SWAG Bag Give Away! *CONTEST CLOSED*

CONTEST CLOSED

SWAG bag give away!

I'm having a little blog contest! I hope you will participate! It may not seem like an AWESOME blog give away, but if you are a geocacher I think you will appreciate the prize. When you geocache you find containers and swap swag items. This is a bag containing those items to swap. The bag could even be considered swag (I don't know a male that would want to keep it, hah). I however, keep a bag just like this in my pack while out geocaching so I have easy access to trade items. I hate when I have to go digging in my bag! This SWAG bag might even contain enough items to start your own cache, perhaps your first?

Whatever you decide to do with this bag is up to you! All you have to do is win! (you don't even have to be a geocacher or blogger to enter, your kids/students/pets may love all the trinkets!)

Of course, to win you have to enter. Here's how:

To enter your name in the drawing you MUST:

*Leave a comment to this post telling me what you would do with this SWAG bag. Yes it is that simple!

To earn extra entries in the drawing you can do any or all of the following:
Please be sure to leave a separate comment for each of these the entries to count.

To make it easy you can use the following if you would like:

*Subscribe to this blog, and tell me what method of subscribing you chose. If you are already a subscriber please tell me the method of subscribing you use - and you will earn this extra entry as well.

*Blog about this contest on your blog! You must link back to my blog and mention a contest in the post.

Please be sure to leave a separate comment for each of the entries to count. (I will be printing out the comments, cutting them apart and drawing out of a hat)

  1. I would use the swag bag to start a cache for my four year old son. I am trying to get him more interested in caching.

  13. I think I would ask my wife to embroider your URL of your blog on it, and then I'd leave it in a cache. Maybe I'd leave the bag as a FTF prize in an ammo can hide...can't decide yet, does that still count?

  16. Nice contest, great idea, thanks for starting one.

  17. Great way to get some buzz for your blog!

    I would use the swag bag to stock one of our caches that's a bit low. Also, have plans for a new one that I can use the swag for.

  18. My husband and I went out on our first cache hunt just last weekend! It's something we both think we will enjoy doing, and we'll take along our 3 yr old grandson to enjoy the outdoors with us. This would be a great prize to win - I actually wasn't sure what to bring with me. Thanks for all the geocaching info - I'll be back often.

  20. I confess that first I would let my son pick out a couple of items that he wanted and then I would use the rest for possible trade items or starting my own geocaches.

  23. Will you send to Germany?

    If so, I would leave most of the swag in caches. The pencils will go into new ones as a logging device.
    But the insects will be painted with coordinates and hidden as stations of a multi cache, I'm currently planning.

    What a lovely idea to run a contest!
    I really enjoy your blog and have set a bookmark. I regularly check the blogs I have bookmarked.

  24. I don't this prize. I think it's a great idea tho. And I was in the neighborhood so I thought I'd say hi.

  25. Thanks for the contest!

    I'd plant a geocache here on Prince Edward Island, in Canada.

    I used to geocache a lot, but have been so busy this year that I haven't done any caches in over a year.

    Nice blog. Great photos! This is my first time here and I'll be back.

  26. Me me me!!!

    I would use it when we travel to hold little things that never have a spot of their own.

  27. Pssst. I have an award for you on my blog. :)

  28. I would use that swag bag to replace my current swag bag; a Ziploc freezer bag that we have had since day one of caching. It has camo-duct tape over all the holes so the swag doesn't fall out and has been rooted through by my daughter on 171 cache hunts. It also doesn't seal properly anymore but I am so sentimental about it and feel bad for creating more moop (Matter out of Place) in the world. If I did win this awesomely fabulous swag bag and contents, I would mount my current old ziploc bag with a label and hang it in a prominent place in my home for all to behold. I would even twitpic a photo of this for the world to see. I am off to re-tweet this! :)

    I would probably keep one of the monkeys cause I think they are super cute. The rest I would use as our swag bag as we cached on our vacation this summer.
