(TacticalNews.com) – When a major disaster strikes, many people plan to bug-out, evacuating with limited supplies to find greener pastures. Unfortunately, those limited supplies can run dry rather quickly, which is why so many preppers suggest burying survival caches along bug-out routes.
Survival is about being prepared. If you think you may need to bug out at some point, map out your route and bury survival caches along the way, especially if it’s a long trip. Be sure to mark your supplies both on your map and at their location.
Safe storage is essential, but that doesn’t always mean you have to bury supplies underground. You can always store items you think you will need inside a storage unit and access it when needed.
When many people think of survival caches, their thoughts immediately turn to firearms and ammunition. However, your survival supplies should include a variety of other items like food and water. In an extreme situation, you might need to ditch your bug-out bag and rely on your stored supplies and use your survival caches as a back-up or emergency supply source.
Even if you don’t plan on bugging out, having survival caches randomly buried is still a good idea. You never know if or when the supplies you have on hand will be compromised or even seized by the government. Since these caches are safely hidden away underground, they’re much harder for others to locate and steal.
