Hmmm, they are giving away Magellans? Guess not enough people are buying them? What do you want to bet that they offer to insure the device if you win it? Sadly, I put in a request as well. Free stuff is always good stuff.

It also states these TBs are unactivated, which as I take it they will belong to your account, unlike the Jeeps which were all controlled by Jeep. Using that train of thought, different goals could be given to these TBs.

Sheesh! I requested one for each of us - so I hope that since the request went through we'll get the TB's.

You can enter once each week for 20 weeks.

I have the "prototype" travel bug on my watch list and it seems that not many have wrote a note to it. I'm not sure that means anything though.

Entering is the contest - not the TB giveaway. I though there was only one per address but I could be wrong. If I get one great, if not - not sweat and if I were to win the GPSr - I already know where it will go........................to a camping program for young people.

I got my TB tag today. It's small, but cute. Not sure what to attach it to, I'm not the most inventive (or lucky) person when it comes to TBs.

Attach a nano cache container to it.

Great news!

Due to the remarkable demand, GEICO has agreed to provide another batch of GEICO Gecko Trackable Tags.




We expect to have them available within the next few weeks, so check back soon for the request form. We will be sending them out to new homes as soon as we get them. In the meantime, donít forget to enter the Find the Gecko Sweepstakes (http://www.geocaching.com/GEICO/entry.aspx) each week, and check on the locations of existing GEICO Geckoís here (http://www.geocaching.com/GEICO/movements.aspx).
