    I know it and I helped get it unstuck from a cache in NC after all that time too.
    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Not a bit, in fact when I placed the Cache Across America cache in Augusta I had it a members only cache for a while cause I had put in a few coins and TB's and figured they would at least last long enough to leave the cache and that worked pretty well. After they had all been taken I made it a regular cache.

    I had a bug that was sent out from an Army Capt. in New Mexico with a goal to get from N.M. to Iraq and back. I did what I could and received an email from the owner just recently saying that it came back. Sometimes good things happen!!!

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    Just had one of my first go MIA after 17,000 miles. Kind of sad but - maybe, someday it will reappear.

    Something I learned is, before you send one out, printout, laminate and attach the information card to the TB. It makes it a lot easier for people to see what he bug is all about and makes it more likely to move along.

    I probably shouldn't say anything because I'll jinx it, but I just looked and I have 22 out there and most are pretty active. One coin is in Germany and has been doing well out there. It's twin went out to visit Wyoming and then back to Mass.

    I found SOMEWHERE online a travel bug passport thing free download. I have that and it is sorta what your saying Ekidokai. I thought it was a cute idea to let the person looking at it in the cache know what the bugs "goal" or aspirations in life were. It also had the sign up for each person who moved it to list and some other cute things too. I am sure you all have this little goodie tho but I thought it was cute.

    The passports are a great idea. If you release a TB to wander, fine. If you release one with specific goals and no passport, there's trouble. I've picked up TBs before, gotten home (sometimes 100's of miles away) only to find out that the bug was supposed to stay near "that lake" or county or whatever. Or it wanted to go north and I dragged it 200 miles south. Finding out the goal after you log on to the computer is too late for some TBs.
