I recently saw a new series on national geographic called 'doomsday preppers'. It's basically a documentary on the lives on Americans that are preparing for doomsday scenarios ranging from natural disasters to depressions to total economic collapse and nuclear holocausts etc.
It's almost a bit of a piss take, but it got me thinking. Alot of people would just have a bit of a laugh and think 'what a bunch of clowns, this would never happen'. But what if something did? Now these guys are completely prepared, they've got everything from 2 years worth of water to bomb shelters to completely self sustainable green houses with fish water plants vegies fruit guns the works.
You may not have to take it to the extreme, but would it not be worth a few hours a week and a few thousand dollars to have a couple of weeks or months worth of food and water, in the event that something catastrophic, no matter how unlikely, actually did occur?
So I was just curious if anyone had commenced their own prepping to ensure yourself or your family have enough food and water to survive an unlikely but devastating event? I personally am beginning to think it wouldn't be such a crazy idea.
