Bunker builders cite a long list of client fears, from war and terrorism to megastorms and epic earthquakes. But the customers themselves aren't talking. "Secrecy is their defense," says shelter manufacturer Walton McCarthy, of Radius Engineering in Terrell, Texas. Shelter owners don't want neighbors and strangers pounding on the entry hatch in an emergency, he explains.

I couldn't agree more! My family and I have discussed it and we all live miles apart, but decided that if/when the time comes, we will just get together in one of our homes, and go together if needs be. We are not afraid to go.
I am not saying that people who invest in these bunkers are wrong, if that's what works for them, then so be it.
But I don't want to hide and live in fear. No thanks
I will stock on food and things like that..not in a huge way, but just a bit. That's about as far as I will go. I'm trying to learn how to fast to control hunger if needed. Beneficial regardless I guess.
The cost of these bunkers are crazy, considering no-one knows if they will be safe in them or not anyway.

I have stocked up on everything "survival" wise including a gun with plenty of ammo.
We don't know what's around the corner with all this wierd stuff going on right now so there's nothing wrong with being prepared.
My kits includes walkie talkies, HF radio, CB radio, solar power for charging and powering devices, compass, gps, knives, tent, water cleaning tablets, Iodine Tablets (nuke stuff) and all in a couple of "go" bags.
Unless some biological weapons are released or I am engulfed in a 10MT fireball, I can get by and live off the land from the remote Scottish Highlands etc.

I agree, if the bomb drops I want to be at Ground Zero, who needs to deal with Radiation Sickness etc?
Maybe "rather than" depending on what you meant! Hehe!
