Nano vs Micro

16 posts in this topic

I am new and now understanding that a micro is the size of a 35 mm film case, nano, to me, sounds like something really tiny.

Is there a definition of the size of a nano?

 

I am in Oshkosh, WI and am starting to like this new hobby so much that I am actually getting a better phone so I can use the Android applications to help me out. :laughing:

No nano is not a defined size, it is still classed as a micro. But if you wonder what one looks like .....

Some of us call that a blinker (or a blinkie), and use the term "nano" to refer to a very small micro-cache, even if the container is something other than a blinker.

 

Personally, I consider a nano to be any micro that is small enough that it can contain only a custom fit log sheet. As such, I consider smaller bison tubes to be nanos.

There is no official term called nano. A nano is a micro. Its a commonly used term for very small micros.

Keep in mind those things usually are magnetic, so they can be stuck under/behind a metal object :laughing:

Ah, won't you be surprised when you find a magnetic keyholder hidden in a tree stump!

I knew the water was bad in New Jersey but I didn't know it was that bad. :rolleyes:

I consider a nano to be a micro that is smaller than a 35mm film pot or a "keysafe" container.

 

Magnetic blinkies or very small screwtop containers are common nanos.

 

Nanos are often disguised to fit their surroundings and can be painted the same colour as their surroundings or even made to look like things. I've seen nanos inside hollow metal bolts, behind those flexible magnetic "stick on" signs and even inside snail shells!

NANOS ARE NOT GEOCACHES. DON'T HUNT THEM. :o

:o You wouldn't have a hard time if you would just remember your glasses when caching! :o

Since you asked...Those little button things are evil. Even bison tubes should be banned. They take this hobby to a ridiculous level of bizzarro absurdity. Let's get back to the roots! Lifting lamp skirts in Wal-Mart parking lots is not geocaching. Anything smaller than a film can is nonsense. Don't get me started.

Of course, there are those of us who thoroughly enjoy the challenge of finding such caches. Some of my favorite finds have been 4-star camouflage caches, many of which are nano-caches (blinkers, small bison tubes, and various custom containers that are just big enough to hold a custom fit log sheet).

 

If you don't enjoy them, then I recommend searching for larger caches that you do enjoy.

I've found film cans under skirts.

Hide quality =/= container quality

 

I got no problems with nanos if they make sense and take me somehwere (I'm not ven picky about where really)
