Doomsday Prepper spends over $350,000 preparing for catastrophe

Preparing for Doomsday isn’t cheap, as many of you may have realized. The cost of extra food, generators, ammunition, gear, and all the other extras add up. The question is not how much will it cost, it’s how much you’re willing to spend.

Some spend more than others.

Robert Bast is a prepper who lives in Melbourne, Australia and runs the website Survival2012.com in his spare time. He has a free ebook you can download which gives the Facts About 2012. Bast told CNN Money:

 “What is certain is that in my lifetime, there is a strong likelihood that there will be a catastrophe of some kind — the sun destroying power grids, a flu pandemic that kills millions, an asteroid or meteor or comet striking earth or a magnetic pole shift,” said Bast.

Numerous sites have covered the possibilities of the world as we know it changing soon. Economics dictate that there will soon be a drastic change.

So, how has Bast spent so much money?

Bast has spent about $5,000 on stockpiles of food and water, and $11,000 on equipment including gas cookers, generators, batteries, water purifiers and solar power. He also purchased roughly an acre of land that’s a 75-minute drive from Melbourne and 1,500 feet above sea level (in order to stay high and dry in case of a flood or tsunami). He has built a house there, as well as a bunker to serve as his “safe spot” in the event of an emergency. Together, the land, buildings and bunker have cost him a total of about $330,000.

He also has a truck to transport himself, his wife, and his three children to the site.

This writer would like to emphasize that some may consider such preppers to be paranoid although that is not always the case. Robert Bast and his family will be able to survive almost any type of disaster. Can you say the same?
