+Auld Pharrrt Posted December 1, 2015 Share Posted December 1, 2015 The only negative thing I can say that I have become aware of about geocaching is the number of trackables that seem to go missing in action for whatever reason and I have decided to look into making basic replacements, completely free of charge, for anyone who wants one to replace their own TB's that have gone missing in action. The replacement tag will take the form of a laminated printed paper or thin card which will include the tracking number and, where possible, a photograph of the original TB as it was released by the owner. I will attach this copy to a small trinket of some sort I usually trawl charity shops for trinkets. To make and release a copy I will need to know the Tracking Code so that I can "grab" the TB from it's present location and also the tracking number MUST be included on the replacement tag. Although not necessary, if the owner wants me to attach a specific trinket (nothing too large) as a travelling companion then they can supply it and I will attach it to the replacement tag, otherwise I will attach any small trinket that comes to hand (I buy most of them from charity shops.) The replacement tag will be placed in a cache somewhere here in Scotland, most likely one of my own caches, but if the owner would prefer I will post it to them via snail mail if they pay the cost of P&P in advance. If you would like my help on getting a missing TB resurrected and back on the road, then please feel free to contact me via private message or email from the links on my GEOCACHING.COM profile, either for help to do it yourself or for me to do it for you. I ONLY MAKE COPIES IF ASKED BY THE REGISTERED OWNER ON GEOCACHING.COM. I ONLY MAKE COPIES IF THE ORIGINAL HAS BEEN MISSING FOR AT LEAST 12 MONTHS. I ONLY MAKE COPIES IF I AM PROVIDED WITH THE TRACKING CODE. Check out some samples in my online album at www.clanforbes.co.uk The pictures which include a white plastic rectangular travel bug are only there to give you an idea of what the laminated tag looks like Finally, in the highly unlikely event that anyone has lost interest in the game but doesn't know what to do with their TB's, I would suggest offering to transfer ownership to a friend or family member. However, I'm very willing to accept and adopt any/all TB's (active or MIA) if you just want to get rid of them ... Thank you for taking the time to read all this ... AP.
