I came across this site after becoming interested in serious disaster preparation.
Oh, look, I wrote a story!
View my Bug-out Riflecase here:
Favorite zombie movie: Zombieland
Favorite quote in any zombie movie: Today, a Vortec six ******* liter V8, a box full of hollow points, and Lord willing a G.D. Twinkie.
My Survival Plan:My “handle” should you look for you on the radio waves or web: toxic shock, Steve, i don't know.
My location: I hail from Green Bay, Wisconsin!
Is my plan dependent on zombies in your home town, or anywhere? If zombies are closing in on the city, I will bug out to a farm north of town.
Will I be staying in my home or headed somewhere else? Depends. Staying if not under constant attack, or bugging out to the north if not safe, then finding a new base as the population thins out.
If I'm heading out, how do I plan to get there? The T.E.S.T. or Tactical Extreme Survival Tahoe. The T.E.S.T. started life as a 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe 4x4, one of the last years for the 5.7 liter Vortec 350 V8.
Initial upgrades consisted of a full set of hand tools, small spade, tow rope, come-along, Black Ice airfreshener, maglite, and an M.S.B. or Miniature Survival Bag. The M.S.B. holds emergency rations such as beef jerky and hard candy, bottled water, duct tape, particle masks, gel stove, multitool, sweatshirt, gloves, survival blanket, poncho, and more.
The above photo was taken after the tactical brushguard and blackout lighting set was installed. The blackout lighting was needed for a more tactical appearance (Duh!). The CB is now installed as are the 17" wheels, wrapped with Wrangler AT/S rubber.
Alternate Transport: My Sex Panther expired. So I replaced a full-frame, rear wheel drive, V8 luxury car with the exact opposite:
Its a 2007 Baccio 49cc moped! Its been laid down multiple times, evidenced by lots of cracked and missing plastic. Its a 2 stroke, which leaves clouds of smoke in its wake. Best of all, it gets 70+ MPG and it cost $400! God forbid I have to take this thing over my T.E.S.T. on Z-Day, though...
If either of my vehicles must be left behind or become unusable, I will call the C.A.B. That's the Combat Assault Bicycle, a $20 craiglist-sourced, 18-speed mountain bike. No gas? No problem! You didn't really think I was going to call a taxi, did you?
Got anyone I want to take with me? Not really, my friends laugh at my zombie paranoia. If there were an actual threat, I have friends up north and one across town.
How will I communicate with the outside world, or do I plan to go the hermit route? The T.E.S.T. is equipped with a CB. Alternate communication might involve smoke signals or carrier pigeons. I'm also working on a northeast Wisconsin RVE. PM me if you have any ideas.
How am I planning to get food and water? I have small reserves of canned and freeze dried food and bottled water. My B.O.B. has water purification tablets. After my reserves are depleted, I will fish, hunt small game, or boost it from wherever I can.
What’s my weapon of choice? Do you need to reload that thing? Gotta plan for that?
Battle rifle - Yugo 59/66 SKS
Comabt shotgun - Mossberg 500 JIC .
Primary Pistol - Taurus 1911
Alternate Pistol - Taurus 608
CC/Backup Pistol - Bersa Thunder 380
Combat Blade - Ontario Fighitng Knife.
Combat Machete - Ontario 18" D-handle.
Pocket Blade - Gerber Presto 3.0
Extra Weapons (for loaning to unarmed survivors)
Marlin 12 gauge pump
Yugoslavian M57 Tokarev
Mosin Nagant M38
Swiss Schmidt-Rubin K31
Marlin Model 70HC
Marlin 336 .35 Remington
I try to keep 500 rounds of ammo in each caliber in reserve for pistols and rifles, and 100 rounds of 12 gauge buckshot on hand.
Future weapon purchases include:
WASR-10 AK47 or converted Saiga
Got a survival philosophy?
As a maverick, I follow the three rules of being a maverick:
Rule 1: Don't play by the rules.
Rule 2: There are no rules!
Rule 3: Actions speak louder than words.
Am I willing to hook up with other survivors? Sure, if they can handle themselves. Or are really hot.
Is my plan based on a book/movie/blog/scientist other survivors may have heard of? My ideal survival situation would be like in Zombieland, where I can steal a black Escalade and cruise the country. And not have to worry about electricity because the power is still on for some reason.
My Everyday Carry:
Gerber Presto 3.0
Bersa Thunder .380 w/2 extra mags loaded with 102gr Golden Sabers
Cellphone with belt holster
