Oh wise one - any idea where to find the language to print out, laminate and attach to my new TB? Forest Nymph gifted us with a TB and we want to set it loose. I've web searched, searched, etc. I know I've seen good language on tags before but never wrote it down.

Found two TBs today. One was just the metal tag with NOTHING attached. By coincidence found the owner online live and we chatted about how she wanted to handle the TB. It wants to go to casinos and has twice now lost its directions and casino items. Second is a really cool fireman duck that wants to go to Disneyland. But only knew that when was logging the bug, nothing on the TB to say what it wants to do. I know there is standard language somewhere about what a TB is.

Betcha someone here has an URL?

This is the comment on the TB section of the website...........

A Travel Bug is a trackable item that moves from place to place, picking up stories along the way.

I haven't included such a statement on mine, but I have included the following information:


Name: Take Me Out To The Ballgame
Owner: Beach Comber
Origin: Portland, Maine
Released: September 13, 2004
Goal: To visit baseball fields around the world.

I print this information on a small piece of paper and then laminate it, punch a hole in the corner, and add to the TB tag chain. I also shorten the chain so that it has more chance of staying attached to the item.

I think my TB's have stayed intact - well at least the ones that didn't disappear!
