    Any one else come across a disguised cache, this one we found is a stone.

    Very cool Bru, I've seen smaller one like that to hide keys before but not that big

    Here in the city they are often disguised as bolt heads and meagnetically stuck to fences or parts of buildings. Super tiny caches.

    Up in the hills, blustery a hell, signing the cache log.

    Those are very cool.. I have found caches that look like nuts and bolts, and I finally found one that looked like a log.. (it was made out of ceramic or something) I will go back and take a pic of it if I get out that way again

    Also came across an old ammo box with synthetic leaves glued all over it, great stuff.

    I just found one on the Appalachian trail that was your typical plastic box, but stuffed into a punky stump, then the whole thing was covered with rocks. Awesome one to find.

    Hardest one for me to find was on top of a rock outcropping. I looked all over, on top, below, in the cracks and could never find it. Right when I was about to give up, I looked up and the ammo box was hanging in the tree by 550 cord and the box was spray painted to look like pine needles were all over it.. It was a cool cache

    Those are the ones that are the reason I do this stuff. I love it when I find one that makes me work. I get so much mroe satisfaction out of it.

    Some of the guys around here have come up with some crazy ideas. Some are amazing while others seem impossible. One such was an old fence post laying (mixed in with other debris) with a giant concrete ball at the bottom. Or so we thought. If you rolled the post over it exposed a metal ammo box cast into the cement at the bottom of the post.

    Found one that was inside an old soda can. The can was even weathered and crushed a little bit. I only found it because I nudged the "can" out of the way with my foot and I thought... "that's kind of heavy to be an empty can"

    The one and only cache I have found was on a mountain pass in Colorado. It was cleverly hidden in plain site. The cache was a cross pendant. We looked high and low. The damn thing was hanging right off the bottom of the sign that stated the elevation of the pass. If it were a snake we'd be dead.

    LOL! I have a hard enough time finding the tupperware ones with bright orange lids! :p
    I found a website awhile back that had all sorts of examples of cache containers people had made. One was inside a huge ponderosa pine cone.

    I have found a few cool ones too:

    1) A PVC pipe in a park that had a pressure safety sticker on it and looked official. When you pulled on the cap - the cache came out.

    2) A Iron fence post where the finial came off and the cache came out.

    3) One that I made was a two stage cache where when you find the first cache it has a riddle that leads you (about a mile away) to the local library where (after getting permission) I hid a hollowed out book. The clues on the first cache were to the call number of the book.

    Found a micro cache a few yrs ago with the kids, was a hollowed out bolt holding the bottom of a Stop sign to the post, we must have been to that cache 3-4 times before finding it.
