There's a New Cache in town - Part 0

So, we've found a few caches now - it's our turn to place one or two. This past weekend we took the trip to the local WalMart to check out containers. Finding a good, weather-proof container is important for our caches - we're in North-western Canada so it has to survive the ravages of winter.

It wasn't an easy task - most containers are designed for cupboards, not shrubbery - and at a reasonable price too! We did find a couple, but they would be most obvious in any hide, so I thought I'd do a bit of research on GeoCaching's forums - wow, talk about a great source of information.

The best tip, Camotape - from the hunting/painting sections of WalMart or Canadian Tire. One roll should do us fine. Now some of those other folk, now they have more time on their hands...

Part 1 will have more info on the upcoming cache.
