what will you do when i TV or whatever you hear this: Civil defense officials  have told newsmen that murder victims show evidence of having been partially devoured by their murderers. Consistent reports from witnesses to the effect that people who acted as if they were in a kind of trance were killing and eating their victims prompted authorities to examine the bodies of some of the victims. Medical authorities in Cumberland have concluded that in all cases, the killers are eating the flesh of the people they kill. And so this incredible story becomes more ghastly with each report. It's difficult to imagine such a thing actually happening, but these are the reports we have been receiving and passing on to you, reports which have been verified as completely as is possible in this confused situation.

In all seriousness it depends on WHEN I hear it.

I will assume I am at home watching TV and it is during the week (these things NEVER happen on a weekend).

Immediately I call to work and say I was in a bad accident and need to take some time off (just in case it is a false alarm I want to ability to come back to my job)  I will say I am not sure how long I will be out, but I will call back next week with more details.

I go rent a HUGE van/RV and stop by Costco.  I fill that bad boy up with as much food/water I can.  I go to the gun store and buy up as many weapons as I can along with as much ammo as they let me take out of the place and load that all up.

I call friends/family and tell them what I plan on doing based on the news reports I have been hearing and I ask them if they want to come along.

I take a few hours to REALLY think about where I want to go and I go there.  Be it a mountaing retreat or some underground facility or in the area of some underground facility.

I (along with whoever came with me) will rough it for a few days until I hear something that REALLY makes me believe it was a false alarm.

If not a false alarm then we hunker down and start fortifying our position as best we can.  I am talking building HUGE concrete walls reinforced with rebar, tunnels, the whole shebang.

I still think I am sitting pretty good where I am at. So I would just buy as much extra supplies as I could afford and board up the place. I would call friends and family and encourage them to come here with as much supplies as they could carry.

Four words: GEE TEE EFF OH!

No matter where I am, it's load up the car and GTFO.  Take the shit I have and take it to my parents (much better hiding place than this) and listen to the news.

Take inventory of my supplies, buy non perishable food and water and necessary. I'd then go to the fire station and listen to the state wide emergency ops channel, the state police tac frequencies, local P.D. channels,  etc. listen to how well, or how bad things are going. check to see if we're getting any special medical reports from the CDC. I would also monitor the EMS radio channels to check the status of area emergency rooms, and see if hospitals are being overrun. Once I get a grasp of the situation, and if it sounds like its gonna be a shit show, I'll "aquire" comms equipment, and possibly some haz-mat equipment from the f.d. Then I'll bug out.

Install Air-raid sirens on all of my ex-girlfriends houses (which works out great cause they are all bunched together on the opposite side of town) Then go rescue the quiet librarian that lives on the next floor up in my complex.

I'm gonna take a walk, pick up a few necessities like tvs and dvd players from stores along the way...  Maybe some munchies.  Since, you know... When barging in on someone else's escape plan, you should always bring a gift.  (In other words, I'm gonna loot my way to Alex's doorstep.)

Thanks Alex.

Lay low!!! Quietly clear out the wal-mart. Listen to the poilce scanner. Buy gas, LP gas.
Upon comfirmed visual sighting board the house up WITH A SCREWGUN, not a damm hammer. Remove the front and rear stairs.
Calmly arm the entire family, BR vests on,safety's off. If I don't know ya and you start banging on my front door, you get the "this is my boomstick" speech.

This is the same drill we use for hurricanes as well, but no Unicorn.

Oh yeah, RELEASE THE ARMORED UNICORN!!!!

hmm, if i actually heard that on the news, well first i would wait for my erection to subside. then i would start catalogueing which of the apartments in my complex have people out of town so i can scavenge supplies. oh and in between the subsiding and catalogiung i would run to store and max out credit card.

If the world has not yet decended into chaos,  I suppose maxing out credit cards at Army-Navy store, REI, and Walmart would still be in my plan, but I suspect most people would not go to work.

Therefore, my family has a plan to get out of town right away, since cities are death traps, so we are all headed for Missouri farm country.  There are one thousand acres of land to live on, hunt and farm. Trespassers will be shot.  This is a survival situation, so there are no exceptions...

Listen to some Pink Floyd, drink whiskey, and blow my brains out.
         NAAAAHH, just kidding. I'm not gonna be a coward. My friends and I have devised a plan in which the second the news of the zombie outbreak is released, we all go to our one friend's house (the one with a lot of guns), fortify that position in the basement/garage for a bit while armoring up any large-capacity vehicles we can find, then head out West, reach the Pacific Coast, hopefully find a boat somewhere, and sail off in search of a remote island that is free of zombies. There we will survive for a while and wait for the zombies to eat every living thing on the mainland and eventually die out, at which point we will return and repopulate the earth. It'll probably take a long time and span a generation or two, but if all goes well we will be the subject of the next Bible

Long have I pondered what I will do when the dead rise.  My current plan is to take all of the supplies that I have been gathering(MRE's, bottled water, first aid kits, etc.) and load them into my truck along with as much 5.56, 9mm, and 12ga ammo I can convince the 3 gun stores within a few miles of my place to sell me.  Then I max out the old credit cards on a dozen or so gas cans and fill them up.  And lots of cigarettes, cuz honestly who cares about cancer at this point?  With all that stuff loaded up I plan to, discreetly as possible, make my way from south Georgia to south Texas to meet up with the rest of my zombie squad(hopefully they, and I, survive long enough for me to get there).  Taking the lesser used county roads and US highways instead of interstates to avoid the inevitable pileups.  If and when I get to the Texas coast, we take the brand new 62 foot yacht my friend's family owns, along with their 60 or so firearms, deep sea fishin poles, and head out to sea.  The destination being one of the many offshore oil rigs located in the Gulf...just not one owned by BP b/c those things are shoddy.  Either occupy or take over the hopefully deserted oil rig and try to wait it out.  Probably have to use the boat to make "raids" on shore for various supplies.

As another poster put it, it depends when I hear it. If I'm at work I will either die or have to redefine going ape-$&^%. I work at a hospital. Get home/out of the city ASAP.
If I'm not at work or I somehow made it home load up the truck and get ready to run. Load up the dry goods, canned goods and gas cans and see who else I know who is ready to run. I live far to close to a major city. Multivitamins, matches, and tools all would be good. Load up the camping gear primarily. Water would be the problem to solve on the run if this happened now. Not a big problem in this state but something to keep in mind.
Head north. Play the weather and terrain against the enemy. Run for the frost line. If Zac doesn't freeze turn south and start a Plan B. Maye they will rot in the desert sun? We laughed our asses off with the remake of Dawn of the Dead. If you are in a Wisconsin mall wait for winter if possible and get a baseball bat. F'ing clobbering time!
Snowshoes and snowmobiles would be about it. That and the baseball bat. Save the rifles/handguns for Plan B or if cornered. There are a lot of cabins in the lakes around Ely that are specifically wood heated. Nobody rents them past September. Better yet, not many people around in general. Make the rounds and find a cabin. Add insulation with any options available. 30 below zero should stop any threat. Repeat per year as possible and needed. Find a book on canning fruit and vegetables. Get to work.
Follow the edge of winter and reclaim a farm when the dust settles and start a real life. Eat and live well. Declare myself Warlord of Minnesota when I get a chance provided I don't freeze to death first.

Well, in this situation, i already know im pretty much boned. Im broke, dont own and guns or big weapons other than a few bats, and i really dont know to many people who are ready to run.

That being said, im not helpless. Id have to get my hands on as many credit cards as i can (i can expect anywhere from 2-5 depending on how much time i have) gather up the few people i could take with me, gather the supplies we can, load up their guns and head for the rockies. Im hopeing i can meet up with a few MSS ppl eventualy, but if not we'll be alright. My only real problem is figuring out how to move the slower and/or more useless people that would be hard to leave behind. (Sick mom, friend's sis and grandma, ect.) I know my mountains, and there are quite a few places i know we could escape to. We'll probably take 2 or 3 campers with us for the initial hold out, then ditch them if we have to.

There is one lake in particualr, it would be a hell of a workout getting there with the supplies, but once we got there no zed could get near us. We'd have to build up some shelters, but it wouldnt be too hard. After that, all we'd have to worry about would be where to raid for supplies and shooting tresspassers.

I'd try to get to my mom and dad. I don't have big dreams I would be a survivor, I have bad lungs due to a chronic lung disease so I couldn't run from sprinters and I couldn't out last shamblers. I'd want to be with my mom and dad when the end eventually came. I know my dad would have the mercy to kill the two of us, then take his own life.

I don't think I'd have the strength to do it on my own.

Well its just honest. I know my limitations, not everyone could be a post apocalyptic hero. I mean, you hear everyone say, 'Well if my mom turned I could put her down in an instant,' it wouldn't be easy for me. I could really feel what Shaun was going through in Shaun of the Dead when his mother turned. I'd do it, it'd have to be done, but I can't in all honesty say I wouldn't be shooting through tears.
