Ken Uptegrove is the founder of ArkHaven, a website that chronicles his beliefs about religious “prepping” — preparing for survival in the event of a disaster or world cataclysm. He moved to Northwest Arkansas in 1985 to live on a blueberry farm because he believes that region is the safest place in case of a disaster.
