I posted this on another forum.

But then wondered...'What Would A Preppar Do' ?

So I wanted to know if there's any doomsday preppars for that Asteriod coming Friday?

If it hits it could wipe out The United Kingdom.

London Bridges Falling Down, Falling Down...

But then wondered...'What Would A Preppar Do' ?

We would step away from the bridge.

I knew about this before 12-21-12 and researched it, it's not going to hit. Still I'm camping very close to a nice bug out location this weekend (wasn't planned). I'd rather "bug in", but who knows? I doubt if it was going to hit they would tell us anyway. And if stuff like this ever does hit I'm not sure how being a "prepper" (I'm not one) would help you. Beside smart remarks they seem useless.

If an asteroid hits hard enough to wipe out all the UK, the rest of the world is also doomed. You don't have to be hit directly to have your weather destroyed.

Some events can not be survived, no matter how well prepared you are.
