You know what makes the Zombie Apocalypse worth living? Besides bacon, nutella, cars and cars to choose from, and access to fancy penthouses? Women. Yep, the fairer sex. Honestly, I think that’s a strange adjective for us girls but I would say that if you ever go people watching, there are still more good looking women in the general population than men. Can’t say that will necessarily be so during the ZA, but we’ll get cuter and cuter as we lose more and more humans to the undead hordes.
This is my video intro to what I hope to be a recurring series that deals with issues specific to women during the ZA.
Zombie Prep - 05.16.2012
One of our Twitter Followers asked us the folowing question: “What are the top 10 items for your zombie apocalypse bugout bag?”
Great question. However, rather than just give you a list of 10 things, I wanted to go a little in depth to background for prepping a bugout bag. I also differentiate between a bugout bag and a grab and go bag.
I stress that everybody’s bag is going to be different, and depend on the environment they live in. However, survival needs aren’t going to vary that much since we are all physiologically similar.
To live through the ZPOC (zombie apocalypse), you’re going to have to address the following survival concerns:
1. Protection from exposure and the elements – exposure to temperatures just a little outside what you’re used to can kill you in hours.
2. Water – dehydration and sickness from drinking impure water can kill you in a few days.
3. Food – you can go a few weeks without food, but your physical and mental capacity will be severely impaired.
Additionally, your first aid and security needs are unpredictable, but when you need them – acute.
Generally weight and space are your enemies – think compact, light, and multi-use items. Fire is your friend, and has many survival uses – besides being able to ignite a zombie or two. You need a fire kit. A good fixed blade knife and some paracord need to be a part of your kit.
