Bjbez Posted February 4, 2004 Share Posted February 4, 2004 In preparation for the forthcoming Travel Bug Race from Sweden to South Africa and Back starting on the 14th of February 2004, I have a special request: What is the possibility to put "Travel Bug Hotel" caches at especially Johannesburg International and Cape Town International airports? The main purpose of the caches would be to serve as a drop-off and pick-up point for any visiting Travel Bugs. The caches should preferable: be accessable for a geocacher landing or departing who doesn't have access to a vehicle, not be a security risk for the airport, big enough to accomodate at least 10 or more Travel Bugs, still be discreet enough to prevent easy vandalisation. Travel Bug Hotels like described above will increase the Travel Bug traffic to and from South Africa because geocachers without much time and resources would also be able to participate in Geocaching. It will also relieve situations where Travel Bugs get stuck in South African geocaches. We want to make it as easy as possible for visiting Geocachers to share their Travel Bugs with us. I think it will make South Africa more "Geocacher friendly" destination for short-term visitors and other Geocachers who doesn't have the luxury of spending lots of time here. Could you please share your opinion on the feasability of Travel Bug hotels at airports, possible cache locations, if you are prepared to place a cache, or just if you think it is a good idea. Thanks for your inputs! Bjbez Quote Link to comment
