Featured Munzee Toolkit: Shane Phillips (thethunderbirds)

One of the best parts about Munzee is that you can play how you want. Everyone goes about playing a bit differently, and that leads to some very creative and innovative uses of objects. From containers to bags to maintenance, we always encounter something new when we meet players. We want to showcase your Munzee Toolkits to see how you play the game and possibly even inspire other players who may need help. This week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes from Shane Phillips (thethunderbirds).

I’m Shane Phillips (thethunderbirds) from Highland Village, Texas.

What’s in your Munzee Toolkit?
I work from home, so I only do serious Munzeeing on the weekends. Being a part of the L5 clan “Ghostbusters”, I need to get out most weekends to meet my commitment.

My Munzee toolkit is very straightforward. A sling pack to carry everything. Honestly, it is in the car most of the time. The bag contains a light waterproof jacket (rolled up), first aid kit, flashlight/stylus, and an umbrella. The stylus helps if I am doing a lot of virtual capping, and the flashlight helps with the forward facing camera under benches.

My Munzee kit has all the physical munzees from the monthly MunzPak. The kit is a small fishing tackle box. There was a problem with munzees sliding around between compartments, so my wife glued some vinyl shelf liner to the lid, and that keeps them in their proper place.

Finally, power. I have 2 battery phone cases and a 7W foldable solar panel. I usually leave the solar panel on the dash of the car while I am out. It charges my extra case or power pack. For long walks, I can hang it on the backpack to charge while walking.

I listen to A LOT of audio books. I am always reading while out. I use Bluetooth headphones because I used to catch the headphone cable when capping. I have 2 sets of headphones as they only last 4 hours on a charge. I also have a small power pack (white) so I can always have one set charged.
