This is an interesting concept that can also be used to bury supplies (cache) in case of emergencies as well. Make sure all supplies are vacuum sealed by a food saver system or space bags before putting them in a waterproof barrel. Doubling your waterproof system will be worth it’s weight in gold if you ever need these supplies.

Make sure to use a nature based markers as well as a detailed map  so you find it again,lol.

Hope for the best but prepare for the worst.
Being prepared is not about living in fear, it is just about taking care of creating your own insurance.
As a cousin once said ” It is looking out for your own”
