Helpful Links and Other sites:
I've taken the liberty of jotting down some links that those of you who view my page might like to go to. I've found the bulk of my information and inspiration on this site, but these others are informative as well. It's always good to have a number of resources. I also put it up here, instead of hiding it at the bottom, like a douche bag.
(if this doesn't work, type it in on google and you'll get the page)

I spend my sleepless nights, and sometimes my sleepless afternoons on the internet looking at zombie information. I've gone through countless sites, looking at a near infinite number of links, and there aren't very many helpful sites at all. When you find one like zombiesurvivalwiki, though, it makes it worth the effort. I've found a wealth of information on this site. It's also given me the confidence to seek out others who share my views. Though I've searched long and hard, this is, by far, the best site I've found. Thank you, zombiesurvivalwiki.
Also, whenever I get on, I check to make sure that none of the above links have changed, or been deleted or whatnot. If you go to one of the links, and it doesn't work, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org telling me. I'll make an emergency trip to an unblocked computer just for you, so I can fix the problem.
About Me:When I started thinking way too much about zombies:
Ever since I can remember. I used to play games on the housing district at the base where I'd pretend I was being attacked by zombies..
What started my zombie fixation:
I'm not sure. I've just always had a fixation on the idea of an outbreak of the undead.
Favorite zombie book:
I have a tie between the two that I've read: Max Brooks's Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z. World War Z is a very good read, but the survival guide is invaluable as far as survival parry and post Z-Day.
Favorite zombie movie:
A tie between Resident Evil 2: Apocalypse, and Dawn of the Dead, the remake.
Favorite quote in any zombie movie:
"'Cause I usually drive a Cadillac." L.J. from Resident Evil 2: Apocalypse
My Survival Plan:My “handle” should you look for you on the radio waves or web:
Round Mountain, NV/ Hawthorne, NV
Is my plan dependent on zombies in your home town, or anywhere?
I have a plan for both, both are flexible.
Will I be staying in my home or headed somewhere else?
Headed somewhere else, after a few
If I'm heading out, how do I plan to get there?
In a truck, if not, on a bike, if not, on foot
Got anyone I want to take with me?
I have several comrades
How will I communicate with the outside world, or do I plan to go the hermit route?
I'd like to bring a radio, and a cell phone, which will have to be ditched eventually, unless by eighteen consecutive miracles, the phones still work.
How am I planning to get food and water?
We've got MREs and canned water. That's right. Canned Emergency Drinking Water. Got a problem with that? We also have lots of stray cats, and quite a few wells.
What’s my weapon of choice? Do you need to reload that thing? Gotta plan for that?
I have two; a .30-30, and a machete on the end of an axe handle. Plenty of rounds for the rifle, and a sharpener for the machete.
Got a survival philosophy?
Move fast, think on your feet, and avoid a fight if possible.
Am I willing to hook up with other survivors?
Yup, and I'm willing to drop 'em if necessary.
Is my plan based on a book/movie/blog/scientist other survivors may have heard of?
Nothing in particular. I've read a lot of different things from multiple sources. One is the Zombie Survival Guide. I don't agree with all of it, but I still find it to be an
My Z-Day Equipment
I really don't have all that much in the way of equipment. I'm a dirt poor redneck living in a gllorified mining camp, more than fifty miles from civilization... so opportunities to get good stuff don't come along very often..
WEAPONS1 machete on an axe handle - longer reach, and it helped me get my master's in ethnic engineering
1 combat machete - made out of spring steel, has a 3/16 inch full tang. Heavy, and sharp. I'm pretty sure it's a Vietnam-era Clyde. The sheath has a built-in tungsten carbide sharpener.
3 pocket knives of various sizes - for self defense, various slicing, cutting and chopping activities, and to incorporate into weapons
1 hatchet/ multitool - for chopping nothing larger than small sticks. Has hatchet, hammer, saw, file, fish scaler, bottle opener, can opener, knife, flat head and Phillip's screw drivers
1 large steel file - for self defense, filing things, and sharpening my edged weapons
2 aluminum softball bats - for hitting things such as skin jobs
1 steel pipe - I can use it to pancrack, or brace a door, or some other nonsense
1 .30-30 lever action rifle - to kill just about whatever I want
1 semi-automatic .22 long-rifle - for shooting zombs and assorted small game
1 Jennings J-22 - Hey, I might need it for something, like throwing it...
"We have 12 of these shotgun shells, 26 of these ***** 9-mils, and 16 of those .357 magnums." Tucker, Dawn of the Dead
1 shovel - wood handled spade
I'm really hoping to buy an Mini 14 and a 1911.
1 green Wrangler coat - canvas shell, sheep's wool lining. Keeps me warm, and has taken dog bites
several camo coats in various sizes - for those who may prove useful, if they don't have anything to protect their hides already.
1 ankle length black denim duster - Protection against the flesh-eating hordes of the undead, coming up to my nose, and dropping to my ankles. Straps to legs, and, with practice, doesn't impede movement. I think I'm going to cut this off at the waist, if I use it at all.
1 pair ass-less chaps- so I can cut off the bottom half of my black duster
1 pair leather working gloves - keep me from cutting my hands and then getting blood in said cuts
1 pair Guide Gear hard-toe boots - I need to get some that don't have thinsulate in them. These make my feet sweat...
Mikey - He, Kenny and myself go out rabbit hunting a lot. Mikey's a great driver, and a pretty good shot to boot. He's also pretty easy to get along with.
Zach Mair - He doesn't look like much, but Zach is incredibly knowledgeable, and he's a great shot with his AK.
Chase Dustin - This is a very big man. He and I get along pretty well. Just looking at him when he's in a bad mood puts the fear of God into most. As far as I know, all he has is a double-bladed axe that I gave him, but he could probably turn anything into a weapon.
Kyl "Kill" Younglove - His nickname is Kill for a reason. He's even bigger than Chase, and he definitely knows how to throw his weight around. In a fight, he could probably pick a ghoul up by the ankles and use it as a club.
There are others that I would likely take with me when tshtf, but they aren't part of the team. If I get new members, I'll add them.
1 gold-ish SUV
1 large back pack w/ sleeping bag straps, and rifle/shotgun holster - for carrying the bulk of of my equipment, and my .30-30 when it isn't in my hand
1 gun cleaning kit - has the pieces to clean anything from .22 to .50 cal.
4 M.R.Es - good, nutrient dense food with the shelf life of a Twinkie. To be eaten post Z Day
1 lantern - for to illuminate the dark corners
1 mag lite - for the dual purposes of illumination and education
1 first aid kit - to take care of minor wounds
3 cans Emergency Drinking Water - if I can't find any other water, I'm bustin' these babies open. Slightly metallic taste
2 bags Top Ramen - more food
1 bag jerky - eating it helps keep me awake. (Learned the trick in my computer programming class)
1 compass - good for telling direction, and my uncle gave it to me
3 canvas belts - they've got all kinds of uses, and two of them have the hole things in them for the weird sheaths and holsters and whatnot.
I've had to fix my backpack twice now. Both times, I've used a mixture of fishing line, duct tape, and mild cursing..
