+Ghost Crab Posted March 2, 2011 Share Posted March 2, 2011 OK, so I know that some seasoned cachers don't bother with swag any more. It has become all about the TBs, or just the fun of the hunt. And, I'm not suggesting that cheap-o kiddie toys aren't good swag - they are. My problem is finding a cache full of trash. One recent find contained: a plastic soda bottle cap a battered, bent business card a piece of (used) chewing gum in an old wrapper a crusty, broken latex balloon; an unwrapped band-aid; the cap to an ink pen (no pen); and a rock - not a fossil, crystal, or anything cool, but a rock just like the dozens of others on the ground all around the cache. Seriously?! I don't know if people are taking all of the "good" stuff and leaving trash behind, or what. There are still little kids (and kids at heart) out there who enjoy the "treasure hunt" and hope to find something interesting to take home as a reminder of their experience. I propose that we have a "spring clean-up" for our caches. Go visit a favorite local cache (or two or three...), take out the trash, and freshen it up with a handful of fun swag and maybe even a fresh log book and/or working pen if needed. Any takers?
