For sale in Utah: “die-hard survivalist bunker”

Kayenta Bunker for sale

There’s no price listed on the “Kayenta Bunker” for sale in Utah, but the property taxes are just $430 a year.


“There are hidden caves which I will show to the new owner. These caves have not likely seen any humans besides myself and my boys.”

“Plenty of hunting; there are deer, rabbit, and quail on our property every day.”

“Step outside the front door and you can fire a pistol, throw knives, strip naked, whatever!”

“you can fire a pistol, throw knives, strip naked”

I’ve always *wanted* to do all three, simultaneously… but do I *have* to live in Utah?

Also, no mention of what the giant tower is. Anyone know? And is it on the roof or is it behind the above-ground “bunker?”

    That tower and those contraptions look like plain old microwave antennas. My guess it that building used to be just a telecom relay station, housing nothing more than a backup generator and a few racks of receivers and transmitting amplifiers to forward telephone calls to the next relay. The building (plus equipment) probably got obsoleted when the long distance operator put down fiber optics, though the interior probably got stripped. I guess you can buy those places for a song, then turn it into your personal bunker…

    It’s an old AT&T microwave relay tower. The bidders and owner might be annoyed to know that this isn’t a ‘bunker’, it’s one of the least protected types of microwave site that AT&T had. The antennas don’t have the blast protection kit on them, so it wasn’t designed to take even a 2 PSI blast wave. Love those old sites, though!

    It’s likely an old AT&T microwave relay station. A lot of them have been up for sale recently. Check out http://www.long-lines.net for a lot of cool history on these classic telco communication networks. These sites are hardened for post-war communications, and protected against EMPs.

    How about a cheesy real estate joke? If you ever think that no cares if you are alive or dead then just try missing a few house payments.

    This is the former Santa Clara AT&T Long-Lines radio-relay station on the microwave route between Salt Lake City Junction and Turquoise Mt near Baker California…

    The site may be reached by taking the I-15 Littlefield Arizona exit and heading north on Hwy 91…

    The tower has been removed so you’ll have to look sharp to see the bldg on the right-side of the road…
