I pick up the brass casings after target practice. For some reason, I have these delusions that someday I'll spend the money on the equipment and the time to reload the casings, or that I will accumulate enough of them at some point to make it worthwhile to recycle them for money. Ha! Never gonna happen. So I used some of them, along with paracord, to make little flexible bracelets to put into geocaches. I made five of them and then ran out of the heavy-gauge wire I used to make them.
Here are the geocaches where they were placed:
#1 of 5: Dropped in GCZ87K on 8/13/2023
#2 of 5: Dropped in GC90 (the first and oldest cache in Mississippi) on 9/20/2023
#3 of 5: Dropped in GC45XHJ on 9/25/2023
#4 of 5: Dropped in GC8GAJ0 on 1/29/2024
#5 of 5: Pending
Have you picked one of these up? Let me know in the comments. I especially want to know if they survived the harsh conditions inside a cache, so that I can figure out improvements in the future.
