The 25 Days of Undead Christmas – Day 11 (Night Vision)

For the eleventh day of my 25 Undead Christmas presents I want a set of ATN PVS7-3 Night Vision goggles.

Night is one of the most dangerous times for survivors.  A flashlight is great if you can risk it, but what if you can’t?

You go out scavenging and find yourself stuck in the city after dark. You are trapped in a multi layered environment that you don’t know and has too many places a zombie could be lurking.  But you need to keep moving, you need to find someplace to hole up. Using a flashlight is an option, but if there are thralls all around you, you are going to attract a lot of attention turning that light on.

That’s where the night vision goggles will save your bacon.  You will be able to move without attracting any attention once you get the hang of it.  Just like everything else, practice, practice practice.  Go find yourself some crackheads and a bus.  Take everyone to an abondoned building (there are plenty around thanks to the economy) and just before dark, tell them you have ten ounces of crack in your pockets, then switch off the lights and see if you can avoid them using the goggles.

Great training, and great fun.
