Second Chance Geo-Book Giveaway

Better put those thinking caps on if you want to enter It’s Not About The Numbers’ latest giveaway …

Thanks to American author Vince Migliore (GC handle: FolsomNatural), we have FIVE more copies of his new title Creative Containers For Geocaching (worth US$9.95 each) with which to reward lucky readers.

The 122-page manual features 19 DIY ideas, ranging from how to jazz up that bison tube to caches made from a hollowed-out log, a converted birdhouse and a dummy security camera.

In our July competition, we asked for photos of your geo-handiwork; however, this time we’re after the best five answers to this question:

If money (or time) was no object, what would your ultimate cache placement be?”

Would you follow Richard Garriott’s lead and place a cache on the International Space Station (GC1BE91)? Near the resting place of the ill-fated Titanic ocean liner? Or turn one of your properties into a spooky multi (GC2B024)? Or can you come up with an idea that would top his efforts completely?

Email kjwx@notaboutthenumbers.com with your answer by Friday, September 21. Don’t forget to include your name, postal address and GC handle; feel free to submit diagrams or images if they will help explain your idea better. Usual INATN entry conditions apply.

*If Lady Luck’s not on your side, you may prefer to buy your own copy of Vince Migliore’s Creative Containers for Geocaching from Amazon for US$9.95. To see more of the author’s clever geo-designs, visit his Creative Cache Containers website.

    The majority of multicaches that I’ve ever found have had consecutive stages only hundreds of feet apart, with the occasional one that’s maybe a mile away. I’ve always dreamed of creating an epic multicache, one whose stages would span the globe, and take you to all of the extraordinary places this world has to see. Just think how crazy it would be! You find the first stage and plug in the coordinates, only to find that your next destination is 10,000 miles away and requires a plane to get there!

    Whoops, meant to email that…

      That’s fine, Patrick … Comments on this page will be counted an entries too. BTW: I love your idea. Have heard of an old series of trads that were created in this spirit but they were meant to be completed by teams in different countries, with each member claiming the finds – even if they’d never been to GZ.

    I’m planning on doing a multi of three stages each with a mile between them.

    And my entry is:
    A geocache with its own perpetual power system. It would be in the shape of a sphinx inside a labyrinth. The cacher would have to answer a question to get it to open. The cache would dispense one pound of solid gold whenever someone answered the question correctly.

    So it’s now been 8 months since this contest ran. Can we see some of the cool, outrageous ideas?
