Finding a new place to live in the world of Zombies is always a hard decision. The threat of Zombies, Raiders, wild animals and the foul living conditions. This is why no place is truly safe, only safer.
When you are securing a new place to live and preparing it for the long-term is very important to survive for a longer time. This will make you feel more safe, you will be familiar with the area and could be very safe. However, it could also be very dangerous as you might become sloppy regarding safety and can quickly lead to being wounded or even death.
You also have to know when it is time to go. Zombies might get through a fence, the water spoils, there is no more game, the plants are not growing, or a building slowly crumbles away. It is time to go. When this time comes, you should already have investigated the area for a new place. A plan B. If there is nothing close-by, then pick up only the stuff that you really need to survive for a few days out in the wild. Always be prepared to move. Have a bug-out-bag ready and multiple plans to get out. This will be your savior when the time comes.
If you can’t find shelter for the night, find a tree and tie yourself down like Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games.
