I need 2 Berty tube caps.  Can some Gatorade-drinkin' person bring some to the Park n' Gab for me?  

 

Thanks.

I've heard that Nesquik chocolate milk caps work well, and I know that Honest Ade caps and most Vitamin Water bottle caps work too.  I'd bring you some, Arlene, but I'm not coming up there.

"Saturday, after BB's Block Party Event, I went looking for Gatorade bottle caps and only found six or seven of them at a new subdivision here in Deer Park where they had 15-18 new home under construction.    I walked around the open slabs and at/thru the trash the workers left after their lunch.  There were no workers after four o'clock.  The homes just had the slab poured or with only the 2x4 framing. 

 

I just took a Berty tube with me to trial fit as I found a discarded bottle.  I found caps from Gatorade, Powerade, Minute Maid bottles, Bordens pint bottles, Oak Farms pint bottles, Tampico, and a white one gallon orange drink bottle.  In addition, I found an orange, green, yellow, red, white, and blue caps with no name that works on those Berty tubes."

I found that the 20 oz. vitamin water bottles work. They are Kroger brand and were on sale 2 for $1.00

I have also found that the 1 quart juice bottle caps will fit the Bertie tubes. He caps from Dole, Welch's and Wal-Mart's juices.

Do the 20oz gatorade bottle caps work? I grabbed about 30 tonight at a church youth event.

The extra large Gatorade bottles have a larger opening and won't work, but it appears the Berty Tube size is used on a lot of different containers.

The 32 oz Gatorade tops are to large like BB stated. The 32 and 20 oz powerade tops are the same size and fit fine.

What's a Berty tube? Is it a custom designed cache tube manufactured by Baytown Bert?

Berty tubes are an exclusive short fat preform named after a nefarious geocacher from Baytown who is also short and fat.

First off, thank you BB for the BBTs given to Dhaulghiri for R5 which we have received and plan on using quickly.  I must agree they are a bit weird to handle and that I would really like to know the story behind them.  Where do they come from?  Why no lids?  Why just BB has them?
