Re: Fortifiying Your Bus Against Intruders Or Attack?

I got an email from a list server today that indicated the University of Florida had a "zombie attack" emergency plan among others listed on its e-Learning Support Services web site. Unfortunately, it is no longer there, so we are on our own again, though in this report there are some quotes from the plan that may be helpful:

Re: Fortifiying Your Bus Against Intruders Or Attack?

Smitty...i completely agree. i dont have a problem with a collection...or even an arsenal....my point is just that in my humble opinion, we can go too far and it becomes paranoia. but i am totally fine with protecting myself and loved ones. i fear that if we put too much focus on all this stuff though we start focusing on protecting our loved ones and stop enjoying time with our loved ones because we are all focused on the safety. id rather die happy, then live paranoid. maybe thats just me. haha.

Re: Fortifiying Your Bus Against Intruders Or Attack?

Something we are overlooking with bulletproofing a bus...

Ok so zombies are everywhere: Napalm, flame throwers, and shotguns are at the ready. The bus is bulletproofed and ready to roll.

BUT wait, what about the radiation fallout?

Serious think about it...No ammount of protection against the crazies, cannies, and zombies, is worth a **** if the air kills you.

Lol but I was serious...
Radiation is a very real possible threat that could pose a very real possible problem in a post apocoliptic setting...But your right it could possibly de-rail the threads focus so sorry didnt mean to hijak your thread.

Must be for those inner city routes. Los Angeles... Chicago... New York... all potential customers.

Smitty, you take the prize for best looking alternative vehicle! Love that second beastie! Looks like something from the original Battlestar Galactica series! (yeah, I'm a geek at heart).
