I might write about the weekend a little later (it was a grab bag of fun, weird, disturbing, failure and redemption). For now, I will announce an addition to the Team Dr. Momentum geocaching family. In a way, there are two additions. Multiple times now, Maggie had accompanied us caching.
However, the other new addition is Chip over there on the right. The Rescue Ranger. This is our geocaching mascot and companion.
Travel bugs (as I previously mentioned) are meant to go from cache to cache. They pass from geocacher to geocacher. But recently I’ve noticed some folks using a travel bug tag in a slightly different way. They don’t actually leave the bug in any cache. They log it on the website as having been put in a cache, and then they log themselves as taking it back.
This is a little weird, but it accomplishes a few things:
So, just more goofy fun. If you’d like to watch this travel bug, this is the bug’s tracking page.
