All the Swag You'd Ever Need

(By the way, "swag" is what geocachers call the "goodies" in a geocache.  Sometimes you need to buy "swag" so that you'll have something to trade when you find a geocache.  You probably carry your own "swag" with you in a backpack - your travel bugs, geocoins, trade items, etc.)
 
I went to Groundspeak.com to browse the merchandise in their store (they carry official Geocaching.com stuff including travel bug tags) and was surprised to discover they now had a link to their "distributors" - so I clicked on it and wow, they have a nice long list of places to buy "swag" as well as t-shirts, geocache containers, etc.  Rather than searching all over the internet when you need something geocaching related, it sure is nice to have a list of (presumably) reputable companies.  The list is here.  They have a lot of international online stores too.
 
I was browsing around and found some cool stuff.  Check this out from the Geogearstore.com - it's what they call the "Expert Stocked Backpack":
 

 
  
Not only does it come with all that cool stuff, but you get your "team name" embroidered on the backpack!  What a great thing for a newbie, or as a gift idea!
  
And how evil is this, from CachingBox.com, their Pine Cone Cache:
  
 
  
So while we wait for the weather to warm up, we can still shop and plot our next hide....mwa ha ha ha!
  
Cache ya later!

You found some great swag to show! I haven't cached in NY yet, hopefully some day soon.

We are a Groundspeak distributor as well, along with carrying much more, and we're reputable. We also ship internationally (we are US based).

If you ever have any difficulty with a distributor please don't hesitate to let Groundspeak know -I'm sure they'd want to know.

Thanks and happy caching!
