December 21, 2012 is fast approaching. I’m not really one to believe in Mayan prophecies or ‘End of the World’ folktales, but even Wikipedia has a page devoted to the 2012 phenomenon. Some my friends even think that 2012 will bring on the Zombie Apocalypse. For some reason this seems more believable since I recently read a man in Miami ate the face off some other old guy. Turns out it was probably the result of smoking bath salts. Or just a wicked case of the munchies. Whatever, it was drugs. Regardless, whether it’s the end of Modern Civilization, a zombie takeover, or an army of cannibal bath-salt smokers, I want to be prepared just in case shit hits the fan. For these reasons (not really) and because I thought it would be fun and educational, I did a two day survival skills course with Tom Coyne and the Survival Training School of California (STSC) in Tehachapi, just two hours north of Los Angeles.
