Want to plant a USB Dead Drop in the great outdoors?

USB Dead Drop
We all love the idea of going on a treasure hunt. The thrill of the next clue cropping up, with the long term goal of a greater prize on the horizon. That’s probably why geocaching has become such a big ordeal. It was a way for us to combine our love of technology with the great outdoors, and come home with a sense of fulfillment.

There is a similar version of this activity out there called a USB Dead Drop, but it was usually confined to urban locations. If you want to give it a try of your own, you’re going to need the proper materials. Any old USB will do, and all you need to do is strip its original casing, wrap it in plumbers tape, and use either cement or wood glue to secure it in place. As you won’t have any control over the elements, it’s best to put a cap over it to keep it safe. Obviously, there are a few more steps in between, and you can find the full how-to here. If you’d rather search for these rather then planting them, go here, but be mindful of viruses.
