Tips before I place my first one please!

I read the Longevity clinic and browsed the forum, so I am almost prepared :) I got my TBs today (fast delivery!), and I know what I want my first one to do: as I just moved to Arkansas from Ireland, and don't know much about the geography, this TB's mission will be to travel to all counties in Arkansas (as far as possible; as some are very rural, there may not be any geocaches, but it might inspire more experiences cachers to place one there :D ). I would love it if cachers posted a bit about the county in their logs, and maybe even put photos of landmarks and stuff. How can I make this more likely? I thought I would put a piece of paper explaining the mission and why it has that mission in a little zip lock bag (and put the same blurb on the TB's page on geocaching.com) with the TB attached, and some sort of traveller- probably my son's baby Razorback hat, which he has grown out of- or would that be too useful/ cute an addition? Would I be better off getting a laminated card? Not sure where I can get laminating done... Is there any sugested wording, anything I should definitely include?


I'd love to see some individual TB pages with good stories/ photos of their travels!

I am a big proponent of the laminated tag. You can find the self-adhesive ones at your local stuffmart in the luggage section. Nowadays I trim them down a bit and then round the corners using the corner rounder. (as shown further down below)


This bug seems to have done well. I asked people to "post a picture visiting a farm, with local livestock, or just you with the bug". I plan on releasing one where people take a picture of the main street in their town and one to take a picture of a house that is common in their town. ( I haven't quite figured out how to word it properly) Then release them in locations foreign to my own. (I guess anywhere is foreign to someone)

It seems to me that no matter what you do people will do whatever the heck they want to.


We have a State Park cache. Beautiful tiny spot but people leave trash there. We put in the writeup that if you arent willing to do at least a little CITO- then dont go. (After all, it is a way to show thank you to the parks who allow us to cache there.)


Is it that hard to carry something out? I think few people really do anything though.
