Here is what was inside:

Rott13 nickel
Rot13
Do you Rot13? Geocachers tend to like puzzles, codes, finding hidden things and all kinds of challenges. It's what makes us geocachers! Rot13 was actually developed by Julius Caesar (or maybe someone he knew) in the 1st century BC, and rumor has it he loved geocaching. It is a simple letter substitution that replaces a letter of the alphabet with the letter that is 13 letters after it. Have you ever wondered how the messages are coded on geocache hints? It's Rot13 of course.

"Water is the driving force of all nature"  -Leonardo da Vinci

Ask any Platypus. They’ll tell you that staying hydrated can mean the difference between an average day and an unforgettable day. That’s why we included the original collapsible, taste- and BPA-free hydration system in your April Cache Crate—for people living life to its fullest.

Nothing’s cleaner, greener*, or more versatile than a Platypus SoftBottle flexible bottle. Whether you’re out geocaching, working, running, catching a flight, or hitting the gym after work, the SoftBottle flexible bottle is your source for easy hydration.

Your body depends on water to survive. Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body needs water to work correctly. For example, your body uses water to maintain its temperature, remove waste, and lubricate joints. Water is needed for good health.

Symptoms of dehydration include the following:

  • Little or no urine, or urine that is darker than usual
  • Dry mouth
  • Sleepiness or fatigue
  • Extreme thirst
  • Headache
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness or lightheaded feeling
  • No tears when crying

Don’t wait until you notice symptoms of dehydration to take action. Actively prevent dehydration by drinking plenty of water.

Tips for staying hydrated

  • Keep a bottle of water with you during the day. Purchasing bottled water is expensive and creates plastic bottle waste. Carry a reusable water bottle and fill it from the tap instead.
  • If you don’t like the taste of plain water, try adding a slice of lemon or lime to your drink.
  • Be sure to drink water before, during, and after a workout.
  • When you’re feeling hungry, drink water. Thirst is often confused with hunger. True hunger will not be satisfied by drinking water. Drinking water may also contribute to a healthy weight-loss plan. Some research suggests that drinking water can help you feel full.
  • If you have trouble remembering to drink water, drink on a schedule. For example, drink water when you wake up; at breakfast, lunch, and dinner; and when you go to bed. Or drink a small glass of water at the beginning of each hour.
  • Drink water when you go to a restaurant. It will keep you hydrated, and it’s free!
