Cache No. 16 – So how big is a Nano ?

June 11th 2009 – EGNM – Holding Point Echo One GC1BGJX – Cache #16
Holding Point Echo One is at an Airport viewing car park next to a graveyard, I had gone there a couple of days before and not been able to find the cache… even though from the hint I knew just where it was to within a couple of feet.
So hoping for further hints which would either tell me I was looking in the wrong place (or the right place and the cache had gone) I came back and checked the past logs… and found a picture of the cache… a nano cache.

For those of you who don’t know what a nano cache it’s about the size of the copper coloured top of an AA size duracell battery. It’s magnetic and unscrews in half to hold a rolled up piece of paper about 6 or 7 mm high.
When I knew what I was looking for it was straightforward to go back and find it exactly where I had looked before, but now knowing what I was looking for I recognized the cache container for what it was.
