Retrieve It from a Cache 12/16/2003 Atlas Patt retrieved it from Mine road bug office New Mexico   Visit Log

I was the intended recipient of this Travel Bug, which started its travels in Maine. When I heard it was in New Mexico, I was too impatient to wait any longer for it to make its way down to Silver City, and I drove up (eight hours) to retrieve it. Thank you to everyone who helped transport it across the U.S.! The Moosehead beer caps were a humorous addition. I'm happy to think that its last month on the road was spent within view of Shiprock. Thanks again, everybody, geocachers and geocaching.com, for all the fun and for facilitating the connection between emillan in Yarmouth and me.
