Only bad part is the screw - that wouldn't be allowed in most cases.

Yup... evil is the word here!! Nice 'ible.. The worst one I found was a hollowed out pine cone with a bison tube glued in it. The only thing that gave it away was the cone didn't look native to eastern Maine.

I found a cache like that here in Oregon. We looked for nearly a half hour, when I looked up and thought "That's a funny looking pinecone..."

This is pretty cool!

Thanks for deeming it "not bad" lol. As for making it more realistic, I have made one before with gills and kinda burnt the top and edges giving it a more deteriorated appearance. Also having grown my own own fungi I hope you don't mind me correcting you, entomology is the study of insects not fungi which is mycology.

As someone who enjoys identifies mushrooms, this would be extremely frustrating. As someone who enjoys geocaching, this is great!

Good job!

Much cheaper than the geocache.com containers and it is more original!
