Map Of The Dead: How To Survive The Zombie Apocalypse

Tyler Durden's picture


On a long enough timeline... the zombies will arise, and exhibit a sudden craving for brain stew. So what is a person who will have survived the great central bank collapse to do? Full interactive map for any specific location in the US can be found at

US Danger Zones...

And for our friends at the New York Fed...

Glad I'm not in a danger zone :)  Although there is a small area about 20 minutes car ride away.

Dude, you miss out on the fun. As Peter Clines points out in his Ex series, Exheroes and Expatriots, one of the hobbies to points based on ending famous zombies.

We can include rich zombies now.

And politico zombies.

Wed, 04/11/2012 - 12:35 | 2334822 Imminent Crucible
Imminent Crucible's picture

It's just a map of population density based on the concentration of man-made structures. The theory seems to be More People=More Zombies, but I think that's a bit oversimplified.

Manhattan has a concentration of high-end zombies (banksters and fundies) while Houston, for example, has a concentration of low-end zombies.

When the SNAP cards stop working, I'm more worried about the Trayvon Contingent than the John Paulsons and Jamie Dimons. Either way, I'll be in Baja California on the coast.

All zombie defense is local.  For all the uninformed above - "Zombie" is code for destitute and desperate survivors of the collapse of ponzi-funded infrastructure and basic economic activity that provides >>50% of the US population with their ability to survive day-to-day.  This map should be your guide on 1) whether to plan to bug out or bug in when conditions suggest it is time to do so.  2) How many and much guns, ammo, defensive infrastucture, and training you should be acquiring right now in advance of 1).

I would take a zombie event way before i would take a economic collapse. Because zombies don't panic and go empty the grocery store shelves. And also they won't shoot at you and try and rape your wife and daughters in a without rule of law situation. We can only pray for zombies at this point, boy wouldnt that be a relief.

It's called a "looting crew" and exactly why I don't plan to go anywhere near any town when the flag goes up.  Where do you think what little (or formerly) law enforcement there is will concentrate?  How many ad-hoc looting crews will be formed the moment it becomes clear that private security, law enforcement, and perhaps National Guard are spread too thin?

Recommend you see the great vintage movie "The Hallelujah Trail", and think about tens of "Battle of Whiskey Hill"s breaking out in urban areas, this time with semi-automatic weapons.  No thanks, I'll bug in or out, but looking for trouble will be suicide.

Your need more arrows on the map pointing out hot spots.  Let me help out.  Detroit, Philadelphia, Boston, New York, Charlotte, Richmond, entire state of Deleware and Maryland, Atlanta, Miami, Orlando, Birmingham, Memphis, Denver, St. Louis, just to name a few.  Anywhere people are stacked on top of eachother like cord wood.  The food supply will be gone in about 4 days.  People will come out of those cities like angry ants marching on a path of destruction.  The center of the country is the best "cushion" against such a migration.  Many will be picked off along the way, and others will calm down some or even stop in other areas before they get there.  Better start the county militias now and be prepared to defend your borders.  It will be hard to turn away the truly needy but the time will come when you have no choice.

Sad to say, but this is all part of the CB Cartel plan.

When the SHTF, the muppets will be going at each with guns, knives and pitchforks.

The CBs and their chosen minions will be in secure off-shore locations observing the mayhem thru satellite feeds and air reconaissance.

The Central Planning boys have been planning population reduction measures for a long time.

Wars help but are only regional in their effect.  Biological measures have not been used on a large scale because of their unpredictability.  But turn off the energy and the Oil Spigot Worldwide and you have a Global game of survival of the fittest muppets.

When the population has been reduced to the desired level.  They can return as saviors to introduce the survivors to the new global government.

I couldn't agree more.  Where I live, if I were to go to the sheriff and suggest that contingency plans be made to contain the golden horde to our north, they would probably report me to DHS.  If one were to invite the sherrif in Butte Montana to an NRA meeting or gun club meeting to discuss something like this, he would probably form a committee to do so.
