Greetings fellow ATS'rs,
I have seen a few threads here and there about National Geographic "Doomsday Preppers". Some folks have alot of questions, some have negative
comments, and some are cheering them on.
My father is Paul. He and Gloria, his wife, are featured in "The Bug Out" one of the small previews, and they will be in a major segment of the
series airing on the 7th I believe.
I started a previous thread about their video, "the bug out", but I wanted to start another one with the title of Doomsday preppers, and to
specifically announce that I am PROUD OF HIM.
If you want to see "the bug out" here is a link
While I do not live in the compound featured in the video, I am very familiar with it, and have helped from time to time in its construction. It is a
very interesting place.
I do keep onhand enough supplies and ammo/weapons for a small bugout if neccesary, I do not go as far as Paul and Gloria do because it requires a
substantial devotion to the prepper lifestyle that doesnt work with my current lifestyle, but I do agree with the lifestyle choice. I would not be
totally surprised if they are right, and that civilization does collapse. My hope is, that if the World does end, to make it to their compound with
what I currently keep in stock. I even drive an old analog volvo from the 70's with no computer components, in case of an EMP wave.
I have many fond memories of growing up as a prepper. It is a childhood filled with really interesting memories of survival hikes, drying food,
weapons training and safety, and constant planning of "what if" scenarios. We even lived in a school bus at one time. It was a cool childhood.
Check the link out, and watch my Dad on the National Geographic Channel's "Doomsday Preppers."
I love him and he has always been a great dad!
