IIRC, the guy on the 4-wheeler ended up being declared psychologically. . .unstable. . .and lost his ability to own firearms.

I just watch the reruns when I am in my chair with the laptop.
The big girl with the large pantry who can speak Togala and had a prepper lunch really had some great ideas. Initially they made her look stupid.
Then the heavy guy with the Kevlar that road the 4 wheeler has some great vids after then. I use his hand warmer method for doing my buckets.
I will paste a link to show you. Take the best and leave the rest.

I don't give a rat's ass about the few meager crumbs of slightly cool stuff I might sometimes see on the occasional episode. The amount of harm DP is doing to the whole prepper movement can't be ignored or dismissed as non-consequential, since there ARE many fully demonstrable consequences happening as a result of that show.

You can do what you want. You can watch what you want. But I will continue to speak out against that despicable show for what it is. 

And the best I can hope for is that someone somewhere comes up with a BETTER show to out-voice the slanted hatchet job of DP.

Ya I saw that. But he is fighting it.
Just because the government says something doesn't mean its true.

Remember if you like your plan you can keep your plan.
If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.
Read my lips no new taxes.

Veterans are all domestic terrorists too because they have all been trained in paramilitary activities and are a threat to the country.

So take the government with a grain of salt.

Well, keep in mind that there are often more than one side to a story.  It's not like Infowars, Daily Paul, and other alternative "news sources" don't have agendas of their own to which they twist stories.

Watch the original video, listen to his own words, watch his own actions (yes, I realize they were twisted around by the producers of DP, but. . .he said them and he WANTED to be on the show, in fact. . .he APPLIED and promoted himself enough that the producers saw and selected him, no one twisted his arm to be on the show. . .he wanted his 15 minutes of fame and wanted to show off to the world his XXXXL combat gear and pit-chihuahua).

Just as you shouldn't automatically accept anything from the gubmint as Gospel, neither should you presume the words of the anti-gubmint sensationalists are any better.

I agree there are 2 sides Professor.
I watch stuff with a grain or a pound of salt.
Something I think the show has done is bring supplies into more of our local stores. I may just now be noticing them but my local hardware stores and Wal-Mart's have larger inventories of stuff in bulk as well as solar panels and such,

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. I just knew that guy was a piece of poo (see my previous posts about him). Hope he stays in longer than a week. And I hope his pregnant wife gets rid of him (but I doubt it).

Yeppers. I have boycotted that show for a long while now.

Cedar - who has boycotted BurgerKing since 1985.

EDIT: Just found this.. "Doomsday Preppers" is a reality show that features people often described as survivalists stockpiling food and firearms, getting ready for the fall of society and a lawless future in which individuals must fight to stay alive.

Pierce county investigators say it was those claims, and Smith's brazen use of firearms on camera that landed him back in jail. "What led us to this guy was himself. He put himself on TV and in newspaper articles and he did things that scared the neighbor," said Troyer.

Smith is a level one sex offender following his conviction in King county in 2009, but he has not registered with law enforcement since his move to Pierce county. Troyer said he could face an additional charge of failing to register as a sex offender.

lol, justice served with Mr. Marauder...

I despise this show and what it's done to the preparedness community.

I do wish there were good preparedness shows out there...Ive always thought about trying to put together a preparedness/homesteading roku channel...just dont know if it would be worth the investment or if enough preppers do the roku thing enough to make it worth it.

I'm sure DP is doing some creative editing to enhance the stupidity of the people featured.

I agree that they go out of their way to make normal people with good ideas appear looney but that was probably not the case with this jackass. Where do we start? The practice c-section in the barn, the homemade body armor, announcing he plans to rob everyone?

Just started watching new season of this love the episode called ( you said it was nonlethal) had food forest top the charts almost. And got to thinking of all the little gizmos it has shown. Like a portrait with a weapon in it by the door.
Post if you can remember any trick or gizmo that had you go that's not a bad idea.

I know i am way behind on this show, but i do not have cable tv and mostly watch youtube and netflix. Well this show just got put on netflix. At first i was excited to check it out thinking it would be cool and full of all kinds of idea's. Only to find out the show is more about making fun of preppers and finding the biggest wack jobs out there. This show is a real piece of work.  I am losing my faith that any tv channel other than discovery can produce a quality show. I have watched the first two seasons so far and can't believe some of the idiots they found who are willing to go on tv and act like idiots.

You are where we were when they first started the series.
It really ticks me off how these "Reality" shows only motive is to belittle good hard working people by showing every nutjob they can find.
And there have been some real doozies on that show.

We watch and rate the people and what they do. Some ideas are good. Like the guys that own the western park using there food stand to hide orders.10 cans for the store 2 for us.
But there location is blown big time.  But once in a while they show something good.
