A San Diego man is preparing for doomsday by building the largest underground shelter for those seeking safety during an apocalyptic event. Amenities will include anything a doomsday shelter would need, such as a golf course, wine bar and even a dance floor for those waiting for the world to end.
The underground camp is located 130 feet underground. The doors will be constructed of two-foot-thick steel, lined with concrete.
The builder of the complex, Robert Vicino, expressed his thoughts on why such a huge safe haven would be helpful:
Hopefully, it will never be needed, but if it is, it will be priceless. We said, ‘Let’s not make it just available for a catastrophe, but let’s turn it into a 24/7 resort where our members can go until the moment of truth. You get your cake and eat it too.
The resort has already opened its doors to the outside world, to allow visitors a chance to enjoy the amenities before any catastrophe hits. Guests can park in any of the 1,500 available RV sites and the 10% capacity already makes a statement to the “need” for such an idea.
We have emergency room doctors, surgeons, bankers, lawyers and people from all aspects of life.
Vicino states he isn’t on the bandwagon of those expecting the end of the world to come soon, but if it does, he will be ready. He does believe it is important to watch for warning signs of any disaster that may come.
The key is you have to leave before it’s too late. But if you can get there after the fact, we’ll still let you in.
If you have an RV and an extra $20,000 lying around, you might consider Kansas as your vacation spot this year. If you really want to “get away,” try underground. It may be the only place left where you can have some peace and quiet for a vacation.
This may seem a silly idea, but he and the other vacationers are enjoying the amenities before disaster strikes. With all the severe damage the planet has suffered in storms over the past couple of years, each state might want to consider building an underground park of some type.
This project begs one question from me: With the weight and size of these RV’s, if the Earth is suffering a huge earthquake, would it make sense to have the huge pieces of metal parked all around you? Especially when you and the metal vehicles are underground?
Hey, I guess we shouldn’t judge. He’ll probably be relaxing in the spa while the rest of us are floating down stream during an apocalyptic moment.
