underground

  1. Urban Survival
    I have been hearing of rumors of massive tunnel systems under most large cities such as San Fransisco, New York Los Angeles and Las Vegas. This made me wonder, in areas where bugging out may be nearly impossible due to the traffic and possible violence that may be occurring in the streets, would...

    I do not know where to post this... so someone please move this question that I have, if necessary. What does "Vesta" make that is 50 foot long and requires a railroad car to haul? Maybe the spelling is "VESTE"... Here are the details. I was driving from Denver on I-76 eastwards, when...

    During WWII aircraft engines were shipped and stored in large containers evacuated and filled with Nitrogen. Even today, when opened, those engines reveal, no compromise in integrity. The Germans used metal containers filled with Nitrogen to store arms and ammunition underground for expected use...
  4. 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...

    I had a chance to test out the generator in a real lights out situation. This is the first time we lost electric at home since Onan was recalled to the factory. A four hour fault in the underground system was a nice test for the Generac set up. It took me 35 minutes to get the food storage and...

    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...

  8. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Hi All Was hoping to get some advice/pointers on my upcoming project before i completely dig up my back yard. To start, for reference, I live in a 15 year old subdivision with somewhat smaller lots. Maybe 0.2 of an acre? I have a corner lot. We bought before we started to prep. Eventually we...
  9. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Alright, so I was thinking that if I ever had to live underground due to fallout, it'd be nice to have a grow room. So do any of you guys/gals have any idea how to economically build an underground grow room? It wouldn't even have to be permanent, just 6-9 months before any risk of structural...

    The wife and I have been dedicated 'Preppers' for the last few years, slowly building our reserves. And I have been on the look out for some BOL in the event we are ever in the right position to actually purchase any land...right time, right place...right price tag? And so on... And we...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hello everyone, I was wondering about underground shelters. If you have on I'd like to hear about it, how it was built, how it's stocked, maybe get some info about the various systems employed (electrical, ventilation). I am also very interested in the industry side of it. Who are the...
  12. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I live in an area that has been hit by several small tornadoes, no where near what has happened in the Mid-west. We have a farm with a good many acres so space is not a problem. The farm house is solid 36"+ field stone walls that have stood for more than 150 years. BUT - I have an aged mother...

    We just bought 12+ acres in TexArKana area with not a rolling hill on the place. One of the first things I'm going to do is bury a 40' shipping container. I've researched it thoroughly and seen a few videos of people doing it. I know about pouring and shoring, and how to keep it drained w/a...
  14. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    There are many threads about root cellars, fallout shelters, underground shelters etc. even Bunkers. This thread can discuss them all if people wish to contribute any of their ideas and links. A defensible bunker and an NBC shelter are different. A shelter must be a buttoned-up, closed-in...

  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Have any of you ever seen one of these for sale? Would they be of any use for long term water storage or even for general storage? They're powdercoated aluminum, so I'm curious if I could bury one and use it for a survival stash. Some food, guns and other supplies. Kind of easy to find with a...
  17. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    first consider your privacy, accessability, and a deadline to complete. i would say privacy is important. therefor, your hole will not be dug until your "bunker" is ready. you can always order an oversized concrete septic tank or something, but they are expensive, small, and it is hard to stay...
