Well it’s all official now. The time capsule I hid last year with Moo is now a pukka registered tinful of history. Question is will it be found beforehand? I think it’s in a pretty secure location. Only accidental discovery by decorators or builders will surely get that, unless the entire buildings knocked down.
Inspired by this id really love to do three more. One for me, Vic n the kids and another especially for our as yet unborn baby.
The biggest challenge is keeping it a secret from all those not involved. I wonder whom the lucky person who finds it will be? Especially with me resigning this year and us relocating to Cambeltown. Good luck and whomever you are!
I enjoy geocaching but I compiled and hid my first ever time capsule today. It’s been hidden within the fabrication of a building so with any luck won’t be discovered unless severe renovation work is carried out in the area. Written upon it twice is the request it isn’t open until 2045. I should be long gone by then, at least in the retirement sense. It’s only a small tin box about the size of them petty cash boxes you can get.
It already look aged hehe. Within it is a few trading card packs, some photos of the work area, snips from an Argos catalogue showing what our technology looks like here in 2016, and a memory stick containing more photos and video clips from over the past couple of years. It’s all sealed up airtight and wrapped in a cloth to stop too much dust settling on it. Really keen to do a couple more elsewhere. We shall see…
I’ve been thinking about making a couple of time capsules, one of which would be buried. I’ve read into it a bit online and seen a few YouTube videos. I am wondering if sealing the capsule in its own concrete box would preserve it for hundreds of years longer than normal? Would it be waterproof? Or airtight? Or would it make no difference at all other than harder for people to open? If anybody reads this and knows the answer feel free to get in touch replying here. 😃
