Sure it looks idyllic. A secluded town built deep in some of the most rugged mountains in the United States. It's private, it's secret, and it was meant to be our refuge.
We created the preserve to protect our families and our way of life. It was the contingency plan we put together to ensure we would survive whatever end-of-the-world catastrophe came our way; whether it be as crazy as something Hollywood might come up with, or the reality of a pandemic getting out of control. Regardless of the danger, we had a plan to survive, but we hadn't truly counted the cost of that survival.
