I don't think a geocacher will hesitate when finding a ammo can as finding
one is expected.  It is a non-cacher stumbling upon one that could be the
problem.  But like I said, it is simply my opinion and I've been told IL is
not planning on allowing them on state land.

I like Dollar General for containers.  They usually have promo packs where
you can get 3 or 4 for a couple bucks.  I've had some problems with some of
my containers, but the Dollar General promo ones have worked well with very
few problems.  The biggest problem is people putting too much stuff into
