First Wholesale Item Finally Posted

I finally had the time to put together and photograph our very first wholesale item.  You can now buy a huge 72-pack of our best-selling Bison Tubes.  These containers can serve many purposes, but they mainly find their places in the world as small Geocaching containers.  There are six colors, a dozen of each.  And the price is right - 15% off of our regular price if you were to buy them one at-a-time.

Check back soon for more Wholesale items.

So Many Trackables, So Little Time

I was just adding some new items to the inventory (Micro 10 Year Anniversary Geocoin For Geocaching, 10 Years Of Geocaching Sticker) when it occurred to me that there are a LOT of trackable items in the game of Geocaching.  We have more than 40 different coins, hats, stickers, and magnets that can be tracked on  That's astounding! So, if you find yourself with nothing to do, surf on by and take a look. You just might find something of interest.  Heck, do it even if you DO have things to do.  In fact, move it to the top of your "to do" list.

Inventory Update

Late last week, I placed five different orders to our various suppliers.  Shipments are now en route from all over the country to help replenish the shelves.  We have lots of stock coming in, so be sure to check back at the end of the week.  There are at least eight new products coming in.  This is very exciting for the Geocaching community - nice to keep it fresh.  Lots of trackable items.

We are also preparing a 'wholesale' section of the store.  Ever wanted to buy supplies for your local Geocaching group? Maybe want to try your hand at selling on eBay?  This will be the place to get your stock.  Check back soon.

Too Much Snow To Geocache?

I'm heading out toward Chester County (PA) tomorrow for a beekeeping class. Thought it might be a good opportunity to check the immediate area for any Geocaches.  However, looking out my window, I know that there is still better than a foot of packed snow/ice covering just about every square inch of ground that hasn't been attended to by a shovel or plow. So, do I get my hopes up and go prepared with the GPSr loaded up with coordinates or just give in to the fact that I'll probably have to wait a few more months for 1) the snow to melt and 2) all of the resulting mud to dry up?

I was a Boy Scout, so I guess I'd better go prepared.  If I don't come back, you know where to look.

Fear Factor Live II Geocaching Event Planning

The other night I attended the first planning session for the second annual Fear Factor Live event.  Last year, we were fortunate enough to be there with a table of merchandise and, boy, business was booming.  Looks like the event this year will be on Sunday, September 5th, 2010 somewhere in York County, Pennsylvania.  The anticipated attendance is around 350!  We're gonna need a bigger boat - or at least a location with a larger pavilion.

I've been sworn to secrecy so I cannot divulge any of the events being planned, but I assure you, I won't be partaking in any of them (someone's got to mind the store...)  Check out the fun last year on the DVD and see how a 14-year-old girl beat out the entire crowd of 200+!

Greatest Earbuds Ever

I've been using these (a predecessor actually) for about three years.  They've held up beautifully and they are hands-down the best sounding earbuds I've ever used.  So much so that I just ordered the current version for my wife.  They come with three different size cushions to fit in just about any adult ear and the sound it fantastic - sounds like it's right in the middle of your skull.  ;-)  Give 'em a shot, you won't be sorry.

First Posting!

Well, it's high time South Mountain Traders started playing with this 'new' technology.  I mean, come on, we're already walking around in the woods with a small electronic receiver that is computing signals from up to a dozen satellites.  We are technology savvy...

So, be sure to stop back every now and then to see what it is we've been ranting and raving about.  We promise to keep it family-friendly.
