Hmmm . . . seems as though most folks here say it's not worthwhile to create a cache with some half decent things in it. I suppose most folks here have been around quite a while and have seen and done a lot more than me . . . but once again I'd like to think that most folks are pretty decent and would either not trade an item if they had an item of lesser value or would place an item of equal value . . . personally for me I enjoy giving away stuff . . . after all you can't take "it" with you and so I think I'll still attempt one or two caches to start with stocked with good stuff . . . and see how it goes. Not a themed cache, but one where people know right from the get-go that if they go looking they should either be prepared to write "TNLN" or make a good trade.
My final thought . . . it still blows my mind that folks think nothing of buying a $150-$300 GPSr and get into geo-caching and then can't come up with anything better to trade or leave in a cache than something that is dirty, broken, etc. It seems to me that a ten dollar bill and a stop at a Dollar Store or Mardens even could easily fill up some caches . . . sure the items might not make anyone rich, but I tell ya, just finding some corn cob holders in their original packaging made my evening a few days ago . . . something useful and something that wasn't dirty, broken or totally useless.
