    If I were trapped in a zombie apocalypse, I would jump straight in a car and drive to the nearest skyscraper I could find. I’d work my way up to the roof and then hide out there with supplies, shelter and protection. I’d hope that the zombies would not be able to work their way all the way to the roof, especially if it was barricaded but if they did somehow, then i’d hopefully be able to easily fight them off by using weapons or by getting them to fall off the roof. If all hope was lost, i’d then be able to end it all quickly by jumping off myself. A little bit morbid, but hey ho! #StayAlive

    I would survive by thinking vertically. Zombies move horizontally, so I would survive by moving vertically, like a squirrel climbing a tree or an ant walking up a wall.
    I would travel to a low-population area where there is flowing water (i.e. a river)and forestry (tall trees).
    I would build tree houses in which to sleep (remember that old Disney movie ‘Swiss Family Robinson?’). This kind of woodland would be ideal for gardening. Seeds for farming would be easy to come by, as all the grocery stores would be abandoned and looted for food, but certainly there would be plenty of rotting produce left behind, sitting on the shelves, slowly decomposing. Even if the fruits and vegetables are rotten, their seeds should still be fertile.
    With the flowing water to drink, animals to hunt, and vegetables to harvest, I believe that I could survive up in the trees.
    Certainly, I would attempt to fortify the territory over time, a few square-acres or so, creating deterrents, or walls–chopped-down trees, rubble, etc–to keep the zombies out, with the river serving as one wall. Also, further tree houses would be built, outposts and whatnot, securing a safe haven in the event of being attacked anywhere within the compound. Each outpost would be stocked with a bottle of water, a can of food, and a long spear to stab zombies in the head from up in the tree, should one become trapped.
    Being in America, in Illinois, along the Mississippi River would be the location I would go to. Where is the nearest river to you?
