New prepper TV Show: “Doomsday Prepper”

Alright everyone – I am really excited to watch this new TV show Monday night at 10:00pm (here on the east coast).

The show is called “Doomsday Preppers” and of significance in this episode is the highlighting of two people I am familiar with – SouthernPrepper1(David) and Engineering775(Scott) from YouTube. I recently spent the day with these two great guys and I am very excited for them with this opportunity. The show illustrates the importance of preparing for all aspects of life if they were to be put into a survival situation and touches on everything from food, water, shelter, defense, stress management and even entertainment.

Via the National Geographic website: Unique in their beliefs, motivations and strategies, explore the lives of four families preparing for the end of the world as we know it. From bunkers to fortified off-the-grid locations, these doomsday preppers will go to whatever lengths they can to make sure they are prepared for any of life’s uncertainties. And with our expert’s assessment, they will find out their chances of survival if their worst fears became a reality.

Looks to be very interesting.

  1. When I heard him say in the beginning: “I have about six or seven thousand dollars in food.” My first reaction was to think: “That’s a darn good start!”

  2. Thanks for posting this. It looks like I missed it, but I will be checking out the clips when I get a chance. It looks like it is not going to be a series, but I think it would be interesting to keep an eye on it.

  3. That was well worth watching. While they focused on how each family was kind of focused just on one kind of disaster, they didn’t have a bunch of hokey experts debating whether they should prepare or not. Instead, it was practical advice on how to make their preps better. Kudos to Nat Geo. I think they got it right.

  4. Watched it last night, recorded it too. What a great show. Every angle, and “expert” assessment of the people’s preparedness. Will be watching in the future if there are more.

  5. Loved the show and watched it twice – it re-ran early morning Tuesday. Hope it becomes a series. Trying to find when it will be on next so I can tell others to watch. I have some of the things but not all and have told certain others if trouble comes, to rush here and bring guns. I’ll feed, they protect. I happen to think we should all be prepared for a pandemic though first so get in food supplies for enough time to allow the pandemic to pass.

  6. A question for you kind of off subject but in the show they talked about buying gold and silver in case of economic collapse . Where is the best place to buy silver in your opinion ?

    • Robert W –

      Best place to buy gold or silver? I have no idea. I am not a big believer in gold and silver.

      Do some Google searches. I know that there are brokers you can purchase from that charge a very small percentage over “spot”.

      Thanks – Rourke

  7. I suspect if the economic system crashes, even gold and silver will not have much value. People will want food and clothing and water. At least in the beginning. And then new money will develop based on consumables. Or a total barter system.

  8. i plan on watching it again it was alsome but i think it would take a lot of money that most including ne do not have like all them guns that must cost a arm and a leg

  9. I’ll second that motion for a series. There is a lot I still have to learn and maybe they would have a lot I could afford to incorporate into my plans

  10. You only need two guns that you are very good with. One for long range, and one for short. The best gun is one that fits your hand and you know how to use. It doesn’t have to be expensive.

    Either that or get very good running shoes.

  11. Do we know when this show will reair? I missed it and would like to see it. Also, wasn’t there a similar show on (another channel) a few months ago? All I remember was that it was a family (preppers) who had built a manure fueled pickup.

  12. Excellent show! I only caught the last 2/3 of it but much good info. In light of current events I find myself falling into my USMC mind set….More beans, More bullets, More band-aids!
