Cache Candles

Recommended Posts

I am new to the sport of geocaching and I love it. I want to leave unique and usefull items in the caches I visit. Would you be interested in finding backpacking candles? By that I mean taking Altoid tins and shoe shine wax tins and melting wax into them with two to four wicks. I know this item would not appeal to everyone but I think it would be a hit with some. What do you think? I have read the threads about cache loot and you have stated that you like pins, buttons, pathces, and coins. I just want to make an item that you might use. Please give me your ideas.

Sounds like a good idea to me. You could put a personal geocaching logo on the outside and use them as a signature item.

 

A few cautions: First, would they melt in ammo cans on hot days? If so, would the lid keep the wax from making a mess? Second, don't use scented wax because it could attract animals.

Um... Yeah...what they said.

 

Wherever you go there you are.

I would like to find one of them, but I am a chronic worrier. I live near some fire prone areas and I would hate it if a fire was somehow linked to geocaching. Even if the candle did not cause the fire, if people think it did...
