Doomsday Preppers Week 12: Rocks and Holes for Valentine’s Day
Now, I've never claimed to be a ladies' man, but even I have the sense God gave a rock never to ask a woman you're meeting for the first time if she "has any survival skills."

Jeff Flanningham faces a tough obstacle for a prepper: trying to find a mate who will come live with him in his underground missile silo.
Oh, this is going to be fun. Can Jeff fail any more spectacularly than Brian Murdock in Episode 2?
Like Doug (and everyone else), Jeff is prepping for the pending economic collapse. Maybe Doomsday Preppers should simply be named Preparing for Obama’s Second Term. Or is that too political?
Jeff’s bug-out location is 800 miles away from his Wisconsin home, far away from everything in the middle of nowhere, Kansas. The decommissioned Atlas F nuclear missile silo is an impressive underground structure that is rapidly decaying, and the moment it first pops into view you get the distinct impression that Jeff has bitten off far more than he can chew.
While Jeff isn’t without allies, he does seem to be without much of a clue. Despite spending tens of thousands of dollars so far, Jeff still hasn’t even gotten the basic electrical needs of the upper and lower command modules squared away, and the only light comes from bare bulbs suspended from what appear to be dangling electrical cords.
The show then gets painful to watch as Jeff goes on a series of dates arranged over the internet.
