A: The simplest answer is this: Anywhere the Zombies aren’t.
But we imagine you’re in need of a bit more information than “stay away from Zombies”. With drug and alcohol fueled rages getting the spotlight right now, it may seem that Zombies are already among us, and just about everywhere we turn. But that just isn’t the case… yet. So, for the most part, you can sleep soundly at night, as long as your doors are locked.
When and if a real Zombie outbreak occurs it’s probably time for you to think about leaving the nest. You can treat a Zombie outbreak like a major storm coming your way, after-all, that’s really what’s it is. A cloud of bodies, undead or not, are heading your way, and they are going to do their best to get whatever it is they want from you, food, water, flesh. Sometimes it’s best to try to outrun a storm, and sometimes it’s best to board up the windows and stay at home. But If you decide to get out while the getting is good, do it as quickly and quietly as you can.
For those of you living in city/town: It’s going to be a race against time if you decide to leave. You either go right away, or you wait a few weeks, hoping things will settle down enough for you to get out later. Roads and waterways will congest, and most likely be shut down by the government. Bridges will be raised and possibly destroyed. Grocery stores will be stripped of their edibles, emergency supplies, and basic necessities within the first few hours, and everything will be chaos when word gets out that there are Zombies on the loose.
For those of you living in the countryside: You might receive the news of a Zombie outbreak a little later those living in a city, so you might have a bit of catching up to do. Your immediate threat probably wont be a horde of Zombies at your door, but rather a few thousand people heading your way for sanctuary. Hopefully you are already in a situation that allows you to live “off-the-grid” and the shock of a nationwide meltdown wont affect your amenities as much as it will others. You’ll likely have much more freedom of movement than those trapped within cities and towns. You may even be able to come and go as you please, just remember to lock your doors on the way in and out.
Places to avoid
Anywhere that will be or is commonly crowded, and/or used as a refuge should be avoided whenever possible. Yes you will need supplies and a place to stay, but so does everyone else. Try to keep out of other peoples way, and hopefully they will stay out of yours. Listed below are just a few of a long list of places to avoid.
Churches and other places of worship
Governmental buildings and offices. (i.e. Police and fire stations, libraries, schools, judicial courts)
Hospitals and clinics
Event buildings (i.e. Arenas, venues, theaters)
Grocery stores and other supply outlets (such as malls)
Large apartment buildings
So get prepared for one hell of a human tornado, and when you’re on the move, don’t forget your BOB.
