The Queen of Halloween (or at least Princess) friends want me to do their make-up, I even scared Captain America as a Mummy!

They're coming to get you Barbra

The famous words spoken in the cemetery in the original Night of the Living Dead

Zombies aren't necessarily created by toxic waste (but I'm NOT willing to find out...although I do have an Ex-I dubbed the "Zombie Faced Freak of Nature' being he used to bite my head like one! :-) lol) or some virus etc. Zombies are usually created in Haiti with voodooo (or is it hoodoo) by a witch or BOKOR. Their Souls becoming trapped in limbo and their bodies forever cursed. This kind are literally mindless, as the person who created them controls them; They don't speak, other than maybe a UUUGH (groan) and do walk slow.

Attack Kit & Warning System

Zombie workout

Participate in a few of these!

Zombie 411

Do you really think you'd walk or even run after being in the ground filled with embalming fluid and even if so, rigamortis which stiffens your muscles (which would be very lacking depending how long you've been in the ground, like what happens to those with an injury & not using those muscles) think of it as Arthritis in death. It would slow you down as well as depending on how much you've decayed. Then there's the skeletal zombies where they almost desintergrate as they walk.

Well now with the way zombie movies are, some of them move quite fast, even run, they seem to have their lively wits about them, using cell phones, remembering how tools are used and more.

Some tell-tale signs there's a zombie about...Look among your friends, do any of them have glassy eyes &/or a gravely voice (if if they've been screaming a lot)? Have no personality & excessively drool? (esp. when you duck your head down near them?) Then you've got a zombie on your hands...

In the movies some zombies have been created by Toxic Waste. (think return of the living dead) They are created by Intergalactic radioactivity, industrial waste (think Toxic Avenger, though those are more B-grade comedy) Military canisters with labels reading "WARNING DO NOT INHALE" certain heavy metal bands, and too much TV or video games. The college students with way too many all nighters, and those excessively on their mobile phones. These radio active zombies seem that the contamination makes their appetites more ferocious, makes them stronger & they don't have to worry about rotted limbs falling off,or rotting for that matter.

Someone that has been Exposed to Zombies (a bite, or inhalation of a leak from said canister) will show symptoms of:

a Headach, stomach cramping, arms & legs cramping (rigormortis setting in) Freezing Cold, bruising all over the body, No blood pressure, pulse, or other vital signs.

Being folowed by a zombie?

Run & DO NOT Look back. If you come across some sort of sports helmet or hard hat... stick it on your head & make sure its strapped down! (this is a good idea to add to your Zombie Apocolypse bug iut bag!)

Voodoo zombies can be killed by salt, while regular zombies should be bashed or shot in the head destroying the brain. Some have tried buring Zombies, but this is not a safe method as if its the mutated kind...they'll just multiply from the fumes of the radioactivity burning off them.

Know the Signs of infection

Survival goods-Besides watching the Walking Dead

A Bug Out bag is an emergency bag, some are for a single person or family with food, water clothes & other emergency supplies (depending on area etc) to use. They can be for 72 hours or just a general. Below you will find my long time & all terain bag contents

Critical Survival Skills

Survival Transportation

My preferance would be a tank.. but the closest would be a Hummer! I wouldn't need a tent & could sleep in it! Plus... It can hold the motorbike & if I've got a car guy.. he can soup up the engine to be a sports car like one. (or at least maybe get some NOS system on there. The only problem with vehicle transport is.. Well GAS! Eventually it will no longer be made, & the pumps (unless there' a generator for electric) won't work So be sure you also have a couple gas cans for refills.

The gas can also be used for Moltov 'cocktails' to put a fire barrier between you & the zombies just be sure you speed off before they get near the vehicle or you if you are outside of it still.

Ships are good, but once the food runs out there, are you going to swim back to shore?
