Pictures - Cool Cache Containers (CCC's)


Recommended Posts

LOL Halden! I would be running from that... I didn't take a picture of the one I did for my micro. I might need to before I adopt it before moving. But I took a limb the was about 3-4" thick and about 18" in length. I drilled out a section underneath it that I put a flim canister into it and glued it there. It lies on the ground and you can't see the canister until you move it. Have had some that couldn't find it. I came up with that after finding a couple micros that had the round orange match containters fused to the end of a stick the same diameter.

One of the cowpies made it on the Front Page of the Texas Living section in the Dallas Morning News

This was Thumbkin #1. You unscrew the center (lighter wood) and inside find coordinates to stage 2.

Flounder has coordinates on the bottom for stage 2

UM.... A #2

#2 was my wifes' creation. Inside were coordinates to stage 2. Oh yeah, its' a chapstick container. Something you put on your lips. It was near a dog walking area as well. by accident.

Here's a few that I have. One of 'em is out in the field but I wan't say which. Locals, pretend you didn't read this.

 

See if you can guess what I do for a living without checking my profile.

This last one is my idea for a multi. A lag bolt into a post will hold one of these for ages!

Edit: Dang picture formating! I want real html.

Sorry for the red Xs. I just pulled the files down because I put those caches out in the field today. Kind of a fine line between sharing ideas and giving them away. I'll gladly email images to non-San Diegans.

If people can't find mine, I send a picture. Then some times, people still can't find them. With Flounder, I had a cacher on site when another showed up. The first guy had found it already. He let cacher 2 look for a bit, then asked if he wanted to see it.

 

He pointed to it, the 2nd cacher kneeled down looking right at the cache saying 'where'. According to them, he touched it twice still saying 'where?'.

This one ended up with a 4 rating because of the above. The FTF was tipped off by me as I mistakenly left a small label backing strip right by the cache. Otherwise who knows.

Here is a cache that a lot of folks were looking for, and finally found. Check out the paint job.

You guys are down-right SERIOUS about being FTF aren't you ?

Akulakat's camo'ed altoids container was our first find actually =)

 

It's not as bad as you'd think, but we did need the hint, which told us it was round. After that, it kind of stuck out a bit. The harder part was that it's under a lot of tree cover, so we had a hell of a time figuring out where the coords were. Overall it was a lot of fun to find =)

I'm really curious what the story was on this one. Was it really inside a library? One of the logs reads:

We rate this cache a 5 difficulty if you visit on a day Otis doesn't want to play, and a 1.5 on a day he does. We overthought this one last time, and my original hunch was correct. Found this in about 3 minutes on an Otis-friendly return visit.

(OtisPug was the cache owner.)

What the heck are they referring to? ;) I must know! :D

Below is a cache I placed as a memorial for our daughter. I cut a slab off the top of the stump to make the lid then I hollowed the log out with my chain saw. I then placed two dow pins in the lid and drilled out matching holes in the stumps base so the lid would stay put. It's big enough to fit a .50 cal ammo can in it. The stump weighs about sixty pounds. I carried it about a mile untill I found the most peaceful spot I could find.
