    Anybody else catch this show on the history channel?

    History Channel profiles Nazareth man's self-sufficient life in 'Apocalypse PA' - Morning Call

    Couldn't find anything on after a quick search, maybe that telling the show wont be around long?

    The premise is OK, but the show is really lacking.

    BTW, I've about had it with "survival" type shows and the "wood gassifier" they always seem to make.

    In the first 2 episodes a nutshell summary:
    gassifier powered GMC truck
    got goats for milk (even though they had not completed the fence and have no idea how to raise them)
    Bought a BP revolver, so he could make is own BP (using stale urine[dunno])
    Made a still and cooked up some 'shine that tasted "horrible"
    Using a bicycle powered get-up managed to fried a microwave oven.

    Yep, saw it. The guy is creative, no question. And just as flaky as a good pie crust. If he is indeed setting up for long term survival situations, he's going to have to figure out how to operate without a lot of his gadgets.
