When nuclear weapons were first invented, militaries all over the world had to adopt new tactics. When it became possible for a single bomb to destroy large amounts of military firepower, it became imperative for militaries to spread their forces over large areas, so that a single nuclear strike to destroy them all. 

The same tactic applies to individuals who are into preparedness. You don’t want one single event to destroy all of your preparations. Events like a hurricane, fire, riot, or government action may limit your access to (or destroy) certain supplies that you may have stockpiled. 

Now might be a good time to review how and where you store supplies. Maybe you can have backup storage locations where some of your stuff is hidden. Some of it can be on property you have access to. Maybe some can be cached in PVC and buried on public land that you can relocate in an emergency. If you DO decide to cache supplies on public land, make sure that they are either “ghost supplies” that have no serial number or finger prints on them, make sure that they are “off paper” supplies, or use some other method to ensure that the cache cannot be traced back to you in the event that someone else finds them.

I have noticed that those who talk about caching are usually int he West and used to lots of public land – which does not exist in much of the Midwest or Eastern parts of the country.

Personally, I think it is better (presuming you have acreage) to put caches on your property, well hidden, in a part of it that you can easily get to if the property is no longer yours…

Each person's situation is different, so what works for them will be different also. Don't follow a cookie cutter approach that someone else does; evaluate your situation and do what is best for you.
