About Me


Why my site is different


Because no one can take what they cannot find


Hello, my name is Dave and I’ve been burying stuff in the dirt for more than 30 years. In order to prevent novels, cassette tapes and knives from being confiscated by my parents, I started burying them in the woods of western Pennsylvania when I was about 10 years old. Since then, I’ve buried my stuff in the forests of South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana; and in the city parks of Washington D.C. and Charlotte, North Carolina. I’ve never used a safety deposit box and over the years I’ve also helped other people bury their valuables in New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, Georgia and Missouri. I’m proud to say that after 30 years of digging in 11 states, nothing to my knowledge, not one single item that I’ve ever cached underground has ever been lost.

Although I can boast that I’ve never had a buried item lost or stolen, I cannot say that I’ve never had anything damaged. I must admit that I’ve made mistakes and learned from them. On two different occasions, I’ve been rushed or careless only to later return to my cache and find rusted knives or waterlogged books. Diligence and patience must be observed and I’ll only be showing you my proven tried-and-true methods. I’ve never used Pelican cases and I’ve set up this website as a “Poor Man’s Guide,” offering the cheapest methods first.


Pelican is the only flashlight that I will use; they make excellent products and if you can afford to buy their waterproof storage cases with the current state of the economy, then kudos. But you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on a box when you can spend hundreds of dollars on stuff to put in the box. On this website, I will show you how to use Tupperware containers, Zip-Loc baggies and a few bricks to easily accomplish the same task. I will also explain how to use empty US military-issue ammo cans to shield your buried electronics from EMP and how to use sewer pipe to safety bury just about anything that will fit inside it.


None of the content of my website was outsourced and unless otherwise noted, I’ve personally written every word … and I plan on adding more, a lot more. One doesn’t see very many knowledgeable websites dedicated to burying items underground and over the years, I have only seen a few sites myself. Some of these websites have good advice and some do not. If you are an experienced survivalist, then you may not learn very much from my blog or my site as I’ve geared them toward beginners. If you are a beginner, then you should know that the reason my website is different is simply because I am here. I am not normally a boastful person but I have been stashing shit underground for a long time … and I am very good at it.


Please be aware that I will not knowingly help any person break the law or commit any crime. You should also know that I am new to prepping, I don’t even own a gun. I prefer archery or crossbow hunting and aside from a few extra AA batteries, I don’t hoard much of anything at all. Although I am in the process of making the transition to survival prepper, my current buried cache consists only of a few personal items and a single HDD containing my laptop’s backup files; which I will use as a step-by-step guide on my website.
