Title: Zombie apoclypse survival....
Post by: weazletoe on October 30, 2012, 12:12:10 AM
 So this hurricane got me to thinking, when the zombie apocolypse comes, not if, when, I need to be prepared. What do you guys keep in your BoB's? I'm just working on getting mine together. I carry a backpack with me everywhere I go so its a natural transition. Things like knives and axes I'll have t keep two of. One in Idaho and one on ohio as TSA gets all weirded out by that stuff. I'll also have to get n ready for Holly to keep in her car. If you haven't considered a 72 hour kit, think about it. The zombies ARE coming. Its just a matter of time.

I have to believe this is a joke: http://www.federalnewsradio.com/407/3096034/Marines-police-prep-for-mock-zombie-invasion-

But if not, it may mean that the zombie apocalypse is nearer than you think.

I'll just head down to the basement where I keep the wine and beer.  On the way down, I'll grab the bourbon.

Plenty of baseball bats, golf clubs, hammers, hatchets, etc. down there to fend off the zombies.

Hmm, sounds like you need to invest in a sword.

The "etc" covers a few other useful items...

Used to have a machete down there, but I don't think I do any longer.  May need to pick one up.

That Zombie page was a humorous attempt by our government to get people to actually think about disaster planning from a personal perspective.  I thought it was funny when it came out and it does seem to get people to at least think about putting a kit together for when things go bad.

I suggest you make sure to keep a chainsaw around too.  The noise will confuse the zombies and you can use it to cut wood for the fire you'll need to cook on.  8^)

Here's what you should do:

If you own an AR, attach this to your rail:

Hmmmm....  Not sure I can legally own an AR in Chicago.  And my chainsaw is electric, which severely restricts my range.

http://www.swordsoftheeast.com/thaitsukifuruishishifoldedkatanasamuraisword.aspx

10 folds (1024 layers)

Honestly above $1000 and below $4000 the construction all looks the same.  Good steel, folded, clay quenched (proper--this is how you make the sword curve, the clay's thinner at the blade edge so it gets tempered harder due to greater exposure to heat) in water.

High carbon steel rusts.  These swords are traditionally stored in 99% mineral oil with 1% clove oil.  The clove oil is for aroma.  Weapons like this demand discipline, or they rust.  I tend to prefer my fists, which suffer the same problem:  without practice, my body becomes weak and my coordination and sense of self are lost, and I fight less effectively.  The symptoms are actually two-fold:  I might be a weaker fighter, but also more dangerous--a powerful fighter can subdue an opponent more easily; without that, you may be forced to inflict greater injury or death.  He who cannot protect himself must instead destroy his enemy.

when it comes to zombies i think destruction and not merely subduing(is that a word) is in order.

What about the people who are looking for food and fresh water, and coming for your stores?

Remove the zombies and you still have a problem...

You've got a long way to shuffle and shamble to get to my house.  See you in a few years. :)

As a side note, Costco is ground zero for zombies. Just go into any Costco anywhere with a purpose and you will find the store filled with zombies. They tend to block the isles, particularly around the feeding stations. Be careful around these slack jawed Costco Zombies running into you with their overfilled shopping carts, or their contagion may infect you as well...

i guess i need to empty the place out first.

gmac don't turn in to a zombie till you are closer to seattle becasuse as Tom points out you have a long way to shuffle. and it is well documented that zombies move even slower when they are frozen.
