clubstew Posted June 24, 2013 Share Posted June 24, 2013 We get a lot of moisture here in the Pacific Northwest and I'm constantly running across wet and damaged logs. I carry a couple RITR log books with me and leave a sheet or two when a log is too wet to sign, but I'm surprised how many caches use cheap ZipLoc knock-offs that easily get ripped and don't seal. There are other brands that are decent, but is spending an extra buck or two too much? As I prepare a few themed caches to place, I'm consider what other ways to keep logs dry. Even RITR paper doesn't hold up well in standing water, so keeping the water out is key. Seems with most lock-n-locks the seals dry out. Same with the Bison tubes, though I've seen some COs put extra seals in there (good idea). But as I enjoy hiking and backpacking when out caching, I see no point in hiding micros and nanos in the large open woods. So I'm thinking ammo cans are best, but have seen some tackle boxes that look like ammo cans. Pretty much the same build, but constructed of plastic so won't rust (though ammo cans typically go years without rust). Any other ideas? Of course picking a good, dry location is key but not always an option out here. Quote Link to comment
