Just a quick question . . when we receive our travel bug from the person we are matched up with, do we have to activate it, or can we keep it as a souvenir of our participation??

Would someone explain to me why we are exchanging unactivated travel bugs? Why don't we just keep our own and just send a card? I enjoy the geocoin exchange but this one I don't understand.

Mainly to keep in the spirit of a "Geocaching" swap. :laughing: Just think how your tags story could begin on it's webpage. Instead of "bought this on sale" maybe "came from COUNTRY/ STATE". :anicute:

The OP was "Mission package will consist of one (1) unactivated regular sized travel tag or bug (1 in or larger no mini)". That seems to mean any kind of Trackable tag, not just official Travel Bugs (which only come in one size). If so, participants may receive a different design of tag than the one they sent.

 

But since I'm not certain, I'm just watching. That's a plan, too. :anicute:

Absolutely... that's the exciting part. The element of surprise, the spirit of the season combined with the adventure and friendship of Geocaching. :laughing:
