It is simply the end of the current Long Count, and December 22, 2012 will be the beginning of the next Long Count, or cycle in the Mayan calendar. In fact, the Mayans have names for the Long Counts, and the fact that they've named Long Counts beyond this one suggests that this won't be the last. It is significant, however, that we are entering a new cycle in the Mayan calendar.
But in case you are still worried:
A more extensive version of this survival kit is the Deluxe 2-Person Perfect Survival Kit which includes:
2 person tube tent
24 pouches of water
24 200-calorie food bars
Flint (for starting fires)
Flashlight with lithium batteries
Multifunction utility knife
First aid kit
Headphones and rechargeable batteries
2 Light sticks
16-Hour body warmer
Soap, toothbrush and toothpaste, tissues, moist wipes
This in and of itself is a great idea Mr.Mayor.But a certain degree of practical outdoor survival skills is also necessary to survive.
Given the widespread use GPS devices and mapquest,I doubt most people could find their ass with both hands and a flashlight.:)
