I wonder if the lack of LARGE caches is due to the lack of LARGE watertight containers. I have seen a few large containers that are those 5 gallon buckets which are ok, but most people dont seem to know how to re-seal them the right way. I have seen a few very wet caches because of this. I have one LARGE container that is a LARGE hard plastic 25MM Ammo/mortar round container for my MOOSE COUNTRY CACHE. It seals like a regular ammo can. If more of these were available I think more large caches might pop up. But unless I could find a good large container I would stick to the 50. cal cans as they can hold a good amount.
Where the hell is that thing?

in some cases as i pass through i grab a cache here and there when we head that way we will be sure to do some. we would love to see more large ones placed, not just in your area but across the state. if some one wants to help start a series for the kids i can get the five gallon buckets.
You can usually get the extra large ammo boxes at the army surplus stores for... hmmm, $10 more or less, IIRC.
I think people hide the micros as opposed to large because the containers cost less, often free, and it takes much less imagination to hide one than a large container (Don't take that wrong - there are plenty of micros hidden with much imagination). When hiding something larger than the standard ammo boxes, it takes a fair amount of effort to choose a location that won't get easily muggled.
I love to see extra effort involved in a cache regardless of size.

I actually looked up Canaan as a possibility for this weekends caching trip but after reading all the logs, they seem a little to easy to find. Sorry. Unfortunately I couldn't figure out that supposedly simple puzzle cache with the splats so had to rule that one out to.
We've never had a complaint and all the logs say they were GREAT CACHES!!!!!!!

Are you SURE the Canaan Caches are too EASY for you ?????????
I think you forgot about having FUN with it.!!!!!!!!!!!!
My OnRoadToMyersBeach cache is a 5 gallon, regular cover, and I've never had any problems with it leaking. It did get "kid-muggled" so I had to move it closer to the house. And you can buy water-tight covers for them at about $8.50. Loose Moose, which isn't mine, is also a 5 gallon, no leaks but not much in it when I was there. Size doen't guarantee there'll be anything in it! I also have a 50 cal. ammo and that works good as does big Tupperware. Keeping a kid friendly cache stocked costs money, especially when kids take the "good" toys and leave a marble. So I just have the one where I expect that to happen.
