Well I guess I'll try and answer my own question for fun...
I think I'd wait for a while and figure out a plan. Start by really barricading the door. I'd likely figure out some weapons. And I'd pack a light
bag. Then at some point leave at night. I'd ride my bike around trying to find a car if possible. But since I don't know how to hotwire one I'd
probably be screwed. But I'm sure some abandon house would have a car and keys. I'd put all my stuff in it, try and siphon some gas and make as many
gas and oil cans as I could. Get a few spare tires, tools and parts. Ideally maybe try and find a mini-van and get rid of the back seats and make it
camperized. Get some food and water in there. Then try and drive out at night using only back roads. Just drive slowly and quietly as not to raise
attention. I don't think a slow moving car that was far out pacing a walker would keep them interested for long. Once you're several blocks away
they'd give up chase. I'd try and stop at as many stores, walmart, safe way and gather up anything left. Espcially proper clothing, weapons, and
gear. Then once in the country just go carefully investigating various acreages. Look for one that isn't being used. Use it to resupply and settle
into and plan my next move. Alternative to that maybe find a grocery store or a wall mart. Even if most of the shelves are barren take whatever is
remaining and go find some old warehouse or office area near by and make that a base for a little while. Ultimately I think I'd just wait things out
for a while. I'm sure if you could survive at least 1 yr realistically most of the walkers would be gone too. Then all you'd have to contend with is
humans. So just get some guns. I think I'd slowly make my way down to the coast. Try and find a small cabin cruiser and make it to an island. Or if
there's no gas just find a sail boat and try and teach myself how to sail. Then make my way slowly down the coast to warmer waters, stopping into
each little town along the way to resupply. I wouldn't sail far away from shore just to be safe, not use too big of a sail boat as not to hit bottom.
Maybe in time team up with a small group that likes the idea of sailing our way down to warm waters. I think the greatest challenge would be finding
food and drinking water. I think gradually it would be a nightmare as supplies ran out. You'd almost have to adopt the old pioneering ways to learn
to live off the land. But I think if you could survive the first year you'd likely be okay after that.
