Are you a Dooms Day Prepper? Do you even know what it means to be one? Allow the writer to enlighten you just a bit on the concept and maybe it will help you decide if you want to be one.
Doomsday preppers are Americans who are preparing for the end of the world as we know it. Preppers are unique in their beliefs, motivations, strategies and they will go to whatever lengths necessary to ensure they are prepared for any of life’s uncertainties.

However, with the radical changes America has faced since 911, it may be time to take these people seriously.
