Many people believe the end is near and have been prepping for the end of times by stocking up with the necessities of survival.  Many have 'bug out bags' and remote locations to hold up in while things cool down but wouldn't a bunker in your backyard be pretty helpful?

Many people feel the end of the world or a social breakdown is coming soon and have began prepping for such events to happen.  There are many ideas people base the 'apocalypse' on such as solar flares knocking out the power grid, economic collapse or collapse of society, weather and/or religious reasons.  Notice I didn't name the Mayan calendar?  That's because I'm pretty sure the Mayans didn't put leap years on the calendar meaning the Mayan D-Day has already passed and we are still here.

 

So what do you do?  Many 'preppers' have been stocking up on food, water, ammunition, medicine and other essentials but where do you store it all?  This is where Scott Bales, owner of Deep Earth Bunkers, steps in.  Deep Earth Bunkers custom builds anything survival structure your heart desires.  They build steel and fiberglass storm shelters, safe rooms, tsunami pods, fireproof pyramid pods, underground condos and of course underground survival bunkers.  They've been on Discovery Channel with a reality show where you can see what all goes into making a bunker and what they come with.  They can even make a tactical bunker in which the hand rail going into the bunker turns into a flame thrower to keep unwanted guests out, doors that can withstand bullets and explosives, nuclear fallout air filters, outside cameras and more defensive options.  Models with living quarters have full plumbing as well, it's not your typical RV bathroom set up, it's actually quite nice.

You're probably thinking one of two things, how much do they run or somebody has to be crazy to want one.  You may even be thinking both.  From what I've seen on their Discovery Channel show they can range from $50,000 up to $450,000 for bunkers, I'm sure the storm shelters are a little less expensive but you can contact Deep Earth Bunker directly for more pricing and information.

Will there be enough disasters to justify a purchase such at this?  Only time will tell.  I personally think they are pretty cool but would I spend the money on it?  Probably not.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
