I believe scouting should always be done in pairs. We've been taught since day 1 of kindergarten the buddy system, right? Use it. Always stay within eye contact of each other, but at the same time remain hidden in your respective spots, one of you gets in trouble with a zed, *pop* (or swish) your partner takes care of it. You get captured, your partner neutralizes the threat (or follows to where they're taking you, then calls for backup depending on how severe).

When I started thinking way too much about zombies:
When I first watched the unholy trilogy. AKA The George A. Romero films Night, Dawn, and Day of the Dead
28 days later. Some people say they aren't zombies, but I don't care what they say. They bite and infect people with something that turns them into things liker themselves, they eat human flesh, and they have lost all humanity. I saw this movie and ever since I've been enthralled by the idea of a zombie apocalypse. If anyone's going to survive, it's me. That's not arrogance, it's confidence.
Type of zombies I believe in:
28 days later "Rage" zombies. They're undeniably the most likely to occur as they're a biological weapon meant to destabilize populations and countries.
However, if we prepare for the type of Zombies in Brian Keene's "The Rising" We're prepared for anything.
They are the undead, possessed by (basically demons) in order to destroy humanity as a giant middle finger to god whom they have a vendetta against (because he created them but loved humans more so he banished them to the void). They can do anything their host body knew how to do by accessing the brain. They can shoot, drive, plan ambushes, etc. Also, they possess dead animals too.
*END OF SPOILER ALERT*
PREPARE FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF INFECTED ANIMALS!!!! Birds, cats, dogs, horses, fish; everything! Have you ever seen a flock of 1000+ birds and thought, "Holy... if those were zombies I'd shoot myself now..."
Favorite zombie book: The Rising, City of the Dead, Dead Sea, all by Brian Keene (Quite graphic, but good reads). The Walking Dead Graphic novel, Would you survive the zombie apocalypse? (choose your own ending book).
Favorite zombie movie: 28 days later, George Romero's stuff, even the bad ones.
Favorite quote in any zombie movie: "Good? Bad?.... I'm the guy with the gun." ~Ash, Army of Darkness~
Details, Details, details:
My “handle” should you look for me on the radio waves: "Grimm" or "Badwolf".
My location: Lincoln, CA.
Will I be staying in my home headed somewhere else?
I'm headed somewhere within 30 minutes of where I live. Though until everything calms down, we'll likely be gathering supplies and reinforcing my house as a fallback position. No sense trying to bug out when everyone's freaking out and willing to kill to escape. We'll fortify, stock, and defend until about a month in. Thenstealthilymake our way to our final destination.If I'm heading out, how do I plan to get there?
My car is a 1996 Lincoln Town Car (Appropriate, right?). My mom has a 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 which can be used to carry a bulk of the supplies. Gas will be siphoned from cars and stored in barrels with preservatives.
Eventually we'll be out of gas, or it will simply be too precious to use for non-mandatory trips, at which point we have two horses (One of which IS a draft horse) which we can fashion a carriage or wagon for and use them to get around or haul supplies. There are also many other horses in our area which we can find (if they've been left behind) and incorporate them into our Equine herd.
Got anyone I want to take with me?
There are a lot of people that I want to take with me, however the most immediate group of people would be my immediate family (Me, my mother, my father) and my neighbors family (Him, his father, stepmother, sister, maybe their aunt and uncle). Him and his father have firearms experience and thousands of hours of ranch maintenance work (including welding, mechanics, construction, etc.) so they would make excellent additions, as well as the fact that I trust them.
Beyond that, there are many others. I will contact them by phone and have them meet at my place. When it comes time to leave, they can all go wherever they want or come with me. If they come with me and my group, then we'll all go in groups of 8 or less, at least 4 of those able-bodied and capable of defending others.
The first will be all able-bodied with at least a small amount of combat training, who will clear the location and guard it waiting for others to arrive. They'll even be within my walkie-talkie range.
How will I communicate with the outside world?
There's a local radio broadcasting place within a couple miles of here, so we could possibly broadcast from there. Other than that, CB radios could work.
How am I planning to get food and water?
Water:Stored tap water (from my well), and stocked water for the first weeks/months, after that we'll use a hand operated pump and some piping parts to draw water from my well on a weekly basis, which we will filter as usual. Rain catches during the rainy months and condensation traps as well can supplement stored supplies.
Honestly, I don't trust river or lake water even filtered and boiled. Viruses can survive that treatment, so I'll trust my well and it's 'thousand feet of sediment' filter, thank you.
Food:Can be cooked from our supplies during the first weeks, then gathered and cooked again by searching for it in homes/stores/vending machines etc.
This can be supplemented by hunting and fishing (Though, as I mentioned with the water, I'm worried about the possibility of fish carrying infection as well).
We will also begin a livestock program; raising and breeding deer, rabbit, cow, sheep, turkey, goat and chicken as livestock.
An enclosed greenhouse and an outdoor garden (fenced off and hidden) will be responsible for growing cultivated fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables will be supplemented by wild edibles.
What will you do for power?
My home is equipped with solar arrays. If we can manage to do it, they would provide us with some minor power capability.
Mainly I'll be focusing on two forms of power creation and storage, both based on renewable resources that, even after the EOTWAWKI, won't be scarce.
1. Creation and implementation of a Waterwheel & car alternator combination system that will charge large batteries. These batteries will connected to AC & DC adapters through which we can power tools, weapons, and important systems.
2. Creation and implementation of a similar system to #1 making use of wind rather than water.
3. An emergency backup system based on #1.
These systems will allow us to remain one step ahead of and perform actions faster and more efficiently than any threats to us.
We can power construction tools to effectively and quickly fortify our location (as well as use those tools as impromptu weapons).
We can modify or find already existing vehicles that use electric motors and power them with our charged batteries (or recharge their batteries) for renewable and defensible transportation.
With electricity, you can power medical equipment and life support systems you might otherwise not have.
Power capture, storage, and utilization has two major ups and downs:
First: You will eventually become a major outpost if you use this properly, and I can see in about 10 to 20 years your outpost becoming a capital of this infected world.
Second: You will draw a lot of attention if word gets out. This will draw raiders and possible undesirables into your midst. And if you draw in a lot of people or put up lights, Zombies too.
What’s my weapon of choice? Do you need to reload that thing? Gotta plan for that?
Until I find something better, I'll be using a Ruger 10/22 rifle with 2 clips interchangeable with a Sawed-off 12 gauge double barrel shotgun, a Walther P22 pistol with 3 clips, and a sheathe knife.
The rifle needs reloading every 30 shots with my main clip, and every 10 after that with my two secondary clips. The double barrel obviously has 2 shells at any one time, which I only have 100 shells for that. The pistol needs reloading every 10+1 shots/clip (I have 3). I have 1500 rounds of .22 ammo at the moment, but that probably won't last a year (I say a year because once I'm inside base I don't expect to have to use ammo except during supply runs which the amount of per week will be determined by consumption rate of supplies)
As for ammo restock, initially we will use all the ammo we find during supply runs. However, supply runners will be instructed that crossbows, compound bows, and any other lethal ranged weapons that do not use bullets are priority items.
Guns will be reserved for target practice, scavengers, and defense against other humans.
We'll also learn how to build recurve bows and crossbows and have daily practice and a huge stock of arrows/bolts for use made, repaired and restocked daily.
Am I willing to hook up with other survivors?
Yes, but only if they are mentally healthy and willing to allow one of my groups Medical officers (of the same sex and guarded by a security person) to check them EVERYWHERE for bites or signs of infection/sickness. Then they will be quarantined for ?* days to make sure they remain uninfected.
*(Quarantine length dependent upon what we know about infection.)
My proficient weapons:
Animals: (We might have enough room. I don't know if I could not take them + they're useful for hunting, riding, etc.)
2 Horses: (Link: AnArabian Pinto mix. Sunny: A Belgian Half-linger) put in the horse trailer.
3 Golden retrievers & a miniature schnauzer: Skip, Jenna, Bodie & Casper.
1 Cat: Dusty, a himilayan-persian mix
2 Blue & Gold Macaws, Choco & Bobo (The only thing is sometimes they yell REALLY LOUD for long periods of time. That's not good for keeping our position secret. We may just set them free)
My Ferret: Loki, I don't have him yet, but I'm going to train him and he will be a very skilled and clever little prick. I'll train him to stay in my hood or on my shoulder, and he'll sleep in a little custom backpack I made for him. He'll also trained to bring me things I point a laser dot at, which is very useful. I can see the whole, "send the pet to get the keys to the jail cell" scenario, now. Not to mention he'll be very funny, and very mischievious. He'd keep up morale just by being his usual idiot self.
2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins Diesel: The truck is the closest thing we have to an armored vehicle. It will haul our supplies initially to our target location, and our horses in the trailer.
Motocycles are both small and fast, allowing for tight maneuvering and tight fits. Mainly used as a scavenging or scouting vehicle, it can both outrun and outmaneuver cars and trucks, fitting down tight alleys and through roadblocks with ease (leaving raider pursuers behind). Fuel is gasoline, hard to find and valuable duringApocalypsescenarios, so likely only used for scouting purposes.
