Surviving Doomsday in a Condo

In Kansas’s Survival Condo Project, you can ride out the apocalypse underground.

There are many reasons the ultra-wealthy may choose to live in a condo rather than a stand-alone home, from wanting to be in the middle of a heavily populated urban area to enjoying the country club-style amenities. However, after TEOTWAWKI, the rich may choose condo living for a different reason, and that is strength in numbers.

So far Larry Hall’s Kansas’s Luxury Survival Condo Project has been a tremendous success. These 12 premium condominiums were built deep underground in a former missle silo. Despite the steep $3M price tag, all of the full-floor 1,820-square-foot units have sold out. The 900-square-foot half-floor units, which run $1.5M, have also sold out. Hall is currently building a second, as any developer who is onto a good thing would.

Why are so many individuals of financial means choosing to invest in survivalism in Kansas? The Sunflower State is certainly a lot closer than New Zealand, making it more likely that you’ll survive the trip to shelter before time runs out. Many of the investors in these condos have children—at this time 19 in total. They may simply not be willing to risk trying to travel farther when their families’ lives are at stake. In a state that is known for its flat geography, it’s also comforting to be able to see everything for miles around, even though others can’t see you.

Take a Look Inside the Silo

Once you realize how many features these underground condos have, the price tag seems a lot more reasonable.

  • Elevator and stairwell access
  • Outdoor guards
  • Hydroponic gardens
  • Stocked aquaponics rooms
  • A reverse osmosis water filtration system

Yes, you read that right. Even the dogs and cats of the owners of these high-end units will survive when the SHTF. At least two of them will, as there is a two pet, 75-pounds or less limit on pet ownership.

The owners of the units don’t have to wait for the apocalypse to enjoy the amenities. At $5,000 per month for a full-floor unit, it’s not surprising to learn that many owners are already using their condos as vacation getaways. From the minute you enter the front door uning biometric keyless access, you can tell these are no ordinary condominiums. Each unit has modern amenities that include Kohler fixtures, full-spectrum LED lighting, gorgeous hardwood floors, walk-in closets, built-in desks, children’s bunk beds, full kitchens, television, and a large fireplace. Owners are also able to view live video feed of the world outside.

This facility is designed to function like a mini-society. In the event the worst should happen, the owners of these units will no longer be responsible for making payments. Instead of mere owners, they will become a part of an ecosystem that is designed to keep things as normal as possible. There is a board of directors, and the owners who own a full-floor have twice the say of those who own half-floor units. Adult residents will take turns performing necessary duties like food prep and teaching the children.

According to Larry Hall, the owners of these condos are not typical survivalists. They are simply families who came together to give themselves the very best shot at survival in incredibly unstable times. Many people have concerns about the government’s ability to protect us in even the best of situations. If the grid collapsed, the economy collapsed, there is social unrest, there are terrorist attacks or an invasion, or there is an outbreak of deadly disease, these families are ready, willing, and able to go underground and wait it out.

Next-Level Luxury Security Vehicles

Want to drive like Batman? These vehicles offer features that will allow you to do just that.

Did you know that 80 – 90% of terrorist attacks take place while the victims of these attacks are in their vehicles? There are over 100,000 armored security vehicles on the road today. The average person may have encountered one of these specially equipped cars, SUVs, and trucks already, but they’d never know it because these vehicles look like any other luxury vehicle from the outside. Inside, however, they are anything but ordinary.

 

Why the Wealthy are Investing in Bulletproof Vehicles

Many parts of the world are plagued with violence, from terrorist attacks to war zones to kidnappings. In these places, the wealthy have been purchasing armored vehicles for many years. However, these vehicles have not been as popular in the United States until recent increases in social unrest made the wealthy begin fearing for their own safety. Today politicians, diplomats, and executives can often be found driving these vehicles worldwide, courtesy of companies such as International Armoring Corporation, Conquest Vehicles, Alpine Armoring Designs, Armortek, INKAS Armored, Texas Armoring Corporation, and more.

 

The Ultimate Getaway Vehicles

Many of these features will be familiar to you because we have all seen them in action movies. You don’t need to be a superhero or an international spy to own a vehicle that will allow you to reach your definition safely, to throw pursuers off the trail, and, if necessary, to defend yourself.

 

The options that are available for these vehicles are insane. There is really nothing these companies haven’t thought of. You can order a luxury car, SUV, or truck equipped with everything from bulletproof vests to first aid kits. These cars are also available with heavy-duty 80 AMP batteries, front and rear ram bumpers, roadblocks, and even IED jamming systems that have been specifically designed to counter roadside bombs.

 

By the time you’re finished reading this detailed list of the features that are available, you’re going to be wondering why you don’t own one of these super-cars already.

 

Remote Start

You don’t even have to be inside one of these vehicles to start it. If you’re trying to get away fast, this is a feature you definitely want to have because it will allow you to jump in and race away without wasting time starting your car up. After all, when every second counts, those are precious seconds you can’t afford to waste.

 

Bomb Blankets

If you’re concerned about hand grenades and pipe bombs, you’ll want to have a bomb blanket in your vehicle. These innovative blankets are designed to absorb the impact from improvised explosive devices, and they will lessen the impact of shrapnel while absorbing the impact from a blast.

 

Road Tacks

We’ve all seen these in cartoons and movies, but who knew road tacks were something people are already using in real life? Having a vehicle equipped with a road tack dispenser means you will be able to remotely release tacks that will tear the tires of anyone who is pursuing you to shreds. And yes, there is a red button marked “tacks” you will be able to push. How much fun would that be?

 

External Mic

You’ll love the mobile communications capabilities these vehicles come equipped with. The external mic will allow you to enjoy protected communication with anyone outside your vehicle, whether they are a threat or not. You won’t have to worry about opening yourself up to danger by exiting your vehicle for necessary communication when you have this capability.

 

Run-Flat Tire Systems

With run-flat tires, you won’t have to worry about being stopped while you’re trying to escape because you have a flat tire. These tires will carry you at 50 – 70 miles per hour, which is fast enough to escape the vast majority of dangerous situations.

 

Smoke Screen

When the SHTF, this feature will allow you to become a magician and do a disappearing act with the touch of a button. The machine works by heating an oil-based mixture that will mix with the air and condense into a mist that will render you invisible. It’s an especially fun way to throw someone off your trail, too.

 

Oil Slick

The oil slick feature is just what it sounds like—with this option, you’ll be able to release a slippery trail of oil behind your vehicle that will prevent any vehicle that is trailing you from continuing. In ideal conditions, it’ll cause them to crash and render them immobile, giving you plenty of opportunity to escape.

 

Electric Shock Handles

One excellent way to keep unwanted intruders from entering your vehicle is to shock them with a 120-volt current when they touch your door handles. Who is going to be able to climb into your car while they’re being shocked? No one, and that’s exactly the way you want it.

 

Weapons

Last on our list, but definitely not least—weapons. You can get a security vehicle with forward-facing M16 assault weapons, rear-facing mine-launching tubes, and more. There are options for 9-millimeter Uzis, 44 magnums, and any other weapon you can dream of. If you can shoot it, a luxury security vehicle maker can build it.
