    I have been looking in to a Frio case for when I go travelling and there is no cooling. So, if we are planning ahead for loss of fridges I think I better get one. Maybe I should suggest they change their marketing to helping survive the zomies.

    That said if they end up anything like the zomies in 28 days later you would be burning off a lot of carbs just running away. Not like the working dead where a swift walk should do it :)

    You'd need a frio rucksack.

    Personally I'm going for a secure base and a PV set up, and hoarding diesel.

    I'll need some fat tyres for my Discovery though.

    I'd rather die in a coma than get bitten by a zombie to turn into one

    I always think about this! And also if I was stranded on an island lost/castaway/Lord of the flies style!
