My plan is fool-proof... ish.
Load up my small boat with everything I need to perform a small scale rescue operation. Leave the family at home to defend the house (Blow up the
I would then go and collect a) more weapons, ammo, supplies from the local town, (which, knowing the locals, the zombies would be less intelligent
than usual), and also collecting the few members from there that would form the basis of my survivor group. Me being head of course as the only person
prepared for such an event.
From there, we would let the initial attack and hysteria die down, preparing defenses round our house and escape route.
Acquiring a bigger boat, and fuel would be easy, and would guarantee us a way out. Soon after we will load up the boat, tie the small boat to it with
a rope, and fill it with supplies, and start our slow voyage north.
We would stick to the Lochs, instead of venturing out into the sea. This requires more time on land to get through a long canal, but prevents us
falling victim to the unpredictable weather patterns on the coast here.
The ultimate aim would be to get to the Airport, as an aircraft is the only safe way out. Also, it *should* have equipment capable of communicating
with any surviving military, and thus establish how many survivors there are, and if it is a UK-only, or Global infection.
In the event it is a UK-Only infection, we contact the authorities, and fly out. (Or hold up in a 737, or A319)
If it is global, we grab a map, and go flying. Might take a while, and finding fuel could be an issue, but as most people will be killed or
zombificated within the first few days, there shouldn't be too much pillaging.
[A few notes:]
As a martial artist, I see my body as the most potent and easily available weapon around. Elbow and knee pads, (preferably military grade, but any
safety equipment will do), are a must for me. The ability to knock a zombie to the ground, and engage humans in hand-to hand combat must not be
hindered by fear of being injured.
After learning about the art of 'Guerrilla warfare', it seems to me to be the best way of escape if Plan A fails. If nothing else it would act as a
way to train the group. And would also act as a way of 'testing' new survivors into the group. If you can keep up, your in, if not, your zombie
The local Cadet center would be a good place to hold up temporarily. A good supply of 22 rifles, and ammo. Good high fences, and easy access to the
mountains should the need to run arise.
My 'Armour' would be a Airsofting Tactical vest. Preferably one with neck and shoulder guards. At least until a ballistic vest can be found. While
they are not necessary to begin with, close combat is inevitable, and I don't want to have to fight humans or zombies without something more than a
peice of cloth between me and them.
Thats my 'short term' plan anyway. My Long term one is too long (pun intended) to type out right now. I'm tired.
