Our son was on a Search & Rescue call, combing an area of National Forest with his team, looking for a missing boy. He spotted something that looked out of place and went to investigate, and it was someone's cache of emergency food, ax, rain poncho, etc. Our son covered it back up and left it. Growing up in a prepper family he knew that the life of whoever put the cache there might depend on those supplies being there when he/she needs them. We've spent a lot of time speculating about the person who made the cache. Are they a good guy or a bad guy? Another prepper? Someone on the run? Someone who hikes or horsebacks in the area? How long has it been there? How many more are out there? This was near Glacier park, just a few weeks ago. It's a very remote area and there are people who hike or horseback through the area, sometimes 25 to 50 miles from a town or other people. So it's feasible it's one of those 'regulars'. The weather can turn nasty up there without warning. I'm glad he left the cache alone. If nothing else, he knows it's possible it'll still be there if HE needs it out in the wilderness some time. It's been food for thought here in our house, both about how we'd feel and act if we found a cache, and about what others would do if they found something we'd cached. PS: Boy was found, boy was fine.
