I found one in Iowa and have no clue what they are. It had a website on it www.travelertags.com Does anyone here know what they are?

They are very similar to the TB tags everyone is used to. These are much cheaper though. I think there is something called the travel ingot, as well.

The difference that I am noticing is that the ingot is trackable on GC.com and the Traveler Tags are only trackable on their website.

I think that these are a lot like Path Tags.

We have gone to the site and created a few traveler tags. we have pplaced 4 of them out. the difference between these and the travel tags or travel ingots is that you have to go to the travelertags.com site to log finding the traveler. you make your own tag to go with the item you want and then palce them. the thing is that not many have seen these and do not pick them up or log them. the 4 we have out have not been moved or logged since august of last year.

Humm. Is it a bad sign that I don't think I've ever seen one of these things in two months of caching? I wonder if my kids took some by mistake. Are they common? Clearly marked?

I don't know that I have ever seen one either.
