The People We Don’t Want to Be

I saw this (The link has been removed…it basically offered a bunker spot for $200,000 for a single and $400,000 for a family, and to contact him right away) on Craigslist today, and it says ‘scam’ all over it.  It makes me wonder at the motivation of the sellers of these ‘bunker condos”.  For $200k or $400k, any one of us could buy a rural piece of property, bury our own bunker, and (based on back of the napkin math) fill it with several years worth of food, water, and fuel.  So why would I want to entrust my future to others, crammed in an underground complex with 50 other scared families, raising the possibility of mental breaks, diseases, and random violence?

Sounds too much like the setup to a bad horror movie for me!

    The link you posted was removed by the author, too bad because a good laugh is nice once in awhile. Even though I didn’t read it, it reminds me of the Y2K survival weekends that were being held throughout the country. For $300, an expert would feed you survival rations while training you to chop wood, saw logs with a cross cut saw and carry water from the creek. You would leave with the knowledge that you could survive the “crash”, even though you wouldn’t like oatmeal three times a day. Another ad has caught my interest but I am not buying into it and that is the “37 items you should hoard”. Having a place to go is great but what if you can’t get there? Can you tough it out right where you are? Good neighbors will be one of the most important commodities during hard times, much like during Daniel Boon’s time. My two cents worth.

    Well, glad to see it was removed at least, though sorry you missed it! It basically was a 2 line ad offering a survival bunker spot for $200,000 for a single person, and $400,000 for a family.

    People will take advantage any time they can.

    I agree wholeheartedly that neighbors make a huge difference. Luckily the one right next door to me preps as well, and I can rely on him to keep an eye on our house, just as we do theirs.

    My mother, who is in the Northeast, checked each neighbor’s property after the hurricane hit, called the one who had a tree down over their house, etc. I hope I would be as lucky should something happen here while we were gone!
