Two books worth finding

books are an essential part of cultural identity. It may be necesary to preserve that, remember where we came from, or simply be entertained while holding back the legions of undead.

Cooking with Sour Milk


to make soured milk

Found this article for using sour milk. Of course, if there is no longer refrigeration, (because the aliens have taken control of the power grid in an attempt to squash the zombie uprising) you will need to act fast on sour milk acquisition. On the other hand, if, as you travel across the country to your safe harbor you come across an abandoned home with some milk, it’s good to know how to utilize this source of protein.

It’s always good to test things out before an emergency. If you want to wait for it to naturally spoil, I’ve found that letting it expire slightly in the fridge works. To test if it is ready, simply try adding it to your tea in the morning. If it curdles, it’s good to go! If not, happy tea drinking.

Fire starters


It is always important to consider making fire in emergency situations. Mac reminded me the other day that having flint is useless if you have no dry tinder. So here is a DIY fire starter tutorial I found online!

Camo clothing

While researching whether it will be important to wear camouflage with zombie forces out and about, I ran across this site. Lots of useful information.

Sight: due to degradation of their corneas, zombies suffer from severe myopia. In addition, they are colorblind.

Hearing: zombies go deaf within a few weeks of transformation. Efforts to rehabilitate them through ASL training have thus far proved unsuccessful.

Smell: zombies have even more receptor cells than vampires. If the wind is right, zombies can smell humans from as far as several miles away.

So, disguising our scent is more important it seems. I’ll be looking into what that means later.

Beautiful food saving


In the world after TSHTF, we may find ourselves without the modern conveniences of electricity and refrigerators. Until someone cobbles together an awesome steampunk refrigerator, this will have to do.

Packing paracord


A bracelet / belt / or chocker made from paracord is an excellent way to carry yardage of super-strong rope without taking up space inside your pack. You can make several if you are crafty. Or purchase ready-made items through Etsy, or REI.
