Is my plan dependent on zombies in your home town, or anywhere?
Home town and surrounding areas.
Will I be staying in my home or headed somewhere else?
Headed to cousin's house for initial BOL.
If I'm heading out, how do I plan to get there?
Drive if roads are open, walk if no other options.
Got anyone I want to take with me?
Would try to convince a few close people to join me.
How will I communicate with the outside world, or do I plan to go the hermit route?
Will procede to BOL first and foremost and will try to establish communications when deemed appropriate.
How am I planning to get food and water?
Both in great supply at BOL. Area good for hunting and fresh water sources.
What’s my weapon of choice? Do you need to reload that thing? Gotta plan for that?
Mosin with scope. Rounds unreloadable. Stockpile.
Got a survival philosophy?
Being alive is a whole lot better than being dead.
Am I willing to hook up with other survivors?
Yes if I believe it to be in the best interest of survival.
Is my plan based on a book/movie/blog/scientist other survivors may have heard of?
BackgroundI spent my childhood pretty much growing up with my cousin. His home was out in the woods neighboring a small swamp and some ponds. We spent most of our time playing "redneck games", building spears, bows and other primitive technologies. As we grew older, our tastes matured into more modern weaponry, which led us to pick up blacksmithing as a hobby and forge our own knives and such. We were of the mindset, "If we cant afford to buy it, we can make it." This gave us a very good knowledge of metallurgy and through extensive(and sometimes painful testing) we quickly learned what was a viable option for useful weaponry as we also built trainer weapons to practice with each other.
At the same time, we were either target shooting with various firearms and testing the effectiveness of different loads and calibers or out fishing. Targets at our disposal varied as much as our firearms. Heavy duty oil filters, wood and steel doors, deep sea fishing weights(bout the size of large eggs) and random other targets(ie...Furbee's, McDonald's toys).
Fishing trips included line, bow and spear. We self taught ourselves bow and spear fish with items we fabricated ourselves. Through trial and lots of error, we managed to become decent at what we did. It was a very unique childhood that I would not trade for anything.
After High School, I joined the Army as a Field Artilleryman. Once I completed basic training and AIT at Ft. Sill, I was shipped to 1/3 ACR HWB in Ft. Carson, CO. Shortly after I arrived, I was issued a M16 with a 203 mounted and we started training exclusively at the MOUT site. We also trained in mounted and dismounted patrols. Quickly, we became the "Jack of all Trades" within our unit, as we could preform our job and the jobs of other MOS's with equal success. This training proved to be more than useful during our deployment to North Westen Iraq.
My favorite part of my time in was the access and training that I received in regards to firearms and medical skills. I took all but the M9 and 240B to the range and scored in the upper percentile. My best moment, was with the M107 Barret .50. With our units Sniper as my spotter, I managed to run from the 300m target out to the 1k without a miss using an off centered scope(he had just gotten the day or so prior so it was pretty much right out the box). This included a 800m head shot and 5/6 for the 1k. Sad thing was, my performance got me a nod to go to sniper school, but I was rejected by my command because it was deemed I was "too tall".
Leaving the service, I returned to SC and continue to research and practice various survival methods and still train(as long as my wallet will let me) with my cousin. Not much has changed since my childhood, except we have more quality firearms and more practical knowledge on their operation.
