Speaking of bright & shiny (see yesterday's post), another fun aspect of Geocaching is the path tags!
Path tags are approximately the size of a quarter. Unlike geocoins (which are sent out with missions), path tags are customized collectables to keep or to trade.
|Here are some recent trades. My sister's signature tag is the lower, left corner one.|
Sometimes you can earn them (for completing a series of tasks) or receive them as a souvenir from an event. These tags are from this year'S Midwest Geobash. The lower left is my personal tag (gorgeous I person but hard to photograph). The lower right is my sister's 'Bash tag!
|This year'S theme was Mardi GRAS|
I've been very lucky - my sister is a very talented designer and designed both of mine. As they are too shiny to really photograph, I'll show you her blueprints.

It's always a thrill to find one in a Geocache! You can log them online so the giver can see who has it, where they found it, and what they think of it.
So far I've collected a few....
