Please list your general top 10 items you'd want in preparation for "Z Day".

By that, I mean basic items such as:
A firearm, (you can be specific if you want, but you don't have to be), or melee weapon/tool (again, generally, or specifics: machete, tire iron, etc.. or not at all), food stores (this is probably a given unless you intend to hit the road and not dig in), first aid kit, crank/solar powered radio, generator, water treatment tabs, flashlight, solar charger, batteries... basically any "pet" thing you feel is necessary to your survival.

I'm trying to determine what I still need ;-)

What's Tack?

Like the bread they ate in the Civil war?
I like the idea of rope.

I really like the idea of the tank even better though. :-D

Tack is what you put on a horse. Saddle, bridle, blankets, all that sort of thing. Hard-Tack is the nasty biscuit stuff.

4. Horse




I would take a bike instead.

Bike:

Quiet

You don't hasve to feed a bike or groom a bike ( horses require both to survive )

If the bike breaks down, there is no need to put a bullet in it to put it out of its misery!

Bikes can be slow to get started. A person can get pulled from one easily. They can't carry a heavy load and a rider.

You can carry a heavy load, it just really bogs you down. I used to do tours where I'd take everything I lived off of, including my tent and sleep system for a couple weeks.

You can pull a heavy load easily with a moter assist. The trouble is that you lose off-roadability.

Lawns, gardens, and flowerbeds are all food to a horse as long as you make sure they don't eat poisonous stuff. The other thing that horses offer over bicycles is a higher viewpoint. Plus they self balance.

I will say that a bike would be an excellent choice in an urban setting, where a horse would be much louder than a bike.

Domestic horses need more than grass and vegetables to eat. Horse feed is a must, which would a very heavy load.


I am all for using a horse, it is a good idea, but I for one have never rode one and or used a horse to pull a cart. It isn't something you learn to do in a few minutes.

Why the hell would you want a horse when there's plenty of cars and petrol about?
They're too inconvenient.

What do horses eat in the wild? What did horses eat in the American west during the 19 century on cattle drives? It it were that difficult to feed them, horses would never have been viable as transportation or work animals. It would be a good idea to bring some feed with you if you have to stable the horse inside a building for a period of time. Both you and the horse could eat corn and/or oats.

No, but it is something that you can do as a hobby before the ZPAW happens. Like learing to shoot a gun or getting some cardio in.

Gas goes bad after awhile and cars require roads which will surely be jammed solid with those who tried to escape the infection, especially from the large cities.

That's what off roaders are for.
But yeah, the petrol going off thing would be a problem in prolonged zombie situations.

I still don't see keeping a horse as being very practical, it could be hard enough to find enough food and drink for yourself, let alone an animal that size.
