A California entrepreneur says that the future of the human race could depend on a doomsday shelter RV park that his company is building in Kansas.
Vivos founder and CEO Robert Vicino doesn't know if the apocalypse will come by way of nuclear war, meteorites or some other catastrophe but he's pretty sure the Vivos Survival Shelter and Resort he's building in 100-year-old man-made caves near Atchison will be the best place to survive.
"Perhaps an asteroid, perhaps something from space or maybe it's just the heating up of terrorism or nuclear event somewhere in the world," Vicino told KSHB. "We're becoming a modern day fortress or a citadel with ample security, fully underground storage and all the other amenities that are needed to survive."
The resort will include a bowling alley, a swimming pool with water slide, underground golf, archery, paintball, tennis and skateboard park and more.
But it all comes at a price. Customers will have to pay $1,000 per linear foot for their vehicle, plus $1,500 per person to cover one year worth of supplies. So a family of two adults and four children with a 27-foot RV would have to pay around $33,000.
In all, the resort will be able to hold around 1,000 RVs and 5,000 people. Construction is scheduled to begin in late August.
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in Kansas must remain on the November ballot even though he wants to withdraw against incumbent Republican Sen. Pat Roberts.
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach said Thursday Democrat Chad Taylor did not comply with state law. He says Taylor didn't formally declare that he would be unable to serve if elected.
Taylor Wednesday withdrew from the race without explanation, raising questions about whether he quit to give independent candidate Greg Orman a better shot at defeating three-term conservative Roberts, who has struggled to solidify re-election in a predominantly Republican state." (KWCH video)
