I'm curious. I have had a vinyl sticker made with a tracking number. I plan to use it mostly to be discovered not actually travel, such as events etc. I am torn between a decal on my truck, or on the back of my phone. I almost always have my phone with me, so it could get more activity. However, I feel like discovering a pickup would be more enjoyable for others to discover.

 

My question is for feedback:

On which would you be more willing to throw down a discovered log?

The most common way I discover personal Trackables is at cache events, taking pictures of decals on cars so I can log them later (also usually another picture of the car with no tracking number in view, for the log). Other people at events do log cars. I rarely ask a cacher if they have a personal Trackable for me to log, if I don't see it. I sometimes log Trackable shirts or whatever, when it's easy to tell they're Trackable.

 

But I have logged especially creative personal Trackables, as well. A couple of cachers wear a Garmin Chirp that transmits the tracking number.

 

So if the back of your phone is very cool, and if I find out at an event that you are the person with the amazing back of a phone, and you keep it in view, it's possible that I would log it.

Like kunarion, I don't ask people for trackable info at events, I only photograph trackables displayed in view for later logging. In my opinion, I would go with the vehicle decal, I think you would get more discovers.

 

As for vehicle decals, my daughter-in-law went a little overboard for the decal she got me. See this link for the decal on my vehicle.

That. Is. Awesome. I want one on my future Airstream.

I'd discover either, so do both!

 

Having said that, although admittedly exceedingly rare, one of my absolute favorite discoveries was the tagged vehicle I was behind by chance while driving back to work one afternoon. Grabbing vehicles in the parking lot during an event is fine and all, and catching one by chance in a parking lot when heading out for a hike is OK, but nothing beats bagging one in the wild.

That's exactly why I like my vehicle TB so much. It is very easy to read from a distance. I have had several logs on it from people that saw me going by on the freeway.

 

On the other hand, when I was parking at the Block Party, I had someone come up and ask why I didn't have a travel bug on my vehicle. I asked them to step back twenty feet and look again.

 

My next TB is going to be 20 feet long. I'm going to paint it on my carhauler flatbed trailer. I will allow discoveries via Google Earth.
