How much do you know about your hometown? How much do you know about the surroundings, the people, the places, the terrain? It’s a good chance that you don’t know anywhere near as much as you think. Think about Ogden. Think about the streets, the smells, the people…
Think about those streets overflowing with panic. Crazed people with firearms, crazed people looting, robbing, killing, assaulting, screaming, yelling…Not too exciting to think about right?
Think about that exact template…with hundreds, if not THOUSANDS, of zombies. That’s right, I said it. Zombies. How would you handle yourself? Are you prepared? Are you ready? Do you really think that you know where to go, how to get out, how to make your stand?
I’m going to go grab some Pop-Tarts, and eat real quick, while you let this sink in. Don’t worry, my children, I will return to you.
Mmmmmmmn, just what the doctor ordered…I apologize, where were we? OH YEAH! How to survive a zombie outbreak in the city of Ogden.
Over the next few weeks, IndieOgden will bring to you my personal quest to make sure that all of you faithful readers will be able to not only survive this impending apocalypse, but to hopefully educate you about some awesome things and places in the Ogden area that you had no idea even existed.
Over the next few weeks, I will explore, and scour the Ogden area to attempt to find some of the answers to these important topics…
1- I will go over the (hopefully obvious) places to NOT go to, and to stay away from in the initial panic.
2 – Stock up on supplies, and survival gear.
3 – Find weapons, and tools to aide in your survival.
4 – Find places IN the city that you should be made aware of, in case you can’t get out of the city right off the bat.
5 – Talk to other “zombie experts” in the area, to see if we can’t figure out a citywide exit strategy that we can call into effect, when this happens.
You cannot be ready for things that you do not prepare for folks. I don’t do this for myself. My survival pack is ready, and in a safe, accessible location. My machetes are sharpened, and ready. My exit strategy is set, and planned. I do this for you, the faithful readers. I have been tasked with helping you to survive, and I will do JUST that. As a member of the Faded Sky Entertainment team, (the foremost zombie experts in the area), in association with IndieOgden, I feel that this is something that ALL should be educated on. We love you all, and want you to feel safe.
Hopefully, after reading this series of articles, you will be able to liken yourselves to Forrest Gump, after investing in Apple, and speaking of money.
One less thing to worry about.
My goal is for the readers to be able to sleep well at night. Consider my words your proverbial glass of warm milk. Consider my expertise your proverbial…sword of Godric Gryffindor?
Rock over London,
Rock on Chicago,
Arby’s…It’s good mood food.
Jeff Dillon is a 31 year old graduate (with honors) from the Slytherin house, and gained his doctorate at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. He is a veteran of the battle for Endor, he was the drummer for the rock band Drive Shaft, and was a part of a secret genetics team at InGen until…”The Incident”.
Nowadays, he spends his time as an independent filmmaker, with the Faded Sky Entertainment production company, and an avid arts advocate. You can usually find Jeff under the pseudo moniker, “Sookie” at local bars singing karaoke with his friends, and a cold PBR, (you have probably never heard of it though).
He enjoys his time with a really good book, horror films, indie music, pop music, corn dogs, coffee, beer, or trying to convince people that 28 Days Later is NOT a zombie film.
