    I'd post some pics, but I don't have access to a digital camera or a scanner. icon_frown.gif

     

    Some of my friends have digital cameras. I can try to drag someone out there, but it may be a while. If you add the Frog Shrine to your watchlist, I'll post a note if/when I get some pictures. Meanwhile, you can always come out to Santa Barbara for a visit. icon_wink.gif

    Well, how about this for a goal:

     

    "My goal is to make a pilgrimage to the Frog Shrine in Santa Barbara, have my picture taken as evidence of my visit, and then return to my home in XXXXX. You can check out my page on geocaching.com to see if I've reached my destination so you know which direction I'm headed."

  5. Looking for an idea for a travel bug?

     

    In Santa Barbara, California there's a semi-virtual cache called the Frog Shrine. It's basically a nook in a stone wall in a residential neighborhood where people have been collecting frog-related items for many years. I have no idea who started it or why, but a few months ago, I took down the coordinates and posted it as a geocache. Lots of folks have since visited it.

     

    I think it would be really cool if people started sending toy frogs on travel bug "pilgrimages" to the Frog Shrine. Any sort of smallish, weather-proof item that looks like a frog or has a picture of a frog on it would be appropriate.

     

    I think it would be interesting to see how many frogs make the journey and how far they come. Anyone want to try it? If you do, please post here or E-Mail me so I can track it.
