|These toys have a special ID tag and go from geocache to geocache. |
They are called Travel Bugs or Travelers
|The License Plate on our wall is a Trackable Item|
Tradable swag are items placed in geocaches by other geocachers. Most range from kids toys, trinkets, dollar items, etc. There is one exception that has an id code and is still considered tradable swag, those are known as Path Tags. These quarter sized items have a small hole in them and on the back a unique id code. These are tracked at www.pathtags.com. Even though they sort of look like mini geocoins they are not and if you find one, you can keep it. Trade for equal or better like any other swag but they are collectable.
|These are Path Tags and even though they have an ID number they are considered SWAG|
- Travelers "travel" from one geocache to the next and are personal property of their owners. They have a unique id code attached.
- Trackables are items that have a unique id code and do not travel from one geocache to the next.
- Swag usually does not have unique id codes except for path tags and are swappable items you can trade when found in a geocache for equal or better value.
Please respect the items you find in geocaches and ensure that they safely go from geocache to the next if they are travelers. Trade swag for equal or better value with what you find. Enjoy all these geocaching game pieces and the adventures they take.
