Zombies and Pets

Scenario 1: The zombie outbreak occurs, they are swarming but you have your safe house and can make it there. But you are going by foot and your pets (not sure what everyone has) could slow you down enough to let the zombies follow you to your safe house... or worse put you in immediate danger. Do you take them with you or not? Scenario 2: Zombies are at the door and breaking in looking for anything to eat, do you value your life more than your pets? Do you let them have at your pets so you can have time to escape? :spider:

Bridges

I was driving the other day and looked at the flooding we had from all the rain. Creeks and rivers were flooded and some were close to going over the bridge. In a PAW we all know that roads won't last long and I doubt that bridges make it too long either. What kind of preperation is everyone doing or planning for bridges being out and/or flooded?

ZPAW economy

What do you think the economic system would be like post zed? Would paper money have any value at all?

Cool Gear Ideas

I want to start with a cool idea I saw in a bushcraft magazine years ago, called the "Alpha Tent". An idea brought to us by this guy- http://www.alpharubicon.com/prepinfo/ponchotent.htm It's basically just a set of poles, fiberglass or aluminum, that you rig into your poncho to make a very quick, low profile shelter. You start with a pair of poles from a worn out or damaged dome tent, trim the sections untill you reach an over all length of 111". If the stem at the ends of the poles are too small to stay in the grommets of your poncho, you can build them up easily, this is where I differ some from the original idea. Get four red wire nuts(the ones with the wings work best) and drill a hole in the top of the wire nut just a hair smaller than the stem, drift out the metal threaded portion on the inside of the wire nut, and slide it on the end of the pole. Put the poles in each corner and move the crossing point to the center of your poncho in the hood opening, then lash the cross together. Image Image Image Two people can snap in another poncho as a floor, or snap two alpha tents together for a pretty solid shelter that gives way more room than the traditional poncho pup tent. You can also rig one up like a regular lean too with much more room and better weather coverage. Image I figure someone might get some use out of this, since we all carry a poncho anyway(or should) and it's just too good to keep to myself.

The 22LR

The infamous 22 round. Some love it, some hate it. Whatever it may be, in my opinion they are a nice little round to have. With practice, basic rifle training and more practice, this can be a life saver, literally. Its perfect for small game hunting. They are also perfect for hours of enjoyment for a very low cost, compared to other calibers out there. So, in a ZPAW situation, would YOU want to have one of these stashed away? Doesnt need to be your main weapon or even a back up. If so, how much ammo would you want to stash with it? Or if not, why not? What kind of 22LR would you choose (semi, bolt, lever, pump or single shot)? Feel free to post experiences (good or bad), pictures, any training you've done or just to show your love for the little caliber. All I ask is that there are no direct insults to one another for having an opinion. Let the fun begin! :wave:
