  1. What's RTV?

    RTV is a two-part silicone rubber used in making molds for jewelry. It takes heat quite well and conforms to intricate items without becoming stuck to them. This made it ideal to use as the mold for my acorn.

    Wow, that sounds cool. Is it the same RTV silicone you can get at the autoparts store in a tube? Is there anywhere I can get more info on how to make molds? Do you have to heat the RTV once you place the medium you're using in it? For instance, if I used FIMO clay, could I heat the clay in the mold or would I have to take it out of the mold? I know I have asked alot of questions and I understand if you don't feel you have the time to answer them. I'm going to google it too. The answers provided by you folks so far have been extremely helpful.

  2. Retribution!? I doubt it. What if a hiker had found it. Do you think they take it out on hikers? Maybe a mountain biker? I don't think they're going to try to get back at anyone. Much less any group. If anything it may give them the idea to buy themselves a GPSR for future stashes. Better yet, it may discourage them completely from hiding stashes in the woods because they now know a geocacher could stumble upon it.


    Don't fear the person who stashed this. They obviously weren't the brightest people and I highly doubt they'll ever read the paper.

  3. I was scouting out a new place for a cache. As I was walking down the trail I noticed a large black shape out of the corner of my eye. I turned and found this structure.


    The inside looked as if someone had lived there.






    I found some active train tracks about 500 feet away so I couldn't place a cache here. Even if I could I wouldn't. I told a police officer friend of mine about it and he said that he's been called to those train tracks to break up fights between vagrants and that about 2 years ago one hobo killed another in those woods. I won't be back there any time soon. Later in the day though I did find this little guy.
