Hmm, according to the zombie survival guide, flammables are not good. They just create walking flaming zombies which can ignite you or any gasoline
you would use for fuel.
My plan is to avoid all communal locations, yes including military bases. Attach a silencer to my mini 14 and take a handful, only a handful of
friends and family to the port where we would take a cruiser or a small quiet boat to an offshore oil rig and wait it out. Oil rigs have their own
power supply and food, and ways to get fresh water, you could hole out there for awhile.
The reason why im taking a mini 14 with a silencer is because its a semi auto, no wasted bullets with aiming, and the silencer to reduce noise.
Shotguns, machine guns, desert eagles, firing those would alert every single zombie in the vicinity because they can hear it.
For those who would take shelter on land based encampments, the guide says to go to arctic tundras where the zombies would literally freeze in their
footsteps. Food and survival might be harder there but you are pretty much safe. Good zombie traps would be silent ones, no explosions. Pitfalls with
pikes are good ones for keeping a weakpoint somewhat defended. Also rockfalls work well and have unlimited ammunition if you are on high ground.
A secondary place to hole up would probably be a prison, granted that it is abandoned.
places to avoid are.. this is pretty long.
Malls, marshes, swamps, 1 story houses, military bases, police stations, schools, deserts, forests (unless you can build a treehouse community REALLY
fast), any buildings with more glass than concrete (car retail places ect), the city, airports (everyone will try to get there to catch a plane to
somewhere else), racoon city.
The book also mentions that you should avoid very close ranged weapons such as katars, daggers, brass knuckles, and the like.
It also suggest that sharkmail would be a good choice for armor because it isnt as heavy as most full body protection and has vents for your body to
breath while you are running.
