My house in painted post, NY. Land is easily livable, plenty of things to eat, fresh clean water in almost unlimited quantities in a well in my hills. A creak that when it all goes down i will dam it off (EPA wont be around to say no) so ill have plenty of fish in a few seasons. My closest neighbor is a good distance away, the 1200acre state land is on the other side with open land front and back. The house would not do well in an all out assault but bug out will be easy. Preparations would be destroying the bridge that connects the road in front of my house to the southern part of my area. The north would be blocked with vehicles and fencing. The woods will spread out the horde to make them easier to pick off and the difficult landscape will slow them down drastically. I have plenty of storage for supplies, food, water, ammunition, etc. My basement is dry after i fix the heating system leak. The local population is only around 5,000-10,000 people total, many of who are thinking preparedness for snow storms and probably secretively zombie Apocalypse.
Walmart is in my mind a place to avoid, its going to be a first thought for a lot of people and when the horde charge in it will be first target for the onlsaught. Bugout would be the cabin in the hills behind my house. Not well made but far an off out of sight that only a few will make to the house. That is if they made it through the field, thick viscus mud, the randomly flooding back creek, up the narrow steep pathways, and over the plethora of fallen trees.

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.
Oh yeah, you're totally right. It's somewhat what I was aiming at; in the event of a zombie apocalypse, I'm completely and utterly doomed, due to the stupidity of others. The fact that Dutch weapon and self defense laws limit me to calling 'shoo, shoo' while defensively holding a candle (not lit, of course) isn't really helping. ;)
Slow zombies, evidently...

Me too, I live in England.......Come to think of it, I don't think I'd be allowed to hold a candle (even defensively) and it would be " Please 'shoo " in the palest pink voice I could manage :cry:

I'm a big fan of 'Bugging In'. I only work a few miles from my home. I've got a year's supply of food, guns and ammo, lots of medical supplies, and cooking/heating fuel. In isn't a bomb shelter, but I'm confident I could hold up there for a long time comfortably. Right now, finances being what they are, bugging out with the wife and kids isn't a good option for us. In the future all of my preparations will be focused to that end as that is where there's need.

I'd stay home, first thing I'd do is bleach my monstrous bath tub and fill that bad boy with water. Next thing I'd do would be to collapse the ..massively lost my trend of though just saw the hottest black woman ever.. sigh desperately need to grow a pair and talk to people seriously..

Lets see where would I go...

I'll have to answer in a moment I think I heard a kitty cat downstairs. Funny we don't have a cat. I'll just grab this cheap candle I got from the dollar store and go down and check. To bad the lights don't work well. They did supposedly kill that hokey-mask wearing guy last year that killed 39 people so what do I got to be worried about. They never found a body but you know rivers. Which reminds me glad I sharp end the chain the other day on the chainsaw. Boy, I hate relighting this candle with this cheap lighter that barely works. Hey think I heard the kitty cat Dow the dark path by all that junk. Well where did I put that chainsaw not where I thought I left it at?

Look guys I'll get back to you soon as I find that kitty cat.

I would live on a ladder because they can't climb ladders...

I wouldn't assume anything. Maybe they *can* climb ladders. Why not? Maybe they can swim? Maybe they can walk underwater and show up at supposedly safe islands. All bets are off, baby.

ill probably get sucked into the chaos of the initial panics and die with the rest of them like helpless cattles.. or try to make it out to a friends house bout 30mins out in the country(with 7 acres or more on every house their area, so plenty of clear views) and try to convince them to take me in while we come up with something?

where would I go,

I think the local jail it is built to keep people in, so it should keep people out, and you even have a yard to grow stuff in that is surrounded with chain link and razor wire.

plenty of cooking tools, and probably a big pantry, cooler, freezer, generators, and plenty of cells to secure my stuff in. and a look out tower, perfect for the zombie apocalypse.

This seems best. You're already getting the best Zombie training while you work! Hope you have some utilities after TSHTF, lights will come in handy when trying to find the right key(s) to get down to those dark fallout shelters. :roll:

Really depends on utilities for me. I don't live off the grid, and given this house is all electric, I'd be hot or cold, and in the dark while eating canned food cooked over a fire. Could be worse, we have a fireplace, light and heat! :wink:
