Where in Houston can you buy travel bugs?

Recommended Posts

I know that you can buy official GC.COM Travel Bug tags at REI, but is there another store in town? Sometimes I don't want to wait for someone online to ship it to me.

Well, TravelingGeek has the best deal in town.... especially since I just got back from REI on Westheimer.   According to Steve (SACruz) the geocacher who owns the cache in front of the store, REI no longer carries Groundspeak items because Groundspeak wouldn't allow REI to markup the price.  In other words, if GC sold the item to REI for $2.50, they expected REI to sell it for $2.50.   Uuuuh, Groundspeak, that is not the way our economy works.  

 

Bottom line, now you only have three choices:  1) Buy Travel Bugs online, 2) Buy them at a MegaEvent where vendors are present or 3) Convince TravelingGeek to  meet you at your local pub.  For my money, I think I will always prefer #3!
