Did a check of our travelers.....

 

Most miles and still traveling is TB2QAF3. It was released 2/14/09, has logged 70,237.6 miles, it was last logged 7/31/19.

 

Longest still traveling would be TBZ5KY. It was released in July 2006, its last log was on 7/13/19.

 

However, most of our travelers are long gone......

Hold your hats folks. My most traveled is TB is Starting Line, the end of the "starting line" stick from car rally. Released 2/29/12

TB48GKB as of today 2752919.5 Miles  This is an actual TB not a virtual. HQ says its in top 10, but haven't a good way to "scrub" virtual TB's from list.

Over 2 million miles is outstanding. I know I have picked up a couple that had traveled around the world which was pretty cool to imagine some of the people who had that travel bug in there possession at one time.  I wish Ground Speak would let us add favorite points to travel bugs & trackable's like they do for geocaches. I think there would be some pretty amazing trackable's circulating through out the game if geocachers could get some sort of recognition for their work.

We've seen enough fakers to realize it's already all about recognition.  Whenever stats are involved in any game, there's cheats.

I don't think these guys that hold on to another's property for years,  using it as their own private mileage tracker, should be "rewarded" for their nonsense.

I was just looking to see if I could find the oldest or longest traveled bug. my Oak island Geohound was released in 2007 and has logged over 33,000 miles. He started on the US East coast (NC) and has been to Alaska and back to the US, totally coincidentally stopped a few hundred yards from my parents' house in PA, took a Baltic cruise, and is now boppong around Switzerland and Germany. I love getting updates :-)

My New Mexico geocoin was released Nov 9 2005. Still alive.  Not especially high mileage, but the survival on this thing has been remarkable.
