I say "Heck no". Anything he says they are going to misconstrue to make him out to be a nutjob. That's all they ever do.

Guess we are all in agreement,he said it was a crazy day and he needs to sleep on it.They must have really laid it on thick how 'beneficial' it would be I reckon? Because he IS considering it.

I definitely agree Chisel,I wouldnt go near it as long as they are in town,YIKES,eh?And scare away others,I bet you are dead on right.

I think they are leeches.

The best opportunities in life almost never start by receiving an unsolicited phone call. But the worst opportunities...

The 15 minutes of "fame" aint worth it,...to what end? I once had HGTV here for filming a project and it took me weeks to get my place in order, filming took all day,.....not one good thing came of it.......no way, never again.....

Having some experience with this, TV often pays well, but they do own you -- and exposure isn't always want you want. See the sister wives or moonshiner shows.

Just out of curiosity, why were they asking you?

A quick look at your blog and nothing strikes me as being written by someone who would fit the "doomsday preppers" bill. Pretty mild really. You appear to be someone just doing small reviews of gear and such. Geez, everyone and their dog has a blog these days it seems, especially survival blogs. Hopefully they don't put people who are "prepared" with those who are 'doomsday prepared" in the same boat. Was it because of the blog or for something else?

There is a guy here in Ontario (or Quebec ?)who buys up old school busses so he can bury them and convert them to bunkers or something. I can see why they may want to talk to hime for sure....

Ha! no way.

I have only caught the odd episode, but I haven't seen that one.

People talk about him a lot around here.

Understood.

I wasn't trying to imply there was anything with you blog either BTW. Hope it didn't come across that way. It's just that..well..It's just a blog is all. A guy writing stuff on this or that. Nothing stood out that would suggest you wore a tinfoil hat and spent hours a day in your basement eating mainstay bars and bagging rice.

To be totally honest I think they're reaching out to anyone and everyone who in any way "preps." I cannot help but suspect they pick out the more bizarre of the crop for sensationalism sake.


In that case, I should give them my brother in laws number. He posts here on this site (or used to anyway)
Real interesting chap that one.

(don't hurt me if you read this) wink
