I think It would be hard for me to choose.
Normally in my Z.A (Zombie Apocalypse) rp group I grab food and medicine...however I also always have a lighter, cellphone and pocket knife on my person so I am ok in the protection and communication department as well I have my trusty hunting dog. (cocker springer spaniel.) and my other guy friend always has a baseball bat and one of them has a father whom owns a gun shop. which is just adjacent to his house. I think the first thing I would grab would be the car keys....I would definitely be taking the car outta there!

Odds are, if there were a zombie apocalypse, I'd be dead before I could really do anything, or I would flee without grabbing anything (which would kill me anyways). What, with the hordes of decaying, man-eating monsters on the loose that used to be my family and friends. I'd either be unable to defend myself or I'd decide that a world like that wasn't worth living in and give up.

If I did manage to get something and get out, though, it would most likely be a good dog. Not my own dog, mind you (he's a lazy bum), but a big, strong trained dog. Dogs are able to take care of themselves if they need to, so you won't have to worry 'bout bringing a ton of kibble, they could fight off zombies should the need arise, help you hunt once you run out of food, be able to sense zombies and/or other survivors, and carry supplies. Not to mention they'd be a good companion and keep me sane while I tried to survive from day to day. Not only that, but if I were to get my hands on a male and a female and keep them alive long enough, then I could raise a whole pack of dogs to help me.

Realistically speaking, though, I don't know where to find a dog like that. Since that case, my second choice would be the backpack full of supplies. I wouldn't be able to take as much as I could if I had a dog to carry some, but I could still carry a reasonable amount of stuff. I'd pack band-aids, non-prescription medicine, nonperishable food, flint, the usual stuff. It could sustain me until I (hopefully) find a colony, and if I was desperate enough I could probably use a can as a weapon.

Once again realistically speaking, if I knew my folks were a lost cause and I new the zombies were coming while they were still very far away, the first thing I'd do is probably go find every dune buggy and pickup truck at my place that's usable (there's a lot of pickups and buggies where I live) and use the wood and metal from my grandpa's workshop just up the driveway to fortify them against the zombies. Then, I would take anything in my house that could be of use to me and stockpile it in said vehicles. I'd empty my dad's gun safe, clean out the pantry, blanckets and such to keep warm, you name it. Heck, I'll even take that old dog of mine along. I'd probably bring some sentimental stuff too, such as my Bible, family photos, and that stuffed croc I've had since the day I was born. From there I'd take the biggest buggy (I don't trust myself to drive a truck) and drive to the closest city 'bout half an hour away. From there I'd work on emptying out every grocery store, pawn shop, convenience store, and auto-shop, as well as Lowes, all the while looking for survivors. Once I'd found enough people (preferably 2-3 per vehicle) I'd set out with everyone else for a safer place. I might turn out like the Riffs from Rebuild, wandering around killing zombies.

Ultimatley, though, that's only what I THINK I would do. In my opinion, you have absolutely no idea what you'd do if that happened unless you'd experienced a similar situation.

Have you heard of the Anti-Zombie fortress? ∞ LINK ∞ I'm going to buy a ticket to there before the apocalypse or maybe just go there with a weapon during the apocalypse and hole up in there.

You would have to find **some** way to go out and scavenge every now and then. There's no definite way that your food would last forever.

How about I buy the place, order them to make a garden there, and then I can have infinite food. That way I can survive the zombie apocalypse.

Well it's better than the first zombie fortress, I mean every dead zombie is going to make a ramp upwards and into the base.

I think that honestly, in such a situation, primal instinct to survive would drive my thoughts; I think most people, out of sheer terror or determination would dive for the nearest weapon - which is certainly true in my case due to fear - I am not a violent person and don't believe that a weapon of sorts would prove effective in such a situation anyway, particularly in my hands, but all the same, I am primarily a creature of instinct and logical or rational thought would be replaced by an intrinsic need to protect myself.

If, say, the zombie apocalypse was a fair way from reaching my town, so that I had time to stop and make a logical choice, then I would likely either go for a barricade or medicine, after all, I couldn't run or travel forever and medicine could prevent any sort of contamination whilst a barricade really speaks for itself.

I highly dislike arguing about religion because everyone tends to become rather impassioned by such talks and as the very nature of religion decrees that it is built upon unrelenting faith; indeed, arguments are often cyclic and usually very little transpires. However, I think that if God had permitted a zombie infection upon the land, then he obviously has no qualms with letting people become infected and if I was a strong believer in Christianity, I wouldn't need to hold a Bible because the faith isn't something which requires any sort of religious conduit.

I think a radio is a nice but impractical choice; if I have a radio and can hear survivors but have absolutely no means of reaching them, it's futile. And a dog is a double-edged sword.

Perhaps I should have elaborated more on the radio. When I made the option radio, I was referring to a **two way** radio, in which there was a microphone or some sort of device that allowed you to not only hear, but also communicate with the other survivors.

Since in most zombie apocalypses the zombies are quite pathetic, I most likely wouldn't do anything. I would just sit back, relax and possibly leave the city if necessary. My first possible choice would be some rock climbing equipment. Zombies are very bad at climbing, hearing, seeing, thinking, moving ,etc. (according to "Shaun of the Dead" and "Danger 50,000 Volts", so going up into a fairly steep mountain would save my life (just as long as there's a reliable food source...).

My second choice of an item to grab is a bike. It allows you to go at least 15x faster than a zombie, and so I'd head north past Canada to reach the Arctic Circle (grabbing supplies along the way) because zombies also can't stand the cold.

Finally the type of zombies the world is facing really should determine what you do. If you're dealing with the dreaded "I am Legend" zombies, there is no point in trying unless you have military/survival training. The only thing you should try is to again get as far north as possible.

This would be what I would do because I'm always prepared (this is only if I'm the only family member left). I would grab my huge hiking backpack. It is already filled with heat packs, a survival kit, first aid kit, 15" bowie knife, hatchet, sleeping bag, canteen, along with a few ponchos, a tent and of course: duct tape. I would shove any non-prescription medicine I could find into my backpack plus canned foods and maybe some packaged fruits and vegetables. Finally I'd grab my 12 gauge hunting shotgun and all of the ammo. I would first go for my mom's car because it has a sizable amount of room and it has a long enough hood that it could ram into zombies with ease and slick enough for them to glide over the body work. I would put my mountain bike into the back in case of automotive failure, a few bins, and some fine literature. I would go to the gas station and fill up the gas tank and some jerrycans, and I would empty the convenience store of anything that is not meat. I would then drive north stopping for gas when needed to until I reached Minnesota's border with Canada (hopefully finding survivors along the way). I would then create a fortress in the wilderness where I could live in general safety from the zombies. I will survive!

These zombies are regular. They sniff the air like savage animals, have keen senses overall (except for feeling) and are capable of running.

Plowing through a massive mob of the [PROFANITY]ers is actualyl a pretty bad idea. If you ram into them, you would plow right through them at maximum speed, but you would lose speed if the bastards aren't spread out. You would continually lose speed, as is the usual outer break effect, as well as the blood and gore reducing your tires' traction. You would eventually grind to a halt, and then the surrounding zombies that weren't hit would break into your windows, and pull you out. They'd rip you apart, and eat you alive.

I wouldn't need anything. I'd probably BE a zombie. One of the COOL zombies though! Like the Tank from Left 4 Dead. None of that lame I'm-walking-like-there's-a-live-grenade-in-my-pants business. Because that would be slightly inconvenient...

A weapon would be by far the most essential thing to take with you. Not because of the zombies. Quite frankly, zombies are rotting corpses. They should be easy to kill or outrun.
The real issue is the other survivors. If you have food and others don't have any, do you really think that they are going to let you go about your way? That's not the humanity I know! Kick and scream to the bitter end, taking everyone with you; that's how humanity works. Of course, they're just as likely to attack you for your weapon as well, but as long as you can fight back...

As for the radio, there is no way of telling if the other survivors are really out to help, or just baiting you into a trap.
