We don’t mean to be cheesy but this geocache is truly a mouse-terpiece!

Geocache of the Week - La trappe à géocacheur

More than 500 geocachers have been lured by this cache, nestled in a park near Québec City, Canada. Cache owners Jackwest and OusKonNé & Cétyla designed the cache for the the Rendez-vous Québec 2013 Mega Event.

The real beauty of this cache is the meticulous detail in the design. Crafted after a Victor wooden mouse trap, it features a movable lever arm and a smooth wooden base. No mousetrap is complete without cheese — in this case, a “cheesy” ammo can!

Every winter, the cache owners take the cache out of the park to avoid the brisk Canadian winter and add another layer of protective varnish so the cache maintains its shiny exterior. Moving the cache is no easy task — they must be careful to avoid park visitors who may question why they’re carrying around a 6-foot mousetrap! Despite the hard work it takes to maintain, they say the logs and funny photos make it all worth it.

Sweet dreams are made of cheese
Who am I to disagree?

    On a similar theme, I did a cache last year that was disguised as a *really authentic looking* dead rat… A lot of work evidently went into it, with a semi-squished rubber body and real animal fur (prolly borrowed from the family dog:) glued on, such that you had to give it a really good look before you would touch it—and it was just dirty enough to be realistic….It was, of course, hidden in just the sort of a place where rats are likely to be found, near a drainpipe.

    And since it was dusk when I made the find, I sure did hesitate at first! Guess this sort of thing is what keeps it interesting…
