Has anybody else ever noticed how prepared the younger generations are for the zombie apocalypse?
It's border-line frightening at times. Just the other day I found out that a friend of mine keeps a BOB (Bug-Out Bag) under his bed, which at first impressed me. I keep one as well, in the event of a natural disaster, or such occurance that requires me to leave my house fast. Mine contains some of the basic essentials: food, water (it's a CamelBak-series bag), a red-light readable map (I was trained in the Army that red-lensed lights are harder to see at a distance), some chem-lights, a flashlight with multiple lens types, compass, some other land-nav stuff, gauze, tape, band-aids, a small bottle of bleach, multi-tool, knife, gloves, ear-plugs, and even a handgun and some spare ammo (just in case). It sounds like a lot, but there actually isn't much in mine. It is only the bare-essentials that I need in order to survive in an emergency. Practical and purposeful.
I asked if I could look in his, out of sheer curiousity, and he smiled as he told me he had everything he needed in there.
So what did I see?
I opened up one of the smaller pouches, and the first thing that I laid eyes on -- was The Zombie Survival Guide. Beneath that? World War Z. Two handguns, ammunition for both, three different knives, a little bit of water, some food, his own ear-plugs, an IPod and ear-phones, no sort of map, nothing for navigation, and not much to really ensure any sort of long-term survival. His reasoning? Because it only needed to last him long enoguh to make it to a safe-house that he could shack up. Seeing the book, I had a good idea as to what he was talking about, but some part of me that hates myself felt driven to ask him what he was talking about. He wanted to be prepared against "zombies and -- stuff". He hadn't even prepared this thing for any real-life and plausible survival situations. So anybody who has actually read TZSG would know that it's not even a good kit for the situation he was preparing for!
Yet . . . it has inspired me.
For some reason, I now wish to make a story about zombies.
Anybody interested in helping me with it, or who want to be sort of beta-readers for me, feel free to tell me! I plan to get started on it immediatelly.
