This is a blog for me to talk about zombie related survival situations. I am not an expert in this field; no one really is, but myself especially. I get really hyped up on survival situations, and a lot of what I talk about really isn't geared specifically towards zombies, but that is certainly the general theme. Call me crazy, or take this in good fun. I'm not too worried either way. Feel free to share!
At some point within your post-apocalyptic journey, you’ll be stuck wandering around in the woods and not know anything about the area. However, just because you’re unfamiliar with the area, doesn’t mean you can’t know how to find anything.
Many ecosystems follow similar patterns whether it’s the birds you find, insects and other bugs, the plants and the patterns they form, or even animal droppings. First, you must become familiar with the plants and animals that live in different regions. Of course, start with your own. Go for walks out in undeveloped areas and take the opportunity to start identifying the different plants and animals around you. After a while, identifying will become natural, and you won’t need books or time to think about it. You’ll just know. Once you’re familiar with the plants and animals by appearance or droppings, you can start to look for footprints and nests or dens. You can figure out why each of the plants and animals are there. Do they hang out near water? Do they prefer ponds and marshes, or rivers and lakes? Are there certain kinds of trees they live in, or is it particularly humid or dry? This helps you transition to other areas of the world, and the plants and animals you find there. Certain birds, insects or plants will indicate that there is a specific water source near by, and some animals could lead you to shelter. Droppings and footprints can alert you to danger. Some plants could lead you out of the woods that got you lost in the first place.
I’m sure many of you have at least heard of these methods before, but maybe you haven’t paid much attention to them for lack of practical use. However, I ensure you that this knowledge and skill set will prepare you for an inevitable situation to come.
In order to start on this knowledge, you’ll need a text to start from. Head to the bookstore or library and start looking through the books for texts specific to your area. If you take the books out to the woods with you, it may be worth it to invest in your own books. The books you’ll need are:
Remember to be on a constant lookout for more information and how it can help you to survive during the zombie apocalypse. Gain knowledge and stay alive.
I’m actually glad you asked this. I’ve touched on it before here, and I really stand by it.
It’s really important that you first observe what the actual “virus” does. You can’t just go killing everyone who eats another part of a person because you think they’re a zombie. I mean, cannibals do exist, and people do freak out and bite chunks out of another person. I mean, Mike Tyson bit a man’s ear off, but he’s no zombie.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that you have to be careful classify what zombism(I guess I’m making that word up right now) encompasses, otherwise you end up including cannibals, individuals high on drugs, and other weird happenstances.
If they don’t die by hitting them in the head, try other places on the body. Usually you’d start with vital places like the heart, neck, or even lungs. If they’re trying to eat you and you can’t figure out how to kill them, start by removing it’s means of harming you first (i.e. mouth, hands).
You’re right that no one knows exactly what’s going to happen when the zombie apocalypse hits us, so you have to be prepared for anything and everything.
Depending on how long you’ve been following me, you may or may not be familiar with my personal survival plans.
For those who don’t know, I’ve compiled a list of posts that detail my plans in the order that they would be utilized.
When you’re mapping out your own future after the Apocalypse, there are many things you must consider. I only hope that my own plans can inspire your survival as well.
mres are great… i’m in the military and we eat them pretty often I could usually eat 1 a day at minimum so they are beneficial. especially if you strip them firstI’m assuming you didn’t read anything behind the link.
Over the winter, my activity level has gone done a considerable amount. In the future, of course, it’s important that I fix this. With spring on its way, exercise becomes a lot easier. I’ve been mentioning fitness on this blog for quite some time now, so it’s as good a time as any to post a bit of a reminder.
Being physically fit is a very important part of preparing for the zombie apocalypse. You’ve probably seen me mention the Run For Your Lives 5k Obstacle Course, and I’ve been considering taking part myself. I’ve got until August to prepare myself, so I’m taking full advantage of that.
The obstacle courses in each race are a surprise, so there is no definitive way to prepare except to prepare for anything. Often times, this will be the case in your apocalyptic survival. You never know what will be thrown at you or what you must do to survive. On top of the knowledge you’ll need like how to obtain food, water, and shelter as well as other various things I’ve posted on this blog, you’ll need to have the ability to run for long distances, lift heavy objects, climb things, and jump over things. Balance may be a factor, and many other unpredictable things. The biggest difference you’ll face if you choose to participate in Run For Your Lives is that in the race, zombies won’t attack you while you’re completing an obstacle. You won’t be so lucky in real life. Of course, if you practice different weird obstacles, you may find yourself in a tight situation thinking “I can do this. I’ve already done it before,” and that kind of experience can help you make quick decisions in a situation that doesn’t allow a lot of time.
For my own personal fitness, I’m starting out with a bit of flexibility training, strength training, cardio training, and stamina training. I’m starting out lightly because I’d rather not hurt myself too badly, but as I progress, I push myself a little further than I feel like I can go. This way, I can encourage progression rather than only fulfilling a daily regimen.
