I'd go find Bear Grylls from Man vs. Wild and force him to take me to some island somewhere and live off the land.

my plan for if the zombies were able to take over, is to gather a rebellion force out of the remaining humans and fight them off. Think about it they are slow and stupid that combination is horrible. I think that the only reason they ever do suceed in movies and stuff, is because they have the element of surprise and they can spread quickly. I am pretty sure an organized total attack on the majority of them would wipe them out.

If you panic and succumb to fear, you get eaten up. If you keep your cool you start to notice that they are slow, sluggish, stupid and you can always escape, trick and eliminate them.

I would go to an island, get rid of the zombies there and trust that the rest of them are too stupid to reach the island.

Personally, I'd load up as many supplies as I could and my bike into my truck, drive the truck til it's out of gas, then ride my bike the rest of the way to Alaska, which isn't too far way for me. I have two reasons for this: one, zombies have no blood flow, so they will freeze like zombiesicals in the cold. And two, since I'm a Canadian citizen: Alaska is part of the US, therefore they should have guns. I'd carry a crowbar and a machete with me; machete for quickly slicing a zombie, and crowbar for 1) bashing their head in if I can't get my machete in time and 2) for opening locked doors and breaking through debris, or that general kind of thing.

the best thing to do realistically in this situation (and probably the standard government protocal for this kind of occurrance) is to just head for the nearest military base and wait it out.

but to be fun about it, i would just hide at home, have a cup of tea and wait for it to all blow over.
or i'd go to the pub and listen to don't stop me now. although i have seen that there is a possibility of that backfiring. lol.

I have many huge cans of zombie repellant. I will be fine.

I would head to my old elementary school and seal off all the doors in the gym except one that way there is a way out and the rest is fortified. Then I would go to the nearby houses and find survivors/supplies. once i had enough of both i would head back to my base and we would all elect a leader for our group.( it would propably be me)
. Then we would all take turns round the clock gaurding the only open entrance and when we needed to head out for supplies. As for every day life after that we would hand out supplies every day to people in our group and we would probably always be armed. We would also make a church in our base so we could pray to God that all the zombies would go away.

We already have that.

Except for the transmitting disease through bites part. It's transmitted through the media.

I'd break into a used car lot steal a old school car. you know the ones made with the heavy gauge metal and weigh about 4500 lbs. Then I'd take it across the street and gas her up. then I'd stop by the local Rite Aid and jack a clip board, a pen, and a notepad. then I'd drive at about 75MPH down the street with my clipboard in hand jotting down how many points I'm amassing as I run over the zombie people wholesale.

Zombie men in business suits staggering in the streets are worth 2 points. Zombie skateboarder kids and most annoying teenagers are worth 3 points. Any zombie that used to be somebody you didn't like a week ago before they were zombies that you manage to come across are worth 10 points.

Then I'd pick up my one friend who wasn't zombified and have him swing away at zombies like they were mailboxes as I drive down the street at high velocities.

im at home watching tv and being in america i see maybe... France has a "zombie" out break so AS soon as i saw that

get all my friends and loved ones to the nearest home depot and have them bring as much food and weaponry as possible

then me and my buddy dave (whos father is an ex marine core sniper and has a gun fetish) would go to his house grab guns ammo REMS knives grenades bb guns shovels anything

last stop before i go and plant my self at home depot is a gas station and get as much gasoline as possible for vehicles chainsaws bombs ect...

now why home depot? because it has very few flaws in zombie proof design

barely any windows very tall walls and made of brick.

the only flaws are the glass automated doors whitch i mean come on your in a home depot u can block a door.

The Mall?

Lots of entrances/exits = zombie buffet...

Having read both of Brooks' books...

1. Be Aware - keeping an eye out for weird news reports that sound zombie-esque can let you know the gig is up before others.

2. Prepare - stock up on fishing supplies, seeds, ammo, weapons, include melee weapons. Go bald (chicks too...zombies can't grab hair that doesn't exist). Obtain a motorcycle...allows you to run fast, avoid road entanglements. Use remaining cash... convert to cigarettes (will become the post-apocalyptic cash for many, and they're small and light to carry)... This also means getting together a group of people with different skillsets.

3. Steal a nice yacht from the local marina, and head for a small island. The route, island, etc. should all be chosen before-hand. It's easier to defend on an island...and once you clean it out, you're only looking at keeping out the occassional ocean bed walker or floater...

4. Once on the island, establish a fortress of some kind (even better, use an existing one). Build a large ditch around it with a drawbridge (zombies can't climb). If possible, an oil moat is nice as a fiery wall is a great defense in case of a mass invasion. Many safe areas (on stilts) inside the fortress, can be used as last resort places (and be connected by aerial walkways, so as to not isolate survivors of a seige).

5. Inside the fortress, plant seeds, patrol the perimeter, fish on the coast (with guards), start a small society. Monitor communications, but do not broadcast...(until you know it's safe to do so).

What about the "newgen" zombies from 28 Days Later fame? [REC], Dawn of the Dead or Quarantine anyone? Great movies actually. They are a lot more interesting than the sluggish and retarded zombies. Me? I have no idea. Probably just prepare for the worst and stock up on explosives if I have to go out surrounded by those **** zombie bastards.

I think ive put in enough thought i think i could survive.

First a few things, assuming its caused by ether a virus or bacterial infection, a chain saw, a machete, and a katana are all poor choices. If you get some blood or flesh your just as dead as if they bite you.

so my plan is to head up the mountains. I already live near them and they provide me some additional advantages, regardless of if they are slow or fast moving zombies.
1. Its below freezing and even if the zombie is warm enough to keep from freezing it would definitely slow their muscles down.
2 The lowered oxygen content would slow them as well. Ive got a gun so i don't need to run at all.
3 i believe the zombies brain would essentially become an animals, and if your difficult to get to they likely will go off to find easier food source.

Two for my survival plan on supplies .
no more then a few bottles (gotta stay light) several large pots for melting snow and cooking. jerky, MREs if i can get em. small amount of gasoline, lighters and a flint strikers for fire. a .22 rifle. and i have several thousand .22 shells in a ammo case. the scope is a 35x-50x scope at perfectly zeroed. (a .22 can pierce bone and worst case aim for the spine.

A large First Aid kit, with sutures for large laceration. many bandages.

definitely swing by and loot a pharmacy if i can, loot some vicodin for pain, and a serous ton of antibiotics.
if you can grab glycerine (for diarrhea) and potassium permanganate, they can be mixed to produce a very effective emergency fire that can be done while injured or exhausted.

For shelter id hope to bring a tent but a sleeping bag and branches would be effective.

And last but last but not least a sharped hatchet and several lengths of hundred foot rope. you climb to a spot with a great view and tie off a rig up high.
now take your hatchet and cut of the lower limbs, and the ones right around you so you have a clear view to shoot from.
*key idea* remember to tie a rope from your tree to your gun, so if you drop it it'll be fine. and tie your ammo to the tree as well for same reason.

You melt snow for water and hunting is easy with plentiful ammo.

And remember shoot first and ask questions later. more people more risk.

I would head to the local Home Depot, because there is plenty of wood to barricade myself in there, not to mention all the power tools, saws, etc. There is also a Super 1 Foods right next door, and a gun shop 1/4 mile down the road. Best bet is to grabs the guns first, and make a bridge out of wood from the Home Depot to the Super 1 Foods.

Yea you know I dont think this thread was meant to be serious, I believe it was meant for people to have a little fun.
Its also possible that "zombie survival" could be paralleled with any number of scenarios where an infectious outbreak occurs like bird flu or something like that.
Nothing forced you to read past the first post and if you dont want to contribute in a plan for any "fictional emergency" then dont but leave the trolling out of the thread as well.

As far as a plan goes, we would need to clarify exactly what kind of zombies we are facing.
The zombies from the original dawn of the dead and night of the living dead are slow, sluggish and mindless idiots that are easy to escape from and avoid.
For those types we could find a place that would make a good compound or an area to build a good compound on and surround it with some type of traps instead of just fences.
Dig some large pit traps outside of the fenced area and as the pit fills, burn the bodies. Someone also mentioned moats filled with oil, this is a good idea and I would put them outside of the fence, between the pit traps and the security fence.
You would need better tactics if you were dealing with zombie types from the newer movies, especially with the ones from I am legend, which werent technically zombies.
You have some advantages with them though, one being that they only come out at night, which gives you at least 8 hours a day to prepare but they are a lot smarter and extremely strong, a little to strong if you ask me but it was just a movie after all.

I believe a shoot on site policy for non-zombies is a little harsh though.
Its true that in these apocalyptic scenarios, regular people can be as bad as the zombies but a policy like that would make you as bad or worse than those types of people. It would be bad if one of the persons that you "shot on site" turned out to be a doctor that could help treat sick and injured or a scientist that could help create a cure.
Also, every single person thats not infected would be needed to fight the zombies and help re-populate the world afterwards.
These scenarios are entertaining to speculate about but anyone that really wishes this to happen, needs help.
Something like this would set the worlds advancements back several years.

I would grab my dog and my girlfriend and drive to my work, which is a met office. It is surrounded on 4 sides by a high secure fence, with barbed wire, and the front is locked with an electronic gate. The building is also secure with electronic locks and double plated cyclone proof windows, which are precatically inpenetrable

Inside there are cooking and bathrrom facilities (including a shower), and there is a CB radio (which we use during tropical cyclones when the telephone stops working). There is also a steel grating for a balcony which provides good spotting platform and also a place to be evacuated from if necessary.

Also, the back of the office backs on to Darwin International Airport, which is a combined military and civilian base....Im sure having some military presence could be sueful
