Hell yes.

Best security anywhere, and if it comes to launching your gonna be fooked no matter what.

Wouldnt bother me. Missle fields are so spread out that unless you specifically went looking for a missle you probably wont find one and with much driving to finally find one.

Truthfully if you look around where you currently live, im willing to bet you will find that your living next to a target right now.

Yes. when the world comes to an end I want front-row seats.

The chances of getting hit by an ICBM aren't what they used to be. Sure, the possibility still exists, but if the nukes are flying anyway, maybe you'll get out cheap

how is the area? looks nice and secluded, and land is cheap, but housing looks hard to find and I assume most land has water issues>

Would? Pretty much have been for the last 35+ years. If the balloon ever went up KC & western-central Missouri would be a glowing crater. Front row seats to nuclear fun & games



Less of a worry now (so far). If any dirka dirka dickhead terrorists get ahold of a nuke they're more likely to use in in a well populated, symbolic area (NYC, DC, etc). If things go sideways with the ChiComs or a resurgent communist/nationalist Russia then why not be in a position to enjoy the lightshow up close. Unless you're in BFE any decent sized city will get some.

Tucson Arizona is a former missile farm. There were 16 Titan II ICBMs spread from NW of Tucson to Wilcox AZ. Plus Davis Monthan AFB doesnt help having the bone yard as a target as well.

No worries dude.
Link Posted: 6/5/2008 2:49:35 PM EST
Supposedly, there are a ton of those things in Wyoming. To hear some of the old guys talk you'd think there was one in the front yard of every house.
Link Posted: 6/5/2008 2:51:02 PM EST
I would. Yes, it's a target - but it ain't going to be the first thing hit.

Plus, you have thousands upon thousands of acres to get lost in if you need to get lost.

I live in the Wyoming/Nebraska/Colorado Missile fields about 16 days a month . The other days I have off and am at home with my family.

Why not? I used to work right on top of Cheyenne Mountain. Sure, the Rooskies might try to nuke their way through a half mile of granite to get to NORAD, but by God, they had to go through me to do it!

I would recommend no. We are at a low point right now in terms of ICBM exchanges, but that could change after 2012. China is presently building a new generation of ICBM's that can reach all of the US, and there is a growing danger of intended or accidental war in the coming decades as china is determined to encorperate Taiwan and control the pacific ocean.

Yes. I grew up in a small town in northern Ontario, North Bay. Since Diefenbaker sold us out on the Arrow, we got Bo-Mark missiles and they were only a few miles from my house.

I've already done it.

Could be, the map is from 1990. And who is to say the Russians or ChiComs have retargeted accordingly. Doesn't matter if the Whiteman AFB missiles are gone if the missiles aimed at them haven't been updated (lack of $$$$ or commie paranoia that the deactivation was a scam).

I'm glad to say that this sort of concern is so far down my list of worries that I'll naver come close to checking off the higher-priority concerns on the list.

I live 2.5 miles away from NSA's huge new facility here in SA. I'm pretty sure it's gonna be on somebody's target list. Probably more so than an ICBM field.

Done it, couple of times. In fact, I work in one now.

Lots of courteous people in nice blue trucks to help you on the roads. They bring lots of money and talent into the area. And, let's face it, if we do our jobs right, you never have to worry about nuclear war, because we are accomplishing our deterrent mission.

And, let's face it, if your biggest worry is being a target for an ICBM, your life is going pretty well.

BTW--you'll like Ruby's in Lewistown. Family-owned burger joint, awesome food, and their shakes are the best I've ever had. (Highly recommend the huckleberry )
