SHTF/WROL scenario videos – thoughts?

YouTube’s SouthernPrepper1 has many, many helpful and educational videos to watch. Something unique he has done is create a series of fictional scenario videos which take place AFTER an event which left the country in a WROL situation. 


In case you are unaware what WROL stands for – Without Rule of Law. 

Below is a compiled list of all SP1 video’s. Others on YouTube jumped in and joined him in his story telling. You will have to search YouTube yourself for “scenario WROL” yourself as I just don’t have time to list them all.


I have enjoyed his videos and I hope he continues.

  1. I’ve been following Southerprepper1 since the begging and have learned a lot from his video’s. I really like some of the one’s he has done on retreat/homestead security.

  2. Southern Prepper 1 has plenty of other awesome videos besides this series, as you point out. I can’t tell you how many interesting things I’ve learned from his Channel.

  3. I watched about 3 and a half minutes of the first video and I already see a problem. He blocked off a small area with the gun and then counted the number of footprints in that area, which was 6. Then he divided by two to get three (concluding there must be three people). Unless those were some really short people or they walk really weird, that would be wrong! Considering the length of a person’s stride, there should only be on footprint per person in that area, not two!

  4. Another youtube member name of SuvivalPax also did a WROL video series. It was more of a video blog that was pretty decent of a suburbanite. It was a short series but very easy to relate to. Anyone know of any more out there that are decent?

  5. I’ve watched all 19 that you’ve posted. My question is, how do I find more of these in order? How can I tell which video is number 20 on youtube?

    • KM –

      I went through them all and put them by date uploaded to YouTube. That’s how I knew the order.

      It took a while.


  6. I took the time an watched them all. He definitely gave some good pointers on survival. I would like to know what military experience he has and how he knows so much. But, truthfully, most “Preppers” are not in his ideal situation (Living on a farm, with property to grow abundant food, hunt and fish. Or, just as valuable, to have neighbors or a community that bonds and works together). Overall, his videos were very informative. On very few occasions did I notice any contradictions. I could be mistaken. Anyway, I won’t attempt to critique his work. He is way ahead of our family!

  7. I have watched every one of them and for the most part really enjoyed them. He has some good information in them, especially for someone just starting out.

  8. He was in the Army and served in Iraq, if I remember correctly. This may not have been the starting point, but for sure was his big stepping off point. This according to his own words. I think…but could be wrong, but your seeing Army Infantry training. Either a Corporal or Sgt I’m guessing. Not just regular infantry much intensity to be a dirt worm. Even if he was a typical ground pounder, it wasn’t just the regular sq he was in. Meaning… not there just to draw a paycheck.

    I can see he struggles with his dreams of days past from time to time. I think not as much as before. Meaning..he’s seen a lot. I’ve been there.

  9. Capt. Michaels,

    Me for one, well I would just as well not experience any WROL situations. Remember being too afraid to crap, either that or plugged up with MREs?

    KM, Having so said, for the resources available and the consumable market intended, I thought So. Prepper’s videos outstanding. Sure, I wouldn’t have an extend dialogue with a freeloader, and especially not where I had food, but his intent is to teach a concept which he does well in the follow up on the field ‘phone. The good Captain and I would likely have rapidly turned the mooch into dog food and fertilizer especially if he intruded into where food was being processed. Again these videos are all about teaching points. We are all at different points in our lifestyle.

    Years ago, I purchased a bunch of field ‘phones and miles of wire. One can still find them cheap at times. Sixty years old and they still work well – of course they were made to go through a war. A few holes in the ground in overwatch areas that look like well just holes in the ground, telephones and wire, and one has the makings of great LP/OPs.

    We have maps and maps and charts and charts and when I relocated, my first order of business was to acquire a number of relevant topos. Those and overhead imagery behind a sheet of plastic and some grease pins are the makings of a command center. That with commo and willing personnel makes one much better able to comprehend and adapt to changing circumstances. Again, his teaching video on commo is well done and to the point.

    It is a shame some of the bigger companies in the prepper business didn’t put some resources into this project. With professional actors, the theme would make a good movie.

    You may know more about specific areas, but against the off chance he has something worthwhile, every prepper should watch these videos.
