  1. As a newbie I'm looking forward to it.....But just curious could there be a real coin that can be given in the end? Just an idea.........
  2. Huge question here for Newbie.....I'm looking at a lot of maps and seeing alot of caches very close together....within feet....especially in the city locations.....I know the correct distance by guideline.... what about the city maps????
  3. There's an attached "medallion" Geocoin, specially bent to for a hiking staff. I happened to find the medallion while browsing the net for Geocoins one day. As Gitchee-Gummee mentioned, you can be as creative as you like, so it doesn't have to be a specialized attached coin. That is awesome and i checked out the link where you can buy them too, thanks so much, I'm working on some creative items right now........
  4. The Shop Groundspeak store sells 'em: http://shop.geocaching.com/default/trackable-traveler-walking-stick.html You can make your own, from the ground up or buy a stick and attach a TB tag to it. Thanks so much for the link and the questions answered....
  5. I don't place it in a cache container. People could log “Discovered” when they see me with it. I log a “Visit” on some memorable caches, and figured that if I lost it, it could possibly be returned, being trackable. As opposed to the carbon fiber hiking pole I forgot at a cache . There are some TB hiking sticks that are placed near a cache container. Cachers are invited to take the stick and place it at another cache site. One was supposed to be placed within a certain distance (50 feet) so it was called “50 Foot Walking Stick”. The finder was allowed to carry it as long as they like. SO your walking stick is trackable, are you using a dog tag on it or a geocoins with tracking number?
  6. Yeah, like on a hiking stick or a backpack or shirt! I have seen those. I have a Trackable hiking stick, but I've attached a Geocoin "medallion", so that doesn't count -- that is, it's not a number engraved in the wood. I made a Trackable TB shirt, and usually wear the TB dogtags with it, but it would also be fine without them. And my car sends a digital beacon Tracking number, no number shown, so you need to read it via "Chirp" or you can't get the code. Except that I display the actual coin inside the window at Events, for people who don't have Chirp readers. So how do you have a trackable hiking stick....how do you hide that.................
  7. I've heard of that, but have never seen one. TBs that are not official TB Dogtags seem to confuse people (even more than official TB dogtags do ). People ask if it doesn't have a tag, if they can trade and keep it. Without more info, it's hard to advise, to know just what the item is. Then again, after attending an Event Cache, I've written the cache number on my name pin badge and placed it in a cache container... and cachers thought it was a Trackable badge, due to having "a number on it". I guess my point is, if you use "Tracking Numbers" in non-standard ways, prepare for chaos . At least do what you can to reduce the chaos. Have a securely attached info sheet or something. Thanks Kunarian....I've place a couple travel dog tags already ...was just curious on personal items....
  8. Can you take travel bug # of your own and transfer # to a personal made item....? IE: by wood burning it....etc...
  9. Somewhat of a Newie and going to give it a go for 31 days in August, what does it hurt, and i dont mind the souvenir's either...
  10. You can find them on ebay.....
  11. Harsh! B. But true... speaking of the cache, not the owner dying. Edit to add: Whew, had me worried. Capital punishment for bad cache owners...yikes! B. Good to know, thanks for the info.....
  12. Can I replace someone else's missing cache.....There has been no responses from owners as to replacing, can i replace it myself?
