Title: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: BrainBlow on April 02, 2010, 01:53:17 pm
I don't understand why we didn't have this thread already.
It should be obligatory.

Please write a bit more than the classical "should do's". Explain a bit in debt, even add what you will do if "that and that" part of your plan goes wrong.
Season of the year, different locations, type of outbreak, available gear, etc.
I will post my plans a bit later.

I'd grap as much weaons and armor as I could possibly find and I'd try to reach my student society.
There's lots of food there and the doors are heavy so the sound of loud music doesn't reach the neighbours. This means that the building his hard to get into when you're not allowed.
Also there are several rooms that can be easily defenden including a upper floor with a narrow stairs leading toward it. Those stairs could be easily blocked so no zombie could climb them.
Weak point in the plan is that I'd need to cross the citycentre to reach this building :(
If I can;t reach it I'll try to head towards a group of student-apartments just outside the city. They're situated in a field and you can see any approaching hostiles from several hundred meters away. Also I have several friends living there so I guess I'd have a place to stay.
If I fail to reach that I guess I'd be dead already.

A lot of discussion goes on among casual zombie enthusiasts about the benefits of silent avoidant strategies versus loud direct strategies.

I think it's clear that if your goal is to get from one area to another, being avoidant and low-key is a good strategy. However, if elimination is your goal, loud and direct is best.

Now, you distinctly asked for something more than "oughts" and "shoulds", but my zombie plan isn't inflexible. If all the graveyards in the world suddenly empty, and satanic zombies from Hell walk the Earth all over, my plan changes from what I might do if there's a very localized viral outbreak.

I could say something like "my friends and I suit up, and we travel from where I am now to Safe Zone X", but that only works if "Safe Zone X" doesn't have any zombies, and it's less well suited to a worldwide outbreak.

So there's one of two ways to respond to this question. I can list every conceivable scenario, which includes a whole host of zombie variations, situations, locations, environments, strategies and would be quite comprehensive, or you can specify things like environment, location, and zombie type if you don't feel like reading my rambling for twenty paragraphs.  ;) I'll let you choose.  ;D

It's sort of similar to asking "what would you do in a war?"
I am naturally gonna ask "what kind of war?"  ;D
 
Cheers.

Which is the reason I said "type of outbreak".
You could probably just go along with the classical zombie(without the "braaaaaains" part)

We did have one before the crash, it just hadn't been revived until now.

Can't be arsed to write out my full plan so I'll keep it brief. Gather friends, arm up, gather supplies, sod off to the local castle.

It was my revival of the thread before that got stickied and kept around. Was a good thread...


Uh for me, the short of the long is it's late here so I am tired so grab some supplies, my group of friends (my family would already be dead, 3/6ths work in the local medical facilities, so yeah, and then get up to my cottage 2 hours from here and try to survive.

Hole up at home for at least three days, but probably more. Until it gets quieter outdoors. I don't want to be in the middle of panicked people chased by zombies that can't always be told from one another, cars swerving onto the sidewalk to avoid the previous car that crashed in the street, cops that may or may not be stresses out of their mind, rednecks who decided to shoot every zombie despite not having the eyesight to tell them from humans, etc. The best way to avoid chaos is to stay away from it.

When it looks calm, get outside and figure out the situation. If enough people stayed out of danger like me, maybe the authorities managed to contain the zombies - it's only in the movies that they always fail, not to make the movie boring - but depending on the kind of zombies they may have been subdued. If that's the case, I have to see what kind of outbreak we have, how many zombies, how many survivors, how likely are we going to be competing for resources, etc. It involves exposing myself but it's necessary.
If they're ragers, I go back home and hang myself, they're made of too strong do-not-want.
Otherwise, stuff the food I have left in a bag and move to grandma's, she has an excellent place to survive and it has to be defended before someone else notices it.

I think I missed this the first time round so I'm glad it's returned :)

As far as survival plans go I think I'd stay home too, at least for a while. It's not an amazing defensive position but I wouldn't wanna risk going outside (for the exact reasons Dodom mentions). Once things are relatively quiet outside (emphasis on relatively) I'd grab some heavy/sharp things and other supplies and try to find somewhere safer.

Yes I continue to envy you and your jobs anti-zombie benefits plan.

As far as I know I am going to wait with all my dads guns if if visiting; or if at my apartment wait it out with my 12 gauge and this 90 year old .22 revolver and all my blunt objects. ( my apartment is very easily defended only one very narrow stair case on the outside. Its on the third floor only apartment on it it has a working fireplace in it. And sense the water quality sucks in my city i have just a shit tone of bottled water for if the filters and a hurricane comes through.) it is also a gated community with high wrought iron gates witch will slow the hoard greatly.

But if at my apartment get to parents get guns I don't predict them lasting mom works in a hospital and dad a government worker. Then go to girlfriends parents house get more guns and ammo find  mountain valley at the bottom of the Appalachian trail chill there if possible or go to Canada.

Post by: Yutrzenika on April 04, 2010, 01:26:12 pm
I'm not so sure about my plan so far. It depends on how big the breakout is.
Anyways, I'd call my friends and make sure they're alright, barricade all windows, have the truck ready to leave at a moments notice (We live way out in the country, so we'd be fine for awhile), gather supplies, weapons, et cetera, and wait and see what happens, if the shit hits the fan then we'll leave the province. But from there I have no idea what we'd do.

Post by: sok on April 04, 2010, 02:24:33 pm
well, for short periods of time im perfectly safe, as i cant imagine a zombie that could get into my house.
but after some time, when i will run out of food, i will be fuxxxored. though, my block could easily be barricaded, and the place that now is a very tiny park could be used to grow food. though it would be enough for 10 people at most. whereas on my block there is about 2000 people.
besides that, i have no plans.
cause, you know, its not like zombie apocalypse is going to happen:P

nah, slow, shambling zombies wont be a danger to our civilisation.
and if the zombies would move faster than ordinary humans, they would wear down and die of starvation much faster, so they wouldnt be dangerous too.
i think that war between russia and west or china and west is much more probable than that. so, when i will live on my own, i will have food and water storaged.
EDIT:
sorry, i forgot about nanobots.
well, that could happen, but far in the future.
and why use humans, if you have the technology to produce such things? humans would be useless in such situation.

The problem is: yes they do. Slow zombies causing humanity to go extinct is unlikely, but they sure as hell are a threat to civilization.
Just cutting the internet would turn people insane. What do you think happens when up to half or more of the population turns into zombies?
Do you think infrastructure will go normally then? I heavily doubt so.

Quote

Yeah, they will have about a week before they can't go on. A week to chase you down without feeling tired. "not a threat"? errrrrr... -.-


Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: sok on April 04, 2010, 03:07:53 pm
well, not for me. even if they were like superstrong humans, thare is no way that theycould get into my flat, or anyone elses flat on my block, or pretty much anywhere. and i could easily stay at home for a week.
how do you know that they will have a week? i would say a day, before most  of their tendrons are cut or badly damaged. its easily too damage your muscles without warmup, so just think what might happen to them if they were running without feeling pain for extended periods of time. and how would you change a half of population into slow shambling zombies?
any kind of desease that will attack half of the population would cause panic. so in that scenario we dont need zombies, just plain "pesta" is enough to bring our civilisation to its knees.
the only version that seems to me as plausible one is the 28 days later one. or chemical weapons, ive read somewhere that there already are weapons that cause incredible aggresion.
but... its not real zombies, right? just sick humans, who are still alive.

Might not be deliberate. The nanobots could have been designed for some other purpose (EG medical use maybe?) but something goes wrong.

Besides, just because it ain't going to happen doesn't mean it ain't fun to discuss.


Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: BrainBlow on April 04, 2010, 03:32:02 pm
Yeah, but that is the problem.
How do you bump into the zombie apocalypse? How do you recognize it?
Someone is hammering on your door, you open it and "WRAAARGH" you have a face full of teeth and you haven't even realized what is going on.
And most people are probably going to be at work during the outbreak and not at home. And if it is at night, probably 99,9% of the population will think that the shambling figure is a drunkard and not a zombie.

Quote
and how would you change a half of population into slow shambling zombies?
Ok, here is an idea: One zombie loose at the bottom of a huge office building. People gets bitten and turn. Many of those bitten will go to hospitals and turn there. Police might arrest a few zombies, some officers will probably get bitten in the process since zombies don't react to the damage caused by holds. Then some zombies will be run to the police station. Zombies will also be in the street due to people who were bitten might have run away in panic and turned on the streets.
A zombie outbreak is like a fire: When the number of zombies increase, the harder it is to stop the outbreak.
If it is running zombies, it will cause a massive chaos of people running around. Zombies will tackle people in the midst of this chaos and will be hard to differ from panicking people.
You will also wind up having infected on public transportation.
Major cities is the major recruiting area for zombies. And simply getting out of the city won't help much since in the panic, EVERYONE will try to get out. Traffic will jam, etc and zombies will slowly feast upon this mass of trapped humans. And BAM: the infill and the countryside will have their share of the horde.

Yes, chaos will be the major factor due to civilian panic. That is the point. Zombies feed in the chaos. More zombies, more chaos. Then... well, then you are trapped in a zombified world.
Its like frostbite.

Also on the nanobots: Read the article. Nanobots are the future in medical science. And their programmed urge to keep their host alive and their ability to replace dead brain tissue...
Just read the article :3


Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: sok on April 04, 2010, 03:32:22 pm
yes, and thats why i am discussing it, right?:D
and if you had nanobots that could turn you into zombies, i guess that it wouldnt be too hard to make nanobots that could destroy them other nanobots.


Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: Cheez on April 04, 2010, 04:10:25 pm

Already did, quite a while ago. Might reread it though, I can't remember large parts of it.


Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: sok on April 04, 2010, 04:13:39 pm
i think that you have convinced me with the pandemic part. though this way any kind of desease might work (apart from biting and stuff, obviously)


Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: Ninja on April 04, 2010, 04:15:27 pm
Everything depends on the length of incubation period. How much time actually needs to elapse determines how quick S will actually HTF, and by extension how well people can react to an outbreak. Secondary to that is how physically capable the infected are (runners vs shamblers, hunters/'zerkers vs crawlers, that sorta thing)... although whether animals can become infected probably ties with this in terms of importance.

My house is not exactly fortified, and would take a lot of effort to become fortified. However, access to basic building supplies, a sledge, and walled and gated subdivisions with two-story houses are definite advantages in my area. Get a generator or three upstairs, destroy the stairs and build a retractable ladder, put hurricane shutters up over boarded windows, and install blackout curtains on all upstairs windows for several nearby houses. The extra storage room and security from an inaccessible second floor turns a one week hideout into a few months hideout, provided necessities are stocked up on.

Step 1: Make explosives
Step 2: Air Horn
Step 3: Profit

 :P

Like eveyone else has pointed out, it just depends on the specific scenario, but even the smartest zombies usually can only open doors or have the predatory instinct to hide; they're all still pretty stupid and wouldn't recognize a bomb if they were shambling on top of it.

My plan: Put on my badass clothes (hoodie, welding goggles, painter's mask, gloves), grab my crowbar and find a handgun (friend's dad would probably give me one; he has like twelve), grab Chloe and neighborhood friends, and scavenge. Hole up in houses, stay away from large populations for at least a week. Then go downtown.
Most of this is to look badass.
No, I'm not taking this too seriously.
It's good to be back.

Wouldn't explosives like spray infected material around in a wide area?
You wouldn't even be able to watch the explosion and enjoy the poor basterds fly around in pieces because of the risk to get hit with contagious material.

Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: LordSappington on April 05, 2010, 03:55:19 pm
Depends on the explosive. There are more types of explosive than simple 'Blow shit everywhere' variants. You COULD use demolition explosives, which use more of a cutting explosion than 'Spray shit everywhere'.


Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: AmadeusMaxwell on April 05, 2010, 05:02:03 pm
I think I'd end up being lazy and just using propane tanks and Molotov cocktails, very little preparation needed, and you could set an entire horde ablaze quick and easy. Then of course after they've been burning for a few minutes and the smoke starts to gather you'd either need an escape plan or a gas mask/respirator. :P

Post by: The B-man on April 06, 2010, 03:00:19 am
Well, seeing as i living in a rural erea in western Norway, I think I could manage to survive. First I would atempt to call my girlfriend and tell her to take shelter at my parents house ( if the phone still works then offcourse )  . Then I would arive there aswell, and make our way into the basement, where we will gather some supplies and weapons. Then, me and my girlfriend would make our way to the 2nd floor, taking all food, water, ammo, knifes and general stuff that we might need. Then chop down the stairs. After a while, if things are getting better outside. We would try to team up with other survivors and enter a rectangular shaped office building ( that almost were abandoned way before the shit hit the fan ), because  it is easy to defend and the only stairs are possible to block or removed.

Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: The B-man on April 06, 2010, 10:35:24 am
Why, yes they are. Well, it depend where they are at that moment. But I recon they would be at my fathers summer house. Whitch is on an island not so far from where they and I live.


Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: BrainBlow on April 10, 2010, 05:36:00 am
This is a plan that me and a friend planned out together.
Notice that we have already taken into account that anyone can die/disappear or not be around during the outbreak.
The plan is made to be as fluid as possible and we have "alternate routes" in it.
For example, say that the outbreak is during the local fair. In that case the local population can rise with up to a thousand temporarily and maneuvering in the center of the town would be near impossible without putting your life at risk. Finding people would also be harder and the chance of the vital members of the plan being in the most dangerous areas would be very likely.
Summertime after/before the fair, late spring or early autumn would be the most preferable for the plan. A somewhat different plan is made for winter season.
During the start of the outbreak I will probably be at home. And I'll react pretty fast if I hear globally of people eating each other in some sort of frenzy.
If it is clear that this is an outbreak and there are no signs of it being suppressed then the plan will start immediately.
First we will get a load of supplies. Unless zombies are already shambling around in town, we will buy all the food, tools etc in a responsible manner. After all, if it is clear that shit is going downhill from here on then wasting a load of money on the necessary things is no loss.
Now, I live in a coastal town in Norway with a population around 3-4000. Why would I expect this place to get overrun at all?
Well, every night, two cruise ships docks at the harbor. One coming from the south(all the way from southern Norway) and one coming from the north.
There are also regularly coming container ships here and there is a local airport.
Also, in a zombie panic, the government would probably get evac sites around the country. This town just happens to be a tactical position too.

Lets just say I'm going to pretty much abandon most of my family.
Though I will call around and tell them to get to my mother's island and grab some supplies on the way there(and to stay away from the infected, make it clear that there is no current cure, zombies aren't people, shot the head, don't bring too many people, not to look for me, etc).
The island is big and has its own freshwater sources and lots of wood. Sheep too. So if stuff goes downhill then my step-father can prepare enough meat for several people for a long time. We also have some hens and the island have foxes, grouse, moose, deer, seagulls(and other birds), the sea has fish of course and there is enough land for the sheep to graze so that spending resources on having them fed doesn't become too much of a problem. The island also has multiple guns and if possible, I will try to get my hands on the Winchester.
Why won't I go with them? First of all, I don't think it will go too well and I really value my survival. Second of, my closest friends are much more reliable in the event of a zombie apocalypse.

After grabbing all the resources from the stores, including ammunition and hunting weapons from the local sports store, we will tank up a load of fuel. As much as possible.
We were very specific on the resources since many of the resources are things most "zombie survival plans" don't even mention.
Toothbrushes and other dental products are actually extremely important.
We will borrow(and claim ownership to as soon as the panic arrives) books, cartoons, manuals and literature from the local library in heaps.
The local agriculture store will has many tools that will be useful. But the almost most important thing is that it has a lot of highly durable
clothing that can be used for years in different seasons.
We will then head further into the commune and go to the farm of my friend's grandparents.
The location has many of the same benefits as my mother's island and there are many handy people in my friend's family(most of them lives in the more rural areas of the commune). If we are lucky then we are able to get my friend's mother with us. She is an educated nurse.
Hopefully we will be able to get most key characters there.
We will get rid of everything useless in the area(potentially burn it) and make barricades around the farm which are more against the living than the dead.
We will make a roadblock and check any other survivors coming by for infection(helping to stop the infection from spreading into the commune) and if we find characters with highly important skills(carpenters, doctors, etc) then they can be offered a place in the "settlement". And if they try anything "funny" then much of the day will be spent on cleaning up the mess.
What will happen after establishing will depend on the season and who we managed to "evacuate" with.

shoes, are very important.
because i hate buying them, usually i have only one pair at the time.
i can tell you, that even very high quality shoes, designed for trekking, after a year are very worn.
keep that in mind, and does anyone of you military guys know how it is with the army shoes?


Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: Ninja on April 10, 2010, 02:59:14 pm
Do not look to the military to set an example for long-lasting, hard-use boots. That is counter-productive to military philosophy; they need boots that will have either a very short or no break-in time, that are durable enough for the mission, and that can be purchased in massive quantities at discount.

The best place to go for finding out which shoes and boots will have the long-term wearability you/we'd want is at hiking, backpacking, running, and cross-country running forums. A lot of hikers and backpackers can keep the same pair of boots for years, sometimes decades if you take care of them. Running shoes tend to take more abuse only because they're a lighter material. I've had running shoes last a couple years of running regularly, but they aren't made anymore (some older New Balance shoe). My Asolo boots will last 20 years if I do my part (I've spoken with other backpackers with 20+ year old versions of my boots...).

Very freakin' good point to bring up, though. Runners and trekkers often buy a spare pair of boots that they like just because good boots and shoes are hard to come by.

Army boots come in several varieties. Also, you (assuming you're a cobbler, or know a cobbler) can have them modified to better suit your needs. What you'd want to do, would be to go through the different types, try them on, and see how you like them. Then the ones that're the best match for you, you'd have modified. If you take proper care of them, the boots should last quite some time.

I've got a pair now that're going on ... hell, my parents got them for me when I finished Basic... almost ten years, I guess. Nine and a half? I've worn the soles down nearly smooth, at this point. But you can get the soles replaced, on a good pair of boots. I've also got a couple of pairs of the older desert boots, which would then be... seven years old, I guess. The soles on one of those pairs came apart, though- probably from being heated so much in Kuwait. The other pair that I never actually wore in the desert has no problems. And again, if I wasn't lazy, I'd just take the first pair to a boot shop and get them fixed.

In general, I prefer a more snug fit with a softer sole if I'm going to be running a lot, and a somewhat harder sole for general day-to-day wear. That's just a matter of preference, though.

...and I prefer 'first lord' ;)

good to know, i was thinking about getting military boots for quite some time now:D
and you know, i was talking about ordinary shoes, like ecco, or nikes, i dont think that a cobbler could do much with them.
though, high heels might be good for killing zombies- pointy, a well placed kick in the eye socket might be just the thing you need:D

IF all goes well my medieval leather boots should arrive tomorrow.They've got nails in the sole and would probably be a very bad choice in a survival situation, but they look bad ass :P

I just realized that my own room wouldn't be a bad hiding place when the zombies come. It's two floors high and has got only one entrance. It would be very easy to defend although supplies might become a problem if help wouldn't arrive soon...

Yes, chaos will be the major factor due to civilian panic. That is the point. Zombies feed in the chaos. More zombies, more chaos. Then... well, then you are trapped in a zombified world.

Very good point, classic zombies (shamblers/crawlers) wouldn`t be too much of a treat against a well armed,organized and put together defense,  they are basically slower humans without guns, it`s the confusion they generate that makes them so dangereous

28 weeks later could have made a good movie about this, a outbreak on a well organized comunity with knowledge about the virus, had they not made the military act stupid putting survivors in a "safe room" with no locks or guards and in the middle of everything, the only remaining carrier of the virus on an open room with no vigilance and basic security clearence and some more really stupid mistakes that I assume they wouldn`t make in reality

Well, living in Arizona, its not hard to find an area where no one lives. So as it is, for the first few months/years/ whatever I stay in my house, Ninjing in the day time for supplies. If I'm followed I go out to the middle of nowhere, lose them, and work my way back. In my house right now I have access to 4 different hand-guns and parts for a zip gun that fire just about any caliber you can throw at me. If I can I will take in any survivors I can before we come close to danger of over population. so about 8 people. Soon as I can out to the dessert, on to the Gila River (almost always dry) and hopfully we can follow that to the white tanks and keep moving north for a fer hundred miles. After that I stay there, and maybe venture out to see if all the zombies have decayed yet a few decades later.

Isolate myself and my wife to a predetermined safe spot (which has been picked already as of 090320) at time of incident.


Things I should be doing in preperation for the outbreak:

1) Stocking up on ammo and weapons
2) Stocking up on those 5 gallon jugs of water/MREs
3) Make sure the chemical toilet at the safe spot is serviceable and hygenic.
4) Train, train, train!
5) Ensure safe spot is being developed with defense in mind. Invest into it because that's gonna be home for a while
6) Stock fuel at safe point for the generator
7) Have a preplanned route to the safe point from the location I am residing at.

Blah blah blah. You get the drift.

good to know, i was thinking about getting military boots for quite some time now:D
and you know, i was talking about ordinary shoes, like ecco, or nikes, i dont think that a cobbler could do much with them.
though, high heels might be good for killing zombies- pointy, a well placed kick in the eye socket might be just the thing you need:D
anyone played blood rayne? remember her shoes?

I was looking hard at a pair of Danners last year. Expensive and kind of heavy but they have stitched on soles. Stepping on someone's head with a combat-boot stomp does tend to be fatal. So, no need to go exotic to be able to do the "Zombie Stomp" with confidence. Steel toes are pretty brutal too. (People have been murdered with them.) only down side is they can be very hard on your feet.

Good boots will cost you; but they will probably last longer then you want to keep them. Got 3-4 years of daily wear out of my Rockies. They could probably be redone (again.) but the soles are separating again and I think they're kind of done. Uppers are totally fine just the soles giving up the ghost.

Having good soles and good socks is what is important. Steel toes ain't so bad when having that. Even in snow(obviously not in the amounts of snow where you are forced to wade through the snow).
And yes, they'd be nice to have against zombies. You could use some pole-arm to knock the zombies over and then kick the ever loving shit out of them while they are trying to get up!
Though that would need to be done much more carefully than it sounds since you would be in deep shit if you missed the zombie when stomp kicking and then not have a hammer/crowbar at hand while wearing protective pants.

ZA has just happened outside your window whether you're at school, work, wherever its there. Its still in the early stages, but you know that soon chaos will ensue, phones will cease to work, and travel will become almost impossible by car.

What do you do, where do you go, who's worth picking up along the way. We'd all love it if we could bring all of our friends and family, but chances are they're spread out, and you can't reach them all in time (plus some will slow you down).

My best idea was to head somewhere north surrounded by water, like some island off of maine. Would love to hear any and all responces.

Vaeringr:

Maybe the steelcap issue is because of the model of the boot. I wear steelcaps at work and only the unflexible sole ever caused me discomfort (I'm more into light shoes I can feel the ground through) but I knew a punky boy who had a stress fracture from wearing steelcaps. Not even kicking, just walking with them. His were visibly narrower than work boots and probably designed more for the badass factor than for being practical.
I also saw a guy who ripped the metal parts out of his work boots and attached them to sandals so he wouldn't feel hot in summer. When the zombies come, I plan on pointing a finger at him and shout "Eat him first!" I'm sure the zombies will understand.

I wear steel toes with a cushion at the toes. You cant see the steel due it a layer of rubber surrounding it. I got them for 88$ at a surplus store.


Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: Cheez on April 25, 2010, 09:04:43 pm
What's the point of a cushion on the outside of the boot? Surely you'd want it on the inside so the toe doesn't impact on the toecap?

I've stubbed my toe and bent my toenail before when the toe whacked the inside of the toecap when I kicked something.


Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan

On the outside it's for thermal insulation. So the steel doesn't get too freezy.




Breaking the shoe discussion for a moment, today I has one thought: if someone wants to ready his house for the apocalypse, security cameras would be a relatively inexpensive thing to install, and electricity would probably last long enough for them to fulfill their purpose: to allow you to figure out what's going on without having the zombies seeing you.

My zombie plan really depends on when and where and what time the Zombie Apocalypse. It all usually (unless its impossible to get out of town) but I'll be trying to get my friends together and get up to my cottage. If not, maybe try to hold my school, but I'm sure I can find a better place.

Every saturday I visit a friend of mine who works at a citgo, and we have this conversation. We talk about our different methods and what'd we do, but ultimately we don't have a percise plan. I think its because we have no idea who we'd manage to bring along safely. I can't imagine how insanely difficult it would be to make like 7 or eight stops to pick up people who may or not be able to contribute and ultimately just slow you down. I think its best to just take the people who can make the cut along with whoever's lucky enough to be home or near when you call.

I've seen alot of posts from people who live in very rural areas, which is lucky for them in the multiple ways they've always stated. For someone like me who lives in Chicago, this is waaay harder. More people, more chaos, and we already have TERRIBLE freaking traffic on any given day of the week.

Best thing I me and my friend could come with starts with raiding his citgo of the tow truck and supplies. Then grabbing whoever makes the luck of the draw and is within our "rescue" range which would probably be people who live within a half an hour. Then we'd make our way downtown (probably the most dangerous thing to do), to the docks and hopefully steal some sort of large boat that could support X ammount of people. Then we'd of course be stuck in lake mischigan, which would be safe from zombies, but not other people. We'd then have to find someway out of the giant pond or just head northward to canada where people are less congested and hopefully find some sort of safehaven.

Anyone got an idea as to some sort of continuence to my plan? (sorry for spelling and grammer, I know its really bad)

Ok, a freind and I sat on the deck and spent some time contemplating a zombie apocolypse this weekend (children played in the yard and we threw back some beers, but I digress).  We live in the western suburbs of Philadelphia and assumed the worst case quick spreading end of the world type zombie scenario.

Philly has about 1.4 million in it.  We figured worst case 1/2 the population turns zombie, the other 1/2 dies outright or flees.  That's 700,000 zombies expanding out of the city after the initial outbreak, when we assumed we would know what's going on and possibly have seen some zeds in our area. We dig in.  Generator, enough gas for several days with minimal usage, food, 10,000ish rounds of ammo for various firearms, tools, vehicles, etc.

Now we make some assumptions.  Most of the zombies move north out of the city, because there are rivers on 3 sides of the city and less will cross bridges than wander up open streets.  Once they are at the north city limits they can go west, north, or northeast with most roads funneling north and northeast.  We assumed 1/4 go west towards us.  175,000 zeds heading west.  At this point we figure we live on the wrong side of the river.  We also make the assumption that as it the horde will remain the same size (losses will equal new zombies).  We are 30 miles from philly and guessed zombie horde travel at 10 miles per day.

Based on this we figure we can't stay.  The plan has to be "bug out". So let the initial panic die down over 2 days, deal with local zombie threats and then bail.  So out planning is now, after the social collapse, how to se move families overland and where.  To be continued...

I'd intend on staying in the Boston area, maybe go out to an island that nobody has been to. I do have a boat.

Maybe stay in the castle at Castle Island, there is enough room to store and farm for a small group of people, and the ocean is nearby. I'd just have to blockade any routes in. There is also a port right there so I might scavenge containers for supplies if I could.

I have a fair amount of relatives withing 5 blocks of my house, all of which have some sort of weapon and decent common sense. My family favors large cars and have a hobby of gardening. We have plumbers, a carpenter and a mechanic. The rest of us have basic knowledge in such areas. I'd say we could run a safe house for quite some time with a majority of the family and then start gathering survivors.

What kind of outbreak are we talking about here is it full blown chaos off the start or am I going to be able to see it coming?
If it is full blow right off the start like i wake up and i am screwed because there is zombie every place i try to get too.  Then I am going to make a break for my uncles house were i keep all my hunting gear and my side arm. i have my FID for fire arms and plan on applying for my class A soon. If I manage to make it there without incident I will stock up on as much ammo as  there is for the taken and then look for some place were i can post up for the night with little or no risk.
The next morning the hunt for food and water and maybe someone to hold up with. This can either be an a good idea or a really bad one people can sometimes be more dangerous than the invasion itself. I got so many ideas on what to do from there but i am going to cut it short and see what everyone else will do I will post more soon on what I want to do :)

How do you bump into the zombie apocalypse? How do you recognize it?
Someone is hammering on your door, you open it and "WRAAARGH" you have a face full of teeth and you haven't even realized what is going on.

About this, there`s a remis (Don`t know if that`s a word in english, in spanish is kinda like a cab, you call a car with a driver that gets you from point A to B) place next to my building, the receptionist was just drinking coffee at around 7 AM on a sunday and a drunkard entered the place pushing the door and shambling a little, then threw himself on top of her and bite her shoulder repeatedly, until he was scared away by a neighbor with his dog...First thing I though was "a zombie?=P", but what if he actually was? she would`ve turned, and if she bitted someone else we would have though it was a cause of the stress (she actually had to undergo  psichologycal therapy)

I live on the edge of the second biggest city in the country. It isn't far to the motorway so I'm sure if I could get a car (No license but who's gonna do anything about that in the zombie apocalyse??) I'd be able to eventually get to either somewhere remote or to the coast. Now getting to the coast would take longer but I could then try to steal a boat and get out onto the ocean, which afaik would be zombie free. The chances of me gettin any kind of firearm are slim to nil so it'd be melee all the way, which won't end well. I don't have anything I would find useful in such a situation. No weapons, no leather jackets (Pretty bite resistant i'd assume).

I wouldn't last long but then this is the Zombie apocalypse so 90% of people won't. If I got out of the city then I'd run out of medication within a month (At the most) and then likely have a seizure at the worst possible time (Me and Godwins' law have a bit of a disagreement). One advantage I have, is a bigass supermarket down the road that is full of supplies.. And zombies.

but ill get bored eventually so you guys are invited to come party.

things to have ready for z-day:

-guns
-tools (shovels, excavators)
-sporting equipment
-boring stuff like food and water

-place to hide

Phase 1

Without drawing unwanted attention from the panicing public, I would quietly steal a Land Rover from the workshop, scoot throug the armory to stock up with a proper amount of ammunition and some spare rifles. On my way to the refuelling station i would stop by the mess lounge and grab all MRE packages i can get a hold of and of course emergencey water rations. At the refuelling station I would also pick up two extra jerry cans for emergency usage only.

After driving through the brigade gate, i would only stop briefly at my apartment to collect my personal weapons, clothing and some other bits that might be of use.

Phase 2

Make it through the next day...


Title: Re: Your zombie survival plan
Post by: Flustrator on August 31, 2010, 03:52:03 pm
It really all depends on the capabilities of the zombies, for me.

In any case, I would always be on the move. Seeing as it probably wouldn't be particularly safe to remain in one spot for too long. But, I would stay stealthy. Thinking about my every movement. Staying alert.

I would always have a weapon handy. A large, sturdy melee weapon (Bat, Shovel, etc...) for silence. A knife, more as a tool than a weapon. Guns wouldn't be too high on my list because they are loud and can attract more zombies, but they are a necessity. A pistol for portability. And some high-powered automatic weapon, for tight spots when I would have to take out a lot of zombies all at once. Of course that brings up the problem of ammunition. But I think if I plan ahead to avoid being trapped in a sea of zombies, I wouldn't need to use it as much. I would like to use my guns as little as possible.

I would probably either: search for some sort of human salvation, or journey to find my family (whether or not it is a lost cause) who live quite far away. Mostly to have some motivation to keep surviving. And should I lose my will, I would save one bullet for myself.

That's basically it.

Not very detailed, but it's a start.  :)

hello, i'm new here. I've been a fan of the undead forever (excluding ghosts!!!!) If an outbreak took place in the US, I would head south, My reasoning is this: if everyone fled north to be safe, wouldn't a majority of the horde of zombies follow them? Sure it's safer in winter But the roadways would be clogged with Cars, bodies, animals and a massive amount of zombies. I figure, since everyone would head toward canada or alaska I would head towards florida or texas because, as previously stated the main horde would be on northbound roadways. for weapons i would use whatever was at hand. hopefully guns but I wouldn't say no to a bat or brick in a pinch.....hell, I would stay away from most towns or cities. Food I would pack, but i would hunt or forage too. see y'all in the apocalypse

Unless you live in a sparsely populated region, try to avoid the military bases because there will be way too many refugees there. My home city is San Diego and although we have Camp Pendleton, Miramar MCAS, North Island NAS, and many other military facilities, I can guarantee they'd be filled with panicky people. Just try to stay out of cities in general. Even military installations that might be located in a small town could be within a short distance of major metropolitan areas. For example, Fort Hood is between Austin and Waco so it would be inundated with refugees from those two cities.

I have different zombie plans depending on how much notice I have.

Plan 1 (6 months' notice or more)
This would be if a zombie outbreak started outside of North America. I'd try to get myself a cabin somewhere in the Canadian Rockies and stock it with enough water, canned food, medicine, and gasoline to last for months. There would also be some packets of seeds so I could do some planting. I'd order two Short Magazine Lee-Enfield rifles, two Winchester shotguns, and two M1911 Colt pistols. Why two? Because one of them might break or I might find a partner. I'd spend months shipping ammo and other supplies up there and do my best to read up on wilderness survival, woodworking, and agriculture. Since North America probably wouldn't be in panic mode the shipping services would be working efficiently. At the first sign of an outbreak on this continent I'd go straight to my refuge.

And if the zombie outbreak is contained before it reaches my area, then at least I'll have one hell of a hunting lodge.  ;D

Plan 2 (several weeks' notice)
If an outbreak occurred in the United States I'm actually in a pretty good location. College Station is in the middle of nowhere; Houston and Austin are both more than a hundred miles away. That would give me enough time to get supplies and guns before panic sets in amongst the general population. The staircase outside is easy to dismantle so I can remain safe up on the second floor. I would also need to take precautions and be ready to move out. To do that I'd prepare like I would for a long backpacking trip and get ready to set out for Houston or Galveston. They're cities but I'd need a place where I might find a boat that could take me to Cuba.

Plan 3 (I wake up tomorrow with one of them pounding on my door)
First, assess the situation. If they're scattered then I'd just grab my hammer, fight off the immediate threat, and set to work taking down the staircase. After that I could start formulating more of a plan.

If there's a horde of them around here, then there would be nothing to do but throw clothes, contents of medicine cabinet, roll of toilet paper (important), water bottles, and non-perishable food in my duffel bag. Then I'd climb out my window and start walking towards the Gulf.

To be truthful it really depends on the warnings I get and the location I am in at the time. Also depends on the type of zombie, Fast or shambler?

Overall I would probably choose my school as there is an entire underground complex that has hundreds of desks in it, as well as timber and a reasonable supply of heat and electricity with the solar generator complex. There is also a greenhouse area that could have food grown on it.

Altogether the underground complex sounds very useful, did I mention the doors to the underground are made of metal?

I think knowing how fast the infection is spreading helps. I have two sites planned out. One is the ideal site where I have time to move everything I want to my planned site. The second is is 5 minute grab and go, where the site is close by.

Thick clothing, head protection and leather gloves are a must as well as tall leather boots. Anything that makes it harder for you to get bitten is essential. I'd have to go with a large vehicle, either a truck or an SUV, though an SUV may be preferable due to the bed being vulnerable to hiding zombies in a pick up. Firstly I would gather my children and strap them in as quickly and calmly as possible and then head for open country. Trying to wall yourself up in a city is foolhardy, the zombie population density will be much higher in a city setting and it will be much more difficult to get anywhere via city streets as the mad dash begins. I'd find a secure house without many neighbors and begin boarding up windows and any other possible zombie entry points. As for non weapon/armor supplies I'd bring an AM/FM radio and a CB radio for communication purposes as well as a netbook and cell phone to aid me as long as those means of communication held out. Also in tow would be a gas powered generator, for when the power grid went down and a good supply of dried and ready to eat food items such as jerky, dried fruits, trail mix, etc. Anyone or anything attempting to approach the house would be wiped out with extreme prejudice, no sense in taking any chances, and I'd wait things out for as long as my food reserves continued to last before venturing out. I would be very unlikely to take in any allies as these can easily turn on you or become liabilities down the road. Once the dust settled from the initial onslaught I'd begin a local area sweep, clearing out any zombies I found and attempting to make contact via radio so as to keep constantly updated. Many think of taking over a store or other large, food filled shelter but obviously these places will be targets for raiders and also heavily zombified hot zones.

Depends how fast the chaos starts. Did you realise that a lot of looters and clones of me would be running around from the stores, looting anything useful?
Plus the factor, how fast did you realise it would start? What if there is no announcement and suddenly a zombie is banging on your door?

The zombie will be screaming, (I LIKE CEREAL!)

Not like I don't already have that stuff around the house now, just forgot to list it. Also, I don't live in a heavily populated area, it's unlikely that the place would be swarmed very rapidly. In the event that it was, however, I'd hold up here for as long as needed, I have supplies to last and it isn't far from the door to the truck and from there to a loooong network of dirt roads.

Well, I would head north west preferably. Get up into the mountains, find a place were you have to go above the frost line to get to. Hopefully a vally with a decent cave system ( make certain that any openings that can be accessed from below the perminant frost line are sealetd tight ) were you can obtain food. Pull together any people along the way. While it may be faster and easer to travil alone long term servival of the speaces requires a viable population to provide genetic diversity. It would be better to have such a settlement  set  up already. This particular plan has the benifit of being sound for nuclear and biological attacks. Not just being a decent bet when it comes to a  zombie outbreak as I tend to be of the theory that even walking dead are not likly to move very far when frozen. Though _Ice Zombies_ would make an interesting SciFi original.

They can hate all they want, so long as they go in an opposite direction and don't cause anything for any Undead to notice. Which ironically is the reason why I would travel alone. Too many people that would break down, you know go crazy and start shouting up a storm or tyring to kill other people, namely myself, or just causing a scene for the Zombies to notice.

By saying "All for one and one for all", you are saying "Everyone will do anything they can for just one, and just one will do anything he can for everyone."

So I think you're trying to say "I want to be a hermit", which can work if you can actually live like that. A lot of people who openly talk about how much they hate everyone and want to live completely alone are the people who spend all day hanging out with people, or talk to people on the internet whenever they get the chance. But if you can REALLY stop all interaction with people, more power to you. Until you roll your ankle, or break your leg, or hurt your hand, or anything else that isn't really a big deal in a group but will fuck you to death if you're alone.

That, as cooky as it may sound, is my best chance at survival. Stay quiet, avoid unnecessary conflicts, save equipment and use it only when need be.

The only real way you could survive with other people around is taking shelter in an Army fortified Base or a heavily fortified building. Like a Hotel or a Bunker or something.

dude, i have a feeling any kids left alive would be like the kids from little lamplight.
Pretty much saying, theyre as sharp and hardened as you are, if not more.

The way i see it, Every adult-child relationship will end in one of them being a zombie. Flip a coin to see who. Then flip another to see if that zombie ends up eating the other person. (there IS of course the instance that they both become infected, but thats too complicated.)

ANYWAY.

Adult gets infected.
Child kills adultzombie.

Child is on their own, and they stumble out into the developed wasteland, and they fend for themselves, theyd learn to stop taking peoples shit lightning fast.

Mainly this post is to remove the name of he who shall remain nameless from popping up as the last one who posted in a thread...anyway

Thanks to Dodom's thread I think part of my zombie survival plan will now include locations of supplies for long term scavenging.  Most obvious places will get picked clean, but others could last a while for example....

1.   Medical supplies will be gone from hospitals and drug stores, but what about veteranary clinics.  they have many of the same supplies as hospitals.

2.   Gasoline - gone from a gas station, but many motorpools (school bus depots) have their own pumps

3.  Salt - all of those Department of transportation storage units off of highways, and large landscaping services often have supplies of it because they do plowing in the winter.

4.  Alcohol - It will all be gone from the store shelves, but wholesales don't advertise what's in their warehouses to cut down on breakins

I have not been in the forums in forevar.  Oh well.  I would gather the family.  Get them in my durable '95 Jeep.  Drive to my little brother.  I'd steal supplies & gas along the way.  My likkle brother is a nuke tech for the US Navy.  He does important stuff and his commanding officers like him.  Have him get me onto a USS Carrier. I don't really care which one. Damn things floating castles of DOOM that can destroy a country.  He told me that all US Carriers have enough food, ammo, and supplies to last for 50 years without going to port!  And they're nuclear powered (that's his job - he keeps the shiny dangerous engine running smoothly) so it is good to for 75 years at least!  If I get on those I'm safe.  I'm also have a geography with a certificate in GIS so I can read and make maps!  I got the college training Katie has naturally.  I'd be useful.  That is the plan.  IF I can't get to him, I would get to the nearest port make myself useful to the Navy, and get out on open water.  So far I haven't see any swimming zombies.  GO NAVY.

Despite the deadness of this thread I will revive it for its sticky status only.

My survival plan is very simple. Be out before everyone else. I do not intend to be taking any massive amount of supplies with me as my uncle is living up about a hour's drive from some of the thickest areas of the Canadian Shield. He has about 12 solar panels running more electricity to his house then he can use so he charges car batteries for people. It wouldn't be too hard to stockpile some of those batteries for when the panels eventually bleach out but that far north and in that kind of terrain I'm relatively confident that we will see little if any zombie activity. Its 85%-90% sufficient living they have up there and I would get "first dibs" so to speak once other family members start to show up and it becomes necessary to turn people away. It will. The mean age of my extended family is 52 and I'm 18, the oldest of the children. It just isn't possible as there are too many dependants, basic social structure actually.

As for armaments, my Restricted licensing is going through which will enable me to purchase an AR-15. Essentially the only and best option if your looking for a decent rifle in Canada that actually can be modified to a burst fire option. My uncle however is an Ex-Canadian servicemen who has a grandfathered Prohibited level license. :D Supposedly the collection is "substantial" and I can't wait to see it. Also the only benefit to a Harper government here in Canada is that Harper is scrapping the long gun registry which will really loosen a lot of the needless red tape involved in gun control here.

Don't underestimate surviving. When it comes to living, you can't get there without surviving, too.

This makes a lot of valid points. The one thing I'd like to point out is the durability of the zombies that are attacking. You do have rigor mortis that locks the body up after death. Zombies that are strong enough to survive this are probably pretty weak.

But are they effected by rigor mortis? Are they just shuffling dead, or can they run and jump?
Basically, what kind of undead are we dealing with?

Or what does the virus/parasite/fungi that reanimated them do to the body?? Will it react to the same things a normal corpse would or will it buypass a few of these things??

I think my plan would be to call as many, or contact as many people as I could and gather them together. They'd hopefully have better plans than me. I would grab my asthma medication and extra clothing I could wear. Maybe some money just in case. I think I would go to some food store, or sports store. I don't really have something more than that as a plan, lol. Last resort, I kill myself.

I personally would probably suck at surviving the Apocalypse. I don't know how to shoot a gun
Or how to fire an arrow... However I'm good with knives and daggers (in the kitchen) and if all else fails there is always a chainsaw. I would suggest not using a wrench unless you're really strong and it's a good wrench. I know a ton about the ZA. So I would hope Someone would try to keep me alive... Also typically the funny people go down first... No offense it's just typically what happens. I would advise a plan to run to The nearest store (only like five miles for me) raid it... Of all dried supplies, Oreos, twinkies(you saw what I did there), beef jerkey, granola bars, donuts, bread, and then go to the camp section for dried meals. I'd get one of those large and light camping bags that include a sleeping bag (some of them actually do) and stuff everything in it. Putting my weapons in easy to reach cup holders. I'd also buy a water bottle (bad idea to die from thirst while not trying to get eaten. I'd advise a plan to find another safe location with a good lock down system... I'd also advise a couple more store raids (which for me would be very easy cause a lot of the big name stores are close to each other at least three within a 15 mi. Radius) also if you ever move, I suggest it be a low populated place... Less ZOMBIES..... Yep also buy a jet or plane/boat and get a licenses so you can fly away to Hawaii or some island... Cause if zombies can survive water it take them forever to get to your island anyway! Hopefully this helped someone in devising a plan. :)

I'd... seriously suggest not using a chainsaw.

Anyhoop, my plan's updated a bit- gather weapons, supplies and friends and head to either
A. Caerphilly to hole up in the castle:
(http://www.webbaviation.co.uk/gallery/d/32162-1/CarphillyCastle-cb14726.jpg)

Because seriously, no fecking way zombies are getting in there. That island can even be used as an airlock/crops and livestock area. And thanks to tourism, the interior of the castle is in very good nick. Just need to uncap the well and you're in business.

or B. Barry to set up in St. Catherine's fort.
(http://i1.walesonline.co.uk/incoming/article2823542.ece/ALTERNATES/s615/st-catherines-island001-2823542.jpg)

Again, incredibly defensible. There's always desalination for water if needed, plus you have coastal access for looting.

First off I just want to say that I dont even remember how I found this comic but it only took me three days to get through the whole thing and I am glad I found it!

So Zombie Survival, My background first. I am 24, 6ft and very average build, I have worked security for 6 years, Armed for 4 of them; Carring a Glock on the job and other non-work weapons would be in my already set go bag I have for everyday emergencies: 3 Mag-Lites assorted sized, two steel tooth blades 10 inches with 5 inch blade, a few flares, basic medkit, MREs, ham crank radio, etc and I have a Psychology background so knowing how to deal with people and situations should be my real bonuses on the outside and when encountering other survivors. I have to admit, without a wife or a child, I am going to be selfish if it ever happens in my area because I cant rely on how people will react if something like it were to happen, emotions, shock, fear, etc will only hinder their abilities and slow us down, . So let me explain the area I am in. I am 10 minutes across the George Washington Bridge from New York, it is a metro type area and people and buildings and especially big highways everywhere and those are all negatives for my survival unless I take local roads and go straight North into upstate New York to try and get away from the masses and try to keep to myself for as long as possible. I have minimal knowledge of hunting but I'm not sure how I will do in the snow season, I have some horse back riding history so if I find a ranch I can saddle up two or three and that will increase my traveling and up my inventory capacity.

That whole scenario is based on being able to get OUT of populated areas. If I am stuck inside the city then I am going to go 28 weeks later and cade up in an apartment building, top floor and clear out each room, cade the exits and start systematically clearing out each floor and gaining supplies from the rooms.

CRITIQUE ME

I noticed that some of the castle designs include and depend on moats or other water barriers.
Those only work if zombies can't walk, unbreathing, right under the water (and protected from attack by said water) up to a random spot on your beach or even start burrowing under the submerged walls.

Oops.

If your castle is sitting on solid rock, with sheer cliffs all the way from the seabed to the ramparts, I'd think you'd be good.  Any equivalent structure of reinforced concrete should also work well.  Modern Skyscrapers could work well; particularly with skybridges that can be isolated.

Heck, the freaking Pentagon would be an awesome hardpoint.
