A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook and sometimes a pen or pencil.
The geocacher signs the log with their established code name and dates it, in order to prove that they found the cache.
After signing the log, the cache must be placed back exactly where the person found it. Larger containers such as plastic storage containers (Tupperware or similar) or ammunition boxes can also contain items for trading, such as toys or trinkets, usually of more sentimental worth than financial
WATCH OUT FOR MUGGLES:
Many cache placers ask for you to use "stealth" and "caution" when searching for their cache in order to avoid interaction with muggles. Muggles are the reason the overwhelming majority of caches go missing or are damaged.
So be careful when you discover your cache and leave it exactly as you find it so that Muggles don't discover it and spoil it for everyone.
It's best to not be observed, or volunteer much about what you are doing if busted. If you are caught red handed, then some explanation might be necessary, especially if it is the authorities.
