    what i’d like to see is the poor preper? like a low income family with both parents working minimum wage manual labor jobs.
    love to see how you could prep without the funds to sink half a million dollars into it

  4. [...] Last year, I was asked to appear on National Geographic’s hit series Doomsday Preppers, which is a competition of sorts, where each Prepper is scored based upon their perceived skills in surviving a potential disaster.  I came away from that series with the highest score that had ever been given, and the title of ‘Best Prepper’: http://tvblogs.nationalgeographic.com/2013/03/20/and-the-best-prepper-is/ [...]

    IT IS APRIL 15,2013
    CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF THE PROGRAM “DOOMSDAY PREPPERS” IS STILL BEING AIRED—THE LAST TIME I HAVE SEEN IT ON TV WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF MARCH AND NOW CAN NOT FIND IT LISTED ANYMORE.
    I THINK THIS IS A GREAT PROGRAM TO HELP PEOPLE KNOW HOW TO SURVIVE A DISASTER OF MOST ANY
    KIND, IT NOT LIKE WE LIVE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE 1800′S WHERE PEOPLE KNEW HOW TO LIVE OFF THE LAND OR HOW TO PLAN AHEAD FOR BAD TIMES BY STOCKING UP ON WHAT IT WILL TAKE TO SURVIVE HARD TIMES THAT COME WITHOUT WARNING.
    IT REALLY MAKE ME PROUD WHEN MY GRANDSONS ASK
    QUESTIONS ON HOW TO DO THINGS FOR THEMSELVES
    SO THEY DO NOT HAVE TO DEPEND ON PEOPLE WHO THINK THAT BAD THINGS CAN NOT HAPPEN TO THEM
    AND THEN ARE THE FIRST TO BLAME SOMEONE ELSE FOR THEIR HARD TIMES WHEN EVERYTHING THEY NEED IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM IF THE HAD ONLY TOOK THE TIME TO LEARN ABOUT HOW TO USE WHAT
    HAS BEEN PROVIDED. I HOPE A LOT OF THE YOUNGER GENERATION IS TAUGHT ABOUT THESE THINGS BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL OF OUR FUTURE BECAUSE THERE ARE TO MANY POWER HUNGRY PEOPLE IN THE WORLD AND TO MANY THINGS STARTING TO FALL APART IN THE WORLD FOR IT NOT COME TO NO GOOD
    AND WE MUST BE PEPARED TO SURVIVE FOR IT.

    SORRY IF THIS HAS UPSET ANYONE BUT STOP AND THINK FOR YOURSHELF ON WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW AND WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN
    AND WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

    We really need to stop encouraging these people. They show the wrong way to prep. Community is how society will survive a disaster. Not shooting first. Not sequestering oneself in a bunker and hiding. Instead of rebuilding society and becoming a contributing member, these people are just going to wait for the inevitable. The amount of preps they have just means some may die later than others. A shoot first attitude? Seriously? Morons.

    On a side note;
    The preppers seem like each one is judged differently. What are the “judges” (Practical Preppers) on? One guy with 750 gallons of water does not score as high as a guy with 500? Last I checked, 750 was more than 500 right? Not to mention, they do not take into account how much this stuff costs. Not everyone can afford a 1200 square foot bunker folks.

    “The best Prepper” adds 18 months to his life before he croaks like the rest of us. Hardly seems worth it. But I guess if you don’t believe in God you’d do anything not to die.

    How can you say community is the best prepping when nowadays people walk right by each other when they need help and ignore each other ? Community died in America 40 years ago.. The old time neighborhood where people watch out for each other is gone..Its every person for themselves,, survival of fittest..,,Natures way.

    Yeah. It’s easy enough is to get angry, kill, take everything for yourself. What’s difficult is to find a way to survive together. Get over that freakin’ seperatist ego that makes us think we are more important than the “other.” Well guess what? There is no OTHER! We are in this together. What one does affects us all. Either we all survive or none of us will. Fukushima isn’t taking names. Climate change doesn’t play favorites, and it doesn’t matter how many guns you have, fish are still mutating after the BP spill. These people are the same as any banker hoarding $ while 7 million homes are foreclosed: and countung. It’s all about me and mine and f**k the rest! :(

  19. […] Capt. Bill is the author of The Nautical Prepper, which is a true account of some of his travels, experiences, and life with his family on remote islands for months at a time. Capt. Bill is an exciting example of today’s Renaissance Man, and timing was a factor in his life to provide such exciting opportunities to see and experience the world as few have others have. He is also an inventor, maritime consultant, and is currently engaged in writing a book about land-based bunker installations. Additionally, Capt. Bill and his team were awarded the highest Prepper score ever given in the history of the Nat Geo “Doomsday Preppers” and was deemed the ‘Best Prepper’ by National Geographic Doomsday Preppers. […]

    Great ideas! But no one yet seems to come up with the idea that we should not forget to”prep” our souls for the very LONG term. I like to store some things, but I still remember that sooner orlater I die. It’s inevitable, no matter what one does. I’d like to hear from someone who feels a chaplain is needed for the Preppers. Be sure to “prep” for eternity. Wise King Solomon wrote that “man goes to his L O N G home.”

[…] Season-two of National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers covered the survival paradigms of 43 different Preppers, including the castle people, who were given a score of ‘68’ by Practical Preppers, LLC, which put them in 19th place in a field of 43 Preppers. Coincidentally, my survival paradigm (The Nautical Prepper) was also featured in that same series (Season-2, Episode-15; ‘A Fortress At Sea’), where Practical Preppers, LLC awarded a score of ‘83’, which was the highest score in history of both season-1 and season-2 of Doomsday Preppers: http://tvblogs.nationalgeographic.com/2013/03/20/and-the-best-prepper-is/ […]
