Last GeoWoodstock IX Swag

It seems a long time since July 2011 and GeoWoodstock IX. After the Mega event closed, we purchased the last remaining swag to help close the books. We figured since we travel so much we could spread the items around in caches. The last pathtag went away recently somewhere in a cache in Washington, northeast of Spokane. We left the last trackable bear at Camels Prairie when we visited. It is most likely still there waiting at Idaho's oldest cache. You will need to do some physical work to get there, but the view is awesome (and it is a free unactivated trackable).

I think we left trackables and pathtags in twenty-two different states as we spread these around. Besides our three most visited states (OH-PA-NY), we also left items in a couple additional Great Lake states (MI and IN), New England (ME, NH, and VT), along my path to North Carolina (WV and VA), on our journey to GA (KY, TN, and SC), in the southwest (AZ and CA) and in the northwest (WA-MN-ID). We were lucky to have visited three Canadian Providences (Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia). We've also left NEOGEO pathtags at most of these locations.

We'll have to decide what we want to leave in caches next. I'm one of those cachers who still believe in trading and leaving stuff in caches. It makes the adventure more complete. Maybe it's time for our own pathtag to finally be made.

Although I think the design would look good in a trackable wooden coin too....
