Most caches are pill containers of various sizes. If the coordinates lead you to a telephone pole, fence post, or a sign of some kind more than likely that will be what you find there. If it leads you to a guard rail it should be magnetic. DO NOT MOVE THESE. However, for numerous reasons, sometimes the pill container goes missing. If after an extensive search you discover no container you may place one in its place. Please email this info to the owner on cache page.
Thanks, and have fun on your quest.
