    I live less than 2 miles from a major Target. Don't think a Fall Out shelter will do me much good.
    And I don't think one exists near me anyway.

    Remember, big brother thinks there is too many of us by about 150 million, what does that tell you?

    You, me, and our families, BLM, gang bangers, places like Dirtroit, Philly and Baltimore need to be reduced to zero population.

    Do not lose sight of the population count on this planet. The elite have made no secret of their desire to reduce this count.

    I haven’t seen a sign in quite sometime, I think that they were taken down because they think that they are no longer needed or the designated shelter would be pretty useless. The old shelters, in lower hallways in a school for example, how would one maintain it with a group of people without proper supplies, in the 60s and 70s there were many shelters designated with the infamous yellow signs, no supplies for extended use, meaning pretty useless.....

    A map of empty no longer maintained locations ?

    The maintained locations are not going to let someone not on the list in. So I do not think the list / map is any good. Many were located in the basement of public buildings and although they were better than nothing were not very good protection .

    If you want a location yo got to build/make it yourself.

    Some areas of the country have underground storage areas old mines or just areas of limestone that they made bigger so they could use them as warehouses/storage. If a person had money you could rent space and park /set a connex or semi tractor trailer with supplies in one of those storage areas.

    One near Lewisburg Ohio of of I- 70 trucks come in an out but you never see trucks or any buildings on the property underground all kinds of roads, storage areas and plenty of parking for semi tractor trailers. If You had supplies in one of those limestone caves and could get into it fast enough you could easily wait out a short duration small nuclear exchange.

    Doubt the US ever gets a system to shelter its population from a nuclear event. We seem to struggle with shelters for events like hurricanes and tornadoes.

    In 1955 the Jr. high school I went to had plenty of CD supplies.

    There was an underground area excavated for an Olympic size swimming pool and running track, it was never finished.

    The concrete and steel roof acted as planned, a parking lot.

    The construction had ceased from the onset of the depression era, never was restarted..

    In that space were hundreds of pallets of stuff, all with the CD logo on them.

    There were what I would guess at to be 35 gallon drums of water also stored in large numbers.

    Today, as many of us older folks have seen, our government has turned in a self serving gaggle of leeches.

    Mind you there always was a certain amount of them, today it is the majority.

    As I have said before, they only care about their own survival, their actions prove it.

    I have been in a few of the bunkers, they are not by any means built for us chattel.

    Maybe a false map with shelters marked in the big cities to draw the sheep away from my area would be a good thing.
