I was wondering what other people consider a magnetic key holder.

Looks like we voted with everyone else, but I have to add.....around here, we're seeing matchstick holders listed as 'small.'

If you're frickin' big then it's a fricken' micro.

I have a commercially produced magnetic key holder that measures 4"X2"X5/8". It can easily hold a log, pencil and small item. I would say that it's closer to a small than a micro yet I would list it as a micro just as I would a matchstick container. I have also found the smaller version you most likely reference.

Micro. I consider a small container to be like a soup base container. Anything smaller is a micro.

If a travel bug does not fit in it, then it is a Micro.

Then my key holder is a small by that definition.

I want to find the caches that can hold THOSE TBs. LOL Heck, I'd like to find any caches that can hold any TB. There are a couple hotels in the area I'll stop at if it's just been too long, but it's more fun to take them somewhere to find a cache with us. Getting harder to do that all the time, though.

I've heard the sled TB may or may not still be at the Appleton Pizza King from a few months ago.

Trekkin' owns a giant fish lure TB that goes to events....when and if we remember, which we usually don't. My binoculars used to have a trackable attached, but it came loose and I pulled it for safekeeping. We just aren't all that into the whole trackable thing. We like to move those we find, but it's getting harder all the time to find caches where we feel comfortable (and that are large enough) to leave them. Revisiting the local hotels isn't really our game, either, though we have done that if we're passing by and have some that just need to move.
