I have heard there is a new 2005 version of the little Jeep TB's. Is this true? If so does anyone know when they are going to be sending them out to the different states?

I was looking at the www.jeep.geocaching.com site and this year they are a white rubicon jeep. Now that I think about it where did all the yellow ones go? I haven't seen any since October.

From what I understand, something like 90+% are out of circulation now due to various reasons.

The jeep that I released into the wild (#4089) is still on the loose. It was placed in a cache in the boonies of WI late last month...

hate to even bring it up, but has anyone heard word from TPTB about these things? I heard from the national forums that they were contacting the distributors from last years deal and going about the same lines of distribution.

I'd be happy to help out, and I don't care if anyone despises me for it (okay okay, so I'm in it for the icon, for some reason I just like icons), get some here, send some to other parts of the state, let people whine and complain at me, etc... Awful lot of work for an icon I suppose, but I'd deal with it.

At this point Groundspeak has only distributed them to some areas of the country such as Geowoodstock III.

I've only retrieved two of the yellow ones. I was the first person in Minnesota to find a Jeep TB (#2094) and it is currently in Washington state. The other one (#3367) I picked up on Madeline Island, WI and brought it to FL. It was moved to another cache and now it doesn't show up on that page. I thought they were kind of cheap looking and therefore wouldn't be 'collected'. Someone proved me wrong again.

I have placed one near the Minnesota/South Dakota border.
My son and I will be placing the others very soon.

Well I came across one of these today. They are pretty cool, they seem to move around pretty quick too.

Is there a way to search to find where the closest white jeeps are? Or do you need to just look for the white jeep icon in the cache listings?
