    I know thisis similar to my last poll, think of this as my market research!

    Very simple really, for a regular sized cache, which do you prefer to find? Or find easier to get into? Or whatever really, BUT if you vote for 'other', can you please elaborate on what it was, thanks

    I've voted tupperware. I like the snap lock plastic boxes best. I don't like ammo cans because they're often noisy to open and so liable to attract attention in quiet spots, sometimes the catches are very stiff, and they can also be painful on occasion...!

    I doubt if many will agree with me about tupperware... opcorn:

    I did vote tupperware BUT would like to specify that cache containers should be the quality, well sealed and fairly rugged ones not the cheap and quite nasty variants - they will crack and leak and after a while the cache contents will be permanently soggy, ergh.

    As for size, not that you asked, but far rather a decent sized cache that can have TB's and swaps. Micros have their place but really only when the location is so good it warrants bringing people to Too often micros can be shoved in a grotty little hole in some place you just look at them and think, "why??"

    "I doubt if many will agree with me about tupperware..."

    We agree .
    We much prefer the clip close type container .

    I can't easily open or close ammos so have to ask hubby which makes me feel like a child .
    Plus too many times we've had difficulty finding ammos placed under the dead leaves under those wide spreading holly trees .That doesn't seem to happen with tupperware .
    We like Greens

    for durability and dryness nothing beats an ammo box. safe from mice and so on and with the normal level of maintenance should remain easy to open to all.

    those tupperware containers are limited in lifetime and so on. the cheap ones will break too quickly and the expensive ones are not much better.

    either are better than margarine tubs!!! and i've seen a few of them!

    Tupperware does it for me - either snap-loc, or screw top (phwaaaaar)

    at the end of the day it depends on what you're happy with. you've found plenty so what type do you like the most...

    you could also go along the route of the unusual... well it would suit your personality :lol: and find something odd that isn't normally used but could be used as a disguise...

    We've actually used a container that was used to hold sunflower seeds, it fitted the hidey hole like a glove. The next one is likely to be a large ammo box - hopefully big enough to hold a football! The one after that is likely to have to be custom made and the next one, well we have to find a suitable place to put it first but yet again it should be wicked!

    Well I think I really like ammo boxes, but since that trip to Birmingham and all those unusual caches up there I thought perhaps something a little different BUT I'm not being very inventive at the mo work is completely draining my creative juices!!! :angry:
