Family’s Underground House Doubles as Apocalypse Shelter
Lifestyle| | By David Clarke
Despite no real or concrete evidence that the end of the world is coming anytime soon, some people always seem to be worried that it’s right around the corner and they prepare accordingly. There have been multiple times throughout the history of the world that people thought the end was nigh.
For example, many people thought that when the year turned from 1999 to 2000, it would lead to events that would cause the world to end. There was mass hysteria among some people, but as it turned out, nothing happened. Then, people thought the world would end on June 6, 2006 (the date signifying the number “666” in Christian eschatology). But yet again, the world went on as normal. In 2012, people felt that the end of the Mayan calendar signified the apocalypse, but of course, nothing happened.
Even though all of these supposed “end of the world” situations yielded nothing of the sort, some people still feel the need to prepare for the worst. Thousands and thousands of people keep a ton of canned food and water in their home just in case, and several take it to a whole other level. Some people actually construct underground houses and hideouts in case of a disaster on the surface.
One of the individuals who believes in the end of the world and wants to do something about it is Peter Larson. He believes that the end of the world is right around the bend, and that it will be due to a nuclear war. In order to survive this possible scenario, Larson came up with a $65,000 plan that will help him survive the end of the world.
In a secluded area in the remote mountains in Utah, Larson brought his plan to life. Twenty feet below the ground, Larson built a massive 50-foot doomsday bunker that included 13 bunk beds for his immediate family and grandchildren and anyone else close to him that needs help during hard times.
Larson made the bunker with steel pipe and outfitted it with an elaborate air filtration system, tons of storage, weapons, food, money and much more. While this all sounds great solution for his issue, there is one big problem.
The bunker is located numerous miles away from where Larson and his family live. This is obviously a problem if the end of the world happens without any real notice. But if you bring this up to Larson, he is not concerned at all. He says he will be prepared if the disaster strikes. He claims that he has reminded God on numerous occasions that he will need about 24 hours notice of the impending apocalypse.
Even if you don’t believe in his cause and share his same beliefs, you can’t fault him for doing what he wants. Below is a great video that will tell you more about his bunker, and it will take you on a tour of the bunker as well.
