'Kill or be killed': Doomsday prepper reveals spending $45K on supplies in anticipation of nuclear disaster
MISSOURI, US: After going public with her intention to prepare for nuclear calamity in the midst of the Russia-Ukraine war and the cost of living crisis, 38-year-old Missouri housewife Rowan MacKenzie has built a bunker and spent an extra $27,000. As Putin's battle with Ukraine drags on and other nations are stretched as a result, the "doomsday prepper" has taken further precautions to guarantee the safety of her family.
MacKenzie said she has spent over $30,000 on emergency supplies over the past 11 years, a number that has increased in response to the escalation of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. After making news 11 years ago for creating a bunker in case of an emergency, Rowan has stated that she has 'added a lot more to the bunker' since that time. In total, she has spent $20,000 on food, supplies for self-sufficiency, and armament; but, in light of her most recent acquisitions, she now estimates that the entire sum is closer to $45,000.
"I’m preparing, as a whole, for war, inflation, nuclear disaster and all out chaos," Rowan said as reported by News Cinema. "The price of everything here has gone up so much – but I need to prepare myself and my family for a disaster situation." She added, "I’ve added a lot more food to the bunker and a new water filtration system, as well as some chickens and a turkey." Rowan says her inventory is so immaculate that it may survive for up to 25 years. She said, "We’ve also set up a large greenhouse, so we can start reproduction of more homegrown food." She continued, "It’s been necessary for us to add more ammo and weapons to the secret bunker as well."

Rowan asserts that the majority of her inventory will remain usable for up to 25 years and that she has a "flawless" rotation mechanism in place to eliminate any possibility of waste. But what was the most important piece of guidance she gave? Gather as much weaponry as you can. She said, "The number one must for any bunker is defense. I would highly recommend having a few guns and knives in your bunker at all times, along with ample amounts of ammunition." She added, "You need to protect yourself, especially in a ‘dog-eat-dog’ situation. It’s kill or be killed and you need the best possible chance of survival."
She cautions that everyone should have the most fundamental preparation goods on hands, such as firearms, things for first aid, and long-lasting food, such as rice and beans. "Also, if meat becomes scarce, guns are good for hunting."
