Most Preppers That I have seen posting on the internet have it wrong (IMO). There is more to preparing than learning how to protect you and your own.



Yes, you need to know how to survive but you also must learn how to be valuable to others. Maybe a skill that will be useful or having knowledge to share. Those that hole up in fortress and forsake others my survive for the short term but in the end they will be shunned and thought of as crazies. The people that they refused to participate with will in turn ignore them.



Be prepared but a big part of preparing is learning how to be of help to those around you. Take CERT training, it is about helping.



One of the first things we were taught in CERT was that to be able to help, first you (and you family) must survive and be safe. Then you can help but do your best to stay safe while you do it.. Put out the effort to help but don't risk your own safety to do it.



If you're not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem. Don't turn your back on those in need.

I have never seen the show but can imagine. You should have food water available for your family in the event of storms etc. Good idea to have flashlight extra blanket in car in winter. Have first aid kit if you need it. Keep gas in your car in case you have to go some where in a hurry but the other stuff is nuts bomb shelter etc

I think most of them prep so much that they forget to live today and that is sad

Best Answer

So true, it takes so much time to do all they do, makes you wonder if they are in to anything else.

Somehow the title read as Doomsday Peppers on my small BBerry screen! I was very intrigued as I'm about to graduate up from jalapenos to something more hotter on my nachos this weekend. Family party. Made me laugh.
