The idea is to always "trade up" at caches, but unfortunately a few people think a stick of gum or a used, non-winning lottery ticket is a fair trade for a Mapping software CD.Originally Posted by covefarm
I like to see anything unusual in a cache - something not seen at every Wally World you go to. As for kid items, stick with ones that can hold up to some possible moisture as well as abuse from getting tossed around in the cache, and it never hurts to place them inside a ziplock bag.
But my main reson for posting is to remind you and any others to be careful when placing any items that have an odor to them - the silly putty and play-dough may fit into this category. Any smells might attract local critters. Obviously this is more of an issue in a Gladware container than in an ammo box. Also, be careful of anything with liquid in them, they can freeze and break open in winter, and can leak any time of year.
