I was thinking I would be willing to pay several hundred, but definitely not several thousand! It sounds like you've got a fantastic airport. Of course, I don't need it that perfect.
Hey Porterjet, if I buy a couple of picks and shovels, did you want to come out for a "vacation"?

The country didn't 'crater' when we were all taught to hide under our desks in school to prepare for a Cold War nuke attack, or when we thought the computers would all go nuts on Y2K, or when everyone thought AIDS would spread out and kill 90% of everybody, or the killer bees would sting us to death, or the Euro dollar crashing the world economy, or the Arabs kicking up oil to $100 a barrel, wild Tsunamis, California earthquakes, an instant Ice Age, the oceans overflowing, or any one of a hundred other panic-mongering concerns.
We have plenty of real problems that I won't minimize.
As for the end of the world scenario, however... truth be known, if the country really craters and we all have to learn Chinese to beg for a bowl of rice, the Chinese-Saudi-Hispanic-Pelosi-Obama-Communist-Marxist-Nazi-Mafia-Illegal Immigrant-NWO-Area 51 Alien government will come in and take your airstrip whether it is in Lovelock, Black Rock, Little Rock or Little Big Horn.
So if someone is truly concerned about that scenario, make a section of the road 2 or three times wider, with wavy edges and irregular shape as seen from above, and put some big rocks between the "regular" part of the road that people drive on and the widened section you can land on with your survival rations. Better bury the hangar-home-bunker underground while you're at it
