I wouldn't really wanna live in a post-apocolyptic world. What's the point of living if you are stuck in a bunker or basement the rest of your days? To each his own.

I've watched a few. I have no plans to become a prepper but I do consider it prudent to be prepared in case an ice storm, tornado or similar event knocks out my power for a week and the show has given me a few ideas about how to better prepare for such a localized and limited catastrophe.

I think it is a crock of sh##. Prepared for a weather emergency is one thing but beyond that is looney.

I'm all for being prepared, but those folks have gone off the deep end, down to the bottom, and aren't comin' back up. I've lived in places where it was prudent to keep a week or two worth of food on hand, and a shotgun by the door (high country winters, and bears, respectively), but if the world ever does come to an end, the preppers won't survive much longer than the rest of us.

I watched it last night and the idiot shot his thumb off.
I think some of what they do is interesting, but I don't think I would go as far as to buy gas masks and years worth of food. Wouldn't mind having all those guns and ammo though.

Yeah phshooter, I was not too impressed. Set a good example for his kids huh? Prepping for a flood or earthquake is one thing. The end of the world? I don't get it. They spend sometimes 30K on that stuff! That's a decent truck they can enjoy now!

Anybody see or read "The Road?" I agree with wvboy that I have no desire to live in that kind of post-apocalyptic environment. I'd just as soon go on to heaven and be done with it.

The preppers are intriguing. There's just enough sense in it to make you think, "you know, maybe I should...." for a second before you decide it's on the wrong side of crazy.

It would be great to have a "bunker" or something with a week's worth of supplies (and an indoor shooting range to pass the time), but beyond that is pointless. If the world ends in my lifetime I'll count that as "early release". Like Scratch, I can't wait to see what people start doing toward the end of this year. Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups!

I think it is a little bit disturbing, what I am afraid of is similar events to when the Hale-Bop commet came by and a group of people following a somewhat derranged man committed suicide. With all the growing hype through the media I am afraid people may end up getting hurt.
