Last week , after a snow storm, wife hid the spare key/remote for my CRV under the newly fallen snow when it fell out of her coat pocket. However , she is sure that she'll find it ; it's only under at least a foot of snow within a two block area of our house.

Best use for silicone caulk I know of.
Smear some black silicone somewhere on the underside of your vehicle, preferably on something black. If you cannot find something black under your vehicle you should not be allowed to have the keys for it. Press a spare key into the silicone. Smear some more silicone over the key and don't be neat about it. Throw a handful or two of dirt onto the wet silicone. Now it looks like a bit of dried mud. Your spare key will wait patiently there for you and will not have a bit of rust or corrosion even years later. Use a pocket knife, stick, rock, or something to gouge the key loose when needed.

And you wondered how you were going to use up some of that worthless silicone.

As for the truck, this dang dog can lock or unlock it by stepping on the button on the door, so yes, I keep a second key outside the truck. She locked me out at a gas station one time...lucky the window was down enough to reach in !
I too like the retractable "janitors keyholder"
My dachshunds did this with my Ford Ranger in our popup days, at night in the rain. My wife had her keys, in her purse, in the truck. The driver's window was open just a crack, could not get a hand in. It took a long stick and a hundred tries to hit the unlock button on the passenger armrest while dodging two dogs who wanted out. After that, she and I made sure window was open or the keys wrre in hand. A spare key without the security chip would open the lock and would fit in a wallet, like it did in the old Maverick, but I never got one cut....

The new TV for the AS has remote entry on the door.

Hiding a key

We put the key in a plastic bag in a stinky slinky. We rarely use the slinky, since we use a port -a - potty in our trailer. Or we use a hide a key box and put it in the back of the truck under something. The back of our truck doesn't lock.

I hide 2 keys....different ones. One opens a compartment. Therein I hide the entry key. Hopefully you have or can fashion the compartment key to resemble an entry key.

I've got a complete set of spare keys in a pill bottle bolted to the propane hold down bracket, inside the cover. Painted it silver, you'd have to be looking for it to know where it is. Haven't needed them so far.
