This is on NatGeo and they have a big liberal agenda - I am going to give it a shot and see how it goes.

watched both shows tonight, not bad had some good ideas, liked the shipping containers, but what about zoning? would be nice for underground storage. Nice he had some military/ex-military in his group good bug out plan, liked his attitude on what nat-geo said about his food being in one place.

Agreed.. I recorded both episodes but was only able to watch the first one before heading off to bed.. I thought the fella with the shipping container compound was pretty cool. The young kid looked like he wasn't into it though.. Anywho, some of the reasons for prep'n seem to be a little out there and get pointed out later in each segment. Case in point: The likelyhood of the poles shifting.. I know mother natures got some stuff going on and there are more quakes hitting the world than ever before, I just found their reason for prep'n a little lame... I think we've got a better chance of a zombie apocolyps than a polar shift

polar shifts do happen, it just doesn't happen over night. and I don't think south america is going to break off and head north.

The type of things that most of these people are prepping for will cover many different scenarios. It might be that the show producers are pinning them down to a particular calamity that way everyone doesn't just say it is all for when the SHTF.

I was surprised to see NatGeo take the whole thing pretty serious rather than just trying to make preppers look crazy. They had some good tips, and the knowledge some of those people had was impressive; even the hippy in L.A.

It was much better than I thought. Though the girl from Houston seemed really out of shape for someone who supposedly works out 4 hrs per day like she said. I swear she must know the producer because it didn't seem like she really had much going for her except a lot of stuff thrown into a second bedroom.

I saw both episodes as well. There was definitely some good ideas and info to see from most of it. Unfortunately with NatGeo being so liberal I definitely believe that their main goal is to try and poke fun at these people and make them look nuts. They did not specifically come out say anything like that it is just an overall feeling you get from what kind of questions they are asking them, to get their comments and opinions, and also just the way it is edited. I will keep watching because I believe there will still be good info to get from it, I just hope they don't start going too negative with the show and try to make any of us preppers look crazy.

I agree that I am VERY leery of NatGeo. We will see how it goes.
