What's The Most You've Spent Settup Up A Cache?


Followers 0

Recommended Posts

I'm working on my next puzzle cache. It's ambitious. So much so that I've lost track of what it's costing me to set it up.

Concrete: $5

3/4" plywood: $15

Hardware: $8

Set of Technical Drawing Pens: $80

Ammo Can: $4

Router Attachment for my Dremel: $20

Router bits: $18

Flourescent Pink Spray Paint $5

Sculpey Modeling Clay: $10

Translucent Sculpey: $4

Embossing Powder: $3

And now I'm thinking about getting a real router for about $120

I cannot put a price on the 100+ hours I've spent carving, drawing, scouting.

 

(edit to add some forgotten items)

Concrete tint: $5

Rebar: $4

 

This is getting out of hand. :smile:

 

Granted I'm going to have some nice tools and drawing pens when I'm done, but I wouldn't have spent all this if it wasn't for this damnable cache idea.

I put out a terracache (Banjo Music aka Why is Daddy Crying?) that cost about $120. $160 if you want to count the money I spent on gas.

 

My average regular sized cache costs me $30 to $50.

 

My average event cache (hosted) costs me about $75 to $150. (Most events I attend cost me about $25 to $50 because I don't drink cheap alcohol and I ALWAYS bring enough to share.)

 

My micros usually cost less than $5.

Well over 100 on a cache sitting no my shelf waiting for the perfect location. Well over 100 on another one that should go out this spring (though the FTF prize won't be anything near $100...)

 

However I feel completely free to spend nothing on a cache as well and use the junk laying around my house for the container and log book etc.

It depends on the cache size.I started out between $10.00-$20.00 buying from the dallor store but now I am shopping at walmart and sporting good stores.I have 2 ammo cans ready to place.Each has about $50.00 worth not including the FTF that I spent a few hours making.My better half said I was obsessed with caching.I said NOT ME .
