    LONG TERM STORAGE IDEAS PLEASE

    ok kids, I need your best ideas, proven or not

    I want to know how best to store things underground
    Iím thinking like two feet underground
    I want to preserve pictures and valuable papers
    My best idea so far is pvc pipe glued on both ends

    I am also considering camouflaged in trees

    I've used the PVC... buried..Schedule 80, not the cheap crap. A 4-6" tube with a cap glued on one end and a cleanout on the other..Silicone on the threads before tightening cleanout. After a 2 year test contents inside were still in decent condition, but had drawn moisture through the (sweating?)..not too bad though.

    The PVC is one the prepper favorites. PVC can do some nasty stuff to paper though as can the VOC from some of the glues. Using low VOC glue and sealing the papers/pictures in acid free bags can help.

    You can keep the moisture down with desiccate. If you have a welder flooding the pipe with argon before capping can help a lot.

    Desiccate as mentioned , a must. For aditional potential drying at lower cost or lack of large disiccate , an opened bag of rice can be added.

    Acid in paper must be considered too to not corrupt pictures. Pictures should be isolated anyways after a copy of them is put on a flash drive,to insure they exist should the originals suffer.

    A 30-50 gallon seal top barrel below frost line is a good start.
    5 gallon pails with gamma seal lids with tape sealing the lids can go in the larger barrel.

    With caution , sealed durable containers can be immersed in buried oil too.

    Frozen ground , or eye traffic ,or sky eyes can make a cache site tough to access if you need to make a deposit or recovery urgently.

    Trees are vulnerable to a host of interference's. From natural ,to human.
