I like this thread!

While ammo and coffee are HUGELY important in how I would prepare for the zombie apocalypse, I also really appreciate a defensive approach. I think that digging trenches around my home would be an important first step provided my immediate survival needs are met. Obviously, that would be a huge undertaking, and ideally there would be a community who helps one another accomplish the trenches.

Imagine if the prison in the walking dead had a trench around it beside the fences... the zombies would have never even gotten to the fence to push it over! Once you get a big mass of them in the trenches you could either torch them, or leave them as a defensive perimeter against human survivors with ill intentions.

If you are prepared for a zombie apocalypse, you are prepared for any apocalypse.

Bring on the zombies!



Oh yeah, call me Governor beez!

I'm not so sure about that picture beez, it makes you look like a progressive libertarian socialist... and we all know those poor folks will be the first ones the zombies will choose to floss their teeth with.

Just sayin'

Valid point! Although my trench idea is based on the aforementioned idea that the zombies are of "medium" speed. I figure that would still be manageable before they pile up to an overwhelming number.

if your a zombie then breathing is not a requirement and I would think water would slow you down possibly but not stop you. heck they probably float anyway. Now topping it with some combustible material (oil or kero) could be beneficial as long as your next barrier is not combustible.

Ahhh, I forgot about the dreaded blood moons. That explains a lot.

So it really is the end of the world this month... blood moons, everyone at each other's throats in various threads today, zombie apocalypse planning strategies, the Atlanta Braves burning the stars and stripes, etc.

Yeah that seems about right.

Zombie trench = Zombie trench emptier duty

-or-

Trench full of zombies. Doah!

Can't even get people to empty the kitty box, imagine when we tell them to empty the zombi trench.

Quite forgot about that until this thread started. Read a little about it but have no idea if it is real or just prior world events that landed on those previous moons. It would make a great addition to the story though. In a thousand years, descendants of the zombie apocalypse tell their children how it all started at the beginning of that event.
    The Great Blood Moon Zombie Apocalypse

Has quite a ring to it.

The perfect disguise!

If I look like a typical Birkenstock, erudite, weenie, I can fit in with the elite and take their stuff!

After review here's the combined additional items we've come up with. We're making some great headway in defining our plans of survival. ATS is likely to have the only survivors after the zombie apocalypse.
    1. Make additional plans for a unicorn invasion.

    2. Zombie speed must be determined: Slow, medium or fast. This seems important so I'll add an extra requirement:
    2a. Select volunteer from the group to test zombie speed.

    3. Avoid play-doe as a food source.

    4. Do not drink more than two zombies. Three is apparently dangerous the next day.

    5. Zombies come out in summer, hang in small groups and their pants droop.

    6. Get more coffee. Whatever you have, get more.

    7. Don't make zombie threads, the survival forum guys will pounce before noting this is in the General Chit-Chat forum.

    8. Wear lot's of leather.

    9. Zombies only drink sissy coffee. Try to keep them cornered in a Starbucks.
    9a. Never carry sissy coffee in your bug out bag.

    10. Always follow "Zombieland" rules, it was a documentary and teaching aid.
    10a. "Zombieland" rules, "World War Z" sucked (the movie not the book.)

    11. Mods appear OK with zombie survival threads in the General Chit Chat forum.
    11a. Planned future zombie survival thread in Survival forum is not recommended.

    12. Add a periscope to your BOB and a cat pee for camouflage testing purposes.

    13. Tape job applications all over yourself .. use as zombie repellant.

    14. Find small mansion built into the side of a mountaintop with 40 acres of prime ag land below.

    15. Begin martial arts and/or fencing training now in preparation for apocalypse.

    16. Reinforce doors and windows using hurricane supply shop items.
    16a. If no hurricane shop use subfloor wood to reinforce. Use screws not nails. Use on outside of frames, outside the house.

    17. Watch "The Walking Dead" and don't do what they do on the show.

    18. Don't eat rabbit until AFTER the first frost? or you'll get worms.. Tularemia... Rabbit fever...

    19. Store lots of pet food (in case you get hungry after eating all the pets.)

    20. Weapons, weapons, weapons. What ever you pick have a bunch of them.
    20a.Swords, machete's or sharp slashy things. Good pocket knife recommended.
    20b. Nasty little pistols of large caliber. AK-47's are also good and easy to rig/fix/etc.
    20c. 2014 battle ax 2014 Battle Ax is so cool.

    21. Get costume so you look like the Governor.

    22. Find a prison (like The Walking Dead) then get someone else to dig a big trench around it.
    22a. Designate a certified "zombie trench cleanup" person to empty full trenches.
    22b. Try filling test trench with non flammable liquids to test it's effect on zombie speed.

OK that's all we got so far. Quite frankly I've calculated the ATS zombie survival quotient and it's about 26%. I'm pretty sure we're all gonna die and become zombie food. C'mon people!

my sons addition:

.22 LR are easy to find and come in 800 count boxes. Use a .22....itll do the job, no recoil (better aiming) and ammo is everywhere.

Sweet! I will be sure to pay homage to the King of Costco and maybe trade some fresh food stuff from the gardens for some Apple Jacks. Kids love the stuff.

Yeah, having some form of body armor would be good in the event of hand to hand being needed. I've actually had zombie apocalypse dreams (probably from playing too many zombie games lol) where I've had to fight off zombies to protect my youngest. I was totally Neo from the Matrix in the dream, of course. I was a glorified bad a$$. Probably wouldn't pan out quite the same in reality, lol.

For the record, rangerdanger, we do also have emergency preparedness plans in the event of those natural disasters that could occur within our area inclusive of supplies to where to stand or what to do if not at home (to assure finding each other). Those things are common sense. Our zombie planning, however, was just a fun twist on it as my eldest had just finished reading the Zombie Survival Guide.

That will be interesting. I can see it now

1 bag tomatoes, 3 heads fresh lettuce = 3000 boxes of Apple Jacks.


After I get done throwing out all the GMO crap I'll probably end up having to work for you in your gardens just to get some real food. How about a big screen TV for some of those radishes??

Pretty sure the Apple Jacks would end up getting tossed because god knows something in it is probably GMO. LOL Considering the probable loss of electricity, that'd be like trying to sell ice to an eskimo, lol. That's something to consider though...electricity. Need to discuss solar and wind energy with my dad now....

Hordes of zombies require lots of ammo,use a small caliber.
Aim for the head, zombies really hate that.
Never ever under any circumstance set a zombie on fire, you will be chased by flaming zombies.
You don't need to be a fast runner to get away from zombies, you need to be faster than the guy behind you.
Zombies don't breathe. Avoid shallow water.
A sword or a machete is great, a tomahawk is better and none of these run out of ammo.
Zombies don't care how much gear you have, only whether they can catch you or not.
If at any moment you think your hold is secure, a zombie will show you the security flaws.


almost forgot. Zombies attack at two times. When you're ready, and when you're not.

Hey Bassago!

I'm not prepping for zombies. I'm going to assume that they're like the ones in "Warm Bodies", so I will just show them love and kindness and then their hearts will beat once more.
They will go back to being human again.
Simple.

But if that doesn't work, then SHOOT 'EM!!
