FLORESVILLE, TX (CBSDFW.COM) – If the Mayans are correct, a South Texas man is ready to ride out the end of the world in a fortified steel compound.
It’s the ultimate doomsday defense. Paul Range and his wife Gloria have built a vast fortified compound out of 40-foot freight shipping containers on a sprawling 52-acre ranch in South Texas. Range says if civilization were to fall apart today, he’s ready.
“We do have some fairly major [planetary] alignments going on,” said Range on KRLD. “And those in the past have caused some solar flares, which also seem to have some relation to earthquakes. I don’t know that we’ll experience any here, but I am prepared for that.”
