I would make my way up to a high point where I could start a large bonfire, as well as have a place nearby to watch who shows up in case the walking
dead chose to see what was cooking. I would occupy my time finding food and making a high shelter above the tree line. I would find a really tall tree
that had enough branches where I could make a floor out of materials I gathered. Since this is the apocalypse I would not venture into civilization. I
would stay where I am and try to make the best of the situation.
I would focus on my shelter, trying to make it as zombie proof as possible. I assume they can't climb a tree. It would have to be on a high mountain
top, where food was readily available. I would look for natural growing fruits and start a little orchard to attract wild game. I would hunt from the
trees, making a bow, and keep improving my shelter.
If I found a large enough tree with several strong branches I could place a floor on it made of other branches, I would do so.
I would try and make my first hunt sooner than later to get some better material for cloths as well as material for a bow. The bond fire would be to
try and attract the attention of air craft sill flying and other survivors, maybe my friends. I would have to set traps around the shelter though,
fall pits and other such traps, no spring loaded traps since the dead are already dead and they would only hurt the living.
If I really needed to, I would make my way towards the nearest town or road for supplies. Mostly parts from an abandoned car to strip, or a town for
pots, and other useful things.
If I found a hunting shed , my cabin or another cabin, I would use what I found there and just pillage it and avoid populated areas.I wouldnt stay
If in the first weeks my friends didn't make contact with me by the bonfire, I would only light it after if I saw air planes overhead, or I heard
I would live out my days in the woods. My family would have to not exist though, because if not, I would immediately venture into hell itself for the
chance of saving them.
