What's the best camo when it comes to hiding from zombies? Quick answer is scenery. At first blush, you might wonder what the hell I'm talking about. But the truth of the matter is the zombies are looking for people shaped things to chew on. You ever see a zombie chew on a desk, or a simple cardboard box?
I'm not going to go into too much detail, but becoming part of the landscape saved John and I in Denver. It gave us precious seconds to get away and get ahead of the hordes.
If you need to move in zombie territory, make sure you don't smell like a human and hide your shape. Move slowly, and don't attract attention to yourself.
Word of caution, though. Don't put yourself into something you can't get out of quickly. If they do discover you you'd better not try to run down a street wearing a file cabinet, because you will get eaten.
