Placing bugs I own to get them off my list...

I'd like to know if there is a place, cache, etc, you can drop bugs into that would hold them for you only so they weren't on my list. I have several geocoins I have no intention of releasing, but I did activate them. I take it the easiest way to not have them on the list would be to not activate them, but I already did. What is the second best option? (if any)

Create a cache but do not publish it. That way only you can see it and you can drop your coins into it. They are off your inventory but still activated.

 

Seems like GC.com wouldn't like to have #'s tied up that way, but sounds like it would work. TFTA! (Thanks for the advice!)

You can simply move the bugs out to an unknown location. Access the bug page and under Trackable Item Options there is a pulldown menu that reads Recalculate Distance. Under there is the option to mark as Missing.

 

The bugs can still be Discovered and they won't have any false mileage added by being placed into a cache.

That does not seem to remove them from your inventory. I just tried it with one of my coins

Currently the only way to remove them from your Ownership Inventory would be to adopt them out to another user. Placing them in an unpublished cache won't remove them either.

 

Placing them out to an Unknown Location will take them out of your Drop Inventory that you see every time you post a log on a cache.

One other option for you is you could do the same thing I do:

 

I drop mine in NOVA Micro # 12 (GCTNKR) which is less than 100 feet from my house. It is one of my older caches and is now archived. It removes my tbs and coins from my inventory and also provides an acurate mileage. This would serve the same function for you since it is most likely the closest archived listing to your residence. I guess I could let you use that for all of your trackables.
