Things going on just seems like maybe the earth crust is heating.

Not since 1812 MIP at closing and financed

Earthquake in Haiti hasnt happen in a couple of decades

Earthquake in Chili

all this has happen with last couple of months

I am in the Carolinas according to this history channel video
the Carolinas are at risk.

I have a Grandmother that lives on the western side of the
Appalachians and I thought I could return to the way her and
my late grandfather lived . THe mountains would shield me from any
Tsunami. There house is by a creek (water source) & well water
They have barn I could raise chickens and lots of land to garden on.
If more earthquakes are more frequent do you think in
March of 2012 is a good time to start moving there and start the garden

2012 may or may not bring the world to its knees. Nevertheless, it is wise to always be prepared for the unexpected by having emergency supplies on hand. FEMA and the Red Cross have advised people for decades to do just this. How far you want to carry it is your own choice.

I'm all for being prepared for emergencies, natural disaster, war, famine, civil unrest, social collapse, etc. But, really, if all you are preparing for is 2012, and it goes down the way the doomsdayers are predicting, there is no point. None of us will make it no matter how prepared our fortress may be. Again, I'm not discouraging you from preparedness--just prepare for something that is survivable. So, rather than thinking about meteors striking a block away, or the earth spinning out of it's orbit, think more along the lines of 'if the grocery store ran out of food, what would I eat?' or 'if there were social chaos tomorrow, do I have a plan of escape or survival?' or 'what if an earthquake hit tomorrow?'

Sunny-Like the others have said it won't matter where you have your kayak docked on 12/21/2012, because when the Sun, the Earth, and the giant black hole in our galaxy line up, the mantel will be sucked off the Earth.

At least that's what my old man says. I'm actually okay with this scenario. Everything and everybody gone in a flash. Oh well, like Neil Young says..."It's better to burn out than fade away!"

This is good advice. If you are going to prepare for a disaster, prepare with food (including food for pets), water, tools, utensils, shelter, warm clothing, fuel, medical supplies (basic first aid materials), soap (you'll want it), flashlights and batteries, a way to communicate, transportation and barter items. Have a basic plan and discuss with your family how you plan to get through it.

If you live in a large city, survival plans are likely to be different than if you live in a rural area. You may want to get out of Dodge fast in the event of a big disaster and if this be the case, have a plan in place and some basic supplies packed and ready to "grab and go". Some call this their BOB ("bug out bag"). I like "GAG bag" (grab and go).

The point is to not wait until the shelves are bare to start getting ready for a disaster.

Sorry for the mix up, that was supposed to be...the "mantle" will be sucked off the earth on 12/21/2012.

Carry on!

enough with the 2012 crap, The Mayans never disappeared... Today, the Mayans and their descendants form sizable populations throughout the Maya area and maintain a distinctive set of traditions and beliefs that are the result of the merger of pre-Columbian and post-Conquest ideas and cultures...and guess what, they made a new calendar AFTER 2012.. the earth will always be here and there will always be people on the earth...

Not true. The sun will eventually go 'red giant,' etc, and finally cease to exist. No sun=no life on earth. Just sayin'.
