If I’m in the area of a nuke blast. I’d run toward it. No way would I wanna be a survivor in a waste land.

Well, Neil Young put out an album in '74 called On The Beach, so I guess the party was over and done with for decades by the time you started using that term....

I live close enough to Pendelton to know if there is anything happening the surrounding area will be messy. I won't have to be scrounging for food or battling zombies, there just won't be any.

Don't these billionaires realize that if SHTF, their ex-SEAL bodyguards will end up with the bunker and the trophy wife?

I remember the small underground shelters they advertised in the '50s. I always wondered what it would smell like in there after a few days of everybody sweating and pooping in those small things. I also remember getting up early in the mornings, sitting in the front yard looking east on mornings they would have a nuckear test in Nevada. We lived south of the San Joaquin Valley in a little town. When the thing went off, there was a bright flash of light followed by a sharp, short crack like a thunderclap.

I saw the movie in the theater when it was released in 1960. That has been my reference when discussing the popularity of us bonds and usd in the post 08 world..

It is an on the beach strategy.

Don't the Mormons have it in their covenant? (Not sure if that's the right word)

They must have at least 3 months worth of food in storage??? Do they have shelters as well?
