Geocaching GPS: Great Personal Stories of Geocaching Firsts.

This book brings you the second annual anthology of heart-warming stories dedicated to geocaching. I invite you to enjoy 50 all-new geocaching stories about the many firsts experienced by geocachers all over the world.

Stories of Travel…
Imagine holding your first-ever event… in a foreign country! Or having close encounters with exotic wildlife, fascinating locations, and experiencing the culture from the inside out.

Stories of Creatures…
From spiders to cows, there are great tales of the first run-ins with creepy crawlies great and small.

Stories of Extremes…
Experience the extremes that geocaching has to offer including 5/5 caches, canoe trips, adventures with would-be robbers, and finding geocaches in some of the most harrowing locations.

The stories are as varied as the authors who wrote them – but they all have one thing in common: they’re all stories of geocaching firsts!

CamJam® Adjustable Micro Bungee:

Screen Shot 2017-03-24 at 1.09.18 PM

Lightweight, easy to use, and designed to lock securely into place with a simple pull of its attached bungee cord, the CamJam Adjustable Micro Bungee makes securing smaller bundles a literal cinch. Made of sturdy, durable plastic, its carabiner clips feature a stainless steel gate on one end and a rotating ridged cam mechanism on the other. Both ends of the stretchable, reflective 14" bungee cord are capped to keep them securely attached to the CamJams on either end. Loop the bungee cord around the load you're bundling then pull the ends of the cord through the cam to adjust to the desired tension. Or, clip the carabiner clips to two fixed points, and adjust desired tension to secure your item. Let go and it locks into place and stays that way, until you release it by pulling the bungee upward out of the cam, or by rotating the cam open. Excellent for securing small loads to a backpack or bike rack, hanging a tarp, or bundling small gear.

A Folding Pocket Guide to Purposeful Knots

Fifty effective knots that can be used for a variety of purposes are highlighted. Knots is a great resource of portable information and is ideal for field use by both novices and experts. Made in the USA.
