I don't know if this has ever been put through the wringer...but I was curious as to what is the most creative cache containers people have seen. I got lots of complements on my "Missle" for the Buddy Cache at phalen....what other interesting things have held treasures that you've come across or used?

The most interesting container I have seen is Bob Hiker's Hard Rock Cache in Bryant Lake Regional Park: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?ID=40676

It's not so much the container, it's the cammo for the container. That was like my 59th find in three days so I saw through the cammo right away but several people have had a difficult time spotting it.

Much like Bobhiker's above but placed earlier and slightly more cunningly is IBcrashen's Arrow Above Skyline in Duluth. Awesome!



The cache is in plain sight. . .or is it?

out of the ones I have found, Jidana 3 (cache of the month for feb 2004) is pretty unique.

I have to agree, Jidana 3 is really good.
Then I have to brag.
Coming soon to Annandale, "IDon'tKnow's 3rd Base". It's in place, but not ok'd yet. Ok, it's one of mine, but I think it's a goody.

Mary Hills by eroom had an interesting container--it was pvc pipe, with bark glued to it to make it look like a small log. I walked right by it a couple times, and even looked at it once or twice as well, before Perrine finally picked it up and said "looky here!!!" The cache has been inactive since July, 2002, and was archived in August, 2003, so I don't think I'm giving away any secrets here. You can still see the archived cache page by typing in GC5A2E on the Hide & Seek a cache page from the gc.com site.

There is no question that "KB" is the King of "interesting" containers.

Some of his containers have spawned long threads right here on this very board. Smile

Wasn't there one inside of a bird house up in the Northwest Metro at one time? I remember one called "Cache on a stick" as well.

There are two caches on a stick that I have visited. One is in Staring Lake Park in Eden Prairie and the other is in Pennsylvania Woods in Golden Valley. It was not so much of a surprise either time as they were pretty obvious but this particular instance WAS a surprise:

You read the hint all the time anyway so does it really matter? Smile

He's got some nice hides here...

Although that last one is a little iffy. Its probably not a good idea to mount a suspicious box on or near an electrical control panel.
