A Little About Me
First of all, I will list a bit of my qualifications here for all to see, because I'm tired of repeating myself every time I pick apart someone's plan and they tell me I don't know what I'm talking about.
I am a certified ASE Master Technician A with full systems endorsement. I am a certified Diesel and Heavy equipment technician. I spent over two years studying the mental and physical areas of Disaster Survival, including an intensive training program in the mountains of Colorado and the deserts of Nevada. I have a certification in Agriculture and extensive weapons, combat, and martial arts training. I have a HAM radio license, and used to have a CCW permit before I moved to the Kommunist State of Kalifornia.
I have been interested in apocalypse survival for many years now. Not specifically zombies, but anything life threatening: natural disasters, terrorist strikes, etc. I have started my own Disaster Survival website, which is based more in reality than this site. It is also a great resource for information regarding survival kits, stocking up, and proper gear. United Disaster Survival Alliance
I definitely enjoy good zombie fiction but I really do believe the concept of a "Zombie" is plausible. While I do not hold any faith in the "dead being able to rise" I do believe some genetically modified virus or other contagious pathogen could cause violent and irrational behavior in humans, resulting in zombie-like symptoms. I use the metaphor (and possible reality) of a Zombie Apocalypse to make preparing for any disaster more entertaining and socially acceptable.
In the world we live in, we should be aware that disaster can strike at any moment. A good survival plan and supplies will be the difference between life and death when society begins collapsing around you. Why prepare for zombies? Not only is it fun, but you follow the motto of "Prepare for the worst, hope for the best." If you can survive a zombie apocalypse, you can survive anything.
My Survival Plan
Above all, stay organized. All the supplies and weapons in the world are sh!t without preparation and organization.
My Survival Cave:
As you can see, I've got a bit more than a BOB.

A Note For The Forums (Discussion Threads)
The best way around the profanity filter is to use Latin characters. Use the following vowels: the filter won't recognize them and therefore won't block the word:

If you think your plan is perfect, it isn't. If you act like a childish moron, expect to be treated like one. If your only defense to criticism is whining like a *****, you won't last long. - Me.
The most common example given by the losers that enjoy the text talk, misspelling, bad grammar, etc. is that it "saves time" correct?
Well, first of all, that just means you're lazy. Secondly, YOU ARE ON A ZOMBIE SURVIVAL WEBSITE. You are obviously not here for school or work. You have no deadline, nothing else to do, and nowhere better to go. So what is the big hurry? What do you plan to do with the ten seconds you save by ignoring spellcheck as well as most of the keys on your keyboard? So if you are in such a rush to get off this site, then in my humble ******* opinion, you can stay off. - Me
General advice for all new users: don't feel you have to rush in here, dick swinging and balls blazing. A simple hi, how's it going. Ask a few questions. - PedroAsani
Because on this board, dead does not mean dead. It means "dead". Which can have a whole wide ranging description, such as "an apparent state of death that is actually closer to a comatose state and indistinguishable by even trained medical personnel". But that is a bit long to write every time, which is why most people just say dead. - PedroAsani
If you have no experience, then it's not a combat plan, It's a plan on how to feed yourself to zombies. A combat plan is useless without a survival plan, Your not gonna wander around shooting indefinitely after z-day. We all plan on combat, but you have given a plan to be Rambo(and half assed at that.)
Many of the members of this site are ex- and current military and law enforcement(myself included). We discourage these kind of threads and statements because not only are they pipe dreams, they are a little insulting. We train(ed) and train(ed) to be warriors, and some teenage pipe dream about just picking up a .45 and being John Woo kinda says we aren't doing it right.
Seriously, if you had some kind of experience in this area you would have never even posted this.
You want to talk about combat only? OK here goes: It's a grenadier number one, not a freaking bomber, that's a plane. Your weapon choices are subpar and colored by pop culture. Do some research, do you have any clue about the magazine sizes available for a glock 21?What kind of rounds will you use? What about the AR, what round does it chamber? what is the effective range? How large a mag can you get for it?
The list goes on and on. We are here to have fun, not be subjected to stupidity. - DLOWTHEMAD
Everybody, get the **** over yourselves.
Stop complaining about every simple thing that anybody says that you disagree with, or in particular that offends your tender sensibilities, and cease with the throwing of the hissy-fits.
It has reached the point of being quite annoying, so please just shut up or stay on topic.
Read that again: Shut up or stay on topic.
Military people, while I understand the way you feel, get over yourselves and go vent your woes somewhere else.
Non-military people, no longer claim to be military people. It's annoying as hell.
Everyone in general, if you have nothing constructive to add to the thread, and no, that doesn't include your thoughts on each others' intelligence, then please refrain from saying anything.
Do not brag, do not make erroneous claims, do not whine, do not post anything along the lines of "You know that's right," do not troll (Wikipedia), and, people, Don't Feed The Trolls.
We're turning into an even more childish version of 4Chan here.
So please, sit down, shut up, stay on topic, get over yourself, and don't take everything so personally.
- Thanks for Drewblet for this insightful piece.
If I held the Desert Eagle to my head and started pulling the trigger, I would most likely miss each time causing me to run out of ammo. - AlexHigginbotham
Every once in a while we get these "I'm King of the Internet" kids who are rather shocked to find that people exist out there that really do know more than them. When their lies are finally uncovered, they quit the site in a huff but continue to send threatening last messages, always hoping to get the last word.
Most of the time, these underage posers end up threatening us with a relative when they realize that they do not frighten us.
Nothing new. And not even just on ZSDW. This isn't my first internet leadership position ya know.
O'Doul, I love community. If you can behave and join our community, I would welcome you back. However, you will ignore all the advice given to you and continue your weary path to adulthood. Good luck.
