Bruce is right about that. It's an issue and it's nice you noticed the common lack of a proper sticker.
So when you start placing caches, the stick on labels are available on many sites. Writing on these labels is tricky but I have mine all filled out with my phone # if somebody wants to find out what that tupperware is doing in the woods!
I don't think there's any need to mention it while logging your finds. You'll find a huge variety in the quality of cache containers. The real good ones, ammo cans and Pelican cases can get a bit on the expensive side but you'll get favorable comments when you place those.
Keep up the enthusiasm and once you've found a hundred or so you'll have a good feel for what works and what doesn't.:)
We found our first travel bug this weekend and it has a goal of visiting fire departments. I really enjoyed giving this travel bug another chapter in its journy. This weekend coming up I will find a new cache to place it in for its next great adventure
if anyone is interested heres the link to the T.B.
I had two wooden fire engines that I painted . . . one labeled Bangor Engine 1 and one labeled Unity Engine 1 (the two departments I belong to) . . . I then sent them on a race to Alaska to one of several caches where my sister presently lives.
Another cool TB (in my mind) is my Bangor Ladder TB which includes a history of the Bangor Ladder (an actual special ladder invented here in Bangor Maine) . . . it's goal is to visit places where there have been major fires (i.e. Chicago Fire, Peshtigo, The Station Nightclub, etc.)
I just started this sport, its addictive, every find makes me want to do even more. I have a wife and 4 kids ages 16mo to 8yrs old they went with me to their first cache today and they loved it . I am a correction officer and was looking for a stress relief and this is it!!!!
I'm thinkin brdad was first in line to post for a reason.....
