bunker-survival

I can only imagine trying to survive in an underground bunker post-SHTF or for any reason, really. I know it sounds like a workable plan but it is, in my opinion, likely a horrible experience, to say the least. Granted, it’s probably better than death by nukes or hordes of zombies.

This past weekend I had the opportunity to play a few hours of paintball with some friends and family at a nearby facility for my son’s recent birthday.
