I've seen some people joke about starting a large TB, and I've always thought it would be cool to attach a dog tag to something large and send it on its way. My question is, what's the largest TB you've ever encountered? The largest I've seen was a Harley Bear stuffed animal TB. Not all that large and easily fit into an ammo container. However, has anyone ever found a bowling ball or something of similar size?
Just curious.

I know The Collector has always dreamed of a bowling ball TBs and even a race with them. One that I have seen the wrecked rim from zoejam72's vehicle. That is the largest that I have seen in the hands of different cachers. I know zoejam72, tecgeojim and epminnesota all have their vehicles as TBs.

Largest bug, not on wheels was a volkswagen beetle hood. Yep, the whole hood, watched a guy load that up into his car and down the road he went. I was trying to find a picture but am striking out so far... will keep looking.

I see in the picture, the Jeep has a big dog tag as well. Did the person just transfer the numbers from the small tag to the big tag or was it a fictional number?
I really want to start a big TB now!
Very Happy

Zoejam72 have a suburban TB, IBcrashen has a Toyota pickup TB, and I saw a bomb at MOGA last spring that was a TB. Dog-gone thing stood 4 foot tall. I think it was a practice bomb, Arctic would know.
