    Gee, thanks and your sarcasm is appreciated. ;)

    Spider holes are a bit larger than ones shoulders. To be able to stand up and see to shoot at one's target; one must crouch when hiding. It doesn't sound too comfy to me. After a heavy rains, the occupant would enjoy what in WWI called trench foot.
    From a WWII Japanese or a 3rd world VC in Vietnam, none of them spent much time in a spider hole until their enemy was close.

    Might I inquire what do you plan to do with all the dirt from your excavations? You'll need to spread them out and no where near your tunnel. You'll need food and water.
    Rabbits are one source of meat. however, be sure it is well cooked as it carries ringworm and Lyme disease. Here, there are feral hogs and bears both of them are known to carry trichinosis.

    There hasn't been a case of trichinosis in decades in the US except for hunters who eat feral hogs. Your cooking fires will send cooking smells.

    Although there are better methods to deal with spider holes and tunnels; one is build a big fire in your tunnel. Any air holes will smoke same as a chimney. Plus a fire uses oxygen.

    You're so uninformed.

    nobody over here, except preppers, even has half a tank of fuel, they all drive on empty only filling up from empty when the fuel warning light comes on, filling stations will be empty within 24 hours and wont be resupplied.
    unless its a huge big bang event most people wont even know anything is wrong until its too late, probably when the power grid goes down.

    NOBODY knows everyone who lives within one nights hike of them. Get an aerial photo of your farm and check out how many people live within 20 miles of you. in all directions. Anyone can cover 100 miles in a night on a bicycle. dozens of people know about your spot and they've told 100's more about it., or they will, post shtf. There's over 50 million bicycles in the US. traffic jams wont stop the locals from getting to all of the farms. with normal vehicles, either. If you "think" everyone within half a gas tank's drive of your place is prepped and wont need to loot, you're insane. If you're too damned lazy to dig a few spider holes, then you aint got even 10% of what will be needed. Once you have the hole, you can be out of sight as you expand it horizontally into a tunnel.
