One of the ~preppers~ was, in contrast with most of the gun nuts profiled, a “New England liberal” who just wants to grow food and be nice to everyone
The show never said where specifically she lives but when I heard her pronounce “I probably canned…” as “I prahhhbebly kee-anned” I was like, calling it, Vermont or Western Mass. Turns out I was right! I looked her up through the magic of the internet and she is in Cummington MA (lol “Cummington” I know, next I’ll tell you about Belchertown) which is like a 45-minute drive from here. So I guess I know where I’m heading during the imminent financial collapse or hyper-inflation event or solar flare EMP or what have you. lol that’s the best part of this show, every single person is worried about and planning for a completely different event.
Oh I also really loved the Utah housewife who has stockpiled massive amounts of food, but not just any food, well-preserved food she can use to make gourmet meals. Because when society collapses she’s not giving up her four-cheese risotto. She also left her corporate job to teach self-defense classes to women, because in the event of whatever scenario she envisions, women would be particularly vulnerable. Which is like, okay clearly you are off with some of your concerns, but realizing that most men pose a danger is not so crazy in general, and have you ever heard anything more awesome than a woman who stockpiles gourmet food and quit her job to teach women how to shoot and beat up men?
That sounds like a good plan tbh, when society disintegrates completely you’ll definitely need to know how to murder men a) to keep them away from your food supplies b) to keep them away from you and c) for fun and/or ritual
