When the Weight of the World Is on Your Shoulders, Better Prepared Than Scared, Right?

It must be getting close to December, and perhaps, the end of the world as we know it. Well, that’s if you believe all that doomsday Mayan calendar stuff. Anyway, I’m guessing that’s why “survival shelters” are trending on Yahoo! Yesterday, Yahoo! News featured an article and video segment about California-based Atlas Survival Shelters, whose slogan is “Better prepared than scared.”

 

The shelters are made from 32×10-foot metal tubes and are installed 20 feet below ground. Accessible via a ground-level “hatch,” the chamber will keep occupants safe in the event of “pandemic outbreak, civil unrest, malicious mobs and biological, nuclear fallout or attacks from home grown terrorists or other nations,” according to the company’s web site.

 

With a feel that’s part park service cabin and part submarine, the shelters feature rustic wood, bunk beds, televisions, kitchens, a toilet, and they are customizable. They also boast a secondary escape hatch, just in case your main entrance is blocked by debris or discovered my marauders. And they’re offering a special deal right now: Get 10 acres of land free when you buy a shelter.
