I love ammo cans too! I'm just curious why others like them? Because they're easier to find? More room for swag? Or just because they are rare?

I like them because they're sturdy and big enough to put cool stuff into ...
Very Happy

Are we just going to talk about ammo boxes now? I could just make a separate posting thingy for ammo boxes.

You were asking for theme ideas...seems the popular theme would be ammo cans...

haha, well I was back to answering his brainstorming question. There seemed to be a theme that we all like big caches, so why not have the theme be anti-micro. It's easy (ok well easier) to create a unique micro, why not add a little more challenge.

I was going to go w/Kid Friendly
As last years event seemed to have a fair amount of kids attending, and my 3 yr old loves finding big kid friendly caches
So, that would still lead to ammo cans...

Im for the Ammos I guess Smile

I like ammo cans since trackables can be found in them. If I recall, the last ammo can I hid got taken by a muggle and then the area got plowed by the Minneapolis Tornado last year so I couldn't replace it. I still love ammo cans! Razz

P.S. Oh wait, I hid an ammo can in plymouth that cachers have been "wetting their pants" over, literally! Laughing

Swimmer likes the anti micro theme. This allows for some creativity with larger caches including ones that young children would enjoy. An ammo box would limit the container choice. It would be just trading an ammo box for another ammo box.

I see a Poll is up!
Im leaning more towards Anti-Micro, as its kid friendly and big and like someone else had mentioned, if its ammo's, its trading ammos for ammos
Least w/this, different containers would surface!
