The steel bunkers were once used to store ammunition, but now they are home to the world’s largest survival community. It’s always fascinating to see how other people live their lives. There are numerous television shows and online videos that address this topic. This includes a video by Kara and Nate, two popular YouTube nomadic travelers. Kara and Nate traveled to South Dakota’s Black Hills to see a former military base.
The military base’s underground bunkers are made of steel and concrete and were once used to store ammunition. They have now been converted into living spaces at the Vivos XPoint community. These bunkers are leased for between $35,000 and $45,000, with an annual rent payment of $1000. Dante Vicino, who leases the bunkers and knows more about the community than anyone else, guided them through the bunkers. He had some interesting things to say, including his personal thoughts on why the bunkers exist.
“I still don’t subscribe to the total armageddon on a personal level just because it doesn’t really sit well with me, and it doesn’t do me any good to occupy my mind with that. We wouldn’t be doing this project if there wasn’t a market for this type of product, for this solution to that problem. But I think how we approach it can be a lot more interesting, positive, and wholesome than simply saying, ‘Well, the world’s going to end someday,'” he said.
They also spoke with some of the residents to get their perspectives. This included one couple who claimed they were not prepared and did not expect their lives to end in this manner. They had fled California before the pandemic because things were getting out of hand. They were on their way to Florida when they came across these bunkers and decided to pitch their tent there.
People have also spoken out about the dangers of having preconceived notions about those who choose to live in a bunker. They claim that much of what you see on TV is excessive, and that they are simply trying to live their lives in a practical manner. Given the difficulties we faced over the past year, it appears to be even more practical than most of us realize.
