Selfmade Geocaching/Signal Stuff

Recommended Posts

Hi,

please show all your selfmade things about Geocaching, Coins, Signal, etc.

I'll start with some of mine:

Sorry. This thread fits better in the Design-section. Please move it there. Thanks!

The finished puzzle :antenna:

 

I would get one of these for my kids for Christmas (the older ones might roll their eyes a bit but they'd still build it)!

I'm sorry, but at the moment there is only one puzzle which I made for me, but perhaps Geocaching will do some in the future? Maybe. By the way there are shops in the internet which can do a puzzle from every picture/grafic you like. Ravensburger is a very good quality. :antenna:

Does this count? I designed* a batch of signature items/bottlecap charms. I've yet to memorize the code for decoding additional hints on caches and I got tired of always having to write out the alphabet on whatever scrap of paper I could find, so I made these. I figured maybe other people have the same problem, and I've read that quite a few people out there like to collect signature items, so...best of both worlds? Maybe?

 

*I know it's a ridiculously simple design, and maybe there was a fast and easy way to go about it, but this was kind of a labor of love for me, so I'm pretty proud of it anyway.

Nice design! And useful, too! I think people will like those.

I love that cutting board! Anything laser engraved catches my eye, great job. Do you have your own machine?

Mine are sort of similar to Grufflepuff's, although didn't think to add the clip to them to make them into keyrings or zipper pulls. I did make up some little info cards on them though, and popped them in small ziplock bags (useful for keeping logs dry) so folks know what the design is, and what it means:

There's a "Roaring '20s" Mega Event next year, so I'm making a new collection of "kunarion's Cache Zippers".  These are serialized (not official trackable items) keychains, each with one cool zipper pull, and for now a solid 24-Karat gold* dragon! This time there's a "compass watch" number tag attached, so you'll know what you've found.  I'm also attaching an extra surprise already (not pictured).  I place these in random caches, and only containers in which they fit, so be sure you place a lotta decent sized caches. :D

 

Here's the protoype, the very first ones in the design:

*May contain no actual gold.

In Rome, Georgia, USA.  The theme for the Event will be "The Roaring 20s", so I'm designing some Art Deco retro things now for sig items, starting with the new cache zippers.  Wherever I go caching, I'll grab a few sig items to place.  Could be most anywhere, although I'm most often around the Atlanta area.

 

I don't go to the Event every year.  But I usually make the cacher card (it's like baseball card) and some other themed stuff.

Yeah Going Caching this year got huge attention. I was on the edge of going but there's been SO much travel this year for me I couldn't swing it. Next year is much more likely.

Very nice sig items!

You mean like this ... Von Cache Family  and this ... Ike13

I found those 2016 cards on a mountaintop in Virginia.  Wow, nice work and fun stories!

 

Should-a gone when it was in Pine Mtn.  Rome's a bit off my southbound path.  Then again, October's a good time of year.  Hmmmmm.....

Yes, they're printed by the Going Caching folks for the Mega.  This year I was a pirate.  Last year the theme was "ghosts", and I made a "Ouija Board" ROT-13 decoder for the back of my card.  I was a "ghost" in my old outfit.  Now I can re-use this "1920s" period costume again! :P  I have grand ideas for photoshopping myself into some old photo.  Not sure how to actually get the pose just right.  Gonna need a director/coach who has a photographer's eye to help line it up.
