She thought I was a pretentious jerk because in order to get her to let me take it with me I had to tell her how much it was. Umbrellas get stolen too often for me to care about how snobby I appeared.

I tend to leave places that insist I let my umbrella copulate with all the other umbrellas at the door.

There is never an axe far from my hands in my apt or car.

I read WW:Z recently; that combined with Sandy made me realize how fucked every borough and Long Island would be in some kind of epidemic or attack.

Yep. All kidding aside maybe something like this isn't such a bad idea. 

 

 

The bridges and tunnels will be a blood bath if the government even allows you to get off. The kayak allows me to slip quietly across the river or head upstream to Canada.

Lol, good luck paddling to Canada. Ain't no trip down the Lazy River.

^^^ yes, canada is upstream, but if you catch an incoming tide it will help get you clear of the tidal estuary w/o too much trouble

Since I passed the Pierre Burton national identifier at the age of 15, I'm sure I'll be fine. I'll paddle my way to safety like Charles Bronson in The Great Escape.

 

Though I could make a stand in my place. I have ample food below in the grocery store and a roof with line of sight south to the Empire State, west to St John the Divine and east to Laguardia.

That's not a bad setup. But I expect you'd eventually be overrun by marauders/scavengers. Might be better off fleeing in the kayak to an empty house out in cow country. Maybe the Adirondacks/Catskills, but it would be tough to survive a winter there unnoticed...you'd have to keep the woodstove going all day and night. And food would get scarce pretty quickly.

Didn't realize until now that the zombie apocalypse is a reason NY sucks.

Ultimately, it's escape for us, but it might be wise to hole up for a few days and let the idiots kill a good number of each other off. Kind of like the cornucopia in The Hunger Games. Of course, that means the survivors will be tougher and have gotten over the natural aversion to hand-to-hand killing.

 

I could berserker my way out on Day 1. The leftette is pretty damn handy with an axe and I'm sure we could make it to the river. But the problem with that is by the time you realize it's happening, Day 1 was three weeks earlier and it's too late to do anything about it.

 

I should probably just move. I hear San Francisco is nice.

nah move to a cave make you're self sustainable, buy all the weapons and food you can think of, then just sit there sounds like a better solution...

You're probably better off wearing a cyanide capsule on a chain. Don't kid yourself - your raft won't save you from a terrorist attack or a real life 28 days later bio-zombie outbreak. One of the most underrated things about living on the west coast is that every morning when I wake up I know the world is not ending today because if it were, it would have already happened in the eastern time zone.
