Camouflage is defined as a device or stratagem for concealment or deceit.  I like those hides that use camouflage so that they can be hidden in plain sight.  I have build a cache that I hope will work in that way.  In converted an old birdhouse into an illuminated cache hide.  I placed a solar powered patio light in the top of the cache.  The light only comes on at night.  During the day the cache is supposed to look like a birdhouse.  I originally had a newer piece of wood supporting the birdhouse but this was a giveaway to more experienced geocachers.  I have since used an aged piece of wood to support the cache.

Beacon Pond (spoiler)

So far the cache has been rated favourably on Rate This Cache.


I have been writing the cachemania blog since 2008. I'm interested in the development of geocaching and the many ways that people play the game.
