    Speaking of Max Brooks, The remote Island idea won't work, if anyone here read his book: 'World War Z' they'll know that zombies crawl on the ocean floor, and though it may take a while for them to get there, you'll have your island swarmed in the end.

    Or maybe those with the remote island idea hope the zombies will decay to immobilization by the time the reach the island. :p

    As for survivors, I see no other way to find them but leave signs to meet regularly at a certain place (like in I Am Legend), or the occasional encounter when search parties go looking for resources/ammo/ration.

    So while thinking what *not* to do, I'd say:

    • Bad hiding places:

    1. Shopping malls can be a dangerous hiding place because there are too many entrances to guard.
    2. Basements, houses and garages are no escape zones.
    3. A car to which you don't have the keys.
    4. Any building that offers a way in and no way out.
    5. Elevators. Remember there are reasons they say to avoid elevators in an emergency. Consider Zombies one of those reasons.

    Once you have a secure hiding place, reinforce it against attack and regularly maintain the reinforcements.
