Things You Need to Know In Order to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

While most of us really don’t really believe there will be a zombie apocalypse, it’s still a lot of fun to think about what life would be like if it did happen . And ‘cause you never know what the future will bring, it’s always best to be prepared. So here are some handy links to survive the zombie apocalypse.

Oil Lamps

When everything goes all wrong with the zombies appearing and society breaking down, electricity may become a thing of the past. So you will definitely need some light of some sort. Oil lamps are fairly simple to make with olive oil, a wick, and water. The author of Down to Earth has a tutorial on how to do this. She credits Mother Earth news with a similar project. Anyway, it’s something you’ll need to know if the apocalypse does occur.

Paracord Survival Bracelet

These are somewhat simple to make, you can wear them, and it’s an easy way to have rope available when you need it. Which if you are trying to survive in a world without modern conveniences can be often. DIY Ready provides a great tutorial.

All Purpose Healing Salve

And because there will probably be limited access to medical care it would be handy to know how to make your own healing salve. You can see a tutorial over at The Paleo Mama. Burns, beestings, and fever blisters are among a few of the things she claims the salve will treat. Its looks like something that would be needed in order to survive in a post-apocalyptic world.
