Meet the Season One Preppers
So far the only the person profiled that I can even remotely relate to is Jimi Falcon, he is not a gear freak, lives simply and is very creative with what he has. He is the best prepared and probably the most level headed of the lot. To quote Jimi "Keep It Simple Stupid"!
Mrs. Kellene, I'm LDS also and was very impressed with how you are prepping And would like to know more of the things you have learned to do. So that we can also do it at home like the cheese dipped in wax and eggs etc. I'm may be coming to SLC in Nov. 2014 to visit family I was wondering if you would be willing to show me your tricks and helpful hints. my email is email@example.com
Thank youLaura Nall

Per the Armour Foods website. I believe that this answers your question & a few more that may arise.
Hi everyone. I have 1 question. I would like to know how long Canned goods will store? I have both a water bath and pressure canner. I can for myself about 12-18 months worth during a season.
Hi everyone. I have 1 question. How Long will Home Canned goods last? Using both Water Bath and Pressure Canning method. I have both but only can for not more than 12 - 18 months.
Hi Jason! How u been? It was so cool watching the show all the way in Sweden and boom I see ur face! Long time! Tried to find u on FB but no luck so please contact me if u see this! This is Lulu by the way and I'm into a similar lifestyle myself nowadays... firstname.lastname@example.org
I liked the show initially....NOW, there are SO MANY nut jobs on the episodes. The fat hill billy dude that was a so-called "Marauder" and going to do the C-section on his wife!! Zoiks!! The fireman on last night's episode that was worried about the Russians and building his Trojan horse. Ugh!! Doesn't hurt to be ready and have a plan. I TRULY believe NATGEO is going across the US and looking for these EXTREME PREPPERS just because they make for "good viewing." It makes anyone else who says they "PREP" look like either extremists or loony bin goof balls. Again, I applaud all of the folks who ARE ready and who are self sufficient and will make it when the SHTF. Keeping it "under the radar" /not advertising is the idea here. I guess "NORMAL" doesn't sell and EVERYTHING has to be SENSATIONALIZED to pay the bills. Is it a "bad thing" to hope for zombies?? Maybe we need to go back to learning how to be self sufficient....how things were "back in the day" with grandpa and grandma..... THEY weren't called "PREPPERS." THEY were just normal folk who saved and stored "in case we needed it", whether it was a long winter or the crops/animals didn't fair too well in a season. Get it together people.
I'm not following why someone that is concerned about the welfare of children is automatically considered liberal and non-religious???? That's disturbing in itself.
I would love to get to know Megan........MPH1180@aol
Shes an intelligent, realistic, sexy woman,,,Id like to have a woman like her to face the. apocolypse with
Becky Brown is a wonderful example of what women can do. I applaud her for her intelligence, drive and dedication. She is Absolutely Gorgeous !!!! Where are the women like her hiding. Marry me Becky!!!! For real. baustin40965@yahoo.
Many of the men on this show are domestic violence abusers. They are abusing their children. Forcing their children to do endless training drills is abuse. Forcing their children to go along with their paranoid and insane worldviews is abuse. Many of the men on this show are terrorizing their children and controlling them in ways that are beyond creepy.
Also, where are the mothers of some of the children in these segments? Why are they not on-screen? I know the answer -- because they are the victims of domestic violence. "Mental" and "emotional" abuse are just as terrifying as physical abuse. Many of the male doomsday preppers are abusing their families.
If there is an EMP it will destroy the computers in your car preventing that from running and destroying all your plans.
better store your car in a shipping container too dude

@TJ Phillips hi I do canning to, when I can mine have lasted upto 3 years I didn't do anything different over the past few years I just set aside several jars and just let them go 6months past the date I put on them .kindof just testing them to see how long they last but the best test you have really is your nose .but I also use the jars before there date and my store bought cans to and just keep them in a rotation as soon as I use something I replace it buying it or canning it .I just keep everything in a constant rotation by date so I know if anything did happen everything will be safe and fresh .but that's just me im hoping to test my canning jars unto 5years that's my goal ,what do you do different ?
I agree Misha. I have discovered several boxes from my grandmother. All kinds of bizarre canning and processing implements. All I need is the pressure cooker. Granny would not know what a prepper was. She would probably laugh. They all had gardens in the 30s and 40s.
@Lauren Vachon I agree with you, I've seen a few episodes and the fathers definitely seem mentally and emotionally abusive. Not to mention completely insane. And the fans of this show doggedly defending them are obviously cut from the same cloth.
@Lauren Vachon You need help. Survival training is not abuse. They may seem extreme to you an I but when **** hits fan they ready. My Oldest son is ex-army medic. He still trains harder than any of these ppl. My youngest is not so advide but he to trains harder. Not everyone that expects good old fashion quality that made this America strong and win 2 World Wars is an abuser. Sorry it happened to you.If ya don't like it turn chan, You don't know these people. " Let him without sin cast the first stone.
@Lauren Vachon Woman! Get back to the kitchen where you belong.... Daddy needs a sammich.
@Lauren Vachon You sound like a liberal troll on this site. Guess you should turn your channel. But then again sounds like you got the wrong end of the stick if you don't mind the pun. Guess you should drag your kids the church as well or is that bad as well forcing religion on them that is.
@Lauren Vachon If you dont like the show, just tune out. Making assumptions about abuse and insulting people for their lifestyle choices makes you look like a judgemental hater. I think your comment represents a good example of why its better to keep your opinion to yourself.
@john oe having a vehicle to drive is the least of your worries in an EMP event. during the Carrington event of 1859, the telegraph wires, which had cloth insulation at that time, burst into flames. when the next event happens all the wiring in your house will burst into flames, the wiring on the poles will burst into flames, anything metal will melt or become extremely hot as it absorbs the EMPs (can you say microwave). now back to your vehicle, as a general rule anything before 1980 is computer free, except for the 1977-80 Lincoln Versailles (it has the EEC 1 system on everyone of them) and some GM products, the easy way to check the GM's is look at the carburetor and if you see more than 1 electrical connector attached to it, it has a computer. but alas it still won't do you any good if it burns to the ground because the wiring caught on fire. you could store it in a shipping container but vehicles don't like to sit and when you do need it, you will have all kinds of leaks from the gaskets drying out and performance issues, if it will even start. Gasoline has an incredibly short shelf life ( from personal observation about 3-6 months) before it evaporates and clogs everything with the varnish it leaves behind. you can try and use Sta-Bil but I have only seen mixed success with it
@john oe Not if you dont get an only ass car with no CPU ie something made before the 1960s. Dar. Just keep a battery in a cage and your good simple minded people.
@ALex Steadman way to go Alex. With your generation the worlds fate will be decided. Living a self sufficient life style and treating the earth well shows wisdom beyond your years. Kudos and keep up the good work.
If you and Lauren would like I could set up a specific site just for ignorant people such as you two lovely women. And we were cut from the same cloth, it's called the survival cloth of life! Don't come knocking if you can't educate your self.
@ paul pelletier,
I could not agree with you more. People seem to have everyone else's problems figured out but there own. If people would just stay out of everyone else's business life would be more enjoyable. Oh and double cheers. And as goes for you Lauren Vachon, you have no clue what you're talking about. Do those kids look abused? Have you thought that some of the men could be without a wife for reasons out of their control? People like you speculate on things you'll never understand as to why you're so quick to judge. And in my area, we call that ignorance!
Not trying to sound like ???Hole, just trying to explain that if you don't have your facts straight, Do your some research before you really tick one these hillbillies off?
God love us, because everyone else thinks we're ahole's!
Catch ya on the flip side!
