End of Days Road Rules

Surviving post-apocalyptic roadways is a breeze when various considerations are taken into account. First, choosing a post-apocalyptic automobile is easy. Almost everybody on the planet is gone. There are plenty of models to choose from. All wheel drive is great for rugged, crater-pocked landscapes. Giant sport utility vehicles are spacious for families that are travelling together. Gas efficiency should be a concern if supplies are limited.

Country Roads

Main highways can be jammed with looters and zombies during an apocalypse. It may be beneficial to stick to lesser-travelled, country roads. Main highways are often a great place for post-apocalyptic fiends to set traps. Country roads can be dangerous too, so drivers should always stay vigilant.


Learning how to siphon fuel is essential for apocalyptic, roadway survival. One will need a few empty gas cans and a hose. First, one must find an abandoned vehicle with fuel. One end of the hose should be stuck in the tank. To get the gas flowing, one must first suck on the hose. It will taste disgusting. It is important to spit out any fuel that gets into one’s mouth. The gas will flow until the tank is empty. The flowing end can fill up empty gas cans, or it can go directly into the empty tank.

The advantages of Dirt Bikes

Dirt bikes are a great choice for post-apocalyptic, survival vehicles. They are hardy, gas-efficient and perfect for jumping hordes of zombies. This is a great vehicle for a loner. Families with small children would find dirt bikes impractical. Dirt bikes are incredibly maneuverable. They are the perfect machines for navigating post-apocalyptic wastelands. Gear must be kept to a minimum. Packing light is the key to surviving the end of days. Not being weighed down is imperative for survival.

Reinforcing the Rolling Fortress

Dirt bikes can be outfitted with rugged tires and small weapons. Larger cars can be reinforced with armor. Scrap metal can be found just about anywhere during the end of days. Doors and windows can be reinforced for greater safety. The automobile can become a rolling fortress.

Emergency Kits

Emergency kits are absolutely vital for surviving apocalyptic, roadway conditions. Emergency kits for people on dirt bikes should be small. Fitting emergency supplies into a small pouch on a backpack is necessary. Cars can have larger emergency kits that include spare tires, water, tools, extra fuses and any parts that may commonly break.
