Starts tonight on NatGeo. 2 episodes tonight I believe.
We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. - Patrick Henry

This show is why I don't like referring to myself as a "prepper" anymore. Though I watch it, IMO, it is nothing but a way to show crazy people for ratings, like any other reality show. The effect is giving the rest of us a bad name.

Thank you! I started to type what you said, but couldn't figure out how to phrase it. I like the show because it shows different perspectives, but I hate how the people they pick appear to be very very strange.

With justin I have been watching the marathon today and well I just cant take these people serious. Entertaining sort of but I think the concept is ridiculous for reasons of OPSEC. Yes lets have these secret stashes of food guns ammo and other gear, and then lets go on national TV and talk about it to the world.
I just dont get it. Shrug

I fully agree with your statement. The only reason I could see those people going on TV is so that NatGeo would pay them a lot of money, and then they can use that money towards prepping. Other than that (and that is still a crappy excuse), I don't know why they would disclose their stash of supplies, location(s) for extraction, plans of operation, and training skills. Shrug

I agree with Justin, but there are some people that have some very good ideas on there. I wish they'd focus more on the actual stuff that they're doing and not on the batshit crazy stuff.

Which is why, despite my over all negative outlook on the show, I still watch it.

yeah they do have some actual helpful information. Though I do not think i will be building a 10000 sqft complex out of old school buses anytime soon.
