We went on shoot back in January with Jason, who is working on a new project which focuses on sustainability. This man, Matthew Fulkerson, is taking an abandoned nuclear missile silo and rebuilding it into a home and environment that has everything that might be needed to survive if our governmental system were to collapse. He will be turning that silo into a training facility for others to come and learn self survival techniques.
This is what the missile base looks like from the outside today. There are two watch towers.
Walking in to the facility
On one side next to the bay, there is a shop. In recent years, this area has been used to build Ultralight Aircrafts.
What it looked like at the time. It was up and running by 1959 and shut down by 1965. Thirty million was used on the facility at the time. Nowadays that would be over $100 million. It was purchased for $40,000.

Matthew Fulkerson explains the story of meeting and marrying his wife at the facility. Matthew is working on converting his own silo and establishing it as a training center for others to learn survival techniques. He is the subject of Jason’s documentary.
