Fans of Doomsday Preppers on National Geographic Channel know that preppers have all different reasons for doing what they do, from financial fears to medical catastrophes. This week, prepper Amanda Bobbin lives her days in fear of a comet hitting the earth’s atmosphere.
Some preppers are scared by what they see going on around them. Others have friends who encourage them to get into prepping. And, some simply watch too much television. But, in Amanda’s case, she believes her reason for prepping came to her in a dream. According to NatGeo:
Doomsday Preppers visits the household of Amanda Bobbin, who began prepping after being warned in her sleep of imminent danger. These days Amanda and her husband Scott spend their time hidden away in the mountains, where they practice sustainable living to prepare themselves in the event of a comet hitting the earth's atmosphere.
So, was Amanda warned in her sleep of impending doom streaking towards the earth?
She and her husband, Scott, apparently believe so.
Voices in Her Head
Amanda says that about a year ago, she heard a voice, which she calls “Greta,” telling her to leave the state of Florida and make her way to safety elsewhere. That “elsewhere” turned out to be North Carolina—and the previous owner of the home they purchased had been named Greta. This, the couple indicates, is when they knew what they were doing was meant to be. Additionally, the house, named “Paragon Jewel,” contained hidden prepper stocks—toilet paper, gas masks, clothing, etc.
Convinced that they have been selected for their mission by “Greta,” they are now actively preparing for disaster, continuing the stockpile that was already started for them at Paragon Jewel. In episode “Preppers Paradise,” the Bobbins will reveal their stockpiling and planning to their kids, who will choose whether or not to believe and participate. Additionally, Amanda will demonstrate for viewers how she “channels” Greta via an automatic writing technique.
Doomsday Preppers airs on National Geographic Channel on Tuesdays at 9 p.m.
