Do you think that you are a killer? Can you take someone out without having second thoughts? Can you do the impossible and the necessary to keep your loved ones alive when the shit hits the fan? I ask this question because you much like myself would be interested to see how a zombie apocalypse would actually turn out. Questions that I have would be, will there be food, and if so enough of it? Will people stay as a community or will they branch off and make survival of the fittest the way to live? When I start getting into hordes of the dead will I have the supplies necessary to kill them, well kill them again? Even more important when I do kill them, when I close my eyes at night will I see them when I dream? Will they haunt me and make me have nightmares eventually making me no better than one of them, making me insane with the thoughts that I’m literally a serial killer but only preying on the dead? These are things I present to you not to scare you but things to consider. Having a mental preparation for the dead rising is just as important as having a physical preparation for them coming after you and being able to keep moving.
The thing that makes me nervous is that people’s good humanity will not be there when the time comes, that there will be worries and stresses that we are not prepared for. Those that rely on medicine both for physical and mental health will not have the supply that they need. What I ask is what will happen? You will not be able to go to a pharmacy and with laws on medicines our best bet would be hiking it to Mexico where people are allowed to buy drugs over the counter, cheaper, and without a prescription. You won’t be able to drink the water, but when the people who make sure that your water is safe now to eat are gone how long do you think it will be safe?
In closing supplies, get supplies, get prepared, put that shit away in your head that will make you doubt yourself and others in your family because in the end they might be the only ones you can count on. Also if you are like me you have day dreamed about where you will go when the shit hits the fan, make sure you have a second place, if you need to drive to get there what if a EMP hits with the initial outbreak. Could you get there by bike or foot? What would you do if you had to have a second spot to go to, do you have a second spot to go to? Are you scared, are you thinking, are you ready?
