Excited about the brand new episode of Doomsday Preppers tonight at 9P, Let Her Rip? We only have a few more new episodes remaining this season—and with time running out—we thought we’d help out with some interesting facts and information about what it can take to be a prepper.

Enjoy!

    Sorry, but the last thing on my mind if shtf would be finding a dirty hooker with zombie crabs. I think a dude that knows how to make moonshine would be more valuble. You can use it for fuel, explosives, trading/bartering ect.

    Preparation for a disaster should be a priority for everyone. The more prepared the population is the less danger everyone will be in during and after a disaster. Furthermore,
    disaster recovery can start immediately if everyone is prepared and able to help out.

    I notice on the growing chart in zone 9 first freeze Feb-1 and the last freeze Nov-30. Should it be. First freeze Nov-30 and last Freeze Feb-1 ?

    There is no Doomsday,, the eath will survive and man will survive,,What there will be is an Apocolypse(very hard times) for man..This will be due to man made(Nuclear, Biological) warfare or Nature(I was in the middle of hurricane sandy) we are very small and weak compared to nature.,,.Be ready to survive the best you can,,,,dont depend on the government,, dont depend on anyone but yourself,, these times are coming,, alot of countries have nuclear weapons and are hostile toward America,,,,be prepared,,,, “luck favors the man whos better prepared “

    The show Doomsday Preppers is doing America a great service by at least getting people thinking about coming possible catastrophes…I personally believe their will be a Nuclear Apocolypse,,there are numerous countries hostile to America that have nuclear capability or are looking to obtain it,,,,Islamic fundamentalist hate the U.S. as does Iran and North Korea..dont forget 911, and World trade center,, I knew people killed in 911…Lets not forget Nature,, man has been abusing the environment for many years..I was in the middle of Hurricane sandy,, we are very small comared to nature,,, be the best prepared you can.

    Having dealt with an Ice storm 4 yrs ago and the loss of power for 4 days, I began prepping, I am almost comfortable with my preps, a few more items to purchase and I will be satisfied, a friend who works in the stock market told me we came close to a financial collapse a few yrs ago, within hrs of it, I have bought precious metals and have begun recycling them out of old electronics, yes it takes a lot, but it’s money.

    The Little Yellow Chart is interesting, but it will do you no good if your dead! Many people fail to understand or realize exactly what happens during a large-scale disaster, which can be initiated as the result of many events (beyond the scope here), such as the failure of the national energy grid due to EMP or Large Geomagnetic Storm: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2382527/A-near-miss-Earth-Devastating-electromagnetic-pulses-knocked-power-cars-phones-occured-weeks-ago.html

    The reality is: There are very few legitimate survival paradigms that will get you through such an event; the good news is there IS a way… here is an article that discusses the risks and solutions:

    Are the freeze dates correct? Look backwards to me, but I could be reading them wrong. Area 9 first freeze usually around Nov 30 and last freeze around Feb 1st.

    Has anyone considered adding a blacksmith to the professions list? Weapons will need to be repaired and reformed. A gunsmith can fix weapons but can he make the broken parts that will eventually be needed?

    As I was reading the livestock chart it suddenly dawned on me that someone forget to add horses. I am guessing that yes they may take up more food and space, but transportation wise that may become an option once all the gas is depleted or just unavailable. I would love to see the figures on it.
