Go to yourzombieplan.com and avoid all the places those walking bags of zombie chow will be going. Looting wal-mart? Yes just go to a place that was full of people when the outbreak happened, has multiple large glass doors, and is now full of zombies. Avoid populated areas. People in large groups=zombies in large groups.
Loot a gun store? Yes because if the gun store owner isn't there with his guns, surely there will be something left when everyone else had the same idea. If you don't own or work at a gun store, don't go to a gun store.
Steal a hummer, go pick up all your friends, and head for the arctic? Surely because that hummer has the mileage to make it that far, when no pumps work, and can manuever through stalled and halted traffic, and you must certainly happen to have extreme wilderness survival skills. Travel light, pick a practical BoV, have a BoL in mind, know what is where you're going.
Steal a boat and head for an island. And how do you plan to operate that boat with no maritime or navigation experience? Not to mention, boat OWNERS probably took their boats out to open water already, and anyone else with mariner experience likely took any remaining watercraft long before you'll ever reach the marina.
Become a zombie slaying badass. If the outbreak is still small enough to be contained by sweeping and exterminating, leave it to the military and police, unless you legitimately have firearms and survival skills to volunteer, then ask to be deputized and do it as part of an organized team. Otherwise get out of the way.
My strategy? Be prepared in the first place. I live in a rural area where bugging in will be practical for a small outbreak assuming it at least starts in urban areas. The population is sparse enough that bugging in would be reasonable. Bugging out would involve going not too very far to reach even more isolated areas. Being surrounded by rivers and creeks makes zombie incursions from the city difficult. I keep some food on hand, and for the long term garden and hunt to produce my own food. I'm working on stockpiling enough ammunition to defend my home from occasional incursion, and organizing the few neighbors (also armed) in the area to keep a watch out for roamers would be fairly simple. It helps that I'm kind of a pudgy fellow. For long distance travel, not so great, but for concerving resources and fortifying, it means I can stretch my food supply further by eating less than the bare minimum calorie intake each day and make up the remains from my erm...on board reserves. Or if I need to bug out, I have an on board energy supply to stave of starvation a good bit longer as long as water is available.
Short term I'd stay put. Long term, head for areas of even sparser population. Less people means less zombies. You probably don't even need to find a total wilderness. Any place where bullets outnumber zombies should be enough to turn the tide in human favor. That is assuming zombie groups lurk rather than hunt. If zombies actively hunt in large hoards for human populations, then it genuinely be worthwhile to find a place where zombies legitimately couldn't survive. That leaves islands (impractical as stated earlier without marine experience), Steep mountains (Useful as long as you can climb and zombies can't, and you can sustain yourself there), cold climates (assuming you can get there, and survive), or a fortified position such as a military base, or prison, but that's assuming the existing occupants are welcoming. If zombies can't get in, you're probably not going to be able to either.
