The 12-21-12 Mayan Calendar Event. What Could Happen and How To Survive

Source

Plan Ahead or Party Hearty?

Do I believe anything will happen on this auspicious date? Not really, but who knows? Those ancient Mayan astronomers were pretty good at their jobs, so who knows what will go down on the long awaited date?

However, there actually are few scenarios we may take a look at and decide for ourselves. Plus, a few tips to be in the right place at the time couldn’t hurt either. There have been several mass extinctions of the human race over the course of our existence, but fortunately for us, a few survivors managed to perpetuate our species despite these ancient catastrophes.

This article is intended to examine a few realistic possibilities of disastrous events which could change our lives from the present easy sailing to trying to survive a national or worldwide disaster. Otherwise, you may want to prepare for your 12-21-12 end of the world party by not waiting till the last minute to make out the guest list.

What the Mayan's Actually Said!

Did the Mayans actually predict a calamitous event to happen on 12-21-12? Well not really, but their calendar ends on that date, or at least, this was the last day they actually listed on the stone chart.

I suppose it could merely be the calendar guy got tired or got another job which paid better. Or perhaps the Mayans may have suffered some political troubles and had to downsize or some such thing. But what if the date really did mean something significant.

As stated earlier, the Mayan astronomers were very good at charting the skies. Being able to chart the orbit of Venus for 500 years within a few minutes of its actual path--and doing this without a telescope or computer to help them-- is nothing to scoff at. So there is a chance they knew something we do not about a returning comet or asteroid impacting or disrupting our beautiful planet.

Besides, we are overdue for some sort of celestial impact as we average a major strike every 100 years or so. The last such impact was at Tunguska Siberia in 1909 when a suspected comet exploded several miles above the earth leveling the forests for a hundred square miles or more.

Fortunately, the area was largely uninhabited and the loss of life was limited to whatever wild animals lived in the forests beneath the exploding comet or asteroid. But this doesn’t mean we will always be that lucky as now humans are much more scattered across the surface of the earth and thus more susceptible to such a catastrophic impact or explosion.

If you're lucky enough to have access to a nice secluded cave like this, then you are already ahead of the game!

Preparing For The Worst.

So how does one prepare for such an event? There is no surefire answer to this question but one can increase their odds by using a little common sense. An underground bunker or cave would be the best place to be, of course, but even this has its drawbacks unless the location is right. Since a large asteroid impact in the ocean could cause gigantic tidal waves it is preferable for the site to be quite distant from any ocean which might spawn such a surge of water.

And don’t forget the aftermath of the cataclysm, because just such an event caused the extinction of the dinosaurs over 65 million years ago. This is similar to what scientists claim would happen in a nuclear winter.

The skies would be dark for a long period of time, perhaps even years, due to the tons of dirt and debris ejected into the atmosphere when the object impacts the earth. Better stock up on some good survival foods and supplies in your cave, and be prepared to eat sparingly for a while.

Increased Solar Flare Activity?

Another possibility is a particularly strong solar flare which could disrupt our modern communications to the point of causing major food shortages and crop failures. Since the Mayans studied the sky for so long, they obviously picked up a few patterns concerning solar flares.

And according to scientists, solar flare activity is expected to pick up in 2012. Whether it will do so to the extent of creating massive problems for us is another matter entirely. Solar flare activity normally peaks and falls as a matter of course. Preparing for this scenario is a bit tricky though.

Flares may disrupt long range radio communications. The 11 year solar cycle of the sun may determine the peaks of solar flare activity and intensity. Such flares may cause radiation hazards to spacecraft and any astronauts or cosmonauts in outer space during massive solar flares.

Other dangers : radiation exposure and communication disruption. The Carrington Event which occurred in 1859--this was the most powerful solar flare recorded to date, and the first to be noticed by scientists--was so powerful it actually caused some telegraph systems to catch fire.

Magnetic pole reversal--Though not considered a real threat, increased volcanic activity, possible radiation increase caused by disruption of the atmosphere which normally protects us from such radiation, and increased volcanic activity could affect living creatures due to large amounts of ash being ejected into the atmosphere and creating a “nuclear winter” effect.

Sign Of The Times?

Earthquakes And Tsunamis

Earthquakes happen all of the time somewhere on earth, but there are some things which may increase the activity of both earthquakes and tsunamis as 2012 winds itself down. Volcanic activity can cause both of these disastrous events as eruptions displace both solid and liquid material in different ways.

An undersea eruption, or in the worst case scenario, an explosion of a volcano, could trigger both earthquakes and tsunamis large enough to cause devastating results to any land masses in the vicinity and for quite a distance away from the eruption itself.

Other things which may cause either of the two mentioned disasters are close encounters with other heavenly bodies as well as undersea plates shifting in a large degree.

Normally the damage is done in a localized area which would not be considered a global cataclysm such as is being discussed here. Nonetheless, survival tips will be discussed which take these two events into account.

Global Warming Consequences?

Although the effects of global warming are considered to be relatively slow in terms of years, it is possible for things to accelerate on a much faster pace than you might imagine.

Recently, there have been rivers discovered running beneath some of the worlds largest glaciers as the ice begins to melt ever faster and the runoff, in turn, erodes and melts the surrounding ice, creating a snowball effect.

All of this fresh water being dumped into the oceans also tends to create other problems such as rising ocean levels and affecting both the salinity of the oceans and the marine life in them.

A recent satellite image over one of the poles show a huge crack in the ice which, when this huge section of ice breaks free from the pack, will be larger than Rhode island. Summer home anyone?

But this is just a thought and probably nothing to fear in the year 2012. You may want to keep future developments in mind though, because global warming is a definite future catastrophe in waiting. We’ll have to deal with it sometime before long.

So How Do I Survive 12-21- 12?

Since we have no way of knowing exactly what the nature of the Dec.-21-2012 cataclysm may be, we must try and decide what steps to take which will encompass most of these scenarios. There are some things you can do to increase your odds of survival if and when one of these events occur.

But even if nothing at all happens, these survival tips will still apply for other possible disasters as they suggest common sense advice for many different emergency situations. The same goes for the survival supplies and tools as they too may be considered necessities in times of emergency.

Emergency Food Supplies

The Importance Of A Sanctuary

Perhaps the most important of tips concerning any possible world wide disaster is where to be or go to in such an event. It’s no secret city dwellers will be more at risk than those living in more isolated areas. Merely escaping from a large urban area may be the hardest part of seeking safety and sanctuary from any disaster. Just as is depicted in many sci-fi movies, roads and bridges leading from large cities will more than likely be jammed by wrecked and/or stalled vehicles. It only takes a couple of cars or trucks to block a tunnel or bridge.

In the case of the 12-21-12 scenario, it would be best to already be in your chosen area of sanctuary before the date arrives. Somewhere far inland and away from well known tourist spots is the ideal choice. Being already supplied with the best survival tools and plenty of food is a given. Be sure to check out the spot well beforehand, and if possible, store a cache of gasoline and other needed supplies in case you don’t have time to gather them when leaving the city.

Make sure there is a source of clean water near your sanctuary or else stash some beforehand. If you are really serious about surviving the even then it may be advisable to rent or lease an isolated farmhouse or other such dwelling to ride out the disastrous event. Try to already be there a couple of days ahead of time to avoid traffic jams and gas shortages. A well stocked cupboard is recommended as food may always be used later on if no disaster occurs.

Emergency Electrical Supply Items

All Power America APG3004, 800 Running Watts/1000 Starting Watts, Gas Powered Portable Generator
All Power America APG3004, 800 Running Watts/1000 Starting Watts, Gas Powered Portable Generator

A small, easy to carry and powerful generator at an extremely low cost. I have one of these and it works great, not only for emergency use but for other outdoor power needs.

 

Survival's The Thing!

Since there would be electrical outages in most of the suggested scenarios a good generator is a must. Along with an emergency power supply there is also a need for adequate communication with the outside world. You cannot depend on cell phones if some of the disasters above occur.

A good CB or shortwave radio is recommended, as well as, a hand cranked weather/ emergency radio in case the generator fails or gas is in short supply. These weather radios are relatively inexpensive, and they are good for any other emergency situations as well.

Other means of emergency power are solar cells, small wind turbines, and/or generators. The beauty of the first two items is the lack of fuel needed for their operation, not to mention the added benefit of quiet operation. Because who needs noise which may alert others as to your position.

This may be extremely important as disasters tend to bring out the worst in folks because desperation often causes people to act differently than under normal conditions. Weapons for the protection of you and your family are essential if you are serious about surviving any world wide disaster. Sad, but true. Realism is another essential part of survival in tough times. Always keep this in mind as this is serious business.

Must-Have Survival Tools

Leatherman - Super Tool 300 Multi-Tool, Stainless Steel with Leather Sheath
Leatherman - Super Tool 300 Multi-Tool, Stainless Steel with Leather Sheath

In my opinion, the most important survival tool one may possess in any outdoor emergency situation. Don't settle for cheap imitations when your life depends on having quality tools.

 

The Days Before the Event

Be sure to acquire some good quality survival tools, such as a good ax, multi-tool, and plenty of fire starting supplies. You may have to take to the woods at any time if a serious threat to your safety arises. As in ancient times, the wilderness offers safety if you are prepared to take advantage of it. Make this a last resort if possible, but having several backup plans is necessary for a good survival effort.

If you are the camping type, you may already have an RV of some sort and are already basically prepared for surviving certain disasters or cataclysms. Many motorhomes and travel trailers are already equipped with generators plus onboard water supplies and cooking utensils and may be secreted in many isolated areas around the country.

The days preceding Dec.-21st could be utilized as a pre-Christmas vacation just in case something really does occur. If not, then one can simply go home and be thankful for such a pleasant excursion in the country instead of the nightmare scenario predicted by some.

More Supplies and Where To Go!

Other essential supplies

If you, or any other member of your family, require special medical needs it is best to make certain you are well stocked in case of a long term stay in your sanctuary. A well supplied first aid kit is essential to your survival stockpile, as is a good medical handbook giving proper first aid techniques and procedures.

Over-the-counter painkillers and other common illness medications should also be stockpiled and, like the foodstuffs, can always be used later on. Make a list of the most used items as you get closer to the date and use this as an indication of what to stock up on. If you have access to antibiotics be sure and take these too.

Where to go ?

This is something you must decide for yourself as I am certainly not going to tell everyone what my preference for a sanctuary would be. Do your research and try to pick a spot off the beaten path which most people are not aware of. Yes, this may be the most difficult aspect of a successful survival attempt and one which must be given careful consideration. But at the very least, try to be a good distance from any large city if possible. Even a small isolated motel is better than nothing in a situation such as this.

Be prepared, is the best advice I can give you, and look for warning signs of something which may indicate a coming disaster or worldwide calamity. Will December the 12th 2012 be the date when all of this knowledge of survival will be most valuable? Who knows, but being prepared for any emergency situation should be your goal in this particular endeavor. Myself? I’ll be attending my 12-21-12 end of the world party, no matter what cave….er… location I’m in at the time. Good luck!

Great article. The Maya were advanced beyond their time is certainly true, but I would prefer to back our scientists with all their equipment and knowlege of the universe.

There have been so many of these Nostradamus type "end of world" stories.

If it come, it comes. No doubt Yellowstone will blow one day, and another ice-age will start as well as a huge heavenly body crashing into the earth. It's all a lottery

Thanks, Bob! I have no fear of the 12-21-12 event but since this is getting a bit of attention from some folks, I figured it would be a good time to suggest a few tips which also pertain to other possible world wide disaster scenarios. or even local disasters, for that matter.

The Mayans were fairly advanced in the field of astronomy compared to the Europeans at the time, however! Thanks again for your comments and time!

One of the best 2012 articles I've read on the HP done up in the inimitable Randy Godwin style. Well, the announcements go from a wonderful New Age of higher consciousness to the pole shift you wrote on abit, to time/dimensional portals opening and beyond. Speaking of sanctuary's, if a pole shift were to happen South Africa with it's heavy landmass on top might be the best place to be hanging out. At any rate, Randy you are so very correct that no matter what does or doesn't happen folks should always be prepared for emergencys. Pretty good price on the generator and some other items and if anyone purchases that one years supply of food will you please let me know!

Randy Godwin 4 years ago from Southern Georgia Author

Glad you found this hub interesting, Alastar! Yes, it always pays to expect the unexpected, even if the 12-21-12 scenario is simply a fanciful expectation, emergency preparation gives one a certain sense of comfort.

Yes, the generator works well as I use it for jobs where electrical power isn't handy and I'd hoped you would order the years supply of food so you could tell me how good it tasted! After all, I do trust your opinion and it would please me to no end. LOL!

Thanks again!

I think it's always a good idea to be prepared for emergencies with food and other supplies. I also think if the world ends we won't need any of that stuff. As for the Mayan calendar, it had to end sometime, otherwise some poor guy would still be chiseling away at it. 12-21-12 will be just another day for me.

You gave some good insight into the many possible tragedies that could befall this planet as well as some great advice for surviving any type of emergency. I especially like the product suggestions you posted down the side. I never knew you could buy a years worth of survival food for a whole family! In protective cans no less!

It's surprising how ill prepared most people are when it comes to these simple common sense measures. We've become too complacent in our daily lives. But really, I hope these tips are never needed. Better to have an end of the world party for nothing! LOL!

Well done Hub. The way I look at it - if the date - 12/21/12, happens to be the end of the world - I hope to meet Jesus Up In the Air and not survive under the ground. A thought came to me with all these tunnels/bunkers being made into the crust of the Earth and with fracking - mining - maybe the Earth will collapse with sink holes. Did God construct the planet to have it holed out? If it was the end - all electrical grids would burn out - if you had a short-wave radio - what would you listen to? Useful & Interesting - Voted Up.

Alright Randy! You made me chuckle. You covered the subject well, and the time you spent on the images was worth it. You even presented the products perfectly. Personally, I don't believe they even know how to read the Mayan Calendar. If they let on that they don’t, the grant money would dry up.

Still, it is worth being prepared around here. A hurricane can get you any day. The solar panels are probably the best bet. As far as global event disasters . . . I am thinking of five ponds I have heard about in Georgia.

Jim Bakker (PTL club) will be glad to sell you some end of the world supplies. I guess he never learned his lesson

Randy Godwin 4 years ago from Southern Georgia Author

HA! Yep,and besides WD, I don't think the Mayans had a true leap year which might throw things off a bit! LOL!

And if it takes hypothetical calamities to make folks aware of possible future disasters, then so be it! Got to get their attention somehow! And you may be correct about Jim Bakker having extra supplies too! I wonder if he had any left over beer caches?

And I do have plenty of fish, as well as a few cows I kept just in case!!

Nice work, its refreshing to see an initial post with some brains instead of the "run for the hills", or the "your dead no matter what you do" mentality. I guess if I were greedy enough to make a dime off of humanities paranoia I'd sell a ridiculous book about it to.

I spoke at length with some elders at a nursing home recently about the subject and they can give great insight on how to live without some of the common indulgences we all take for granted. Bottom line is unless you are specifically targeted and hit by one of these occurrences and die right away if you can prepare for an extended camping trip with some nod given to personal security of yourself and immediate members of your group you can outlast the initial happenings and have a good headstart on most people to outlasting and surviving a large percentage of any of the things that could happen that people are afraid of. I won't quit paying my bills until at least the 23rd of Dec just to be sure. Another tip for some may be to atleast befriend a person who is familiar with the outdoors and survival and be sure to include them in your survival plan/party or have them include you in theirs. Even that will go a long way in putting you ahead of the curve in getting through the worst of a short term complication from whatever occurs. The very best advise I can give on anything , in the words of the famous philosopher Frankie from "Frankie Goes To Hollywood" is "RELAX" its a well known fact if you don't tense up during a traumatic event, you sustain much less damage. And if you follow my other advise you gain a friend and that could be useful even if we all just wake up and go back to work as usual.

Anyways with all the hype lately and things I have read and heard I just felt this was the time and place to plop down my 2 cents worth, but not that its even worth that, but maybe atleast someone will appreciate I have mentioned Frankie in my rant. Thanks again for the read, blessings to you and everyone and best of luck with whatever happens in December because I can foresee that no matter what it will be interesting to see how everyone handles it if nothing else. LOVE PEACE AND CHICKEN GREASE!

Aye Randy, I've had no worries since the well went down and I struck an underground river (according to the old man and his drill rig and the pressure pushing up the casing) I set prepared every day, the survival rations I have bought that tasted like crap got re-boxed and sold at the flea market. Not a rip off as calories are calories, so the buyer is able to survive on them, they may not create any smiles at dinner but guaranteed to make a stool. I learned the art of 25 year expiration bulk stores in Mylar bags that are in 5 gallon food grade pail with a snap on lid that has a center that unscrews. Rather than buy a specialty lid for each, I bought a 10 pack. I mean the lid off a bucket of beans or flour can be moved to the next bucket as one uses them. Take note that medications have no real expiration date, past a recommended one. A bottle of 10 year old aspirin gets a different smell to it when opened, but still works as well as a new one, I do rotate certain stores as I use them. Then I don't keep them all in one cave, I've scattered them and buried some, to keep with my observations of 4 ft deep remote thermometers to find that after 4 weeks of 106 degree days the 80 degree temperature is stable as well as the area experiences no ground freeze that temperature in mid January is still 70 degrees. At this time if one holds stock in the prediction of the calendar, they are too late to do ground temperature studies. At any rate be it the November or December dates of destruction or the dates that George Zimmerman is cleared of the bogus charges and riots break out in cities coast to coast and martial law is imposed, I'm set for a 20 mile radius by jeep to much more by horse and ass traveling packed to survive to another quite special place, I'll carry provisions for the trip and shelter and water with food stores to stay are already in place.

A great essay on the laughable predictions but not so funny that I have not planned for them as sure as the sun is hot sooner or later something will take place, after all just setting and watching stupid beings over populate and burn up all the resources must be boring to the creator, kinda like watching paint dry. No great entertainment since we tried out the nukes and dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese who rebuilt a mega metropolis on what was said to be ground that would be unusable for thousands of years and it's been what? 66 years, so what are they building in Chernobyl? LOL

Thanks for the entertaining yet informative read for the unprepared for even 3 days of failure of stores to restock their shelves......

Peace,

Thanks so much for some hands-on experience, Dusty! The internet is filled with nonsense from so many folks with no actual idea what survival preparation entails. I have no doubt you are prepared for the worst, whenever and whatever it turns out to be.

Our own personal landscapes differ in so many ways and so do the materials we need for sustenance in a real emergency survival situation. Water would be no problem here, nor food either for those who have grown up in these swamps and woodlands. Your advice should really be listened to by those in your part of the world. And your tips on food storage and use are pertinent to anyone wherever they are.

Once again, I appreciate your time and input on my articles.

Respect!

Randy, hell got my own grave dug and braced walls to keep it from caving in until I get there, I got several late grate dogs and 1 horse there now all with head stones out of cool rocks with sand blasted names and dates. The horse got a real granite until I found out how they put them letters in the rock, around here sand is free, takes some looking but flat sided rocks are free too.

Keep writing the good stuff, I'll try and keep up,

Thanks as always for your pertinent comments and advice, and of course, for your time.

You did a pretty good job explaining what could happen on this "ominous" date and how one should prepare, just in case. I just wanted to make light that there is another side to the theory pole and it is not all doom and gloom. Some people believe that humans are evolving for the better and the tragedy that is occuring today is due to us "getting it out of our system." These theorists believe that after that marked date, there will be more positive in the world than negative. They believe that people are changing for the better and evolving to be more spiritual. Out of all the theories that exist, I would have to lean toward one of the more positive as there has already existed more than enough negativity in this world.
