Ready made large cache?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to keep some stuff stashed at my BOL,and have been using 5gal buckets,which I fill almost full,then put a chunk of dry ice in,letting it melt to almost gone,then putting the top on and sealing it with tape(in effect a primative nitro-pac). Anyway,an inlaw recently had a large chest freezer go out, and I was thinking of using it sort of the same way. It looks to me like it should work pretty well-it's fairly sturdy,with a fiberglass liner,it seals with a rubber gasket,and it even locks. I measured, and it will easily hold 10 5gal buckets(Ifigure 6months pluss worth of food for 2) and still have room left over for some other stuff I want to keep there. It's real dry here,so do I need to paint it with asphalt emmission or anything like that before I put it in a hole with a few inches of dirt over it( I wanna be able to get into it fairly easy to get out tools etc.) Any input besides the usual about caches being unsecured storage?-once again,where I'm doing this is remote enough and hidden enough that the chances of anyone finding it are realyrealyrealy slim.

we have a storage container for cache made out of a fiberglass septic tank. totally waterprof. so far! Now, here we have a water table issue. So we buried it and landscaped around it. it blends in to our landscaping so well even my wife asks: "where is this cache again??" The entry point is the weak spot for us. It has a cover but it stiill is the entry point for evryone and moisture as well and the occasional critter. We got ours new. LOL I found a used one for free but I said no thanks. Man can you imagine trying to clean one out for repurposeing? LOL we have the 1500 gallon for storage btw.

Been seeing the commercials for flex seal all the time, and it popped into my head when I read this...

 

We tried to repair an old portable water tank with flex seal and it didn't work for spit.For all their hype and commercials, I was under impressed by the stuff! by the way,the freezer is working out real good-just had 3 days of rain,and stuff inside stayed nice and dry.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
