If you have a geocoin or travel bug taht you have activated but have not turned loose you can "dip" it in caches you visit by selecting "Visited" for that coin when you log you find. People do it to keep track of mileage between caches they have found.

Typically called a personal tracker. Mine is my shadow. Not the easiest thing to bring to every cache.

By logging a "visit" will your coin/bug then get the miles like it would if one "logged" and then "retrieved". I am traveling from Michigan to Albuquerque, New Mexico and want my coins/bugs to get some miles.... thank you
