Food Savers let you store all sorts of things for further use in air tite, water tite packages.
Funny things you find buried in sewer pipes.

You found that in the pipe? Wish I could find something like that.

2 separate ideas there.

Those bags come in rolls,,,you can make them any length you wish...

Once you get it bagged you can store it in places like the pipe...

This Llama was a "gift" from a "client". It actually shoots well, but is expendable. If it fell in a well, it would not be a great loss. When vac-packed, they store forever with no rust or corrsion, this piece has been in this bag for about 7 years. But when dropped in a coffee can and set out of sight in an out building, or other strategic place, it will keep forever. It may accumulate dust and mud daubers, but it will always be servicable once you open the package.

The pipe comes in all different sizes, in 20 foot joints, but you can get shorter pieces at a plumbing shop. Cap the other end. One of these was just dug up in Oregon, where it had been hidden in the forest for 10 years, and the rifle inside was rust free. Ammo bags real nice, and stores in a safe easily. Think outside the box, dont put all your STUFF in the house.

YOUR turn to contribute now.

Straight genius idea

Wrap the outside of the pipe in a few layers of chicken wire. A determined rodent might chew through pvc pipe. They can't chew through wire.

PVC is a popular means of caching stuff because it works. The biggest problem most folks have is forgetting precisely where they cached their stuff. Make sure you have good landmarks that won't move and a means to locate your cache very, very accurately unless you enjoy digging.

Storing PVC pipes under docks is another common method.

The idea of not keeping all your stuff in one place is smart. If you have one or more bug-out locations, each location should be stocked. Don't think you're going to lug your provisions from home to your BOL.

get the 10-digit coordinate and hide it in a tattoo.
I.e. a barcode.

HA!,,,WELL if it was like everything else, then by the time I'd need it, then, chit, I'd forget how to read it.

The GPS satellites will all be switched to "military" at that time and the accuracy seriously maintained at the + or - 50-meters level it is supposed to be for civilian use today, at best. Try again.
