Despite the controversy, many of us believe that one day a zombie apocalypse will be among us. Well, to help those people, I’m here to let you know just what you’ll need when that time comes.
Above all else, having a plan is the most important thing. When the zombie apocalypse is upon us, there will be people who have a plan laid out before them. You need to be one of those people.
It would help if you already had food stocked up, but if not then know the best place to go. You want somewhere that will have sufficient food without too many zombies or convicts. But there are sure to be a few no matter where you go, so it’s important that you have access to weapons. Believe it or not, a gun is not the best option. They run out of ammo and they are not usually silent. A hatchet or similar weapon would be much better. Whatever you do, make sure you plan it out beforehand, this way, you’ll have most of the details worked out.
Note: backup plans are every bit as important (ex. What to do if a hatchet won’t pierce the skull)
A Safe Haven
This one is a biggie. In a zombie apocalypse, you’re going to need a place to stay. You can’t rest when you aren’t sure your base will hold up during the night. Aim your sights for higher ground. It would also be of use to live somewhere without a lot of trees or buildings so you can see incoming zombies.
If you can acquire somewhere with an open range with a full view on all sides, a tall, durable fence, clear it of zombies, and you’ll be set. As long as it’s within driving distance of resources then you’re good. But before you stay, search the building and perimeter for any zombie that may be lurking about.
To Stay Healthy
Imagine all you do all day is eat fast food burgers and sit on the couch. All of a sudden someone drops you in the middle of the ocean and tells you land is only two miles away. How likely is it that you’ll survive? Yeah…not.
In order to have your best chance of surviving a zombie apocalypse, you’ll need to stay healthy and in shape. After it hits, food options are limited so you don’t have much of a choice. So that work needs to be done before the apocalypse hits. However, exercise is different. You don’t need equipment to get fit.
No matter where you are, you can do a daily routine. Jumping jacks, pull-ups, push-ups, squats, lunges, and more. It’s pretty much like being in prison. The strong survive.
To Choose Your Allies Wisely
This is only applicable if you have no family that survived. If you did, you’ll need to help them train for the zombie apocalypse too. Help them live by your standards and follow these rules as well.
If you’re alone, then you have a choice. Don’t trust anyone, because when an apocalypse hits, we will see the darkest side of humankind. Don’t let the darkness in, but still, don’t expect that no one else fight it off. When choosing allies (if given a choice) you need to take two things into account.
Why? Because, their skills, abilities, and knowledge will help them survive. Their heart will help you survive. There’s two ways for humans to kill you in a zombie apocalypse. Stupidity and betrayal, choose your poison.
This is important and it is much easier to accomplish before the world ends. Let’s start with general knowledge, this can be obtained through watching a variety of zombie movies and TV shows. Such as The Walking Dead and Zombieland. Video games are also a bonus. When the really disaster strikes things will be different, but having a place to start will keep the shock from overtaking you. If you don’t have this knowledge you may not know that 99% of the time, a head shot is required to kill a zombie.
Along with general zombie knowledge, having a basic gun knowledge, first aid skills, CPR, hunting, tracking, explosives etc. will most definitely be an asset in a zombie apocalypse.
