Duplebugs - TB Proxies
Aren’t these cute? I placed a recent order with CoinsAndPins.com and needed to spend a few more dollars for free shipping (yes, spending more cost me less than order plus shipping. Odd, right?). So I was searching around and the site suggested, based on my order, these DupleBugs.
Basically, they are a proxy tag you can add to a traveler to send them back out into the world. On the back is a gray box where you can ink your tracking code. They are cute and inexpensive. The sight says they are made of a flexible plastic to endure rough handling – it still seems a little flimsy to me. What is cool is the great stainless steel airplane cable key rings that comes with it - I use them to hold my pathtag collections.
I’m in a bit of a conundrum now. This seems the cheapest method to return my missing TB’s back into play. But I have over 2 dozen of them (marked missing by CO’s, caches archived, trackables dismantled or missing). Which, if any, do I return to the caching wild? And is it worth it when so many Cachers have proclaimed their disdain for proxies?
