Didn't watch, but it's just wasted money like all of the people who spent thousands on Y2K bunkers. Best case scenario you end up well-stocked in basic supplies with a new "mancave".


I dont agree. I admit that the "solar flares" and "magnetic pole shift" scenarios are pretty laughable, but there are a few real dangers to our way of life.

With the way our government is spending us into oblivion, i think that the biggest threat that we face is some kind of sudden rapid decline in our economy that may be worse than the great depression, and we may never recover from.

It is not a bad idea to at least keep 6 months of food, a few firearms, and some first aid supplies at the very least.

Ehhh, people like this have always interested me. I'd personally rather just live my life and roll with whatever comes my way instead of living in fear of a disaster that will probably never happen.


Could someone answer me why Gold is going to be worth so much money in an economic downfall? It's just a fuging rock so I don't see how it could posses any value.

gold is a hedge and not an investment. the old way of thinking makes people think its all about gold.

what if i told you the powers that be are going to make sure when the caca hits the fan that gold won't really matter?

water and food. at the end of the day that's what it will come down to. if you have it, you will be lucky, until those that don't find out that you do.

Kind of an interesting show. Not sure that I would shoot my house to test it's safety but that's just me. Some doomsday preppers are a little nuts. I'm not buying into the whole zombie apocolypse. The 2 biggest things I can imagine that would affect survival are the collapse of the US economy or some kind of super bug that spreads around the world much like the plague did throughout Europe.

I see nothing wrong with being over prepared for natural disaster. Look at what happened following haiti, katrina, the tsunami, japanese earthquake. People were begging for help. Unless you're prepared, there won't be any.

Another interesting show on the same subject was Decoded. They did a feature on the mayan calender ending. I found that more interesting overall.

It won't be.

Real Currency would be Ammunition, First Aid supplies, ETC.

Things that are of practical use.

Did anyone else see the show where they did an experiment and put 9 or 10 people in a survival situation with minimal supplies and tried to make it semi-real. It was actually pretty interesting to watch how useless some people are when it really matters. I think it was called "the colony."

I watched one episode of 'Preppers' this weekend... some of the people are a bit wacko, and some of them are just normal people doing things that make a lot of sense.

some more contrarian things i think will help you is buying time. one of my plans is if something happens, my fam migrates somewhere and holes up for 3-6 months. just simply lay low, conserve food, ammo, medical supplies etc and buy time and see what is going on. where are the hot spots, where is the violence, where is the govt/military etc.

one fear is just the human aspect of being sold out for supplies etc to whoever is "in charge" ie the govt.

you have to also plan ahead with stuff you are going to barter with. go ahead and plan that junk out so its your survival capital. don't wait till you are so far down with something that your leverage is bad.

other little tips. a nice tool to cut locks or fences. don't think there are some things that are at some storage sheds that will help you out? i will use them like a 7/11. travel light and when i need something go to one.

l just hope if you plan that you also plan for as much total paradigm shifts as possible and don't think like the masses.
