Example: A large bucket. Unusual geocache containers that just don't fit into other categories. Generally, you want to use a container that is:. Below are some general examples of what people use for containers. Some are better than others. Lids are usually made from the same material as the base, which reduces the loss of quality of the seal over time. Military surplus ammo boxes make excellent geocache containers, provided that they have a rubber gasket to ensure a good seal.
This sort of geocache can sometimes even survive the area being flooded. This picture shows the two most common sizes of ammo box. They are sometimes referred to as. They are usually sold in the color shown, which is generally a good base for any camouflage which you might add. It's a good idea to erase any original military inventory description such as you can see on the picture.
You don't want a person who accidentally finds your geocache to think that it might contain live ammunition. Better still, once you've eliminated the frightening words, you could paint "Official Geocache - Contents Harmless" in large, friendly letters on it. Although this shouldn't, in theory, mean very much a terrorist could easily write "Contains Kittens" on a bomb, after all , in practice it can mean the difference between your local "muggle" opening the box and discovering our game, or calling the Bomb Squad.
Many original military markings can be removed by isopropyl alcohol rubbing alcohol , with sand paper or with a wire brush. You can also paint over it. This picture shows an older type of ammo box. It doesn't have a rubber gasket, which means that moisture can get in eventually. This will make the logbook and other geocache contents damp; it will also start to produce rust, which will permanently stain any contents which are not in sealed bags.
If you have a container like this, try to reserve it for a dry place. All of the above ammo boxes would normally be considered "Regular" size containers. There is probably a better name for these containers, but they are sometimes advertised as storage bins to keep supplies dry on kayaks or small boats.
They are often durable and watertight with a gasket in the lid. They make some of the best large containers you can find. Their disadvantages are cost unless you can get them used , possible degradation in sunlight and they tend to be white with either red or blue lids - which makes them highly visible. Because they are made of polyethylene, they are hard to paint any other color. The name "GladWare" corresponds to a range of products, but to geocachers it refers to the thin plastic food storage containers which look like this.
These are fine products for storing food in your refrigerator, but they are not designed for any form of exposure to outdoor conditions. They will quickly become cracked and the lid will not fit properly after being out in the weather for just a few days.
Experienced geocachers avoid using this kind of item as a geocache container. It can be tempting to use an ice cream container, coffee can, cookie tin, or some other apparently waterproof packaging to hold a geocache. It's free, and you might even feel that you're helping to recycle. But like GladWare, these containers are designed to be used once only. They are just strong enough to get their contents to you and keep it fresh long enough for you to consume it.
All of the disadvantages of GladWare apply to the plastic in these containers, and outdoors the tins soon rust and fill with water. It's hard to completely remove the odor of food from these containers, which may attract animals. To some people, Tupperware is almost a synonym for geocache. Whether it's original Tupperware, or a similar box from Rubbermaid, Curver, etc, everyone recognizes a polyethylene box with the push-to-seal lid as being a good choice.
This is not to say that P-ware boxes do not make good geocache containers, but they do require more maintenance visits than, say, ammo boxes. The classic "Micro" size geocache is a 35mm or APS film canister. However, not all of these are created equal. The most commonly seen film canister has a black body with a gray lid. The gray lid appears to form a seal inside the black main part, with the outside of the lid forming a lip which looks like it might keep water off.
However, it does not. In the tough outdoor world, you will often find this kind of container with a soggy log sheet.
The other kind of film canister is usually opaque white and has a much better reputation for keeping the log dry. The lid fits snugly, almost forming a proper seal; certainly it keeps more moisture out than the first type of film canister.
A plastic pill bottle has some good qualities for a micro geocache albeit a large one : the plastic tends to be very tough and the lid usually fits well. The only downside is that water gets in easily, so you have to check it after rain often. Often, micro caches are disguised as other day-to-day objects, such as bolts, reflectors, rocks, and even chewing gum!
These can be especially tricky to find, but after a while checking the bolts under benches for wiggle will become second nature. It can often be difficult to retrieve logbooks from these containers, so remember to bring tweezers or a similar tool to help you out.
They come in a few different sizes and tend to be pretty waterproof. They don't hold a lot of logbook paper, and the logs themselves can sometimes get stuck inside the capsules. This is a special magnetic metal container, possibly the smallest of containers. It is usually pretty waterproof. Logs can get jammed inside occasionally; if this happens folks use a tool like tweezers to get the paper out.
There are many other possible containers: bison tubes, waterproof matchboxes, water bottles However, as you can see above, many options exist that do not require an additional purchase. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki. Add Video. Add Image. Contents [ show ]. Categories :. Cancel Save.
