A Long-Term Survival Guide – SKS Cache Retrieval:
Back in the 80s, when assault weapons bans were being proposed, I decided to acquire a supply of SKS rifles andammo, for future use. (Back then you could buy them for $69 each.) I cached most of them using a variety of methods, in a number of strategic locations, which was a lot of fun. Recently I decided to dig up one of them, tocheck the condition of the cache. This particular cache was one rifle, sealed in a surplus 155 mm storage tube.These 155 mm tubes weigh 16 pounds, and are approx 37 inches long, with a 5 inch diameter, just big enough tostore a field-stripped SKS inside. There is also a shorter tube, about 27 inches long, but it is too short for this job.This publication shows both storage tubes, and the howitzer rounds that were stored inside them.
 The storage tube has an end plug, with three locking lugs. A T-shaped handle tightens or loosens them.There is a rubber seal on the inside of the plug, but I prefer to add an extra layer of silicone caulking, asan extra precaution against fluid invasion. I also like to paint my containers with a black rust-resistantpaint. I will sometimes also paint the inside of the container, if the condition is less than pristine.Whenever I have the materials available, I like to wrap my containers in several layers of plastic sheeting.I cover the wrapped cache container with a plastic tarp, before filling in the hole, as yet another water barrier.So anyway, I travelled to my cache site, located and dug up the container, and brought it back for inspection.
 I prefer to place my survival caches close to natural landmarks, to make future retrieval easier.Since I live in an area with lots of rainfall, I take extra steps to protect my caches from water damage.
