You are looking for the ultimate swag exchange! Upon finding this location off the beaten path, ideas for a themed cache location came springing into our minds. We decided on Swag City where you can not only leave your swag in the normal cache container as usual OR you can display your swag as we've begun to do on the branches. The normal rules apply though...if you take something, you must leave something of equal or greater value. The container (if you can find it!) does not have a pen/pencil so BYOP and have fun!
