[Video] Planting A Wilderness Survival Cache

Buried Emergency Supplies

Burying a cache of supplies you might need in an emergency situation is a great survival strategy.

You could plant more than one cache along your bug out route, or in different locations if it’s an “urban cache”. However, never bury it too close to your actual bug out camp in case it’s now occupied by others outside your group.

What’s In The Cache

One of our favorite folks, Survival Lilly, uses a plastic, general purpose first aid container to store the supplies to be buried: no rust and the rubber seal makes it waterproof (for a few years).

  • tissues,

  • mirror to inspect facial injuries/signalling,

  • candle …

25 Survival Myths That Hurt More Than Help

Situational Skills Vs Survival Myths

There are situational skills that may save your life, if you know what you’re doing. There are also “common knowledge” reactions that may do more harm than good. The folks at list25 call them survival myths.

Grizzly Bear Myths
What are they? Well, survival is more than knowing what to do. Don’t be foolish and use common sense. The best way to survive a deadly scenario is to not get yourself into a deadly scenario. Survival is about prevention as well as a skill set.

This “myth list” include:

  • What to drink (think urine, cactus, alcohol)
  • What to do when impaled
  • How to use tourniquets
  • Moss and the North side
  • Doorways and earthquakes
  • Boiling water
  • Eating snow
  • “Here comes a bear!” (Well, is it black or a grizzly?)
