The Washington Post: The best place to ride out a global societal collapse is New Zealand, study finds.

Is it any wonder that so many of the tech giants and the truly wealthy have holiday homes here? When Jacinda Ardern (our prime minister) announced that she was shutting the borders in 3 days time at the start of Covid, there was a swarm of private jets coming in from all over the world. With the exception of a 5 week lockdown, we've been life as usual here. 

Fyi, I have plenty of camp beds and a spare house that we used to live in while we built this one and now we just use it for storage, so rock on up when the apocalypse begins...........

By  the way, there are some end of the world bunkers near me. I don't know exactly where they are but I know a couple of tradies who've worked on  them. The guys that did our off grid electricity system also told me about a few of incredibly large private systems they've put in in our district. There are definitely people around here preparing for disaster.
