One of the more popular actors today made a bit of a shock admission recently.
“Transformers” actor Josh Duhamel admitted that he has a bit of an odd hobby.
In recent years, he has transformed into a doomsday prepper, building a compound for his family “if sh** hits the fan.”
I’m Ready for It
When he first purchased the compound in North Dakota, it was about as basic as it gets.
There was no power and no running water, just a small cabin in the woods. With his success, that has all changed.
Duhamel stated, “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,” reports the Daily Wire.
When the property next door went up for sale, he snagged it, and it was a game changer for the family compound.
He continued, “I bought it for like nothing; this beautiful little idyllic cabin on the water.
“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.”
He added, “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.It keeps my lizard brain active.”
Since preppers are often associated with conservatives, let’s hope this little confession does not get him blacklisted because we really like his movies!
