A Travel Bug for the departed.

Recommended Posts

I have an inactivated Travel Bug in an envelope with instructions for my partner to have the TB number inscribed on my headstone when I am no longer around. 

 

That way I can contribute to my favorite hobby after I am no longer around. 

 

Has anyone else heard of this or seen this before?

We've talked about a similar thing in the Waymarking forums. Just think of all the visitors you'll get!

Yep.  :)     

Curious though...  How will anyone know it's there to log it ?   It's not like someone can lug it around either...

If someone's leaving the code at events and things,  hopefully you realize that "saw this on/at..." is the closest to a eulogy many will give you.  :D

 

I went as far as to install a shelf in my marble bench (didn't want a headstone) for a cache container.  Just waiting for a "drawer".

The grounds has since changed their policy, so now anyone who still smokes will have an ashtray. ..

Good question. 

A Travel Bug page would have to be created. 

Now if virtual caches were allowed it would be much easier. 

I have to have another 25 years left in me though. 

 

My initial desire was already vetoed: have my body dumped in the woods to degrade naturally with a toe tag reading "he was not murdered, he died naturally"

I've gone the other way. My older sister passed away several years ago.

I published a travel bug to visit the places she would have liked to go.

Releasing trackables for highly personal/sentimental reasons may not be a great idea, given the overall lack of care that seems to be taken by a reasonable number of cachers.
