WOW! That was a lot of info....
Some of which was a little too redundant but there were a lot of good points that I had not considered prior to reading it.

Keeping it simple would be the ideal way to go.
Outstanding post !

Cliff notes version:

THE TWELVE-POINT CACHE REPORT
1. Type of Cache
2. Method of Caching
3. Contents
4. Description of Containers
5. General Area
6. Immediate Area
7. Cache Location
8. Emplacement Details
9. Operational Data and Remarks
10. Dates of Emplacement and Duration of the Cache
11. Sketches and Diagrams
12. Radio Message for Recovery
Content
The most important parts of the cache report must include instructions for finding and
recovering the cache. it should also include any other information that will ease planning
the recover operation. Since the details will depend upon the situation and the particular
needs of each organization, the exact format of the report cannot be prescribed. The
Twelve-Point cache Report is intended merely to point out the minimum essential data.
Whatever format is used, the importance of attention to detail cannot be overemphasized. A
careless error or omission in the cache report may prevent recovery of the cache when it is
needed.

Good Caching Article

Let's all hope it never becomes necessary to use such things. But knowing how to preserve your tools for future use is as important a skill as knowing how to use them.

What do you think? A large waterproof container for under $20 shipped.
For all your cache needs. I've paid more for a lot less.

That's a dang good price, about half what I've seen 'em for elsewhere. Main thing to worry about are the gaskets. If they're shot then you'll need to make replacement gaskets. Only other trouble in paradise would be if you were in a swampy area, outside of the can could rust. Ditto for use as a burial vault anywhere, ground water can chew the heck out of a buried metal can no matter how good the gaskets.

Cool

If you are worried about your container staying water proof while burried short or long term - take it down to your local car dealer and have it undercoated just like you do your car. Problem solved for 50 yrs+. Probably cost less than $20.
