Alternate Dog Tag Designs

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So I recently found my second travel bug with a dog tag, and I realized that the first one I found has a different design. After looking on the Geocaching store, I found out the first one was the odd one out. I was wondering if this was simply a copy tag made by the owner, or if tags with this layout of info is available for purchase somewhere cause I’ve grown rather fond of this one over the default

The dog tag is the travel bug. An item attached to the dog tag is usually known as a hitch hiker and it's not unusual for there to be more than one hitch hiker attached.

I'm confused.

Are the pictures above two different tags or two sides of the same tag? Are you trying to find tags that look like the bottom one with the travel bug instructions on it? Is that what you are asking?

This is where I feel calling all Trackables "Travel Bug" messes people up.

4/10  you Discovered a Travel Tag  (appears to be virtually) , which is simply another trackable type .    :)

 

Also on 4/10, you Retrieved the Tiger Travel Bug, and still visiting it to caches.

On 4/24, you Retrieved another Travel Bug as well (dog), and still visiting it as well.

 

Some helpful Trackable info might be found in the Help Center .

Maybe I wasn’t clear enough in my first post. The photos are two sides of the same tag. This is the first one I physically found, the same day as discovering one virtually.

 

I’m wondering about the design of the tag itself. I understand the difference between a trackable and a hitchhiker, so I’m not concerned with the tiger.
 

The tag I posted has the code on the front, where it normally says “trackable at Geocaching.com” and the backside has the design vertically instead of horizontally

Shop Groundspeak's tag has horizontal text. I do like the vertical text better.

True.    :)

 

Simply another variation of a standard Travel Bug.  We have some old ones that are "just a bit" different than seen today.

The design has changed over the years, maybe more than once.  Older design(s) are no longer available.
