    It's interesting how schools talk about this seriously. I was talking to my friend's son who's in high school and he said one of his teachers devotes a period to the zombie apocalypse. They actually write essays on it for grades.

    It's pretty simple. Find a river especially a large one. Then find a sailing boat with a motor just in case to live on the river. Zombies can't swim, the fishing industry will be destroyed so it replenishes the rivers with food, and you have fresh water. The only thing you have to worry about is people.

    Or how will you get meat? vegetable's? shelter from sun? Unless you meant living by the river. Then if it gets overrun you're out of luck, then you go to the questions above I asked.

    I am talking about living on the river... mostly. I'm sure a boat can be found to accommodate those things. I wasn't talking about a row boat. Maybe a comfortable sailing boat with an engine just in case. Also cultures who have lived in colder climates have lived on mostly a meat diet. I know not the best but if you have no other choice, it's better than nothing. As for veggies... you can grow some on the boat. A couple Walking Dead episodes ago the group was basically starving to death where people were upset that they killed and ate some feral dogs. Fish is better. Farms with orchards tend to be near rivers. That's the advantage of being mobile on a river where the undead can't swim.

    This is true. I wish that we had a zombie apoc. thread. I think it be fun to share everyones ideas on how they would survive then people debate them.

    I am curious, why can't the zombies swim? They certainly won't drown given that they are already dead. Do they even breath air? And depending on which version of the zombies, some can actually accomplish quite impressive athletic feats (e.g. World War Z).

    If you go by The Walking Dead yes they don't drown but they can't swim. Currents will take them away or sink to the bottom.

    Good idea, but large bodies of water are harder to come by in some states than in others.

    Yeah, but the zombies will still want to follow you into the water. They will be trapped in the water since they can't swim. The bodies will be left to decompose in the water. This will cause the water to be infested with deadly bacteria and undrinkable.

    Decomposition is a part of the ecosystem. It's a river. It flows. It filters. If we go by the Walking Dead everyone is already infected. How many zombies walking into a river does it take to destroy an entire river system? My bet is nature wins that battle. What about animals that drink water from rivers to which the survivors kill and eat? In Africa large herds of animals cross rivers and it is afterwards littered with bodies of the ones that couldn't make it across. Do all those decomposing bodies kill the river? If there are people surviving the zombie apocalypse, that means an ecosystem is surviving for them to be alive.
