I like the idea and I have thought about it myself. However, I would want to combine the Airstream with a steel shipping container where the awning would be. think I would want to step outside from time to time. A little green grass a BBQ for the MRE's and I would be as happy as a ground hog in winter. It would make a great wine cellar or camping spot in the dark of winter.

Only those that think of the impossible can be prepared for the probable.

If you balance the running gear before you bury it, you won't have to worry about it again.

I am a full timer and if the country does go belly up i can run from town to town till i find the right one. All i need is a knife and a 45 and a country boy can survive!

Bunkerman - I'm pretty sure your home address isn't on Russia's, North Korea's or Al Qaida's list of "places to bomb in the 21st Century"... maybe consider just going camping like the rest of us?

Seems like a lot of work, and a waste of a good Airstream, for something that won't be "nuke proof" anyway.

I think I'd rather run away with Nomader, at least he'll have 4000lbs of water
and at least enough plans and tools to rebuild the city.....

Sounds like a fun project, at the very least.
How will you access the interior--a hatch from the top?
How will you eliminate waste water and human waste?
Are you planning on running propane underground?
How will it be powered?
How will you ventilate it during the 99.99% of the time that we are not at code orange? Mildew is going to be a real problem without some sort of forced ventilation.

Interesting concept, please keep us posted on your progress.

Glad I'm not the only person who was reminded of nomader.

I wouldn't bet on Nomader, unless he has a bigger knife and bigger 45.

This may sound crazy, But why not just tow the thing to someplace far, far away, where nobody in their right mind, or otherwise would ever bomb in the first place?

In addition to a being a bomb shelter, it will be very helpful when the sky falls.
