|Trailspice||Trailspice's survival plan||17||Feb 26 2013, 10:13 AM EST by Trailspice|

I have a fairly basic "bug in" plan. My house is in a rural area of VA on a small dirt road in between two hills with fairly steep sides, about halfway up the side of one. There is about 12 acres of former pasture land above my house and my water comes from a spring so even without power I can walk 16 feet from my house and fill up a bucket.
Phase 1 of my plan is getting myself and as many people as I can to my BIL, if I get lucky and I'm home when it starts I will initiate a phone tree and where necessary/ safe mount extraction missions to retrieve a few friends. If I'm at work/ school/ where ever else I will get home as fast as possible and try to pick up a few people along the way.
Once I and whoever made it to my place are assembled we can organize tasks such as lookout, cooking, cleaning, hunting, etc based on skill sets and how much man power is available.
Long term my goal is to have the ability to reestablish a human population which is why I am planning on taking the extra risk to have a few sets of overies available, lone wolf survival might be the easy way to go, but I'm not really trying to live a long and unreproductively successful life.
As far as sustaining myself and fellow survivors goes, I have water in abundance (my spring has yielded water continuously for 100 years) and I am developing a small, very basic food supply, whenever I go to the store I get some rice and dried beans, my goal is to have 20-40 kg of each. Beyond rice and beans I usually have about a weeks worth of food for my self on hand and the woods and stream withing sight of my house are full of delicious creatures.
For defense/ hunting I have a .380 ACP, a 20ga shotgun,, a semi auto .22 rifle, a Springfield 1903, a .50 cal muzzle loader, a 60 lb compound bow with 10 arrows, and numerous bladed weapons.

I am 16 years old. Since I live in England, firearms are out of the question. I own a 7" bladed hunting knife and a sturdy, birch-wood baseball bat. I own nothing that could destroy a staircase without risking injury to myself or without destroying the tool at hand. At the bottom floor, there are 8 kitchen knives, including one very long (10") knife and a meat cleaver, although I have no intention of using them. My plan is that, when I inevitably either hear the screams of the dying, the moans of the undead or even just a dire news report, I will gather up what canned food and bottled water I own, and put them in a backpack. I will then call my mother and tell her to drive to Stowe woods (a huge forest in the middle of nowhere). My brother has been previously briefed on this plan, and so knows to return home if an outbreak hits.
My grandmother lives just down the road, but I am undecided on what to do about her (which is why I am posting this plan, for help with this part) . I will have the baseball bat while my brother has the knife. We will set off on the road to the forest, which I have walked along many times and I am used to. The road passes through no towns apart from a couple farms. When we reach Stowe, we will wait for my mother, maybe calling her a couple of times, then when she arrives we will enter the forest. There is, very deep in Stowe, a long-abandoned log house, which is situated on a huge, incredibly steep hill.
The reason we can climb it, and have climbed it, is because we use both our hands and feet, due to the sheer angle of the hill. When we reach the top, we will begin fortifying the log house. We will spend a night or two there, then I will set out to my father's house, around 2-3 miles away, through more country lanes. He owns many useful tools, such as axes, hammers, nails and other classical farming tools. At him house, I also have a .177 1250 fps air rifle, capable of hunting small game with ease.

I've thought for quite a while about what I would do if placed in a Z-day situation. I work at a news station as a live truck operator/videographer so anytime something big hits within 60 miles, I get a call. Usually, by the time something "breaking" is happening, I've known for at least 30 minutes. Hopefully this will give me a bit of an edge over the average person.
When Z-day hits I'm headed straight home. I endured the NE blackout of 2003 and as such have made plans in case any other such situation arises. Most of the preparations also coincide with my Z-Day plan. At home I have a ACU Molle duffel bag filled with supplies for a single person for about 2 weeks perhaps longer if rationed. I've got a little over 2 gallons of drinking water, granola, rice, pinto beans, and trail mix. as well as a 2 bottle of flintstones vitamins (i like what I like). Once I've got my stuff loaded into my car, I'm headed to my second job. I work part-time at a video production house with about a dozen co-workers. The nice thing is out audio booth is virtually impenetrable. The walls, floor and ceiling are all concrete (to deafen sound) and the door is a airtight metal door about 5" thick. The room has its own ventilation system to prevent hearing air noise, and while has no lock (air tight seal is quite strong) it can be boarded shut with the simple 2x8 I keep under my bed. Our office only has 1 entrance and 3 exits, so once I secure the audio booth as my shelter, I should be able to clear out the rest of the office and fortify it to give me a bit more room. I plan to stay here for at least the first 3 days to let the crazy people kill each other off. Being that I am the only person in my office without kids, I don't imagine once the outbreak occurs anybody else will come back to the office.
