Thanks

Even though it was a bit sensationalist I learned a lot from watching what these families were doing and the comments of the "experts". Not sure I fancy fish every night for the rest of my life though!

The above indirect link appears to have been taken down.

YouTube Preppers Featured

At least two of the preppers featured, David and Scott, have terrific YouTube channels worth checking out if you're looking for inspiration and/or assistance with your preps.

https://www.youtube.com/user/southernprepper1

https://www.youtube.com/user/engineer775

SoutherPrepper1 has a military background and long term experience prepping a rural homestead. Lots of ideas regarding security, food storage, and potential problems. Famous in the YouTube prepping community for starting the "scenario" videos, using fictional stories from life 'after the collapse' as a teaching aid.

Engineer775 is the leader of a church and farmer with a rural homestead that he is continuously working to make more self-sufficient. Whereas SouthernPrepper1 is very focused on stockpiling sustenance, Engineer775 is more focused on being able to produce sustenance during the collapse. As his username suggests, he is quite handy with tools, and unique in the YouTube prepper community for his knowledge and experience with wood gasification.

thank you

Thank you to the preppers and congratulations to these guys for their outstanding effort.

Not only have they prepped well, but they are clearly decoupling from the derivative and commodity driven pricing structure.

The inflationary tendencies will passover these families because they have grown actual resources and actual capabilities.

Congratulations to them. It would take my family 5-10 years to match these guys.
