Cache Name: "Stand By Me"

Cache Concept: Nanocache hidden in a fake railroad spike in the middle of a very long railroad trestle bridge

Cache Owner: Groundskeeper Willie (a/k/a Will Wheaton)

 

Dang! I may actually be able to hide that cache! I know of a railroad bridge near here that is on an abandonded spur, I just don't know if the other nearby cache is too near.....

Tennis Ball Canon Cache

 

To complete this cache you must bring a can of hair spray and a lighter.

 

Coord's will take you to a vertically mounted pipe, capped on the bottom. Small cache sits inside the pipe, near the bottom, on top of a spacer raising the cache above the bottom (area henceforth to be known as the combustion chamber). Note small hole drilled in the side of the combustion chamber.

 

To obtain the cache, spray a 2-3 second burst of hair spray into the hole in the combustion chamber. Immediately hold lighter to the hole.

 

After retreiving the cache:

Clean out your shorts

Sign the log

Place cache back in the pipe

 

!!!CAUTION!!! Do not place any body part in front of the large opening on the top or the small opening in the combustion chamber during the ignition process. !!!CAUTION!!!

 

:lol:

I'm surprised no one has said a cache buried in a cemetery yet.

What about a fake tombstone in a cemetery? :lol:
This wasn't close enough for you? :D

and the multiple 35mm film cans in a can has been done and published several times-search Needle In a Haystack.

 

I know it by another name.

 

I also know "stand by me", but the premise is entirely different.

I don't see any reason why not. Why wouldn't this get approved?

I can't think of a single reason ... combustible hair spray, light a match, enough force to send a tennis ball into the ozone layer ...

I think this might be pushing the limit as to what Moose Mob will allow but here goes ...

 

To make all those FTF cachers work really hard for the prize... take a small bison tube micro cache, wrap it in bacon and feed it to meanest dog in the neighborhood. Post the micro with coordinates that match the dogs back yard. The cachers that logs the FTF is truely a compulsive, numbers only, lovable, geo-nut. :lol:

 

The cache name would have to be "Paul Lazzaro." Extra FTF points for the FTF'er who could tell you why it was named that.

So you think the same approvers who sanctioned the placing of a cache in the radioactive wasteland of an abandoned nuclear reactor would somehow have qualms about a silly little potato cannon? :lol:

This sounds like a Potato Gun ... these things will shoot a potato through the side of a house. :lol:

 

clearpath, that is definitely like a potato gun, only it's the predecessor. My dad was in Viet Nam in '66. They used to take the old style beer cans (they were steel, straight up and down sides, with a rim on top and bottom) and cut tops and bottoms out of three, poke four holes in the top and two in the bottom of the fourth and tape them all together with black tape. Squirt lighter fluid in the front, insert tennis ball to the first joint, give it a good shake and apply flame. They used to stand at one end of the bar and shoot down a stack of beer cans at the other end. Had to let them coold down after a couple of shots as the tape would heat up, get soft and cans would fall apart.

 

I've plans for a potato gun and have to make one sometime in the future. :D

We have been experiencing shortages on film cans lately around here

 

And here in the UK too. I think film canisters may become an endangered species due to the rise of the digital camera. We'll have to start looking for alternatives :lol:

 

Back on topic I know that there are caches so deep underwater you need specialist diving gear to reach them! So my impossible one would be a cache at the bottom of Loch Ness :D

I've made them before - boy are they fun! Dangerous, but a lot of fun. You should have seen the looks on the faces of the folks that saw me as I put it together in the home improvement store :lol: A friend of mine even tried to rifle the barrel on his.

 

Measuring the ramrod is key. :D

Night caches that would require flashing high powered flashlight into the bedrooms of mods :lol:

Sounds like my fantasy come true!

 

Better get my moose rifle out.

 

:lol:

Quiggle's response made me think of the old groucho Marx line- "One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I'll never know." :D

Does this mean you're planning even more twisted and mischevious caches for us? :anicute:

 

I'm working on one right now (in between Katrina recovery projects) that involves a puzzle so complicated, it'll truly be a 5 difficulty. I posted the story at LAGeocaching.org (and here) for the cache. It'll tell you something about what to expect. I've generated the 20 pen and ink drawings, but I haven't drawn the maze. That in itself will be complicated because of the nature of the type of maze means some serious hand-crafting on my part.

 

Speaking of hand-crafting, it'll involve concrete, carpentry, electrical, and art. (I couldn't figure out how to include plumbing). I've been working on the design of it for the past three weeks. I'm even going to have First, Second, and Third place commemorative Bill's Bayou coins for the first three finders. I'm hoping for a reaction like "Holy Cow" or "I'm gonna KILL BILL."

 

S'anyway, long as I'm here, how about a cache with an ammo can full of rotten eggs in front of an ex-husband's house. The one he moved into after hooking up with that 20-year old secretary walking away from a marriage of 25 years and four kids. We'll call it "Trophy Wife Trophies".

 

And a HOLY COW goes out to everyone who's come up with some hillarious caches. I especially like the one full of laser pointers near the end of a runway in the shape of a 4 foot cammo tube! Youse guys have twisted minds. My kinda folk. :cool:

I'm surprised no one has said a cache buried in a cemetery yet.

 

In South Carolina.

What about a fake tombstone in a cemetery? :D
This wasn't close enough for you? B)

 

Well, theoretically, you could search discretely for a fake tombstone in a cemetery. :D It would be a bit harder to do so for something buried in the same place. ;) I coulda made it worse by saying a night cache buried in a cemetery...

Oh wait, already done and approved. :mellow:

 

I just read this tonight ,, man down right amazing

 

I second that! (and the logs are hysterical)

:ph34r:

 

Oh.

 

That would be our cache, #9 in the Psycho Urban Cache Series, named Psycho Urban Cache #9 - Hot Glowing Tribulations, waypoint ID GCTA5E

 

Yes, it is weird, and kinda gory, but the chances that anyone could suffer serious harm from the radiation or from the toxic chemical waste at the site or from the friable asbestos in the building, or even from the hantavirus present in the rodent droppings therein are rather small, so long as all each seeker wears their (required) protective suit and powered respirator (or SCBA apparatus.) Rather, the greatest danger is that someone could take a fatal or near-fatal fall trying to descend (or ascend) the 25 foot vertical shaft leading to the (now-abandoned) fuel rod storage room if they do not know how to properly use climbing gear.

 

However, if you want a cache that is difficult and challenging in other ways than sheer physical hazards (although they are there as well), you may wish to check out our Psycho Urban Cache #10 - Derelict Grunge Acropolis, GCT9NT. To be sure you get an idea of what I am talking about with this cache siting, you really should read the warning in bold orange on the cache listing page. However, to get a really good idea of what we are talking about, nothing beats an actual visit to the location -- what you will see in fifteen minutes is worth ten thousand words of warnings. Some of the log entries give hints of what may be expected.

A plain, un-camouflaged ammo can, sitting right out in the open in a huge field ...

 

 

 

... surrounded by about 10,000 EMPTY ammo cans. ;)

Hmm your giving me an evil Idea for this one but Camoflaged of course.

 

Hang a bunch of Decons in a tree with those snakes that popout of cans in a bunch of them.

And a log book in only 1.:D

 

Thanks for the idea.

 

Did that. I hid a snake-in-a-can cache 2 years ago for April Fools. Rattle Snake Creek

I'm not sure which is more disturbing - the cache itself or the fact that you are so well versed in the lifestyles of the park denizens, like the "proper" way to park if you are cruising for sex. Go figure.

Ammo can full of mud and a note "For all you cachers who like to leave items less valuable than you took, lets see what you have that's worth less than mud." :D

 

Actually, when I think about it, I would HATE to be the one to open after the FTF..there might be something "dumped" in it that may or may not resemble mud ;)

"Prison cache"

My job takes me inside the local prison several times a year, and I don't mean the public areas. Once I was even in the courtyard between the dorms with literally hundreds of prisoners walking past me the entire time I was there. Be a great spot for a banned cache, and it could be stocked with all the banned goodies: shovel, files, knife, gun and ammo, food... :D

 

PS to any cops, I won't really do it. :D
