Scenario: $1000 cache

Some recent talk of caching got me thinking along these lines, and I thought I'd throw a scenario out to the tribe for a fun thought exercise. Time to put your planning caps on. Here's the  scenario:

Whether through good fortune, a little bit of legwork or the help of a trusted friend, you have the opportunity to set up a small cache. For purposes of the scenario, assume that it is either stored with a trusted friend/family member or in a secure and relatively anonymous storage locker.

A few things to note about the cache site:
  • It's indoors and relatively climate controlled
  • You'll be able to lock up whatever you decide to cache; unauthorized access is a non-issue
  • Privacy concerns have all been addressed, and the site can be accessed as needed
  • The site is located a relatively convenient area for your and your plans
You have a total of $1000 in resources to devote to equipping the cache. Note that if you'll be caching old/used stuff, factor in the going the market rate for those items.

What do you include in your cache?

Updated to include: There's no specific disaster/crap hit the fan/zombies arising scenario in mind -- consider your current environment, concerns, and what would be of most use to you (or most interesting to plan out). Do you go full operational cache? A speedball/consumables cache to help you get where you need to go? Preposition some needed supplies or tools?
