Zombie Apocalypse Survival | Tips from The Walking Dead
A zombie apocalypse isn't just an awesome plot theme. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) takes it seriously enough to provide Zombie Preparedness kits and classes on their website. The good thing is that shows like The Walking Dead can teach us a lot about surviving a zombie breakout. Here are 7 of the best tips we can learn from Rick, Carl, Daryl, Michonne and the rest of the gang:
Tip # 1: Don't Freak Out, Man!
I know zombies are crazy and want to have you for dinner, but you got to maintain your shit. Calm down and remember every episode of The Walking Dead, you'll be fine. The most important thing is to understand that the government, police and any other authority won't be able to help you. It's on you, now.
Tip # 2: Carry a Big Stick
If you have any chance of surviving a bunch of ravenous Walkers, you got to get some big guns with plenty of ammo. If you can't hit the broadside of a barn, grab a pump-action shotgun. It carries a lot of ammo, reloads fast and you don't have to be Darrell to blast a zombie. Just pray and spray.
Tip # 3: Have Samurai Sword, Will Travel
Any zombie-slaying professional knows they got to have a sword if they want to survive the apocalypse. Preferably of the Samurai variety with a razor sharp blade. A quick slice to the head will put most zombies down for the count.
Tip # 4: Better Take Lunch
Grab as much supplies as you can before you leave civilization. Get food, water, gas, clothes and anything that crosses your mind or path. Remember, everyone is likely a soulless, shambling creature bent on eating your brain, take everything you need, it's not like its stealing.
Tip # 5: Get the Hell Out of Dodge
Towns are dangerous, cities are worse; get out and into the surrounding countryside. Even a small town can be crowded with people, and that means a lot of face-biting zombies lurking around every corner. Play it safe and set-up shop in the country.
Tip # 6: Home Sweet Defendable Home
As the days turn to months, you'll want to end the nomadic lifestyle and settle down. The only way to do this in a zombie-infested world is to make sure it's defended. Find a strong structure and barricade everything. Be sure the fence is sturdy and not held-up by sticks.
Tip # 7: Form a Clique
They may have tortured you in high school, but in a zombie apocalypse, it pays to have tough friends. Whether or not you get along doesn't particularly matter, just as long as you got each other's backs when the horde arrives.
