And that is the goal. At the very least, we want to prompt people to think about it. Taking action – even better.
MPS: Do you participate in the preparedness lifestyle.
NM: Yes. Actually, my son is really involved. Got started in college. He told me about My Patriot Supply. First, he ordered some seeds for me. I now have some Alexapure Survival Springs and food.
When my son was at Virginia Tech, he mapped out his route all the way back to our farm by bicycle, in case vehicles were not an option.
Also, probably 50% of the crew are preppers. Most of us live out in the country, which means all of us have guns. And emergency kits in our cars.
The best part of filming this show is learning from each other. We’ve all learned about new gear and skills that we’ll all take home from here.
MPS: Any advice for people just getting started toward preparedness and self-sufficiency?
NM: Find a go-to supplier. You’ll need to do your own research. You want to know that you can get everything you need. And you want to buy from a company who has the same values as you. That’s why we go with you guys, to be honest.
Beyond supplies, everybody should be ready to get from point “A” to point “B”. Especially knowing what point “B” is. We are prepared at the farm, but we never thought of that, until we started this show. Planning for relocation should not be overlooked.
For example, my husband works in Washington DC. Just like my son, he needed a plan to get home if regular modes of transportation fail. We made sure he had a bike locked up near his office and maps. Planning is easy to do and really comes in handy when you need it most.
MPS: Great advice. Thanks for your time again, Nina. Can’t wait to catch the first episodes of the show!
NM: Thank you for spreading the word!
Have a great weekend, folks. Stay vigilant!
