Ten Reasons Why Backpackers Will Survive a Zombie Apocalypse

  1. You already have a stash of dehydrated, non-perishable, or freeze dried foods.
  2. You know how to start a fire using at least three different methods
  3. You can easily carry a heavy pack over difficult and strenuous terrain (did anyone catch that Doomsday Planners show where the girl couldn’t carry her pack six miles? Ha!)
  4. You are well skilled in purifying water using a variety of methods.
  5. You have a portable shelter (although it will only be helpful after the zombies have died of starvation)
  6. You have a small first aid kit
  7. You can survive a night in the elements
  8. You probably already know a great- middle- of no-where camping spot to “bug out” to
  9. You practice your “bug out” plan all summer long
  10. After you survived that nasty giardia fluke last backpacking trip zombie viruses got nothing on you ;) ;)
