In the 9 months of my geocaching experience, I have found some frustration in rolling micro logs. I think I've found a solution.

1. Get a long bobby pin.
2. Remove plastic tips.
3. Straighten bent tip.
4. Take into the field to roll logsheets.

I pray this tip helps others.

God bless,
Oma S

Have you tried hair pins rather than bobby pins?

I was looking to provided tweezers (log removers) in caches on my icc trail when my wife suggested hair pins. Very inexpensive. Last weekend I went to a beauty supply place and they had lots of bobby pins and hair pins. After experimenting the boxes marked hair pins seemed to work best in my trial.

All good ideas, they also sell ready-made ones of different types.

For less than $10, I picked up a Can of Plasti Dip, a bag of wooden spools and some cotter pins. I thread the spool with the pin and then put a dab of glue to hold it. Then I dip the end in the Plasti Dip. I've made over 50 to give away as FTF gifts or to other cachers. I still have over a half of can of Plasti Dip.

Does this really save time, or just the super annoyance of having to do it?

I have one of the micro cache rollers and it is very nice when I have a completely unrolled log. It is faster and gets a log perfect size. Note while that is true I often don't get it out if my bag so it can't be that big a difference or I would use it all the time.

I do use it when I am rolling lots of them as I prep them for hidding and maintenance
