"I'm preparing for a catastrophic tsunami."

Don Kubley is Craig Compeau’s biggest prepping partner. He lives in Juneau, Alaska with his wife, son, and daughter who are all on board with his prepping. But in a bug out situation, Don will travel over 800 miles to meet Craig at his camouflage survival dome. Together at the dome, Don and Craig are storing nine months of food, two years of wood and twenty different kinds of weapons. Don has taught his family to prep, hunt and survive on their own because if a tsunami hits Alaska, Don wants his family to survive.
