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.”

Range said he’s ready to defend his compound with an enormous cache of guns and strategically placed boulders to block any intruders from gaining access to it. He’s also stored about 50,000 pounds of food in the compound, which would last him over a decade.

“Well without any input of vegetables or protein, we think that we have enough that we can survive for about 15 years for 22 people.”

The compound is equipped with an off-the-grid heat and power source and an internal water supply with a 3800-gallon collection tank. Range also studied the prevailing winds and sunlight patterns to design the compound with optimal cooling in the summer and heating in the winter.

Range told KRLD that he plans to have a gathering on Dec. 21 with those that aided in the construction of the compound.  However, it’s not a doomsday gathering, and they are not a colt. It’s just a gathering and nothing more.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen, probably nothing,” said Range. “But if it does, we’re ready.”
