  That's one of those microcaches.  They are real tough to find.  You can put them almost anywheres.After I get my own cache up everyone is going to have to send me something.  I want to make a plastic piece with the Wildsurvive emblem on it and attach a Travel Bug.  We could get some cool people on the forum like that.

Question, what's a travel bug? I saw it on the site today but don't know what it is.

:woot: :thumbsup:  I've been watching your video's Dave, They're awsome!  :bounce: (I particularly like the fear factor you added by reminding us that it's hunting season and you weren't wearing orange...)  :scared:

My little girl was watching it with me and she said at the end of the 2nd video  " Oh WAIT! That Green thing!!" then you ended the video. Then at the beginning of part 3, you took the green thing (that was a dog!)  She said "Mommy why did he keep the the thing I wanted?"  happy097.gif

I guess she heard me talking about what you were doing, and in her mind she thought she could go out and find that same box! LOL!  :rofl:
Hummm she must take after her Mom.   :hugegrin:

Tell you what, you got a deal. I'll try to find little "tourist" trinkets from here, like patches or fridge magnets from local sites here and send them to you for cache finds if you return the favor.

IS not you big fibber, I had one. A 1968 VW van. First year with roll up windows. Tore the seats out of it and stuffed my motorcycle into it for going to the races. I used milk crates and a sheet a plywood for a bed. I had the 1600 bored to an 1800 type 4 with dual webers and it still did 0 to 60 in about 2 and a half minutes.

No No.  I mean that your going to have to attach a Travel Bug to something and send it via geocach express.

You can find out about them on Geocaching.com.  It's under "trackable items".  You buy a tag that you attach to a item.  The tag has a specific identification number.  You log the number on the site.  Put the item with the tag into a cache.  Some other person will pick up the item, check on the website where it's supposed to go and movce it along the best they can.  You can send the Travel Bug almost anyplace there is a cache.  Some people send them to cities or countries.  Or you can make it go to several countries.  You follow it's progress online as it moves.

Ok, I'll check into it! I suppose a VW bus is a little big for a cache box isn't it?

Has anyone ever done this? Made a micro cash a little distance from a normal cash and put a key in it, and that key unlocks the main cash?

I don't know if anyone's tried it before but it sounds interesting.  They do have what they call a multi cache.  First cache has a clue to the second class close by.  The second cache has a clue to a third. Till it leads to the final cahce with the geoswag in it.

The mold was a good idea.  Not to practical for me though.  I'd have to use wax probably and they would melt in the hot boxes during the summer.  Plastic would be hard to use and a little costly.

Maybe Matchbox has a model that will fit, I'll look into it.
