My Geocache Creations Are Coming Along...

Had just enough free time this last weekend to continue on my geocache creations which will be donated to the NCGO Fall Fling 2011 Silent Auction.

These are all made with flare tubes. All have been primer-ed and repainted. The grey ones are done with stone textured paint and then coated in clear coat for durability.

They are about a foot long and have an O-ring seal. Seen above the first three are pretty much done. They will fit very nicely on the end of a fence (note the fence cap). The bottom of the flare tube is where you open them. Since the tube fits inside the post it will stay nice and dry.

The other two brown tubes will be covered in artificial plants which should be completed tonight. The concrete tubes in the back may or may not get cammied.

Had a lot of fun making these and I would like to thank the Dirtbag Geocaching Society for donating the tubes.

The finished photos should be out sometime tomorrow.

Flare tubes are great containers, especially in the woods. But they just look too much like pipe bombs to me (and more importantly, to muggles) to be placing in urban areas. But that is just my opinion. Great job on the construction!
