Reminds me of something between the movies the "Burbs" and the "Time Machine's"  Eloi underground cannibals hovel.

 

Anyone that lives in that zone knows the frost line is between 4 to 6 foot deep so incoming water lines have to be deeper.

and these shelters would be like a cold freezer or fridge in the winter so a geothermal heating & cooling system, and no way would I trust electrical it would have to be a mechanical pump and when it gets that could you cannot count on that at all.

Solar would need to have a wind generator backup as the state gets 200 to 226 days of sunshine so 165 to 138 days of OH SH*T

It would take 40,000 BTU to heat the smallest unit,   thats a lot of cow chips per day and I did not see any cows and in 6 foot of snow that would be one hell of an easter egg hunt.

1 lb dung = 7,500 BTU NOW THAT WOULD TAKE A LOT OF SH*T  maybe your could borrow a cup from your neighbors --- fact is it is NOT feasible.

These numbers relate to growing gardening periods  snowfall is 20 to 44 inches so if your short your going to need a periscope !

Work in the winter ? where to shelter your animals ? where's the nearest town Where is the nearest tree ? 

Rainfall is 16 to 27 inches and I noticed no trees so where is all that heat people need going to come from ? and water to circulate

 

Blah blah blah --- I don't think so and if we have an EMP or some other anomaly that turns anything that runs on electricity to junk UH-OH 

 

Crunching the numbers it had to be a government facility it was loosing money on the drafting board........

it makes ZERO sense to set up anyplace where it gets/stays really cold or has lots of snow.. It makes very little sense to set up where it's hot, swampy, desert or barren mountains, either. A year after shtf, so many will be DEAD that you'll be free to travel as you wish. So set up someplace where moving  less than 50 miles (ie, easy bicycle ride in one day)  changes your elevation by 5000 ft and your temps by 40F. You'll be glad that you did so!

So go where everyone else is going ?  I thrive in inhospitable places and it keeps the vacationers OUT.

Without refrigeration the swamp is the perfect place for tons of food on the hoof both salt and fresh water fish fowl and beaucoup  mammals.

 

above the tree line there are fewer food critters or so large as you would have to process and make lots of smoke to keep it

 

Eskimos exist in cold Indians lived in the desert it was not because they were stupid but chose a life of isolation /ism to defend their families and bloodline from other groups and tribes either by a wall of snow high ground or inhospitable climate.

 

Your ONE size fits all has never worked the world is a HUGE PLACE not the place you envision as utopia.

One rifle fits all or one caliber fits all and 50 miles in a day UPHILL OR DOWNHILL what age group what about people with disabilities or children pregnant women what about animals to start a homestead like chickens goats rabbits wild rabbits do not do well in captivity !

 

planting beds for nomadic people plant now eat later ?  Weather has not been our friend Colorado and other states have had massive wildfires  try to escape with all your gear in a freak storm flood hail drought people mastered their region in order to survive. moving injects different conditions more wind rain more or less water from one side of any mountain range to the other can be a world of difference.

at altitude freak storms can drop the temps to life threatening levels and without antibiotics a simple cold / chill can turn into pneumonia.

mountain regions day temps are in the 60's 70's at night can be below freezing. mountains generally mens large carnivores and less resources than a SWAMP. where your surrounded by water in the mountains water may or may not be easy to find so foreknowledge would be helpful.

 

Making general statements without informing readers of the negatives is irresponsible.  rearing animals carpentry gardening reloading  welding mastering firearms hunting tracking are SKILLS that cannot be taught in days or weeks. and are the only hope for a future.and future generations IMHO.

Correct. I think the best decision on where to locate is based on available water supply. Without it, no matter where you are - you're stuck up. I also don't think riding 50 miles is feasible. Why not just invest in rural land and set-up there now, building a home and a life and doing all the prepping from that point? Maybe storing some secret caches away from the home in case of a BO. But, if you live rural to begin with (thankfully, like we do now), the likelihood of needing to BO decreases a lot, which means we can focus our attention on the physical surroundings nearby...learning the land, etc..

    • have a great time fishing snake...you almost convinced me to switch to linux though cause i am really tired of virus's...
    • I think I am a bit over technologically involved I just noticed I have 4 notebooks and a desktop and mobile phone within 5 foot 2 printers over a dozen flash drives SD micro SD cards external drives 2.5 and 3.5 etc etc etc.... then add in 2 monitors on my desktop a flat panel tv DVD player modem router and I can't count the burned CD\ DVD's  about a 20 gallon tote full as it got beyond me I decided to use old CD\DVD spindles to store my collections of software video and music then security system and my old school radio is tuned to a oldies country station pumping out a old Cajun favorite Jolie Blon by Doug Kershaw and I still haver books and tech journals. Of the computers one each one runs a different operating system and because certain jobs can only work easily with Windows I have one loaded for that purpose. Found I do not care for tablets and I relegate touch screens for my mobile. I plan on going for a few days fishing I think I need a break from connectivity conversation and routine although I really do not have routines varying is the key to keeping the carpet looking fresh  and tires from getting wear patterns, and ever degrading verbal and social skills from interaction with the same people much like child rearing when your best friend and only companion is 4 years old your one tick away from the nut hut. I am glad I don't have to raise children. I would like to have others try a "live" version of Linux boots from your CD | DVD drive and unless you allow it to create a save file once your computer is turned off all is gone no history or much of a foot print for anyone to dig in. this keeps hackers at bay because it is not a system that can be written to or altered a virus could only be placed in memory and as soon as you switch off that has no effect and will not infect your system. One step further I have one unit that has no Hard drive I keep a flash drive handy if there is something I want to save. Live versions can be Remastered or you can add or remove software and create your own version with software you need burn it and run it as a Live version with your specific "profile" for network login etc.  Breaking out learning new skills being annoyed and frustrated with some new medium  I tried oils and clay I tried to create a copy of Rodin's Thinker in miniature  ended up looking like a cow turd the door I painted looked great ! thats the limit of my oils and clay period LOL...I am great with latex though.        
    • honesty   Yup, some people can’t handle the truth!   My Favorite Animal 
      Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken." 
      She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else laughed. 
      My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal. 
      I told my dad what happened and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA He said they love animals very much.   I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef.   Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office. 
      I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again. 
      The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was. 
      I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken. 
      She sent me back to the principal's office. 
      He laughed, and told me not to do it again. 
      I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn’t like it when I am. 
      Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous military person I admired most. 
      I told her, "Colonel Sanders." 
      Guess where the heck I am now…
    • One I have been playing with is called Peach OSI  try either 64 bit the works or 32 bit the works Linuxlite Here is one that has worked on most all notebooks desktops and does it well   32 or 64 bit on this page older notebooks / laptops can use one of the many versions of Puppy Linux it is a matter of trial and error find the one that functions all your hardware and most likely t will be a trial to get wireless working but hard wired is not usually a problem. one area of new Puppy linux versions              another link  
    • I agree it is always good to collect all the information and then try to understand the text.  Many times when reading a technical text or treatise I have to look up the specific definitions so I can gather some understanding beyond my education. and some is not well written so you have to find other texts that may give you a glimmer of direction, I noticed in researching radiological  I became very aware that we are being paper screwed a lot of words and no real parameters as for ranges for micorsieverts Roentgens and a host of other technical jargon but I finally found that 2 sieverts are BAD more is worse !  Strange I could follow William F. Buckley just fine he had a starting and end with a point most of the drivel I read today is worse than my own writing and that is deplorable my sentences are runalong barley can say I use punctuation properly but I do not think in that fashion I type like I think but not near as fast that is why I have read some of my posts and find I lost a sentence ---- makes me have to go back and edit it a few times. As for the Bible no matter how much I read I can always see some other term Idea or relevance to another text in another book of the bible one sentence harbors worlds unseen and unknown and skipped over Genesis 4 WOW the first few chapters hold the history of the world and then you get a copy of the book of Enoch and you find there is another dimension we cannot see filled with beings from heaven and hell duking it out on our behalf truly fascinating and there is way more we live in a very mysterious world and realms beyond.
