Pacific Lamprey Challenge

When the US Fish and Wildlife Department wanted to create a challenge cache series to educate the public about the Pacific Lamprey, they wanted to give participants something to remember the experience by.  They were looking for a gift that would be meaningful to Geocachers, but which is available on a budget.  They selected Pathtags!

The only way to get their beautiful tag is by completeing the cache series, located just Southwest of Olympia, Washington.

Here are all six mystery cache sites:
 
The overall goals of this program are:
  • Educate the public about the Pacific Lamprey
  • Educate the public about the Chehalis River Basin and the partners working to conserve/restore it.
  • Connect People With Nature via geocaching

Walton Robotics FIRST Team 2974 Pathtag

FIRST is a nonprofit organization founded by famed inventor Dean Kamen to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers among young people. The vehicle for making this happen is a program of competitive robotics tournaments for children as young as Kindergarten through high school.

In 2013, Walton Robotics Team 2974 decided to do something special to leave a lasting impression on the people they "crossed paths with" at their competition.  They created a Pathtag to give to other attendees! 

Lisa Malice, one of the team's mentors, said "The pathtags were a big hit with the students because it was a unique give-away and because of the creative approach to spreading our message. Geocachers I met loved it, but the muggle families I talked with were really intrigued! We are starting to see log ins pop up on our tag map, including the ones I sent to Australia and Oregon to collectors who agreed to place them in geocaches."

"This tag is a bit of a change from my earlier signature tags. I think it turned out great, and I hope it will be a good trader. I really enjoy pathtags, and most of all, I enjoy trading. Let the trading begin. Thanks!!"

"I've received today my tags and..... they are incredible. It was my first design and I was worried because the images are too small but when I've seen them I've realized how perfect the little shapes are. Great work. Thank you very much."

"I started geocaching only about 4 1/2 months ago, and went to my first event when I only had 2 finds under my belt. I met a lot of nice people there, one of whom had brought his collection of over 300 pathtags. Of course I was curious about these little pieces of art, and asked to take a look at his collection. Right then, I just knew that I had to have my own! Later the same evening, I was given a signature tag by the tag's owner, and that only confirmed my desire to get my own! I resisted the temptation to hastily design my pathtag, but within 2 months I had placed an order. The blueprint confirmation process was a bit problematic for me, but now that my tags are here, I am absolutely thrilled with them! I'm so proud of the way they turned out, and am enjoying face-to-face trading with geocaching friends, and a little bit of trading through the mail so far. I can tell already that I will have to come up another design or 2 (or 3, or 4...)!"

"What do you design for your very first Pathtag? I decided to dedicate this, my signature piece, to my dad and three uncles who worked for and retired from Lockheed. My dad's first and favorite plane was the P38. The mountains represent where our home became after his retirement, and the Lockheed Martin star shines in the background. My designer captured it perfectly. I love it and now love learning to trade. Yeah, trading and designing.....a whole new life ......."

"I just love all the color and detail that explode off these tiny bits of metal. One of the many great things about these tags are the reactions people submit when they find your tag in a cache. The life of a Pathtag doesn't end when they get shipped! I enjoy the trades and the excitement shared when someone discovers a tag. Thank you for your continued amazing work, attention to detail and the system that keeps the Pathtag community alive."

"What can we say? With so much detail crammed into such a small object we weren't sure if this little guy would keep his character. But boy, did this baby turn out grand! Not only did this tag turn out to be a true gem, but it's got LOADS of character, size and INSANE detail. Be sure to check out the photo we added of the tag in real life. Simply AMAZING! Our customers LOVE it, we LOVE it and we'll certainly be back for more in the future!"

"Este es mi primero, y estoy realmente contento del trabajo qiue habeis realizado, gracias!!"



"I was a bit worried after I got the "what this will look like" back. But very happy I said yes. It turned out very well. They did a great job of fixing up my mistakes in the design and cleaned it up a bit. I'm very happy with how it has turned out."

"I love my poker chip tag! Thank you very much for all your hard work! "

"I found my first PathTag in Sept 2007, but didn't have one of my own made until May 2009. In the past year I have experienced the joy of creating my own PathTags and collecting them 8 times now. I had an idea for a tag design for the Pern Club on the PathTags Forums. With an excellent artwork by TX Dreamweaver and the great work by the PathTags blueprinters my Pern tag was born. I had concerns about it's producibility given the many small details in the design. When I received my tags I couldn't be more pleased. They look fantastic. I'm working on the design for my next tag now. Stay tuned. . ."
