Wouldn’t home be a great place to stay?
In this edition of “Ask Bast”, Rainbow Dash asks:
“Wouldn’t home be a great place to stay? You know the terrain, and (hopefully) have food and water. Not to mention, you would have most, if not all, of the things you would need to put into a survival kit already handy. You would have plenty of knives and sharp objects, first aid kits, clothes, food, water, batteries, plus any guns you may have. So, would hone be a good location to stay if a zombie out break occurred?”
You make a very good point and asked a very good question. I do agree that home is a good place to stay — to a certain point — at least in my opinion. But it’s hard to say exactly how long until you access the situation you’re in. It will be different for every home.
But first, you’re right — your home is a great place to provide adequate shelter. In fact, you are discouraged to flee your home in the first few hours of a zombie attack because most of the population will try to escape. There will be chaos and roads will be packed with panicked people. Prepare yourself, stay put, and stay alert.
That is why it is VERY important to have a survival kit ready. Where else would you keep it? Everything you need is at home! But you’ll eventually need to stock up, so you can only stay as long as your supplies will let you.
I would try to stay home as long as I can, but you should remember to access your situation. If mass amounts of zombies begin to figure out where you are, you may not be able to hold them out as much as you can.
If you can, I suggest staying where it is safest until you need to make an escape. Your ultimate goal is to reach a military complex or an island.
