What do you need for a Zombie Apocalypse?

Now that zombie season is upon us (meaning it's almost Halloween and The Walking Dead is back on), it's probably the best time to talk about what must-haves should be in your ZA kit. Thankfully, Landra Graf's got your back.

Here's what you need:

1- Machete
Why? You'll need to chop off heads.
2- Gasoline
Why? This serves a multitude of purposes, from escaping towns to preventing zombies from getting to certain places. There's also the possibility of char-broiling a zombie when needed.
3- Guns and Ammo
Why? Pretty obvious, but you need something that packs a punch to get rid of the zombie hordes. Not every single zombie will come at you one at a time. I highly recommend multiple guns and clicks for quick reloads. Also do a double tap head shot, anything else is a waste of ammo.
4- Full body armor
Why? My personal preference is everything kevlar. I want a full body suit made of the stuff or chain mail. No zombies biting me through clothes. I'd be protected all the time and ready for action. I suggest the same for anyone else wanting to get through the gobs of fleshing loving folks.
5- Lighters

Why? Yes, you'll need a lot of them. For the gasoline and lighting candles when or if the power goes out. Torching fields and all manner of things. Stock up at the nearest store and hit every gas station in the house.

Zombies don’t belong in fairy tales….at least not those with a good chance of a happily ever after…
Jason Prince, Charming's once-upon-a-time star jock, only attends his Charming high school reunion to find his way into the heart of a certain wallflower who had no date for the prom.
Shy, geeky, chemical engineer, Emma Fay has been keeping her love for Jason a secret because she knows Jason and Rose belong together. But, when Rose Briar pricks her finger, fulfilling a prophecy about death and a plague, she throws a wrench into the class reunion that not even the best planning committee can tackle.
Can Jason and Emma stop Zombie Beauty Rose before she turns their loved ones into her undead court and sends them forth to spread the infestation to the rest of the world? Or will human flesh become the daily special at diners everywhere? And will there be enough left of Jason and Emma for romance to blossom?

The exclamation from one crowd member was followed up quickly by another. “That’s her.”
She looked again at the person she’d mistaken for her friend’s spirit, visible to everyone. The floodlight on the stage disappeared, and the lights in the gym came on. Between the rows stood her friend, eyes dark and bloodshot, skin pale. Em’s mouth parted, and she wanted to go to her but couldn’t move. You’re alive.
Sheriff Fowler and Dr. Mason moved from their chairs and began to approach Rose, arms outstretched in a tentative manner.
“Sweetie, it’s us. I’m going to come closer to help you.” Mason reached for her arm, and Emma’s sickly friend let out a guttural growl, launching herself at the sheriff.
Several screams filled the air, and Emma let out a gasp when the sound of torn flesh echoed over the cries. At that sound, the crowd jumped into action. Women and children ran for the door as Ewan, Dr. Mason, and a couple of other men she vaguely remembered grabbed for the wild woman gnawing on the sheriff’s shoulder. They pulled her off, and she thrashed about, fighting to free herself. However, with one man on each arm and another holding onto her legs, she couldn’t move.
“No! Let her go,” Em yelled, running for the stage stairs. Her legs moved faster than her two-inch-heeled feet did, and she almost tripped on the last step. She inhaled sharply, ready to charge, when a strong arm encircled her waist and pulled her back. The only other people left in the gym were a group of men slowly moving her friend toward the door. Ewan remained behind and helped Fowler to his feet.
“You need to release me. They’re hurting her.”
“We have to get out of here,” Jason said into her ear.
