Lets play a game.
We all go onto http://innawoods.net/ and show our zombie survival gear!

I'll start!

I'd be at around 235 LB with all of this gear on me, but i wouldn't move too much. I would want to be hidden. Notice no thermal, because zombies are dead. Not alive. I went for the stealth set up, and the set up where i could just keep to my self. I switched out matches for a zippo because of possible rain. My armor is also to protect from me being seen. Why would you walk around in full riot gear in a zombie invasion? You have to take in the face there are other people, some trying to kill you.

Alright, I'll bite. I chose for a very reasonable loadout for where I live (In my opinion). Being in Arizona, in a very urban, built-up place, with lots of heat, I decided against having anything that would be too concealing as the heat would kill you more surely than the Zombies could in this weather.

As for headgear, I went for a big hat and a keffia, again for heat reasons. I wear prescription glasses because I can't make out letters over 20 feet away, but otherwise won't need any special gear.

I have only around 50 pounds of gear on me, and all of it is geared for hiding out in the city. I have a Shotgun mainly for warding off potential rival humans, and a pistol and silencer for when I want to take out a few zombies. For food I would primarily scavenge around the city, and otherwise carry with me dried or canned foods, and plenty of water.

I also have cigarettes as a kind of currency thing- I don't smoke but I am pretty sure I could use these for trade. My Smartphone, MP3, book, and the cards are all to stave off me doing something stupid because of boredom.

I have a wirecutter, multi-tool, and first aid kit to both hotwire vehicles, cut chainlink fences, and patch myself up.

My plan would be to go and hide out during the day somewhere nice and cool, perhaps a library (In my town the libraries are usually a stone's throw from a supermarket), and sleep. During the night, when the temperature is better I would actually explore more of the city and do any real work on fortifying the library I choose as my home. I would get up on tall buildings and use the binoculars to try and spot signs of other people so check out, and mark them on my map (An actual paper one, as I wouldn't trust tech to last too long)

Out here near the Hoover Dam, the hydroelectric plant built-in to that dam would keep supplying places with power for a while, so finding a generator wouldn't be top priority, which is nice.

I'm just not sure if staying in-city or leaving to live in the wilderness somewhere would be better.

Little late to the party.

Hey guys, greetings from Germany. I´ve fairly little experience in this, so I´´ll try to explain my choices.

Lots of durable foods. Water shouldn´t be a problem.

Short weapon is 9mm, because I expect this type of ammo to be more often available than more exotic types.

I guess 21 kilos is guite a load to wear... so no armor of course which might slow you down.

Night vision sounds kind of futuristic, but with electricity down and dark nights, this might come in handy.

Rifle is supposed to be sturdy, well stocked in terms of ammo.

Besides that: camouflage! All clothing is supposed to be difficult to spot in local fauna.

Last, but definitely not least: a good knife, weapon cleaning kit, flashlight and binoculars.

Since I´m living at the Dutch border, I´d try to get my hands on a canal boat as a base.

Thanks for showing me the app!

UK (Wales) reporting in. First time postan:

First thing I'd do is raid the local shooting school for a shotgun (the choke is a very long shot but would be very handy imo). Along with that I'd try and obtain the riot armour from a local police force. I could barter for it if needed.

I chose two types of ammo because I have a feeling slug rounds will be easier to obtain from the shooting school and also be useful in looting locked buildings.

Most of the survival/hygene gear I already own, getting hold of the iodine from a school and the med bag from the local Boots. Map would change depending on where I headed (whether alone or in a group.)

The boiler suit is just a place-holder - on the one hand it would be practical and easy enough to take care of, but really I'd probably just have a cozy jumper and some worn in jeans. The storm cloak, hat, boots and kefyeh would come from a milsurp store in the neighbouring city. The facemask and goggles I own, they're really for dealing with hordes to protect from blood spray etc.

Honestly the only problem is a watch. I'd be using my phone for as long as there were car batteries or any sort of other power around, but after that I'd find a decent one on a zombie or a corpse, since fuck going into the city center to a shop.

Un-shown here is a fucktonne of batteries and a multimeter. The meter would help with various things such as testing buildings for power, setting electric traps and sorting out the whole car battery for power thing. You can use a pencil as a resistor to make it into a near standard current (will find tutorial if anyone wants it.)
