"When you go to hide a cache, think of the reason you are bringing people to that spot.
If the only reason is for the cache, then find a better spot."

Ho Ho Ho

I made an emergency stop at a certain unloved retail store for tree decorating supplies. While heading to the checkout I spotted a display for "collector's" holiday Coke bottles. My mind immediately said cache container.

We were hosting a 12-13-14 event, and I wanted to hide the container as a cache published for the event. I made an ornament hanger and stripped a lip balm container for the log to make the container.

With a Geocaching sticker on the bottom, we were ready for the hide.

Up close the container is readily visible.

About 15 feet away on the trail it is much less obvious.

I hope Santa was kind to all of you and your new year is happy, healthy, and filled with wonderful caches.

Rustiest Ammo Can?

This may be the worst ammo can I have seen in use as a geocache. It was located along the shore at Priest Lake and appeared to have been under water a few times while in place. Suprisingly, the hinges and latch still worked and the log was in usable shape.

It's easy to tell from the view at the cache location why this one went under a few times. It has since been archived. Too bad; we had fun.

Aced It!

It would have been embarrassing if I hadn't. ;)

Head on over to the Geocaching.com blog to take the cache hider's quiz. It's a fun way to review the guidelines.
