Tout Us for a Chance to Be Featured On TV!

There’s a little Prepper in all of us. We want to know what you do to prep – whether it’s preparing for a night on the town, taking your kids to school or hunkering down for the end of the world. Think about things you do to prep in daily life, from the mundane to the important and share them with us. The videos we like best will be featured during the season finale of Doomsday Preppers!

You can submit your Tout to us here – but don’t wait too long, the deadline is April 18th!

    My family and I have decided that true preppers won’t let anyone into their world, to let you know where we are, or what we have, but I like the show and watch it regularly. (some good new ideas to think on) However, I think your assessors are too hard on some of the preppers. Each person’s idea of survival is different than others, I hope we all survive. Peace.

    Could one of your preppers explain how they protect their food stores from rodents and other wildlife. I enjoy the program, and look forward to new each episode. Perhaps my concern about food contamination could be better addressed by your experts.
    It’s the little things that I worry about. Thank you for your time.

    I’ve watched every show so far and I have seen some really great ideas. I don’t know who these “experts” are that say things like: “EMP’s are very unlikely to happen” or “An economic collapse isn’t likely to happen in our live time”. The “experts” the National Geographic Channel is talking to must be a bunch of idiots. We just experienced an economic depression not seen since the 1930’s. We have experienced solar flares that are only going to get worse. We have crazy dictators around the world who would love to blow us up or explode a missile over our country. Instead of talking to the “experts” from organizations like: The RAND Corporation, The Southern Poverty Law Center, and other government funded organizations, have your “experts” look at history and current events. Unfortunately, you would have to be a millionaire to prep “perfectly” for every situation. Prepping is a great idea and can save your life in time of need. But to have your “experts” lead people in the wrong direction on events that are likely to happen, is very irresponsible and could create a undesired backlash on The National Geographic Channel and its parent company. I love the work The National Geographic Channel does and produces. But wisdom must be in the equation. Thank you for your time.

    We have a adult daughter who is type 1 diabetic and is insulin dependent. Could you have a show that specifically talks about prepping for a long term disaster for medically needy people and how to prepare for the worst. Her doctors say that medicine will always be available. We can’t take that chance and want to do something in the event any type of long term disaster could happen.

    I want to let the woman who preps by putting food inside the door and under the bed, that the food can get moldy quick. She use the bathroom door and she did not put the soup packets in sealed air tight bags. Then she has to hang a bag of silica to keep them dry. And everything dry that she has saved will require water. It is best to have a big supply of water or buy wet food, like pastas and soups and rotate regularly (eat and replace before they expire. If she has a water source she has to make sure the water will not be privatize. All water ways will be fenced or they will keep the water from flowing down to urban areas. Remember the wealthy of the country, the top 20% controls now 93% of the wealth and they can afford it. The bottom 80% shares only 7% of the wealth and will just die first without water. So, unless you are on the top 20% of the population you will not survive without water.

    To the person with a daughter who has type 1 diabetes. You have to have enough meds on hand like insulin. Some insulin has to be kept refrigerated. So know where can you get dry ice fast. You need a doctor that can give her an extra prescription for a big supply. In case of a really big disaster the pharmaceutical companies my be damaged or destroyed. And I hate to scare you but I know someone (I am diabetic too) that say the first onse who would get meds and the military and the wealthy. The wealthy can afford everything. So keep money aside and something you can barter with.

    I find this program bordering on intrusiveness, these folks are in the right mindset, yet they toss themselves out there willfully… first of all they are fools, and NG is horrendous for putting it out there, these folks and many others have lives to live, normally, without interference, now…yet again, the media invalidates the efforts of the good, thanks you jackasses…

    we watch your show continueously and my husband came up with an idea for you all. first of all you all should help families that don’t have the money to really prep for anything that if something were to happend, like food ,under ground bunkers,and essencials. then air it for all the viewers to see and watch ratings go up. were one of those families that live pay check to pay check that can’t aford to really prep like we want to thats how we came up with that idea. second you all should take and give out preps to people that call in and guess a question that you guys ask like be number 10 caller or something like that and get a food prep package or something of that sort. i think that would help alot of people get started with thier preping. thanks for your time. love the show. youv;e got my e-mail.

    My family is prepping against prepper panic. ‘Preppers’ all over the US are selfishly hording food, money and other important resources lowering availability and making cost skyrocket due to speculation and demand.

    On my family’s farm, we raise, grow and process our own foods and pump our own water from a well. We are also learning how to up-cycle, recycle and take care of medical emergencies and hygiene without modern implements. We believe that during most disaster situations, our preps will suffice in pulling MOST people together to work towards a unified survival goal.

    When the preppers emerge from their bunkers they’ll be hungry and we’ll have the food to feed them.

    Once the prepper’s storage runs dry after ‘any’ disaster, natural or man made, they will happily put down their firearms, come out of their bunkers and seek help. We’ll be waiting for them.

    I love that people are really trying to be prepared. Storing more than 200 gallons is a waste, I have long lasting filters to clean any water source five years of clean water in the space of 20 gallons of water. How do you shower if you only have say 4000 gallons. These people o the show are camera happy. I have a friend that has 400,000 rounds of ammunition. ten tons of food military equipment, just to start just for his family. I got invited in because of my sniper talents and field medical ability. I think if you do not have atleast 25 personel + family you have only a small chance with the issues that you will face. I am 44 yrs. old and have been training since I was 8. I have family spread out all over the USA. This country will be the last one to have this issue. These people are so concerned with one issue the will miss the mark completely if they don’t seek professional help.Your experts are WAY to lenient on there assessment. May God protect us all and my weapon never jam.Why have 60 weapons with little ammo why not 2 or 3 ad lots of ammo unassembled for longer shelf life. I did not see one person properly training for the multitude of problems that could arise.

    Yh this is more a suggestion for the cook family on the wheels of theyr cart. on the sides of the wheel where the spokes are he should put a plate behind the wheels and connecting some fins on it so instead of using the paddle with two people you can use the wheels each turning on each so to propel your self through easily with no wobble and mabye a boyancy aid on the front handle so its not uder the waer and would reduce drag

    I think that a lot of ‘preppers’ go a little too far and as such the fact that our world is actually in trouble gets ignored by many–simply because so many go to the extreme. We have a contingency plan if and when the power goes out, which is more of a ‘when’ to me than an ‘if’. We don’t have huge stockpiles, but keep our supplies limited so that we can be free to move as needed. We are fortunate to live in an area where lakes and wildlife are abundant. Having said that, I believe that Biblically we are in the last days and I am working on publishing a book discussing the closing prophecies of Jesus. Links can be found for free at or

    Do you have a savings account? Do you have insurance (on anything- car, apartment)? Then you are prepper! What is prepping? Storing resources in the event there is a resource denial situation. Further, when your family & friends are prepared, then you are in a position to help others. Our GROUP has done exactly that.

    I’m preparing for the day the United States government turns its military and police on the citizens to establish a dictatorship. Possibly when there’s a presidential candidate that doesn’t think 8 years is enough. Chances of survival are slim in a situation like this, but I’d rather go out fighting than taking orders from Big Brother and the Political Elite.
