It’s already started, hate mail for posting the preview of Season 2 of Doomsday Preppers. Those who are sending the emails, probably didn’t read the post. So let me try to be brief…just in case they decide to read this one.
You should be able to learn no matter what the situation. I feel I can learn when I’m attending a different type of church than mine, even if I don’t agree with the theology. I have learned in staff developments, even when the topic was boring or the presenter needed to tighten up their style. I have learned from leaders, those who I would willingly follow and those who made mistakes that I learned “not what to do.”
So again, take Doomsday Preppers and learn from it regardless of what you think about the sensational aspect of the show.
Here’s how you win one of two Doomsday Preppers t-shirts, after watching the premiere, come back here and post one thing you learned. It could be something you learned, something you want to learn or something you learned you shouldn’t do! Comments will be closed on Saturday morning, Nov. 17, 2012 and I will then use a random number generator to choose the number of the post that wins. Remember, to be counted in the drawing, you have to post something you learned.

I learn that I don’t want any one knowing my prepay and that I wouldn’t wanna look like an idiot being on that show.

Watched the new season start and learned that no matter how much water you have store even more and have a way to replenish it quickly and easily. While I have a lot of water stored and ways to filter water to make it drinkable I need an easy replish site.

Ive learned there are to many people that don’t take this serious.

I learned that no matter what commutation and operational security is paramount they give way too much info on their plans

Have a sense of what you’re prepping for, run drills – not just scenarios – and have backups for your backups…

I learned that there are many scenarios that require a person to be prepared. Some seem believable and some seem far fetched. Regardless of the merit of a potential disaster scenario, the key is self reliance. The goal of not panicking when the shtf and the government doesn’t show up for a week a month or whenever. The fact that as parents we have a moral obligation to prepare just in case so out kids are ok. Keep up the good work.

I was surprised to learn that heating a room if made with inverted glass bottles could actually be efficient!!!! Other than that, water water water.

there was a great rabbi who lived over 1200 years ago who said “who is a SMART person? one who can learn from anyone.”

I learned that most people prep in areas that have better seasons than where I live, Kodiak Alaska. in a survival situations I can’t grow food-without people stealing it, people will hunt the deer close by to extinction fast! hunting will have to be more than just a day trip. the last thing I learned is being in the military and moving every 4 years makes it hard to stock up. I have to get rid of most of my prepped items every time I move due to weight limits.

Water, Food, Ammo. Get it now.

I learned nothing new watching the premire. If anything I feel like most preppers believe they are prepared and ready for any situation because they have food, water, guns and ammo. What about being mentally prepared? How many of these preppers will break down when reality of the situation sets in or if they must take the life of another?

I learned that you can have all the food in the world but without fuel supply you can’t do much with it.
jackson mcintyre November 15th, 2012 at 8:44 pm
that i should prepare more water and food and of course a transportation system
Daniele Williams November 15th, 2012 at 11:18 pm
I learned that I have really drifted off track with my prepping. Watching. The show this week reminded me that I have to get back to planning, prepping, and organizing with my family.

Random # Generator chose #1 and #3. I will contact you through email to get your info.
Thanks for participating!
Tony Watson November 17th, 2012 at 11:35 pm
I learned that even if you are prepared you can always improve and grow more in your preparedness.

I’ve learned so much from Doomsday Preppers on NATGEO. I’ve just recently become a prepper, and when I mention it to others they often times will laugh about it. People don’t take natural disasters or manmade calamities very serious, even with the world in the state that it is currently in. There are so many natural disasters going on regularly, along with the problems that we as a society have created ourselves, i.e., nuclear devices, etc. I learned how simple it would be for terrorist to make a dirty bomb, with radioactive materials being as common as they are, such as in hospitals and the construction field. I’ve learned to take things serious, and I’ve also learned that life, and our planet Earth, as great as it is, isn’t as stable and as safe as we think it is. I’ve learned I need to constantly improve my skills and preparedness at any given chance possible. I love Doomsday Preppers, http://www.prepperwebsite.com, and all the great information that is out there and available. On top of that I think that is an awesome t-shirt and would love and embrace it if given the opportunity. Thanks! Stephen Mitchell, Decatur, IL

didnt realize it was over 🙁 oh well.
Todd - Prepper Website November 28th, 2012 at 10:13 pm
Due to the fact that #3 didn’t respond in a timely manner, I hit up the # generator again and hit #13. So, counting from the top, excluding #1 and #3, Tony Watson wins. I will contact you by email.
