Calling all doomsday preppers

Has anyone seen the TV show Doomsday Preppers?

My partner and I love watching that show and, as preppers ourselves, it’s interesting to us to find out what other people are prepping for.

People are scared. Something is coming.

As a nurse, I see things going really smoothly – until, in the blink of an eye, there’s a shit storm.

It’s a real worry sometimes.


Anyway, I would really like to hear other peoples’ views on prepping, especially if you are prepping too.

Why are you prepping?

What do you fear?

What should we all prep for?

What type of food – how to store water – best way to protect your family?

    Even though his post was written 2yrs ago, it’s evident he barely had an educated opinion of the state of world affairs even then. He should stick to watching TV shows.. what he considers ‘prepping’ is probably what we consider the basics for our annual 6wk long, off-grid trip up to the far north to snag some barra! He probably wouldnt last our 4 day drive hahaha

    Try AusPrep Forum for info or AsiaPrep Forum (that’s me).

    There are more disasters than Nubiru hitting the planet.

    There are: terrorist attacks, Cyclones, earthquakes, floods, volcanos, Tsunamis, fires, and others……..

    Doomsday Prepper TV Show shows an extreme side that is controversial and quite funny, although it isn’t relevant where I live in SE Asia where I have properties in HCMC, Mekong Delta (in Vietnam) and Taguig City (part of Greater Manila). I was posted to Northern Australia for 11 yrs and saw a number of floods destroy roads and cut off highway traffic and several Cyclones pass nearby where I had to give assistance.

    And when I was posted to Northern Australia it was mandatory to carry a HF Radio, SAT Phone, three days rations and 40lt of water, plus vehicle recovery equipment.

    Hope no one is affected by disaster but it great to be prepared.

    Mate, unless the alleged planetary mass of Nibiru or it’s authorised representative parks itself onto our fair continent I don’t particularly see any real case for doomsday prepping in this country. Actually if Nibiru hit here we wouldn’t need to do it either. That’s what we call in LE, a win-win situation.

    It’s funny watching a family of morbidly obese Americans jumping on a bus with their M4s pointed out the window whilst the father yells inaudible commands in between taking hits from his oxygen tank though.

    Final thought, having watched a couple of episodes of man vs wild, I understand I can drink my piss indefinitely as a means of hydration thus negating the bottled water conundrum.

    My best to all.
