Take to the trees!

Last weekend we explored the idea of climbing up trees to evade the zombie hoards.
As with any climbing or height based survival there will be pros and cons to keeping above the ground when any trouble starts.
We used a recent trip to GO APE! to test out our skills and our fitness. It was fun but really worked the upper body muscles. Luckily Holly's Bootcamp sessions paid off and my fitness held out long enough to traverse the three hour course. The best bits were how to get down in style....

... Here is the video of Holly's escape route test run!


We all used to climb trees as kids, and if you were really lucky your parents would let you build a tree house. As far fetched as living in the trees sounds, you can actually do OK up there.
The big problem for most people would be a fear of heights. If you fell you would be like falling fruit to the waiting zombies. Ropes and safety equipment are necessary, and obviously a roof or shelter would be required to keep you dry in any typical weather patterns. We could all learn a thing or two from the Kombai tree people.

Depending on your size of platform you could actually have a nice set up there. But you would need time to build and use high tension wires and cables to give yourself a proper home from home.

Now this is a tree house!!!!

So living in the trees may seem far fetched to some, but to others it would make a nice solution to your zombie infestation. Remember to work on those upper body training techniques just to be on the safe side!

  1. I'd love to visit Go Ape! I've passed it a few times and really wanted to take a shot.

    I think taking to the trees would be a good idea. Zombies aren't known for their climbing skills, and being in a densely forested area means that you're away from urban centres and away from the majority of zombies.
