This world is littered with thousands of bunkers and bomb shelters that were left from World War II and the Cold War era. I came to this new idea after seeing all my other options canceled from a low budget. So the two options I have is travel and keep traveling, and while traveling finding the best one of these artifacts suited to my needs.
You can find these places is places such as Flickr and DeviantArt, because they are kind of hard to find on google.
And squatting isn't a new practice for me, I've been traveling america for the past couple of years squatting in abandoned buildings, factories, and schools, and it's a very enjoyable hobby. It might be a problem to new comers to the idea, and people who can't bring themselves to break laws. But most the time it is completely legal to settle on these structures, even possibly doing Adverse possession, making the property yours. Alot of these structures are open to the public, hobos, graffiti artist, so it's no real problem if that's the worry.
The Up sides to the this is that these structures were built by the government and large companies, making these structures very strong and durable. It could even cost anywhere from a few hundred thousand to a few million to duplicate alot of these structures, that now lay with no purpose. So why not us them?
My next traveling experience after saving a few thousand will be traveling america and finding everyone I can, and I might even post pictures and info of each on here, in case other people need to use that information. The best choics for area so far or mid-america and mid and west canada. I hope to explore it all.
I would even love to set up a community of sooner or later, or if anyone wants to join in on the idea.
Plus it's just a fun past time to explore these huge bunkers, fallout shelters, missile silos, etc.
But there is always things to worry about when you found one to settle in. It's probably best not to make it a long time home, until right before TSHTF, to keep people from being suspicious and/or paranoid.
And these places are sometimes very unhealthful to live in: bacteria, mold, stagnate air, setting water.
So once yo found one, clean it up as much as you can. I will even be setting up green power supply, such as wind turbine generators and solar panels.
