Day 31 of the Zombie Apocalypse -
Have they reached Chicago yet? I heard the East Coast states have begun erecting a wall to keep out the invasion; it won’t work. So far my group (down to 15 now) has staved off attacks with fire and walking at a slightly faster pace, though I fear they may learn to run soon…
I’ve studied hours of Thriller footage with the hopes of getting inside the demonic minds of the undead. We tried choreographed dancing and 8 of us were mauled immediately. I should have paid more attention to The Walking Dead… We need a better way out.
Our world will not go down as long as I’m still breathing…
There’s so much death and destruction around us. I’m not sure how much longer we can hold our current position. We need resources. We need weapons. We need vehicles. We’re not going down quietly. It’s time to kill these bastards- again. God speed.
Mobile Defense Supplies List
Heavy duty off-road type vehicles. Suggestions as follows:
Hummer H2 (any version will do), Land Rover Defender
Watched Zombieland once, good enough for me. Perfect for dealing with unruly dead, these things act as people catchers- and destroyer to all things rotting flesh. Interior room for makeshift turrets and cargo- whatever’s left anyway. And military tested but this is a whole new beast we’re up against. Watch fuel gauges, these things suck down gas.
Dodge Ram, Ford SVT Raptor
If your numbers are few or less, these off-road regulars will do just fine. They’re also good for scouting and protection for any convoys. Take one or two perched in the bed and fire at will. Beds also make great storage places for extra gas, food, water. We’ve had one of each for a week; last night a zombie took off in our ATV. Lock your equipment at night.
Nissan Xterra, Toyota FJ Cruiser
We’ve found in large numbers these capable rides on abandoned lots and doomed driveways; their commonality brings them value and the Xterra and FJ Cruiser are adept on less than desirable conditions when needed, which has been the case more often than not. Warning: be careful with the Cruiser, as in & out access can make for snagged clothing which leads to lethal bites.
Mercedes Benz Unimog Expedition Camper, EarthRoamer XV-LT
Livable vehicles. Having an enclosed livable base camp is key, preferably one that’s mobile. Smaller and less invasive than RVs, we met a group with an EarthRoamer just outside of a blood bank; turned out they were a family of zombies. Husband, wife, 2 kids. We talked for 10 minutes and I thought the wife was hitting on me; turns out she just wanted my heart…
There was another rumor floating around that a small municipal airport outside of Flagstaff had a couple of these ‘flying cars.’ Rumors, heresay…That’s all we have now. With enough clearance you could be airborne in an instant and last I checked the undead can’t sprout wings. Nobody here has a pilot’s license, but how hard could it be?
From my limited research, I’ve learned that the ultimate survival vehicle is…
I’ve heard about these urban legends: 13,000 lb. curb weight. 23,000 lb. GVWR. 300 HP and 660 lb.-ft. of torque with diesel; gas engine available- these vehicles are manufactured armored cars. Twice the size of a hummer and has a surprisingly upscale livable interior. The Knight XV was apparently designed for disaster; it can handle a few lost souls. Someone said they were over $600,000 normally, but it’s a safe bet that the car dealers won’t haggle too much. With one of these, you’ll make it to the end credits no matter wha
