Part 1: The overall Zombie Apocalypse guide
I’m sure you’re thinking, “What’s this guy know about the zombie apocalypse that I haven’t read in all the other zombie apocalypse stuff?” Well, probably nothing, but who knows?! Maybe I’ll drop a nugget of knowledge here and there to help you out, so what’s the harm in reading on? Now, most of us are not end of the world preppers or military weapon stockpilers or super duper handy people that can fix/ build anything, am I right?
So mostly, this guide will be for the average Joe working with average stuff around the house or things you can quickly scavenge. Hopefully, this will be more relatable and understandable for those of us who typically work in a cubicle all day to come home and relax in our homes with the TV or computer on for endless entertainment.
And for those of you that do, let me start out with one major point that will be a matter of life and death when the brain chompers come for all of us…Cardio. I know, I know, I said the “C” word with the worst connotation attached it to right after the main “C” word, but let’s face it! If you can’t run, you will die. Heck, a brisk walking pace that you can keep up for at least 15-20 minutes will most likely get you out of trouble, so I’m not saying you need to be out there running marathons! But you should at least be able to climb a flight of stairs without getting winded! Feel me?
Oh, I know most of you are thinking, “If I get in a jam, I’ll just fight my way out!” Good for you! Glad you have that fighting spirit! Let’s say you have to swing an axe or bat or something heavy for a couple of minutes while briskly walking and running? Or better yet, grab a bat, go outside and hit a tree for a couple of minutes. Go ahead, I’ll wait. See my point? Sweating like a pig and breathing hard? Even fighting requires some stamina and cardio! Just try to get outside and use the legs that will save your life and walk, fast walk, jog, run, whatever for 15 or 20 minutes. Something is better than nothing! Okay, off my soapbox now on cardio.
With this guide, I’ll touch on a few of the basic survival skills you will need in order to survive on your own at least long enough to meet up with someone who knows more than me and can help keep you alive after that. A few of the sections will be, “The Zombie Apocalypse has started…now what?”, “What clothes are your best bet to survive?”, “What vehicle or mode of transportation is the best?” and “Zombie Apocalypse weapon of choice”, among others.
You may be asking, what makes me think I’m up to this task? Well, I have a military background for one, so I probably know more than you about a thing or two. Keep in mind that I’m not saying I’m the best person for this job, but then, since no one’s ever lived through a zombie apocalypse, it’s all pretty much all guesswork and imagination. In that aspect, I’ve written quite a few movie scripts, had a few produced and even won an award for one and had a short story published. So, my imagination is up to par. Hope that answers that question for ya! If not, well tough. No room for crybabies in the ol’ zombie apocalypse!
One thing we all know for certain is that we have no idea how it’s gonna start. The options are plentiful enough, mutated virus, government test gone wrong, an act of God, crazy comet force or just the end of the world. Which means, we have to be on the lookout at all times for the inevitable zombie apocalypse! Stay vigilant!
