I want to throw out my feelings on 2012...If you look at the history of the world, there have always been major geological happinings that have pushed us to extinction, or extinquished other species altogether. Between Mega volcanic eruptions, to ice ages, all things considered, we (humanity) have been kinda lucky and have been able to surrvive. My feelings about 2012 are the same. I believe if something happens, it will wipe out most of humanity, but pockets will surrvive that will eventualy repopulate the earth.... Here's a scenario. Yellowstone blows...the ash being thrown in the atmosphere will block the sun for 6 months to a year. This is the critical time for those who have prepared themselves, by stocking up on food and supplies. This is where most people will die of starvation, due to the fact the worlds bread basket will have been completly anhilated, and we won't be able to grow food, so those who did not prepare will starve. A couple of things to remember though. You will need to get to the higher elevations (mountains). The death and disease will have polluted most of the lower lying area's. Water will be difficult to find, as will food. You'll need protection, you won't be able to trust anyone, especially if you have supplies that people my want. So, get yourself a fire arm, and prepare yourself to use it. There will be no law enforcement, it will be everyman for himself. Well, as we approach Dec. 21st 2012, we have a year to prepare. Will it happen? Who knows, but for me there are too many freaky things with the state of the world and the ancient predictions from way intelligent peoples from the past, not to try and be ready.....what say you?

Preparations is mostly a state if mind for me. There are basic survival gears, but too many variables on what kind of geological catastrophe could unfold to prepare for. If it happens, tbe strongest will survive.

Perhaps. As it turned out, their end of the world occurred. Had they saved some canned food the most prepared may have survived to tell....oh, nevermind!

I guess if I wanted to answer this more seriously, I'd ask whether it would be worth surviving. Nuclear fallout for example - it's gonna get'cha in the end...

I hear you...but whatever happens...all of the above will still apply...get out of the cities and suburbs...have as much food and water you can take with you...& be prepared to defend yourself..hopefully you won't need to do any of it..but if you are prepared & have a plan ..that is also strength that will help by some time

I'll head to the lake where we have a private well, 45 acres out back to grow stuff, and bears and rabbits and deers to hunt. Oh, and a lake full of fresh water and a forest for wood.

That's been our family survival plan every since we became a family. :)

Sounds lovely. What if the catastrophe involves a world wide nuclear fallout?

I've never tried irradiated venison but I suppose if I was hungry enough, I'd give it a go. :funny1:

Most backwoods gun totin' hillbillies will tell you that their guns are not for fighting off the commies but to defend themselves and what's thiers if in a time of widespread catastrophe (not their rolex but food/water, shelter, family)

Well, as a former and probably one day again backwoods gun totin' hillbilly, I can agree with that.

If you wanna join the survival clan, you can make a little house somewhere on the back-45 and help us farm it - the meadows have pretty much on their way back to being woodlands so we will have to clear some saplings. :)

Joining forces is the best way to survive imoho.

Then I am hoping to be one of the deceased - seriously, I don't think I'd want to experience the long slow decline of being poisoned by nuclear fallout.

"The Day After" scarred me for life. :undecided:
