    I put cards out and the unlit campfire all the time. People must be getting lazy.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    I still try to push them when I can and try to place my sig items in caches that are worthy and big enough, and hope that some like the idea and continue the tradition.

    Default Signature Items

    I'm bringing my "signature" spaghetti sauce with meatballs and if I can get the time homemade corn beef hash for the Saturday breakfast. Hopefully this thread will remain about the event and not caching the way it was before the war. Events like this one are some of "new" activities that happen in the caching world that offer a positive experience for all!

    As usual we never stay on topic. And I did intend to mention in my post that all change is not bad. Obviously if not for change, sig items would never have been part of caching; they certainly were not the norm when it started! Good people and good food have always been the norm around here though! That's the change I don't want to see come. The first person that holds a vegetarian event better watch out for the war cries then!

    I left my signature in my batch of meatballs at the Cashe Bashe. Chopped the end of my thumb off while cutting the peppers. Did anyone find it?

    Pathtags make great signature items and they fit in film canisters. Nothing fits in nanos, and even pathtags won't fit in match holders.

    They do make a great "store-bought" sig item. But just like food at an event, something homemade is often more appealing than something bought. The advantage of pathtags in that argument is they do have a personal touch despite being commercial, there are many very nice ones. It's amazing the detail that can come on a small item.

    Perhaps part of the idea of pathtags came from the need of an item that would fit into film cans.

    Lee and I are considering a joint pathtag that represents both of us, but we will keep our regular sig items as well.
