Gear for The Lone Survivor
I wouldn’t be breathing if I didn’t have rules: vigilance; good judgment; meticulous preparation.
Surviving the zombie apocalypse requires you to travel quickly and quietly, and that means packing light. You have to pick your tools wisely and keep them within reach at all times.
I don't go anywhere without my Gerber® Gator Machete Junior—my trusty sidekick in the constant war for survival. It is NOT A TOY. Compact but lethal, its 10.75" high-carbon steel blade is equally suited for slashing through underbrush, debris-filled alleys, or hordes of the undead. If you have to pick one close-combat weapon, this is it.
Subways. Abandoned malls. Convenience stores. You learn real fast which places to avoid and which are worth picking through. Either way, you never go looking for supplies without a reliable flashlight, and you never travel without a small first aid kit and a roll of duct tape for fast field repairs for yourself and your gear.
Know thyself and know thy enemy. That's what Sun Tzu said, and if it worked for a legendary warrior like him, it'll work for me. Sometimes, I like to find a safe spot and keep my wits sharp by thumbing through Max Brooks’ definitive Zombie Survival Guide. The man was enlightened, may he walk in peace.
It’s obvious but I’ll say it anyway: you can never carry enough Spam.
A can of Spam will be substituted until a solution to this crisis is reached.
