Zombie Apocalypse Survival Skills

If you ever find yourself in a zombie apocalypse there are a few basic survival skills you should know. First you should know how to sneak around. Zombies are often drawn in by the slightest sound. 
Knowing this, learning how to be stealthy would be beneficial for any potential survivor. Usually the quietest way to sneak around is crouch walking or just walking very slowly. Running will generate noise and alert nearby zombies. 

Even if you have a weapon this isn't always a wise idea. Remember playing hide and seek as a kid? This teaches a very useful part of stealth- being able to hide efficiently could mean the difference between you living, and being zombie food. A proficient hider can hold out for as long as they need to. 
Also being able to shut up would be an amazing skill to have. If you ramble on and on, you may end up become food quick, or being sacrificed for the good of the group. If you're in a group that is. 

Another skill includes learning to control your bladder. Being a zombie apocalypse, going to the bathroom is going to become an increasingly dangerous task. If going in a public bathroom, make sure to check all stalls, and then lock the door if possible. Bathrooms, such as ones in private residence may be a lot easier to use safely. 

Restrooms also give the possibility of keeping up with personal hygiene. It's important to keep up with personal hygiene while holding out. 

Next is learning to get rid of picky food habits. You will be forced to eat what's available or starve during a zombie apocalypse. 

Remember to ration the food, when you find it so it lasts for as long as it possibly can. Stockpiling it is always a good idea. Even if you have to eat once a day, it will help you to survive longer. Keep in mind that only the zombies food source is usually the easiest to obtain where as survivors have a harder time. 

Also learn how to operate efficiently on low amounts of sleep. Sleep can be very dangerous, as you are very vulnerable during sleep and can easily be eaten. 

Next learn how to use a blunt weapon or a gun efficiently. Remember the only way to kill a zombie is destroying the brain or removing the brain. It is unwise to practice marksmanship during a zombie apocalypse, for you never know when you will need that ammo.

Zombie Assault What would you do?

Let us pretend that there is a zombie assault happening right now in your town.  You cannot drive because your car is broke down, and the neighbors’ cars are out of gas or already gone.  

You are held up in a house with a friend who eats a lot, with your kids and the food is running low. Poor Kids risked their lives for that food, while you kept a look out for the zombie assault.

Your teenage children can help shooting zombies and all the food you have in your house is food they went out and grabbed.

The kids found ammo, guns and other weapons at the home of a local fanatic.  Their new favorite activity is Zombie killing.  They are even keeping score!  Each day more and more of the walking dead visit your neighborhood. Many are stacked like cordwood in your front yard forming a barrier of gore.

The house is all-secure. Your quick thinking son got the brilliant idea of layering concrete over your windows as a preventive measure.  He even left peepholes or gun holes in the concrete to defend his home.

Your daughter found a car that has been converted to run on used cooking oil.  She parked it outside your home and ran inside to tell you. You are so grateful that you did not complain that she has no license.   She saved your butt.

The only problem is that the small car will only hold a three people and there are four of you. No way you can fit all four of you in the car and still have room for the guns, ammo, weapons and food she stocked in there.

Your son yells, MOM they found us.  The dang zombie assault keeps coming at your house full force. You got three seconds to figure out how to get three of you to the car.  As the four of you are running to the car for your escape, you need a quick plan. Who do you trip so they become zombie food so the other 3 can get away? 

Leave a comment below and tell me how you would handle this situation.
