Howdy folks, just discovered this site and forum today - looks like a great companion to gc.com, glad to be here!

I'm on a business trip overseas in Europe right now, and managed to find time to grab a couple of TB's in Belgium. If all goes well I'll nab a few more in the U.K. as time permits, including one that wants to go to Ohio.

Anyway, I'll be putting the bugs into a cache, most likely the West Metro TB Inn (gotta keep it stocked, right?), during the first week of February. One of them, "Go West", is in a 'race' to get to San Francisco, so if anyone can help, let me know and we'll find a way to work it out!

Looking forward to spending time 'round here, thanks and best regards!

-Ken

Thanks Eagleyes, I'm sure the owner will appreciate whatever time it can get there - end of Feb sounds pretty darn good, all things considered! I'd planned to put it in the West Metro TB Inn when I get back in early February, mainly because it's on my way home and it seems like it's running low on bugs. If there's another one you prefer, just let me know - thanks! Very Happy

I am leaving for SF (Santa Rosa) on Thursday 29-Jan, and will help anyone that needs TB's going west.

Dang, Th-Jan 29th is too soon for the Belgium TB that's lounging in my suitcase - we're still in Europe and won't be back until early February! Ah well, thanks anyway Jonsom - I'll still plan on depositing him into the West Metro TB Inn when I get home and hope that Eagleyes can take it at the end of Feb. Thanks!

I am going to Las Vegas again on February 22nd. I think there was another person going to San Francisco a week later which might be faster but I would be glad to if it does not pan out for them!

G'day, we're back from Europe at last, with TB's from Belgium and England in hand - the 14+ inches of snow changed our plans to put the bugs into the West Metro TB Inn, so today over lunch I instead put all 4 bugs into Bobhiker's "Mall of America II" cache.

Not only did it save some snow-hiking in dress shoes, but it also puts them close to the airport and hopefully well within reach of other business travelers that might be visiting our state.

The "Go West" TB is there, which is racing from Belgium to California. Also there is "Daft Tart Jr.", which is trying to get to Dayton, Ohio from the U.K. - I also dropped two non-specific TB's that are out and about with less specific travel goals.

"Maxwell's Silver Hammer", which was supposed to be in the cache, wasn't there but the rest of the cache is in good order. Many thanks as always to anyone that can help move the bugs along - perhaps we can salvage some of MNGCA's rep, it appears to be taking a beating over on GC.com's boards. Thanks, and best regards!

Argh, I am going to Bowling Green, OH next weekend which is about 70 mins from Dayton.

I will try and grab it after work. At least it will be straight above Dayton on I-75. If anyone else has any bugs looking to go to Ohio or "East" I will be leaving on Friday the 13th so get me before then! Smile

I did grab two of the bugs out of the MOA cache that I could help along their way. I will move them next weekend Smile

Thanks!
