Where is the best place in Wilmington to ride out a zombie outbreak?

More than 50 people participated in the third annual Wilmington Zombie Walk on Oct. 23, 2010, in downtown Wilmington. (StarNews file photo)

Reader Andy H. asked, “Where is the best place in Wilmington to ride out a zombie outbreak?”

Most StarNews employees would probably choose to ride it out here at work. The building is a bunker – no windows!

Where would you ride out a zombie outbreak? Why?

    If we have to stay in the area, our best bet will be to head for the battleship. The alligator(s?) at the base can also help with the occasional stray zombie, but once we’ve removed the ramps, they won’t be able to get on board. It’s on the water, so with a smaller boat will we can get into the city for supplies. We’ll use bikes in town, small, reliable, no need for gas. As with any good zombie outbreak, soon dealing with other survivors will become the problem…

    Ideally, I’m heading somewhere in the country and digging the deepest moat around “my” farm as is possible.

    I would head to Wrightsville Beach, blow the bridge, and try to make the island a safe zone.

    The Barbary Coast bar of course. With a few shots of Crown and PBR’s all around,the zombies won’t stand a chance!

    I would chose the Battleship as it could be locked down easily enough

    Tatically speaking, Wilmington wouldn’t fare too well. People are creatures of habit and with it’s poor road planning it would be a nightmare to try to safely get out. One wreck on the bridge and traffic jams up all over town. This is with no zombie attack. So durning a zombie outbreak consider the 2 bridges out of the question. One would probably want to head into any number of docks and marinas around here and get on a boat and head out on Masonboro Island for a short time. You would need enough time to plan out how to get food, gas and supplies. The sea could sustain you for awhile foodwise. The roads HWY 421, I-40, HWY 74/76, HWY 17, you would have to consider impassible due to the stranded vehicles and potential hazards for encountering the infected. The more populated the area, the more dangerous. Stick to back roads and get out into an area with lower population.

    I recommend coming to my house…. just bring some ammo, 9mm, 45, 12 guage mag, AK47 and .270 Silvertip rounds. That should cover it, from close range out to about 200 – 300 yards easily….

    Seriously people? The battleship would be my 3rd choice. It’s a nice safe place, but doesn’t have much for resources. Put me in Walmart. They have plenty of fresh water, food, ways to cook food, camping gear, transportation (bikes and scooter), easy access to ways to block everyone else out, a security system with camera, and most importantly GUNS AND AMMO!
