Description   EN   

Tool of the Trade or TOTT for short
While Geocaching you may find that certain caches require certain tools in order to retrieve the cache or even the log sheet. There are a few tools every cacher should have like a GPSr and flashlight, but then there are also some more uncommon tools like tweezers or fishing line, We have visited some caches that require something you just wouldn't carry with you every where like a Ladder or Scuba Gear. So we decided to help out the new cachers and supply a list of items that one should always carry with them when geocaching, and quite a few carry these even when not geocaching for the sake of being able to geocache at a moments notice (FTF Hounds or Piranhas as they are called in the North Orange County Beach area)

General TOTT Kit Contents

  • GPSr (its hardder to cache with out one)
  • Extra Batteries for the GPSr
  • S.W.A.G. (S#!* We All Get)
  • Various Size Ziploc baggies
  • Various Size Log Sheets or paper
  • Flashlight
  • Extra Batteries for the flashlight
  • Telescoping Mirror (for looking in hard to see/reach places)
  • Telescoping Magnet (to retrieve mint tins from places we don't want to stick our hands)
  • Gloves (leather work gloves or Gardening gloves work best)
  • Fishing Line with non sharp hook
  • Paperclips (works great as a non sharp hook)
  • Fishing Line with magnet
  • 2 Pencils
  • 2 Pens
  • Tweezers
  • Super Glue
  • Duct Tape (or Duck Tape as some call it - prefer camo duct tape)

If you have a large vehicle you might consider

  • Step Ladder or Stool
  • Ladder
  • Long Sturdy but light weight pole

In order to do this cache you will need a new TOTT, you can build one following the instructions found here Building The TOTT and using this LED.

Your first clue can be found at the posted coordinates, but with out the TOTT you might not figure out the puzzle.

A lot of people seem to think every puzzle cache needs a geochecker, so you can check your answers for this puzzle on Geochecker.com even though you will never need to do this.
