April 7, 2012 – 257 days Until Baktun 12

Survivalist Tip:  Whether you plan to stay in your home during the apocalypse, or flee somewhere you think is safe, you need to have an all-encompassing tool box among your supplies.  A good one is made from aluminum or steel.  It’s not easily damaged if you drop it, or smack some idiot upside the head with it.  A complete tool box features the usual items: 

  • hammer
  • screwdriver
  • tape measure
  • pliers
  • duct tape
  • black electrician’s tape
  • wire cutters
  • markers
  • assorted nails
  • assorted screws
  • various size batteries 

But, it also should contain:

  • drill (battery-operated)
  • blue painter’s tape
  • flashlight
  • wrench
  • work gloves
  • safety goggles
  • hacksaw
  • utility knife
  • vice grips
  • chisel
  • staple gun
  • small wrecking bar
  • chocolate
  • antacids

 Whether you have mechanical difficulties with your vehicle, need to build an impromptu outdoor shelter, make a quick home repair, or give your bratty kids something to hold onto to stop them from being so bratty, a well-stocked tool box will help you get through the initial chaos at the start of the next Baktun.  The ancient Mayans always kept their tools organized and in one place.  What else do you think explains why their temples have survived for the past 2,000 years, while your cable keeps going out?
