Interesting. If the original author of the list did indeed spend $130,000 already and still needs these items my question is simply what did he buy already?
Patrick Geryl, who has spent more than $130,000 preparing for doomsday, sent CNNMoney his list of the nearly 100 survival items that he plans to purchase before December. 21, 2012 -- the day he believes the world as we know it will end.

Meh. Sounds like a CNNMoney reader just emailed it for inclusion in some journalist's blog. I don't see any special significance to this beyond it appeared somewhere on the internet.

If the author had some interesting credenitals, I'd take notice. But it seems to be just another doomsday list someone has pulled together.

meh.. there's a prequel to this story http://money.cnn.com/2012/03/13/pf/doom ... /index.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Seems he wrote "How to Survive 2012" and eight other books about 2012 TEOTWAWKI. He doesn't go into specifics on that page about his $130,000 worth of preps either.

The 100 items preps list is really no different from any other list with the exception of this item; Drafting Table -- for charting stars in the sky... okeedokee then.

Not sure I'd care what he has to say since he thinks the world will end ON Dec 21, 2012 and his bug out plans are to hide in a bunker in South Africa (he lives in Belgium .. uh huh?) and he hasn't even planned how to get there yet. He better figure something out soon.

I think I would like his contact information. I suspect that I would be able to get a deal on his preps January 1, 2013. :D

Exactly. Not sure what Discover/ History Channel are going to do with all their specials focused on 2012. And by the way, the "author" of the above list featured prominently in one of those specials....

Well, that's an interesting list of miscellaneous items.

Unless I missed it, he doesn't have a knife. But I guess he can use the grindstone to sharpen the pencil.
