    Live on a battleship or an Ocean liner for numerous obvious reasons.. But yeh... Reality wise I'd probably die since I live in one of the most populated cities in the world.. dependant on the speed of turning I may have a chance... But if I was back home in Australia... I'd prob try and find a fortified vehicle, or some kind of truck full of meat and get the hell out of dodge... bring a few bush tucker manuals, a beef jerky maker and live off the land like the hillbillies of state Alabama. I'd also bring along my trusty Banjo.

    Here's a possible vehicle choice. Not truly fortified, but about as self-contained as anything you're going to find and more comfortable than most:

    Right at this moment. I'm in a hospital, so I'd be raiding the pharmacy for some super antibiotics, the snack machines for food, then jack an ambulance to hightail it outta the city. Gotta pick up the wife and kids.

    If I were headed to any type of vehicles, I'd be headed to a navy ship. I'd pull it a few yards off shore, in order to send scouting parties back to shore. Aside from that, I'm on a military base so getting some kind of weapon wouldn't be too hard.

    If you're looting a hospital be sure to look for their emergency food supply. Somewhere near the kitchens they're supposed to have enough food on hand for the entire population of the hospital for a week. It's usually canned goods with a long shelf life, the kind of stuff you'd use to stock a bomb shelter. There should also be camp stoves with fuel, emergency water storage and water purification supplies.

    If a zombie infection was in a hospital and you were inside... It would be very bad... You have a bunch of sick people laying in bed... Sounds like an infestation heaven... But why does everyone want to immediately leave whatever area they are in? I don't mean that is your permanent base but if everyone in the entire area is going to one place, it won't be good. I would fortify whatever place I was in and hold out for a few days until things calm down. Then find a more permanent base. I mean if I'm wrong tell me but I don't think it is a good idea to just jump right in to your plan because more than likely you aren't the only one with that plan... Just my opinion

    Let's think the hospital scenario through given what we've seen in We're Alive.

    During Phase One of a zombie apocalypse you can expect the hospitals to get over run quickly and early. No matter how, or where the outbreak occurs, some of the infected are going to end up being transported to the hospital, where they are going to turn and spread the infection. The first wave of zombies, whether they come in through the doors or they come out of the emergency room, will over run the hospital and in short order it is going to be picked clean of human prey. The key to survival during this phase is to find a good place to hide and secure yourself. I'd suggest locking yourself in the most secure room you can find (radiology labs, store rooms, etc.) and douse the approaches with alcohol to hide your scent.

    In Phase Two you can expect most of the zombies to leave in search of places where there is still prey. We saw this We're Alive at The Tower, and The Other Tower, where all but a handful of zombie hangers-on were gone by the time survivors searched the locations. Even Cain Memorial Hospital seemed to be occupied by just a handful of lurkers and malingerers up to the point that the zombie army arrived, presumably from the Stadium. This would be the time to search the hospital to gather supplies, look for other survivors and make your plans. Just be sure to arm yourself to deal with the lurkers!

    Sidebar Question, do the We're Alive zombies turn injured or sick humans, or do they just kill them? The only example I can remember of a "disabled" zombie I can remember is Cindy, Angel's girlfriend, who appears to have had two broken legs. And there's a strong likelihood that that happened either after she was turned or while it was happening. In a hospital scenario this is important because it could significantly impact the number of zombies that linger at the hospital.

    Phase Three of a hospital scenario would involve gathering supplies and preparing for the long term. A hospital should be a great place to collect supplies. We've already discussed medicine and medical supplies. We know that there should be a lot of food present in the facility, both for the daily use of the residents and shelf-stable emergency supplies. It should also be possible to find a supply of guns and ammo. Look for the hospital security force's offices, where you should find their spare weapons and ammo. You should check the Emergency Room, for the weapons removed from injured police during triage, and look for any places in the hospital where security force made their stand.

    If you plan to stay in the hospital it's time to pick a base of operations, fortify the place and stock it with the supplies you gather. If your plan is to move out then you need to acquire transportation and pick a spot where you can pre-position supplies before you leave.

    I think people would want to get to loved ones. As Angel and Saul did. That's why I'd want to get what provisions I could, then make the attempt to get out of the city. But we've seen (heard) about the gridlock, so maybe an ambulance wouldn't be the way to get to safety. It would all depend on how quickly the virus is spreading and how quickly people are figuring out they are screwed. I work in a hospital about an hour away from where I live. I'd be going crazy trying to get out of the city and to my family.

    Lets see... Hmmm... Well I am in a 22 story building in San Fransisco... Most of my co-workers are pretty lazy and only a few of them go to the gym with me. I(and a few others) are capable of out-running everyone else...so if some runners showed up they would eat all of my chubby co-workers before getting to me.

    The "security" room two floors down has some batons and some tazers but I have only seen one security guard with a real gun... no I wouldn't be able to make it in time.

    The quickest way down would be the elevator but that would be flooded quickly and if the electricity goes out, well, I wouldnt want to be in there- except that this building has back-up generators... so maybe.. No the elevators would still be flooded. As a weapon I would probably take the fire extinguisher that is 4 cubicles to my left (or was it 5?) and there is also my keyboard...

    So I would take my chances falling down this 22 floor building and -after I land flat on my feet unhurt- I would have my keyboard as a back-up weapon and the fire extinuisher as my primary weapon. My plan is fool-proof!!
