The season finale of The Walking Dead is tonight. I did not watch the first few seasons. I was put off by all the flesh-eating. But it grows on you. Now, I wouldn’t miss an episode.
So, how would you survive? Frankly, I would not want to survive, unless there is some hope of civilization surviving.
So, I am going on the assumption that the zombies would win a lot in the first few months, but that the forces of the living would rebound rather quickly. But preparation is necessary until civilization is restored
I would store food by putting rice, beans, etc. in empty water or soda bottles, and then storing the bottles in sealed non-biodegradable garbage bags and then keep the bags in metal or wooden boxes away from public viewing.
Buy the materials necessary to make your own cinder-lock biomass stove.
It’s always good to have seven or eight gallons of good drinking water stored away. But you have to have a good way to secure new drinking water. My suggestion. to keep the roof of your home clean and secure run-off rain water, then filter or boil it for human consumption.
I would keep a lot of bleach handy. Cause regular blood splatters are bad enough, but zombie blood splatter has got to be worse. And i am willing to bet that both types of blood splatters will carry disease.
A few words about guns. Who wins a gun fight, pacifist you or your hungry neighbor with a handgun? Not ony should YOU be armed, but your trusted family members and trusted neighbors should also be armed.
And be warned. Having a reliable supply of canned goods can get you marked as the hated rich should the shit his the fan. Dispose of your empties carefully.
Anyway, I could go on and on.
And this advice holds for a vampire apocalypse, a werewolf apocalypse, an Ebola apocalypse, an invaders from Mars apocalypse, a tsunami apocalypse and Earthquake apocalypse, whatever …
