Going Somewhere Slowly: 2006 Tb Race

Recommended Posts

Still looking forward to seeing some race TB in the EC - if I recall correctly only 2 have zipped through here.

 

Speed services - now only R37.50 ;)

That's not cricket! :(

 

Open to interpretation, but in the spirit of TB racing I hope we don't see anymore of these, there's been one!

I was thinking of establishing a "Stargate" cache here in South Africa, but due to the number of users around, I don't think it has merrit yet; Maybe I am wrong, but that should be a different topic.

 

However, how would a Stargate affect our Travel Bug Race?

I see a stargate as a legit mechanism as it is part of the game. Posting of TB's in a race outside of this would be frowned upon. However stargates are generally used for overseas travel. We had this discussion late last year and some folks were going to concentrate on some TB hotels..... mmmmmmm

For local use only, can I then call it a "TaxiGate" in stead of a Stargate. :lol:

Dude has violated Rule 16 of the Race. Points for visiting controlling flight will not be allocated for the visit on 15/05/2006.

It is now stuck with TOXICSOX since 8/03/06 and it is not being released!

Maybe this is just a plot :wub::wub: mmmmmmm.........I wonder............. :ph34r:

:wub: Oh dear. Anyone know Toxicsox? Doesn't seem to be particularly active. Bit rude of someone to make off with a well marked TB.

 

Seems he/she has cached with clifford & donovan see if you can track this cacher down through them, although they're not that active either, but perhaps some of the local Capetonians have had contact with them.

Seems to be quite a decent chap, maybe he is just off the geocaching scene for a while... "Give him a-nudder chance!" :smile:

Seems like some TB's are starting to make moves... Speed Wobble's position started to look a little wobbly.

You are just jealous... :lol:

 

Not to fear! Speed Wobble will soon be travelling to Botchebello and then onward to the fair Cape who supposedly had a fantastic day of weather today.

Any help to get TB Kayak Racer back to Gauteng will be much appreciated! It looks like the road to the Eastern Cape goes through here.

 

Thanks!

At least one road to the eastern cape goes through Joburg, via Burgersdorp :ph34r: - This weekend in fact, I might just pay a visit to Magnanimous before I go and see which bug is worthy... hehe. Looks like hardly any bugs have been to PE. Part 3 of QFC

There’s a good chance I may travel to Botshabelo this coming weekend which means I could drop off some race bugs in the area and perhaps collect Speed Wobble.

Ok, I get it... so where do you want that Rooster to go :ph34r: ... hehe

Just kidding, would love for Speed Wobble to be picked up, and I will see about that Rooster :ph34r:

Greetings people.

 

Can anybody assist DUDE from shangri la to PE and back to Capetown, he seems to be stuck there now and i would love for him to make it to Capetown.

 

There are many kind people out there whom i know want to help this poor surfer dude. :unsure:

While you are there (at Shangri-La), Rumpus Compass would like to move as well :unsure:

I wonder if the Rat is prepared to offer an incentive to get the rooster to move from Lower Virgin Bush? Not that there is much left after my Jack Russell got hold of him.

We will be heading down the Garden Route on Saturday - not sure of the final arrangements, but am hoping to rescue some bugs from Cape Town and bring back to PE.

If any bug owners have special requests then large bribes will be accepted, alternatively we'll grab what we can and deposit in PE.

I see that Machu Pichu (?) Flute is near PE, would have loved to take him to CT, but wont get to him before the weekend. Anyway Vespax is no stranger to the EC, and will probably move the bug himself.

If anyone gets near Worcester, Shail Trail, please retrieve Rumpus Compass and maybe this guy can move towards the EC. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink <_<

Hi All,

 

We'll be in Cape Town from the 6th - 11th August, before flying back to Joburg.

 

If any bugs need a lift up north, just let me know times & locations.

 

Cheers

Back to the topic at hand... Noddy has been working hard at keeping the racing TB movements up to date. Currently this is what their tracks around the country look like...

 

20080802SATBRace2006.jpg

 

You can check select the google earth map with all of the TB stops or per TB at Track the 2006 TB Race. After a long run at the top of the milage ranking Speed Wobble has been topped by that Rabbit Rooster who has now travelled 4869.84 km in South Africa. Speed Wobble follows at 4561.40 km.

 

The above map was pulled from All TBs in the race

 

Enjoy the race

I'd love to help the TBs outside Cape Town, but my time for caching is limited. If DUDE & Rumpus could find their way to Cape Town before Monday then I will do my best to get them to PE.

Please help Rumpus get to Cape Town, I will pay bribes if necessary.

Well we had a fun, if rushed, trip to CT. Managed to find a balance between caching and other holiday activities. Also managed to grab Scallywag, who will now be placed in PE.

 

Thanks to Discombob for suggesting other quick caches and meeting us for lunch - sadly the weather was about to turn for the worse, so not much caching.

 

Also sadly, I could not get to the other race TB's :laughing: , hope they find their own way!

My surfer boy has been dealt a cruel blow, totally below the belt he was placed in Stoddard's demise by Team TGF. So this has him shouting for HELP Please can someone help him, I fear his chances are diminishing with the blow he has been dealt. So for the love of caching somebody please help the guy out so he has a chance. <_<
