My brother went to an event in MA. where the Event Crashing Coyote was hanging out.This is The Big plush TB wearing Coyote, released by Team MoxiePup.We thought this to be Such a COOL idea. I was wondering if anyone has discovered or released any other Huge TBs like that.
Also , I am releasing Caching Crow The Traveling TB at The Maine Pirate Quest to be discovered and traded. He is a 8" x 34" Original Painting carrying an Activated TB in his beak. Cachin' Crow is a character that I came up with last year and my brother and I have created a series of Cachin' Crows that are being made into Geocoins.
I would like to know what everyone thinks of these sort of Giant TBs and Event Crasher TBs in general and in reguards to moving them along!
And any stories about them as well!!:o

personally, i love to see the obscure, nonconvential TB traveling around, i love seeing the creative ideas people come up with to send a tb around (then kick myself and say "arg why didnt i think of that!") There's no wrong way to cache, it's all about havin fun. :D:D:D

There's a bowling ball that's rolling around somewhere, and some kind of green plastic flamingo. When you hold an event, part of the fun is that you never know what people will dump on you, er, I mean, leave as a gift for you!

Cache Maine has a Photo Album TB I believe. It's been to a bunch of events but isn't always there.

When we were at GW5 we saw loads of different and very creative TBs. Many different cars with TB decals (huge) and other attachments with TB numbers. Cars of all sorts and styles. There were stock car tires, wheels with TBs, paintings with TBs - and lots of creative things. Even folks wearing huge necklaces that were TBs. TBs are only limited by the creative juices of the creator so to speak. Now if I can find my GW5 photos so I perhaps could post some photos of the TBs - I know I took a few.

Now an event to bring the most unusual, creative TB - that is an interesting concept. Keep us posted!

Here's a link to the jeep picture. The TB tag was riveted to the back hatch next to the decal "JEEP"

Medawisla - that's an awesome picture of you 2!

You riveted it on but there are folks now selling decals of the TBs with the numbers and the set of metal ones which match.

Hey all,
Just want to drop a note on my event crashing TB CACHING CROW ...
It has now accumilated 2224 km and hit it's third event since the Pirate Quest.
It went from Maine to Rhode Island to Minnisota. How's that for an Obscure Event Crashing TB. I asked my brother if we would ever see it again and he replyed ...
NEVER MORE !!!!!

The Flamingo is mine! It is not green it is camouflaged, it has a mission to get to New Jersey to my brother's hands, he is going to make a cache from it. It only made it to some event where it disappeared, who ever has it please move it along.
