Zombies… I’ve seen it once before in a rat, and I see it now in men. Once one gets a taste for its own kind, it can spread through the pack like a wildfire. Mindlessly chomping and biting at their own hinds. Nothing but the taste of flesh on their minds. You know the thing about a rat? It’s got life in its eyes. Black eyes like a doll’s eyes. Don’t seem to be living at all when it come at ya. Till it bites ya. And then the eyes roll over white. You don’t hear nothing but the screaming and the hollering…

more from field exercises

also that is a stellar camo face paint job using dark colors on the facial highlights (brow/nose/cheeks) mid ranges under the nose on the chin and cheeks, and light colors in the darkest areas, eye sockets etc. to help break up facial recognition at night

Women in the Infantry: A common sense analysis

I do realize that this is not related to apocalypse survival, but it does discuss combat, and it is a hotly debated subject in my line of work so I am going to post it. If you have any problems with this come to my ask box and talk to me like an adult.

how to survive falling through the ice - obviously some of the information provided here is humorous and/or non useful to the post apocalyptic survivor but take a look at it, also keep in mind that the undead do not need to breathe and as such can live in the water virtually uninhibited

Every time I go to the range I am astonished at peoples lack of firearms discipline

Seriously. if you intend to use a firearm for any purpose it should be an extension of your own arm, conventional wisdom states that somewhere between 3,000 and 5,000 repetitions is the point where muscle memory is achieved, in a life or death situation this is not recommended, it is necessary. 3k-5k times loading, reloading, dropping the magazine, pulling the trigger smoothly, every single action in the process of using a weapon should be repeated until you have achieved muscle memory.

the stately trench and its properties as a shelter

The trench: the trench is a versatile shelter that can be modified for any body type, about of gear, and type of soil or ground cover.it can be anywhere from just a shallow hole in the ground just big enough for ones body to a massive network. the cons of this style of shelter is that it can be hard to stay dry if dug wrong or can be nearly impossible to dig depending on the soil/ground cover and can leave you in a bit of a pickle if bandits/zombies run up on you essentially turning you into a tasty bit of pit bbq.
they should be constructed with just enough room for you and your gear and if you are traveling with more than one other person each trench should be limited to two occupants. they can be covered with a tarp of any sort or if on sturdy ground you can even park your vehicle over top of your trench to provide some camouflage and protection.
If we look at the military applications of trenches, it can be seen that extensive trench/tunnel networks provide protection and stealth as well as decent living quarters again the key is to keep the floor of your trench dry, this can be aided by digging sump trenches or lining the bottom with logs or boards to allow water to flow underneath.
If you guys have any questions about trenches and whatnot let me know
