Hi!

There are several articles that says DMSO containing buffers are to be a
good storage solution. You can also take a look at the article below for
an additional buffer.

K Muralidharan, C Wemmer. Transporting and storing field-collected
specimens for DNA without refrigeration for subsequent DNA extraction
and analysis. BioTechniques Vol. 17. 1994.
