Anybody know where I can get a large old inexpensive cooler or something eaually large to use for a cache container? I've been looking on Craigslist and haven't seen much.

It doesn't hold water. That for sure would have been worth an 8th misdemeanor.

Is that why they decided to not pursue the charges? Because the case didn't hold water?

I'm here all week! Tip your waiters!

Back on topic, garage sales are a great idea for stuff like that. Of course there might be more available early and late in the season, rather than in the middle...

Yes, I was thinking of checking some garage sales. It just isn't one of my favorite things to do. I think I'll stop at the goodwill on my way home from work sometime, too. That coffin thing is never going to die, is it?

Does it have to be a cooler? Could you use a plastic storage bin instead? Coolers aren't always watertight so a storage bin might be easier to find.

I have one for you. The reason we don't use it for our cooler anymore is because the hinge is broken. Since we live so close, drop me a line if you want it.
