Potential Underground Bunker Issues!

I've seen most of the TV show episodes of "Doomsday Bunkers". Prepping is a great idea...I do it myself.  There are a few "Details", however, that shows like this fail to address.  One episode concentrated on the shelter door standing up to vandalism, neighbors, etc. attempting entry! Probably will keep them out...until they cover your air intake or use smoke or tear gas on same, to flush you out!

Can't remember any episode that featured an "Escape Tunnel"!  For my peace of mind this needs to go 50 to 100 yards away from the shelter and come up in a screened area! Various scenarios make this critical: Fire, fallen trees, debris block main door, above Vandals, etc. Several shelter builders listed on the sidebar feature escape tunnels in the larger, high-end units.

Building or buying a Bunker, some things to consider! Comments welcome!

Easily remove radiation from any water source.

Our University of Alabama patented solar desalination product uses no electricity, has no filters to replace, can be taken anywhere and extracts pure water from any contaminated water source. It removes radiation, fluoride, salt, pesticides, bacteria, dirt and other contaminants from any water. It aids people to be prepared for disasters.

Made tough in the U.S.A.

I have had all the same thoughts. I have to have a secondary escape route i.e. tunnel and the air vents are a HUGE issue. At the very least, the air vents need to be hidden and even more so than them a 100 yards away or more and use fans to help move the air. At least that way, the vents are not directly over your bunker.....marking its very location.
