In last week’s info guide, we looked at the topic of outdoor caching. We gave you an overview of the process, and we also gave you an idea of what locations are suitable for caching in general. Lastly, we gave you a set of OPSEC rules to follow when going out to your caching location. In this week’s guide, we’ll show you what to cache, how to protect it, and how to conceal it. We’ll also show you how to map out where your cache is in a manner that won’t be easy for others to follow. Let’s get started.
WHAT TO CACHE
You are probably sick of hearing this from us, but here goes: only you can decide what is important to cache. We would rather educate you and give you the tools to survive rather than just giving you a list of things to store, some of which you probably don’t even own. Having said all of that, we can, however, give you a list of items that you might consider caching:
- Canned food
- Dehydrated food
- First aid equipment
- Gold and silver bullion
- Building materials such as nails, tarps, etc.
- Basic survival gear
Again, what you store is dependent upon what purpose your cache has. If your cache is designed to store some firearms away from potential government overreach, then you’ll be storing guns.
If your cache is designed to help you bug out, then you’ll be storing the supplies you will need while you’re on the move. We think you get the idea.
