David Morse, author of The Urban Survival Guide (13 week online training course) hit the nail on the head today with his approach to the National Geographic show “Doomsday Preppers”. Check out his tips to improve on the methods presented in the show: Water Lessons from Doomsday Preppers
Living in an area surrounded by ocean and dessert, water is a top concern and priority in our preparedness plan. We especially liked his recommendation for a water desalination system. Check out what David has to say here.
CNN is the latest media outlet to portray the “prepper” community as a bunch of paranoid eccentrics. What disturbed me more than the slant of the article itself was the number of negative comments made in response to it. And although someone out there may be in the market for a condo in the Vivos silo system, the vast majority of the “prepper” community is not.
