Basic Zombie Survival Kit

A Listmania! list by Amazon Customer "Hitman Monkey"
The list author says: "Plenty of these out there. I'm bored and figured I would throw in my two cents. Some of these items are intended to represent a general type of item (ie multitools - leatherman, gerber...pick your favorite).
Also, I would recommend trying a few things that you can't just buy online. Try making pemmican - amazing long-burning fuel for a body on the go. I also think it goes without saying that if you have things that need batteries, bring extra, or get rechargable and a solar charger that can meet your needs.
I'm going to leave out firearms - if you are a gun person, you probably already have your picks and reasons for them. If you are not a gun person, start learning now or plan on doing without.
Also for this kit you will want good, broken in shoes/boots, extra clothes (at least one change of socks, underwear, and tshirt), sunglasses, a hat to keep the sun off, and a compact hygeine kit with soap, toothbrush & paste, a camp towel, nail clippers, small scissors, comb, etc. I would also highly recommend sunblock, insect repellent and a no-see-um net for your head.
If you have room and are willing to carry the weight, throw in a few lickies and chewies, booze and smokes (useful for trading) or a favorite book."
