Description

Preppers come in all shapes and sizes - men and women, young and old, they live and work like most Americans. But their ultimate goal in life is preparing for the end. While stockpiles of food and weapons may seem over the top preparations to some, for doomsday preppers they represent basic responsibility and peace of mind. They will go to whatever lengths deemed necessary to make sure they are prepared if basic services should falter, and chaos and violence become the order of the day.
