  1. This is a good place for you all to let us know what you like, don't like or would like to share with us about how we are doing or could do things better to make these forums a better experience for you. It's also a great place to let other people know what's going on in the survival and prepper world that we may not already know i.e. the Self Reliance Expo coming up in Denver this September 16-18 (We're planning on being there!) We will do all we can within the limits of our technical expertise, time and finances to provide a great experience and interface. Ultimately this is our community (which means your community) and depends on everyone's input and participation to make it a hub for information and sharing. Thanks to everyone for making Survival Cache a great place on the web to meet and discuss important issues related to survival!
  2. Thanks to sailorman2010 at Northwest Firearms forums for the following post I borrowed, I thought it would be a good starting place for this thread to get folks thoughts on this. The original link is here: "What would you stash in your survival cache?" "Hello. I hope everyone is recovering nicely from the long weekend and turkey day. I've been thinking about a buried survival cache for the last six months. I want to get feedback from people that have done it themselves-buried weapons, clothes, storage food, etc? I would also like to know what kind/type of containers people used-PVC pipe? Hard case? Barrels? Also, I know locating and environment is factor when burring a cache. A person would want to locate in a place where it wouldn't be easily found by others, but would be easy to find for them when returning to it. Nor, put it in a place where it would be sitting in the water table for six months of the year (unless you took pre-cautions for this) or about to be logged/developed. I've been working on a list as of late. It’s a work in progress and is in no way in its final stages of being complete. I would like to add this, most likely it would be made for two people (hence the two ALICE packs), but also I thought it could be nearby a camp/hide. Also, if just one person uses it (me), it could be a stash location where I come back as needed for supplies and exchange items. I thought of a few scenarios. One more thing, I know I didn’t add any weapons to the list. That is separate thing I am working on: to cache a rifle, pistol, ammo and supplies. Ideas for this would be nice too! Here’s my list: • One Hardig (hard-case/water proof) electronics box • Plastic storage bags/Mylar bags/food-saver bags-sealed • Oxygen absorbers/moisture absorbers? • Silicone for hard-case • First Aid kit • Two sets clothes (warm/cold) • 1 Large ALICE pack/1 medium • Coat or Rain gear • Boots (waterproof/thinsulate) • Socks/underwear • Gloves (leather & insulated pair) • Flash light/head lamp • Glow sticks • Small camp stove (one burner)/Swiss army volcano stove • Fuel/fuel tablets • FOOD o MRE’s o Freeze dried assortment o Canned meat? • Water Storage o Camel bak o Canteens o 2.5gal water bags o Purification tablets/filters • Sleeping bag w/all weather cover • Tarp (brown 6x8) • Para-cord • Gerber Hatchet/Saw/Shovel set (small) • Leatherman • Good knife (x2) • Hand & feet warmers • FIRE o Lighter o Matches o Flint o Steel wool o Tinder " end quote
  3. If you've read any good books, online articles or know of other resources that may be of interest to everyone else, post them here. Also if you have questions about good resources that may help point you in the right direction to get your bug-out-bag put together, learn about using a map and compass or any other subject matter related to survival, post it here. Also in the modern age there are a number of great videos and other multimedia that is very informative so let's not forget those resources as well. Thanks!
  4. What would be of interest to you? What would you like to see written about on the site? Let us know and give us some ammunition and hopefully someone will be able to help you address it and we can share what we find with everyone!
  5. If you have a great product you'd like us all to know about, store that would be a great resource to all the survivalists and preppers out there or any other type of service (survival school, etc.) be sure to let us know here. If you'd like to submit anything for us to review on this forum or the main site drop us an email at joel@survivalcache.com and we'll see what we can do about getting something written up. Also, if you are interested in advertising on the forums (we are still not advertising on the main site only on the forums) please let the moderator (me) know via an email through the SurvivalCache contact on these forums and we'll see about getting you set up with a banner and link. Thanks!
  6. We think this could be a good way for you folks to move gear around and help each other and yourselves. All we ask is that you: 1. Use common sense in how you go about doing this with each other. 2. Treat people you are working with as well as you yourself would like to be treated. We have newbies trying to get decent gear to start out with and more experienced folks looking to upgrade or update. If you're buying or trading, fulfill your end by doing it on time and if you're selling or trading make sure you explain properly the condition of the equipment etc. It's probably a good idea to stay away from trying to sell ammunition or weapons on this forum just so we don't make anyone feel too nervous about our good community here. There will probably be more to add to this as time goes on but those are the big things that come to mind right away. Oh yes one last thing and probably the most important. SurvivalCache is in no way responsible for the transactions that happen here. In other words the owners of this forum will not be able to reimburse you or be held liable for any damages or losses due to transactions that happen here. We hope that everyone has good experiences but understand that there are risks involved when you trade, buy or sell things with other parties. If we get too many bad experiences then this part of the forum will be removed or otherwise altered in an attempt to mitigate or eliminate that from happening. Enough rules! Have fun and good prepping! Thanks, The Survival Cache Team
  7. Hello to everyone! I am Kevin, retired paramedic/firefighter, and currently a massage therapist. I started prepping about a year ago. I like hearing what others are doing and how they do it. If SHTF I feel I have a lot to offer in the way of medical first aid and massage can be used to treat a lot of different conditions. Also I have been gardening for 40 years. I like to be outside and spend time in the woods or on the trail. I am looking forward to the different forums!
