March 20, 2012 – 275 days Until Baktun 12

Survivalist Tip:  As I’ve stated previously, your home most likely will lose power when the apocalypse hits, so it would be good to have a generator on hand.  But, a generator may not function well; regardless, you’ll need to have some way to wash your clothes until things settle down.  It’s obvious you should have a stockpile of clean clothes as December 21st approaches.  But, if you just have to wash some clothes during the immediate aftermath, grab a metal wash tub and a washboard.  This may have hillbilly written all over it, but you should have noticed by now that hillbillies never complain about a lack of clean clothes!  It’s also not quantum physics – fill up the metal tub with water, stick the washboard in it and grab some soap.  You can hang up the clothes on a clothesline in your back yard, or balcony if you live in an apartment or condominium.  Of course, since it’ll be winter in the Northern Hemisphere when Baktun 12 starts, it’ll take a while for clothes to dry out; hence the additional clean clothes you should already have.  Remember, the ancient Mayans weren’t just highly intelligent and industrious; they also kept their deer-skin clothing very clean.
