What is a Travel Bug?Oct 02, 2007

A Travel Bug is simply a Geocaching tracking tag which is usually attached to an item. The item becomes a hitchhiker that travels with the Travel Bug. The purpose of the tracking tag is so that the Travel Bug can be tracked as it moves towards its ‘goal’.

When a Travel Bug is created it is usually given a goal by its owner for others to try and complete. Goals can range from a specific purpose, like bringing attention to a great cause such as diabetes or simply to travel the world.

When you find a Travel Bug you can take it from the cache and move it to another, helpig it on its journey. Prior to placing it in another cache you log the pickup on and then when you place it you log it again. This keeps a record of its movement where you, the owner, and others can watch its progress.

Travel Bugs are just another part of the fun in Geocaching!

Keep on cachin’!

An Engaging CacheOct 01, 2007

Here’s a cute little story that was recently posted on – apparently Geocacher ‘navaid’ proposed to his girlfriend in a unique way.

He and his girlfriend found a Cache and while she was logging the find he slipped an engagement ring in the swag and asked her to take her pick. She, of course, chose the diamond. Then he asked her to marry him and she said yes.

What really caught our eye on this one was a line he wrote in the Cache log:

“Thanks for the cache – left ring, took fiancée, signed log.”

This really cracked us up. :)

It will certainly be a great story to tell to their grandchildren!

Congrats to navaid and his new fiancée! All the best!
