With me being from the UK the access to weapons such as guns are quite limited, but saying this infection is worldwide id work it like this.
With the infection starting and everyone knowing the epidemic as it stands, i already have a couple of weapons always on stand by. The crowbar and baseball bat in my wardrobe for easy access and of course nice hand to hand combat weapons when coming up against walkers. also a Remington 332, 12ga, 28" barrel shotgun in my loft which is used for clay pigeon shooting. Which i personally would cut down for easier close range shooting and storage. For if I've learnt anything from TWD is you only want to use your gun if very necessary.
Once I've got my weapons and established who of my friends and family etc. Is still alive. I'd set up camp for the first couple of weeks with supplies kept in the garage for emergencies (such as water, tinned goods etc.) In my house, cutting off access from the downstairs to the upstairs, of course boarding windows and doors downstairs for extra protection. Me and my best friend have always said my house would be safest due to the positioning and it being in a suburban area and well situated just outside of the small town close to the city. Although i still live with my mum (being 20 and trying to get a mortgage is never easy ) the thought of trying to save my girlfriend and every other person I've come to love is very tempting but of course id need to find out their situation before even attempting to. Apart from my mum and my best friend the only other person worth risking my life for would be my girlfriend.
If all has gone well and my plan of action has worked, we will have remained in the loft of my house rationing on tinned food and water with no more than 5/6 of us. Once the infection has taken its toll, and the country or world has been taken over. This is of course if the Army or any other national force hasn't been able to control the problem. We would want to make my way to my best friends Josh's holiday cottage in Richmond, North Yorkshire. About a 20 minute drive from Catterick Army Barracks. The reason we would have waited so long is hopefully although many more people are infected the roads and what not will already have been blocked from the traffic and its a lot easier to get past roamers than it is to get past a live person wanting you to stop. To drive from where i live which is outside Leeds, West Yorkshire. To Richmond is usualy about a hour and a half drive, so bikes would be our first option, although not very stable and protective when against roamers it will be a LOT easier to navigate through the traffic which i'm assuming will have taken its toll on all the major motorways, with people trying to escape.
Me, Josh and my girlfriend all luckily know how to ride motorbikes, so carrying passengers shouldn't be a problem to be honest, and with no more than hopefully 6 i don't see an issue with it. The journey to Richmond should take no longer than a day at most, that is with stops to take look of the area and stop off for supplies on the way from service stations and local shops. Once we arrive near Catterick the area is very rural and mostly farm land and small villages. So hopefully we won't encounter many walkers and if we do should be able to take care of them very easily. The only issue we have is that if there are some soldiers left at Catterick it's not going to be very easy or safe to get weapons or supplies from there but a risk me and Josh would gladly take to help get us set up at his cottage.
Once we've hopefully got some weapons and supplies from the barracks, we will head to the cottage which i previously stated is only a 20 minute drive away. And is situated about 200 yards from the top of a very large hill with big stone chimneys that run along the hill line. These chimneys were used for the disused coal mine used in Hurst just off where the cottage is located. The chimneys would hopefully be used for lookout points as they see for absolute miles, weather forbidding of course, which in England is never promising!
Anyway hopefully we will have a nice set up there, with log fires for warmth, there is already about 15 filled gas canisters outside for the cooker which hopefully will not have been looted by local farmers, and we will see what happens from there. Whether it be running into more survivors or losing people on the way.
The only concern i have is the locals themselves i cant imagine they would be very welcoming with everything that's been happening and mostly all of them being farmers and carrying guns. That and the hope the cottage will not already have people in it, but that road would be crossed when we got there.
Thanks for reading, that is of course if you could be bothered Any questions i'll gladly answer!
