Zombie preparedness.

Its creators intend it to be a shopping list for Burning Man. Fine, whatever. Anyway, below is what the survival team will need. Ignore most of what's listed in the "Suggested Gifts" column on the website.

Tents
tarps
cots, folding chairs
blankets, sleeping pad, inflatable mattress and pump
cooking equipment (little burners, pots, utensils - reusable ones so don't have to deal with trash)
MREs (meals ready to eat)
water
canteens (again, no trash)
reusable coffee cup with lid
camelback
Leatherman / swiss army knife
collapsable shovel
compass
whistle
flashlight and batteries
headlamp
parachutes (to help shade you from sun)
backpacks
duffle bags
small shoulder bags with straps
pouches to attach to belt
bike
First Aid Kit
lip balm
sunscreen
dust mask (for bad dust storms)
gas mask
goggles/ sunglasses
bandannas
umbrella
towels
shorts
cargo pants B DUS(lots of pockets)
t shirts
sweatshirts
scrubs (light and comfortable)
skirts
bathing suits
tank tops
hat
mosquito net vests
"booty camp" shorts
socks
hiking boots/extra laces
sandals
flip flops
sneakers

We roll out at daybreak. No straggling. Mercy kills cheerfully provided.

Meals Ready to Eat are a great item for your trip. Plenty of calories there. As far as zombies? If you have the military MREs, you could use the hot sauce and heater to make a bomb.

I have to ask... WTF are "'booty camp' shorts"?

I highly recommend getting some safety goggles as well. The dust can get pretty fucking crazy at times.

H: You're not going to believe this, but they are camouflage-pattern shorts for women with "Booty Camp" embroidered on the waistband. I am not making this up.

H: I've heard about the nastiness of some MREs. You sure that's dead?
