A Needle in a Haystack

My first two caches were pretty easy finds. For my third I decided to be a little trickier. I went to Micheal's and purchased a fake cactus. I cut a hole out of the bottom and filled the thing with rocks (for weight). I then epoxied a small Glad container into the bottom and sprayed the lid with some rock/sand looking spray paint....

I think it turned out pretty good!

Here it is in its cache location......

  3. Very cool -- although there are going to be a lot of people picking needles out of there hands from trying to look under a real cactus :^)

  7. Wow, that is an evil one. Would like to do one like this, but I live in Canada, we do not have cactus. It would look pretty bizarre.

  9. Hey! Today was my first time geocaching... So much fun! Woohoo!

    N e how, love your cactus creation... I'm from Canada, and like Nicolas said, it would look bizarre in our wilderness... But for comedy's sake, why not? :-)

  10. Hi,
    I stumbled upon your awesome blog via Pinterest. I really dig this geocache hide and I'd love to copy it. Any idea where I can find that cactus?
    Thanks,
    Susan

    1. Hi Tobie2, sadly the pack-rats got this one and it was all chewed up like the NEXT week. I think I got it at Michaels craft store!
