Doomsday Preppers

I am seeing promos for Doomsday Preppers Tuesday night on National Geographic channel. Looks like a vintage airstream used as a mobile grow lab. I'm not really into that use, but I might just have to check the episode out to see the Airstream. Looks like a 60's Bambi or Caravel.

We have mobile drug labs all over the gulf coast, but have never seen one in an Airstream.

Here is the link to the promo on their website...Link

Dr. Dave may have the answer to obama care, but I bet he won't go far with that trailer when times need it most. I bet his frame and floor are rotten and about to fall apart! Wonder if they took any points away for that. Also, it's a 65, not a 69.

I think Dr. Dave spends a lot of time sampling his herbs.

I agree with that. Too much weed and mushrooms is making him paranoid to think doomsday is coming.

The Trailer Park Boys use an early 50's Airstream as a grow house in one of the seasons. Be forewarned there is a lot of bad language in this clip…

I guess it would depend on your definition of "doomsday"?

This is true perception is everything but an airstream would make a poor end of the world shelter and this is only because the storage is very limited load capacity would prevent much in the way of food and water. Let alone clothes and bullets not many trailers would be choice unless you go up to the overlander or larger! With my family I would be going nowhere. Jmho

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the idea that a grow lab has anything to do with prepping for doomsday. Except maybe that sampling one's own wares will bring one that much closer to one's own personal doomsday! In which case, the only prep needed is to live a life that ensures that your personal doomsday's express elevator takes you up to the Pearly Gates and not down to the other place.
