You can never predict the end of the world. But you can always be prepared. Whether it's a zombie apocalypse, nuclear holocaust, or the Cascadia Quake - preppers take no scenario lightly.

If you had to live in a post-apocalyptic Tri-Cities, these are the places you'd want to be.

    Winco

    Richland

    Winco is a huge warehouse-type building made of concrete and steel. It's also only got one entrance. This makes it a great place to set up a base or shelter. PLUS all of the non-perishables and bulk foods will keep people fed during the end of the world.

    The Bunker

    Richland

    One of the most popular military surplus stores in the Tri-Cities, the Bunker would make a great HQ for a Anti-Zombie Tactical Squad. With guns, ammo, camping gear, military gear, etc; the Bunker is where you'll want to be if you're on the defensive AND offensive.

    Lookout Summit

    Benton County

    At 3,629 ft, Lookout Summit is the highest peak in Benton County. From way up there, you'll see everything headed your way from miles away.

    Clover Island

    Columbia River

    Now here's a place to build a fort. It's already got a natural moat. It's pretty hard to get to it without N Clover Island Dr. If you had to, it could easily be cut off and made remote for Martian Defense Teams.

    Bateman Island

    Columbia River

    If you really need to be off the grid, Bateman Island is an excellent choice. You need a boat to access it. It's got great fishing spots. Just be smart with your campfires.
