TravelFleas™ are now GeoFleaz™

GeoFleazLogoTMcorp


We here at the OCNA blog first noticed on December 30th, 2014, that if you typed www.travelfleas.com into your web browser of choice, that you were redirected to www.geofleaz.com. There we found a new website, with a new name and a new design; all for the same great product, of course. The change was announced on social media (and even via email if you were an existing customer) a couple days later, and we asked Mike and Karen from GeoFleaz™ if we could do a blog post. We agreed that rather than a long drawn-out interview on the re-branding of their product, that we could just copy and paste some of the information on who they are, why they started the business in the first place, and why they changed their name, from a couple different places on their website, and repost it here. After all, we’re both busy!

Winner announced for the TravelFleas Giveaway!

Geocaching-Trackables-TravelFleas-Santa-640-x-475

We have a winner for our $10 TravelFleas.com Gift Certificate Giveaway! Ian, AKA Bangkok_Ian, a Geocacher from Foxwood, England (A suburb of York, England) was the lucky winner. He is so named because he lived and worked in Bangkok,  Thailand for 10 years.  Sounds very interesting, perhaps we could convince him to be interviewed by this blog in the future.  🙂 Congratulations to him, and thanks to all who entered the contest. Didn’t win? You can always buy your own personalized TravelFleas from TravelFleas.com. They are very reasonably priced, and are a great signature item.

2nd Annual TravelFleas Gift Certificate Holiday Giveaway

Geocaching-TravelFleas-Christmas-1st


Happy Black Friday, shoppers! Actually, we’re posting this Thanksgiving evening, but Thanksgiving is the new Black Friday. Our November/December 2013 TravelFleas Gift Certificate Holiday Giveaway went pretty well, so we’ve decided to make it an annual thing. So once again, we’re giving away a $10 Gift Certificate to TravelFleas.com, and we want to insure that the winner has plenty of time to get theirs ordered, manufactured, and shipped before the holidays; as TravelFleas make a perfect stocking stuffer for that Geocacher in your life!

The crew at TravelFleas are great friends of this blog and our website via social media. In case you’re not familiar with TravelFleas, they are personalized tags (they can accept up to 20 characters) measuring 1/2″ x 1 1/4″, which can be attached to a Geocaching trackable, or placed in a Geocache as a signature item. They are available in 12 colors, and you can buy them in the TravelFleas Store on their website. Note they have other items for sale, including TravelFleas logbooks, necklace kits, and license plates (a moot point for the blogger, who lives in a 2 plate State). Or you could learn more about them by reading the interview we did on this blog with John from TravelFleas on June 27th, 2013, or the interview The It’s not about the numbers blog did with Mike from TravelFleas in 2012.
