Colony info is at the bottom.
Tell us:Is your plan dependent on zombies in your home town, or anywhere?
(start typing here...)
not especially, unless they START in NJ then im fucked
SHORT TERM PLAN
I will head to my friend's upstairs condo on the other side of town, this will be described later.) in the initial stages of theoutbreak, for example, if an outbreak is not within 600 miles of me, i won't leave. However most people will leave (ex The Great Panic in WWZ). Most people will underestimate the zombie threat, and leave their gardening stuff, computers, furniture ETC. We will loot the shit out of any uninhabited homes, taking furniture for wood, and stripping the house for building materials, you never know what will come in handy. I will also make a run to the Hardware store (most people will get building supplies, i will get gardening material) and Krauser's on the way. Once we are all stocked up, my team will raid the recycling center, loads of scrap-metal, newspapers for (some) entertainment, and various other important materials will beplentifull, and face it-who else would think of going to the recycling center?
Phase 2 (2 weeks in)
On the roof of the condo complex we will designate 1 area to a crop garden and 1 to catching rain. We will also expand into other condo's by breakingdownthe walls of this condo, the other condos are similar, and with thedestructionof the stairs we can expand and make life more comfortable, eventually we will take over another complex asanother"colony" (see later). We will continue like this for as long as possible after a wile we will enter the long term portion.
LONG TERM PLAN
When the zombies inevitably come to the town en masse, my team and I will drive 2 cars to the other side of town. On the first car we take out the gas tank and douse the street. We make a bigclamorand drive ahead of them, (we will not use guns, the noise will just attract more zombies and we willconservebullets for asiege or raiders.) when we get to a safe distance beyond the gasoline line, we will light it on fire, the zombies will walk right through, we will take a route around them back to the base. The zombies will attempt to follow, but will eventually burn up, hopefully running into some cars and houses and destroying that portion of town ( acts as a raider deterrent). We will repeat as necessary.
As we get more people (refugees possibly other survivors who are down on their luck, we will make them completely loyal through military-style training) We will strip apart one house and use those materials to build a bridge to the next complex (aprox 30 feet away) and do what we did to this one like what we did to the second one. We will seal off the entrances to the complex (4 that i know of) with cars and scrap metal walls (thank you Waste Management!) the central portion of the complex is a garden, we could pull out the flowers, and make a second garden.
Phase 3 (winter)
We will rely on dried food and stores of canned goods. From December through early march, thetemperaturesare usually freezing or below (who needs Canada?) so we can mostly destroy the zombie threat (they will be frozen) and live in peace. We will also send out search parties for other survivors (on foot or bike) and attempt to trade with them and remain in contact through the spring/summer/fall. If we find raiders we will go intolock down until the threat has passed. By this time i am planning for 20-30 people in my encampment. We will also search for people who died from the cold or other causes, and take weapons/ammo. We will also gather up the dead plants and make a bonfire to melt/boil snow for clean water.
Phase 4 (spring)
This could end up either one of two solutions, either we run out of something and stop growth and migrate or join another group of survivors
OR we keep on growing (50-100members), eventually outgrowing the complex. Then we scout two of the schools in my town. Both are the the same, but laid out differently. EMS located at the southern end of the town is a 15 minute walk/10-5 minute run orpreferably MHS which is a 10 minute walk, but it is more dangerous because of less open space. Either one would be ok, as we make our way to theschoolwe secure th route by eliminating ALL of the zombies on the way (includingthose in houses it will take a while) and parking cars, buildingpalisadesalong the curbs on either side of the street, we will connect the gas tanks to strings, and connect those all at a central point, that wy if something goes awry we blow up all of the zombies/raiders.
Phase 5 (summer)
we secure the school by sending labor teams to destroy the stairs/barricadethe entrances/windows by taking apart our seat-desks and putting the incredibly tough desktops on to the windows ETC. We use the desk legs as a surplus weapon supply. If we have a few enough amount of people, everyone will live upstairs, if not the classrooms (built to withstand bombs and shit ever since the school was rebuilt) will be living quarters for the newest refugees. I would assume that all of the food/water would be looted, however, for water collection we will clog up the roof-gutters and make the roof a giant pool, however, we will designate 3 people to put the water incontainersfor boiling. the football/trackfieldhas a watch-tower thingy, and is fenced in by agiant10ftchain-link fence on all sides. This will provide entertainment and a good look out for the fortress. As for food, there is a giganticfieldthat we could put our shit in (if we eat mostly home-grown food, it should act as normalfertilizer, right?) This area will be fortified with part of the chain-link fence that does not protect anything (basically it surround part of theAstroturfsoccerfield, but not all of it, plusAstroturfis useless) and anything else we can find, this will be the main food producer for mycolony. All surplus food is to be dried and kept upstairs in containers (so rats won't get in). This farm will be the most heavilyguardedpart of the colony, 20/100guardswill take shiftsguardingit day and night. 5/20 will be using rifles (I'm no gun expert, will update when i gain some knowledge) to protect our most valuble area.
Phase 6 (entire next year)
Growth may or may not continue and as long as all goes well, we might attempt to dig a well, for a more reliable source of water. If zombies do get in we will lure them to where the stairs used to be and spear them in the head with farming tools until they are all dead. If we are overrun, i will tell the officials (2 of my friends from before Zday) to lead the refugees (and in turn zombies) to the route built earlier. they will make a final stand, one of my friends will light the string and run, killing all of our MHS settlers and zombies and burning part of the town to the ground, because the original compound would not be able to support them and they would starve to death. After that, we start where we did in Phase 3.
Phase 7 (next year and beyond)
Once we really star to grow we will take back the town, fortify some houses along the route from Compound to MHS by destroying stairs and boarding up. Then we will cut down trees for lumber and connect the houses by bridges, and vuala you have a suburban endor. As the colony expands we might reach up to 300 members, from here see the colony shit at the bottom.
If you're heading out, how do you plan to get there?the gas tank/string thing is from someone else i cant remember. The zombie survival guide gave me some inspiration (the whole school thing) other than that i think it's all original
Only to get to MHS, we will walk.
Got anyone you want to take with you?
6 good friends, knowing my parents, they would underestimate the threat and be among the first victims, but i would try to take them with me.
How will you communicate with the outside world, or do you plan to go the hermit route?
Scouts will be sent outsporadically toscavenge/search for survivors, every time we will go a little further. I will monitor radio for as long as possible. However if this is truly the "zombiepocalypse" i will attempt to censor my colony from any reminders of the past. This will make starting over easier.
How are you planning to get food and water?
We will collect rainwater and attempt to dig a well. As for food we will hunt small game (rabbits squirrels and birds) and grow crops on the rooftops, and dry out all surplus. During the winter months we will live off of a large supply on non-perishables and dryvegetables. All food will be strictly rationed, even during the summer, because disaster can strike at any time.
What's your weapon of choice? Do you need to reload that thing? Gotta plan for that?
Crowbar, .22 hunting rifle,Molotov's(for raiders), scouts and some guards 5 on the farm, 5 in the condo compound will be armed with the best weaponsavailable. Every citizen of MHS will have a 3-foot long metal desk leg on their person at all times.
Got a survival philosophy?
Are you willing to hook up with other survivors?
Is your plan based on a book/movie/blog/scientist we may have heard of?
Economy- how peole make money, spend it, trade?
Government- a Republic, Anarchy, Dictatorship?
Housing- How will you house people no one wants to sleep where zeds can eat them?
Military- How will you protect your people?
Farming and Water-Plans on farming and getting clean water?
Workforce- How will Distrubute your work force?
I figure the people could trade freely amongst themselves in a barter system, because we are focusing on survival gold/coins/dollars, would be detrimental to society, because people would amass large amounts of wealth and power, which couldthreaten my government.
The colony would be small enough that i would act as king, and my friends would be advisors. The townspeople would all elect representatives to tell me their problems/ideas every month. Every region would elect 2 representatives every month who i would work with to solve problems.Housing
The condo complex will serve as housing for new members like a zombie-killing boot camp, the school will house my friends and i and a majority of the population. The cleared out houses will be home to members of society who were hardened zombie killers before coming to my colony,basicallynon-refugees.
