“Doomsday” Shows

Let’s get something straight right now, before there are too many other dreams of stardom that override common sense. If you want to star on a show, find one that has nothing to do with Doomsday this or Doomsday that. Go on a sitcom, or some cooking reality show. No one that appears on one of these “preppers shows” will ever again be able to regain anonymity. No one that signs a contract for rights and rewards will be able

Nuclear War, Personal Considerations

In 1983, we were well within the danger zone of a nuclear exchange with the USSR. Reagan’s presidency was in its second year, and the man was still fighting the demons of nuclear holocaust. So was I. Standing in a line at the administration building of my local university, I heard a conversation behind me between two smartly dressing young men. Their subject was the choice of an eventual major. The first student had no clue, but the second –

The Cat is out of the Bag

The cat is out of the bag. Preppers are going mainstream, at least as comedic fare. Look at all the new shows. Doomsday Preppers. Doomsday Bunkers. Armageddon Preppers (casting call in the works). Meet the Preppers (Coming). PreppersTV (from the group that did Doomsday Preppers, except now they want more extreme preppers…).

There will be more…. this public-prepper-people thing is getting traction, and interest generates CASH. The focus is to entertain and sell air time, not teach. What they decide

Is There a Best Bunker?

Update 09/29/13 – New article listing shelter manufacturers.

What if they gave a bunker party and no one could find it? LOL!

Whatever the purpose of the bunker, you certainly don’t want it to be known that you have one. So you better pass up the opportunity to be on any of the “Doomsday” shows. Don’t invite the reality shows over for a look-see, because they and everyone else will see it. See?

Seriously, folks… the best bunker is the

What Is Important to Some Preppers ...

… might seem silly to others.

I had the opportunity to see inside the mind of a prepper today. This guy has been removed from the scene due to some strange activities he conducted. Illegal activities. The kind that any sane person would run away from – quickly and quietly. Anyway, he left behind some storage units that went into arrears, and were auctioned-off. A family friend invited us over to take a peek and see what the guy had

Back from the Coast, & the MedCallOutfitter Kit

I was out West with the better half, recharging our batteries. We had a refreshing time walking the shores and experiencing that peace we find on the sands, watching the sun go down, and listening to the waves at night.

But now we’re back, and some work has lined up for us. This last week, we had the opportunity to examine the specialized MedCallOutfitter Kit™, created by MedCallAssist™. This kit is more than a collection of First-Aid items in a

$5 per Gallon - Fond Memories?

What would you say if I were to ask you, “Would you ever wish for gas at $5 per gallon? Well, I’m asking. I heard a report today that described the fuel needs present in China and India. It stated that by next year, they very well could be demanding the importation of oil at a rate larger than what the world can provide to them.

From “Fueling the Dragon – China’s Race into the Oil Market”

With 1.3 billion

Gas Prices Going Up. Now What?

Here’s a link to a AAA gas price site. The Daily Fuel Gauge Report. Prices momentarily topped $5 /gallon in southern California. The trend is up. The L.A. Times wrote in January that….

“Not only are we worrying about the end of the world in 2012 — thanks, Maya calendar makers — but this also may be the year of the gas-pocalypse, analysts warn. That’s because gasoline prices are the highest ever for the start of the year, and they’re
