For a few thousand bucks you in your -- can be safe from any number of impending disasters.
Close only nestled a hundred feet below it Atchison Kansas.
And you can live in your shelter in your very -- RV how prep to year there is big money to remain in the bunker business joining me now.
Is Robert Segal he's founder and CEO -- -- group the owner of the fabulous -- thank you so much for coming on.
I -- -- honor I understand that this is a space that the army previously used they auctioned it off.
And what -- idea to make it into a doomsday shelter.
Well we've been in the shelter business for the last five years building -- shelters around the world.
And typically whenever government shelter -- facility comes up we try to buy it and then retrofitting converted into a modern day.
Blast shelter -- this one was all -- by the GSA and we jumped on what what is it like what what happens when I arrived there.
To turn key Forestar underground hotel slash.
Cruise ship that it's everything you can imagine it's not just a survival shelter it is truly a destination resort.
Where you and your family in your children would wanna go to many times a year perhaps in the middle the winner.
-- where -- seventy degrees inside this mountain.
-- year round so you will be very comfortable do very happy even if there's not a disaster by price face and I -- hang out.
Any time you want to -- you can't.
Permanently live there but.
Yeah that's open 24/7 forever and so you buy your space and you park your -- there whatever you're comfortable with being with -- -- 45 foot motor home for a million dollars.
And that's a onetime charge and you know it's -- it's your co owner of this.
Doesn't give me billion dollars placement ate it got it does -- -- million dollars and I read that it's so it's a thousand dollars per lineal foot.
The average RB is about thirty feet so that's 30000 dollars and there's a 15100 dollar charge.
Per person but I don't know what over what period of time how much how much would it cost me I have has -- two kids when -- gonna charge me.
Boy you're the perfect nuclear family down and it would cost you no extra charge for any of those family members.
The only thing your paying for is the RV itself.
By the lineal foot so if you had a thirty foot RV it's 30000 dollars and four children or for.
People for food -- that's one your food supply it's another 6000 so for 36000.
You've got yourself an investment and a life insurance policy -- people signed up so far how much how much money do you mean.
Well not enough.
We we've had 25000 applications over the last few years the -- the primary.
Problem has been the cost people can afford our other shelters where -- it's -- per person rate as much as 50000 dollars.
So just doesn't really like thousand how many people have -- it and on this new one birdie on we just announced that last week to our membership we've got a few 130 signed up.
So it's gonna happen very quickly will sell -- this -- accommodate about only 15100 RVs or about 5000 people.
Which I like to say is almost one -- -- million people on earth.
It it did this what makes -- nervous about this -- you're all the way in Kansas I'm in New York for example.
What kind of doomsday disaster would come my way that I would have enough time to get there.
Oh let's say a -- went off in LA or Washington or in the Middle East or let's say we -- about the -- the major economic meltdown.
Which could happen any day as you know or.
Let's save the earth was rumbling young.
Or an asteroid was on its way things that I would -- my -- It's time ago and you may go and it may not happen and so it's a false alarm just like a fireman goes to the yeah but at least you have somewhere to go vs the other seven billion people on the planet.
The will have no solution no -- ago.
And they'll be scrambling and you don't wanna be a part of that match you wanna go you -- -- have safe haven you'll be underground in what we call.
Effectively a fortress.
Okay Robert -- coming -- to show -- basic idea.
Sounds like it yet obvious since she -- good business that you sell out because I mean there's a lot to be afraid of these days I don't know people an insurance policy.
Thanks for coming I keep us posted.
