Underground hideout / man-cave (?)

9 posts in this topic

Latest pic of the underground facility about 5 miles from my home. Entrance/exit is via a "Bilco" door, made to look like a utility company's work hatch. Only the door is visible from the outside. Six inches of concrete poured over metal roof and completely covered with soil. Original plan was for storage but I made it awfully big for just that! Contemplating addition of permanent electrical, ventilation, etc.

Holy caholy! thats cool man! If I ever win it big in the lottery that is somthing I have always wanted is an underground shelter/hideaway/man cave. During normal times what better way to man cave it up and get away from the miss's for a bit by shutting a steel door and climbing down a ladder to an underground lair! I will have to start calling you Bruce Wayne.

dozens of people know about it.  My little spider hole was dug in 2 nights. Half of it the first night, the excavated dirt was dumped into a creek and the concealed lid was made and emplaced. Next night, it was finished. Now I walk by it about once a month, to see if there's any sign of anyone having messed with it. Even if someone does find it, pre-shtf, there's nothing there to make them return to it, or even remember it (most likely)  But it's a way to get out of sight, and stay out of sight as I enlarge it, post shtf.

it's just a spiderhole. I could have 5-6 more just like it, without a lot of trouble, and almost zero actual expense. I aint putting lots of time or money into something that I hope I never need and which is no fun at all. anything really nice will have people in it before you can get there, and more coming as fast as they can get there. Which is nothing I want anything to do with.

    • Books and wood carving here.....and sutureing,.. to go with the wood carving.
    • We are dealing with a narcissistic blackmailer like a robber in a bank with a room full of hostages and that is the scenario we have a madman with nukes threatening the whole world, if his demands are not met he may well sell weapons to our enemies, to bolster their position. When there is a madman in the room full of hostages with a gun you take him out. In this case we cannot afford for any of his military elite to survive him because if they have orders to launch or attack Seoul a city of millions he or surviving hierarchy will lash out. The strike has to be unseen and lay waste to Pyongyang timed with strikes to wipe out the military ability to use rockets and artillery I am just as sure they have Exocet m38 type missiles as well as many weapons we have turned from because of world opinion, that places us at a small disadvantage in close combat or naval surface warfare. It is a well known eastern tactic to get in so close so that their enemy cannot use any extraordinary weapons without killing themselves. This is why a conventional war with North Korea as it would kill millions in Seoul our troops and destroy many of our vessels and aircraft that threat alone make consider the nuclear option is the only course or we risk millions of innocent civilians and 35 thousand of our own troops as well as many thousands of sailors and air crews.  nuclear weapons are mass destruction indiscriminate and have long lasting implications if there is any destruction and indiscriminate killing I want it to be on them not us or South Koreans. Those that think we could merge the two are misunderstanding that like the old Japanese soldiers of World War 11 they were so indoctrinated they thought we were going to cannibalize rape and turn them all into salves as well as their leader was "god" most are just as institutionalized as a life sentenced criminal.  I sure don't like this but unless we are willing to fight the Korean War all over again with 10 to  100 times more losses against a country that is but an attack dog  of China that has gone off it's leash. China has created a Frankenstein and the monster may turn on them and that is what China fears just as much as a war that pushes millions of refugees over their borders. India and China have sent troops to repel refugees ------- Whhaaatt no open borders whats the world coming to.
    • Really great post and questions. I'm a woman and I'll ponder this a bit more before responding. (No offense taken at all BTW).
    • yea it's been a while glad your back.
    • If it were not for spell check it would look like the ramblings of Ted Kaczynski, bad enough my my lack of punctuation and tendency of dropping letters from my ring and pinky fingers it would take the investigators of the dead sea scrolls to decipher the ramblings IMO. Or did you mean Chicago typewriter ? I have proof read my stuff and found I drooped a paragraph of essential information primary to the topic.
