  2. Ok here's my list:
    Binoculars
    Lighters
    A tire iron
    Your trusty sword; a shashka
    Fishing line
    I would use the binoculars to scout out from a safe distance. Find a relatively narrow area to lure the zombies to that is away from the survivors.
    Tie the fishing line across the area. Use the lighter to start a fire from debris that would undoubtedly be available thus causing a secondary barrier after the fishing line but far enough away not to burn the line. Park the SUV beyond the fire so the fire is between the line and SUV.
    Lure the zombies by making excessive noise, jump the line and go around one end of the fire piles, get in the SUV and race back to get as many survivors as I can who cant run from the stragglers.
    Quickly establish a meeting place and alternative meeting places. Then buggar off with the ones who can't run and any supplies dumped into the SUV.
    There will be time to be thanked later....haha! The crowbar would be used for either taking out zombies or wretching apart pallets to burn. The sword is a weapon if needed and used to cut fishing line so there is some left for later.
    Whew! I probably could have come up with something better if I had more time to think but I dont believe that's an option here. ;)

    1. Great job, Terri! I was really curious to see what someone would do with fishing line! Loved your line . . . "there will be time to be thanked later." Great job with this and I hope you had fun playing! Thanks for participating!

  3. Here are my five items:
    1. A boot dagger
    2. lighters
    3. can of gasoline
    4. my trusty sword; a shashka
    5. fishing line

    I will use my boot dagger to kill any of the critters who dare to get close to me or to any of the living near me. The sword will be used to kill all those I want to kill just for the joy of ridding the area of the excess undead. The gasoline, fishing line, and lighters will be used to set up traps for the nasty little buggers. The other residents and I will dig deep trenches around our safe area. We will camouflage the trenches with leaves and other debris so they aren't visible to the zombies. We'll then surround the trenches with trip wires made from the fishing line drawn taut. We'll lure the living dead into our traps. When they've fallen inside, I'll drizzle them with a bit of the gasoline, then use fuses made from pieces of clothing lit with my wonderful lighters. I'll toss the fuses on top of the zombies and burn them until they are nothing but ashes. We'll dredge the trenches and repeat as necessary, protecting our safe zone. We can expand the zone, as the zombie population decreases and as we gain confidence and tools. As we gather additional supplies, we can make more sophisticated traps.

    1. Nice touch with the trenches! I'll need to remember that for the next book. Really creative use with the fishing line! And yeah, that sword sure will come in handy when killing zombies for kicks! Thanks for participating in the hop! I hope you had fun!

  4. My list
    Boot dagger
    Lighters
    can of gasoline
    Shashka
    empty beer bottle

    First I would fill the beer bottle with gas and use the boot dagger to rip the bottom of my shirt off into two pieces, one to make A Molotov cocktail bomb, and the othe part of the shirt I would put in the gas tank of the RV. Then I would would beep the horn a couple of times to draw some zombies to the RV. I would wait for the zombies to get close enough, then light the rag in the gastank with a lighter. Then I would make a run for the community center, with any luck the RV explosion took will take out alot of the zombies. Then I would light and throw my Molotov bomb into another group of zombies that stand between me and the community center. The remaining zombies I would take them out with my trusty shashka. I have lots of training with a sword and am bad ass, so I show no fear, and it's no problem for me to take out the rest of the zombies that my explostions didn't take care of. Just when I think I got them all, a lone zombie surprises me and I stumble backwards dropping my shashka, falling on my back. The zombie is on top of me before I know it. With one hand I push his head away and with my other hand a grab my boot dagger and stab him in the head. All the zombies surrounding the community center are dead and the remaining residents of Hamletville are safe.....for now

    1. Lol, awesome! I loved that you made Molotov's! Perfect! I think I would make a good side-kick for you in case of a zpoc! And I loved that you used the boot dagger! Thanks for playing! Hope you had fun!

    2. I had tons of fun :) I often think about what I would do in case of a zpoc, so this was right up my alley. I would gladly kick some zombie butt with you :) Thank you for putting togeather such a great giveaway.

  5. As tempting as Cthulu was, I went with:
    A boot dagger
    Lighters
    A can of gasoline
    Your trusty sword; a shashka
    Fishing line
    Assuming that I am a faster runner than in real life (because let's be honest... I'd be dead otherwise), I'm dashing back and forth setting up trip wires (unnoticed, of course, because I'm also stealthier in this hypothetical life), and cut the fish line with my trusty boot dagger. Here's where I prepare my jerry can bomb; I tear a strip off my shirt and stick it into the mouth of the gas can. I'll cause a ruckus, and the zombies will come shambling over. They'll stumble and fall, just like a line of putrefying dominoes. Once they're tumbling into a mushy pile, I'll light the fuse and toss it on top. The shashka will obviously be used to behead any strays. I'm doomed, of course, if the zombies survive the fire... ;)

    1. Lol, had to laugh at your honesty. To be truthful, if cardio is a necessity, I'm gonna be the first to go! But who knows, the zpoc forces us to learn new skills. Just see what you've learned about survival so far! Pretty impressive, lady!

  6. Pistol...I would use it to help me get away from the city. it is perfect for the quick get away.

    Slim Jims...you need your protein. food is going to scarce. plus if they are the long ones you could whip some one in the face with them to get you the distraction you may desperately need later on. ;) ok that is stretching it.

    Gas...duh.

    Sword...will defintely come in handy when ammo runs out. and it sure helped Michonne look like a bad mammajamma

    Screwdriver...again, a trusty little weapon when ammo is low or depleted.

    1. I so love that you went with the Slim Jims. I do believe Slim Jims should be the official food of the zpoc. It would last forever! And hey, after all that sword fighting and screwdriver stabbing, you need something!

  7. I chose the boot dagger- in case any of them get too close, or I could just chuck it between their eyes.
    The lighters, gasoline, and empty beer bottle- I would fill the bottle with gasoline, find some paper or cloth, light it with the lighter and chuck that sucker into the group of zombies. I would use any leftover gas to make the fire spread so that I could wipe out more of the horde.
    My trusty shaska would be used to behead as many of the horde as I could. If I couldn't behead them I would aim for their legs so that they couldn't follow as quickly.
    I would wipe out as many as possible and run like heck to try to find a safer area, taking all my goodies with me.

    1. Great call on the boot dagger! Always need to be prepare for those close encounters! Thanks for playing!

  8. I went with;

    A pistol - Depending on ammo, its best use will be to attract zombie attention away from the helpless
    Lighters - lighting distracting fires, and the fun gasoline
    A can of gasoline - either as fuel in a pinch to get away or for making zombie smores
    Your trusty sword; a shashka - zombie chopper & stabber
    Fishing line - Zombies aren't coordinated, pretty easy to have them sprawled out on the ground with some trip wires

    1. I love that so many people went with the shashka! Layla would be proud of you guys! Thanks for playing :)

  9. Alright, so before I left I picked up the bottled water. I'm zombie fodder if I get dehydrated while on the run. I'll use my trust lighter that I picked up at the gas station to cause a diversion - the light and movement from the fire will draw the zombies away from my group while we're trying to escape. I'll throw the extra can of gasoline in the back of the RV, because DUH we're gonna need it. My trusty shashka won't slow me down trying to load it when it runs out of ammo. Aim for the head, and double tap baby! The fishing line will work in a pinch to either use as a trip wire, or tying up any uncooperative humans.

    1. Ha! Great plan for those uncooperative humans. Or, you could just use them as zombie bait Shane-style!

  10. Here's my list: a pistol, the shop owner's gun; a tire iron; my trusty sword, the shashka; and fishing line.

    First, you can never have too many weapons, especially guns, even though they're loud. Being able to shoot a stinking zombie from a few yards away is better than being up close and possibly getting bitten.

    Second, I learned about setting up a perimeter with fishing line and metal objects tied to it by watching TWD. It would give anyone a chance to prepare if a walker stumbles by. If a horde happens by, maybe it would trip them up enough for me to get away.

    I chose the sword because, let's face it, I'm a Michonne wannabe. If I'm honest with myself, I would most likely have sore arms and be too exhausted to swing it after only a few minutes though. I think I should probably step up the upper body workouts before the z-poc hits.

    This was a lot of fun!

    1. Ha! I'm a Michonne wanna-be too. I invented Layla without every reading TWD comics and before the inclusion of Michonne. I thought I was unique, lol :)

  11. I grabbed THE DAGGER since it is good for close up defense and I hope to run away from any zombies I can. I really drooled over the slim jims, but grabbed the LIGHTERS since I failed fire making in girl scouts and would hate to eat any food I can find raw. The CAN OF GASOLINE to keep my vehicle running since I am over 60 and not able to walk really far. Of course I have to have the SWORD-SHASHKA since Michonne is the best role model for us girls. I could fix up a couple of zombies and tie them to make me invisible if I have to. And lastly, the BEER BOTTLE, to make a molotov cocktail to burn up zombies and help the survivors escape. I am not happy with my probable role as the aged sage of the group since Dale and Hershel met bad ends.

    1. Great job thinking grabbing the bottles for the molotov! Well, my books are a bit kinder to sages, so you're pretty safe with me!

  12. My five items:
    A boot dagger
    The bloody bible
    A tire iron
    Your trusty sword; a shashka
    Fishing line

    After directing the citizenry toward the nearest safe location, far from the zombie horde, I crack open the stained Scriptures and read Psalm 91. Emboldened, I wrap the tire iron in a few lengths of fishing line, ensuring that I have enough yardage to make a strong, square-shaped barrier out of the line. After that, I shout at the zombies, securing their rapt attention and leading them to an alleyway with windows on each side. I open a window and throw the tire iron through a window on the other side to act as an anchor. I make a beeline through the alley's buildings and surround the soon-to-be trapped mass of the undead with the remainder of the fishing line, tying it off to the tire iron. Trapped, the moaning abominations shamble in my direction, meeting with a flurry of blades while the citizens of Hamletville breathe a collective sigh of relief.

  13. So I grabbed the pistol, the lighters, the gas, my sword and the beer bottle. First I would use the pistol to pop a few of the zombies in the head, you know, to get their attention. Once I had their undivided, I would lure them into a section of woods, where I would toss a trusty Molotov cocktail against one of the trees that I had previously doused with the remaining gas (Sorry trees!! I love you but we're talking the end of the world here). In the ensuing chaos I would use my sword to chop off as many heads as possible before circling back to snag the town's folks and high tail it to grandma's to regroup and re-arm and send out small scouting parties to assess the situation and grab as many supplies as possible.
