Some geocaches are bigger and are usually pretty easy to find. Often they will be filled with toys and other things to swap. These are great geocaches for kids to find. But please remember the rule, trade even or trade up. This is not a box of free stuff, if you are going to take something from the geocache, you must replace it with something of equal or greater value.
Also common in the smaller size is the mint tin. This is also an effective hide in areas that don’t have a lot of moisture. It must be remembered that these caches are not waterproof and so if they are placed in areas that see a lot of water, they will not be able to adequately protect the log sheet inside.
Some geocaches are VERY small and can present quite a challenge at times to find them. On each geocache page, there is a rating on how small the geocache is. Keep this in mind when you are looking for the cache.
Even the humble sistema container, when placed thoughtfully and maintained properly can survive many years out in the elements and protect the contents of the geocache. Placing the container underneath something so that a, it is not spotted by just everyone passing by but also b, it is not directly exposed to the elements, is a good way to make sure that the container will provide years of fun and excitement for fellow geocachers.
Bison tubes are also quite universal. They can be adapted to any area easily and can provide a nice tricky find that people will love finding. To the right is a good example of a creative geocache that always makes a fellow geocacher smile! The entertaining “Found It” logs alone are worth it for placing a geocache like this.
