    Thumbs down Largest TB ever, I think

    Anyody interested in helping?

    A couple of weeks ago I had to leave ME and go to TX quickly do to a death in the imediate family. I made it from Benton to Augusta were my car's engine head blew. I got a rental in August and turned it in here in OH, my home state, prior to driving to TX and back. (almost 5,300 miles driven in six days)

    This all means that my car, now fixed, is in ME and I am in OH. I was woundering if I attached a key to a travel bug, would cachers be intereed in driving the car towards OH, securing the vehicle, and dropping the TB with key in a near by and hopefully very well used cache. Of course, anyone who picks up the TB would need to get the location of the vehicle so there would be some way of knowing who had possetion of the vehicle. OR Coordination would need to be made with another cacher willing to help out. Any cacher who put fuel in the vehicle would be reimbursed.

    If I find enough interested cachers I might be willing to do this.

    Oh, yeah, the car has a manual transmission, but I am told in ME most of you can handle that.

    Let me know what you all think.

    Chevy Cavalier, full of my camping gear. I still need to pay the mechanics though before they will release it.

    I would love to go to Ohio but then the issue would be getting back home and timing this in with my vacation time.

    I'd have to say if this was to happen -- the car being a TB and being brought out to Ohio cacher by cacher that it would be a very, very cool thing -- not to mention a very nice thing to do to help out a fellow cacher.

    Of course I know of at least two cachers here who hail from the state of Ohio and they have plenty of experience with broken down vehicles. . . .

    ATTROLL; When are you planning to take a vacation? I could get you a flight on SkyBus back to Portsmouth, NH. Also there is a lot of good caching around here if you wanted to spend some time.

    The trick would be getting you from Portsmouth back to your home, maybe we could take the TB off of the car and place it on you as an ear ring or something and move you from cache to cache back towards your home.

    Sorry planes are not in my itinerary anymore. I flew in enough planes in my 20 years in the navy during duty station transfers and going overseas. I have vowed not to set flight in another plane again as long as I live. 911 did not help matters either.

    It looks like I am going to take my vacation either the first or the second week of October. I am going to do a week of backpacking on the Appalachian Trail for a week, so it looks like the drive it out of the question right now.

    We saw plenty of cars as TBs at GW5. If you do this, keep the TB attached - for the life of the car!

    Hope someone can help and may be OH bound. I can think of lots of good reasons to go - The AirForce Museum, Longaberger factory and loads more plusof course caches.
