VivosIn July I had the opportunity to spend a few days at Vivos xPoint which is located in the southwestern corner of South Dakota  to demonstrate SUN OVEN cooking. While it is currently under development, Vivos xPoint  is an underground survival shelter community, nearly the size of Manhattan. This former Army Munitions Depot contains 575 hardened concrete military bunkers, which are now being transformed into the largest survival shelter community on Earth, with potential accommodations for 5,000 like-minded survivalists Each bunker is 2,200 square 

feet. They were originally built by the Army Corps of Engineers and used as a fortress to store bombs and munitions, from 1942 to 1967, when the base was retired.

During my stay, I met Robert Vicino, the founder and CEO of the global underground shelter network known as VIVOS and learned about his desire to bring the Vivos network to reality around the world. 35 years ago, Robert was inspired to build deep underground shelters for thousands of people to survive what he was told will be an upcoming extinction level event. In 2008 he launched Vivos, which now has a global network of underground shelters.

“The idea of having a ‘bug-out’ plan, including a life-assurance shelter solution, is prudent, biblical, and worthy of thought.” Robert said. “Resources are required to put the odds on your side to survive an extinction-level event, with the opportunity to emerge safely on the other side to be a part of the next phase of humanity: faith and family intact. Vivos’ Arks go into the earth, where the soil itself will protect you.”  Vivos

“Interest in real survival shelters has skyrocketed in the last 10 years,” he added. “From political to social upheavals; to an economic meltdown, a weaponized pandemic, an EMP or CME, WW3 from Russia, China, Iran, North Korea – you pick it!  We are witnessing major earth changes (not including global warming), from earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and superstorms.  Then there are threats from space, now very evident– with frequent asteroid near-misses, solar eruptions (flares), and even Nibiru (aka Planet X) which many believe is inbound. 

“Many governments around the world, including the U.S., have massive, deep underground ‘doomsday’ bunkers in strategic locations. Ticket holders include top public officials, military and industry elites. Don’t expect those blast doors to be opening for the rest of the world. If and when these extinction level events unfold, it’s good luck and God-speed for all the rest, although Russia claims bomb shelter protection for all its citizens in major population centers, and South Korea is working toward the same goal.”


“Rather than trying to profitize, fear-monger or handicap disasters, there is a better way,” stated Robert. “It’s not so much about what, when, or where these threats will occur.”  His interest is not rooted in fear or fixation on an impending “apocalypse,” but rather having a real life-assurance solution if and when things unfold.” 

To say the least, my time at Vivos xPoint was very enlightening and thought-provoking.
