Travel Bug "Reference Number". How do I use it?

Recommended Posts

I recently saw a TB dropped off in one of my Caches. it is supposed to be in a race with two others back home. they have a reference number, and I noticed reference numbers on the other TBs. I can't figure out for the life of me how to use the reference number.

They are:

Mac Mass (TB112F)

Crocodile Hunter (TB143F)

Cross-country Bike (TB1551)

 

Mac Mass is currently in [http://www.geocaching.com/track/track_detail.asp?ID=4399]Back from the abyss[/url]

 

How do I find the other two? icon_confused.gif

1. Go the the “Hide & Seek a cache” page. (No, that's not a typo.)

2. Enter your Travel Bug reference number in the “Or, Enter a waypoint” box. (That's not a typo, either.)

3. Ta Da! icon_biggrin.gif

Use the 'Hide & seek a cache' button in the left frame of your geocaching.com browser window. Near the bottom of that page, there is a field labeled 'Or, Enter a waypoint:'. Enter the TBnnnn id into that box and hit find! -WR

In case you're wondering why there's a reference number that's separate from the tag serial number, it's so that we have a way of tracking a travel bug, without being privy to the access code for "grabbing" it. (Only those who actually handle the bug should know what the actual tag number is.)

Thank you. I was about to ask this question, and you answered it so well.
