I’ve always been too busy making a mess in my garage to be a good prepper, but after learning that the main plotline for the 2007 blockbuster I Am Legend is that a virus based vaccine has caused the world’s population to die or turn into mutant vampire-zombies…I’m thinking maybe I might need a good low-key bug-out vehicle. If I had a Pinzgauer, Laplander, or a 4X4 Quigley van, people are going to try and join me in an escape from the zombies, but if I had an Isuzu Trooper with rear seat delete and a hidden camper setup…that’d be stealthy and apocalypse ready.
