Having a survival cache or even dozens around your property or bug out location could mean the difference between death or survival.
Sounds a little harsh but it’s true. What would you do if you had to bug out to your bug out location with no supplies? Your bugout location could be robbed or taken advantage of long before you arrive.
The police won’t be around to retrieve the stolen items and you can bet your last dollar that you won’t be able to purchase any other food or survival items if SHTF. It will be up to you to hide the items you need and store others you need, as well.
What to Cache?
What types of things do you store in a survival cache? Well, you use the survival cache to both have resources in a place you need them and free up space for other resources in our home. Cache things like:
- First Aid
All of these items make great items for a survival cache. You can also cache collections of items.
Where to Cache?
When burying a survival cache there are many things to consider.
You could bury a cache nearby or far away. These could be caches that are buried in the ground and you can even store caches in larger trees if you use PVC pile. When spraypainted they are impossible to pick out if you arent looking for them.
Caches on your bugout route are another very important consideration. These will make your bugout a much better experience. You could cache foods or water or even ammo in these survival caches on the way to the bugout.
At your bugout location, you could also have a number of caches buried and this would be a great way to store resources without filling your bugout location up and making it look obvious.
