Retrieve It from a Cache 12/1/2002 Uptonhouse retrieved it from Twin Columns Oklahoma   Visit Log

I picked up the Main Moose Travel bug during a night time raid of the Twin Columns cache in Tulsa. Twin Columns is tough at night so I thought I might try and get the Moose out of that particular Ghetto and move him just a little further South and West.

How long does it take for a moose to get to Silver City? The TB is in great shape and about to go on quite a trip. I will update when I get back home.
