Can you get to your storage space?

Survival Cache

Getting to your survival cache and protecting it is crucial.

 

In a disaster, there will be many people who need the things you have stored for your family. If you are able to stay in your home, make sure that you get your cache of food, water and other items to a place in your space that you can defend. If this means that you have to sleep near your cache, you must be ready to do this!

You can save yourself a lot of trouble if you store your items in an area where you are able to lay out a sleeping bag. What this means is that you won’t have to drag all of your stored items to another place. This will save a lot of time and energy.

You might need this energy later on when you are concentrating on other issues related to your survival. You should plan ahead so that you don’t need it with regards to the cache you have so carefully put together for this time.

 

If you were aware enough to put all of your items is a couple of different places, it is hopeful that you have complete caches in each space. This means toiletries, foods, water – all of the things you need to have on hand should be in all places so that if you can get to only one and one cache is lost – you are able to make it through.


 

 

As you store your survival supplies, think as if each stash is the only one that you can get to. If you can get to two or three caches, you are WAY ahead of the game. So prepare as if you will only have one.

 

This will put you in the proper mindset for survival!

      It becomes critical when people haven’t prepared. So, there is always the chance of mob mentality. Being aware of that can help you be ready.

    My husband and I have a great cache, but sometimes we forget to check the dates and cycle through stuff, this was a good reminder.

      It is important to rotate your goods. watch cans for signs of swelling, etc. Depending on where you store your stuff, the temps can affect the shelf-life of the goods.

    If you re burying your cache on a remote land location be very careful if you re solely relying on markers that can be moved or cut down. Trees and rocks seem like good position markers but will that rock or tree still be there in a decade or two?
