We’ve all wondered it: If a zombie attack became a reality, would I be one of the few bad&%$ enough to survive it? You will with this list of zombie-butt kicking, keep-it-together essentials.
A fire-starting kit. Unless you know how to make fire the old-fashioned way, a fire-starting kit will help keep you warm and act as light as you try to avoid zombies in the dead of night.
A crossbow. You don’t have to worry about running out of ammunition and you can carry it on your back and ask everyone to call you Daryl.
Alcohol. Sure, you want to stay alert and have your wits about you. But after a long, hard day or night slaying zombies, we’d say a drink or two is in order. I mean, let’s get real here: in the apocalypse, it’s 5 o’clock all the time.
Water bottle. It’s almost as important as alcohol (almost). No, but seriously. You’ll be trekking cross-country trying to locate other survivors and the last thing you want to go without, other than a weapon, is water.
A Compass. So you know where you’re going even after your victory drink.
Food. Canned goods and other non-perishables are important, but chocolate is better. And in the zombie apocalypse, who cares about dental hygiene anymore, right?
Camo blanket for those cold nights. No doubt you’ll find yourself sleeping in places you never thought you’d rest your weary head. An old barn or church. Under a tree. On a pile of chewed-up bodies. Your blankey will come in handy to either stay warm or to lie on top of a rough pile of sticks and stones.
A first aid kit. It’s unavoidable. Someone is bound to get hurt during a zombie apocalypse. Paper cuts. Scraped knees. Missing limbs. Anything is possible. A basic first-aid kit will at least help you treat minor injuries.
Playing cards. When you’re not kicking zombie butt or running for your life, you’ll need a quiet way to pass the time. If you’re flying solo, solitaire never looked better. If you’re with a group, try a crazy game of poker or Go Fish.
A Backpack. Well, you need something to carry all of these essentials in, right?
