    The control rooms (and personnel quarters) I explored were placed at a slightly higher elevation than the bottom of the missile silos themselves, but the damp nature of a non-conditioned environment (conditioning stopped when they abandoned the silos) was evident everywhere.

    Silos used to be easy to spot here. Electrical lines going to the middle of a bare prairie land and stopping were the obvious sign of a silo complex. They worked on a combination of commercial power, generator and battery bank. The battery banks were huge but were the power of last resort. Similarly the diesel generators were large with multi-thousand gallon tanks to feed them.

    With decommissioning, much of the silos has been salvaged so that there is little left other than the underground rooms and silos, themselves.
    I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."

    If I hit the lottery I would definitely buy one and recondition it into a personal home and massive car storage space. Put in a nice elevator for cars, indoor shooting range, maybe a bowling alley. LOL. It would definitely be expensive to convert and then maintain, but I think it would be a fun and interesting way to live. Plus it will make it harder for anything to get you when the Zombie Apocalypse happens. LOL.
