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..

    • Earthquakes 38,997 in the past 365 days   _ Well that has always been, your just fear mongering WELL here is proof  Science states Earthquakes have increased over 200% Luke 21:11 and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.
    • I've completed a few armour steel knives that I made from AR-500 & AR-650 steel. Also made a Wakazashi from AR-500 with Kevlar handle. Have pictures that I would love to show & inspire fellow members to make things with their hands. My issue is that I've always had trouble posting pictures on this site. Help needed posting these Armour steel edge weapons. 
    • plums are one you need to keep planting from seed ad stagger over years as for no reason some just die their life span is 5 to 7 years it appears peaches need pruning smoking o keep off fungus and then a constant vigil against squirrels I just keep propagating everything and keep it separated in corners so if one batch gets a problem I can either try to treat it and if that does not work I can burn them off and blackberries dont die from cutting or burning they do not like herbicide in strength.  all I can say is try for winter garden crops send in your soil to your local farm bureau and see what if anything your soil needs for what your growing most times it is calcium and phosphorus potash magnesium I get mine from Epsom salt plain tums antacid is good quick calcium bone meal is for long term gardening is not for the meek or weak it is hard work and fickle weather not enough minerals wrong moon phase when planting change in jet stream brings in high winds that spread weeds or uncommon not local fungus insects or grass seeds and it's on like donkey kong one year we had a hail storm turned everything into a green ooze and killed cattle & horses busted fence post to the ground and beat the tin off part of the barn as well as made us re-roof the shingles on the house lucky the vehicles and tractors were under cover trees looked like winter set in but next year everything busted out like nothing happened in fact it seemed like everything had more foliage nature has its way another thing I always till the old greenery back in to the soil as soon as it looks like it is done fore before it dies off it is also good to have a couple of garden plots you need to let one go fallow every 7 years (Biblical)   lime is good incase your soil is to acidic your local ag extension can clue you in on anything you can explain I need to call mine as I can't raise cucumbers to save my life --- so far
    • New Chinese shipping container pod full O missiles so every shipping freighter is now a problem these rockets can go 400 miles in 10 seconds I only post this now because is is widely known but this is the future of hostile weapons and North Korea China and Iran know this as well so for all the stupid people that think a country has to have a ballistic system capable of thousands of miles your idiots these can be shipped trucked from a friendly port. as many vessels that carry a contingent of political ambassadors and other reasons may not or could be excluded from searches.  China has a container that is capable f controlling 4 other container weapons and can launch multiple types of rockets missiles decoys etc etc . or Multiple munitions from a single rocket. South of the boarder  Rafael south American military industrial complex Other packages can be stuffed into these taco's or eggrolls or spring rolls depending on the origin of these little beauties. the left better pull their head out of their azz and wake up as well as the lame fake news media. we still have no idea of where approximately  199 suitcase nukes are lost in the 1980's nor a box car of other things that went missing when the former USSR fell every country under it's control had arsenals of all kinds of party favors. Janes directory of military hardware and Popular science and a few other sites can educate people to new technology I am very very disappointed at the Fitzgerald because it make us America look like a bunch of rubes billions of dollars or R&D years of testing trials and this ship cost between 1.7 billion to 2 billion dollars and cannot evade a floating barge it is more than a challenge to wrap my mind around especially once you see the Satellite track of the ACX Crystal it appears to have purposely diverted from course and intentionally rammed the Fitzgerald then took a 90 degree diversion then altered course north east then doubled back south west then south back toward the Fitzgerald and NO repeat NO signal supposedly came from the Fitzgerald but from the ACX Crystal and with a time discrepancy of over an hour and there had to be backup weather hand held or alternate communications onboard  not to mention if the alphabet soup watch all and knows all why was a strike on a 2 billion dollar vessel not noticed were they watching miley cyrus twerking  GPS military is within 1 foot where are all the billions of dollars pissed away by our government going who the hell watches the watchers and why have a few hundred people tasked to watch and duty it is to protect and defend our people in harms way ? I want heads to roll court-marshals satellite companies fined engineers fired tracking and control officers and staff stripped of their classifications in all levels that had access to this intel in eal time because now who in the hell believes we are a world power this makes us look like a paper tiger run by fools and every company that had a hand in building that ship should be drug through the ringer fined fired from government contracts restricted from bids if their equipment was at fault and it should ba open transparent and all the guilty should be made public. Why am I so upset because those 7 people were left to drown to save the other on that ship locked in waiting to die all the while knowing what would happen once that hatch was closed and probably in the dark looking for air pockets trying to stay alive hoping beyond hope some one could break through or find an alternative hatch and get them out from a stranger than fiction supposed accident General Keene his version read like a script all the traffic could be seen on satellite in real time and he said "it was dark" 2 billion dollars cutting edge radar sonar and other computers a 360 degree bubble for out to at least 60 miles and that is what he had to say ? Susan Rice was more believable when she said Benghazi was started by an Internet video. we need to start calling him Susan and the other dip in the road Admiral John Kirby then press secretary under Obama his fictional account ought to win him a Pulitzer prize his acting an Oscar IMHO. if we ever need 3 test pilots to fly a rocket ship to  Uranus John McCain General Keene and Admiral Kirby  just to round out the crew Nancy Pelosi can run communications as she is an anus here maybe she can communicate with the Uranuses there.  Just a thought and an opinion I could or could not be mistaken or have misspoke about this poor misunderstood people
