Is this a cache just for yourself or expecting to reach with the entire family?

Good list - thanks for typing that out. I'd throw in a hammock or two as well as a pair of Teva type sandals, especially if you operate any where near water. Ruger 10/22 TD is nice, but a folding stocked standard model is nearly as compact, especially the shorter Youth barrel model.

hope you packed a couple of sherpas to tote all that too, lol! ....all the phones i can find require you register them on a computer, which leaves a trail right back to you, if the net is even up when you need it. does anybody know of truly untrackable phones like they used to have?

TEOTWAWKI Blog / Alexander Wolf said...

Great work! Very impressive.

Aesop said...

FWIW, they have computer terminals available for use at the public library and FedEx/Kinkos, which solves the "trail right back to you" problem.

If you can't figure out how to get from there to a fucntional "burner" phone, you probably don't need one.

Aesop, Thanks.

TPALS, Kind of a muddling of the two.

Riverrider, Walmart. I set one up over the phone. Honestly I'm not too worried about the Gubmint spying on my pre paid phone. The phone would be more just to have a phone there as cell's sometimes work, especially using texts, when land lines do not.

Riverrider, Some of the ancillary stuff would get heavy but it is unlikely I would move it ALL at once. It's more there to have options.

Alexander Wolfe, Thanks,

Aesop, Yeah.

That's an impressive collection. Seems like you have your bases covered.

Theother Ryan said...

Harry, Thanks. Coming from you that means a lot.

riverrider said...
