"Geocacher’s Guide to Surviving a Zombie Outbreak"

Even though this Latitude 47 blog post is more of a promotion to sell geocaching gifts and gear, you have to give them props for their clever way to grab people's attention. For instance, the link labeled "13 essentials to survive a zombie outbreak", which takes you to's holiday gift shop.

I have to admit that I have also been caught up with the current Zombie phenomenon sweaping the world. The Walking Dead, 28 Days Later, and Resident Evil are a few of my favorites!

Why are Zombies so popular today? It may be due to the economic hardships we have been dealing with in recent years. Zombies could symbolize the feelings we have of helplessness and hopelessness in our societies. Either that or we simply enjoy the gore and excitement of watching characters like Rick Grimes of The Walking Dead and other regular folk much like ourselves, slashing zombies heads with a machete, axe, etc.

Zombies or not, it's always good to be prepared!
