Yeah its awesome! I mean zombies (or at least the stereotypical stupid ones) would probably walk on if they came across it in the middle of the night and you stayed silent. A threat from other people would be a whole different story, but at least you could get a better nights sleep knowing nothing will sneak up and munch on you

Unless the virus mutated and began infecting squirrels. Or you encountered a zombie on a pogo stick. Then you'd be screwed.

One of the only things I didn't like about this house was how zombie attack unsafe it is, lol. There's too many big, low windows, and we're on the corner. There's really only two streets in and out of town, and I'm surrounded by huge cities.

In World War Z he talks about how the Inland Empire is one of the last places in CA to be reclaimed, and that's where I live. He's right, too--it'd be a mess here. There's too many people, it's too sprawling, and there aren't enough natural resources to survive on, really. That, and to get out of the city type area, I'd have to travel 30+ miles. I have a bike, so that's doable, but most of it would be through very densely populated areas.

I live in the desert, so post-zombie, it'd be pretty bleak out here.

Realistically, though, I'd be like the first person bitten, so it's moot.

We have bug out bags and three day packs good to go here. for any sort of emergency really. Weather can turn nasty, and we do get tornados occasionally.

Plus, I live in and am from the south. Everyone I know has at least two guns.

the time to learn skills is before you need them, when you can afford to fail.

i could definitely use more food storage, medical supplies & gardening/dirt farming knowledge. maybe polish my welding & carpentry skills. more ammo would definetly help but isn't necessary.

first action, go door to door locating, aiding & organizing survivors in my neighborhood. this process would include taking a skills & knowledge inventory. survivors would be organized into 4 working sections. 1 section would be tasked w/care of the very young, elderly & others needing assistance. this section would also perform general support activities cooking, laundry etc. 2 sections would be on clean up. they would open houses, process corpses, recover animals belonging to the deceased, collect & process vital materials (food, medical supplies, weapons & tools) for communal use. the 4th section would be securing the subdivision, building fences & obstacles that channelize movement to controlled entry points. sections would be rotated daily, except maybe for leadership & kids 8-12 will work w/ the section collecting & processing materials.
once the neighborhood is secure, the security section will train in weapons & tactics, guard entry points & begin scavenging patrols. scavenging patrols will target ACO & pet stores (potential food & breeding stock), food, medical, tool, weapons & fuel sources. they will also take down fences to allow the livestock of the deceased to free range & possibly move them to a secure area. in the cases of survivors in isolated homes & farms, they would attempt to persuade them to move into the secure neighborhood temporarily. if they refuse the patrols would assist them in securing their locations.
once all the corpses in the neighborhood had been processed that section would take on the responsibility of organizing & repeating these actions in adjoining neighborhoods.

We just need a pre-determined Chaz meet up stop.

I'm married to an eagle scout, so I'm sure he has some useful survival skills...probably

The most serious threat to our area is earthquake (above the undead hoards) and yes, I do have a plan in the works.

The biggest PITA about an earthquake is that it can be so **** inconvenient to suddenly have your home unlivable - possibly in the middle of the night - in the middle of winter so I came up with a plan for a secondary small shelter that is unlikely to collapse in a earthquake, has a heat system, enough room for two to sleep, and backup supplies for about six months. I also decided I would get tie outs for the dogs since it's confinement that can come with me and it's very possible my fences will not be standing.

The major things it's lacking is backups of my medications, a better med kit in general, and an easier way to access the water storage. Also more people live with me now including little kids so it's something to consider should the proverbial poop hit the fan sooner rather than later.
