My outbreak takes place in an appartment complex... The first part I wrote in my blog.
It continues in Oh.Shit.Fuck.
... and for the record... I think appartment complexes are okay you if you're familiar with it and aren't against bashing in the skulls of your neighbors. It's also nice if the doors to each appartment are in an inside hallway and the doors to that hallway can be secured... that helps for a semi- controlled environment.
We also live in a apartment building. At the first sign of an outbreak we plan to flee to the north woods. We have supplies already packed in our van. Apartments may appear safe at the start but will quickly turn into a coffin for those that decide to stay in them. To many ppl, not enough escape routes and the food will only hold out for so long.
If the are any rescue attempts they may just decide to burn the place down with those infected inside instead of trying to search for those alive.
ah yes. but beach house stilts are made to withstand hurricanes. and the only reason i mentiones getting rid of the stairs is because i work for the electricic company i have ladders in my house and on my truck. besides that i dont need to go downstairs in an apartment, all i need to go it use a fire Ax and open holes into the surrounding apartments.
well possibly. but the beach houses here in Galveston are not cluttered and filled with people. they're private. Most of them are on 10 acre plots of beach surrounded by a weak fence. We rented one last summer and it had its own generator and water storage unit. To get there you have to drive in the middle of nowhere through sand and beach to get there. So I don't think thousands of zeds will be there right away. like if i went downtown......but you make a valid point and that is something to take into consideration. that's the safest and closest thing to me.
