If you’re a true believer in the EMP scenario, or, if you’ve read ‘One Second After’ a few times too many, this might be the eBay auction for you.

I looked at one of these for sale near Whitehall a few years back. The dealbreaker was that there was no water. This one is a little bigger and apparently has plumbing. Expensive, but you couldnt build hardened facility like this nowadays for twice the price.
eBay bunker for sale
Hmm..you know, having a tall, flat, oil-rig type platform in the backyard would make an absolutely bitchin’ place for a wind-turbine generator…..
Holy crap, I think I found my new home.
Im telling ya, folks…eBay is the best thing to hit the preparedness-minded world since the advent of freeze dried food.
USPS dropped off another pair of field phones today. Heh…I love these things. When I have Commander Zero’s Post Nuclear Love Bunker up and running these babies will be used for the various observation posts. Additionally, there will most definitely be one down by the locked gate…because coming ont ZeroLand unannounced is *such* a bad idea.
In addition to the phones themselves, Im also bidding on a couple 1/4 mile spools of wire and a couple headsets for these things.
Interestingly, most of the small, easily affordable acquisitions are done or very close to being done. There are two outstanding acquisitions however: uber-reliable vehicle (see earlier post on the subject) and the nice piece of remote real estate that will become the legendary haven that is Rancho Ballistica.
For now, I’ll just settle for the bare land…I can always build at a later date. Id just like to have the actual property. I think thats what the next post will be about…
Praise be to eBay…the best source for military goodies since I bought that duffel bag of M16 magazines out of the back of a guys Citation in the Domino’s parking lot.
Commander Zeros Ultimate Dream Home (Rancho Ballistica) will have need for these things. The TA312 is the phone you used to see on M*A*S*H that radar would wind the crank on and yell “Sparky?”. You hook it up to some two strand wire and you have telephone communications between two points. Just the ticket for communications between the main house and the observation posts or the locked front gate waaaaaaaaay down the road. Best of all, its about $40 for the pair and another $9 for the Technical Manual. This is good. I’ll test ‘em out, clean em up, lay in a half mile of wire and secure them in the bunker. Will probably get another couple of them for parts and extras…..
They should be just the ticket for people at the gate letting me know theyre there. (And believe me, when you come onto Commander Zero’s property you do not want him to not know youre there….)
Next up: personal radio comms.
