Hollywood Star Says He’s a Prepper in Case “Sh** Hits the Fan” in LA

Many actors, from Scott Baio to Mark Wahlberg, have joined other prominent personalities like Joe Rogan and the Daily Wire crew in ditching Los Angeles and moving to greener, less woke, lower taxed, and less crime filled pastures in red states, particularly Texas, Florida, and Tennessee.

But Josh Duhamel, the star of Las Vegas and Transformers is taking it one step further. In an interview with Inverse.com, Via The Daily Wire, Duhamel talked about what he is doing, and where he is going if things go sideways: “It started with one little cabin in the woods with no electricity and no water. We would go and we didn’t wanna stay for more than a day or two. You could tell the mice had overrun it. It was disgusting,”

When the property next door became available, the idea for a compound-like setting began to foment in his head. He continued: “I bought it for like nothing; this beautiful little idyllic cabin on the water,” he said. “Suddenly I had 54 acres out there. So I had two cabins, one with no electricity or water. They both have wells and electricity now, but they’re both really small … We shaped the land. We created trails through it. I’m actually growing crops out there.”

The 50-year-old actor turned survivalist first planted clover and chicory to entice deer to feed on his land ostensibly so he can hunt and eat them if necessary. From there he moved on to corn and pumpkins, with plans for even more. he continued: “It’s called a food plot. My idea is that I want to be able to hunt a deer. I’m not a hunter by any means, but I have this crazy fixation on what happens if sh*t hits the fan in LA and I have to take my family out there and live off the land,”

Continuing to describe what he’s learning and why, he said: “I’ve become a bit of a doomsday prepper, I guess. So I’m learning how to hunt. I have wells. We have water. We have fuel. I’m building something so if things do go south, I have a place to take my family. And I believe that we could live off the land out there. I’m not very good at it yet, but I’m getting there,” he added. “It keeps my lizard brain active.”

Once a fringe movement, prepping has grown in popularity on both sides of the political aisle as the left worries about climate change and supposedly resulting food shortages or natural disasters and the right worries about martial law being declared and civil unrest causing massive disruptions to daily life and the logistics of getting food and fuel where it needs to go. So, theogh Duhamel might be outside the norm for LA right now, it’s not hard to imagine a future where many more, even of the rich and famous, follow in his footsteps and prepare for things taking a serious turn for the worse.
