Luxury bunker, survival condos, $$several million each depending, survive your basic apocalypse, outdoor simulated views, enough food for 5 years and the lists go on and on. Money and horsepower can unlock (or lock) many a life door.

After reading articles like these, I find myself thinking. “how can all of this wonderment go wrong?”

Putting myself in the place of being able to dump a few millions in middle earth, would I? Seems like everything is provided for me and mine. Sound familiar? Even security provided although many folks going to compounds like these will be packing. More like carrying and there is a difference.

An initial concern for me with these expensive compounds is living with others who are not handling the after well. To think that all the woes of our current society will not be at work underground dwellings during tough down times is fantasy at best.

If I had that kind of money and was of the mind to work on the after safe location(s) I would opt for my own helicopter and several out of the way places to stay. Further north, small, equipped with basics and among like minded folks.

Keep it simple as possible with mobility a key factor. No plan is perfect nor a cure all for catastrophes. Any plan “A” very well may turn into “B-C”  from the get go. The helicopter will need a bunker though.

I suppose in all honesty, I should admit that I probably would not be someone others would want to be stuck with underground. Very low BS levels and old man stuck in his ways stuff. Besides:

"Don't hang on
Nothing lasts forever, but the earth and sky
It's there always
And all your money won't another minute buy
Dust, all we are is dust in the wind
Life's too short brothers and sisters
Dust, all we are is dust in the wind"

Ironic that this song is sung by Kansas


This is/was a trigger event for us. Not a trigger event that sets us running with Henny-Penny and Cocky-locky. It is though a major world event dabbling in war, rhetoric and nations pushing buttons. It also has set the media on fire and every Tom, Dick and Harry spewing passionate opinions on every agenda under the sun. Worthy of note is watching how the media covers global pressures like this. 

Trigger events for us sets us to a higher level of having our ducks in a row. Gas tanks are topped off, bug out bags and go bags updated. Heating oil will be topped off. Vehicle gas tanks will never go below half. 

What each of us have control over is our little corner of the world. Goods and services are still available. 

Pay close attentions to local, state and national events. Seek other news sources. Beyond that, continue life as lived.

Do you have a code word that sets members of your family to action? Is that important or not? 

Her, I, son and very close friends have such a word and it is never ever used for a test or in jest. Nor does it cause panic. The word sets all of us on set(s) of tasks, coms and gathering. The bombing of Syria was not an event that set this off.


Never too late to learn to tie new knots!


Put your cell phones away when you are out and about. Heads up.

Have a good week and thanks for the visit this week.
