We use expanding foam for all of our difficult up the clack cache containers.
Just be careful and don't use TOO much...oh and it sticks like S%$T to a blanket...lol

This publishing a cache thing is tougher than I thought! I think I made the same date error as cathylmorgan. :oops: [Nope, I checked and hadn't figured out how to publish yet. Of course allergy tarnation hit while I was working on it so I kinda left the computer and sulked on the couch instead. :stabby]

For the test tube up the frog - I used S6000 - a crafting glue. I was worried the expanding foam would leak out the knots. :? Figured I'd toss the first two in the wash a few times to see how well the glue holds up, both were made with different materials and glue points. The poor frogs, in with the nappies! May as well test my new log sheets and see how waterproof the test tubes really are!

One boy frog and one girl frog.
Just like the two gnomes, they will be added to the list of smilies you can use on the site and in your logs.
15x15 and non-animated preferred.
So few pixels

Thought I should share this with people. When frogs go bad.

I've seen plenty at garden centres/nurseries. Many aren't cache-friendly though. Picked up one that was a money box but was there with the garden ornaments!

I bought one from ebay, he is very cute so am happy BUT he has no hole in bottom for a log container. There are gaps in his arms/legs where I can attach a bison tube, any advice on what to attach with? Would a cable tie do the job?

My Bunnings has nothing in the froggy department. In fact, it doesn't even have a Frog Department :( A lot of the frogs I've seen lately are very breakable so it's not easy to find something more durable. But luckily I've finally found a contender for this year's race (and when are we getting the froggy icons?) :gnomette

I tried making a frog icon and it turned out looking like a deformed Cthulhu and nothing like something cool such as this. :oops:

Cable ties a fine.
We use them on our movables and haven't had a problem with them.
We also use the chains from the TB's.

Hmm, my local bunnings also lacks a frog department. Sad.
I'm going to have to be at one of the other bunnings today, to help out at a dreaded sausage sizzle, so ...i'm sure to checkout their frogs as well?

To the ACT region cachers, check out magnet mart. They seriously DO have a frog department... (at least an isle! wow!)
