About Me:When I started thinking way too much about zombies: June 8th, 2011
What started my zombie fixation: Well, it started with aliens...
Favorite zombie book: Not quite a zombie book, but it explores the same dark facet of human nature and depravity : Cormac McCarthy's The Road.
Favorite zombie movie: Wow, it is a terrible choice I will have to make between Zombieland and 28 Days Later.
Favorite quote in any zombie movie: "The first rule of Zombieland: Cardio."
My Survival Plan:My “handle” should you look for you on the radio waves or web: OldDogNewTricks
My location: The Shenandoah Valley
Is my plan dependent on zombies in your home town, or anywhere? Anywhere. At the first report of zombies, I will bug out.
Will I be staying in my home or headed somewhere else? Training to fade into the woods for as long as it takes for the zombies to starve to death.
If I'm heading out, how do I plan to get there? My two feet - there is real wilderness close by.
Got anyone I want to take with me? My wife and kids (safety in numbers)
How will I communicate with the outside world, or do I plan to go the hermit route? No need to communicate until the zombification virus burns out or there are just not enough people left to provide a significant disease vector. My bug-out bag does include items such as a hand-powered shortwave radio though.
How am I planning to get food and water? I am actively learning to forage, hunt, and do "survival gardening." It does rain quite often in my part of the world.
What’s my weapon of choice? Do you need to reload that thing? Gotta plan for that? A pump action twenty-gauge. Yes, I aware that this will bring much ridicule upon my head.
Got a survival philosophy? Survival of the Wittest
Am I willing to hook up with other survivors? Eventually, after the zombification virus burns itself out or there are just not enough people...
Is my plan based on a book/movie/blog/scientist other survivors may have heard of? It is based on as much research and as much "OK, that didn't work" trial, error and experimentation as possible. The movies help too.
