spicytuna Posted August 25, 2005 Share Posted August 25, 2005 Hi, New member here. Although I'm fairly new to geocaching, I'm an avid climber out here in the Canadian Rockies and I've recently volunteered to help maintain the hundreds of summit registers located throughout my area. I'm also interested in fabricating some weatherproof containers to replace some of the aging/damaged ones and figured the geocaching world would be the expert at this. The container I'm looking for has to be able to withstand up to 9 months of harsh winter conditions and be completely waterproof. It also has to be strong enough to withstand the crushing force of a collapsing cairn and be packrat proof. The current containers we use are made of PVC pipes with a sealed end and twist off end. These seem to be pretty weatherproof - after all, they were designed to confine water in the first place. I've seen containers made of cast iron pipes as well as ammo boxes but the latter would probably be a little too obstrusive while a cast iron pipe could be a little heavy to carry. Any ideas ? Should I stick to the proven PVC pipes ? Anyone have access to a cheap supply of titanium tubes ? Ken. Quote Link to comment
