Tonight on Doomsday Preppers, meet three preppers who plan to utilize natural resources to survive the disasters they fear.
Rick and his wife Jane moved from their suburban Florida home to the Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina. Rick is preparing for the destruction of America’s power grid by an EMP. He hosts a popular radio show and is well known web personality in the prepper community. In the last four years, Rick has turned his 53 acres of land into a prepper compound. Rick’s preps are centered around his secret garden, where food is grown in a circular system. The garden is camouflaged and can provide Rick and his wife with food indefinitely. He and his wife have countless amounts of livestock, bees, a year supply of food, and a stockpile of weapons. To protect himself from potential invaders, Rick creates pepper spray from hot peppers he grows in his garden. Rick runs his house on solar power and lives a completely self-sustainable lifestyle.
Jim Lebus lives alone in urban LA. Jim is preparing for anarchy following a major earthquake. Jim claims that growing up in a family of stunt actors has prepared him for life as a prepper. In the days following a disaster, Jim will bug out to a tree he has designed for such occasions. The tree is stocked with enough food, water and supplies to last him 2-3 days. Jim’s primary bug out spot is his home, which he has been heavily fortified. He has a 5-month supply of MREs, multiple water purification systems, multiple weapons including a paintball gun that fires incendiary rounds, and several cross bows. Jim is motivated to survive any situation no matter what it takes. He will do whatever it takes and is constantly planning bug out scenarios, although he prefers to keep his prepping lifestyle hidden from his family and friends.
16-year-old Jack Houston is not your average teenager. He is a young prepper living in Alexandria, Virginia with his mother and younger brother. After finding his father dead from an unexpected heart attack, Jack began prepping to protect his family. He is now preparing for a massive hurricane or super storm that will force him and his family from their home. A Boy Scout and JROTC member, he has formed the ultimate teenage prepping group with friends he’s known since he was six years old. Jack and his group go camping regularly where they practice their survival skills. Jack is adept at trapping, fishing, hunting, fire starting, and plans to teach his family and friends the survival techniques they need to survive a disaster. Jack also runs a website and YouTube channel where he posts survival videos.
