Whenever I go caching I always take a bag of random things for swaps. One of rules of Geocaching is if you take something from a cache you need to replace it with something of equal or greater value. It’s a simple idea and can be quite fun rooting through a cache for something that takes your fancy and then swapping in something better. My Dad always used to tell me stories of swapping things at school, along the lines of the game Bigger, Better, and if you remember there was that one story where Kyle MacDonald attempted the same idea and eventually swapped a single red paperclip for a house!
So, when I’m caching I always keep my eye out for frogs. I’ve always liked frogs, personally I blame Kermit. It’s a good way to keep the game interesting though…and who knows maybe in a few years I can swap my frog collection for something bigger and better?
What do you collect when you’re out Geocaching? Has there ever been something really amazing that’s really stood out for you in a cache? Let me know, I’d love to hear what you’ve found or what you collect!
