Well, it has been a long 3 months since I made the decision to get a new pathtag! But today they finally arrived! Just as well, as I have about 15 outstanding trades that have been patiently waiting for me to have the pathtags in hand for over a month. Mostly, they are going to the USA to trade with other geocaching ham operators but it will be interesting to see where they end up in the world.
Over the next few months, I will be arranging some changes to my first pathtag, namely getting rid of the glitter and adding a translucent darker blue instead, and will go ahead and get a refill made. The bonus of refills is that the base quantity you receive is 100 tags, whereas when you order your first starter kit you only get 50 tags.
This was the blueprint of the pathtag sent for production:
and this is the finished pathtag (about the size of a 10c coin):
