What's interesting is that he planned to help other people during the apocalypse. I don't think I've ever heard that sentiment from a prepper before.

2wolves: Put a mega buck into something he couldn't make mortgage payments on.

That's shortsighted and very sad.


That was my thought, too. Then I read the rest of the article.

We're a pretty frugal family, but if I though my wife had only a year to live, you'd better believe I'd overextend myself to make that year good for her. And if that year turned into seven or eight, I'd do what she needed me to do, and worry about the consequences later.

Medical expenses and end-of-life care turn even preppers into paupers.

If his bunker and preparations were any good, he could just seal the door and live out his days with the bank trying to decide if it was worth the cost to dig him out.

Reading is fundamental.  He had plenty of money until his wife got sick.

2wolves: Jurodan: His wife died a few years ago,

His wife was 16 years older than he is.


She was also his 8th grade teacher. Your point? Seems like lots of speculation and very little reading comprehension in this thread. Nother you in particular, I suppose. Just saying.

Depends. His wife died a few years ago, maybe they needed her income to sustain it? Or maybe she managed finances and he got in over his head after she died?

Either way it's depressing and I wish him well. Losing the home you lived in with a loved one who is no longer with you is harsh...

I can here to be snarky.
But, he actually sounds like a big hearted guy. I wish him well.

He lived in Camden, NJ - I can understand the feeling that the end of the world is nigh & the need to build a bunker.

/or move out of Camden
