What Are Pathtags?
A Pathtag is a single-sided custom metal tag about the size and weight of a U.S. Quarter. Pathtags are made from a solid iron base and are plated in a protective colored plating of either silver, gold, copper, or black nickel.
Pathtags are personal trading items used most often in Geocaching. They are also handy for Scouting, Military and Promotional use.
I created the Upper Moreland Class of 1973 Reunion Pathtag to give as a gift to all of us alumni to remember this 50th reunion event. If you Log it as explained below, be sure to add your comments, or just say hello!
What Do You Do with Pathtags?
Keep Them! Unlike geocoins, travel bugs, and other trackables that are found in Geocaching, Pathtags are meant to be kept by the finder. Yes, you get to keep it – as long as you visit the Pathtag Website and Log yours!
To Log the PathTag, go to PathTags.com and enter the serial number. This will require you to create an account, but it’s free and only takes a minute. When logging the Pathtag, the system will ask the following:
- Where you found it
- The tag’s serial number
- When you found it
- You can also leave a personal message for the tag owner and others who Log it
You’ll see comments made by others who’ve logged the Pathtag they received at the Upper Moreland 1973 Class Reunion as my gift: https://www.pathtags.com/community/tag.php?id=54830
Here are some other Pathtags that I’ve created:
What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor adventure that is happening all the time, all around the world. To play, participants use the Geocaching app and/or a GPS device to navigate to cleverly hidden containers called geocaches. There are millions of geocaches in 190 countries waiting to be discovered – there are probably even some near you right now.
Geocaching started in early 2000. When the website launched, only 75 geocaches had been hidden. Today, there are over 3 million geocaches and millions of active geocachers playing the game. Geocaches come in all different shapes, sizes, and difficulties and are hidden in both rural and urban settings.
Geocaching offers something for everyone, from families with children to retirees. Some geocachers play the game to see how many total “finds” they can get, while others play to see how many new states or countries they can visit. Geocaching is a great way to find remarkable destinations that you would not have otherwise discovered. It is also an excellent education tool and an excuse to get off the computer and out into the world!
