A natural disaster, an economic collapse, an unexpected harsh winter — for every person, there’s that moment when they discover that the world and everything they hold dear can be taken away. And that is why they prep. And this season, Doomsday Preppers digs deep into the basics of prepping. Forget expensive, elaborate bunkers and builds — this is just good ol’ prepping in its simplest form.
The new season kicks off tonight with former U.S. Department of Defense employee Jimi Falcon, who is prepping for a potential World War III. Because of dwindling resources and failing economies, Jimi believes a major world power will invade and occupy the United States. After leaving his job and venturing out to a secluded stretch of land high in the Rocky Mountains 25 years ago, Jimi began stockpiling food, water and other resources. After learning about a family that nearly froze to death because of their lack of preparedness, Jimi built his home to withstand the extreme climate of Montana, where temperatures can get as low as negative 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
Now, Jimi spends his days prepping and testing his system of bug out cave locations, drying meat to create beef jerky, training his cats to hunt, and panning for gold. He feels that his ability to survive and thrive in the extreme Montana climates will enable him to prosper post-World War III.
