IF you thought that Nat Geo may have run out of things to film ala prepper… Think again.

In the Craigslist of Pittsburgh and Omaha, there is an add for preppers needed for Off Grid Show.

It’s listed in the “TV/FILM/VIDEO/RADIO JOBS”

Nat Geo Looking for Families Going off the Grid (USA)


Date: 2012-09-11, 5:47PM EDT


ARE YOU A SELF-RELIANT AMERICAN PREPPER?

If you believe society is failing, and you have skillfully prepared to live the TRUE life of an American Prepper, then we want to hear from you.

National Geographic is going beyond the brief, 15-minute glimpse of basement bunkers, and into the wilderness with a true American Prepper family for an in-depth and intimate look into the lives of these brave homesteaders. In this new documentary series, we want to accompany you off the grid and into your world of committed basic survival, documenting and earning an education in what it actually means to be prepared.

Whether you are planning your move into a remote bug-out now or are teaching others how to do so successfully, this season-long documentary series wants to follow you on your daily journey. Do you know of a family or group who is independent of society, honorably existing on the most basic level, and prepared in the event of a major global crunch? Are you part of a devoted prepper community that is thriving? Do you wish you had the platform to break down the myths about preppers, and show the artistry of living in a survivor’s world?

Please include any articles, photos, or videos that can help us gain a better understanding of your way of life. We are sensitive to OPSEC concerns and your information will be kept in absolute confidence.

If interested, please email us.

I did not give the contact information, if you want to get involved in this you can look it up yourself.

For me, I have no plans to be their next Dancin Chicken!

So we have had the Doomsday Preppers, Doomsday Bunkers, now we have the Doomsday Off Grid? I must admit the information to be gained from the show might be very good. But as I have stated when I cover episodes of DP, we only look at what we can learn by what other preppers do and fail to do. The producers of the show only have one thing in mind and that’s shock and cash. I am sure we will see the Human Composting Toilet covered in great detail, maybe even a privy or two thrown in. So they will continue to have their “Experts” detail what they are doing wrong, good god I have disagreed with them a lot, but an opinion is like an asshole, most everyone has one.

So I actually do look forward to the show, the chance to see and learn but I do have to put up with our community members made to look like idiots, lunatics and un-medicated inmates of the facility. Now this will be employment to the families that decide to stick their toes in the water, and some may find the water very cold and some just right. I don’t have any idea what they will pay them but it’s got to be nothing compared to the products that may get endorsed and used on the show. So if you follow the show, follow the money as well. When you see products on the show, they are there for a reason and yes, It’s Advertising. So just don’t run out and buy that one, do research and buy with knowledge.

In the big picture, every homestead needs to incorporate some of the items we will see into our preps as well. Solar, wind and thermal power and heat all need to become part of the prepper lingo and lifestyle. We need to produce our own energy and strive to be more self sufficient, we can never really be totally self sufficient, but what percentage are you?
