Home

If or when things get ugly and thieves come to your door, be they in uniform or not, nothing is safe if hidden inside the house.

Those living in community should not tell others where items are stored, or what has been stored.  Diverse storage locations may become extremely important.

 

Mylar Bury Bag, Zip Lock, Heavy Duty

Bury bag

Food Saver Bags

Cached food and other supplies, including those subject to rust or decay are much safer if buried outside the home, and not all buried in one location. One inexpensive way to do this is by first enclosing the buried asset in a Food Saver bag to provide a moisture barrier. Bags are available at Walmart  Bags can be formed up to 16 feet long. The end of the bag can be sealed with a common household clothes iron, or with a FoodSaver vacuum sealer.

5 Gallon Buckets

To help keep the sealed bags safe from varmints, the bags can be stored inside a 5 gallon bucket with a Gamma Seal Lid.

PVC Pipe

Use Foodsaver bags or Mylar bags to double seal items put inside PVC pipe.  Do not trust the end cap options that are not glued.

PVC 4″ pipe is another option.  Using PVC glue, close one end with a PVC cap fitting, or

 

 

use glue and a PVC Schedule 40 cap, or

use a reusable test plug fitting at the opposite end for easy access.  To prevent rust, generously coat the metal hardware with grease, or replace with hardware made of stainless steel.

 

 

Dedicated Septic Tank

A dedicated plastic or concrete septic tank can be installed to store large quantities of food and function as a storm shelter.  A buried septic tank is easily concealed from casual view.  If the tank is installed in sloping terrain, add a drain pipe at the bottom of the tank in case there is incursion of ground water.
