So come on what you waiting for?

Here are mine:

 

Beware the Bear: http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=1755260

Moose is Loose: http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=1755301

Eagles are Regal: http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=1755257

 

I am proud to say that all three have finally made it to their second caches, so their race is tied that way, but Bear has made it to Hawaii, which is a bit further than the others have gone...so far.

Hi there! This is my first TB. It is called Sunaware and here is it's story.

This TB let's you measure UV radiation. It want's to go to places where radiation is high (see attached map) to inform people that to much UV radiation is very harmful.

 

Measure the radiation by placing the TB in daylight for one minute at the spot where you discovered, picked-up of left the TB. The TB likes it when you log your UV reading together with the time. It would be great if you can support it with a photograph!

 

If you measure at least -middle-, the TB advices to look for shade or to use a high sun factor! Be careful with sunlight!

how about TB2JEP0, oh poo

 

Current GOAL: I'm part of the "Great TB Race 2009." Please move me quickly, and pictures earn extra credit (don't you want your picture with me?) I also earn points for every 50 miles I travel, crossing state/country lines, attending an event, earning a ftf, visiting an official checkpoint cache, exchange for another tb or geocoin. Please help me win, I don't wanna end up #2!

 

About this item:

Lately I've been feeling like poo! Not to be corny, (heaven forbid!,) but lately, I fell like life has "passed me" by. I've had so much s**** (that's right, stuff,) to deal with, that I'm always feeling flushed and strained. Let's face it, my life stinks! I talked it over with my dog friends, Logan and Heineken (Heine,) and decided I "gotta go." Please assist in my "movement" from cache to cache. You'll be happy you helped me in "the end."

 

and of course TB21PAH, rv there yet, a 31' rv

 

 

or TB152RM, millie the militant chicken

 

Current GOAL: revenge...and find my feathers

 

About this item:

I had it all...thighs of steel, firm breasts, and most of all...beautiful white feathers, white as new fallen snow and soft and delicate as , well, feathers. I was the pride of the hen house...and then it happened! It was another cold March night, and I had just finished preening myself, when I heard the voices, voices that will haunt my giblets forever. "Grab her Colonel, while Tyson and I gather up the others!" I don't know how I did it, but I managed to escape the chicken coop with my wings still attached...maybe it was fear, maybe it was some sort of divine intervention. I tried to cross the road (why you ask...that's another story,) but found myself in the hands of the big man...the man they called Popeye. I knew my life was about to end when popeye stuffed me into a cardboard bucket, along with a side of fries and a biscuit, but as long as I could cluck, I knew there was hope. I heard a car door slam, and as I began to lose consciousness, I heard the voices again, "Call Church and Zaxby, and tell them we're on our way." I don't know how many hours I was out, but I gradually started to come around. I was in a large room; white with a lot of stainless steel tables. The voices were gone, but something was wrong...I could feel it in my nuggets..that, and the cold...it was so cold! And then it happened...I tried to fly down from one of the stainless tables, but instead, fell to the ground. I rolled into the leg of the table, causing it to falls sideways, almost chopping off my head. Dazed, I stared into a distorted image of myself reflected from the table...and then it hit me...I had been plucked! I don't know how I found the strength, but I began to run, run like....well, a chicken with it's head cut off. I escaped into the night, leaving behind my plumage and my sanity. Now I need your help. I may be chicken, but I want to make life miserable for those pluckers. My goal is to travel wherever they may be, and show America, and the world, what they've done. Please get me to their headquarters, and tie or chain me to their gates so I can protest this travesty...and don't forget the pictures, lots of pictures showing corportate names and places. Move me from restaurant to restaurant (again, lots of pictures,) from cache to cache, from the south, to the north (even in the winter...everybody likes cold chicken!) I may never regain my feathers, but with your help, I can at least regain my dignity, and the dignity of others like me. Please don't let me end up, just another fowl joke

 

Millie has accumulated 21368 miles since released

 

I think these are the correct number to reference...someone pm or e-mail please, if not!

3 of my TBs:

 

Spiderman, image gimped to give it a tint like the movies:

http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=2170154

 

Cornish Pasty (yet to move):

http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=2170081

 

Drop of Guinness (I think there's a few of these out there):

http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=2170142

 

I hope your Drop of Guiness makes it further then my Red Hook TB. I received an e-mail from a sock puppet e-mail account that they were throwing my TB away. :laughing: They went on to lecture me that promoting alcohol on this family activity will not be tolerated. What if their child logged the TB and saw pictures of beer? I tried to reply and ask them to just mail me back my bug instead of throwing away something I paid for and they were stealing from me by throwing my property away. The e-mail came back undeliverable. ;)

Wow, that sucks. What area was that btw? Maybe I need to look out for it. Must be hard for that parent considering all the beer ads and commercials in existence - or do they just tie a blindfold around their kids head when they go outside?

It's been gone almost 2 years now, but if find myself in Mississippi I just might drop the copy tag with another Red Hook keychain in the last cache it was spotted in just out of spite. :laughing:

I could make a pathtag and mail them to a few active cachers in and around the last cache my TB was in. I can just see this person running all over town trying to collect 100 tags. :(

I have high jacked this thread long enough. To get it back on topic. This one is a plumb bob that I attached a TB tag to it with a piece of wire rope. Called it Benchmarker and have its picture taken hanging over Benchmarks.

Do you think the goal might be a bit ambitious?

Here's an on-going series of bugs that I started a little while ago, collectively I refer to them (in my head) as the "Useless Articles". They were somewhat inspired by the mini-series "The Lost Room" and the "Objects" from that series.

 

Artifact #627

752f0de5-e2c1-40e2-9c21-833b199d9f12.jpg

 

Artifact #731

db49bdc6-9e0b-4b53-a2f8-be4540fdf099.jpg

 

Artifact #1114

e4711714-59ca-4c24-ab86-8397ac9656fe.jpg

 

All of them have the following goal:

 

Instructions: Move to next available Containment Apparatus Camouflaged-to-Habitat Emplacement (C.A.C.H.E.).

 

And the tag line at the end:

 

In the future, we will be identified by the things we left behind; our lives and habits recreated from the evidence of our detritus. Our landfills will become archaeological gold mines and our trash, museum centerpieces. What will the scientist of tomorrow decipher from the objects in your garbage can?

WOW! I loved the guinness one!!! The token is the black round coin in the glass (acryllic)??

Do you know were I can see it more clearly? I love and collect coins, banknotes, medals, tokens (and militaria things, but that is an other story...), so I would love to see it!

 

Oh... you only get it when you visit the Guinness Brewery in Dublin??? huh... :drama:

And Guinness is such a nice beer!!!! :)

The only log on that says they discovered it, but then in the log they say they will move it a long. Might want to contact them to see if they have it.

 

I've sent three emails simply asking to log it into their possession. I understand that "real life" is more important than TBs. no reply.

Looks like they may have gotten busy with school. Give it a bit. I'm sure they'll check it after a while.
