The National Geographic channel show “explores the lives of otherwise ordinary Americans who are preparing for the end of the world as we know it." As my knowledge of planning for Armageddon is limited I will avoid that subject, but what I do want to share with you, is that we’ll soon have our very own château du Upstate. Brent’s family has signed on for more episodes, and the castle is getting a roof.
Originally meant to prepare for Y2K, a bomb shelter was installed, a well dug and the cinderblock walls constructed. South-facing solar panels and a wind turbine provide some power, and there are plans for greenhouses just downslope. I sincerely hope the castle will never be used for its original purpose, however I can’t wait to see it finished.
