+Dnalsi Posted October 31, 2008 Share Posted October 31, 2008 In my limited finds (39) of trackables, I've found some with items attached by cachers OTHER than the trackable's owner. Sometimes it is a cache sig card placed in the baggie holding/protecting the trackable item. Yesterday, I picked up a geocoin that originated in the Netherlands. This coin had 2 other items firmly attached directly to the coin, that differed from the coins release photo. One was a cache card zip tied to the coin from a cacher in MI claiming 9400 TB's that have travelled over 11 million miles. The other was a metal bear figurine attached onto the key ring. I emailed the coins owner, explaining what I found. The owner asked me to remove the extra items, which I did. I'm just wondering: 1) How common it is for cachers to attach items to trackables that do not belong to them? 2) Is this practice accepted by the geocaching community? I did try a search for this with no luck. I kept finding suggested ways to attach things to your own trackable. I'm guessing most cachers don't even notice. Quote Link to comment
