Where to Go In A Zombie Apocalypse

I recently came across an interesting article by Xavier Remington of Paranormal Investigators about where to go during a Zombie Apocalypse.  While I don't agree with every point, it definitely addresses some of the key considerations about assessing your situation, getting ready, and getting to a safer location.  Here is the article for your enjoyment:


If you read between the lines of this article, one thing becomes clear:  you have to be prepared! You have to have stockpiles of supplies, you have to be ready to shelter in place, you have to be ready to move when it's time to go, you have to be ready to scavenge supplies (particularly food, fuel, and water).

SEIZE the Zombies!

When Zombies are around, you have to be quiet.  To have any chance of avoiding zombies, you have to be very quiet.  Just remember SEIZE:


Silence 
Evades
Inquisitive 
Zombies 
Everywhere

It's just a simple mnemonic device. But, it is a device that may work for eluding home invaders and other threats.

When it's time to be quiet, it's time to be quiet.  There is no whispering.  There is no time for conversation.  Zombies are drawn to noise.  It's not a coincidence that zombies in The Walking Dead always show up when the characters are busy with other conversations.

How to Fight Zombies when You Hate Guns

You don't have to believe in guns to fight zombies.  You just have to improvise and be inventive.  This video shows how the Native Americans once made spears.



For example, you can use a baseball bats, you can use the big ass knife from your butcher block, or you can make a spear with a knife and duct tape.


There are all kinds of ways to improvise weapons.  However, testing improvised weapons can be a bitch.  If an improvised weapon fails, you need to have a secondary weapon and a backup plan.
