Deep in the Outback with an Aussie Doomsday Preppier

Post by absinthe beginner » Mon May 20, 2019 7:11 pm

I spent a week with a doomsday prepper deep in the outback. This is how it changed me

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-05-18/ ... t/11084660

It's pitch dark in a way you only get in the bush as I arrive at the property of a man I met an hour ago.

"This is my base", he says. "I have everything you need."

I take this the way city people say it, where "I have everything" means "Bunnings has everything".

But peering through the darkness, I realise he means it. There's chickens, a veggie garden that'd put Costa to shame, solar panels and septic tanks. And then, "what's in the basement?"

"Six months of fuel and some basic weapons."

"Weapons?!"

"Just basic ones."

Suddenly, I realise what this charming bush cottage actually is.

It's a "bug out" — a well-equipped base that survivalists keep ready for when "TSHTF" (the shit hits the fan).

Good article.

The concept of prepping as a practical concern rather than ideological is kind of an important one to keep focus of.

Actually the concept of prepping becoming hip entertains the heck out of me.

Just for the look on the face of ideological prepper when hipster Barry and his boyfriend are doing it better.
