The Wizards Box
Last year a tree fell in my backyard. (I was there to see it, and it didn't make a sound). Contained on said tree was a bird house (the prettiest birdhouse that you ever did see). The house got damaged a bit during the felling, and I didn't have a place to put it back up, so it sat in my basement, mocking me.
I decided to make a geocache out of it.
It has become my latest cache creation. I call it The Wizards Box. It is a bit of a gadget cache in that you need to do some "magic" to retrieve the container with the log book.
Inside is a PVC pipe, and in the bottom of that pipe is a bison tube with some metal bits JB Welded onto it. Unless one has extraordinarily long fingers one cannot reach the logbook.
The perch has a rare-earth magnet on the end. One needs to extract the perch, and use the magnet to fish out the container from the hole. Once that is accomplished it is a simple matter to open the bison tube and sign the log.
This is my first in-field puzzle cache that I have put together. The cache description is here: The Wizards Box. What do you think of it? Let me know in the comments below.
