About Me:When I started thinking way too much about zombies: I decided to write a book.
What started my zombie fixation: Dawn of the Dead
Favorite zombie book: World War Z
Favorite zombie movie: Outpost
Favorite quote in any zombie movie: "Mom, Phillip is dead." "What? No he isn't."
My Survival Plan:My “handle” should you look for you on the radio waves or web: Deacan or Potus ("Po-tus"..not "Pot-us")
My location: Myrtle Beach, SC
Is my plan dependent on zombies in your home town, or anywhere? Everywhere
Will I be staying in my home or headed somewhere else? Can't be staying here.
If I'm heading out, how do I plan to get there? Cause I don't wanna be glowing green... Away for Nuclear Power plants
Got anyone I want to take with me? Everyone!
How will I communicate with the outside world, or do I plan to go the hermit route? Using any means nessisary, I will establish contact with anyone any way I can. Radio, cell, C.B., walkie talkie, smoke signals, I'll even cans with strings.
How am I planning to get food and water? Besides the obvious bottles of water, boiling, and purification tablets, there is the steel bowl method, which even works on salt water. Basically you take the biggest steel bowl as you can find. Most mothers use these to mix cookie dough in or something. You then build a fire and boil water in a pot. Above the pot, you have the bowl about 2 inches, hovering so it is collecting all the condensation. The water will condense on the bowl and drip down from the bowl into gathering pots situated for water runoff. While my explaination of this is generalized, you get the concept.
Food is easy. Other than the expiring mountains of food, the world will be your oyster. And after years and years of college, I know that a person can live on Ramon noodles nearly forever. The question is, what would you do for a Klondie once the Z-day starts?
What’s my weapon of choice? Do you need to reload that thing? Gotta plan for that? I am most likely the one person on this site that has extensive training in Melee combat with ancient weapons like the Mace, Bola, Alavarda, Sword, and others, and I can tell you with one hundred percent assurity that anyone who says they are going to go rolling out with there katana to go cut some Zed butt has absolutely no clue what they are talking about. First off, the physical strength needed to sustrain your body for the full range of motion for an extended period of time that would take out even just 10 zeds is extreme by the standards in which most americans live now adays. And second off, good luck finding that Katana kid. The headshop down the street that sells those hundred dollar knock-off just sold you a hunk of junk that is going to break after 4 whacks. Now that is out of the way, I would say the most realistic (cause it would be nice if everyone could have M-16s) and reliable weapon to get is a simple Glock. Easy to reload, decent clip, and light wieght. The only thing is that a gun shot can be heard for miles around. Only use guns while there is absolutely no other alternative, or you have a method of suppressing the noise. Otherwise, you will foolishly be trying to kill one zeds, and find yourself surrounded by hundreds, if not thousands.
Got a survival philosophy? Save everyone!
Am I willing to hook up with other survivors? Now when you say "hook-up"?
Is my plan based on a book/movie/blog/scientist other survivors may have heard of? Give me till the end of next year and you can buy my book.
My score and score summary on the http://www.helloquizzy.com/tests/zombie-survival-and-defence-test: Zombie Hunter:You scored 88% Survivability, 100% Knowledge and 83% Fighting! You are a Zombie Hunter! Not only will you be killing zombies left and right, but other survivors will be looking up to you for guidance and assistance. Congratulations!
First off, Let me say that it is great that ya'll are here and this website is up to allow everyone to actually talk about a problem in a positive and constuctivly critisized way. It has always been the downfall of previous generations, from ancient Romans to Modern Americans, that when a problem is discussed, there is a right and a wrong. A yes way and a no. A "Your a genious" to a "What an idiot!" Not here. I have not seen one comment yet where someone is being negitive about people suggestions. No matter how "unique" they are, I have not heard one person tell the other that on an evelutionary basis, we would be better off without them, or something to that effect. I Thank you for that.
Now, one night while writting out my latest survival manual (which is honestly my real life job...Yes someone does this for a living), I got bored and watched a zombie movie called the Dawn of the Dead. This got me thinking that a Zombie survival manual would be a great idea, but I pushed it to the back of my mind for afew years. Then while at a convention in Dallas afew years back I heard of everyone heres savior "Max Brooks". Now due to the fact I am from another generation from the rest of you, I was more interested in the fact that the son of the maker of Blazing Saddles was writting a comedy survival guide than anything else. Then I read it. What a great book. But there was much to be lacking. So, in an effort to better prepair the world, or possibly just save one person, I have spent the last two years of my life researching as much as I could. Due to the fact I am writting this novel and possible copy right infrindgements, I won't be able to post a copy of my book on here, Though I am sure something could possibly be worked out later in the future with the admins of this site. But what I will be able to do is participate with ya'll in scenerios, and help you all better prepair for a class 4 invasion.
Now, here are afew things to consider. First off, get away from nuclear power stations. You all live in governments that have built these ticking timebombs that were made by the lowest bidder. You know why three-mile island happened? Cause two tiny lightbulbs had blown, and the warning lights didn't happen. And for those of you who don't think three-mile island was a big deal, find out what happened in Chernobyl, then we can talk. http://www.insc.anl.gov/pwrmaps/is where I found this map and there are tons more that are alot more detailed that you can view of nuclear power station locations.
Keep in mind you only have one life. One shot. You don't wanna lose it cause some loser at the power station didn't do his job and flip the switch to turn off the pumps cause he was eaten. You need to be out of these areas in afew hours. Atleast 300 miles away atleast. When Chernobyl went, the radioactive cloud carried as far as The United Kingdom. And that was just one plant going boom. There are 79 in the United States alone. If only 5% of them are unable to fight off the zombies long enough to shut it down, your looking at a very tiny america left that is safe to live in. Here is a hint. It is the only state that starts with an H. So, Just something to think about. Maybe the place you are ins't so safe due to the fact there are fifteen nuclear powerplant near you. At that point you might wanna consider a bug-out plan, compaired to someone who only has one of them in the general area of them, and feels reasonably safe. They also give guided tours of these places, so go and take a field trip. Check things out for yourself.
Also, God be with us if animals turn. In RE, crows, dogs, and bunnies are turned into man eatting creatures from the darkness. Imagine trying to kill a "Zombie Cheeta". Can run at 60 MPH, turn on a dime with thier tail, and never gets tired. There are also other animals like Zombie Kamoto Dragons, Zombie Fire Ants, Zombie Flying Squarels, and Zombie Hamsters. Though, the last one could come in handy. Think about it. You can very easily power a generator by hooking it up to a bike or a windmill. Why just not grab afew cute little hamster, take some infected blood, jerry rig a hamster wheel to a gear that turns a generator, and infect the little bugger with it, ofcourse keeping it in the wheel by putting thick plexy glass on both sides of the wheel, and putting blinders up so he only sees what is infront of him, so he will run that way. Now I know this seems inhumane, and just mean, but with that little guys sacrifice, will give you power in what ever room you walk in cause as soon as you walk in a room, that little HZ (Hamster Zombie) will start running on that wheel to try to get you, which infact turns the wheels, and bingo, (ofcourse simplified alot) you got electirity. Just throwing out some wacky and crazy ideas.
One last bit of advice before I go. After reviewing nearly every survival plan ya'll have put up, I only came afew that actually held back on the weapons they were rolling with. These days will be the begining of the end, not the end itself. I would suggest holding back on writting that your going to be rolling out with a military grade sniper rifle that you googled cause it looks cool, when in all likelyness, your not going to ever touch one atleast well after z-day. Keep your plans realistic. I seriously doubt that 90% of you have MRE's in your house. What you do have is PB&J, and there is nothing wrong with saying your busting out the jiffy for the first day of the invasion. Heck, you won't have power for very long anyways, so make hot pocket and be proud of it. But the point is that you should focus on what you can make and build now that is orginal and new. Learn how to make a potato launcher since your most likely not going to find a grapling gun...ever. Since they don't make chain-mail anymore, go to wal-mart, buy a bunch of keychains, and make a suit of chain-mail. Post the picture on here, and I guarentee you everyone will think your thier hero. Or that you are the one that took thier keys.
Can't wait to hear from you guys, and good luck. Any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
