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."

"I can't tell you how happy I am with my set of travel pathtags. They are very special souvenirs of some great journeys I have been fortunate to take, and when I look at them I am flooded with wonderful memories! Thank you for taking Pathman's fabulous designs and bringing them to life. "

Stamp's Retired Tags

"Love the tag - great detail. This also shows our family geocaching. We love to make it a family experience and this tag shows our group. "


"We love our new tag, it came out better than imagined. We are getting a good response for trades, more than we thought we would. We look forward to getting the rest of the set made. "

ScoobyDoo and Scrappy too

"The craftsmanship of these Pathtags are absolutely amazing. I'll have to admit, when I would read the stories of others and their Pathtags, I thought maybe they were getting a little overexcited. But now that I received my first Pathtags, I can see why. The whole experience of taking an idea in your mind, making sketches of it, drawing your idea and then submitting it, waiting to see the final blue print, don't even compare to the proud moment you eagerly open up the package from the mail and see the final product. WOW! Now I sound like an overly excited Pathtag owner. Oh well, I like the addiction."


"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. . ."

He's been admired up close and personal and from afar - midnightgothicangel has done an absolutely brilliant job in the design and we are just in awe of our ENVIRO EMU TAG - thank you all at Pathtags from production to shipping - we are delighted!"

Rocky Glen Grommets

"WOW!,received my first Pathtag design yesterday and it had turned out far better than expected."

Mr Jibblets

"I knew when I submitted my artwork that my Jedi Council tag would be a tricky one as I really didn't expect minting so much detail to be possible. But I was pleasantly surprised and continue to be impressed with the job done on these tags. Thanks for the great job you do! ~earthrooster"


"We love our new Pathtags. We were a bit wary to try a new type of signature item. But the ease of your ordering process took a lot of the pressure away. The cost was very reasonable and the product is EXCELLENT. We will be showing them off this weekend at a Geocaching event near our hometown. We will be re-ordering soon."
