Tales of the Walking Dead season 1

If you want to be ready for the walking dead, you need to be able to survive alone.

I have, over the last couple of weeks, paid particular attention to the value of being in a group in a zombie apocalypse; this is largely because I genuinely believe it will make the apocalypse easier. Make no mistake, however, as much as I value being in a group in the apocalypse, I fully believe that if you truly want to survive, you need to be ready, willing, and able to survive alone.

“Why” you might be thinking? Simple: Because there is always the chance that you’ll have to.

Realistically, we can’t predict what will happen to us in a zombie apocalypse, and because of that, we need to take into consideration all the reasonable possibilities, and, quite frankly, losing everyone should be at the top of that list.

When I wrote The Rules: A Guide To Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse, I wrote it with the expectation that you would, if only temporarily, be surviving the apocalypse by yourself. It’s because of this that I included rules about learning to use firearms, developing your body for strength and endurance, and learning as much about auto repair, hunting, fishing, farming, and the general layout of your surroundings as possible, because I expected that, if you were alone, you’d need to be as self-reliant as you possibly could be. If you know how to fix your own car, provide your own food, and navigate your own way around, even if you’re alone, you will be able to survive or, at least, have a far better chance than if you didn’t know all of those things.

My advice is, even if you have a group of people that you plan on surviving the apocalypse with, to read up or watch as many how-to videos on everything you think will be useful to survive the apocalypse as you can, and probably practice these skills as much as possible (So long as they’re not illegal, of course), so that, no matter what, you can know that, if you’re alone in the apocalypse, you can still survive.

You are ultimately responsible for your own life, so be as ready to protect and maintain it as you possibly can be.

And that’s our Walking Dead Survival Rule Of The Week! No matter what, in a zombie apocalypse, the issue is always about people. Whether that’s too many people, not enough people, having no people, losing people, fighting with people, whatever, it’s always about people and how you deal with the issues that come with them. If you want to learn how to deal with those issues in a zombie outbreak, why not pick up my book, The Rules: A Guide To Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse!
