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."

"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 ......."

"Wow... I knew it was just going to be black and silver but the detail you did made it pop! I love it! This is my third tag in 2 1/2 months. I think I'm addicted :) But every one I have submitted have come out better than I thought possible! Thanks for all your great work on all the tags!"

"My very first Pathtags just arrived, and wow, are they great! I used my own artwork, and your blueprinters rendered it so well; the Pathtag turned out beautifully. Now I've got to start sending it out to all the people who traded with me. Best of all, I got them in time for this weekend--I'll have a Pathtag to drop in my 100th cache!"

"Deciding which metal plating to use on your Pathtag can have an impact on how the final tag looks. I decided to use Copper on our Vermont tag, and loved how it turned out! I'm so glad that there are different metal plating choices. They also provide an opportunity to order a refill with a differnt look to the tag, by choosing a different metal."

"Hi, we were very excited to receive our tags. Since then I have decided to get with my daughter and design one for her. I have also discovered trading, this has been so much fun for me. The different tags I am receiving are very interesting and the craftsmanship is great. Thanks for the fun dragonox"

"I received my first pathtags "Hiking the U.S." today and I love them thank you very much and thanks to Jennifer at Wicks Works Designs for all her help. I'm sure I'll be ordering future designs. Pathtags are a great way to expand the geocaching fun."

HOOAH!!



"Wow! My latest tags arrived today & I am really impressed with how they turned out... but then again, I have generally found that my tags exceed expectations. It's always great to come home & find a Pathtag parcel waiting for me! Thanks."

Tealby



"I received our tags today in the mail. Since I ordered them, my 5 year old son has wanted to run to the mailbox to see if they had come. He was very excited when they were in todays mail. I opened the package and WOW, they look AWESOME!!! The first question my son asked was "Daddy, can I take some to school for all of my friends?" I see a re-order coming sooner than later."

mztexas



"Absolutely great tag! This came out better than expected, and I can't wait to start hearing comments from cachers and taggers that find or trade for it. Thanks for the beautiful job and well done!"

"My design had a lot of lines & crosshatching to achieve a "sketched" look and I was very nervous about attempting this with a pathtag. Boy, was I ever surprised! They captured every little line in every direction. I am amazed how great they turned out and now absolutley love the risk I took. Thanks so much for this wonderful site & its products. Signature items just got a lot more exciting!"
