Sourdough Members: When you enter our online store via the above link, you will be on the Cheechako store page. Please continue into the Sourdough store via the link at the top of the Cheechako store page.
A note about our prices: GeocacheAlaska! is a 501(c)(3) non-profit education organization. Our purpose is outlined in Article II of our by-laws. We price our products to earn a modest profit to help underwrite expenses incurred in meeting the organization's goals. Expenses for PayPal fees, packaging, postage, and insurance are charged at as close to our cost as possible within the constraints of the PayPal shipping calculator. For our overseas customers, we feel your pain regarding international postage rates which have quadrupled since 2010 for packages weighing less than an ounce and more than doubled for heavier packages.
You will see a two-tiered price system. "Sourdough," a reference to someone having spent an entire winter north of the Arctic Circle and refers to their tradition of protecting their sourdough bread starter during the coldest months by keeping it close to their body, pertains to Sourdough members of GeocacheAlaska! who are eligible for member merchandise discounts. "Cheechako," a reference to someone new to Alaska, pertains to anyone else who is not a Sourdough.
Also note that, like all areas of GeocacheAlaska!, our store is staffed by volunteer efforts. None of the folks who staff and run GeocacheAlaska! are paid for the work and we all have day jobs. Orders placed via our online store are batch processed by our volunteer staff. Please allow some extra time for your orders to be packed and shipped. International orders require even more processing time due to USPS paperwork and the requirement to present all international packages in person at a USPS facility during regular business hours.
NEW 2016 Denali Geocoins and Mountain Pathtags have arrived!!! See sales pages for images and details (link above).
