It’s always important to have a bug out bag, no matter your situation, but today I want to talk about a specialized kit for the zombie apocalypse. Find a day bag to use as your bug out bag container, then fill it with the following. Water – Pack water purification tablets and filtration, so you can drink on the move, also bring at least 2 quarts of water per person per day. Food – Pack roughly a three day supply per person, bring food bars, MRE, and dehydrated food packs. First Aid – In my B.O.B, I have a LIFELINE TRAIL LIGHT 3, good for hiking and the zombie apocalypse. Other – Pack firecrackers for a quick distraction, if you ever get trapped a top a building or in a tree, just light and throw. Bring Headlamp, Multi-tool, hunting knife, fire starter, local map, duct tape, and rope.
I hope this helped you start your kit, now just add regular things and you should be ready for the apocalypse in a pinch.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some Bug Out Bags to get ready.
During the Zombie Apocalypse, it may be tempting to start some kind of dictatorship, but I think it’s best to set-up an appointed leader by the rest of the group. Maybe their would be a council who would vote on the matters at hand.
Everyone needs a place in this new world with zombies constantly at our throats. During the apocalypse, you and your group will be more worried about this constant threat then about how the new government will function. After the zombies die down after 10-20 years, give or take five years, you will have time to think about rebuilding society. There would never be a better time to come up with a better system. My idea would be a system where everyone had a job, house, etc., and got payed by the central group. The central group would then ration out, for example food, to all the families. The central group would keep a stock pile of all resources and keep track of incoming and outgoing supplies. During the apocalypse, people would not have a good reason to steal food from one an other because the only thing keeping the “town” together would be everyone’s participation. Everyone must realize that after the apocalypse, it will be much the same, just without the constant threat of being chewed to the bone. Well I hope I have given you something to think about. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some food to manage.
Zombies are attracted to anything that they can see, smell or hear. I suggest using this weakness to your advantage. Try using bell towers to lure bitters to different other sides of the town or city, as seen in The Walking Dead Video Game Season 2. If you ever come across fireworks, take them they can be used to overrun an enemies base by attracting zombies to their location.
You could make a spike or pitfall using noise and lights to attract them into a fall.
If your base is ever surrounded by zombies and escape is not an option, try using fireworks, speakers, or other noisy/bright objects to get them off your walls.
Zombies work in a dis-coordinated hoard, often traveling for miles in one direction, long forgetting what they were original chasing. It could be a rock falling or a random squirrel, but now there are 20…50…100…200 it just keeps getting larger and larger until they find something else to attract their attention.
Today I am going to be talking about the unthinkable happening. That raiders and bandits found your hide away and decide to kill you for supplies.
Well actually, first let’s talk about preparation for such an event.
I would recommend to leave a false map on your person. The map would indicate the whereabouts of your ‘base’. Which in reality, would actually be a trap. This trap can be very unique and creative, but I believe simply attracting a hoard and trapping them inside a building would be satisfactory. Just have some kind of tripwire that, when activated, would open a door with a loud “BANG!”, and hopefully get the bandits eaten alive.
Keep a private stash of guns, ammo, food, and water. Only tell a select few about this stash, as any of your fellow survivors could have switched sides. When captured or your base overrun, if they don’t kill you straight away, bide your time and wait for an escape. Don’t try to overthrow them again unless you got to your secret stash of supplies and you are very confident that you can take out the main enemy figure or likewise destroy their group.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some guns to hide.
