Daryl Dixon

Jack Flacco

Last week I wrote about Rick Grimes, the leader of the survivors of AMC’s The Walking Dead. This week, I thought I’d add to my Wednesday Warriors series by talking about Daryl, the pragmatist of the group. Not only does he have a way of making things work by taking the simple approach, but he’s also the character no one would want to lose if things in the series should end up going south.

There’s a running joke on the internet, more of a meme. It goes something like this:

“Everyone makes fun of the redneck until the zombie apocalypse.”

It may seem funny, and yes, I must admit that it does strike me as humorous. But it also contains an element of truth others would rather ignore. That truth being, rednecks know a lot more about survival than the rest of us could…

After all of the adults have a good idea of everyone else’s abilities, you can start teaching the few young you may have alive, the basic tools for their survival.

Teach them with practical learning, put it to use. Need them to learn about math, have them calculate the surface area needed for a building. Hands-on learning. And now good luck, teach them all you know and have the others do so as well, an maybe someday, we could restore the world once more.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some barricade lengths to calculate.

Good advice that can be applied to any apocalypse!


One of my readers asked me if I would once again address this topic so I’ll take another run at it as requested.  In order to be better prepared to protect yourself; be aware of the warning signs that usually signal that an attack by a criminal is imminent.

  • When someone invades your personal space, by standing too close, especially when there aren’t many people around.  What they are doing is closing the distance between you and them for a potential attack.
  • Asking you a question like do you have the time or do you have change for a dollar.  What they are doing is evaluating your situational awareness and sizing you up as a potential target.
  • If someone is walking towards you and their hands are hidden; especially behind their backs, your radar should be up telling you that something is wrong.
  • Coordinated motion; if you cross the street…
