So, while any self-respecting person surely has an escape plan mapped out for their own survival, millionaires are people too. They just have more money to spend on solving life’s problems. While not all people of means take this responsibility seriously, the ones who do are a shining example to us all. Their “get out of town” looks a lot different than most people’s. Whoever said the rich are disconnected from reality must be thinking of the middle-class.
Today on Rob Raskins’ Millionaire Survivalist, we’ll consider how the millionaire’s reaction to a SHTF or EOTW scenario plays out very differently than that of even the most vigilant survivalist of lesser means.
We Don’t Need No Stinking Airports!
So, when the news comes that stock prices fell and a mass pandemonium is occurring in every major city, everyone screams. The big boss stands and says, “Folks, remain calm. Just get your families out of the city as soon as possible. I recommend not using the roads because traffic will be predictably impossible.” Someone retorts, “But, sir, the airports are all on lockdown.” The boss sneers with disgust and says, “Airports? Why on earth would you be going to an airport? Wheels up in five. Let’s move!”
So, when the sirens go off during the board meeting, everyone but the money man runs for the elevator or the stairwell. The boss, CEO, owner, the money man often has a private elevator that his security detail escorts him to. It’s likely the only fireproof and sometimes bulletproof place to run, and it locks behind him. More importantly, there’s no access by anyone without the key, thumbprint, retina scan, you get the idea.
To the roof, they ride, walk straight to a helicopter, and fly to a predetermined spot based on reports of where the most and least amount of danger is. In some cases, it flies to a bunkhouse. In others, it could fly to a yacht in the Caribbean, party already in progress. While in others, it may be flying them to the helipad on their home’s roof to pick up family and then be escorted to their private airstrip.
Once they’re air-born in their high-altitude jet, they’ve got options. One is to fly to their nuclear-proof luxury compound with a lifetime supply of water, food, and other necessities for the extended stay. The security detail has access to surveillance, boots on the ground, scouts in the trees, GPS, and a trade network.
With access to transportation and money in key locations by air, land, and sea, safe passage, continued business, and protection of assets can continue from the safety of the bunker. There’ve even been reports of allowing key people into their compound in case the kids grow up and need suitable mating options. You know, to continue the bloodline.
