Storage of dry DNA? Any experience?

How long is it propper to store genomic DNA in a dried pellet?
How would it be possible to store DNA when a -20° C refrigerator
is not immediately at hand for up to one week (because of  a
field project in a tropical country)? Or do you know a method for
storing tissue at room temperature for later DNA extraction?

Thank you
