I've been trying to figure out how San Francisco, where I live, would fare in a zombie invasion. There are a lot of hills. If you're at the top of one, the zombies could approach from all sides and you'd be stuck. Then again, zombies move slowly, and if I were at the top of a really steep hill, I bet they'd move really slowly. So if I were up there with a big gun and a few thousand rounds of ammunition, I like my chances. Can zombies swim? Maybe Alcatraz would be a good place to hide out. To assess a city's change, I really need more insight into zombie behavior and physiology.

Re: all cites are a bad idea for the zombie apocolypse
@kstaron- Probably true. But i think starting in the rural area might mean you find out about it later than everyone else. I think you might find out about it when the city looters start heading your way. Maybe you need some sort of suburban enclave near a rural area?

Re: My locale
@whoopty- An old castle? i love it. See, that's what i mean by cinematic. The church works for that, too.

The only problem I see with that is I suspect a lot of people will run to the church and the castle. You have to be there first or you have to convince people to team up. You might want to move to the castle now.
