Say you woke up tomorrow to a world very much like Dawn of the Dead.



What supplies that are in your house would you take?

where would you try to hold out?

What car in your neighbor hood would you try to take?

Would you attempt to rescue other family members?

Above are some simple things to think about but feel free to expand on the situation. I will post my response shortly. Remember to be realistic and dont exaggerate what you could actually accomplish while on the run in the panic of the early breakout.

If I woke up to this chaos the first thing I would do would be to wake up my wife and grab the guns in the house. Currently I have around 50 rounds of ammo total. Three guns (Double barrel Shotgun, Benelli Shotgun, and .357 revolver) and about 35 shells and 15 bullets. After packing them into the car I would attach my machete to my side. I also have a full tang ninja sword replica. I would like to take my Jeep for the off-road capabilities but with it outside the garage its to much of a risk to take my wife. We would use her newer Chevy cruise. With a car packed with essentials like some food and a gallon of water, we would make off for my parents house about 20 miles away.

We would take back roads to avoid the heavy traffic and really populated areas. Once arriving, I would meet up with my dad, brother, and mom. There we could use his F250 truck for carrying supplies. My dad and I could cover the area while my brother loaded the truck with other guns (6 handguns, 5 shotguns, 4 hunting rifles, 2 AR15s, and a semi-auto AK47) and some survival tools and food.

From there we would head to the country. My uncle has a farm around 50 miles away with hardly nothing around for miles. We could set up camp there in the old airplane hangar and barn. We would park the big tractors in front of the gates. There are cows and a well on the property for food and water. Not to far from the farm is a river which would provide plenty of chances fro more water and wildlife for food. Silencers could be made for some weapons and used to keep Zombies at a difference. With the secluded location we would be pretty safe as long as a herd similar to The Walking Dead showed up. I would have tried to call other family members to meet us there but never know if the phones would be working well. If they showed up we could have a very well fortified living space of near 200 acres.

This is an overview of my thoughts but would be subject to change on circumstances.

Lock down my house and chill out as the zombies die because of nature.

This is for a scenario similar to Dawn of the Dead. You would have to have food or water eventually. After awhile the water would lose pressure and begin to stop working

I got enough food in my house to last at least a month. That's more than enough time.

Mh, ok.

If it could happen, I'd go the half mile to the nearest grocery store, fill my car with food, head back to my house, lock it up, and chill.

What supplies that are in your house would you take?

None(see next answer)

where would you try to hold out?

My apartment. In a zombie apocalypse it would be a pretty safe place to stay, it has only one entrance(it's on the third floor) that has a pretty solid door, easily guarded. And if we smash just one set of the stairs(the one between first and second floor), we would just have to clean out the 5 other apartments(2 on the third and the three on the second floor) and we'd have 2 entire floors to chill out on. Plenty of room to store supplies, other survivors, etc.

And there's two grocery stores within 5 minutes walk of here, for supplies. And a gunsmith about 20-30 minutes walk from here. It's also about 30 mins drive out of the city, so there wouldn't be too many zombies here :)

In a zombie apocalypse, if anyone of you could make it here, you'd be welcome. ^^


What car in your neighbor hood would you try to take?

None


Would you attempt to rescue other family members?

I live with my two brothers. Idk if that counts as a "yes" or a "no".

Step 1: Take some food, water, knives my step dad who can fight and my brother who will make a good human shield.
Step 2: climb onto roof and crawl along row of semi detached housing. Upon reaching the end of the line throw brother at zombies and run past while they eat him.
Step 3: run to nearby department store, put down steel shutters and wait for weather to kill zombies while living on produce and spending time reading store's comics.

I own 4 guns and have a about a hound rounds of ammo for each one. double barreled shotgun, mossburg .500 12 gauge shotgun, .40 Cal handgun with 5 extra clips and a. 22 revolver. We live in Florida so I have 2 boxes of hurricane supplies in the shed. I would grab those, the guns, maybe try to throw my 50 CC scooter in the truck of the car grab my gf and I'm sure she would want to take the cats. (Might have to eat them later.) My plan for any kind of apocalypse is to head back to my home town in West Virginia. Not very populated, everyone knows me and everyone is very well armed. People there already know how to farm and hunt so the lack of food production wouldn't be as bad. Getting to WV from FL might be a problem. The main roads would be packed and dangerous I think. I have a wv friend about an hour away that has a boat. Maybe I would make a deal with him for passage up river.Boat would be safer anyway. Zombies can't swim. Overall, living in Florida, I would say my chances are not good. Lol

Zombies can't swim, correct. However, they can walk through water. They don't need oxygen. So you better hope that the river is pretty damn deep.

Step 1.) Wake up to the sounds of my crazy-ass Tongan landscaping neighbors with machetes, pick-axes, hatchets and what have you having fun.

Step 2.) Grab my own weapon of choice(Cricket bat for the discerning, or the length of metal pipe I use as an impromptu practice blade.)

Step 3.) Have fun.

Step 4.) Walk to my local grocers(ten minutes away)

Step 5.) Rinse and repeat.

Possible Step?.) Watch it all on the news, as I live on an island and any chance of anything as cool as that happening is zilch. :(

It's going to be the cornucopia blood bath at the grocery stores and gas stations until that stuff runs out. When it does run out, you boys and girls are dead. Best remember the library, because electricity is gone eventually too. In the library is your sanctuary of knowledge. Learn to live in the wild, learn to farm your own food. Hole up in a library and burn Twilight books for warmth. But remember, fire will draw zombies to you. As for weapons, bullets eventually run out too. Better learn how to make and shoot a bow and arrows, swords and spears. Wouldn't suggest blunt weapons. Again this is all long term.

Agreed, going to grocery stores and gun stores is the worst idea. People are panicking, you have a better chance of a human killing you than a zombie. Fear the living.

Personally, if I could, I go to my mountain land on the Allegheny Mountains. Not that many people around, and the ones that are, would be a zombie's worst nightmare. Being a hunter and an out doors man, I know how to survive in the wild. I'd basically just wait out the zombie apocalypse for these reasons: http://www.cracked.c...il-quickly.html

any man would be able to kill a zombie but what about zombie's

they can out number you easy
however if you manage to escape a group of them but got bit then your ####ed

it would be awesome if zombie's just started spreading around, well it's better than earthquakes or floods if you think about it

zombie's would be easy to survive from

but finding a place safe enough would be difficult

unless you dig underground with alot of food and water enough to wait until the zombie's die of starvation

well it deppends on what type of zombie your talking about like the ones that run, the ones that can't die or the ones that can climb and the ones that are smart enough to use weapon's like a knife for example
