Current GOAL

Gene and Carola Gough were my great-grandparents! They were married for 65 years. They lived all over the Pacific coast of the United States, and also in Alaska. At ages 61 and 58, they moved to Africa for three years. In honor of their life and adventures, please keep this cache moving all around the world.

See (visit link) to learn more about them, to view photographs of Carola's beautiful paintings, to watch video footage from their travels in Africa, and to read their travel diaries from their adventures. You can even take a tour of her virtual reality art gallery inside of Second Life!

About This Item

The Gene & Carola Traveling Memorial

As a symbol of Gene & Carola's commitment to each other and to their descendants, I would like it to pass through the areas they so frequently visited to see their family:

[ ] Wenatchee, WA, where she was born. According to her birth certificate, she was born at the corner of Cascade St. and Spokane St, which still exists*. It would be awesome to have picture of someone holding the travel bug at that location!
[ ] Orosi, CA, where he was born.
[ ] Oakland CA, where her son Kerry and his wife Leila live, along with many of his children and their grand-children.
[ ] Long Beach City College, where she studied art.
[ ] Compton City College, where she also studied art.
[ ] Marietta, GA, where her son Gene and his wife Peggy live.
[ ] Salida, CO, where her daughter Linda and her husband Wayne live, and where she lived for eight years.
[ ] Portland, OR, where her grand-daughter Kathi and her husband Rick and son Danny live.
[ ] White Plains, NY, where her grand-daughter Kelly lives.
[ ] Wappingers Falls, NY, where her grandson Kevin lives.
[ ] Poughkeepsie, NY, where her grand-daughter Kara lives with her companion Lew and their son Aiden.
[ ] Anchorage, Alaska, where they lived for many years.

After that I'd like to see it traveling all over the world, just like Gene and Carola did! Please remember to go to (visit link) and sign her guestbook!
