Hey all. I'm going to start working on my first Buried Survival Cache, and I'm looking for some ideas on the contents. I know that each BOB is tended to personal needs, but as I'm at work :help:, I can't think of anything but the Basics. I'm planning on stopping at our local Prepper store on the way home, however, they close within minutes of me getting there. So it's gonna be a quick grab of what I don't have. I'd like to get this done today too, while the ground is nice and soft. Anyways, the landscape of the cache will be by our 5 acre lake on the property, about half mile from our homes. I will be using a 6gal bucket. The location will be close to some campsites that we already have established there. On the sites already are a standing grill, cut firewood, campfire ring, well w running water (elec. powered) and picnic tables. Number of persons to be using it wouldn't be important, as long as it's multi-functional as an add on, or as an only BOB. The purpose would be geared not only survival use, but recreational ease too. Something that we could use there, and then also if SHTF, it would be worth taking. I just feel like there's something missing in what I've got so far. Any ideas? My list so far includes: 1st Aid kit that will include ointments for poison ivy, bug bites, burn cream, and hook removal in skin. Tarp (hoping to get a 7x9 to roll up reasonably) Hammock Retractable fishing pole already spooled w line Extra spool of line Fishing Kit Roll of HD Foil (for cooking the fish over fire) 10+ pairs latex gloves Crank Flashlight/Radio Ammo (our most popular rounds would be .40, .22lr and 12ga) Few lightsticks Fire Making Kit Shower Kit w baby wipes Pocket Stove (preferably my butane powered one, w large canister of butane) Bug Spray 2-3 Knives (filet and other) Towel and washrag (if I can't fit the towel, then just the rags) Toilet paper $50 in small bills Large Trash Bags My own Heirloom Seeds, just in case INCH 100ft paracord Food wise. Planning on including a medium cookpot and a large military fork and spoon. Along with some of the dehydrated 1 pot meals that I've made. Throwing in some no-cook eats and treats like pkgd tuna and protein bars. Filling in what space is left with bottled water.
