First of all I would never let the popuiation know what I have. Just fame I wonder. I am getting a bad feeling about the show. To me the show is start to show more guns and kids with guns playing into the part of making us look crazy, which gives the look we are all gun crazy out there. I am not sure about the show anymore. I think we are doing ourselves more harm than good.

I have to agree. When i first started watching, it was fun to see new ideas and the way others prepped. But now, the people features are kinda getting wierder. The show seems to highlight their quirkiness and tries to make them seem outside the norm of society.
Not sure i like the way it frames prepping anymore. We are not all obsessed crazies, waving around guns and building $100,000 underground bunkers and compounds.

I'm with this.

After a couple minuets it gets too dumb to watch.
99% of it is not the least entertaining
I would not like to be portrayed as one of that crowd. It just doesn't give justice, only ratings.

As stated in other threads they pick the "weirdo's" to make a show for ratings. Where in the world to these people come up with this kind of money say to build a castle? Or bury $100,000.00 bunker and still live everyday. We must be doing something wrong for sure.

im going to say it, the daughters were cute.
The deadwood thing was odd but interesting.
The castle thing was just some eccentric nuts fantasy.
It really started gettig dumb with all 10 kids (with no firearms training) running around and shooting everything.
Id be scared to be a natgeo camera operator.

Both pretty eccentric as one building a castle & the other a fort. The castle guy, his oldest son is 41 but the father never took the time to teach him to shoot. So much for security.

The first rerun, the family in Va seemed to have no practical application of anything. Lady was opening cans of FD food & mixing into masion jars but not even vacsealing them. They had a big cargo trailer trailer for bug out so why not just leave it packed? Would save them an hour. And the inflatable rafts were a really, really bad choice. 1-1.5 hour to inflate them. Give me a break. If they were going to do such why not atleast run an air pump off their vehicle? But canoes ontop of the vehicle & cargo trailer would have been a better choice or sea-going kayaks. Due to construction, kayaks would be time consuming to load.

I look at it like this.

If they are portraying preppers a certain way, then the normal(?) preppers can go unnoticed. I can be among my fellow neighbors, and they are none the wiser. If I don't act like a "wacko prepper", I must NOT be one. Right? lol

I sure got a kick out of the man and woman that built there house out of the containers . . . What made me laugh and yell at the tv all in one motion, Was their test against arms to see if the steel would hold up to an attack. . . Lets the very corner of the container ( The strongest part of the container??) With a .22? At 100 yards?? Well of course its going to stop it dummy!! The funniest part is they were all excited a reinforced steel corner sopped their 100 yard .22 shot but the sides are MUCH thinner AND they had a MASSIVE window right next to that point?? COME ON!!

I like a lot of the info that can be received from the show but dam near ALL of them are idiots, Like the Apache (Who was also on spikes the deadliest warrior for the apaches?? SO is he just an actor?) Anyways he said something really funny at the end. . . And I quote " Well I will survive as long as I need to!. . . I will survive until I die!!" LMFAO uhmm DUH?\

Those girls in the castle were cute but the blonde was smokin and I mainly feel that way because her total attitude towards all of it.
