Great additions guys! I have things broken down further if anyone is interested in the specifics for the bugout vehicle emergency gear, first aid
supplies, or the bugout bag itself. Just let me know. I don't want to waste thread space if it would be redundant to your own preps.
Plucky, they probably will try to confiscate the abovesaid items, but that's the purpose of caches. You should never have all your preps out in plain
view for all the World to see. Keep the basics onhand and ready for use, and the rest securely stored and/or cached for when they're actually needed.
There's an old saying about keeping all your eggs in one basket that seems to apply most expressedly here.
The checklists are to let you know what items you actually have on hand, and which ones you still require. They also help you remember to rotate your
food and water stocks, and maintain your weapons.
Guns that are not oiled and cleaned regularly tend to rust or get fouled up. Why spend all that money and not properly maintain your gear?
The food items are ocassionally borrowed for an emergency meal like when unexpected guest show up, and must be replaced. I need reminders because my
memory is not as good as it once was, and the checklists helps me stay focused and on task.
