I live in a small city.(yes,city)

The first thing i will do is barricade the house gate will car(of course,keep my family in the soldier base.) ,then loot the 24/7 shop.

My weapon could be anything "The only way to survive is grab whatever it could get to you hand." but my first weapon is Katana(stored in my brother room,it was not sharp either,but still can use to stab and slice with the edge.)and iron pipe,just beside the gate(or in it?).If i am prepare,i will choose to loot the gunshop(must got no much left),tool shop(It was build last year,i can see power drill(one from dead rising)chainsaw(omg,i love it but messy,but still i can't handy it.too heavy for me.)in that shop.and looking for my friend(hope they survive)and another survivor.

Note ^ is kinda messy.

Place that need to barricade in house is:

1)back door(too old just for locking)i will nail as much broad at it as possible.

2)window beside the backdoor,i just cover it will black cloth,so the zombie can't see the light.

3)gate,since the gate is the same long as car,i just park the car in front of it(so we need to climb over the car.

Place that slow zombie can't get in.

1)air window(how should i call,window at the ceiling?)so i will place the ladder and reach the rooftop(safe even you jump down.)

That all,hope you understand my poor grammar(some asshole hate it.)btw i am 16.

i would hit that gun store that's way back in the mazes of a huge neighborhood full off rich people who would all be zombies and get a whole crapload of shotguns pistols and other guns and a whole ton off ammo load it into my wifes minivan and raid convinces stores for supplies and try not to get a in conflict

I would, first, grab my wooden staff (I'm not shiting, it was hand made in Africa (Kenya, I believe) and damn is it strong) and try to find any good wooden or metal baseball bat. There is a gun store not far from my house so I'd stop by there and get an accurate, yet light and lacking on recoil .22 semi auto as well as a Remington or Mossberg. I would then head to the countryside, because there we can forage for ourselves, and there would be less zombies there.

Also, are we talking about 28DL8er zombies where they run and you can just shoot them like a normal person, or are we talking Max Brooks, slow, but the brain must be destroyed?

This is an easy question for me. Living in Seattle i am close to the water and the Puget Sound. In the sound the US Navy and Marine Corps maintains a privet self contained island base where naval warfare exercises are held and submarines are docked. This is the perfect survival location. I live on lake Washington so I would be as simple as running down to the dock with some food ammo and my mini 14 and making my way to the ocean and than to the island. I can only hope a contingency plan hasn't been put into place and I'm not shot on sight! :unsure:

I would make a flame-thrower out of a water pistol filled with lighter fluid. Strap a grenade to a knife, grab myself a remote control plane and a minigun and just sit in the middle of the road daring anything to come get me.

I would seek shelter in Academy Sports and Outdoors, because there's only 3 entrances, and they sell guns there. >=]

I'd get out of town and take it easy for the two weeks it would take for the living zombies to starve, and the dead ones to decompose. Then go back home and try to make up all the credits the zombie apocalypse cost me.

There is a relatively large amount of urban/suburban areas surrounding my house. There is lots of open farm land that people like to call "the middle of nowhere" surrounding the city and towns. It would be very difficult to get there on foot, I would plan on reinforcing my car and making a run to the open areas as soon as possible.

My theoretical plan would be to fuck off out to the archipelago along the coast of Stockholm, shack up, have a nice cup of tea and wait for the whole thing to blow over.

In "reality" though, I would probably just perish. Which would be for the better, since without most of my family I would probably just break down rather quickly, due to knowing that they've most likely died unpleasant deaths, alongside many others.

And I'll be sure to use your dismembered limbs to beat down zombies. At least you fought the zombie hordes in death, even if not in life.

With your physique I would not expect that many swings, I appreciate the gesture though.

Heres something I've thought about before...

Initial Hours: Gather immediate supplies. Household weapons, food & water, Maps, clothes, cell phone, etc.

Gathering time : About 1 hour before threat is immediate ( I live away from main part of town.)

Initial Inventory: (Things from my House)

Primary Weapon: Crowbar

Secondary weapon: Hammer (in case of close encounters)

Support: sturdy military knife (I collect Military stuff)

Outfit: Camo hoodie over a light under armor t-shirt. Some kind of gloves. Olive green cargo pants with lots of pockets. a web gear belt with a drop leg Dump pouch and a tactical butt pack. ( Airsoft related, but the gear is worthy). Kneepads , and zipper combat boots. Large blackHawk backpack, with built in hydration pouch.

(alternate outfit) MarPat digital cammies, boonie hat, and same gear.Belt holster and backpack ( airsoft )

Food:

Sammiches

canned stuff (spaghetti o's anyone?) a few cans

couple Bottled waters and a hydration pack full of water ( from the collecting)

Power bars / granola

Gatorade powder mix

Other stuff:

Maps of town and surrounding towns. Road maps , and whatever land maps I can find and print.

Extra clothes ( you never know right?)

Digital Camera ( again, never know)

Cell Phone ( in the case that it will work for at least some amount of time)

Binoculars or rifle scope ( for long distance spotting and what not)

Escape plan : Vacation of My House because threat has arrived or is imminent.

1. Plan my safe haven. I know of a few nearby public facilities that could suffice as a temporary place of peace.

2. Get Family out and send them to the location and tell them to lock it up. ( I'm sure they would want me with them , but there are things i would have to do first , and the way we get along, survival would be a serious problem if they were with me. I believe i would be better by myself. )

3. Contact nearest friends and inform them of the location.

4. Go to nearest and get some damn guns and ammo. ( .22's , 9mm, and .308's. Anything that fires these common rounds would be fine by me. )

5. Gather some more food, and medicine for the "safehouse"

6. Get back to the safe house and await news, plan an escape route and new location just in case.

I'd pretty much wait it out in this location to see what kind of plans arise for the "authorities" , if location is compromised , move to a new one and plan for next steps. At some point ( this being the apocalypse and all) I would attempt to head to the center of the us, all those wide open fields. I would try to find a place to call a home and teach myself (and whatever followers) to become self sufficient . Find a woman, settle down and well survive as long as I could.

First I would google how to hotwire a dirt bike and how to hotwire a car.

I walk down the street to my neighbor, who is a licensed gun dealer, and get a rifle and a pistol. Then I get food. Not from the store though, the stores will be mobbed. Instead, I break into houses and steal the food they have (mostly Top Ramen and other light imperishables) while they hustle and bustle to the store.

I would drive to my dads to pick him up and bring him back over here (arizona)

Then I would go to the any one of the Arizona State Pens

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Arizona_state_prisons

Prisons are meant to keep people in, so of course it would be good at keeping people out.

i would arm myself with a crowbar and a semi automatic rifle

i would grab food and other esentials

then i would head to a school

any high school or college

they have big bulky doors plenty of objects to barricade with,AND if you have never been there before there is always maps for new "students"

also on the maps they show escape routes encase of fires or zombies...

what do you think of my plan :P

Its funny, i've been thinking about this lately and some days ago i was in the car with my bro and i saw this big storage facility close to amsterdam and it had really big walls and windows only on high-parts and i knew it would be extremly hard for me to get in there withouth a key. And that's what you need, if you can't even get in there with a human brain then its going to be 10 times harder for a zombie to get in there. Zombies aren't capable of running,jumping and climbing on zombies shoulders or driving cars,trucks to BURST into the facility's walls so that would be the perfect place for me.

However, i have no idea what they storage in there, it might be furniture, stuff that's totally worthless and that's probably another reason to not go there because you never know what you'll find there and if you do get there and you find out its only furniture storage you're fucked since the whole world is turning into one of the zombies.

I've saw some other replies and i saw that some people would stay home and defend their houses with a shotgun and that's just not a good thing to do lol unless you live up high in this high appartment and you can cut off the public staircases ( and i dont know how you will be doin that lol ) but yeah ;)

I really recommend you peeps to read Max Brook's survival guide because it gives you a few ideas and suggestions where you haven't thought about yet like i never thought of destroying staircases or fill a bathtub full of water whenever the apocalypse happends lol.

Other than that,

If the storage place did have food supplies, i would be living forever unless some people would visit the building aswell but the building itself is miles away from the city amsterdam. You can tell yourself that you will just barricade yourself and hide in the shadows until the apocalypse is over but it takes a few years already until all the dead bodies are gone from the streets and they probably won't be starving and rotting on the streets fast because there's so much people in this world ;)

Here in Holland we'll all be fuck'd whenever a zombie apocalypse comes since not alot of people actually buy weapons here in Holland, its barely legal aswell i think and its such a small country with 20 million people.

In a movie scene i would be probably

going to Alaska and make a settlement there or close to a desert or something but that also is a disadvantage since its not easy to get water and food there.

I don't have any weapons except for a M16 automatic airsoft weapon, it shoots little yellow balls but there should be metal balls for sale somewhere that might cause some damage but i would probably be using some tools like home-made weapons, mixing tools together with knifes and make my own halberds or somethin ( lol )

But yeah, you also have to keep in mind that people with overweight will die first ( if zombies can run ) and one-legged people will be doomed . . .

Imagine yourself blind in a zombie apocalypse, all you hear is noises, screaming people and you just don't know what to do, where to go to unless you have help but i'm pretty sure being blind will be instant kill most of the time :)

I am living outside the village,we got our own Restaurant,enough water and beer, and the Gun club is by our house. (no neighbors)

Its hard to get weapons in Germany, so I probably use a bow to penetrate zombies,should work out :D. We got enough material to barricade the restaurant.

As soon a SINGLE zombie shows up, I'll grab my gun (colt python, shitloads of ammo) and a machete from that one surplus store (no point naming it, you probably don't know where it is) along with whatever else I need and go to the airport. I'll just slice up/climb the fence, though, because I don't want to be in a crowd when it hits the fan. I would get into a plane with a small number of people in it, and have them fly that shit to wherever the worst weather is in Alaska. Chances are, with poor virus transmission in cold weather, and dead meat freezing so easily, the infection wouldn't have spread up there. If it had, we'd have cold weather clothing I'd bring from the surplus store, giving us the advantage over the slow-ass dead.

Low population + terrible weather = great survival conditions against zombies.
