Defense with the BoomStick

(Disclaimer: This post is set in a world where zombies have taken over and people live in small spots all over the world. It’s a weekly broadcast of news from around the globe and a tip to help survival.)

I never figured any day or week in this zombie world could be worst then the one before, but this past week and yesterday especially take the cake. It has been bad news day in and day out around the world in addition to the woes going on around this area. For us we've had zombies hitting us in droves for days, finally getting them cleared out this morning. It was not without great costs though as a number of people died in the fighting as well as the ammo and supplies lost during this siege. When the day finally comes with no more zombies I'm not sure what I would to celebrate that moment, but I hope it's a day I see.

Once again no good news to report about as I've still been hearing broadcasts go out requesting help with evacuations and in pushing back zombie attacks. On top of that a lot of places have stopped broadcasting completely meaning they have either fled, been rescued or been overrun by zombies. Most of the southeastern United States safe spots and peoples are the quietest. A lot of spots in the United Kingdom have also gone dark along with Portugal, Turkey and many more places; really hasn’t been a great few days anywhere. It might be a few weeks before all of this sorts itself out and we get a final tally on how many of us are actually left when are able to broadcast under better conditions. That’s all for the bad news, because now it’s time for the tip.

For the tip today it will be on how to make a plow for the front of a vehicle that can be useful to shove other cars and zombies out of your way. The easiest way to reach this goal is to find a snow plow truck somewhere, but you can't do that everywhere so here is how you can make one. The materials you'll need to collect are a car trunk lid and hoods from two cars and a mallet. Use the mallet to beat the metal into flatter pieces before attempting to combine it all together for the plow.

If you have access to welding equipment I suggest that method for combining the pieces as it's a lot stronger and can make the plow take more beatings. Another method to put the pieces together is to use bolts with ropes by binding the trunk lid to the hood in pairs of two in addition to using the mallet to work one end of each piece into a triangle hook so the two pieces can interlock. To attach all this to the vehicle to make the pieces form a big V without welding is to position them in the V shape and then attach ropes on the inside of the V to the car. So long as they stay tight and secure it will keep it in the right shape.

Until next week keep surviving.
