Map of the dead: Zombie survival map
Map of the dead ^

Posted on 04/15/2012 6:34:11 PM PDT by djf

Interesting map if you want to find out your survival chances if SHTP.

I'm in a "safe" zone, but only about 1/2 mile from a wad of zombies!!

Excuse me for saying this, but “wad of zombies” sounds really bad.

Hardly a zombie to be found here in Central VA! Looks like they’re all concentrated in the Hampton Roads area. Funny, I’d have thought they’d be up in leftwing northern VA.

I’m in a safe zone but go 1/2 mile away or so in any direction, I’m in the center ring.

I couldn’t tell a lot about the map; it seemed to be a bit on the vague side and hard to get to download - but, then I am in a remote area with only access to dialup internet service - seriously. It looked like the city to the north of us is a hotbed of zombies, but we’re in the boonie area.

I don’t get it either. I live at the edge of a city with 12k people in KY and this thing shows my whole city as a zombie zone?

Hampton Roads? With all of the military in that area, I would think that the service members would outnumber the zombies.

There are a whole lot of things that would change zombie demographics. A major factor would be whether the zombies would be reanimated cadavers from cemeteries, of victims of the zombie plague disease.

That is, in a large part of the US west of the Mississippi, there are far fewer buried cadavers than in some place like New Orleans.

Whereas, if they were plague zombies, about the only thing that would matter is population density where you live.

Geography and seasons are also very important. Zombies frozen stiff or dehydrated into over-dried brittle beef jerky are going to be a lot less functional than in moderate and somewhat humid circumstances.

Personally, I like the idea of a mountain fortress with the mountain covered in black basalt, that in summer can give off 180F heat easily.

We have a small pond in the back yard, and it’s on the map, although they don’t show the houses. Must be some sort of takeoff from Google Earth.

If zombies are made of dead meat, does that mean they can catch maggots? Would the maggots then also be zombies?

This is a really bad zombie map.

They have a small farming town of about 1200 as a zombie central. That's bull.

Also, there is a large triangular portion just south of Kansas City that would be part of zombie central.

Very poor zombie map.

I was just kidding.

there are, or used to be some nice areas of Newport News especially as you traveled North. I guess it is technically North West.

I had a friend who lived in one of those old mansions high overlooking the James River.

Don’t feel bad. I live near Washington, D.C. “Land of the Living Dead”, i.e. Democrats, liberals, lobbyists, and reds.

Gonna need more ammo and axes.

When we lived in VA, our last address was right on the Chesapeake Bay.

I could watch Pan’s submarine come in and out of the bay as I sat on the deck of the beach house. It was wonderful place to live.

The history in that area is wonderful... lots of things to see.

We don’t miss it, though. It was time to move on.

I’m in Zombielandia here in NOVA, but actually it won’t be that bad, I can punch the gas pedal and make it into Loudoun county in 5 minutes. Plus I have a 870P shotgun, a Colt .45, and a S&W .357.

My Zombie SHTF plan is fight my way to Hillsville, VA. That place is littered with good ole boys.

I get it, population centers are potential concentrations for zombies. However, I think they should reduce the zombie danger around military bases and firearms & outdoors stores. Some of us in these areas will be drastically reducing the zombie count in our area. ;-)

I live in a zombie zone but actually the urban folks don't worry me that much, they are going to be beggars to the remnants of the government. They can lock down an urban area like a prison, curfews, quarantines, rations, etc. In times of riots they tend to loot and burn down their own neighborhoods for the dysfunctional are well... dysfunctional. If an event that turns people into refuges occurs the poor are to be pitied for they can't get out of the way quickly, it is they who will suffer the most as they did in Katrina. May we all keep our humanity as much as possible if some vast tragedy ever befalls the United States. It is inevitable that good people must sometimes defend themselves and their families from others. People do turn very nasty especially when hungry it is a sad fact of life and in an urban area there are more people. It is also true that you can live next to a serious psycho in the remote countryside with no one around to hear your screams.

Zombie notes:


Zombies come in various size groups, with different characteristics:

A zombie wolf: A lone wolf, single zombie. This zombie is easily defeated, as single zombies are usually very timid and frightened by almost anything. Reports came in of a four year old child in Cincinnati beheading a zombie wolf with one swing of a wiffle ball bat.

A zombie trickle: 2-4 zombies. Also defeatible, especially if you have your BRAINZ! Pack by djf. Simply toss about a cup of Brainz! (TM) into a large, open area, turn down the lights, and watch them suckers slither in! Slaughter at will! Of course it makes no sense to put the Brainz! (TM) where the first zombie will find and eat it, so be creative. Toss it on a roof and they will group at the bottom. Lock it in a car trunk and they will all soon be smashing and tearing at the car. Use your imagination!

A wad of zombies: 5-10 zombies. Very dangerous. A small enough group, they usually have a leader. It is to your advantage that zombies are clumsy, so a wad of zombies will rarely sneak up on you. A single person (like me!) usually doesn't have much chance against a wad of zombies unless you can keep them in full frontal-assault mode, in which case you just pick them off at your leisure.
A zombie in front of you is bad news!
A zombie BEHIND you is even worse!

A bank of zombies: 11 or more zombies. This is when things start to get interesting. Once again, sounds may be key, as you could hear them coming from a quarter mile away. It's always possible, of course, that they will be down by 50% by the time they get to you, as the frequent zombie scratching and biting and pulling of anything that moves and they dismember themselves. But DON'T COUNT ON IT!!.
For times like this, it is best to have at least a case of Brainz! (TM) by djf around. But you need to get yourself into a place where you can toss some to them and they destroy each other in the turmoil. A second story window can work, but you need to have backup to make sure none sneak in from behind. Don't be tempted to send in your favorite dog, as a bank of zombies will have no problem, unless it's a very large breed (over 125 lbs or so).

A few more notes:
The nest defense is well known. Zombies HATE FIRE. Of course fire has the problem of making light, so it attracts them, but a dancing flame of any kind will send them off in a delirious rage.
Zombies are dead. They stink. Sometimes you will smell them before you see or hear them.
Zombies, by nature solitary creatures, are attracted by the smell of cooking (especially meats), perfumes, most things that attract people. So no more fou-fou for the ladies. No more showers. The worse you smell, the more you will repel any zombie wolfs around.
Forget about the garlic. Zombies sense of taste/smell is so degraded, garlic has little effect. But their disdain for the smell of Nutmeg has been widely publicized. We have developed our latest product Nutmax! (TM) as a highly enhanced, scientifically proven zombie repellent.
Finally, we all like to relax a little bit, maybe listen to a few tunes. Remember, zombies are extraordinarily fascinated by music, especially rap and hip-hop. It is thought that the low rhythmic beats sound like live human hearts and draw them in from all directions. Tests have shown that listening to Nelly Furtados Promiscuous Girl, even at low volumes, can bring zombies from 3/4 mile away! So listen to music if you like, but stick to Bach!

Here is a useful Zombie map- this plots “social vulnerability”, by county. Plots that county’s liklihood of serious problems if something goes awry, like a Zombie Apocalypse. Or nationwide power/natural gas blackout.

I don’t know about that map. It shows areas near where I live as light colored where I wouldn’t drive into in the daytime without a gun. It shows areas as dark that I think are very safe.
