Zombie Apocalypse: Survival Kit & Crew Blogfest

Today is the day! In honour of The Walking Dead premiere on Sunday, we...

... are celebrating by hosting:

Zombie Apocalypse: Survival Kit & Crew!

(Since this bloghop is all about having fun, if you have kiddos, we can assume they are safely tucked away in a safe haven somewhere while we’re out in the world fighting off zombies so do not worry.)


1 TWD character: Daryl Dixon (crossbow)
1 book character: John Snow; A Song of Ice & Fire/GoT (sword)
1 movie character: Alice; Resident Evil (massive firearms)
1 TV character (other than TWD): Ragnar Lothbrok; Vikings (sword/axe)
1 loved one: Justin; my husband (firearms)
1 friend: Jackie; soultwin, cousin (spiked baseball bat – cause she’s badass enough to pull it off)
1 freebie: 10k from Z Nation (sniper/slingshot)


1 comfort item: Picture of kids/family; to keep me going
1 weapon: Pickaxe; my other crew members have plenty of the other stuff
1 luxury item: My glasses
1 food item: Beef Jerky
1 medicine/first aid item: Inhaler
1 hygiene item: Deodorant
1 freebie: LifeStraw; water purifying straw

Outpost: My parents house. they have a stockpile of weapons and on a small lake. Also close to a distribution center. That is the meeting spot decided in our family. (Yes, we have a plan!)
Outbreak: Methuselah Virus(copyright)
Cause of the apocalypse: Scientists created a parasitic host to slow down the aging process when it went horribly wrong, creating mindless humanoids with only one thing on their minds – warm-blooded creatures. The virus spreads when host bites another victim, allowing parasite to inject eggs into the blood stream. Depending on the health of the new host, the eggs can take up to a couple of days to hatch and attack hosts system, slowly turning them.
Cure: N/A – temporary cures; destroy the heart and/or brain
1 item you NEED to find:  Pharmaceuticals/Pharmacy; yanno, for illnesses & an inhaler
1 item you WANT to find: Chocolate factory; What? Chocolate lasts forever, provides energy, and I LOVE it!
Method of travel: Sturdy vehicles and a surplus of gas/diesel from the air force base. If it’s been tapped out then we are screwed and on foot we will go until we can find vehicles to siphon.

  1. A spiked baseball bat... love it! Thanks for giving me a weapon!
    Love your idea of the outbreak cause... very clever!

  2. Seeing Jackie in a new light with that spiked baseball bat :) And again, great outbreak cause. Very plausible :)

  3. I think it's pretty amazing/smart/terrifying that your family has a ore-set rendezvous point in the event of a zombie apocalypse. ;) And dang, deodorant! I totally didn't think of that!

  4. It's good that your family has a plan in place. It's good to be prepared! Love the cause of your outbreak too! Very awesome.

  5. You picked a great team and happy to meet another Z Nation fan.

  6. Hey beef jerkey is a win win! I always imagined how sucky it would be to lose your glasses during an apocalypse. Like wtf do you do? Especially those who have very bad eyesight. I guess they'd become zombies soon enough lol!

  7. Yay! You have plans in place so no worries!

  8. Ohh, you are prepared.

    Funny thing. I just got to the library and they have a couple bookshelves up front to feature different things. Themes.

    Today's (well it usually stays up for more than a day, I think) has a sign that says, Would you survive the zombie apocalypse? All the books are non-fiction survival book types. Made me chuckle.

  9. Its great that you and your family are prepared.

  10. Interesting - you chose the LifeStraw and I chose the LifeSaver water bottle....looks like we're thinking along the same lines. I didn't put my glasses on the list, though - I figured they were a given since they're always on me anyways....darn glasses.


I heart me some good comments... and pumpkin spice latte's too!
