ZOMBIE MOVIES – The Living Dead (2020)

The Living Dead is one of those blends that probably sounded really cool when it was pitched. We are going to take a group of thieves, have them attempt a heist in an Undead infested estate, and see if they can survive.

This isn’t your standard Zombie Movie. It is quirky and at times hard to follow exactly what the writers were going for.

Trust me when I say you can bypass this movie, and thank me for taking a bullet for you in the process. I’m giving The Living Dead an 18/100. It is slow, not a great blend of two genres, and the story and characters overall aren’t well done.

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 47 (Diversion Safe Water Bottle)

Back when I travelled a lot I loved my Diversion Safe Water Bottle. I could keep cash safely hidden whether it was in my room, or while I was on the move. I hate those safe’s in hotel rooms, I don’t trust them, but with this Diversion Safe Water Bottle I know most thieves and muggers aren’t even going to realize they missed the good stuff.

I suggest keeping some emergency cash in your Diversion Safe Water Bottle as well as copies of the critical keys you may need. Then buy one for each of your loved ones so they can be prepared as well. If you really love them, but some survival cash in there as a secondary present as well.

  • Stealthy dry-storage container – 3 x 3 inches.
  • Stash card, keychain or cash.
  • Keep Drink Hot Or Cold For Hours.
  • A perfect gift to give to your friends & family.

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 42 (Hanger Diversion Safe)

Prior to Covid-19 I travelled a lot for work and I always kept one of these Hanger Diversion Safes in my bag. The room saves are easy to open by anyone who works for the hotel, and anyone who wants to get into them, and most of the time they are using the master key or master passcode which means no evidence they were there.

Years ago I had a hundred bucks disappear from wallet on vacation, while it was in the room save. I had no way to prove it, and maybe I just miscounted, but looking back I’ve always figured it was someone at the hotel who took it.

In my opinion, the best way keep my cash, password, and other valuable safe is to keep them hidden, whether I’m travelling or at home, which makes these Hanger Diversion Safes perfect.

You might even find one of these Hanger Diversion Safes under one of my jackets in my closet, and you are going to regret why I’m reaching for that hanger if you aren’t supposed to be in my house.

  • Fits underneath your hanging garments.
  • Hides valuables in your closet among your clothes.
  • For home, office, travel, hotels or college dorms.
  • Large capacity.
  • Fits most standard plastic and wire hangers (hanger not included).

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 29 (Paracord)

With this Paracord on hand you are limited in what you can do with it by only your imagination. I keep a bundle of this with all my builds, even with my Tactical Vest.

All I need is this Paracord and my Kershaw Knife and a pole arm and I’ve got a spear to hunt or defend myself with. When it comes to killing Zombies, being able to do it from an arms length away is always a good idea.

Broken shoelaces? No problems.

Need to make an emergency splint? No problems.

Repair a pack? No problems.

The list could go on and on but I think you get the idea.

  • 100 Feet of 550 Cord Hanks Type III paracord.
  • 550 pound test.
  • Diameter is approximately 1/8″.
  • UV and fade resistant.
  • Will not rot or mildew.
  • Ideal for survival needs.

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 27 (Waterproof Maps)

Obviously the Waterproof Maps you by are going to be dictated by where you live, but they are a critical survival item. Buy two sets, and pack one in the EDC Pouches of your Tactical Vest. Why two? Because you need to make sure you can use the other one. What good is a Map if you can’t use it when you need to?

Be prepared. Pick a destination and then use that Map and figure out if you can get from point A to point B. Don’t wait until things get bad and you are running for your life to figure out you don’t really know how to get to your rally point or bolt hole. GPS is great, but what happens if the Zombie Apocalypse was caused by a meteor shower that took out the satellites first?

  • Waterproof.
  • Folds for easy storage.

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 26 (Portable Charger Power Bank)

I love this Portable Charger Power Bank. It is small enough to easily fit in a pocket, or my EDC Pouch. That means I have a recharge for my phone or radio when the sh*t hits the fan I can still get news, and if I’m lucky I can call my loved ones for emergency changes to the rally point or direct them away from dangers I’ve already encountered.

In the modern world, this Portable Power Bank could mean the difference between life and death, and most other times it is a huge convenience factor. Keep it charged, be ready for whatever happens next.

  • Ultra Small.
  • Smallest and lightest 10,000mAh portable charger.
  • High-Speed Charging.
  • Optimized Dual USB Ports.

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 25 (Clozex Emergency Laceration Closures)

I love these Clozex Emergency Laceration Closures for a lot of reasons. The first is that I used one to close a wound on one of my kids that would have otherwise required stitches. It also saved me a trip to the ER – but we did see a doctor when we got back home, because of course he got hurt while we were on vacation in Mexico. I’m sure their docs are awesome, but I my med kit with me and this saved us a huge hassle and quite honestly kept us from having to sit on my son while someone put stitches in him.

You never know when your going to need medical supplies, so I usually keep my med gear duplicated. One attached to my Tactical Vest, and another in my vehicle.

Be Prepared. Survive.

  • 3 Clozex Closures: 3/4″ (20mm), 1 1/8″ (30mm), 1 1/2″ (40mm).
  • Clozex Closures are a non-invasive, painless, alternative to stitches for the treatment of small cuts and lacerations.
  • Be prepared when accidents happen – anywhere.
  • Adhesive based, topical skin closure that does NOT puncture the skin.
  • Developed for medical professionals for use in surgery, emergency room and urgent care centers.
  • When an ER is not accessible, Clozex is a great alternative that offers immediate and durable wound closure at a fraction of the cost.

ZOMBIE SERIES – Z NATION, SEASON 3, EPISODE 14, Everybody Dies in the End

Everybody Dies in the End is the Season 3 finale, and I’m hoping its as high octane as last episode, which really kicked some butt.

The Man has the now teen Lucy, and he’s trying to convince her that no one is coming to save her, not even Addy – but Lucy still has faith.

Zombie Guide

What The Man doesn’t know is that Lucy is a smart kid, and she’s left behind a Zombie Guide for Addie to use as a tracker. He also doesn’t know that Kaya is tracking him, and directing Team Warren down on him as well.

When The Man get’s to the meeting point, he finds it flooded with Zombie’s, and they aren’t the kind that Lucy can control. Good thing for The Man a strike team from Zona is there to save his bacon.

Strike Team Mows Down A Horde

The Man quickly discovers that whatever is going on, things at Zona may be falling apart. The strike team he thought was sent to pick him up is actually just a group of soldiers left there without orders, and just like the other Zona survivors, they are losing their immunity.

Outside Addie, Doc, and the Zombie Guide have reached the Zona compound, but its a long way up, and no easy way to get in. Addie decides to climb, leaving Doc behind with the Zombie Guide in case she is wrong. It’s not too long before Doc is ambushed by paratroopers, and they don’t appear to be doing so well either.

Infected Eyes

Doc and Zombie Guide are about to get overrun when Team Warren shows up to save him, but Zombie Guide is given Mercy before Doc can explain that he’s helping them.

We now have two teams closing in on The Man. Addie is climbing the mountain as Team Warren is coming through from the lower entrance that the now dead Zona Paratroopers opened up before turning.

Inside, The Man is trying to comfort Lucy, telling her he’s going to protect her, even from death. I was really expecting her to bite him as he held her, but I guess it was just a moment of honest fear on her part.

While all this is going on 10K is dying. How to do you save a dying man? Well, during the Zombie Apocalypse you strangle him, have Murphy bite him, and inject him with a dose of Zombie Vaccine all at the same time.

Which leads us to the final confrontation. Team Warren has reached the top of the Zona compound. Warren is shocked to see Lucy is now a teen, but Doc has a pretty good explanation.

It’s The Apocalypse Stupid

As Warren is trying to negotiate with The Man Murphy takes the moment of distraction to wing The Man and grab Lucy. Warren faces off with The Man for a moment before Murphy steps in, wanting to put an end to The Man once and for all. Unfortunately for Murphy, his brief moment of strength ends up getting both him and Warren shot.

Double Shot

With Warren and Murphy down The Man picks up Lucy, throws her over his shoulder, and takes her up to the helipad.

This is when thing get really weird. Addie shows up, grabs Lucy, and they jump off the edge of the platform. Red’s little brother then follows them over the edge, and Season 3 ends on a cliff hanger as a futuristic flying vessel shows up and shoots a pulse rifle several times. We see Murphy and Warren’s eyes glowing bluish before the season comes to an end.

Really? This is how we are ending Season 3. After the massive build up from Duel, Everybody Dies in the End is a bit of a letdown. Everybody Dies in the End earned itself a 70/100, and is Worth Your Time, but I really hate cliffhanger endings like this.

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 23 (S.O.S. Emergency Food Ration)

I’m just outside several major cities, but when the sh*t hits the fan I’m planning on heading as deep into the woods as I can, and my guess is I’ll be walking a big chunk of the way as the roads are going to be death traps, full of stranded motorists who’ve been bitten and turned. Marching on an empty stomach is now fun so I keep one of these S.O.S. Emergency Food Rations in one of my EDC Pouches.

  • Plastic cookie wrap
  • Emergency food
  • 3600 + calories per package
