How Is This For A Container?

Thanks everyone for the compliments. Good to know that this is OK. The white showing through was a learning process. I know now that my future ones will definitly be painted before I start putting all the camo on. And it's not finished yet. The glue was still wet so I couldn't add any more dirt and such. Today it should be dry enough that I will add more to try and cover up the white even more. I hope that it will stay water proof, I had to adjust the lip so it wouldn't be so hard to take the lid on and off. I'm going to be placing this one close to home so I can do a lot of maint. checks. This is going to be a learning cache for me.

 

For how I did it, very easy, used liquid nails and just glued pieces of bark all the way around, then where the bark didn't cover and put glue all over and attaching each piece to each other, then rubbed old leaves and dirt into the glue. I'm real curious to see how it hold up to the weather...

I think I'm ready to place my first cache. I have only 36 finds right now and haven't found anything like the container I want to use. I bought a 2 gallon paint bucket and made it look like a log. Think this will be OK to use?

I love it; I have been telling all my family about it, well the ones that I've explained what geocaching is.

 

I'm also like CompuCash, I want to know how you done it.

 

Very creative.

I use cheap $1 a tube clear caulking compound to do similar things -

You would think people that can use a complicated GPS unit to find a L&L or any other container in the woods could at least be intelligent enough to put it back like they found it. :rolleyes::ph34r:

 

I'm still curious about how FUSE SCRC did his camo job, did you use some kind of glue??

 

would you believe a simple screw top lid -

yup - couldn't get crewed back on -

I'd like to know how he did it cause I've got a 2 gallon metal barrel with a sealing lid and ring. It'll be pretty waterproof, unless you submerge it, and any cacher with common sense will be able to open /close over and over again without hurting the seal.

Hey there Airmapper... Sorry I didn't reply earlier, I didn't get on the forums the last week or so. Here is a copy of what I emailed another fellow Geocacher on how I did it.

 

"This was put together in about 30 - 45 minutes. I wasn't really sure what I was going to do as far as camaflaging the container till I got in the woods and started working. It was extremely easy. I knew that I wanted it to look like I log but wasn't sure how I was going to accomplish that. Basically all I did was this. I had a couple extra tubes of Liquid Nails sitting around the house. So I brought those to the woods and then started working. I just glued large pieces of bark around the sides of the container hight wise - up and down. Then for all the areas that the bark pieces did not cover I rubbed glue over the areas then rubbed dirt and crushed up leaves into the glue. Let it dry overnight and then did the glue and dirt/leave thing again the next day on any area's that I missed. Total time was 30 - 45 minutes max."

 

See your Avatar and name, guess you fly? I'm in flight school now, have 26 hours logged in a R22. Flying is the best thing I have ever done and hope to be doing it for the rest of my life. Fly safe...
