Top prepping, homesteading and survival experts to watch

Ten preppers to watch.
We can all learn from each other in the prepping community.
While many preppers chose to go under the radar, others are
more vocal about their prepping activities. We've come to admire
and appreciate them all.

Below is a list of the most insightful preppers ~ a top ten list of
public preppers, homesteaders and survivalists to watch... These
people have put their reputations and their lives on the line* to
help you become better prepared.

    * Remember, the first rule about prep club: don't talk
    about prep club! When the poop hits the propeller, the
    sheeple will know that you have valuable supplies and food.

Ten Preppers to Watch
Preppers belong to a large community of like-minded people. Here
are some great preppers to watch and follow:

Five women preppers to watch:
  1. Lisa Bedford, owner of thesurvivalmom.com and author of a
    book by the same name, is a soft spoken and tenacious
    homeschooling mom, who offers personal insight into
    suburban prepping.
  2. Bernie Carr, owner of apartmentprepper.com, is also an
    author of several books including The Prepper's Pocket Guide,
    The Penny Pinching Prepper, and even a children's book, Jake
    and Miller's Big Adventure A Prepper's Book for Kids. Bernie
    once had a public persona, but has since removed her name
    from her Web site. She lives frugally and shares tips for
    small space prepping on a budget.
  3. Katey Kautz, owner of mamakautz.com, is an essential oil
    loving and homeschooling mama. She adds just a hint of
    Christian living to the mix of living frugally and staying
  4. Gaye Levy, was the owner of backdoorsurvival.com. She
    lived on island in Washington State then moved to Arizona
    permanently to retire. Her former site has a different tone
    and the address changed to Brooklyn, New York. It has the
    makings of a web site sale.
  5. Tess Pennington, owner of readynutrition.com, offers
    valuable information garnered from her stint at the Red
    Cross. Is she also Chef Tess Pennington? Could be!

Five men preppers to watch:
  1. Joe Alton, M.D., owner of doomandbloom.net, a.k.a. Dr.
    Bones, provides a wealth of medical knowledge that's
    sometimes controversial with non-preppers. Take his stance
    on fish antibiotics, for example.
  2. Jim Cobb, owner of survivalweekly.com, is the author of
    several Prepper Books, including his lastest and greatest,
    Prepper's Armed Defense. His prepping and survival books do
    well, but unfortunately, his Web site rates just 529,554
    according to Alexa's ranking system (Sept. 8, 2016).
  3. Scott Kelley, owner of graywolfsurvival.com, wants you to
    forget his name. He's been AWOL on his survival site
    working on another Web site. Because he's a contributing
    writer for JoelLambert.com, we can confirm his identity (or at
    least the identity he once had publicly on his web site and
    on social media). He's since gleaned his name from his site.
    Hey, we've been saying it all along that the first rule of prep
    club is not talk about prep club.
  4. Robert Richardson, owner of offgridsurvival.com, is also the
    author of The Ultimate Situational Survival Guide. Not only is
    his Web site chalk-full of information, but he's been
    recognized on CNN and ABC news for his expertise..
  5. MD. Creekmore, owner of thesurvivalistblog.net, is the
    author of several prepper books, including his newest, The
    Prepper's Guide to Surviving the End of the World, as We
    Know It: Gear, Skills, and Related Know-How, pictured right.

Preparedness can take many forms, and each prepper, survivalist
or homesteading Web site has a worthy viewpoint for
consideration.  We can all learn from one another!
