Army, Marine, or even Air Force bases should be your top priority when searching for a fortress. Many are located in sparsely populated and therefore less infested areas. they have elaborate security fences around their perimeters. Some have secondary, even tertiary defensive positions. Most are equipped with fully stocked, fully functional fallout shelters, some with the capabilities of a small city. Because they have multiple means of communication, they will be the last of all global facilities to lose contact with one another. What is the most important is no the physical fortifications but the people within them. Well-trained, well-armed, well-disciplined people are always the best defense.

Little is known about the altered taste buds of the walking dead. Zombies do have the ability to tell human flesh apart from that of animals, and they prefer the former. Ghouls also have a remarkable ability to reject carrion in favor of freshly killed meat. A human body that has been dead longer than twelve to eighteen hours will be rejected as food. The same goes for cadavers that have been embalmed or otherwise preserved. As to exactly why human flesh is preferable, science has yet to find an answer to this confounding, frustrating, terrifying question.
Voodoo zombies exhibit thought. When a real zombie encounters you it will immediately home in like a smart bomb. A voodoo zombie will take a moment to try to figure out who or what you are. Maybe it will come toward you, maybe it will recoil, maybe it will continue its observation as its damaged brain attempts to analyze the information given it. What a voodoo zombie not do is raise its arms, drop its jaw, unleash a hellish moan, and stumble directly toward you.
A zombie--bloated, waterlogged, with skin completely dissolved--washed ashore on the coast of the island. The zombie began to pursue its onlookers. The crowd continued to retreat from the approaching ghoul. The police fired two rounds into its chest, producing no effect. A six-year-old boy, not realizing the danger, ran up to the zombie and began to poke it with a stick. The zombie grabbed the child and tried to raise it to its mouth. Two officers rushed forward and attempted to wrestle the child from the zombie's grip. At that moment, Jeremiah Dewitt stepped out of the crowd and fired a round through the zombie's head. Amazingly, no human was infected by the ghoul.
