Survivalist Tip:  Whether you plan to stay in your home when the apocalypse arrives, or flee to safety, you need to have a well-stocked tool box among your supplies.  The best ones are made from aluminum or steel and therefore, not easily damaged if you drop it, or use it as a defense weapon.

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, or make a quick home repair, 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 concentrated.  Why else do you think their temples have survived for over 2,000 years, while you have to buy a new cell phone every year?
