How to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse
Tip #1 - Zombies Are Not Too Bright
Tip #2 - Avoid Anything Promoted As New And Improved
Tip #3 – Beware Of Your Chosen Information Sources
What You Need While You Are Still At Home
The first thing to keep in mind before the zombie outbreak is that the longer you can hide at home, the better off you’ll be – for now. This is why you need to collect all the essentials while you can so that once things go sideways you’ll have a fighting chance.
The most important item on your home survival list should be large water bottles. Once the zombies start to spread their virus you’ll want to be sure you have a lot of water on hand before the water source is contaminated.
What You Will Need While You Are On The Road
Sooner or later the zombie outbreak will take over your neighborhood. At that point you will be faced with having to hit the road in an effort to stay ahead of the virus. This means taking a vehicle that hopefully you loaded up with extra fuel cans.
Assuming you took care of that, there will be other items you will need while on the lam. One gallon water bottles will be essential to your survival.
What You Will Need While Running From Zombies
Even if you took every precaution necessary you will either run out of gas or get run off the road by a crazed zombie driving a Greyhound bus. When this happens you’ll still be able to keep ahead of those zombie bastards by running. Remember, the undead are not very fast so you will have a slight advantage in keeping some distance away from those that have noted your movements.

What You Will Need When Joining another Pack of Survivors
It will happen. If you have managed to put enough distance between you and the zombies you will eventually come across another group of survivors. Before accepting their invitation to be part of the gang, you will need to be on the lookout. Should the zombie virus morph during the months (fingers crossed you last this long) you have been dodging them, your human detection skills will be tested.

Other Valuable Tips To Survive The Zombie Outbreak
Stay Away From Crowded Areas
Wear Clothing That Helps You Blend Into Your Surroundings
Bland is good when it comes to hiding or running from a zombie. They can’t see very well so if you choose to dress as you would out hunting – in light reflective vests or bright colors to avoid being shot by another hunter – you are also allowing yourself to be a zombie target. Camouflage confuses them. Three-piece suits attract them. Kilts, on the other hand, go unnoticed with zombies in Great Britain but are as obvious as a red flag in other parts of the world.
Whatever You Do, Stay Hydrated
This is where it is important to run with a small pack of survivors. Someone is going to have to be in charge of water detail. That means seeking safe sources, collecting the empty water jugs and refilling them when possible and all other water-related chores.
Therefore, do not give up any opportunity to refill water. It never hurts to have more water stored than anything else. A regular human being can survive seven days without food, but only three days without water.
Rationing may become part of the job description, depending on the supply and how fast your group is going through it.
