LOL. Love this thread! I suppose it all depends where you are when the outbreak takes place and how much warning you have in order to prepare. If you
are out in the middle of nowhere sat in your armoured fortress caressing your 12 guage then your pretty well sorted. If, on the other hand, you are
wandering in your pajamas down to the shops for some milk and a zombie lunges out of the bushes to chew your face off you may experience some
Living in the UK pretty much dictates you wont be reaching for the M4 and the 100 round drum magazine. Our government doesnt look too favourably on
the population being armed to the teeth just in case the undead decide to come to town. I have therefore come to the conclusion you would need to have
three separate plans of action.
One, you will need a 'safehouse', a place stocked with essentials (food, clothing, water and medical equipment) that is isolated, sturdy and in an
advantagious location (high above sea level with good 360 degree views). This will be the place you intend to end up after the outbreak, unless you
are allready there.
Two, you will need an appropriate method of transport, just in case you are not in your safehouse. Something quiet but speedy like a mountine bike
(needs no fuel) or a horse. Horses have been used throughout history in war and seem to cope fairly well in frightening situations. Also, once you
have reached your safehouse you could kill the horse for food so you no longer have to look after it. A tad harch perhaps but the situation is
Three, you will need to be physically fit, know basic self defence and be constantly wary for the undead menace that could strike at any time! If you
are caught unawares then you need to get you prefered method of transport fast so as to get to your safehouse.
If for any reason the outbreak occurs when you are on holiday or miles away from your preffered safehouse then count yourself unlucky, steel yourself
mentally, crank up the metal, find a big stick (baseball bat if your in the US or a cricket bat if in the UK) and go out swinging, with dignity and
with words of your forefathers on your lips.
