We are excited to introduce our second Hero Crate Unboxing here on the blog! In case you have never heard of the HERO Crate, it is a bigger Cache Crate that ships every three months (March, June, September and December) on or near each Equinox and Solstice - for $150/quarter.
Each season we will ship top-quality high-value gear and inspiration for geocaching in the Hero Crate. This will include cool stuff to help you find and retrieve challenging caches, hide favorite worthy caches, and keep comfortable on the hunt.
Spring 2017 items:

When you need a little extra reach and a powerful grab! Perfect for a CITO event when you are cleaning up the trail or when you find a cache container just out of reach. This hand trigger grabber is made to pick up all kinds of items, but also folds up to go in your geocaching pack!
Ultimate Trackable Lanyard: Retail value: $29.95
We don’t call this the Ultimate Lanyard for nothing. GeoKnots took all the things that geocachers need in a lanyard, and made it even better. You won’t have to trust your expensive GPS, smart phones, cameras, and other electronic gear to a flimsy strap any longer. Each Ultimate Lanyard is proudly made by geocachers, for geocachers from super-strong U.S.-made survival paracord. Plus - it's trackable!
Each Ultimate Lanyard system includes:
- Fully adjustable length to comfortably fit any geocacher.
- Two interchangeable, quick-disconnect attachment ends for your GPS or other equipment (3″ long and 6″ long) for additional flexibility.
- Safety breakaway feature with sliding hand-tied ranger knots.
- Built-in emergency whistle on each quick-disconnect attachment.
- Hardware attachment pack for your electronics — a sturdy metal snap hook, two mini quick-disconnect cables, and two mini split rings.
Geocaching Stencil: Retail $9.95
This re-usable stencil is a great way to add a notification to your geocache. All you need is a can of spray paint to customize your geocache. The surface coating prevents runs and smears common with most plastic stencils. Dimensions: 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheet.
