Zombie Apocalypse preparations?

In light of rising concerns about the coming Zombie Apocalypse (I believe it’s time to capitalize the ZA, so those of us in the know can cut to the chase), I’ve had several discussions with people about what one should do. Hunker down? Head to a designated homestead where you can band together with preselected friends and family to battle the ZA together? Head out on your own (your family and friends might already be infected) to a remote place, take the high ground and wait it out? Or something else?

And for you skeptics out there, even the CDC prepared a guide to help families prepare for the ZA, so read up on the lists and preparations your government suggests.

In my own preparations, since I work on a military installation, one suggestion I heard was that I should just stay here. What could be more secure than a federal military reservation stocked with food, fuel, weapons and lots of people who know how to us them? Not to mention being surrounded by dedicated and brave service men and women.

Oh contraire, I am told by others. Get as far away from that military base as possible. The masses will ALSO think a spot behind the secure fence line is just the place to be. The hoards of victims of the ZA will flock here, looking for safety. All military reservations will be mobbed. Overrun. The walls will only hold so long and once they fall … well, it’s that slow shuffle walk, decaying flesh and wordless moaning for you. —

Someone put together this map of where seemingly related incidents took place to illustrate the growing evidence that now is the time to plan for the ZA. What do you think? Military base, or no military base?

  1. I think I’d stay far away from anywhere crowds might congregate. I’ll hook up with my friend who makes and collects knives. My brother has the makings of a farm in isolated Vermont. But if you become a zombie, forget I ever said that. 🙂


  2. I think if I become a zombie, I’ll forget you said it, like it or not. I’m learning toward finding an abandoned boat in Baltimore Harbor and just going out to sea for a while. I know NOTHING about navigating in the ocean, but I’d take my chances I think. And don’t tell anyone. I’m thinking I might not be the only person with that idea.
