Just after complaining a couple of weeks back about loss of travel items, I had a TB come home that I planted almost 4 years ago in New York City's Central Park. The Rosemount Racer accumulated just over 10,000 miles along the way. Kudos to Greywolf for making the last move from Stillwater to Eagan.

Silly question, but I'm kind of new.

If a TB reaches its goal, do owners often then take them out of circulation?

It's up to the owner. You can change the goal or do whatever you want. Smile

Not that I have seen. I have seen one that went four times to England and back!

Interesting. Thanks.

With the high casualty rates on TBs and coins, I was thinking it would be fun to pull a TB out of circulation if it made its goal. Something like pulling B-17 crews out of combat if they lived through 20 bombing runs in World War II.

It was my racer that made it home. I still have it in my possession because I wanted to photograph it before putting it back out. I just can't seem to find the time. I'll eventually place it back out there, probably down in Venice, LA in a couple of weeks.

Another one of my sons bugs has been in the hands of a cacher for over a year. And still has not been droped. He is a guy that I have seen on here before I just wish he would drop the bug so it could move on.
Or tell us it was lost.

Either would be great.

I have two like that!

I have my first one that I put out that has been 10 months. I have contacted the person and they said that they just had a new kid and would put it out as soon as they could find time. They had their kid a while ago and they have been out caching, even put out some!

Another, someone asked for a coin so that they could practice fair trade. I gave them a coin that I had not placed out into the wild. That was a couple months ago. They have not taken the coin out of my name, I called, they said said they would get it out and never did, I called again....

I got a big surprise tonight when I got home. My TB "Redball" who had been activation on 8/11/06 chugged into the house. Its the first time one of my bugs has accomplished its mission.

This TB will have a new mission next week and will hit the road after gassing up. Very Happy

This bug was missing for almost 2 years.. In fact I forgot I ever owned it. When I saw the owner notification email, I thought the website was screwed up.
