While popular programs like The Walking Dead let you believe your biggest obstacles during a zombie apocalypse would be biters and unfriendly survivors, in reality it takes a lot more than that! Zombie apocalypse survivors need a lot of skills to make it through the initial onset, as well as the months and years ahead.
Perhaps the most important skill is water purification. You might think a large cleaver or baseball bat with nails in the end is vital to survival, but in fact you won’t make it through the first few days without clean, safe water. Knowing how to find and purify water would make you such a valuable asset that bigger, stronger folks would gladly protect you for this service.
People who invest in solar panels today will be glad to have that energy source when the infrastructure collapses during the apocalypse. A single solar panel could produce enough energy to sustain necessary electric functions for a family. Imagine how green with zombie fever your neighbors will be when you don’t have to risk going outside for fire wood: solar energy will keep you safely indoors and toasty.
For those survivors who have seen The Gods Must Be Crazy, there is truth in the phrase “waste not, want not!” A single glass bottle could be used as a mallet, a bottle, a grinder, a level, a magnifying glass, and several other things. That’s why survivors who want to live will never throw away anything: there’s a second and third use for everything.
