Placing TB in new cache


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to drop a TB in a new cache that hasn't been reviewed yet? I have placed my first cache out there today, after getting the land owner's permission, and have submitted the listing for review. I have also placed my first TB in the cache, but don't seem to be able to 'drop off' the bug in the cache, unless I am completely missing the obvious.


Can anyone help an old duffer out?

If the travel bug has not been placed in a cache before, what I am about to say does not apply - but it may be good to know.


If a travel bug that has been moving around is placed into a new cache before publication, it is possible that some cachers may have that travel bug on their watch list. This will allow them to see that the travel bug has been dropped into a new cache, a certain distance and direction from its previous position, and in some cases, they may be able to make a pretty good guess as to the location of your cache. This could result in someone writing their found it note in the physical log before the cache is published, and possible moving the travel bug while they are there.


It is best to log travel bugs into your cache as soon as you see that the cache page has been published.
