Meet two Americans who are preparing to protect themselves and their loved ones in case of social collapse or other types of catastrophe.
Deep in Oregon’s backcountry sits an 80-acre off-the-grid estate that prepper Curt and his family have designed as a fortress in the event of an economic collapse. Isolation is one of their greatest strengths, but the protective measures are endless: a 3,000-square-foot greenhouse, a lake with 1 million gallons of water, infrared cameras and a high-tech software system not to mention the children are trained in marksmanship.
Meanwhile, Rodney Dial and his family are preparing for a devastating tsunami to hit the coast of Alaska, forever altering their way of life. He is building a series of caches that will house his preps in steel tubes, only accessible by scuba diving. (2013, 48 min)
Followed by a conversation with Executive Producers Kathleen Cromley and Alan Madison.
