How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse: Dry Runs…

Hello out there!

So we all know it’s coming right? I mean it’s inevitable—at least some of us think it’s definitely going to happen.

And by ‘it’ I’m referring to the Zombie Apocalypse…

So have any of you done a dry run? You know, one of those fun runs that involve hordes of the living dead trying to trip you up? I’ve always wanted to try one, but just haven’t been able to find the time.

But that’s going to change, by the end of 2015, I’m going to do one. Anyone with me?

How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse: Alternative Uses!

Good old talcum powder—possibly just baby powder to you—but who knew it had so many other uses??

talc

Now I don’t think it matters much which brand you choose, but when the dead rise, you’re going to want to have this versatile item in your survival gear! So what else can you use it for?

  • dry shampoo
  • removing sand – just spread it where you have sand and see how easily it slides off with a little swipe of the hand
  • remove grease stains – after the end, clothes are going to be hard to come by and no one wants to look like a slob…
  • prevent chaffing – IMPORTANT!! Chaffing may make you run slower!!
  • freshen shoes – you’re probably only going to have one pair and a little freshness goes a long way…
  • repels ants – if it’s not Zombies. it’s ants. You’re welcome.
  • cools skin – ahhhh!
  • useful as a deodorant substitute – your friends will thank me.
  • soothe dry skin – moisturizer may be in short supply so smooth on a little talc and remain baby soft where it counts

So what other uses for talcum powder do you know of? Tell me in the comments!!

How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse: New Weapon!

I first saw this weapon a number of years ago and I have to say, it made just as much sense back then that it does now!

Stylish and functional!

How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse: New Skill!

Many of you out there know I am a Walking Dead fan. I enjoy watching the show and from time to time, I sit on my couch and scream at the television. Everything is so easy and logical from where I sit, but I’m not sure that I’d be so level-headed if put into the situations the survivors experience.

That being said, someone please tell me why there wasn’t a rendezvous point of some kind discussed?? When the prison was overtaken, everyone scattered. I get that it may have been from necessity, but surely there must have been some forethought?

We all knew the fence wasn’t going to hold up, especially not with the increasing pressure from the growing hordes. So the threat of needing to leave the prison had to have crossed someone’s mind at some point. And why would it happen in an organized manner?

So this is my advice to you – if you find yourself in any situation where you may be separated from your group: even in the world we live in today not just during the Zombie Apocalypse, take a moment to arrange a central rendezvous point to meet at should you all get separated.

It’s really not a bad idea. And should there be something particularly terrible going on, have a secondary rendezvous point. It only makes sense.

Besides, you’ll likely have a better shot of reuniting with your group and it may help to alleviate any unneeded panic in searching…

How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse: Weapons!

Okay I saw this graphic and I absolutely had to share it! So if the Zombies came, what bundle would you want?

I’ve got to say I really like the looks of Expert Hunter (6), Angry Texan (7), U.S.A. Navy S.E.A.L (4) and Japan’s Samurai (5). My overall choice on the list (and I was going to say all of it but I’d never be able to lug it all around with me) is:

Expert Hunter!

How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse: Skill Training

You’re going to need to have some basic skills if you’re going to survive. When the dead rise, there’s likely going to be limited access to technology so Google isn’t going to help you…

But what can you do now? Learn things. Simple first aid, how to build a fire, what you need to purify water, how to collect water – the list goes on. Here’s a nice little image that should help you with one of the necessities of life.

Water. You’re going to need it, trust me!

Plus, if worse comes to worse, the hole may prove valuable as a Zombie trap!

How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse: New Shelter!

Okay I’ve seen this house around the internet many, many times and I have to say I want it! It would be way to awesome to not have, even if the dead don’t rise…

How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse: New Vehicle

Ever wondered what would happen if you needed to hide during the Zombie Apocalypse? And I’m not just thinking about hiding from the zombies, but also the looters and scavengers as well. There’s not accounting for how much of the time you’ll need to stay off someone else’s radar, but this next vehicle just might help with that…

Looks like a normal cord of wood doesn’t it? Well it’s not!

Here’s what it looks like on the inside – just the type of place you’ll need to relax when the sh*t hits the fan!

I believe the guitar is optional…

How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse: New Vehicle!

Have you all heard about Ford’s new car? It’s solar-powered!! It also has an electric battery component and a back-up gasoline tank. But think about it for a second… After the end occurs, petroleum refinement is going to grind to a halt and most supplies of gasoline will dry up fairly quickly. An electric battery will last a while, but the sun’s not likely going to stop shining right?? And the beauty is that the battery recharges without needing to be plugged in! A perfect solution for when the power grid goes offline!

Take a look at the pictures – I’m sure it’ll eventually be available in SUV models too!

Fancy huh? What a great idea!! Way to go Ford – you’re thinking like a prepper!

Oh and here’s a video!

How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse: New Equipment!

On Monday I was having a discussion with a very good friend about Zombies and killing them – the methods we might use, what firepower we’d like to have and other such stuff. He was of the opinion that having a mounting bracket or some such device on the end of a gun would be an asset for when you need to clear a dark room. I’m not against that, but when asked, I had to tell him I’d rather not have my only light source at the end of my barrel.

So faced with that, my friend asked what I’d rather have. Of course, I flippantly answered a light switch that worked, but we can’t have it all can we? After chuckling for a bit, I gave him my real answer – a head lamp.

It’s something I can wear on my head, the light will point in the direction I’m looking while casting some additional diffused light around me and it will leave my hands free to fight should I need them.

What are your thoughts? Have you thought about the need for additional lighting? If you haven’t, perhaps you should…
