Current Goal

The overall goal is to be discovered by geocachers to remind us all of the friends and fun that geocaching brings into our lives.

This TB is to travel ONLY AT EVENT CACHES where it will be passed from geocacher to geocacher IN PERSON. Do not leave this TB on a "TB table" at an event. If you are given this TB, your mission is to share it with another geocacher at the next event you go to.

This travel bug traveled with me from event to event until MWGB 2010. Between MWGB 2010 and MWGB 2011, this flower traveled with TSmola who graciously took "pinky" around the the US for many events and caching trips. It has since traveled with bretina on their trip to the Alien Trail event ( in August 2011. This flower has been sent out into the caching world.

You may "visit" physical caches with this, but please do not leave it there.

About This Item

It all started here

It all started with geocache GC1T3WX (A Shamrock Bones Quest) on July 17th, 2009.....and it carried over to Area 51 at MWGB 2009 in Wauseon, OH. I made mention at the Kayak cache above that I had never been done a kayak cache, much less ever been in a kayak. From there, I was volunteered to be one of two people seeking the cache, and to add to the hazing, I was told I had to use the pink kayak. Soon after this cache, pictures of me in the pink kayak were plastered over the internet.

Fast forward the tape to MWGB2009. TeamGeochef, who was in the other Kayak, found the pink carnation while out caching. Hey presented this to me at Area 51 to further the hazing of the pink kayak incident. I was told I have to wear this flower at every event I go to for the next year. So I figured why not play along and make it trackable. Guess this is what I get for being involved in the "Great Microwave Caper" of MWGB 2008.

See our travel bug listing to discover the story on that. And now you know the rest of the story.

There has been another chapter added to the story -
