GCPC EPISODE 420 – Distinguishing A Geocache Size, Terrain and Difficulty

This week’s discussion is confirming to the best of our abilities what is the best way to correctly distinguish what a geocache’s size, terrain and difficulty should be.

Containers Explained


micro: Less than 100ml. Examples: a 35 mm film canister or smaller, typically containing only a logbook or a logsheet. A nano cache is a common sub-type of a micro cache that is less than 10ml and can only hold a small logsheet.

small: 100ml or larger, but less than 1L. Example: A sandwich-sized plastic container or similar. Holds only a small logbook and small items.

regular: 1L or larger, but less than 20L. Examples: a plastic container or ammo can about the size of a shoebox.

large: 20L or larger. Example: A large bucket.e.g. 5-gallon bucket (about 20 liters)

other: See the cache description for information. Unusual geocache containers that just don’t fit into other categories.
