The TB is in Georgia now, but now we have to get it to mtn-man. I guess I'll have to find a suitable mountain cache......

I try to contact the cache owner adn ask if my bug is still in it- and if they could move it out- or I contact the last person to have it and tell them I give them 2 weeks to drop it- if they don't, I just go in and grab it and then we bouth some metal tree tags, and I just write the number on it and cloned travelbug and buy another figure and send it out againl I am on my 3rd Dala horse Tbug- that one can't seem to get into the swing- howeverI do have bugs with over 10,000 miles on them. I find that once they get to Europe, they are taken care of quite well and moved on. I just bought 10 more to se out.

I find that putting a card with the bug to further explain how TBs work and what the goal is helps--I released Rabid Rabbit back when I was new and naive and didn't think figuring out how travel bugs work was rocket science--that's the main reason I wanted to grab it when it was in the area, and I changed it's goal as soon as it got to the area so it would stay in the area, but that didn't work because I never got a chance to grab it and attach a card. Kind of a catch-22, I guess.

maybe no goal is best ?

This guy has been traveling for 2-1/2 years, has spent a LOT of time in Germany, and moves quite often.

After almost a year and a half this bug reappeared and should be moving again! YAY!

I just got one back that was released in Croatia last June - its goal was to make it back to me in MN
