The never-ending hysteria over a Doomsday cometh has sparked a growing movement of people called “preppers,” who prepare for the end of the world as we know it — and in some cases, make a profit.
Tim Ralston, a married father of two from Arizona, is one such “prepper.”
“There’s a lot of different things that could happen,” Ralston said. “For me, I look at prepping as kind of like insurance. You have car insurance, health insurance, life insurance.”
Call it Apocalypse insurance. Ralston turned his family’s two-car garage into a staging area. Inside is a trailer, which he keeps packed and ready to go at all times, stockpiles of freeze-dried food, including cartons of canned chicken with a shelf life of 15 years, survival gear, such as a system for purifying polluted water, first aid kits and lots of weapons and ammunition.
