CacheCrazy.Com: MY GEOBAG

Thursday, November 28, 2013



Grab a cup of coffee, or tea, sit back and let's look into my Geobag.

The story you are about to read is fictitious. The names have not been changed because it really doesn’t matter if I change the names or not. Besides, there may not be any names in the story anyway. Also, no animals or fish were harmed during the writing of this article. Well except for that fish sandwich I had; sorry Charlie.

The year is sometime in the future, like twenty thousand twelve. Hmm, for some reason that sounds familiar. Anyway, I decided to go through my geobag and make sure I have what I need in there. You know, in case I get abducted by aliens or something (get lost).

Okay, inside of the geobag I have: rope; check, extra baggies; check, lighter; check, matches; check (you can never be too sure), TBs and Geocoins; check, paper towels; check, signature items; check, SWAG; check, GPSr; check, extra batteries; check, camera; check, knife; check, CITO bags; check, tweezers; check, bug spray; check, first aid kit; check, flashlight; check, extra pen; check, extra log book; check, water bottle; check, more baggies; check, kitchen sink… you get what I mean.

                        GPSr, flashlight, Sig items, SWAG

                          More SWAG, extra pen

                       Rope, baggies, CITO bags

                        My Signature item, TB, First aid kit
                                    Emergency bag, Log book

Hey, what are these last two items I have here? One is round and the other is sort of round and they both have either letters, and or numbers on them. Hmm, I’d better think on this one.

Oh, right, I remember now. The one is my Dragon Spinner Geocoin for decoding hints in the field. (You do decode hints in the field don’t you, or do you cheat and hit the decode button on the cache page?) (Don’t make me say shame on you!)  I love this little gadget. It is so cool. Have you ever used one? Here is a picture of it.

When you put a letter in the top notch you then read the bottom notch, which then gives you the letter you’re looking for. No more carrying around a printed off card. Besides, it is just a cool looking Trackable Geocoin anyway.  

Okay, so I’m wondering what this last item is? Here, let me clear the dust off of it first. There, I think I can open it now. S Q U E A K ….. Come on, I’ve almost got it open. Come on; just a little more. Okay!  Wow! This is so cool. Now let me see, where is the button to turn it on? Oh, it doesn’t have a button. So then where do the batteries go? What do you mean it doesn’t take batteries? Oh, duh, it’s always on.  I think I know what it is, but I’d better Google it first just to be sure. Oh, darn. I can’t get Google to work. Please tune in next week after I get Google working and I'll finish the story.  



Funny you posted this because I was just going through my bag yesterday and have a small list of needs. It's fun to set up your geobag and it pays while your in the field to be prepared. Great article and it's good to have you back!
