New Movie: “PREPPER”

AndrewPattersonI had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Andrew Patterson, director of a new movie he is working on, called “PREPPER.”

I originally saw one of the casting calls for extras back in May, about the time I was getting ready to move to Tulsa, so I passed it up.

Prepping for Martial Law and Civil Unrest

Guest post By Mason Kline

Whether you’re prepping for the apocalypse, natural disasters, the breakdown of society, or all of the above, one commonality surfaces from all types of breakdown: civil unrest. There is a chapter (or two) in every prepper’s handbook about how to handle society in the event of collapse because it’s a relative certainty that not everyone in your community will have their ducks in a row.
