I've been e-bombing several. After the third, I heard from about 50%

They live in micro-land, but will look for something bigger.

I sent an email to him and then also posted something on the Geocachers of Northern Illinois forums. I figured that geocachers are generally a close knit group and maybe word will make it back to that cacher to place it back out there.

Very Happy Beat this one. After 7 years, and almost 4 months my Steves CROCed TB is back and has been placed. Very Happy Question
Wonder if the batteries are still good in him? He did talk.

Not sure. I think I remember my grandma talking about that once. Wink

Would you go to all the trouble and expense of developing film, scanning it, and posting the pictures on the website for some guy's TB? I sure wouldn't.

The next finder of the cache it was placed in didnt see this TB but since then it has moved twice so it is traveling once more.
The long holder of it did e-mail me back when he picked him up in 02 and told me he was going to try and meet with Steve Irwin and have him sign the TB and a few pictures with him but then????
