AlaskaI have a fascination with Alaska and I watch almost every show related to it. I think the everyday culture of up north living will translate well when the apocalypse starts. I have noticed how the rural Alaskan culture survives in a manner that most of us in the lower 48 would have a hard time adjusting to. For instance, if you want electricity you will need one or a combination of the following energy sources: a generator, solar panels, or a wind turbine.  I say good luck with the solar option when you have several feet of snow and you will never have enough fuel to keep the generator going through the winter with the noise probably able to drive a sane man crazy!  A smaller homestead size wind turbine and a huge load of fire wood are your best options. A fresh water source will be key. If you lock these items and location down you can bag some large game in the fall, fish in the summer, chop a little wood and crawl into bed with the wife for the winter and wait for the thaw, and the ZOMBIE mess to blow over.

IF YOU CAN SURVIVE AN ALASKAN WINTER, ZOMBIES ARE EASY.

Will you choose a gas or diesel vehicle when the apocalypse hits? In my opinion you need to find a middle ground vehicle that runs on gasoline just for its overwhelming availability everywhere. I suggest a full blown 4X4 slightly lifted, with a plow on the front, this will allow you to remove objects (ZOMBIES) when at a nice cruising speed going through neighborhoods, scrounging for resources. You will want to make sure that you have the airbags removed or off, because you will be bumping into objects and no need to get blasted with a bag, when in a hurry to make decisions and evasive maneuvers.  Nothing clouds the judgment more than a large explosion followed up by a smack to the head. I will personally have a F250 with heated and air-conditioned seats, fully loaded and a Detroit Lions logo on the back window.

DON”T FORGET TO FILL UP THE GUN RACK ON YOUR TRUCK….
