Survivalist Tip: As I’ve stated constantly throughout these posts, there’s a strong likelihood the Earth’s magnetic fields will reverse on or immediately after December 21st. This will be a good thing in some ways; mainly that utility companies will go off-line and anyone stalking you will become confused and lost. You won’t, though, if you get a compass. This will be especially helpful if you decide to head out on foot, or even if you have to evacuate your home. Either way it’s an essential tool – particularly for finding water and chocolate amidst the chaos.
