Legominifigure and Geocaching...

Peter1975Peter1975 DeventerMember Posts: 166
Apart from being an AFOL, we, as family, love to geocaching. For those who don't know what that is about, go to www.geocaching.com
Anyway, looking for a present for a friend of mine I spotted this:
http://www.geodox-outdoor.nl/trackable-legotm-figure-zwart-jasje-zwarte-helm-p-9532.html

So I thougt, for those who collect minifigs, maybe you'll like this to. They come in various colours.

    just so you're aware - those are not printed torsos... they are basically printed vests that could be covering up another type of torso (one review mentioned a doctor)

    I think it's cool, but I have a feeling it's another reason for someone to keep a trackable item that they might find and at $13 it's pretty steep for what it is.

    You just made me think of something concerning geochaching. I've heard and talked to guys who do this with military challenge coins, basically to see how far a coin and travel. Some would even use the pet type gps device attached to the coin so the original own could track the movements. Pretty cool to see a coin go from Texas to Iraq, Afgan, and back to the states.

    I think this would be cool to do with a mini figure or two. Maybe start a thread here, I"m sure there are some here that are into geocaching. Especially for those of us who travel a lot, it'd be neat to see if we can get one to move all over the country.

    Ok my little ramble is over.

    I geocache from time to time, I've always thought about putting a CMF into a cache or a random old figure, but even at $3 I thought it was too expensive to put in since most of the stuff I find is random trinkets from 25 cent machines and such. I like the idea, but for me (only being an occasional geocacher) I wouldn't do it. Would be really interested to see if others do though!

    We geochache often. Also got a trackable as @Ccntryislandboy is revering to. Pitty it is not a minifig. (yet). But indeed, we receive an email every time it makes a stop in another geo cache. Nice to see. You can give your TB (Travel Bug) a mission to follow,
    There are even caches based on Lego see for:

    On this page you can go to the "fotogalerij" seeing some pics of the cache. Very nice done.
