Thanks for designing this patch to celebrate my travel bug's (TB5JJN1) mission on the ISS. What a great ride this has been. Thanks to everyone that has followed along!! I bought 25 of these patches and gave them away at my geocaching in space event. Great quality patch. (Posted on 3/16/14)

After getting 40 years of my husbands "real deal" shuttle and astronaut original patches I now have my OWN original patch! Although he is the one who did the work on the Shuttle at least now we have a hobby together with Geocaching after his retirement.
Thanks for a NASA quality patch. The detail is excellent. I would recommend this to anyone. (Posted on 12/26/13)
A great event for Geocachers worldwide. Review by Loblollylove

The body of water on the bottom of the patch bears a strong resemblance to Lake PendOreille adjacent to Sandpoint Idaho USA. Best wishes for a successful Geocaching mission.

Nice product, looks just like the photo! Purchased one for me, one for a friend, and one to give away at an event coming up to celebrate a trackable traveling to the International Space Station. This patch features an iron-on backing. Patch measures 2.5" in diameter. Thanks! (Posted on 11/1/13)
