Pineapple cache

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I am looking to create a pineapple shaped cache. I have looked on Amazon and having trouble finding one that would work. Has anyone created one? I am planning on hiding it in an evergreen tree so it has to be a small or micro. Can anyone give any ideas about how to create one using materials that I can find? 

Thanks!

Unless there is a particular reason why this needs to be a pineapple, why not use a pine cone? I have seen several pine cone caches. It it needs to be a pineapple, try painting a pine cone.

Are you going to try to PSYCH everyone out with your cache?

We looked once, a pineapple in a tree with pinecones seemed fun,  but most we found were ceramic or brass.  Fragile or big bucks.

We lost interest, but IIRC (and found it  :-),   we did find a company  that had plastic ones.     You'll have to paint them...

I've seen plastic fruit of various kinds at the local crafts store, in the floral section with the dried flowers, vases, floral wire, etc.

That could be fun. And of course, there's the classic fake apple in a pine tree.

There was a nearby cache that was a fake pear in an apple tree.  Not just an apple tree, but an apple tree in an apple orchard.

You can always make one with a 3d printer

That's a cool looking piece, but a little big - 6" x 3" - it might be pushing regular size.

The OP is a fan of the TV show Psych, as am I.  One of the many fun things about the show Psych is that there is a pineapple in each episode.  From IMDB: "As a running gag, in every episode, you'll find a pineapple, the word "delicious", a fist bump, the phrase, "I can't do this right now", and the question "What?" "

Yes, I am very much a Psych-o! It has been my favorite show for many years and I have seen every episode many times and still find it to be hilarious :) 

I am looking to do a Psych puzzle in my hometown and I am really hoping I can find a pineapple shaped cache. I just think that would be amazing! I am on the look out for a pineapple. I considered doing 3D printing, because I have access to it at our library for free, but I have to wait for this to be over because they are not open yet. I googled it a bit and some people say that 3D printing may not be suitable for a cache. Thoughts?

Look in party stores for plastic drink containers and decor, especially luau decorations, and in stores that have a large variety of plastic drink glasses.  And look in thrift stores.

 

You’ll have more options if you’re using the pineapple as just a cover or camo or decoration for a more standard Geocaching container.

A search for "plastic pineapple" provide many options.   It would be easy to drill a hole from the bottom to fit in a bison tube,  film pot, or even a soda preform (aka petling in Europe) if the fake pineapple was large enough.

Gotcha, I admit I missed your reference earlier.  Nice one!  I'm watching the series for the first time on prime, I'm on season 5 now.  Great series.

First of all, that is a picture from one of the best episodes, and the reason I fell in love with the show (seriously, watched one episode before (Shawn rescues darth vader), then watched Last Night Gus, and went back to the pilot and watched the series!

Second. I got the "blueberry" comment but I wasn't sure if that was from a person that knew the reference.

:)

I actually found a water bottle from a drug store that was shaped like a pineapple. It is a bit bigger than I wanted and I wasn't sure if that was a good container. I opened it and it seemed pretty secure so I may end up getting that once I find a good spot. I am trying to find a location that somehow fits with the show. So far trying out Spencer drive :)

Not as good as Spencer, but Father Henry school is name related.

My latest Cache have several gadgets, and three of them was 3D printed.

Up to now, two 3D printed gadgets are suitable.

For example one of them was a part from a  digital sundial which do there another job.

The part have no mechanical stress and is too difficult to make from stainless steel or stones. Ideal for 3D printing.

That Box looks nice and i like the mechanism very much, but it is not solid enough for geocachers. After a few crashes and a few modifications, I gave up.

Last Night Gus was my favorite episode.  None other came close.
