You’ve planned. You’ve made lists. You’ve spent hard-earned dollars on food and gear. But how do you keep it all safe and secure? How do you know it will be there when you need it – especially if you need it when you are not home?
Long term storage of supplies in a safe location protected from both accidental exposure and from those aggressively searching for your stash is important. For this reason, creating one or more caches (cache rhymes with stash) of items you believe you will need in a survival situation is a good plan for any serious survivalist.
There are several ways to cache emergency goods. Dave recommends an onsite stash, at least one off site cache, and hidden emergency caches.
