    What is the weirdest tool you've had to use to retrieve a cache?

    Monkeybusiness23 and I had to get a cache out of a hollowed out tree, but you had to go around a rather high part of the trunk. It was too low for us to get to, and to thin to try and reach through. Since it was our ONLY cache we had planned in Wisconsin, we HAD to get it. I ended up getting my jumper cables out of my trunk and reaching it that way.

    That was definitely the strangest tool we've ever used... but you forgot to mention we had to climb up about 1.5 feet BEFORE reaching in with the jumper cables!

    For other caches, I've carried a mirror-on-a-stick, and we've also used our snowbrush (with extendable handle) to reach caches. My husband, Mr. Monkey, has been known to climb a tree or two as well!

    No... just weird! Climbing trees is not quite typical for him!

    lol great idea on the jumper cables. i suppose the tool we use the most isnt that weird, it is our daughter we are always picking her up and having her reach the caches that we would otherwise have to climb up a bit to get. she loves it because she HAS to be the one to actually retrieve the cache Smile

    I've used my niece for that. Kids are great! They're also good excuses to be lurking around parks and random, odd places.

    we were at a park after hours in st. louis last night doing middle of the mitten knowing it would only take a second to grab as we parked a cop drove past and kept staring at us and all i was thinking was telling him "we were here with our daughter earlier and she dropped something" lol
