    Sheesh! "Properly marked"? LOL! I'd bet you'll find that 90% of them are not "properly marked".

    Default Proper Marking

    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.

    I've got a few of my own fire-related TBs floating out there . . .

    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.)
