    You be the judge............

    Doomsday prepper in his 80s spent 30 years illegally building a secret two-mile system of bunkers and cabins filled with guns, grenades and food in Utah before they were found in a wildfire
    • A Utah man in his 80s spent more than 30 years building four cabins and underground bunkers outside of the ski town Brian Head
    • 'His only intent was to defend what he had there if the end of the world was to come,' Iron County Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Del Schlosser said
    • The illegal bunkers were only discovered after a wildfire burned two of the cabins this summer
    • The man lives in the town of Parowan about 20 minutes away and is cooperating with investigators
    • In addition to the homemade cabins and bunkers, Schlosser said the man also had stashed weapons and other items in barrels and trash cans in the woods
    • The man's hideouts and supplies were scattered across eight locations within about a 2-mile radius

    Nothing wrong with any of that.

    The problem is why is it such a problem to some folks that other folks prepare for the future?

    I was going to say that too while reading the initial post. I could see prepping being a fun hobby where maybe you just got really into it.

    The bunkers were illegally built on state and U.S. government-owned land.

    Same law you'd break if you were to build your new garage on your neighbors property.

    Notnin' wrong with what the guy did, the problem they are having with it is the location where he did it.
    ...and that aside, I bet he'd like to kick the @$$ of the idiot who started the fire. He had a good thing going until that happened.
