Do you think our government would be able to handle it first?

And what would be your plan?

I get the whole gather people and acquire shelter thing.

Give specifics.

What kind of zombies we talking here? Fast runners, slow shamblers? How intelligent are they? Do they need to feed to survive? Can they be taken out by mere mutilation, or only shots to the head? Are we talking the dead rising or an infection spreading through the living? What numbers is the outbreak when it's brought to the government's attention? Do they inform us when it's nearby? Be specific.

Commit suicide. No point in living through that.

If it's slow zombies, the government handles it.

Fast zombies, we might be f**ked.

1. Find weapons, preferably semi automatic

2. Steal book on how to fire, clean, maintain semi automatic

3. Take my trusty katana for back up (I actually have one)

4. Venture out to find a safe location away from large citites

5. Board up and secure said location.

6. Go find food, water, first aid kit and other supplies.

7. Wait. If the outbreak isn't handled or worsens, leave safehouse to find other survivors, military compounds etc.

  • Join a survival group with people I only know.
  • Get recourses, weapons, medical supplies.
  • Search for survivors or establish a camping zone.
  • Fight for life!

Honestly, I think the government would still be intact. So Washington DC and major cities in states surrounding it would probably be closed off as a "secure" zone.

I'm in the North East region of the US. If the zombie apocalypse went the way I just mentioned, I'd be fine.

Bug in, board up windows. We have a survival kit to last a few days pre-made (we live in kind of an isolated area, so there's a reason). Wife is good at gardening so we have a renewable food supply. I know how to/where to find water and how to purify it. We both own firearms and a plethora of bladed melee weapons.

So bug-in, ration up, keep quiet. Get to the roof if necessary.

@monsterstomp: Yes. Yes you can. I'd rather go out as a pile of ash if all else fails than eat people.

1. Gather food, weapon and isolate place with some communication mean. Access to television or internet.

2. Gather as much info on the zombie as possible.

3. Eventually, most of the chance are that world go through with superior firepower. A zombie doesn't stand a chance against a tank or even just a light machine gun in competent hands.

Agreed with above.

Of course, I'm taking my trusty Excalibur crossbow. Quiet is good.

Already own a ready to go pack should, y'know, an emergency occur that requires immediate evacuation, equipped with synthetic wear, protein bars and six bottles of water.

High ground and concealment is the key.

I have an awesome plan if the zombie apocalypse happens while i'm in school:

  1. Run to the DT room and steel some knives, saws, chisels etc.
  2. Go to the PE room and grab either a cricket bat or baseball bat and a hockey helmet
  3. Then run outta school and go to Tesco (a british supermarket) and grab as many supplies as I can.
  4. Go home and get some more supplies including a med kit, clothes and a survival book.
  5. Take the car (i know how to drive a car :D) and drive to this place I know that's completely secluded, with supplies and a TV.
  6. Barricade it and wait for the government to sort their shit out.

Thought about all this during history class...

June - December Plan

1. Bunker down in the basement or attic, grab my year's supply of cup ramen and cereals, along with a first aid kit, and a hunting slingshot out of my cupboards, and think for a while.

2. Realize that I live in a tropical country, meaning that zombies may rot faster.

3.Realize again that it's storm season (Explaining why I have those things above)

4.OH $4i7 A STORM!

5.Storm washes up zombies to sea, their natural habitat.

Make sure to get my Bestfriends. They are my exes so I gotta save them. Grab Some weapons, mostly to fight off what ever resistance We come in contact with. Take my ass my job. I work in a really nice Hotel downtown Miami. Baricade ourselves in a suite on the 50th floor. And drink champaigne and watch cable until Obama handles his respobsibilities.

My current government can't handle the nation finances so I doubt they could handle a zombie outbreak

My survival plan would be gather people, supplies, fortification and be Batman
