Show Notes for Episode 028 of the GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast:
GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Episode 028 - Outdoors Geocaching Clothing and Equipment Wishlist

Think of tonight’s episode as if you were sitting in your comfy chair at home and paging through one of your favorite outdoors magazines. Like most people something catches your eye and you wonder if it is an item that you really want or better yet really need so you evaluate your options of which to sometime soon purchase or maybe just put on your wish list for the holidays. This is the goal for tonight as we thumb through HeadHardHat and Debaere’s Outdoors Geocaching Clothing and Equipment Catalog..  Now keep in mind that some of the items we are going to discuss is definitely on the pricey side but then again that is what wish lists are for. After the show we will be displaying all the information discussed including prices and links to where you can get more information on HeadHardHat’s Obsessed Blog. Feel free to continue your perusing to your hearts content.

Special note - HHH randomly chose these items from several outlets and the items selected are based on the 4.5 or 5 star ratings provided at the time. No preference to a particular store chain was done intentionally.
