DoomsDay Preppers - Anyone watch it?

Locked

#1 by valerie » Wed Feb 08, 2012 12:42

There's a new show on television called 'DoomsDay Preppers' and it started last night.
They put two shows on back to back, each 1 hour in length.

I found it very interesting, laughable, and informative too.

One man made his family home out of shipment crates....you know the big metal shipping crates that
are usually seen at ocean shipping docks. Those are pretty neat and I have viewed them in youtbue
videos as people buy them for about 5 thousand dollars each, then make houses out of them. Anyway,
this one man made a big square fortress out of them. In the middle of them is where he plants food..
the garden area is open. Inside the crates is living rooms, kitchen, and many storage areas for food.
I think they said they have enough food to last their families 15 to 22 years. They spend their entire
day preparing foods for canning, training in self defense, and even their children know how to defend
themselves and use weapons.

On one of the shows, a woman would buy eggs when they were selling at low cost, she then would
put plastic thin toss away gloves on, rub each egg, and put them back in the egg crate and store them.
She side by wiping them off in that fashion, the eggs would be good for 18 months. That is without
refrigeration...just wipe each one off with a plastic glove. I seriously going to do my research on that.

Maybe if I was a kid or in my twenties, I could see this more but not so sure I could...I mean, the extreme
lengths that people go to in preparedness for a doomsday scenario. I would rather die than live my life
like that. I think all those people truly enjoy living their life that way. Some people climb mountains,
some people live their life day to day preparing for the end of the world or a major breakdown of life
as we know it.

If we have a nuclear war or out entire infrastructure breaks down, and things become an all out
survival mode....I want to be dead. I think it's wise to have extra supply of food, water, and things
like that on hand....because you never know when their might be an electric outage for days or
there might be a natural disaster that you have to live thru for some weeks or a few months.

I'd just prefer to be dead than have to fight people or watch my skin fall off after a nuclear disaster
or become sick and be no way to get help, or any of that. I guess I am a whimp but to me, living
like that is not life. I can't live my life every day worrying what might happen tomorrow.

Still, the show is very interesting and if you can get it, watch it. They might even post snip its of
it on youtube or else where online. I'm sure it's already getting a whole lot of feedback.

I said that show was new but I guess it's not....maybe I just saw the first in this season...not sure.
I keep missing it tho, never do keep up with what day and time it comes on. Guess I should set it to
record.

I've watched the movie 'Walking Dead'...I think it was a zombie movie.

When does Walking Dead come on and channel? Is it a zombie show?

I use to like to watch ice road truckers. After a few years, got kind of burnt out on it.

Yes Walking Dead is a zombie/survival show it shows on Sundays 9/8c on AMC, I say if you haven't watched it from the start you really be clueless.

I'll check it out tomorrow night.

If it's not the first season, I might.....hey, maybe I have watched it.

Seems like some months ago I did watch a show...it was as you said, a survivor type show where
I guess most all the people had died except for some groups of people. There was some military
left and I think they were in maybe California. Maybe I am thinking of something else because
I want to think it was aliens from Mars or something and they would take people and put something
in the back of their head/neck and turn them into zombies. It was a good show. :lol: I think I
did see the first couple of them. I'll tune in tomorrow and see if it is the same one.

I think I may have either watched the premier or the first couple of episodes it's first season.

Some times something else comes on and then I get interested in it, at the same time.

I noticed doomsday comes on right now but it's a rerun. :roll:
