The Travel Bug GeoChallenge

Posted in Travel Bug Race on Oct 04, 2008

Well, the gauntlet has been thrown, and the challenge has been accepted! We’re not about to allow some trash-talkin’, cache bloggin’ photog think, or even dream, that he can beat us at a race! We come from a long line of Travel Bug racers and we’ve got Travel Bug racin’ in our blood!

To bring you up to speed on The Travel Bug GeoChallenge (yes, the pun was intended), we, and a few other Geocaching bloggers, have been challenged by P.J. from over at the HooHaa Blog to a Travel Bug race. The winner of the race (that will be us!) will be determined by which Travel Bug travels the most distance in this year long race.

In addition to ourselves and the L’il HooHaa, Kiss My Cache, Hick@Heart, HeadHardHat, EMC, the Geocats, Gunny’s Cache and late entry TripCyclone have taken up the challenge.

Obviously, we would have enjoyed having a bit of competition but at least we’ll have a few laughs as we watch them eat our dust! And apparently there are a few more that have been challenged but there has been no sign of them yet. We think that they are just too chicken to come forward, especially since they found out we were in the race!

Enuff for now, we’ll keep you posted as the challenge unfolds.

Keep on cachin’!

    Oh fine.
    No one’s challenged ME yet… that’s ’cause I would win just taking it from cache to cache myself! LOL

    What?! You haven’t? LOL! Appears that the L’il HooHaa is AFRAID of you! It’s obvious he’s trying to stack things in his favor, what with the other bloggers he’s challenged. I doubt he thought we would throw our hat in the ring, if he did he wouldn’t have ‘invited’ us either. Methinks it’s time you did a little challenge yourself, let’s see what he’s made of!

    I think you’ve missed one detail that will prove to be fatal to your racer. This race is in miles not kilometers. No fair using your wacky metric system to try and move ahead in the race. I know my bug won’t go anywhere but that won’t stop me from keeping in the trash talking.

  4. P.J. -

    Oh, don’t worry, gents… the final details are being worked out. I just need to know when everyone has figured out when they got their bugs. Everyone challenged hasn’t responded over my way yet.

    And everyone out there wasn’t challenged. It was basically a bunch of scape goats I knew I could wax! :)

    Wax? Laugh? Ha! We’ll see who’s laughing in a year.

    Oh, by the way, one of my coins just made a short little 6,500 mile hop over the weekend. Ahhhhh; the joys of caching with military pilots….

    Awww, man, using kilometers was our secret weapon! Dang! Dang! Dang! Mmmmm… plan B… what’s plan B…. do we have a plan B?!!!

  7. P.J. -

    Plan B: Lose. :P

  8. P.J. -

    Oh and another has joined the race. More for me to beat! Final rules coming soon (waiting to hear from one or two others!)
