If without warning, zombies were to appear outside your home, clawing at your walls, would you know what to do? Would you have supplies on hand, ready to be grabbed in a moment’s notice? Probably not. For this reason, I put together a zombie survival kit.
As my kit was a gift for a brother, I focused on the tools and working equipment that would be needed for this survival kit. However, for yours you can rely more on first aid, food, or whatever you want. In this post, I’ll show you some of the things I used and what you can do.
First off, I bought a large toolbox at Harbor Freight. Inside, I put rope, a flashlight, duct tape, an ax, strike anywhere matches, fire starter, freeze dried food, and a few other tools. These were all things I thought would be good for the gift as my brother is an aspiring handy man and backpacker. But if you were making a zombie survival guide to actually use, you would probably want quite a few more items than that. Here are some more ideas of things you can put in your kit:
-First aide kit
-leather work gloves
-72 hours worth of food
My favorite item I placed in my brother’s kit was a short guide I had written, titled “How to Effectively Survive and Thrive During the Zombie Apocalypse”. It was something I had been writing for a long time. I filled it with obnoxious humor as well as some survival insights. You can have a lot of fun if you write your own. If you want to buy a guide, there’s a really cool book called “the Zombie Survival Guide” by Max Brooks. It’s a great book with real survival tips and surprisingly detailed research. It’s about ten bucks on Amazon and if anyone’s going to survive the Apocalypse, it’s gonna be that author. :)
I finished my survival kit gift by wrapping the tool kit in zombie crossing and caution tape.
So now you know how to make your very own zombie survival kit. It’s a great gift or for storing in your closet just in case…
