    Doomsday Preppers - Do those nutters have any overlap with our nutters ?

    Just watched this series about 'survivalists' , Preppers who prepare for the end of civilisation.
    Fascinating, and its a ratings hit on the National Geographic channel.
    so,
    a question :
    is their any overlap between our hobby/madness and their hobby/madness ?

    I prefered The Good Life! That said, if we were in danger of flooding I would be swiftly 4 miles to the highest point in South Essex, and there I would be settling in with at least three days of food, a bottle or three, TV and a comfortable bed. Anything more lethal and it would be like being back in the Fifties and the Three Minute Warning of incoming Soviet nuclear missiles. What we weren't going to do in those three minutes!

      One of my 4 step-brothers, a very successful businessman, has a big, posh house, his own boat, swimming pool etc AND a nuclear bunker. Lives at the opposite end of the UK from me so I don't think I would reach his bunker in time, even if he were to offer me a place in it!

      I, too, loved 'The Good Life' but am well aware how few practical skills I could contribute to post-disaster survival.

      Three minutes, eh? Had forgotten about that!
      Carpe diem! :)

                  My view is-when the end of the world comes the lucky ones will be those who perish in the first second, the rest doesn't bear thinking about.
