Thinking about something today...

Where would we all meet up in case of a Walking Dead situation (staying away from the "Z" word for search purposes)?

We've got quite an eclectic bunch here with a wide variety of knowledge, skills and abilities. Plus we drive the best vehicles for that kind of situation (look at the percentage of Jeeps in the Walking Dead show).

I would think that you get all of us together and we would make a formidable force in a survival situation where the world has gone to complete ****.



So? What say you? Where would be a good pre-arranged location that we could gather at? I would much prefer to already have primary, secondary and tertiary routes to get to a "compound" or defensible area to plan the next step from. Also a couple backup locations would be good.


And no, the Saratoga Springs Walmart would NOT be a good idea. Gun stores, Walmart/Target, hospitals, etc would be the first places the sheeple and mindless freaks go when everything goes tits up.

I vote for 3 spots...

Antelope Island in the middle of the Great Salt Lake..

Sanpete County down by Boreal (he'd be nice to have around during this and there is less people..

Moab because there are less people and we can live in paradise and out where a normal person couldn't drive to get away..


thoughts?

Moab or southern Utah. They never found that man who shot the cop. I say there. We could basically have a city and nobody would know.

My ranch in Central Oregon.

Kind of hard to live in a desert.

That reminds me I need more 22LR ammo.

Antelope Island would be a good defensible location.



Providing the walkers can't swim as they did as written in the World War Z book.

moab has more water and animals then you would think. plus your right next to the la sal snow covered mountains you could go anywhere and there is not another large city within hundreds of miles!

I do like the island idea but its up by salt lake.. lots of them up there i'm sure...

I vote uinta mountains plenty of lakes rivers and old spanish gold mines not to mention wild life only problem is its almost impossible to get a vehicle of any kind in there. I would be more concerned about EMP ( electro magnetic pulse ) that would kill any car with a computer that's why I want to build my dooms day rig I'm thinking 76 Cherokee chief or 50' s willy wagon.

Somewhere off the beaten path for sure. Ideally more than 1 tank of fuel from I-15 or I-70, but that puts you REALLY out in the boonies. I'm planning on hunkering down where I'm at. We're right on 89, which means we'll probably have a mass exodus right down main street Lots of people won't want to fight the hordes on 15, so they'll head our way.

I've got my EMP ready rig in place:


Already sitting in its own Faraday cage for added protection Only electronic on board is the glow plug controller card. I've got a spare sitting in a safe place, and if I have to, 2 pieces of wire and a button will bypass it altogether.
