Default Doomsday bunkers on the rise

Small California city welcomes doomsday bunkers | Offbeat | Seattle News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News | KOMO News

I remember the old man was thinking about building a underground shelter in our backyard from a Soviet nuclear attack during the late fifties. But now it's everything that scares us...what a world we live in.

It would be cool to have a Bunker or at least a decent BOL

All I know is.......I want one. But to keep from raising suspicions I'm calling mine a storm shelter.
Actually, I wouldn't mind burying one of these in the back yard and creating a hidden access to it.

There are alot of people that are sharing cost and prepping with family or friends and neighbors. If I had a chance to get one I would probably do it, I'm renting right now but when I buy a home it might be buried in my backyard....

I have a few ideas for this in my "storm" shelter build...waiting on the land.

For a cool $750K you can have your own former missile silo in Oklahoma...good way to escape from pesky neighbors or that sudden surprise from North Korea. Atlas warheads not included.

I've see some of those shows where people move into an old missile silo. I would want one but don't want to have to move to N. Dakota or Oklahoma.

I saw that show too on history or discovery channel.....very interesting. If i had my choice of a bug out place to live it would be Montana , I would build a compoundby hand, I want to be self sufficient but I am unable to currently do to my health conditions. But I'm still young so hopefully if we are not at war with the government I can do what I want to.......
