I will say though the woman and husband who have $100k invested into food preps did catch my eye some. While 99% of us will not have that much into food preps she did have some good ideas on preserving foods besides canning as well as trying to cook "gourmet" foods. At this point it looks like this show is going to do more harm to the averages person of the "prepper". Like o yea I saw shit like that on that nat geo show once, you guys are all lunatics..... However I think for those of us that do prep can get a few good ideas here and there to add to our own preps.
Yeah, I felt the same way. This is definitely not an educational series in our sense - just to educate the public against us. And their idiotic reasons for prepping are simply getting worse. I think Nat Geo is behind making them choose one of their canned rationale. The "germs" lady was truly batshiat crazy, although a good community helper. But will those suits really make a difference with her kids around the house? Really? They aren't NBC rated, so they're useless, except for being out in the community, so why the rush to don them? She be watchin too many movies.
The trucker had my attention - it definitely followed a thread on this forum for long haul trucking. AND THEY BREACHED ZS FORUM RULES FOR TALKING ABOUT STEALING! OMG! Dude said he'd steal fuel if necessary - I suddenly felt like ZS's collective brain was imploding while realizing the dire circumstance which would lead someone to follow such a horrific path!
Oh wait, no I didn't. He's just talking honestly about what it'd take to survive. I also definitely appreciate his long haul tank BOV approach. His wife wasn't 100% on board, but she played along admirably. Their scenario was also an eye opener - DO NOT go into the path of danger to help people, unless you have the backup firepower to protect yourself and secure a location, your truck and loved ones. He didn't. He'd be dead.
