A neat idea to get those lost travel bugs out of your cache inventory. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache...2-94e7818cbaa8
Wow. That a lot of travel bugs on the list.
Sadly enough after seeing this, I have placed two TB's on the site. I will be in mourning for some time over losing Risky Business - he never made it past the cache I placed him in
Two of our 3 travel bugs are in limbo. One was taken by someone who logged in at the cache and took the TB, but never logged in on line and never took it off the cache web site. I was sent their caching name by someone who followed and have emailed them, with no reply yet. The other one was grabbed at a cache event in Tennessee in June and hasn't been posted since. Both had logged a fair number of miles, but it's still disappointing to think that they're out of action for good.
Bummer for those whose TB never made it past one or two caches
I feel bad because a couple of the TB's in the Graveyard were ones that we were the last ones to place in a cache. One I know was picked up by a cacher who is now banned speaks for itself - but the other just sems to have dropped off the face earth.
It is disconcerting to know that you were the last to have logged the bug, however...
It seems that the old TB Graveyard is disabled, does anyone know of another Graveyard or place to put the dead TBs?
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
I don't write off TBs for a long time. Do appreciate folks owning a cache - makring them missing however so they are properly marked.
TBs and coins, once released are beyond our control, it is but a stroke of luck they continue to travel. Be it a cache or an event - neither one is better than the other to ensure the longevity of a traveler. I have had some good luck and some are missing too........maybe some day they will reappear.
These are out of the country but I see others from the states have used them
here this fall! Really!
He's in the Navy, and was serving a 6-week deployment on the USS Fort McHenry as a photographer for the African Partnership Station off the coast of west Africa. Crossing the equator is a big deal in the Navy, and once you done so, you're classified as a "Shellback". But a person who has crossed the equator at the prime meridian is classified as a "Diamond Shellback". Ship commanders make an effort to cross these points, and he was onboard when they crossed this fall.
Sadly, he's not a geocacher, so I doubt if he dropped off any TB's. LOL!
