|Small Cami Ammo Box Geocache|
I don't know if it is because there are so many possibilities of things an ammo box can hold or if it's the pirate within I just have to open up the chest to see the booty inside. I always seem to move just a little quicker when I now the size of a geocache is a regular. You just never know what types of treasure you may find.

So let's talk a bit about these sturdy geocaching containers. An ammo box is usually metal and was used at one time or another for holding and transporting ammunition or other important items. They are extremely rugged, water proof (or at least really resistant) and above all inexpensive. A small ammo can can run you $4 to $6US. A large around $15 to $18US. There are many places to purchase them but my favorite is at our local Army surplus store.
There are several sizes of ammo boxes: There are the smalls that have a single lock on the side and a handle on top. The mediums that can very in height and width. I have seen them tall and skinny and short and stocky. All depends on what they were used for. Then my favorite the larges. Usually they have a lock on each side and can carry a ton of stuff.
Ammo boxes are great fun to find. Because of their size the resourcefulness behind the hide can be quite unique. It is always based on the creativity of the hider. Many people simply cami up an ammo box and hide them under the proverbial 'tee-pee of sticks' others have more in-depth hiding places. All are filled with the anticipation of geocaching goodness.
Until the next geocaching adventure...
