Are You Ready for the Zombie Apocalypse Tomorrow?
1. Always have a pack prepared with all the supplies you need in case you have to run. Don't forget food, water, water purification supplies, lots of ammo, and blunt objects. The CDC recommends you have the following items in your emergency preparedness kit:
•Water (1 gallon per person per day)
•Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
•Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
•Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.)
•Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
•Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
•Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)
•First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane)
2. Always use bludgeoning tools before guns when possible when facing a zombie. Ammo will run out quickly and you'll never run out of bullets with an axe.
3. Avoid cities and towns. When the people start dying, urban areas will be flooded with zombies. Find someplace remote where people didn't go much in life.
4. Travel on foot when possible. Roads will become backed up and traffic accidents and fires will draw the zombie hoard. Walk quietly in the woods and avoid notice.
5. Drink Trappist Ales. I hear they repel zombies and they'll dull the pain if you are eaten alive. I know I want to be drunk if I'm going to be disemboweled.
