Just the thread to beat my own drum. The Big Kahuna http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... e165&log=y is a used ammo container. It once contained four bombs or some sort. It is big but maybe not this big.

Although it is big enough to be a dinning table.

Errrr..... wouldn't that be just a bit too tempting - if you can leave a child inside a cache? :-) I don't think you're supposed to use children as swaps. Mind you, I wouldn't mind finding a useful sort of one. The sort that can climb trees, and go down small holes, and such. I could trade a dog....

We had a great time having dinner there!

Anja thought I was crazy when I suggested it, but having seen it when Freddo was given it, I thought why not, we needed to have dinner anyway!

Well i can tell that Poineers Chair was a 27 Litre Bucket & Peninsular Getaway. Was a 10 Litre Bucket i know this because i have the bucket sitting in my back yard.

The Biggest i have seen would have to be one of my caches. It is about a 30-40 odd Litre screw top container it is quite funny to read some of the logs & hear some of the stoires from cachers that recon they nearly fell into the cache trying to reach the bottom of the container.

But the biggest container i have found would have to be Cachers Know Cachers. By Team Crackers.

Yep. Largest by far. The outer container is roughly 120 liter I think. =D>

Barrle of geomonkeys is a 60Litre open to drum, with lots of goodies in it.
its been moved and replaced several times in its lifetime.
its my biggest cache placemnet and one of the longest "live" caches on my hide list.
( live= not muggled or archived since original placement)

I have had something in mind like this for the next mobile cache race.
Once you pick up my 16yo you have to feed him until the next cacher finds him.

GCA tattoo and number on his butt.

Err.. I'm not sure a 16 year old was what I had in mind. Haven't you got a nice, teachable 10 year old?

I don't think I can afford to feed a 16 year old indefinitely. Besides, one 16 year old would fill up a cache on his/her own.
