GHB: Get Home Bucket – Hiding Survival Gear in Plain Sight

Keeping expensive survival gear in your vehicle carries the risk of theft leaving you with the chance of having to replace said gear or not having it when you need it the most. That leaves one with the choice of either going without the gear or taking this risk head on and trying to mitigate the risk itself by making the supplies less of a target. Bags, boxes, and tubs scream of stored items thus peaking a would be thief’s interest. Here we discuss utilizing a 5 gallon bucket in a way to “hide your supplies in plain sight” to decrease the risk of theft.

Some of the gear in this video:

    We all should have some sort of a plan and a 72 hour bag. Look at what happen to the people at Ft.McMurry.
    This lady did not have a plan or even a B.O.B. bag.

    Thanks! I used to live in SE Asia…the bucket would have been stolen! But I like the woodchip idea…perhaps get a cardboard disc and glue a layer to the disc as a false cover, rather than having to dig through?

    I like the idea of using the wood pellets as camoflage for the hidden items, I usually just carry my extra stuff in the bottom of my fishing bucket under my softside tackle bag but this deifinitely has given me ideas on new ways to conceal stuff… thank you

    Very well thought out!
    I have also considered those rectangular kitty litter buckets, but then realized they would look out of place in a vehicle. 5 gallon bucket is better.
    Excellent video by the way.

    Another great video and idea. I do have a suggestion. To help contain the pellets, could you use a large dog bowl or pie/cake pan? A bowl/ pan would be dual purpose. Could be used to contain a fire, used in cooking or boiling water if need be or anything else you could think of. Put all your gear below, put the bowl in and fill it up.

    An extra hank of bank line would be a great addition to the dry bag too. Great ideas Joe!

    Great concept video. Lot's of possibilities once you begin thinking about it. Also aligns with a gray man mindset.

    Really cool idea the bucket itself could be quite useful for many things.

    we don't do counties we do boroughs and considering the anchorage is in the borough where Kelly lives in that houses 40% of the state's population the Kenai Peninsula is not very densely populated the Homer area where I reside most of the time and work is probably less than 10,000 people
