I want this swap for those of us that would like some different swag to put in our geocaches. I tend to find tons of caches with McDonald's Happy meal toys and am ready to see new items to place in a cache.

In this swap you will send at least 5 different items that can be used as swag in a geocache. (please no happy meal toys from any fast food place). The items should be different in that there is only one of a specific item (i.e. 1 race car, 1 lego guy and so forth).

If you want to throw a trackable in the mix feel free. This will be a USA/ Canada swap but there will be an international one as well.

Please send me a PM if you have any questions.

Sorry I pushed back the send date because it was kindly pointed out to me that Monday is a postal holiday in the US.

Geocaching is like treasure hunting.

Someone will hide a water proof container (from a pill bottle size to an amo box size or anywhere in between size somewhere in between) and will note the longitude and latitude co-ordinates. These co-ordinates will be then posted on Geocaching.com which is a free website. Then you would go to that website and put the co-ordinates into you smart phone or into your handheld GPS and go find it. Inside each geocache is a log book and if it is big enough some "toys" or swag. You would sign the log book and if you want take a toy and leave a toy.

You leave the geocache where you found it but go online to the website and log that you found it. You can also look at Wikipedia's Geocaching page if you are still confused.

I'm stoked! Got my items together today! You need to check out the caches in my area (49286) and see the torture we go through with the crazy local cachers and their blue question mark caches! Our area is often referred to as Cachers Purgatory or The Land of the Blue Question Mark. LOL!
