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.
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.
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.
