There are so many different ways to make a geocache and so many different type containers to use. You don’t “have” to create a geocache but its fun when you do because it keeps the game alive.
In this post I am going to mention our favorite geocache containers that we have come across while out in the field (lol) that have been categorized as being our favorite. Now remember that everyone is different and what we like might not be something that someone else likes…So please just keep that in mind.
- Old Peanut Butter containers. Just wash them out good, maybe add a little camo tape to the container and label it Geocaching. We like these because they are easy to access/open, it keeps the stuff inside dry and its big enough to add some trackables and tradables
- Large and Medium pill containers. Now I like when the log books are inside these and the pill container is inside another container as it just seems to keep the log sheet dry. I have seen folks put out large pill containers or pee containers you get from clinics/hospitals, camo it and rig it up to the tree or wherever you decide to put it
- Lock and Lock containers. These are those little containers that snap on each side. They are easy to open and you can stick them just about anywhere.
- Pre made bird houses
- Build one from wood and put a container in it
And I am sure that we will add even more to the list once we explore new and exciting geocaches from different places in the world
Once you get out there and discover different geocache types, it will quickly show you which ones you like and which ones are harder to use or that don’t keep log books dry, etc…. Even sometimes the way you find the container can give you an idea on how you would like to hide yours.. Do you like being able to take the cache down completely or only having to unscrew the cap?
These are all questions to ask yourself before setting up your first geocache. That is why I think it’s so important to find a bunch of geocaches before making your own. Don’t be afraid to jump right in!
I hope these little suggestions have helped you in some way and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me!!!
