      And writing 6 digits down from a moving vehicle (given my wonky vision anyway) is asking a LOT. Sorry.

      It can be a slow process -- we have had Fiedo's Odyssey up for several weeks and no finds yet! Part of the problem for us is that the bug is just too subtle -- black on grey-tinted window.

      Thanks so much everyone - I now fully understand and now the challenge is on to find my "The Sentra Bug" and "The Vigor Bug" driving around North Austin. Mostly in Cedar Park! Lets see who can spot one first!

      Thanks Again

It works well enough for me. you can do pretty much whatever you would like with them. Just don't try and put your window in a cache. It might break.

So if it does go missing, you can send out something else with that number (there's a company that's in the process of making proxy coins, which will be engraved with the numbers you choose), and the bug lives on. Some people even delete all the logs, so the mileage starts back at zero -- if you care about those statistics.

The trick is, of course, if you send out a proxy item, that cachers RECOGNIZE that is a trackable. I've had a couple failures in that regard. But all I was out was paper and lamination. So no tears.
