That mirror thingie, a retractable magnet thing and a mess of GPSr units. Many containers of assorted types. The rest of our arsenal we had as a result of HBC (hobbies before caching).

What's with all the people wearing no pants while caching? I hope it's only a summer thing or you're problems will be more that ticks.

Several of the aforementioned tools; a PalmTX, which is now retired in favor of an iPod Touch and Geosphere App (we haven't gone the smartphone route....yet); the usual rubber boots and other outdoor clothing stuff; many rolls of camo duct tape and cans of camo spray paint; other assorted gear such as headlamps and such were from camping and other noncaching pursuits.

A bulk purchase of Duct Tape, too, for taping up our pant legs to our boots when going into the worst places during the worst times. Still need to get a tick-flicker, though. wink
