August 2016:  Get Your Glow On!

Glow is back!  This opportunity allows you to add one of 11 great glow colors to your design at no additional cost!  The use of glow relies heavily on your design parameters.  Wide open spaces (like a big moon) will work much better than small spots (like eyes or small lettering).  If we are unable to accommodate glow in your design you will be notified when your blueprint is posted.  Pick your glow color on the "Glow" tab during the ordering process.


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."

"Our first tag and it came out much better then we thought was possible!! Our thanks to pathtag and Jamie and Jessica of Web Design by J & J"

"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 found my first Pathtag in 2009 and did not know what it was. I just gave them away or placed them in other caches. Once I realized that you could trade and collect them with Geocachers around the world I was hooked. This is my first tag, Designed by Dark Star and limited to 100. It is still undergoing revisions, but I know it will turn out awesome. Team Low Tech is a iPhone(3G/S) Geocaching group with active members in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. "

Just one suggestion... when mailing new ones out include a reorder form because when people see how nice they are... THEY WILL ALL WANT TO ORDER MORE RIGHT AWAY! I can't tell you how happy I am with the quality, colors, design... EVERYTHING! Thanks so much."

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."
