Make Your Own Zombie Survival Kit

Oh no Zombies are coming! What do you do? Are you prepared? Do you have a Zombie survival kit? No well what are you waiting for get to work!

There are three types of kits
Stashes: A stash is a large collection of hoarded food and supplies usually set up for long term use under siege situations.

Mini Kit: Mini kits hold basic supplies and are designed to fit in small places such as a motor vehicle.

Bug Out Kit: Bug-out kits are portable survival kits also known as "Personal Emergency Relocation Kits"; these are used for quick escape and survival for a few days. Bug-out kits usually also contain tools that aid in gathering resources for more prolonged times after limited supplies run out.

First you need to decide what kind of kit you need. How much food and water you will need, what type of tools, where would you go if things got really bad. This is just like any emergency kit you gotta be prepared! Think of any situation that could happen and consider preparation for the most probable dangers. Every situation is different for everyone and kits can be modified for specific purposes.

Your best bet is to have a smaller kit in your car, and a bigger kit at home so no matter what your ready!

Basic Things you will need
Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
Food at least 3 days worth (non-perishable)
Can opener
A radio (must be battery powered or crank powered)
Flash light
First Aid Kit (band aids, gauze, medical tape, anti-bacterial cream)
A whistle
Dust Mask
Duct Tape
Plastic Sheeting (to block in shelter)
Garbage bags
Baby Wipes
Small tool kit (hammer, wrench, screw driver, some nails and screws)
Maps of the area

Now depending on your situation, and whose in your family you might also want to include
baby items
Pet items
Important documents in a water proof box
Blankets and pillows
Change of clothes (warm and cooler clothes)
Household chlorine bleach and medicine dropper – When diluted nine parts water to one part bleach, bleach can be used as a disinfectant. Or in an emergency, you can use it to treat water by using 16 drops of regular household liquid bleach per gallon of water. Do not use scented, color safe or bleaches with added cleaners.
Matches in a waterproof container
Personal Hygiene items
Mess kits, paper cups, plates and plastic utensils, paper towels
Paper and pencils
Books, games, puzzles or other activities for children

So that's your basic kit info and its good for any emergency situation, but here's the big difference for a Zombie kit you need weapons!! So what kind of weapons?

Types of weapons you could include
Blunt weapons: sticks, bats, hammers, clubs, the back side of a fire extinguisher, ect
Flexible weapons: ropes, chains, cables, hoses, ect
Edged Weapons: knives, swords, axes, sharp broken piece of glass, ect
Complex melee weapons: power drills, weed wacker, the ever popular chainsaw, ect
Combination melee weapons : these are a bit more complex weapons.. For example the kusarigama is a Japanese tool used by farmers has a chain or rope connecting a small sickle or kama to a weighted ring or stone
Throwing Weapons: stones, knives shuriken, anything you can pick up.
Cord Weapons: slingshots, bows and crossbows, hand bow, giant human sling, ect


Remember the most important thing is to keep your family safe, specially children.. zombies love children brains.. they taste like candy!

(please keep in mind while this post is for fun all of the above other than the weapons are great for any emergency situation.)
