First zombie movie i watched was when i was seven, and that was "scooby doo on zombie island". Yes I know just a little kids show but i wanted to find out more about them, so I grabbed books and watched movies and thought of what I would do if the out brake started. Ever since then its been on, I have always been altering my plans according to what other people point out that I had not seen before. Now I know that no plan is perfect and it will only work for where I live, I at least know for a fact that I will survive, the being bitten part at least. Now for the basics, I am only nineteen so I am still just a bit young to try and survive on my own. I have friends and plans set up to help me with getting people to help. Weapons well, only the few guns that some of my older friends have along with the countless knifes, hatchets, axes and such. That though we will get to later. Most of my survival plans I thought up on my own and just started talking about, and people listened. There still rough and hard to explain unless you live around here, and could be very hard to take control of if people decide not to listen. There is robbing involved in my plan and also very delicate matters. Though of the fifteen people who said they would be on my side and help me out if it ever happened they all say that they would listen to me do not really know why since frankly im not the biggest one in the group nor the best for leadership. My survival plan is not going to be posted yet on here at least until I look around see other plans for Z-Day and see what others plans are. I also know mine is not the best and most likely has a lot of flaws still in it. I am going to post it just to make it better for the critique of other people and fix it to where nothing will happen to my family and friends. All I worry about is making sure we survive. I do live in Myrtle Beach South Carolina, so if you are from there and you read my survival plan, and think it will work or just want to come there for help your welcome to. My only advice to anyone is to survive.
Zombie Survival Plans:
Ok first stating i am not good at typing out my plans so it may not be the best written. I also do not know the wording for my plans, I just have it set up for what I am going to do. I live in Myrtle Beach South Carolina so the over all outcome of sucess depends on the season. I want people to read this and criticize before I post it in a thread, this is why there are still many mistakes in capitalizing all the I's and run on sentences. I fixed most of the grammar in it but I just want help making it where everyone can understand it or telling me new ideas or insert plans that may help me be more ready to survive. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read everything and then tell me where things may not work. Have fun.
When i first find out Z-Day is going down my first plan is to text everyone on my phone who knows my plan and who is helping out and telling them that its starting. From there the plan starts, most of my second family, as i like to call them, have a few guns. Mostly just pistols and a shot gun here and there so nothing major but enough to help us out. One of my brothers have a friend who owns the ammo shop around my area. So we can supply on the ammo while also raiding all the pawn shops around for there guns/knifes and other weapons. Me I collect many knifes and have a few swords even with my machete in my shed so that would be my main defense which is not that great. For the people who can not get away out of there house's but still are uninfected, I will tell them to get on there roofs and hold out there until me and my family can get there after raiding. By this point we will have at least raided the four different pawn shops for the weapons and survival supplies that they may have. Food and water I am not primly worried about yet because we would of grabbed what we have and loaded up in the trucks. We then commence on picking up everyone that we can that we can safely gather without slowing us down to much.
Ok lets say we now have everyone gathered up and all the supplies that we were planning on getting with the weapons and ammo. My point of location to get to Cosco, which is a large heavy based building that is a lot like Sams Club, with bulks of food and supplies. The reason I say where going here is because its location, right beside it not even a stone throw away, is a Home Depot. They also have the gas pumps outside for gas and the main power generators on the roof. If we have time before things get to bad, we will try to make a run to the Walmart that is nearby to get medication mostly and a few things that the group may think they need. For this run I would only take a group of five while putting my friend in charge. I know that there is so much that can go wrong with this plan but if i have to improvise when the day comes then I will. The reason I do not try to stay at my house is because most of my second family live in trailers that we can not barricade. So once we have all needed supplies gathered and have everyone in Cosco with the steel shutters shut and the reinforced door shut, we gather all people who may of been in there already. We make sure that no one is infected with the virus, checking the eyes, mouth and body for any signs. If all of this went smoothly then it should of only have taken two to three hours.
Once we know everyone is uninfected we have all the supplies that we have gathered and all the weapons, and short through them. We should have plenty of weapons with ammo for a long while plus melee weapons like knifes, machetes and axes. We will use the main office that also has a reinforced door and stock pile all the weapons in there except for a few pistols that people would have. If it was no one i trusted with my life then I would not allow them with a weapon at first of the survivors that we have gathered until I know how they will cope with everything. I just would not want anyone to try and kill everyone or to try and kill themselves from stress, this is the reason why I would not let them have a weapon at first. Before we even decide who would have weapons, we would also check all the medication that we got and medical supplies to know what we can handle that someone may get while in there. I know I am not worried about food or water at this point and time because of where I am now at, Cosco has enough food and bottled water to last up to two years with a hundred people give or take. My main goals for when I get there with all the weapons and survival supplies gathered up and put away is to barricade the steel shutters at the front to make sure that zombies can not get in through there. The back entrance which is the only other entrance is good on its own for the most part with the two bolt locks and metal bar that goes down. So that door is safe for the most part on its own.
After we have everything barricaded that needs it me and someone else will go onto the roof to check on how the generators are, while we do this I will also have someone watching the security cameras watching what is going on around outside and seeing what is going on in the store. From the roof me and my partner can also see how the zombie problem is going on, checking the blind spots and all. From the outside the only way onto the roof is a drop ladder that can only be dropped from the roof, so for the most part the roof is secure but even so the hatch will be padlocked shut from the inside. Now I am betting that most of you are starting to wonder why i know so much about Cosco and how the security works, I know all this because my best friend has worked there for four years now, and he used to take me with him to help him out on his job since all he had to do was restock the flowers and he was allowed to have one person help him. So with me coming and helping him all the time I got to know how everything works. He also has keys for everything now that he has become associate manager. So for this reason is why i know how everything works.
OK lets say at this point that we now have everything gathered up that we need the people are all inside and the people who need weapons now have them, we made sure everything was barricaded and made sure the generators were in working order for when we need them if we need them. Now this is not just all going to be on me its going to be groups working on different projects at different times because me myself of what i know for a fact i have fifteen people just with me, and i would also have it were if anyone went anywhere that they go in groups of three and work in groups of three. So doing all of this will take another hour or so considering on what problems may occur. If all is going to plan then it should only take a minimum of seven to eight hours to have everything made where we don't have fully worry about them getting in. When all of this is done we will make sure we have people watching the cameras for what may be going on we will also have the radios set up for and distress signals from other survivors. At this point I will try and get everyone to sit down except those watching the cameras, to sit down and just talk for a little bit. We will just talk about what is going on, what we may have to do with food and water if we are there for longer then should be, and helping anyone who may have problems coping.
When we are all done talking we will grab something to eat trying to use the stuff that goes bad first. Meaning the unfrozen meats and fruits and veggies. Also we will have the pizzas in the back that they sell to people because they go bad fast also. After that depending on the time we will find a place to sleep for everyone or watch the movies that they have on the TVs by pulling chairs up and everything. At least if its to late we will do that if not then we just go through what we still need to do. Also listen to others ideas that they have, main things we would still have to do is figure how to get the gas from the pumps into the building or to the roof for the generators. Get to Home Depot before things get to bad to raid for there supplies like solar panels, more generators, tools, pipe, wood, nails and such to help with barricades and making it where they can't get on the roof. We will have it where other survivors can get in or message us. Set up radio contact with a pre recorded message broad casting on many of the channels Am while also listening in to most of them.
This is my plan for the most part now there's more that goes into it all other then just this. I also know that a lot of this can change depending on what people are doing that first day. There may be people trying to raid the same stores that me and my group is, or people may not know whats going on yet so they may not just let us get what we need. Then there's a point on not taking in survivors that first week without fully checking them out because some of them may be infected and contaminate us all. Then there's a mater of not causing panic within the group that is already gathered at Cosco. And then all the little details of everyday problems and people trying to not listen or trying to leave. For at least twenty four hours I will have the back door unlocked but not open because it has a camera and can only be opened from the inside the camera shows on a t.v. right at the back door so I will put a sign at the front or hang to say go to back if your alive or something along those lines. Then there's making sure panic does not arise with in the store. Making sure that on the roof there's a sign saying survivors inside, have enough supplies, places to sleep. Makings sure a group is always keeping watch on, and that someone is always watching the cameras. I would have it set up where we could survive for about a year if no help was to arrive. Though once four months came around with no help is when i would start figuring out how to scrounge for food, trying to clear out zombies using easy made explosives. Using some of the gas and other supplies that you need to make napalm with, I will not state how to make it for the younger viewers, and pouring it down on the the zombies and lighting it to burn them. Just trying to clear out the crowds of them so we can get a small group out of at least five and to the truck. This would then be our scrounging group for food and supplies that we may need. There is so much that I can list but i just wanted to get it out there my first day or few day plans on what we would be doing. I know things would not be in that order, and they will always change according to whats going on and I can adapt the plans to what will happen in days to come.
I would like someone to help me out with maybe figuring out how to better word this, making it where it makes more since. Or make it where the plans are in better order, now i could bullet it and make it work that way. If i was to say it all in person then it would make more sense but like i said i am bad at taking my thoughts that make sense when i speak them or explain them in person, to make them make sense when i type them are two different things. So feel free to criticize and even help just leave me a message and I will read them and try to better explain it. Thank you for taking the time to read all of this and helping me out with the holes in my plans.
