On The Road Again...Goin' Places That I've Never Been...



Hello Again My Zombie Hungry Populous,

     So it's time to discuss part 2 of my venture into traveling versus hunkering down.  First we talked about the urban jungle, so naturally we will progress to a suburban nightmare.  Lets refresh our memories.  We are dealing with the rapid onset of a virus that re-animates dead flesh and spreads via fluid transfer.  The infected individuals seek out warm flesh to feed on and have no cognitive abilities.

Now that we jogged the memories, lets talk about suburbia.

     Suburbia-  I honestly believe that the setup of your suburb will determine if you should stay or if you should go.  In order to determine which action to take, there are some variables you need to measure.

A. Size of the suburb.  How large is the town, not only in square milage, but in population.  The denser the population, the faster the virus will spread, and the more potential infected you will have to contend with.  There is also a bit of a ratio you should consider when asking how big the suburb is.  The size of the population in relation to the square milage of the town.  In other words, how many people per square mile/acre/hectare/any other form of measurement you want to examine.
B. The proximity of your suburb to other suburbs and cities.  Here is probably your most important question.  If you are 100 miles away from a large city, your decision will be much different than if you are 20 miles away.  And of course, the same question about size of the city must be taken into consideration as well.
C. What resources are in and around your suburb.  Here is something that will come in handy when considering staying.  Given that hunkering down implies that you'll be in for the long haul, and no matter how well stocked your pantry/basement/bomb shelter may be, you will eventually need something you don't have.  Therefore, mapping out where hospitals, grocery stores, gun shops, pharmacies, etc. would be vital to staying put for any significant period of time.

So based on a very complex number of variables, you can make a purely educated decision about whether or whether or not to hit the road or stay where you are.

Stay tuned, as part 3 will talk about rural life... And part 4 and 5 will take a look at what you should stock up on/take on the road with you.  Thats right... I'm stretching this to at least 5 parts (like how I left an opening for even more parts to be added on this.)

Till next time...
