Meet the Season One Preppers
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

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

@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.
