Re: So, How Would YOU Do If Zombies Hit Your Street?
As I say time and time again (probably until people start asking if I wear a turban to work instead of a cowboy hat), I live out in the desert; you'd think there'd be no zombies out here.
of the bastards.
notice that 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is not
an available address to use.EDIT:
I do believe I've found a way to cheat at this.
Okay, so I started from my home address
and headed for North Moss Avenue
, which is almost
at the bleeding edge of town. (Almost
. You'd have to head out to Knox Avenue for that
.) Dodged a few zombies here and there, but once I got out to Moss Ave, I noticed no zombies
. It's like they instinctively know
lives out there. Soon as I got to Moss, I turned South and high-tailed it toward Interstate 20.
My plan: keep going past
the Interstate (when Moss Avenue becomes Meteor Crater Road) and head for the Odessa Meteor Crater
on Google Maps). I knew I was essentially setting myself up at what would surely be Odessa's version of the Alamo, should an actual zombie outbreak ever occur here... but after seeing the lack of zombies along Moss Avenue (only one I saw since leaving 26th Street via the tangled route I took was one
ambling along 3rd Street), confidence in my plan suddenly skyrocketed. I would arrive at the Meteor Crater Museum - which has only one
road in and out (the aforementioned Meteor Crater Road) - and sit there
, waiting for the fiends to come and get me.
Yeah, that was 23 minutes ago
. It took me ten
minutes to get there (after
I got all twisted around at Sitting Bull, eating up about two minutes easy with no zombies in sight), but I'm still there, just waiting. The numbers keep ticking by and I'm still alive
(and feeling cocky enough to look up a song on YouTube while I wait). I've got the overhead map zoomed out as far as I can get it, and there's not an undead soul in sight. The timer now reads 25:18
. I'd say my little "Alamo" spot is rather well-chosen, wouldn't you agree?
So, if a zombie apocalypse does
hit town, I know what I'm
doing: grabbing all the non-perishable food and water I can and heading for the Meteor Crater, then I'm bribing the Park Ranger with food and water if he'll let me stay there. (I'm sure whatever I bring will be more nutritious and life-preserving than whatever candy's left in the snack machine out there. Nobody goes out there, anyway, so I doubt the candy in that thing is still good.) I'll be armed and s/he'll be armed, so I think we'd be okay... until the supplies start running low and we have to draw straws to see who'd take the Park Ranger truck back into town to raid one of the Walmarts...
It has been 30:12
and not a zombie in sight. "This was a triumph... I'm making a note here: 'huge success'..."PROOF!Last Count:73:40 before I finally got bored and refreshed the browser page.
