Included in the crate are a telescoping magnet, tweezers, mini screw drivers, and a compass. Also, included is a booklet that has keywords used in geocaching. You will also need a free Geocaching.com user account. You will be able to find lots of useful geocaching information on that site as well.
LEARN TO USE A GPS RECIEVER
You will learn how to use a GPS unit so you can go to the exact coordinates of the geocache you are searching for.
You can also use a GPS-enabled mobile device (smartphone) with a Geocaching App downloaded to it if you are unable to get a GPS unit.
MAKE A TRADE ITEM
You will need to make a small item to go in the geocache.
Use the clear stones in the crate to create unique items to leave for trade.
