As many around here know, I dislike showing or telling anything about my remote mountain retreat

Although probably no one on the internet has shown more pics of their retreat / BOL and bunker aka underground storm, fallout and storage shelter, than I have.

I have 6 pic threads but I won't give the links to the ones with the photobucket pics, right now, since the bandwidth is almost exceeded. In a few days the bandwidth will reset and I can give those threads.

But my homepage has 2 pages of pics as well as these two threads with many pics, that are not photobucket pics >

The 2nd long pic thread showing my survival retreat and bunker > https://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?t=52880

and my 3rd pic thread with more than 60 pics and in post #5 is the excellent survival retreat/BOL Checklist > https://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?t=84562


I know my bunker and retreat are not expensive or fancy but they are located in an excellent survival area with an abundance of wood, wildlife and water. And in a very beautiful and remote area.
Anyone can ask me anything and I will answer, eventually.


Here are a few pics in case some won't click on the links I gave >

Roof of the bunker showing layers. This roof is made of 3 layers of logs, cardboard on top, layer of sawdust, sheets of plastic, layer of newspapers to protect the plastic then layer of dirt, then heavy tarp, more newspapers, much more dirt and rocks, soil on top and I have 4 kinds of grasses, raspberry bushes etc. growing on top >




Showing finished roof with grass on top with a dead tree also for more camo, stovepipe, plywood covered window etc. >




Close-up of concrete roof and stovepipe >




Back trap door showing 3 foot thick rock and concrete roof. Took 250 eighty pound bags of concrete mix to make the concrete roof. >





Here is a good view looking down on my private dirt road which this pic was taken only a few feet above my bunker on the hill side. >
