A crossbow could be one of the handiest weapons to have on Z day. It's quiet and in small groups all of the ammunition could be retrieved and re-used.
It may look *** but wearing leather could save your life. It would take significant effort to chew through leather to get to the skin.
The only thing vehicles are good for after Z day are for barricades. Park them in front of doors, remove the tires and you have a 1000+ pound immovable wall.
One thing people don't think about is the zombies are not the only enemy to worry about. Crime will run rampant. People will rob and kill for food and supplies for their families. Be weary of groups outside of yours. Working together is vital for survival but do not become too comfortable with anyone.
Steal as many cans of propane as possible after Z day. The electricity will eventually be out and using a grill may be the only way to heat up food. Fires will work too but the smoke may draw attention to your camp.
Be prepared to garden. If you have an area safe enough to go outside, growing your own food is something would be extremely beneficial.
One benefit of the terrifying running not dead zombies are they are easier to kill. The dead zombies require a brain shot, while the live ones can be killed with a shot to center mass.
