The Simple Stash base is a great start to make sure you can survive and store the things you need to.
As you interact with the world, you are going to find things of value and usefulness that you will want to store so they are available to you in the future when you need them. A stash base is a good way to start.
Simple to build, fairly cheap and quick to put up. If built in the right place it might even last a whole wipe. 🙂
