RE: [gpsstash] Waterproof paper


http://www.riteintherain.com/

They make a whole variety of notebooks, notepads, paper blocks, etc. that
are made of waterproof paper. You can write on them in pen, pencil, marker,
crayone, blood, whatever.

The notepads are fairly cheap. They are used extensively by the military,
scientific researchers, etc.

It's pretty cool stuff, easier to find that priority mail envelopes.

Subject: [gpsstash] Waterproof paper


Hello. After having one of my caches flood, I did some thinking about
placement of the cache and the type of materials used in the cache
itself. I painstakingly scanned in the watersoaked log book for
future viewers. Obviously paper does not hold up to well in damp
locations. I found a source of material that is able to withstand
moister, temperature and physical handling. The material is Tyvek. I
found a good source for the material and I ran it through my printer
for the stash note, and made a log book out of it. Pencils do not
write well on one side, but pens do very nicely on both sides. I used
an ink jet printer to make a stash note. I placed these in the rain
for a day and crumbled it up. I triend to rip it without sucess. The
Tyvek holds up well under the conditions that I place them in.
Anyways I thought I would pass this information on. I was creative in
finding a source of Tyvek free of charge. This stuff recycles very
well so it is abundent in office recyclers. I used a USPS priority
shipping letter that I had laying around.
