If the zompoc was to break out now, my holiday would be ruined. While I am in America, who are known for having automatic rifles on their kitchen tables, it is a foreign country and I know no one here. This raises the question of what would you do if you were stuck in unknown territory? (more…)

When hypothesizing an apocalypse in which anyone can imagine themselves as a gun-toting, instant survival expert; I constantly find myself focusing on decent places to hunt for supplies. I’m guessing that most of you reading this have realized that the best plan of survival involves getting as far away from a major city as you possible. Sadly, however, I don’t think that’s a real option for me. (more…)
So you’re a lucky bugger with money to throw around and you’re building a house. Why not use those funds to zombie-proof your home?
The ultimate zom-safe home is the epitomy of reclusive living that blends in with the neighbourhood, ensuring that you are left alone by zombies and people alike. From the outside, it appears to be a normal home, but as the owner, you know that you’re sleeping safe and sound within the walls of protection. (more…)
The circle method is a semi-nomadic safe zone option where multiple safe zones are utilised to avoid overuse of resources and direction in case the current secure area is compromised. It is not a simple plan, and needs to be established prior to the zombie apocalypse, but the circle method can prevent you from wandering aimlessly if you ever lose your current safe zone. (more…)
Ahh, zombies have invaded my country! What will I do? I know I’ll go to xXx!
Don’t migrate. For starters, it’s rude. Mass migration will put enormous strain on the country’s existing resources, and in communications breakdown, you won’t know if the country’s infected or not. You’ll be going in and fighting thousands of others (who all know the area better than you) for food, housing and safety. (more…)
Ah, an island. We all want to go live on one, even if there isn’t a zombie outbreak. Why wouldn’t you? Blissful isolation, free from worries. Perfect…
Just like travelling, life on an island will vary, so I’ll be covering the optimal island choices and at the same time will be explaining you why you’re better off sticking to the mainland. (more…)
Moving about should be reserved for extreme cases where your current location is not at all suitable for survival. As desirable as one may find the city for shelter from the apocalypse, I personally would resign myself as absolutely f**ked!*
Another case where moving is acceptable is in the case where the government has survived the outbreak and has requested annihilation of the area. However, unless they are considerate enough to possible survivors to relay some kind of warning, you won’t know about the annihilation until it happens. Complete destruction of suburban areas is the most likely scenario. Governments will be reluctant to flatten cities and ruin farmlands. Cities can be quarantined until cleared (cheaper than rebuilding), and farmlands will have low undead populations. Suburbs are replaceable and will contain large groups of zombies, validating the destruction. (more…)
This article is not going to explain how to turn your home into a zombie-proof fortress. Instead, I’ll be giving you a few tips on how to properly secure your home in order to gain those few extra seconds that make the difference between life and undead. (more…)
It’s strange, in a flight or fight situation, many of us go the “duck for cover”. We hurry ourselves into corners, behind/under/in whatever, in order to escape our pursuer. But if you’ve ever seen an action or horror film, you’d know that it never works. (more…)
