The Base

1 Comments

During the zombie apocalypse three different areas will exist: the Base, the Wild, the Zone.

The wild is what we call the forest, woods, wilderness. Anything non city. Roaming zombies and wild animals are the biggest threats in the wild. More details in an upcoming blog.

The zone is any existing city structure. Zone is short for war zone. Large cities are to be avoided like the plague. They will literally be war zones. More on this in an upcoming blog.

The Base is the safe area. It is as close to normal small city life as you will find during the height of the zombie apocalypse. There will be many names for these places: cities of light, safe areas, civilization, places of refuge, etc. The S&R teams will call them simply the Base. There will be food, safety, law and order, housing, and medical care to some degree. Civilization will exist in the base. You may not think that is much now, but wait until things fall apart. Everyone will wish they were at a base. In these places everyone will be expected to work and perform some type of labor to help the society survive. There will be no grocery stores, no fast food places, food will still be in short supply but at least there will be some. Where will the food come from? The people will have to grow it. Remember, there will be no government bailouts or help during this period. People will be on their own. Everyone will need to pitch in to plant, weed, water, and harvest the food in order for the group to survive. Good sized bases will have animals to take care of. There will be a lot of work, but life in a base will be good. The people will be happy and safe. If you are not in a base you need to find out where one is, form a pod, and travel there. When you get close they will find you and escort you in the rest of the way. Do not try to travel by yourself!! These will be dangerous times. There will need to be watches during the night, you need a group in order to rotate this work and still get sleep. Wild animals will become a major threat. There will be many wild animals and they will no longer fear humans. By this time humans will have become their primary food source because of the number of bodies available to feed on. Hence the plethora of wild animals.

Between the base and the other areas will be mini-bases. A mini base is a tightly guarded smaller safe area. Its purpose is to keep unwanted things away from the base, making the base that much safer. The mini base is also where the search and rescue (S&R) teams are sent out from. Teams are sent out from the mini base into the danger zones. Their job is two fold, scout out any problems approaching and report them, and find good people to escort back to the mini base. Once at the mini base the rescued people will be patched up, healed, fed, clothed, and rested. Once they are fit to travel they will be escorted to the base where they will be integrated into the society. I will be spending most of my time during this period at different mini bases because I will be working with the S&R teams. What will you be doing? The universe will tell you if you ask.

Each S&R team will have a seeker (upcoming blog). The seekers job is to discern between the good people that are welcomed in, and the bad people that are warned away. You really want to be considered a good person during this time period :). Trust me on this one.
