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.

 

  • Nuclear, biological, and chemical air filtration
  • A volcanic ash scrubber
  • Chemical air filtration
  • Five separate sources of power, including generators and wind turbines
  • Design that is meant to survive a nuclear blast
  • Three armories with tactical gear and heavy artillery
  • A remote-controlled sniper post
  • Armored vehicles
  • Armed guards
  • 10-foot-thick walls
  • A school
  • A digital weather station
  • Elevator and stairwell access
  • Outdoor guards
  • Hydroponic gardens
  • Stocked aquaponics rooms
  • A reverse osmosis water filtration system
  • Tanks that hold 75,000 gallons of water
  • A jail cell
  • Dental and medical facilities
  • Storage and walk-in freezers with five years of food and supplies
  • A 50,000-gallon swimming pool and spa
  • Workout facilities
  • A bar
  • A general store
  • A movie theater
  • A library
  • A climbing wall
  • Air hockey and other games
  • A pet park

 

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.

A Dozen Survival Skills Your Kids Need to Know

A Dozen Survival Skills Your Kids Need to Know

No matter how young your children are, it’s not too soon to make sure they’re prepared.

This post is part two in a two-part series. You can read part one here.

Protecting your children from danger is a survival instinct in itself, but your protection alone may not be enough if the worst should happen. It’s difficult to think about, but if a natural or unnatural disaster strikes and society collapses, you may not be in a position to save them. In fact, they may need to save your life, or you might not be there at all. So it’s worth taking the time now to make sure your children have basic survival skills.

Children learn by doing, and they learn by example. Even if you live in an urban area, you can take your kids into the woods on camping trips or even just day trips to teach them about nature. When you are stockpiling supplies, or building a shed, or even gutting a fish, let your children observe you and explain step-by-step how and why. Kids look up to their parents, so you’ll want to set an example of what true self-sufficiency looks like.

 

12 Survival Skills to Teach Your Kids TODAY

Your children need to master the following skills now, before it’s too late.

  • Safe drinking water – No matter how well-prepared your children are, they won’t make it far without safe, clean drinking water. It’s imperative that your children understand how to find water, identify if it’s safe, and how to filter and boil it to make it safe.
  • Understanding plants – After the SHTF, there won’t be a grocery store, so your children will need to learn how to find and grow their own food. Even young children can begin learning how to grow from seeds, how to identify edible plants, and which plants have medicinal properties.
  • Weapons-making and self-defense – Teach your children how to make weapons such as knives and bows and arrows and how to use them. They should understand how to defend themselves with and without a weapon, so make sure you work with them to teach them basic self-defense techniques.
  • Firearms safety – Your older children should understand the ins and outs of firearms safety, including how to load, assemble, disassemble, and clean a weapon. Most firing ranges allow children and offer training courses, which are worth looking into.
  • Hunting wild game – Your kids need to know how to hunt with a slingshot, how to hunt with a bow and arrow, how to operate a firearm, how to hunt small and large game, and how to prepare game.
  • Fishing – Teach your children the basics of fishing, such as how to make a fishing rod, how and where to catch fish, and how to clean and prepare fish. They should also be able to identify which fish are edible.
  • Food safety – Your children should know how to tell if food has spoiled or is otherwise unsafe to eat, and they should understand basic hygienic food prep techniques. They should also be shown how to open a can of food even if they don’t have a can opener.
  • Building shelter – Your children should understand how to stay dry, how to find shelter or build it, and how to stay concealed in the wild. You can make this into a fun game where you challenge them to stay hidden from you in the outdoors.
  • Fire safety – Be sure your child knows how to make a fire, even without matches, and how they can cook on an open fire. This involves going over fire safety essentials and making sure they understand the responsibility that goes along with building fires safely.
  • How to barter – Not only should your kids know how to trade, they should understand what kinds of items and skills can be traded. You can let them practice by selling old toys they no longer want at a garage sale.
  • Finding their way – If your kids don’t know how to use a compass, read a map, and how to find their way using the stars, it’s time to teach them. It’s also a good idea to make sure your kids pay attention to where you’re going so they’ll know how to reach landmarks and people.
  • Hygiene and first aid – There’s a lot that can go wrong if you don’t stay clean and dry. Teach your children basic health and hygiene and first aid. It is the key to being healthy and staying that way, and it could save their life or someone else’s.
  • Being part of a group – In modern society, far too many kids are whiners who melt down every time they’re asked to do something. This won’t work after TEOTWAWKI, so the time to nip this bad habit in the bud is NOW.

Helicopter Owners SHTF Guide

When time is of the essence you need to fly over the disaster. This is the way to do it.

The ultra-wealthy keep a private helicopter gassed up, stocked, and ready to go at all times. Any escape plan made by wealthy politicians involves helicopter transport at some point. Why? Because they know their lives literally depend on it. If you’re a person of means who is concerned about nuclear attacks, natural disasters, and social unrest, it’s time for you to consider investing in a private helicopter.

What You Need to Know Before You Buy

First things first: let’s talk cost. You can find a range of single-engine turbine helicopters in the $3M to $4M range. Twin-engine models are available in the $5M to $10M range. Some of the most expensive helicopter models can go well up into the millions. One thing to keep in mind is the more you spend, the more people you can take with you, the father you can go, and the faster you can do it. More expensive models hold more fuel, and some will be able to take you as many as 350 miles before you have to stop to refuel.

 

The Airbus H155 will run you a cool $10M. For your investment you’ll be treated to refreshing air conditioning, supple leather seats, and an in-flight entertainment system. The AgustaWestland AW609 costs $14M, and it’s worth every penny because it flies twice as fast as a typical helicopter while giving the operator the ability to take off and land vertically. When your landing options are limited, this is incredibly important.

 

Stratford, Connecticut is the home of Lockheed-Martin’s airport manufacturer Sikorsky, who are innovators in autonomous flight technology. They have developed a pilotless helicopter that is capable of taking people with no helicopter flight experience on guided tours. While this technology is simply incredible, it’s also completely unrealistic in a crisis situation. Especially if an EMP attack is involved. Owning your helicopter outright is the ideal situation, because at TEOTWAWKI it’s not going to be possible to rent. However, for the time being, renting may be the way to go while you decide what your next move will be and which features work best for your needs.

 

You don’t have to buy a helicopter in order to learn how to fly one. Another option you may want to consider is a fractional corporate lease. For a few thousand a month, you’ll be allotted a certain number of hours to use the helicopter. This bundle deal offers convenience because it includes things owners have to worry about like fuel, oil, insurance, and landing fees.

 

If you’re primarily using a helicopter to avoid a long, crowded commute or to fly out to the islands for a weekend, then you will be able to decide whether you want to fly or be flown by a professional pilot. In a SHTF situation, it is highly likely that you will have no such luxury. The time it would spend to wait for your personal pilot to arrive could mean the difference between life and death—and what if he’s unable to arrive at all? This is why it is essential that you receive helicopter training.

 

What You’ll Need to Get Your Helicopter Pilot License

There are some requirements to get your license here in the United States, such as being at least 17 years old and being able to speak, read, and write in English. These shouldn’t be a problem for you. After all, you ascend to your financial position because you aren’t a quick thinker. To get your license you must:

  • Pass a practical test
  • Pass a written test
  • Be endorsed by an instructor
  • Meet the aeronautical experience requirements
  • Hold a student pilot certificate
  • Comply with Federal Aviation Regulations

 

Most areas have flying schools where you’ll be able to get the minimum required 40 hours of training (and possibly many more), which can easily take a year to complete. You’ll need 20 hours of training from an authorized instructor and 10 hours of solo flight training. This will include three hours of cross-country, three takeoffs and landings, and more. You can do home study, but spending time with an instructor is a much more valuable use of your time and resources. They are knowledgeable and you can ask them questions as they come up. There are other courses you may also want to consider, depending upon your unique needs and your location, such as open-water and winter survival courses.

 

What You’ll Need On-Board

Despite the luxury features and amenities that are available in today’s most upscale helicopters, the model you choose and what you bring onboard are a matter of survival. You’ll want to make sure you have everything you’ll need ready to go ahead of time, in case you need to take off in a hurry. In your helicopter survival kit, you’ll want to keep a sleeping bag, warm clothing, a first aid kit, an axe and a bow saw, your essential survival tools and personal items, and, of course, firearms and plenty of ammo. You’ll also want to make sure you have aircraft maps of your area and enough jet fuel on-hand to get to your final destination, wherever it may be.

 

 

These are the Top 10 most luxurious helicopters in the world.

 

When you need to bug out in a hurry, you’ll want one of these.

The Survivalist Mindset: Do You Have It?

Survival isn’t always about the gear you carry…

Hello everyone, this is Rob Raskin of Las Vegas, and this week I’d like to talk to you about what it takes to be mentally prepared to survive a disaster. We’ve all heard stories of people who went into the wild with a lot of planning and equipment and then perished. We’ve also heard unbelievable stories about people who found themselves in life-threatening circumstances with no preparation and made it out alive. What’s the difference between those who make it and those who do not?

Your most powerful and reliable survival tool isn’t something you can buy: It’s your mind. Even when you have no gear, no supplies, and it seems like you have no chance, as long as you are mentally tough you have what it takes to get through it. Often, to get others through it with you as well. Conversely, even with the most high-tech, sophisticated gear and weapons, if you’re mentally weak and you can’t handle pressure, you may very well be doomed.

Traits a True Survivalist Must Have
Here at CATS2010, I have shared an ongoing series of riveting survival stories that have captivated my attention. Despite harrowing odds, these individuals survived because they shared the following traits.

• The ability to embrace learning – A true survivalist reads, researches, practices, seeks out mentors, and looks for new ways to do everything. If you’re never satisfied the first time because you know you can do it better, this describes you.

• A positive mental attitude – A true survivalist knows a defeatist attitude is the first step in…well, defeat. You are going to make it because your mind is sharp and you know how to stay focused, without letting ego, fear, stress, and emotions get in the way.

• A commitment to self-care – How are you going to survive if you aren’t strong enough to endure? The simple answer is, you aren’t. A true survivalist stays in shape by running, lifting, hiking, climbing, swimming, and doing whatever they can to keep strong and active.

• A community they are a part of – Your chances of survival are greatly increased if you don’t go it alone. When the SHTF, you’ll want a trained team behind you, each of whom brings a skill to the table. A true survivalist knows how to build, nurture, and maintain these alliances.

• The motivation to push through the worst of it – A true survivalist will persevere after others have thrown in the towel. Your mental toughness and refusal to give up will not only keep you alive—it will help the people around you to survive.

• Natural leadership ability – A born survivalist is a born leader. You know how to cut through the BS and get straight to the heart of the matter so you can do what needs to be done. People look to you for guidance because they know you can be counted on.

• The ability to be adaptable – Throughout the history of the planet, organisms that could not adapt and evolve have died out. This will include you if you can’t identify what is worth keeping and what you need to let go of if you want to stay alive.

If you see these traits in yourself, you’re off to a great start and likely to survive the worst. If not, it’s not too late to develop these traits now, but someday soon it may be. Time to get started!

How to Develop the Survival Mindset
One of the best ways to develop the strong, positive survival mindset you’ll need is to practice endurance techniques. Push your body and your mind beyond anything you’ve previously expected of yourself. Workout harder. Run farther. See how long you can tolerate immersion in cold water. Use visualization and meditation to focus and picture yourself overcoming obstacles. Step outside of your comfort zone and do something you always said you would not.

One exercise you may find helpful is to picture various disaster scenarios and imagine how you would react. What would you do if there was a terrorist attack wherever you are right now, using whatever is at your immediate disposal? Would you be able to defend yourself? Would you be able to help others? Do you know where the escape routes are? Do you know which rooms can be locked? Once you consider the possibilities, it becomes obvious there is a lot to mentally prepare for.

On top of the possibility of terror attacks, Americans today face social unrest, EMP strikes, natural disasters like flash floods, earthquakes, and tornadoes, and more. Once you have trained your mind to think and react like a survivor, you will have a significant advantage over those who weren’t prepared.

The late Colonel Jeff Cooper discusses mental conditioning for combat.

You can cultivate a survival mindset.

The Oppidum: Opulence Below the Czech Republic

This isn’t your grandfather’s survivalist bunker, unless your grandfather was Randolph Hearst.

The US and Russia have 14,000 nuclear weapons between them. If you were a billionaire and you lived that close to that many nukes, wouldn’t you make sure you were prepared to go underground? Whoever is lucky enough to purchase this state-of-the-art shelter will be able to customize it to their own unique needs.

Some say the Czech Republic’s Oppidum is the world’s most luxurious private post-apocalypse bunker. How much are you willing to invest in your survival? Only the 1% need apply. The Oppidum is strictly for those for whom money is no object. In fact, the Czech entrepreneur behind the impressive structure, Jakub Zamrazil, will not disclose the price. Zamrazil says the price, and, eventually, the buyer, will remain top-secret, adding to the property’s mysterious allure.

Whoever ends up buying the Oppidum may end up having the best lifestyle on earth, once civilization as we know it has been destroyed. While those above-ground can look forward to hunger, disease, violence, and more, inside this beyond-premium shelter one can enjoy:

  • Living in a 323,000-square-foot mansion, 77,000-square-feet of which are underground.
  • Swimming in an underground pool, or relaxing in the spa.
  • Reading in a library that holds a lifetime worth of books.
  • Sipping wines from a private wine cellar.
  • Gardening under simulated natural light.
  • Screening films in the private cinema.

With so much space in this massive complex, you will find anything you need to retain your wealth and power as a new society begins again from the ground-up. There are even medical and surgical facilities, because let’s face it, even for the very wealthy good health is something that can’t be bought if there are no doctors around.

If you’re interested in owning the Oppidum, you’d better move fast. Zamrazil is currently in negotiations with several multi-billionaires, and we can expect more to show interest in the future.

 

Take a look inside the Oppidum.
