what would you do in a pandemic?

If one of these nasty flu strains ended up spreading all over the world, what would you do, stick it out in town or stock up the car with supplies and hide out in the hills? Might be a pretty good excuse for an extended climbing holiday.. ;)

It depends on whether the virus turns infected people into flesh eating zombies.

I've always fancied being a flesh eating zombi, particularly if it means going head to head with Milla Jojovic.

I've been practicing my moaning for just this occasion.

It begs the question though, what happens if a vegan gets turned into a zombi? Does a zombi vegan have an unquenchable hunger for tofu? I can't picture it.

Wot, hang out at the Pines with a bunch of rag-tag international visitors with poor personal hygiene and limited fresh water?

Pandemics = less people = less climbers = more new routes = pandemics good

I certainly wouldn't hang around uni. That place is a breeding ground! Going bush is a good idea! maybe the gramps, plenty of space there, water, climbing.

As for zombies, i like bl@kes idea. Ozy would definitely have a tactical advantage when it comes to a shoot out!!

I'm really not that worried. I climb with a zombie most weekends.

He doesn't eat brains. He eats beers

Nono, you don't throw cams at zombies, you throw records at them. Electro for preference.

Hide out in the Barry Range, wait for the carnage to subside then basically raid everywhere for top equipment.

I'd take a copy of the omega man for reading
