Zombie Survival Kit for College Students
- Water - You can live without food but not without water. Make sure you have at least a gallon as this is what you should drink a day.
- Radio with batteries - Although there might not be anything on the radio, it's good to have if someone does try to contact other humans.
- Flashlight with batteries - Would you want to be left alone in the dark during a zombie apocalypse???
- First aid kit - This you should already have prepared since you can just take the one from your room.
- Dust mask - The wind is going to blow dirt and dust around, you don't want to be breathing in the zombie dander.
- Moist towelettes - Use these to wipe your face and keep your hands somewhat clean.
- Garbage bags - Can be used to pick up trash or it can be used to wear when raining. Even as something to sleep in if it comes to that.
- Wrench - This can be used for just about anything. Taking out nuts and bolts, stirring your meal in the pot, or bashing a zombie in the head. Universal!
- Can opener - Of all things that will go bad, canned food takes a while. If you have a can opener you can open those cans without having to splatter them all over the place.
- Area maps - Keeping an area map will help you know where you are going and what you are headed into.
- Change of clothes - Wearing the same clothes every day can get quite nasty. One change of clothes can last you a while.
- Dish and utensil set - For when you do find that can of food and want to eat it without your fingers.
- One pot - You might be able to kill a dear or an edible animal and it's best to cook it somehow first. This can also be used for bashing zombie heads.
- Water proof matches - Fires are needed to keep warm, cook food, dry clothes, and to show zombies exactly where you are.
- Small fire extinguisher - Just in case where you are staying starts on fire or you need it to bash a zombie in the head.
- Extra batteries - Don't be left in the dark or without the radio.
- Bats, swords, machetes, and daggers - These weapons save on ammo and are easier to carry around. However, you will have to clean them off every now and then.
- Pistol - Always good to have one of these. Make sure you have enough ammo and are at least able to hit the target before you go out zombie hunting.
- Compound bow - Super quiet, you can get the zombies without the others hearing you. However, you shoot an arrow, and unless you want to go retrieve that arrow, it's gone for good.
- Shotgun - Loud, yes, but you don't have to be a good aim to use one of these bad boys.
- Sniper Rifle - Ah, the best of the best. Long range weapon with large enough bullets to take down just about anything. Can be really loud and have a strong kick.
