Wisconsin family discovers fully-stocked fallout shelter in their back yard 50 years after it was installed at the height of the Cold War
For more than a decade after they moved into their house in Neenah, Wisconsin, the Zwick family knew they had a Cold War bunker in their backyard.

It was not until 2010 that anyone thought to open the heavy steel hatch, climb down the ladder and explore the 8-foot-by-10-foot chamber that the home's previous owner had built to protect his family from a nuclear attack.

Floating in five feet of water that had seemed into the bunker were sealed U.S. Army boxed packed with all of the supplies a family would need to survive two weeks underground.

'We assumed it was just this empty space,' homeowner Carol Hollar-Zwick told the Appleton Post-Crescent.

The boxes, old military ammunition crates, contained markings that suggested there might be explosives inside, so the family called the local branch of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

Agents opened the crates to find... Hawaiian Punch.

How do you knowingly have a fallout shelter in your back yard for that long and not explore it? That's the first thing I'd do.

Call the BATF?

What Morons...

Put yourself in the newspapers?

The last thing you ever want to do is reveal your secret bunker, and your stash.

The other aspect of this, is what is with all of the candy?

Sit around in a bunker and eat candy for a couple of weeks?

That was then, this is now...Anyone preparing for a disaster, or a meltdown these days is going to be tagged a Kook.

Before the Internet, we had BBS.
Before that Magazines and Newsletters.
Before that Seminars and books.

Yes, there were GLP'ers in 999 AD. They went underground.
