I did Mantracker, so here’s The Walking Dead. First, though, a few disclaimers: this is based on the first two or three episodes of the show, then I stopped watching it. Not that I didn’t want to, but because Dish Network, for reasons known only to their marketing department, dropped AMC from my lineup.
On to the list, in no particular order:
Use the stereotyped racist guy as bait. A few problems solved.
Box vans don’t have seat belts in back–drive slowly. No need to rush.
Car alarms don’t keep going and going and going and going.
Handguns aren’t cannons. Have a clue how to use them.
Rifles do kick a bit.
No need to waste ammunition.
CB radios (handheld especially) are worthless for anything more than a few miles. Become a Ham and have a clue. :-).
Have a knife — it is quite possibly the most useful tool you can possess at any time, anywhere.
In the Zombie Apocalypse, everyone on the team should be armed.
Teams? Travel in them.
Have some useful skills to contribute to the team.
Have a plan.
Have a backup plan.
Don’t take chances if you don’t need to.
Only engage if you have superior numbers.
Drama? Avoid it. There are enough things to worry about without engaging in drama.
Okay, some of those are a bit petty. Some really only applicable to the impossibility of Zombie Apocalypse. Fun to ponder, nonetheless.
