Survival Mom and World War Z
I was thrilled to be asked to film a promotional video for the movie World War Z. The book, by Max Brooks, was excellent with some pretty insightful survival lessons. This video was filmed in Phoenix, and at the last minute, the director asked if I could can some tomatoes as part of the “action”. Fortunately, there were some fresh tomatoes on hand, jars, and a knife! I did the best I could with those 3 items. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to meet Brad Pitt — maybe next time!

The truth about most preppers, though, is they blend in with every other person out there.

The truth is, you really can’t spot a prepper — if the prepper is smart!

You, however, will be clued in and prepared. Take advantage of the first hours, perhaps even days, while everyone else is wondering what has happened to shore up your preps and position yourself for survival.
