Zombie Survival Guide

The walking dead survival guide

For those of you who like to think down the road in the instances that this could possibly happen. And at the moment, I will not say it’s out of the realm of possibility. Just because it hasn’t occurred, doesn’t mean that it can’t.

So I write this in thoughts to what I would do to survive because most of what we know about the show, many things don’t add up. This is mainly due to what the show can focus on and what the main storyline is about. A zombie apocalypse or walking dead type of event would take on much more complexity. Contraction of a disease like this would be almost inevitable. The reason why I say this is because most disease are contracted from person to person, airborne contamination, but because this disease is already very complex, drinking water would without a doubt be contaminated with the disease. What happens to blood from corpses? Even if not contaminated with the disease, bodies get infected or decay, which runs off into the natural aquifers feet below the ground. This runoff water is everywhere, whatever water we drink, will be contaminated. So to be extra careful (these aren’t in order):

1. Boil the water!!!!!

When in doubt, boil the water… not simmer… BOIL. But to be even more safe, I would get to higher ground where the only water that is coming to you comes from either remaining glacier or mountains from winters past. This is really the only way to know the water hasn’t become infected with the diseases or bacterium of the dead. This leads me into my next point:

2. Learn to make fires.

Staying dry and water are by far the most important survival tips. Water collection is also another key. Most people don’t know this but capturing “dew” and creating man made “salt water distilleries” isn’t as hard as one would think. Having this in your back pocket will allow you to survive for weeks without food. But food is important. Guns run out of bullets and make loud noise, I would use what Darryl uses to kill, a bow and arrow. It makes no noise and can be reused.

3. Proper killing utensil

Furthermore, basic knowledge of trap making and environment can help you to nest and get protein in your system. I would find a great sturdy tree and sleep high up in a tree as to get myself off the ground. All it takes is one zombie to have this need to leave its herd.

4. Establish a safe means of sleeping

What I mean by this is your in a world that is now infested with beings that aren’t reasonable, they don’t think, they act. You don’t want to die because you were unable or scared to go to sleep. Perch yourself in an elevated position as to make it impossible for others to reach you.

5. If possible, keep a pet!

You won’t understand the importance of a pet until you are by yourself with no one to share the extremes that you are in. As time proceeds, your brain starts to win. Humans need interaction or at least the acknowledgment that humans are still in existence. So a pet is a great way to keep your brain at bay if you have no one with you. I would watch “I am Legend.” A very important movie about the how fragile the human condition is.
