KEEP THOSE BRAINS!

The following are ten important things to know when it comes to keeping yourself safe.  

  1. Be situationally aware of who and what is around you.
  2. Pay attention to your gut instincts.  If something feels wrong or unsafe than it probably is wrong or unsafe.

Top Five Melee Weapons (Zombie Apocalypse)

 

I have done a post before talking about which melee was better, Blunt vs. Blade so far blade is winning by one vote. Now we bring you The Top Five Melee Weapons for The Zombie Apocalypse, from worst to best.

5. Sludge Hammer
The sludge hammer is my worst pick, because it is heavy and impractical when traversing large distances, which you will probably be doing most of the time. Also, it will be too slow to attack several zombies at the same time. But if you have nothing else, go for it.

4. Metal Baseball Bat
At first this may seem like the best solution, it’s easy to come by and decently effective. It will probably dent or break after multiple zombies. Still not the worst option though.

3. Hatchet
Hatchets are good, they can be used as a blade or a blunt. They can be used to chop wood and pound in nails. The downside to this tool, is the reach, it is very limited. However, it is still worthy of the top three spot because of the multiple uses and for its great use for indoors.

2. A Pike
The obvious downside to this weapon is the when in use indoors and close spaces. Many pike can be made out of home materials. Such as a broom handle or a pipe. For the end use an ice pick, knife or other such things. Take your handle and duct tape your head to it. The better materials the better your weapon will be. Only use if you have quality materials on hand.

1. A Machete
At about 15 to 21 inches, this takes both lengths and adds into a good middle ranged weapon. And to add that they are very common, this makes it my number one pick. However, be wary when buying a machete. Do your research before picking one up.

So you have Survived the First Year? Zombie Apocalypse Prep

 

So you have survived the first year?
Well, good for you! By this point you will probably be out of regular canned foods and be looking for an alternative. What!? You didn’t plan ahead *sarcasm*. I swear in every zombie movie or TV show that they are never planning for the future. But, in The Walking Dead comic books they do a great job planning and preparing, when they are not dealing with stupid other survivors shooting at them.

When planning your main focuses are going to be food, water, and shelter. Not unlike any other survival situation.
For food:
You are going to want to plant a garden. In that garden you should have an assortment of vegetables to store for the winter. Winter is now one of your biggest threats. (Depending on where you live.) Good things to start your garden include;
Cucumbers: One cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, B3, B5, B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc. Why wouldn’t you want that?
Garlic: Increases the immune system, can help boils and sores, will expel intestinal parasites and worms from your body, and has anti-fungal properties which are very effective for treating yeast infections and Candida. Also it will help wash out that putrid taste of dog food.

For water:
I think these links will clear up any questions about water filtering and maybe you’ll find a new blog while you’re out:

And lastly about shelter:
I have done posts about this before, such as here, and here. I am just going to add a few tips. You want to be away from civilization, like up in some mountain away from all zombies and more importantly, other survivors. Do not head north, people die all the time not to add in the crazy riots that a zombie apocalypse will insure. Okay don’t head north and don’t stay in the city. I would want to go south. For one, I hate the cold so that’s a plus right there and also you might get to avoid all those idiots that are heading north. Good luck in your zombie ventures no matter where you go. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some gardening to be done.
