This is what Naekid wrote in a thread about bug out vehicle : I wish I had this kind of arrangement myself , but really the first thing that I thought of is : If I had some place to bug out to , then I would defintiley store a few things just in case. I don't think a friend with 10 acres will mind to keep a backpack or duffel bag for me somewhere in his barn or cellar, but it will dramatically enhance my preparedness should I come there one day. You might even come empty handed if the car was smashed or looted while you were on the way. Caching doesn't always mean digging and burying stuff underground. Hiding a few bags or packs with a friend is another form of caching that we ought to give some thought.
