There are certain survival questions everyone should be aware of; and discussing these questions with close friends and family prior to a disaster or post apocalyptic scenario is a good idea.  Discussing, in advance, will help you to formulate plans of action to survive if and when a survival situation occurs.  Here are some of these questions.

  • How will you survive if there is a complete loss of law and order?  What if this scenario occurs when you are away from home?
  • If bands of looters are on your street causing havoc, how will you respond to that situation if law enforcement is no longer available?
  • How will you provide food and water for your family if grocery store shelves are empty and the supply chain re-stocking systems no longer exists?
  • How self sufficient are you if government support programs end or if electricity and garbage pickup are no longer operating or if currency becomes worthless?
  • How will you protect and provide for your family?  What will your policy be on providing assistance to friends, acquaintances, or strangers who are passing by?
  • Will you stay at your current location or head somewhere else?  If so what are the advantages and disadvantages to both options?

When disaster strikes the options to bug in (stay put) or bug out (leave) can be a hotly debateable topic.  Obviously each type of disaster scenario contains its own risks and there are many variables to consider when deciding whether to bug in or bug out.  Whenever possible and if the situation warrants bugging in, to me, is generally a better option.  Here are a few considerations why.

  • Most people do not have a well stocked, well fortified retreat to bug out to, way out in the backwoods or lightly populated country areas.
  • Living off the land is not as easy as they make it seem on television.  Food will be both scarce and labor intensive to acquire.
  • Roads will be congested, fuel aquisition will be problamatic, and looting and thuggery will be prevelant as tempers flare on the overly congested roadways leading out of the area.
  • If you have to abandon your transportation are you prepared or fit enough to walk a significant distance with your supplies and gear?
  • Bugging out can increase your likelihood of falling victim to predatory groups or of sustaining additional  injuries.

If the situation warrants it is generally better to stay put where you are with the emergency preparedness supplies you have already gathered in anticipation of disaster scenarios.  Follow your survival plan and adpat as needed.  Use the resources you have on hand to survive; and to overcome your obstacles.  You are in familiar territory when you stay put at your home for example and you will have access to all of your pre-stocked supplies and your defensive weaponry.

Will you be able to survive if a natural or manmade disaster strikes?  Your chances improve significantly if you have good plans and supplies to deal with your anticipated disaster scenarios. Whether its an earthquake, electrical outage, supply line distribution interruptions, civil unrest, societal breakdown, zombie apocalypse or whatever else you have anticipated; preparedness is essential to your overall survival chances.

Your survival war chest should absolutely include food, water, self defense weaponry, medical supplies, fuel, generator, water purification methods, heat making and light making capabilities, spare on hand cash, batteries, and methods of communications.  Considering that most stores especially supermarkets only carry a two day supply of food; if you haven’t stockpiled in advance, the food that you need, then supermarkets won’t be much help to you once their shelves are bare. Let’s face it if trucks aren’t running; then stores are not being re-supplied which means no food for you.

If you think you are going to live off the land think again.  It is much harder than it looks.  If it was easy then everyone would be doing it.  Many people quickly de-volve into animals when disaster strikes; so you need to become disaster self sufficient, if you and your family are going to survive. Advanced preperation, self reliance and the will and the skill to persevere are essential components to an overall state of disaster preparedness readiness.  So when you review your own situation; are you going to be able to survive?

Zombies can’t climb; so what does that mean when it comes to surviving the zombie apocalypse.  It simply means that if you can locate yourself somewhere high enough that zombies can’t reach; it increases your survival chances dramatically.  If the zombies come I would suggest having your survival retreat in a place similar to the image below. You won’t see any zombies capable of scaling these cliffs and a series of locked and tunneled passages will get you safely there; while keeping the zombie masses at bay.  Good luck and avoid those zombies at all costs.  One bite; one scratch and it’s all over.  Stay safe out there.

Martial law can be defined as the military taking control of a city, state or country and running it at their discretion.  The military would impose control on a civilian population when law and order cannot be maintained by the civil authorities.  Martial law scenarios would likely involve a restriction, erosion or suspension of your Constitutional rights by government decree.

In order to survive martial law the following things should be considered.  You will need to prepare beforehand by becoming as self reliant as possible; avoid traveling to any and all areas under martial law; do not draw attention to yourself or your family during times of martial law; stay informed and never accept the governments word at face value.  Remember your survival trumps obeying dictates.

A constant, armed military presence  and routine patrols by the military will be part of martial law along with curfews and vehicle checkpoints.  There will be people who masquerade as law enforcement to lure people into traps and attack them.  Do not fall for this.  You need to be extremely careful who you follow and whom you trust.

I love my country.  In my estimation it is the best country on planet Earth.  However with that said we are indeed heading in the wrong direction where dire consequences await the populace around every corner.  The mainstream media has failed us by no longer reporting things accurately; and as a nation we have never been further apart ideologically.  Yes in time there will be a course correction and things will return to a better state of affairs; but the turbulenent waters leading up to that time are going to be a rough ride.  It is imperative that Conservative ideas are once again enacted and ridiculous liberal lunacy is pushed to the side.  Long live Conservatism.

So the zombies have finally arrived……do you have what it takes to survive the ultimate zombie apocalypse?  Well we shall see.  The following methodologies are the best ways to survive in the event you happen to see any of these so called zombies staggering around your neighborhood.

  • Weapons, weapons, weapons, weapons, weapons.  Rifles, shotguns, handguns, plenty of ammo and mags as needed, sharp knives, battle axes and wrecking bars all will be required.
  • Train often with your weapons so you can wield them effectively against these re-animated corpses.
  • Make your home defensible; have plenty of plywood and nails for boarding up windows and reinforcing entry ways.  Use barbed wire fencing, tanglefoot wire and steel reinforced fencing as additional effective deterrents.
  • Use common sense.  Stay hidden when needed, patrol your perimeter frequently and work in teams whenever possible.
  • Get in shape.  Physical fitness is key to surviving a zombie apocalypse.  You must be able to walk long distances if needed and run quickly when the situation warrants regardless of age.  If you are out of shape survival will be made more difficult.
  • Look, listen and remain vigilant.
  • Avoid urban areas.  Suburbs and rural areas are much better.  If you live in the city move now to a nice area with plenty of wide open spaces.
  • Own the largest SUV possible, keep your gas tank and spare gas cans full and make sure your SUV can run down hordes of the undead without stalling by reinforcing the front and rear bumpers.
