Geocache Description:

This is the Kustom Kacher's Third cache. It is a Traditional Cache. We put it out as the start to a Travel Bug race. There is room for 4 or 5 small Travel Bugs and a few small trade items. Oh and you can roll granny right up to it! When this cache was placed it had four TB and a FTF Bag. Once all the TB’s have moved on I will fill with a few Trade Items.

This cache was put out for the Kustom Kachers to start a Travel Bug Race. It is a race to see who can reach 5000 points. By visiting as many caches a quickly as possible. Points are awarded for the following caches and or Pictures.

Other point rules:
If the cache you TB has gone in to has the word Start, Stop, Pit stop or Go the following apply.

Start = Green Flag, only counts at the start of the race the next 3 caches are double the points
Stop = Red Flag, the next 3 caches are only worth half the points
Pit stop = Yellow Flag, the next 3 caches are triple the points
Go = Green Flag, the Next 3 caches are double the points

If your TB is already on a 3 cache multiplier and it land in another one. The new one takes over and is the multiplier you use.
