Place your valuables in several layers of plastic baggies. Put the bags into a long PVC pipe, along with a silica gel pack to keep out mildew.
Seal the tube with the threaded end caps using epoxy, extreme pressure wheel bearing grease or another adhesive.
Dig a hole near your house to bury your tube. Dig the hole so it is at least a foot deep. Place a rock or other object over your buried object so you know where to find it in the future.
Tips and warnings
- It's a good idea to make stash tubes with PVC pipe since it won't corrode underground. If you decide to make your stash out of metal or buy a metal case, bury it near metal fence posts so it can't be found by metal detectors.
