CNN Money reports that doomsday prepper Patrick Geryl is convinced that the world will end in 2012. To live through the coming collapse, he has spent upwards of $150,000 building a bunker in rural South Africa. The only problem is that Geryl lives in Belgium, roughly 17,000 kilometers, or 10,500 miles, away from his shelter.
To put that distance in perspective, it’s the equivalent of driving from east-to-west across the entire United States, and then back again, and then back again… and then back again! That’s one hell of a road trip.
How does he plan to get to South Africa? Geryl says he is considering sailing there in an “unsinkable yacht”, but at a cost of more than $100,000 he doesn’t think he can afford to purchase one.
Though Patrick Geryl is the author of nine books on disaster survival, he still doesn’t have the good sense to put his doomsday shelter on the continent where he lives. His survival plan is so absurd that it’s almost laughable.
This is just another example of the folly and fantasy that too many so-called preppers mistake for actual planning. We wish Geryl and his family all the luck in the world, but the sad fact is they likely don’t stand a chance of surviving when the end actually comes. One thing is certain; they’re never going to get to South Africa.
What do you think the safest place will be in the coming zombie plague?
