Subterranean Kansas Trailer Park Dwellers would be a great band name

The shelter will have enough space for more than 1,000 RVs and up to about 5,000 people. Members will be charged $1,000 for every lineal foot of their RV to purchase their space, plus $1,500 per person for food. That means a person who plans to park a 30-foot vehicle in the shelter with four people inside will pay $30,000 for the space and $6,000 for food.

So, $36 million.  Not a bad return on a $500,000 investment assuming of course that you can find 1000 people who want to ride out the end of the world out in Kansas.  Of course $500,000 is also one hell of a deal for 60 acres of enclosed area with a concrete/paved floor, especially since the lighting & climate control is already in place, plus you have all the land up top to mess around with too.

Of course you'll have a bad impression of Kansas if you only focus on the pimps and C.H.U.D.s.

I was thinking something on roller skates.  Maybe a demolition roller derby with the track doing figure 8s around the various columns.  Roller paintball perhaps.

It just seems a waste to have all that nice perfectly smooth floor available & climate controlled year round & not do something fun with it.

Maybe if the ventilation system is good enough, go carts.

Regardless, thanks to the government's willing to throw tons of money at most any project (can you imagine the concrete cost alone to pave 60 acres?  Not counting getting it there & pouring it...), that guy got one hell of a deal for half a million.  Almost makes it worth living in Kansas to be able to do something with it, almost.

I've often wondered why we never really built down as much as we built up with steel. Sure it comes with its own issues, but so does building up.

Atchison is an interesting place.  My Inlaws live right near it.  It's Broke busted poor today, but when it was a major railhead it was the home to a very high concentration of uber-wealthy robber baron types.  As a result, you can buy a Frank Llyod Wright-designed home there for the price of a one bedroom condo in DC  or a gorgeous old victorian 4 bedroom house for about $20k.  Of course the downaside it, it's in a town that's pretty much been gutted by Wal-mart and is really home now only  to folks who work at the broom factory nearby or deal meth
