I currently use a Pelican case that has an air tight seal with silica Gel blocks.  I already had the Pelican case but any sturdy air tight plastic box will do.  Here is one example of a DIY dry box.  You can find others if you Google DIY dry box.

Here is Thailand the photo stores sell both silica gel camera & lens storage boxes as well as larger cabinets that use electric dehumidifiers.  These cabinets use thermoelectric coolers to freeze the moisture from the air, then when the thermoelectric cooler shuts off the frost melts and flows out of the cabinet through small holes and into a collection tank where it is allowed to evaporate into the room.  This is much the same as a frost free refrigerator works.

Here is one example that is available in the US.  The description looks like a computer translation of what probably started out in Chinese so the description makes no sense unless you already know how the thing works.
