|Geocaching Bison Tubes|
Many geocachers know that geocache maintenance is extremely important when it comes to the continual fun and overall satisfaction of the geocaching experience.
Why you may ask?
Debate-ably if a geocache owner takes responsibility for their geocache hides and checks on them on a regular basis then this can improve the chances that a geocache is in the best condition possible. For example, bison tubes. Those crafty micro geocaches have been a staple and bane of geocachers for many years. The biggest complaint is usually a soggy log book and we know what the main cause is. Bad o-rings.
|Bison Tube O-Rings|
The one part of a bison tube that requires maintenance is the o-ring which helps seal the cap from the body. Because of age and the influence of the outside elements, the o-rings become brittle and fail. This then allows a better chance for moisture to enter and play havoc on the log.
So it is highly recommended as part of your geocaching maintenance to check and if necessary replace the bison tube o-rings. This will help in avoiding a log book of goo and keep our fellow geocachers happy.
By the way this is a random website I found that sells bison tube o-ring replacements:
