Considering staying on the surface doesn’t really work for the achievement (mostly because the groups of cannibals running around the map might glitch through the map and die, having the game register you’ve actually killed them), I’ve found the best strategy to bypass the problem is by spending the 10 days required for the achievement inside a cave.
Best one is Cave 6 (aka Lawyer Cave, the one next to the cargo containers, West of the Sinkhole), since it provides you a tent where you can Sleep and Save, 3 bottles of alcohol (to refill your thirst meter) and 3 snacks (to refill your hunger meter) near to where the tent is.
Just go inside, wait for the sky to go dark, Sleep, refill your Hunger and Thirst meters and go back towards the entrace to see when the sun will go down again, then repeat.
Your character should go near dehidration and starvation every day, but since you go to sleep, he won’t actually die or take damage and you’ll just have to pop the snacks and alcohol to have him back to max.
If you run out of drinks+snacks, just exit to the Main Menu and load the last save to reload the consumables inside the cave.
After that, it’s just a matter of waiting for 10 days to pass (which is actually the most boring part of this achievement).
