GeoSnippits Tutorial Video: Make Your Own GeoCache with PVC Pipe

One of my first posts on this blog was an article about how to make your own clever Geocache by using PVC pipe. I received many nice compliments about it so I decided it was time to make the tutorial into a full blown GeoSnippits video.

This two parter shows you step by step instructions on how to make a cache in a cache which looks like a water or air drainpipe.

If you want a quick list of what you will need so you can follow along, use this:

PVC Drainpipe Geocache:

1 1.5" PVC pipe (8" - 12" long works best)
1 1.5" PVC elbow joint
1 1.5" Test Cap
Epoxy or other strong glue (don't use Krazy Glue)

1 35mm film container
2 to 5 1" circular magnets
Heavy Duty Velcro
