe house isn't far from the hotel. Make sure everyone is following you and head over there.

    Important: DO NOT take the survivors into the safe house with you. Have them wait somewhere nearby instead; direct them to stand well away from the vent before going inside. Make sure their health levels are up, since they'll start losing health when you go in the vent.

    Do what you have to do inside the safe house, and then quickly head back out through the vent. Heal up your survivors with food, and then set the guide arrow for "Art Appreciation," which is in the Palisades Mall, upstairs in the gallery.

    At 8 PM you'll get the "Once Bitten" call, most likely while you're en route to the Palisades. We'll be coming back to that one momentarily.

    For "Art Appreciation," get Randolph to join you by buying his painting. If any of your survivors are low on health, heal them up with some of the wine in the gallery, or next door in the booze store.

    If you don't have any Zombrex, buy some from the pawn shop near the art gallery.

    Set the guide arrow for "Once Bitten," and lead your group of seven towards the Silver Strip, where Jared is located in the Pub O' Gold. Jared won't join until you give him some Zombrex, so give him the supply you just bought. Jared moves slowly, so offer him your shoulder.

    With all eight survivors in place, head towards the Slot Ranch Casino and the ice cream truck. Press B to get in the driver's seat, and all the survivors will pile into the surprisingly roomy back seat. As soon as the last person gets in, the achievement will unlock.
