Help getting started w/ trackables

Recommended Posts

Hi there. I'm fairly new to GC but my kids and I love it! We are hoping to set up our own cache and we would really like to put in a trackable in honor o my grandmother who always wanted to see the world. We were hoping to use something of hers and get a code for it.

Is that possible? Can I just buy the code or do I have to buy the whole trackable?

I'm a little confused about it all.

Thank you for any help.

The way it works is that you can either buy an already made trackable or you can buy a set of trackable tags with codes on them. You can then attach them to whatever you want.

Maybe the Help Center section on Trackables might be of some help?

There's also lots of information in the two separate forums for trackables:

 

Travel Bug

Geocoins

I wouldn't recommend attaching anything of sentimental value to the dogtags to make a trackable. These things go missing quite a lot, as do caches containing them.

 

If you can't bear to lose the item, don't make a travel bug out of it.

Thank you so much! I think maybe we'll buy some dog tags then. We'll set up the cache and plant the trackable when we get it.

I really appreciate the fast response. :)
