If the knowledge is revealed next week, I'll know what to do.
This is a discussion on What to include in your Zombie Apocalypse Kit? within the UFO's, Zombies, 2012, Aliens, Mayan, End of the World, Apocalypse forums, part of the General Discussion category; Let's say there will be an apocalypse next week, what essentials are you going to pack in your kit and why?...
Let's say there will be an apocalypse next week, what essentials are you going to pack in your kit and why?
If the knowledge is revealed next week, I'll know what to do.
Like anything else meet the essentials: water, food, shelter, fire personal protection, medical, communications. Decide: bunkering in or bugging out?

One of those plastic masks that surgeons and coroners wear to protect themselves from blood splatter. I can't watch a zombie movie or the walking dead without seeing people dripping wet with blood as they recklessly kill zombies at point blank range. Then, they somehow manage not to become infected as zombie blood drips down into their eyes, nose, and mouth. Once, I saw two characters make out and then have sex without even attempting to wipe the zombie blood off of their faces. Please explain to me how a zombie's bite can infect you but their blood, saliva, and other bodily fluids/parts don't seem to have any affect on the good guys?

A copy of the zombie survival guide and maybe some playing cards.
Oh, and one of those cool Gerber axe things everyone kills zombies with.
I hope that helped to clear things up.
With a week to prepare, I'd amass a gigantic, I'm talking "city block" sized, bonfire.
If Zeds are attracted to light and sound, give them something to seek out that also disintegrates them.
Whatever didn't find the fire would need to be dealt with another way.
If we're talking Romero/WWZ Zeds, then guns... lots of guns.
If we're talking TWD Zeds, a few handguns and a katana should do it.
I'd head for the coast, hop on the best boat I could find, and wait out the Apocalypse at sea.
Zeds can't swim and would make excellent fish food. I wouldn't even need to chum the water before fishing. You're all invited to my perpetual barge fish fry. Coordinates to be sent later.

I have a different take on zombies than Kauboy:
From the Paraquack book of prepper wisdom:
Zombie: [note upper case Z], a ghoul or reanimated human corpse. The term Zombie, an English word
is first recorded in 1819 by Robert Southey, in the form of "zombi", a Brazilian word. However the
Oxford English Dictionary gives the origin of the word as West African, and compares it to the Kongo
words nzambi and zumbi. While Zombies are said to be created by African or Haitian witch doctors
through the use of voodoo (in New Orleans pronounced with a hard letter o after the v) rituals and voodoo
drugs, no true Zombie has been found or examined by Western medical science and therefore is
considered part of folklore.
However the first re-animated dead were believed to have been from Africa. In Africa, a significant number
of tribes believed that a person had in fact not one but two souls. A “big” soul which was that which made a
person who he was, his intellect, memories, his essence. He also had a “small” soul which responsible for
the animation of the body. Witch doctors were supposedly able to reunite the “small” soul with a dead body,
thereby reanimating the body but were never able to reunite the “big” soul. Therefore the reanimated body
was not the person he was in life. The Prepper need not worry about the Zombie of folklore unless a new
unknown disease process comes about such as a mutated strain of Rabies or some other disease renders
the human brain so damaged that the actions of the human act in such a way that they imitate the Zombie of
folklore by trying to consume another non-infected living human being.
In the non-fictional reference for the modern Prepper, the zombie [note lower case z] is an analogous
description of the unprepared [for a SHTF event] person who will wander the land looking for food and
supplies to sustain them. These zombies will seek out the prepared (or Prepper) and attempt to take by any
means necessary, including the killing of those Prepared to achieve their end, survival at any cost. The
zombies most feared by Preppers should be considered a more dangerous adversary (to Preppers) than the
Zombie of folklore due their ability to work together for their common goal and the fact that they can react
with normal speed and muscular control unless severely undernourished.
While the Zombie of folklore can only be killed or destroyed by the destruction of the Zombie brain by
gunshot, crushing or impact damage or penetrating injury to the skull inflicting mortal damage to the
Zombie’s brain, the zombie of real concern to Preppers can be killed or mortally wounded in any of the
normal manners. Extreme care must be exercised when approaching an obviously wounded zombie. The
wounded zombie may play possum, possible exaggerating their wounds and pretend to no longer be
dangerous to the Prepper. This is when a Prepper must be on heightened vigilance and treat a wounded
zombie with all due caution as he would give a Zombie of folklore.
