ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) – We are fast approaching what some people believe will be the end of the world.  Some followers of the Mayan calendar believe doomsday will occur on December 21.  Apocalyptic endings to the world have been predicted for centuries; since you're reading this it appears they were wrong.
 
Nonetheless, people all around the world are preparing for what could be the end of the world.  From man-made disasters to super storms and power outages, they are stockpiling everything from food to guns, and almost everything in between.  Priority one: Being dependent on no one to survive whatever comes their way.
 
Watch as Contact 2 visits with a South St. Louis man who, while not an extreme prepper, is still ready should disaster strike.
