Mountaineering. It's mind boggling to me how rarely they opt to go vertical, considering the zombies' inability to navigate anything more complex than flat ground.

There's so much they could do right in the middle of Atlanta if they were willing to demolish the first few floors of a couple high rise buildings to completely eliminate the possibility of zombie access and instead use climbing systems to create new human only entrances.

I'd also go for wilderness survival, since I'm better at it than Daryl, though I'm sure they intentionally dumb it down a bit in order to make it more reasonable to the average person Tongue Nonetheless, I'll let him keep the monopoly on that one.

Thank you! My brother and I have been saying the same thing. So many seem surprised by this obvious tactic.

RE: The Walking Dead!!!!
Just caught up on episodes but I have to admit i was shocked when they took out Glenn a fan favorite. I have thought of the two possible scenarios. The most likely being he's ok. When they fell off you say the body of the nitwit fall on top of him. It's a good chance he was just reacting to the horror that was happening before him.

Or two the more realistic scenario the zombies ate threw the corpse and got to him. Surrounded by hundreds of zombies one of them had to go for his jucie brain. Plus they love killing off key characters. it was bound to happen eventually. Ether him or Darrel. And no one wants to see Darrel go.

In the comics Rick and Carol go out alone for a time. He's also at this point missing a hand in the comics as well as Carol having half his head blown off.

Yeah, I'm wondering if Rick is going to lose his hand because he got cut pretty bad and as you mention, it is in the comics. But they don't always stick to the comics in the series. It will be interesting to see how all that plays out.

I bake a mean cookie too. Brain cookies. I'd be friend to all zombies.

My cookies never come out very good. They're lovingly called "rocks" by my family and friends Big Grin If I baked cookies we could chuck them at the zombies heads and run away. Tongue

That's a good point. Boonies would definitely be the best way to go to avoid both people and walkers if you know how to survive off the land. I like the idea of the high rise--they could do a lot of cool stuff with that idea on the show.

So instead of a potential TTA meet up in Vegas or Death Valley, you are taking us all to Washington? Big Grin
