Everyone who caches has found a container with a small opening and a huge log inside which doesn't want to come out of the container. A cacher owner in SW Ohio has found a solution to retrieving the log without making a mess.
The cache owner takes a section of a wide drinking straw like the ones provided for frozen sodas. The cache hider cut a section as long as the width of the log roll and sliced the straw along the length.
The log is the inserted into the opened straw section.
Presto, the wrapped log now passes in and out of the container with no damage to the log.
