GCPC EPISODE 439 – Geocaching Collectables – What is your geocaching collection like?

What items do you like to find in a geocache?
Do you trade swag?
What types of items do you collect?
Most unusual/expensive item found and how did you trade for it?
Examples
geocoins
pathtags
patches
pins
homemade
custom/signature items

HHH:
Likes anything shiney
Likes wooden nickels when found
Likes the unusual when found – Science Museum – Shark Tooth
Most unusual was a FTF gift of a Navy Sailor’s ship coin and medals.

SB:
patches on my caching bag
small group of pathtags
big group of coins
CS:

TAZ:
I love to find geocoins in caches
Travelbugs too.
Signature items of all kinds: Pathtags, Bottlecaps, Wooden Nickels, Geocaching business cards, …
Most unusual was probably a stick of chewing gum
I usually don’t swap for swag and only grab trackables and personal items which I don’t treat as swag.
That said, I keep some random swag items in my bag that one day could become attached to a TB, and I’ll swap them out.

Interactive maps & statistics for geocaching travelbugs, geocoins and all your trackable items…

GCPC EPISODE 437 – Stolen Geocaches – Why?

HHH:
The geotrash zinger zapper shows up every few years
Can’t understand the need to steal ammo box geocaches – saving for the zombie apocalypse?
Is the only replacement the micro? Then what?
Chaining down ammo boxes?

SB:
Its a shame and then we all wonder why there are no ammos out there. Was not muggled, bad apple cachers.
off topic. When checking on one, noticed that a high profile couple from WI replaced instead of logging a DNF. No wonder high numbers, they NEVER dnf a cache. Don’t just drop!

CS:

TAZ:
I know this past year in the Houston Area that Ammo can’s seemed to be coming up missing. I personally DNF’d several that turned out to be stolen ammo can’s. One was during international CITO day – luckily the cache owner was at the CITO.
If they’re in areas that are more publicly accessible, I’ve cabled the Ammo cans I’ve put out and used crimp connectors to make them more permanent. The one I didn’t do this to went floating down the Brazos River last May (only a few feet from cresting the levee)
Talking to folks at events, it seems that even cabled Ammo Cans were susceptible. People had been using bolt/wire cutters to cut the tethers and in one case snapped the small tree to get the Ammo can. Really people, go to a frigging Army Surplus store already.

Listener Insights:

Timothy – They want to hide them there self. This happened up here in NY. We finally got the person.

Debra – I have an ammo can out but it is right across the road from my house so maybe that will be a deterrent
