A guitar makes noise! If it makes any while you hit the zombie, others might hear you!
Kevmus's totally realistic zombie plan (no one limited length, so...)
I see a zombie standing outside my bedroom window. If the zombie hasn't noticed me by now, I grab supplies listed below, in rough order of importance. I assume that an outbreak has started, so I open my bedroom door, look through the peephole in my front door and my front window.
Supplies before leaving home:
Wooden Baseball bat
Swiss army knife
Backpack (dump out the contents of my school bag)
Canned food, with can opener
Bottle of water
IF(I see no zombies on this side of the house, and everything seems calm and ordinary)
I grab my netbook and supercool portable printer
. I get in my car.
IF(I see a couple of zombies and there is some panic OR I see cars/obstacles on the road)
Curse under my breath. I get in my bike
I then make my way toward my nearest gun-toting friend, while calling him. (I live in a small town of appx. 20k people, assuming that the outbreak is relatively new, I should be able to get there safely, especially since he lives 10 minutes away by bike or much less by car. Otherwise, I'm screwed anyways)
He has a shotgun and a hunting rifle. I borrow one of his guns (whichever he prefers least), we grab some of his camping gear and we go southwest in either my car or his truck.
Western nebraska is pretty much plains, farms, and cows. We drive until we're close between Farnam and Moorefield (still in Nebraska, about a 9 hour drive avoiding major towns).
Appx. Populations of towns in our path: (only those with >500 people, the ones with <500 should be safe-ish)
Moorefield has a population of 52, Farnam has 233. I doubt we'll get many zombies from them, and the nearest populated town is Lexington (pop: 10000, 50ish miles away). We should be relatively safe once we get there for the night.
We call as many of our gun-owning friends as we can and tell them our relative location, important to do this before cell towers are down. I turn on my netbook and browse wikipedia and google for the 8 hour battery life during the night, printing everything useful in these categories (and whatever else I can think of):
Code: Select all
Category:Firearms by calibre
I also print out several nebraska maps and roadmaps.
Right as my battery is about to die, I change my facebook status to "Fighting for my life against zombies, BRB".
The next day, we've hopefully become a group of about 4-5, and we head southeast toward Fort Riley in Kansas. The only notable towns in our route have pops of 2000 and 1000, not too bad, and it's another 9 hour drive avoiding major towns.
Fort Riley is a major Army base, where our group of friends knows one of the soldiers there. We should be able to hole out there for a while, hopefully.
Otherwise, we'll probably die.
If anyone gets bitten, shoot the zombies then shoot him.
If I get bitten, eat a bullet.
If we see any survivors that we don't know:
Do they need immediate help? if so, can we help them with NO risk to ourselves? (Shooting 1 zombie from 100 feet away = safe. 5 Zombies is not safe). If so, then help them. If we have any risk to ourselves, it's not worth it, keep going.
If they don't need immediate help, keep going. We are not going to add anyone we don't know to our group - that's what leads to mistrust and friendly fire.
Rip this plan apart if you find any mistakes, you're only helping me live longer when the inevitable happens.
