<~snip~> retrieved T and A: Warrior Women: Tulip* (Travel Bug Dog Tag) from Top of the Hill at 3/26/2005

Sorry to report the demise of Tulip. Unfortunatly Tulip was separated from her dog tag. My partner found Tulip in the "Top of the Hill" cache and did not realize that she was part of the travel bug. That and she thought it was a little sexist[/i] and did not want to explain a mini armed woman to the customs officials at the airport on the way home. All that said I don't know if Tulip should be listed as "missing in action" and her tags returned to her owner, or if a photo of tulip would do and the travel bug tags continue on?

did not realize that she was part of the travel bug
WHAT?
she thought it was a little sexist
but grabbed it anyway?
did not want to explain a mini armed woman to the customs officials at the airport
TULIP was carrying weapons. WHY take it?
All that said I don't know if Tulip should be listed as "missing in action" and her tags returned to her owner
THAT would be a good start.

TULIP was the inspiration for this series, after this log by victorymike:

We had a great time finding this cache. The searchers were at the TOP OF THE HILL in Baltimore while I searched for clues in log files on the computer from my home in Newfoundland as we communicated via cel phone. Is this the only sport that takes several billion dollars in infastructure to play? Our first attempt was hampered by darkness and the lack of a flashlight. The second try was not a problem in the daylight. Took one travel bug and left two.
