In today’s podcast, Sam Coffman reviews last night’s “Doomsday Preppers” show (National Geographic channel) –
Sam gives his own feedback on the preppers that were featured in this show, as well as some of the concepts involved in their method of prepping. Aside from talking about the details of each individual prepper and some various feedback on their plans, he also talks about:
- bird alarms as a method of early warning in a rural environment
- lifestyle adjustments for the first family of primitive skills enthusiasts for prepping
- over-population as a possible disaster scenario and why it works well
- firearms' role in survival
- living off the 'fat of the land'
- surviving in a bunker: what happens when they have to inevitably emerge from the bunker?
- changing a culture of 'distraction' to ensure a positive survival of the species
- security: humans vs. machinery
- prepping for martial law: what this means
- water: what is the bare minimum per person needed, and how much for comfort?
- what is to be gained through sniper tactics in a survival situation?
- the difference between these prepper's everyday lifestyle compared to what they are prepping for
There are two survival courses coming up that deal specifically with survival in all types of situations.
