Thread: "Doomsday Preppers"

Did anybody see that show "Doomsday Preppers" on National Geographic Channel this weekend? I don't know if it has been shown before or not.
They had 4 different families that are preppers, they showed their preps and then had "experts" rate their preps and give suggestions.
There were quite a few good ideas on there. One family turned their pool into a greenhouse with a place to raise tillapia. They raise enough fish to where they could eat fish everyday if they had to.
Just wondering if anybody saw this and picked up any good ideas." If you want to live, treat me good " Peter Tosh

Yeah, they first aired it a month or so ago. I think there might have been a thread on it already. Not sure.
I thought it was funny that they were showing off all this stuff. If I had what they had, I would not of done that.
I still thought it was a good show, obviously because I love this stuff!I'll keep my guns, freedom, and money... YOU CAN KEEP THE "CHANGE"!

you can find one of the guys ("southern prepper1") on YouTube. Apparently, they had a lot of control over the content and felt it was worth the hit on opsec in order to get the word out on what people whould be doing and what "preppers" really are. Apparently,the "soccer Mom" is really The Survival Mom and she has a nice blog. I admire that they chose to do this to get the word out, I'm not sure I would have, but it was their choice and from what I hear, a lot of people watched and learned from the show.http://greensurviving.blogspot.com/

Now that the show has been up and running for the better part of a season. I agree that they are making targets of themselves. There is both good and bad information out there. You can pick and choose information from the shows that will work for your situation. Last night they showed the guy with the missile silo in Kansas. That is the kind of crap I can't stand...elitist prepping...I'm sure we all have a couple of million bucks to drop in this guys pocket! Personally, I'm getting my family prepared to to be ready for when the elitists try to push us all into a fox hole.
