Tools Of The Trade

23 07 2010

Also known at TOTTs, we each use some standard ones to access caches and the logs, such as tweezers, nut on a string, water, grabber, magnet, screwdriver, flashlight, etc. This week, I’m featuring some of the more truly unusual equipment that I and my caching compadres use.

JAMES BOND DYNAMIC SUPER SPY EXPANDO LADDER
David T and Fisherwoman has one:

SWISS ARMY CARD
f0t0m0m keeps at least one of these in his pocket:

INDISPENSIBLE HEAVY DUTY BENDY WIRE
AgouraCharger found this on the ground when we were out caching together, and I’ve had it in my trunk ever since. It’s been my most useful extraction tool to date. In this photo, I’ve duct taped it to my hiking stick to create an extra long retrieval hook:

SPIFFY CUSTOMIZED STAMPER PEN
When I saw TerraGirl’s, I had to have this, too!

Want one? Corporate Connection is where I got ’em.

I think my favorite extraction tools, though, are other cachers who are willing/able to climb, reach, crawl or otherwise access things I would not be able to!

Sometimes no tool will help, as evidenced by this log posted by the Ventura Kids:

BIG ammo can

p.s. Several people at Geowoodstock requested more updates on my cats! Perhaps I’ll do that each month or so… This is my latest photo of Marzipan, now a big, beautiful smattering of color:

p.p.s. I’m in Vegas this week attending real estate investing seminars, and I’ll post about whatever adventures I manage to have in between classes in my next installment!
