where would you take shelter if zombies attacked?

I posted this on my fb page and someone said they'd seek shelter in the woods 0.o I personally would rather seek shelter indoors.

I'm bugging in on my own little piece of North Texas Prairie. Which incidentally has a open field of fire for about 3-400 yds or more on 3 sides and about 75 yds on the 4th side.
Every cloud has a silver lining. Except the mushroom-shaped ones which have a lining of Iridium and Strontium-90.

For now it's my home. I have a small attic in my garage with a retractable ladder/stairs. Enough room for my family to bug in for a bit. Then wait for my local group to figure out what to do next.

Most people would probably say at home, I mean it makes sense to hunker down where you've got your stuff, and hope for things to improve. It's probably your best bet for lasting as long as you can.

If people decided to leave, though, I imagine it would come in waves. The first wave of evacuation would be when things first started getting bad - major roads would be clogged, and even other side roads, too.

After a time, others' supplies would dry up, desperation would kick in, and people again would start hitting the roads to get out - granted, it would be more sporadic, but still there would be another round of traffic.

I know that a lot of people say that they wouldn't go on major roads, and take back roads to get anywhere - but don't you think that a TON of other people would think of that, too? Wouldn't smaller roads, by definition, not be able to handle the larger flow of traffic and clog faster than highways?

I just have this feeling that if things truly were bad enough, and evacuation were really necessary, that roads across the board would be in horrible shape from everyone who'd already tried to leave, and failed.

I feel like if you can't make it home, you probably can't make it. Period.

EDIT: Maybe get a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Make your own roads if you need to?

Home untill things settle down then I'd look at heading to somewhere like this.

Its Isolated, has Infrastructure and a very low population density.

At home or work until I was forced to leave. Then I have several fallback positions with relatives, several potential BOLs in most compass directions.

A sterdy house with few windows and lots of doors and a second level. hold out there until winter and wait for the Zombies to be frozen solid. then leave the house and find a good sledge hammer or a golf club. With the zombies frozen solid they can't lunge at me or bite, it would be like extreme whack a mole but without the holes.

Anoher SEPA guy here. My biggest concern is if the SHTF while I am working in Central Philadelphia. But even at home there is the concern of a great westward migration from the western portion of the city if s*** goes down, as I only live a few blocks from the edge of the city. But regardless, the plan would be to get home, hang there until no longer possible before heading towards Central PA or South Jersey.

This is totally true. Thought of South Jersey as more of a backup. Lack of access to that wonderful state may be prohibitive. Broad and Race you say? Small world. I work at 15th and JFK, across from City Hall.

Close all the blinds and hope no zombie is smart enough - or no resident stupid enough - to open the appartment gallery door. Once they get in, I'm in a glorious deathtrap with no way out. (Well, unless jumping down 2 floors into a hungry horde seems like an attractive idea.) On the bright side, I am hunting for houses in a less zombie-sensitive part of town.
Slow zombies, evidently...

Oh you know someone will open he door "to see what's going on" or "we need to help them". These are the same people that will go down into a dark unlit basement with a .99 Cent store candle and no extra matches, where 36 people have been killed by a hokey-mask wearing chainsaw toting serial killer that only comes out on Halloween because they think they heard a kitty cat done there.
