So I've been doing geocaching lately and come of the bartenders and sheriffs have been kind enough to send me foreign coins to put in the caches. There have been a few caches that have been especially tricky to find. And I thought it would be good to leave a clue for the next cacher. An altoid tin is commonly used for micro-caches, so that might be the perfect thing to put a clue in. Anybody have a bunch of altoid tins they wanna get rid of?
I just took a look at www.altiods.com (tellingly, it's not www.altoids.co.uk). I must admit that I'd never heard of altoids until now. It may be, however that they are marketed here under a different brand name. The name "altoids" would probably sound a little too much like "haemorrhoids" to today's discerning consumer [ March 23, 2003: Message edited by: Frank Carver ]

No one in Australia has, apparently. The radio has been full of commericals about "the most popular hand cream in Australia". This is from their web site: "For thousands of years the native Aborigines used the liquid emu fat as a skin moisturizer, antiseptic and aid to relieve muscular aches and joint discomfort."
