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 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."


"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 love the special enamels that are available, and really like how our Stormtrooper Halloween tag turned out using them! Our tag has both translucent and glow colors. The translucent colors really add depth to the tag design, and they can be added at any time. The glow colors are a fun element... just shine a light on them and then turn out the lights. Very cool!"

"I was very pleased with how this tag turned out. The snow is glitter and is very subtle. My Clydesdale, Ransom, was the model for this tag. J and J did a great job for us!"


"We received our first personal Pathtag in the mail today and I could not be more pleased. I can't wait to start sending them out into the "wild" Thank you Lee for the wonderful tag. It is awesome and it fits our teams just perfect. "


"It is only to let you know that I did receive my first Pathtag this morning. It really looks great, even better than the blueprint. Less than one month between accepted blueprint and delivery at my home overseas!! Great job. Thanks a lot!! "


"My Difficulty 5 - Owl and Pussycat arrived today, and I am quite blown away! The glittering sky is beautiful, setting of the stars and moon to perfection, and the detail of the owl and pussycat is amazing. It is such a thrill to receive a tag that is even better than expectations. Thanks so much to all the Pathtag hard working team."


"When I found my first pathtag I moved it to another geocache not knowing what I had found. After learning more about them, I found another a few months later and I kept it. Then another few months went by and I had the priviledge of meeting Jellyfish and trippy1976 at an event, within minutes I was hooked! Ed and Mike not only were able to answer my questions, they gave me a few tags to help fuel the desire to create, gift and trade my own. I've since created 2 tags with 2 more planned for the near future, with more to follow. Another pathtag addict is born, thanks for helping with the addiction! ~Lion "


"I just received my first set of 200 pathtags and they're beautiful. I have already ordered a refill for another 200 with a different background, and I submitted a third order with a totally new design. Talk about addictive, and I haven't even given the first pathtag away or even traded one yet. The tags look great, the service has been first class, and the customer support is awesome. You've got me hooked!"
