Missile base for sale on eBay!

Wednesday, September 26, 2007

Just read on Phil's blog about a missile base that's for sale in the US. It is the ideal home for an aspiring James Bond villain, or someone who is just keen to ensure they can surivive anything. Thought it sounded awesome - and at £750,000 it's a bargain. Here's a clip of the information:

A former US intercontinental ballistic missile base - with a network of underground tunnels and silos, but no nuclear warheads - is on sale on eBay for $1.5m (£750,000, 1.06m euros). Located in a remote corner of Washington state and still ringed by its original barbed-wire-topped fence, the 56-acre site is being marketed as a gorgeous" property and potential resort. Bari Hotchkiss bought the former base 10 years ago from owners who obtained the property in the 1970s, after the US government deemed obsolete the Titan missiles it was built to launch. "We used to use it as a summer camp, for our kids and their friends," he told news agency AFP. "The only limit is imagination. We've always wanted to see it turn into a summer camp or resort camp," he said.
