Prepare: Vivos

Just found this company and their website. Vivos "plans" to build 20 shelters across the country and sell space for would be survivors. The shelters will help a core group of people survive nearly any calamity which could be thrown at them in an end of the world scenario the builders say.

Vivos is selling spaces in their deluxe shelters for the low cost of $50,000.00 for adults with discounts for children. Pets are free.

The shelters will include spacious private living quarters, gourmet food for one year, power, clean water, and fortified protection from all sorts of events.

The website is sharp. Lots of illustrations and graphics of shelter layout and design, videos of possible scenarios, and a map of possible shelter locations.

Here's a few problems...

1) None of the shelters have been built. According to the website, construction on the first one begins in 2010, but none are complete now.

2) The shelters have a maximum occupancy rating and no staff. What happens, if any of these shelters are completed, a catastrophic event occurs and Shelter Purchaser Bob shows up with his extended family, neighbors and co-workers? Who keeps the non-payers out?

3) The videos showing scenarios are all lifted from other sources. Not really a problem, but there is something "easy" about including them.

4) None of the principals behind Vivos are featured. Nor is there any information about building timelines or approvals for shelter construction.

5) Some of the photos of features are actually photos from missile silos which are available online. That smells funny to me.

I don't know. $50,000.00 per adult and there is so little information about the company. Seems fishy.

For that much money, about $100,000.00 for a family of four, one could buy a nice piece of rural land, drill a well, put up a functional home and stock it for multiple years. That might be a better option for some.
