Rules for Preppers – Staying Under the Radar

My wife and I have been prepping for well over a year now; and when we think we have it all ready, we find ourselves doing more. But that’s ok; nothing is done that is not worthwhile.
In our prepping world only 2 people we know personally know of our preparations.
A few other like-minded people that we have befriended through forums know as well; they do not know us in person however. We have made it a commitment to keep our stores of food, weapons and survival supplies our secret.
I recently found myself in a predicament. Last week I was contacted by the casting director from the National Geographic show, Doomsday Preppers.
They want to do an entire show about preppers that are going to use a yacht as part of their escape plans. They located me from an article I had written for a prepper website by going through the editor.
I was flattered that my story was good enough to be on national TV. I thought it would be interesting to offer some advice to others. Heck, it might even be fun.
So we began talking. I told them I had three requirements: no face shot, no real name used, no real boat name used and no real location used. I was contacted by the associate producer; everything agreed to except the face shot.
Nope….you got to do better. I was then contacted by the executive producer…..must have face in video to make the story. Nope…..I must retain my secrecy. Then they threw in $500 cash. This wasn’t going anywhere.
