Cool Tb Photos

Recommended Posts

Monkey Buisness TB's mission was to get into mischeif. We caught him running with scissors.

This Hannah Montana microphone TB hopes to visit a concert of hers.

Since we missed the concert here by about 2 years we found the next best thing.

A poster... thanks to our jr. explorer!

I usually don't do playground hides but this one was empty and it had cool play equipment. Purple Ducky is in the serpents mouth.

Here are a few that I've taken over the past few years that I like:

The Bobcat TB was launched by a Cub Scout Troop. We took a photo of the Bobcat with some of the animals from our collection that are commonly found in South Carolina.

This Bear TB was launched by a Boy Scout who said the Bear wanted to meet other animals. We thought he might appreciate a ride.

These were at a place called Creek Park in Whittier, Ca. There were two caches here, one at each end of the park. A neighborhood park with a creek down the middle.

This was once a run-down cemetery that the city of Whittier converted into a neighborhood park. It gives you an odd feeling to know that while you are enjoying the park, you are really walking on graves. There is a dedication wall that lists all of the people buried here.

This was called Cache Jail and located in a bush on a lonely hiking trail in the Puente Hills, Ca. I took me a long time to spot it even though it was right in front of me.

John Greenleaf Whittier was a turn-of-the-century poet, philosopher and quaker. And the founder of the city of Whittier. This is part of a mural showing scenes of early Whittier.

Historic marker at junction of hwy 178 and the famous Pacific Crest Trail. Cache is in the bare-looking tree at about one-o'clock. I thought I was going to have a cardiac climbing to it.

A cool relief map of the Antelope Valley and places within it. It was located at a vista point where a virtual cache was.

Not a TB, but the condition of my head after a day caching on my bicycle when I forgot to wear a hat. Ouch!

Not a TB, but homemade cookies that a cacher made and brought to an event in Corona Del Mar.

This was about ten feet from the cache, near Silverwood Lake, Ca.

The cache was under one of those rocks.

This cache was hanging out of sight from fishing line and dropped into a storm channel. A bit of a shock to pull the line and find this.

This cache was located near a pizza place, Murrieta, Ca.

One of the first TBs we ever found, the Great CATsby, a stuffed cat who wanted to see things with "CAT" in the name. When we found him, he was freezing and damp in a local cache, so we put a hat on him, packed his suitcase and got him a camera....

 

601f04ea-1559-4755-b8eb-2d2ebe16e98e.jpg

 

So we took him somehwere warm, the Eastern Caribbean, on a cruise ship. Here he is lounging on the Lido deck with hamburger and fries with no CATsup!

Here he is enjoying a view of CAT Island, Bahamas.

Here he is taking a CAT nap in our suite, all that eating and sightseeing tired him out!

 

89451b5a-8d96-4236-b32e-f2d4374b222c.jpg

 

When we returned home, we took him CATching, I know, it's a stretch! He found his first cache...

...and there was even a TB inside, a cute little monkey!

We had so much fun with the Great CATsby, he traveled thousands of miles with us!

I just have to resurrect this thread. I love TB's and I think we need to take more pictures of them in their travels. I made a series of TB's from 10 deputies in California killed in the line of duty. This was one of them.

I try my best to take photos of TBs before I drop them - my gallery has lots of them! Here are a few favorites:

 

I just like the perspective on this one:

8078edb8-39ed-4d59-b36b-45cf5645323e.jpg

 

This TB was supposed to visit train-related caches - this spot was perfect, AND had a cache there too!:

3bcac946-3300-4b60-b87a-7c7e507256ed.jpg

 

This is one of my own TBs - took this before dropping it off on its journeys:

This TB was in a race from England to get to a specific cache in Berkeley, CA - "The Slippery Slope." I took it to that cache and got a photo of the little car ready to descend the slope!:

I'm glad you bumped this thread - I hope it reminds people how much fun it is to take pictures of TBs in cool places and how much owners appreciate seeing them! :D

This is what we posted for Fawley Owl (back as Team Muppet)

"Took some pictures of Fawley Owl with the cache, and soon more will come as soon as we develop the disposible camera that our team member Cookie Monster took to school with her."

Any travel bugs or geocoins that I pick up get treated to at least one adrenaline-charged adventure along with anything else I'm doing.

Here's an F22 Raptor travel bug flying with me under one of my parachutes.

And going to a New Orleans Saints football game.

Another airplane travel bug, right after getting down from a 14,000 foot skydive with me at the Gold Coast Skydivers drop zone in Lumberton, Mississippi. Yeah, we jumped out of that plane right there. Then it started raining and the skydiving day was over.

 

fd629a61-1505-4014-9811-5befe8165e1c.jpg

I came across this travel bug that is the same car as my little track car, so they had to have their picture taken together.

You know, as fun as it is to post pictures of travel bugs, I really like to post videos of their adventures. Here are a few of the recent ones:

 

Exhibition jump into a C-Spire sponsored, televised local high school football game...

 

Alabama state skydiving record attempt and other jumps...

 

I arranged a private track day for me and some friends at the Talladega Gran Prix Raceway road course. Several travel bugs came along for the ride...

Visit link

 

A few more jumps. One of the travel bugs got to come out of the fanny pack I carry them in and get some time in front of the camera at the end of this video...

 

Another exhibition jump, onto a tiny little spot on a downtown street for the opening ceremony of the Mississippi State Games...

 

Check out my YouTube channels for more videos. Search for "GCJumper" or "GeoTBJumper".

This spring I found a travel bug that was a small painting of Mount Rainier here in Washington State. It just happened that I was working on a puzzle cache utilizing this photo of The Mountain to locate the cache.

 

fe5a5412-fb7e-48e8-b0da-98a56eba6784.jpg

 

When we arrived at ground zero the sky was overcast and our view of Mount Rainier was obscured but the travel bug filled in perfectly!
