Adopted a couple of TB's but need their numbers


Recommended Posts

As I adopted 3 TB's a few weeks back and a couple are MIA, but I am just going to leave them for now in case they eventually turn up somewhere, My question is, it just dawned on me last night that I would need their numbers if I want to write anything about them, is this correct? I am trying to find the original TB owner but I cannot find their message where they asked for someone to take them over plus a couple of caches which I also took. Hope this is making sense. :blink:


I looked at the TB's pages last night and it asked for the numbers, but I do not have them. I remember the owners geo name and I have looked to see where I could email them, but can't find where I can do this, Plus they were giving up geocaching so the chances are they will not read the message, hmmmmmmm.

Thank you for any help.

If the trackables were formally adopted over to you, by the current owner passing them to you through the adoption utility - www.geocaching.com/adopt - then you'd be seeing the tracking number on the page, it shows up in the upper right corner in the Trackable Options box.


I take it this is not what happened?


If you can get the old owner log on, they can make a transfer by the adoption page. Then you'll see the tracking number and you'll be able to edit that page.
