  4. My Bunker Story

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    At the end of a geology retreat, our conversations revolved around an EMP. We discussed short distance (size of a house) EMPs that we can make (though illegal, from disposable cameras) and I brought up the possibility of larger EMPs being released over major cities or communication byways. Then...
  5. Underground Bunkers and Flooding

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Due to climate change, there will be more and more precipitation which will result in more overland flooding. Sometimes in places we least expect it. Maybe going underground isn't the best idea unless it's just temporary. Where would one get information about the chances of flooding occurring...

    DIY - Do It Yourself
    Hey alls... The wife and I (mainly I) decided that our new location needed a storm shelter/root cellar. We recently moved out of town and the area we now live in has been hit by major storm/tornado several times in the last 10 years so the primary function of the shelter will be a storm...

  10. Pest control After disasters

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Dealing with bed bugs, had to order a gallon of Sterifab to fight them. I'm thinking it would be very hard to deal with bed bugs in a post disaster scenario. I don't work for any company and get nothing out of this... But Sterifab is great for bed bugs and sterilization.. I used to work for a...

  13. Human Waste???

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    What are people going to do with their feces and urine when you are in a bunker or underground location? If you are there for very long a five gallon bucket is not going to do the trick. What are everyone's ideas about this? I have been thinking about this for a while and cant really come up...

    The things you find on youtube; listening to the narrator it's my impression that they have gone through members over the years re. bedrooms " 'decorated by former occupants' " , but what an effort. I am impressed. Lots of ideas brewing already....Enjoy!

  17. Guns and bunkers, which is best? And a bunker in action video

    Firearms General Discussion
    This thread will hopefully discuss guns and bunkers and which is better to own, a bunker or guns or both? I have heard that If someone owns their own bunker - deep secure shelter, they won't need any guns. Which I don't agree with. The humorous movie "Blast from the Past" is proof of a...
  18. Some ideas for a self sufficient bunker..

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    This is an idea I came up with for an optimal bunker. My idea is elaborate and expensive but some of the concepts could be applied on a smaller scale. I honestly think that in whatever type of scenario having a fully hidden, self sufficient bunker is invaluable. I will outline a few of my ideas...

  20. Ultimate 50's Retro Survival Bunker!!

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    http://www.retronaut.co/2011/04/cold-war-city/ I could get lost in there "Exploring" and never come out. I doubt if 120 feet below ground is enough to survive a direct hit from a 1 megaton ground burst, though... and you can be sure the Russians knew *exactly* where that thing was, and had it...
