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.

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.

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.

You Know You Want to Buy a Tank

You Know You Want to Buy a Tank

It has been estimated that there are as many as 1,000 private tank owners in the United States today. Why aren’t you one of them?

Here at the Millionaire Survivalist, we’re not saying you’re going to need a tank after the apocalypse. But we’re also not saying you’re not going to need one. Once you’ve experienced driving a tank yourself, you’re going to be looking for excuses to add one to your personal arsenal anyway.

It is 100% legal to own a tank in the United States, though laws do vary by country. After the SHTF, law and order will most likely be right out the window anyway. Currently, you can legally purchase a tank online for just $25K, which is a small price to pay for a weapon that makes a statement like this one. However, that is for a very basic tank. There are many high-end options available. Russia’s T90 is a bargain at $2.23 million, South Korea’s K-2 Black Panther is available for $8.5 million, and Leclerc, France’s AMX-56 will set you back $27.183 billion.

It is completely legal to own a tank in the US and many other countries. There are no US Federal restrictions if you own a tank that has been demilitarized, but that’s not going to do you any good if society has collapsed. However, if you want a tank that has had the main gun disabled so you can

practice driving it on your own private land, you will be free to do so without restrictions in most areas. Just make sure to check your local and state laws first. If they prohibit tank ownership, consider moving.

Registering Your NFA Weapon

Tanks that have not been demilitarized are classified as destructive devices by the NFA. There is an amnesty period of 30 to 90 days involved if you want to buy a tank. That means there’s going to be a background check, you’ll need to register it, and you’ll need to prepare yourself for the fact that there’s going to be a ton of paperwork and you’re going to pay a lot of taxes. The transfer process is involved, but you’ll get there, eventually. This is definitely a case where good things come to those who wait.

Because of their NFA classification, if you want to take your tank across state lines, you’re going to have to report it to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives first.

Take a Tank for a Test Drive

If you want to take a tank for a test drive before you invest, you’re in luck because there are plenty of places to do so all across the US.

Nevada At Battlefield Vegas you will find a British Chieftain Mk8 that has been refitted to become an M1A1 Abrams replica. Yes, you will be able to drive it over a car. One of the fun things about going with this company is they’ll send a military Humvee to get you from your hotel. This is the place to go if you don’t want to deal with safety classes

Minnesota At Drive A Tank in Kasota, you will be able to drive tank models FV433 Abbott SPG, FV432 APC, Russian T-55 MBT, Chieftain MBT, and Sherman E8 right over a car. They also offer a two-car package, and, yes, you are reading this right, there’s a mobile home package. Expect a comprehensive experience here, with safety training and a look into the history of tanks.

Georgia It just isn’t right to visit the South without a trip to Tank Town USA. This is your chance to see the Blue Ridge Mountains. You’re going to want to bring a friend here, because they offer “adventures” involving a second driver and the option to add a second car crush. They also have an excavator operation package. That’s like the Tonka Truck you had as a child, but so much better.

Florida If you’re in Florida for the winter, check out Melbourne’s Tank America. Their Advanced Tank Package offers a terrain course and car crush in an FV433. Their Tier Elite Package is billed on the site as “Drive Crush Shoot.” Sounds good to me! Tank America’s tank expeditions are only available on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so book your trip on the weekend.

Texas You can’t crush a car at Texas’s Ox Hunting Ranch, but you can drive and shoot real WWII tanks. And they’ve got flamethrowers! This place has a fantastic selection of tanks to choose from, including a Sherman Tank, a Leopard Tank, a Chieftain Tank, and a Russian T-34-85. If you own property in Texas, consider a demilitarized tank on your own private land if you want to run a car over. Go here to the Ox Hunting Ranch to shoot.

If you’re serious about buying a tank, you can sometimes find them on ArmsList and at DriveTanks.com.
