Current GOAL

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to move this travel bug on the shortest route possible to get to Lenoir North Carolina.

Just a short time ago, in a Galaxy close to home, on a small moon orbiting a small red planet in the Alpha Centaurii star system,  monitoring stations began to pick up radio signals from a small blue planet in the western spiral arm of the Milky Way galaxy. Specifically the signals were from Golden Oldies 102.4FM out of Whichita Kansas.  After listening for several years, a group of 8 aliens had heard enough and decided to take action. They loaded a small Orion class star ship with as many cans of Floovian Blue Juice (their most favourite drink - and also used to tune their radios) that would fit in the cargo hold, and blasted off their home moon in search of this little blue planet, and the radio station therein.  Their mission:  to get the station to play "just a little more Lynyrd Skynyrd" because they play " a little too much Menudo".

When they bumped into the Horse Head Nebula, a heat tile was knocked off the ship.  Just as they entered the atmosphere, disaster struck.  The cargo bay doors burst open in the heat.  The entire supply of Floovian Blue Juice was blown out of the ship and burned up in the atmosphere.   The aliens took to the escape pods, and were soon scattered across the planet.  The ship crashed near Lenoir, a small town in western North Carolina.

Stranded on a foreign planet, and the only bottle of Floovian Blue Juice being an emergency supply squirreled away in the captains quarters on the crashed ship, each alien is now locked in a race to the juice.  The first one back will get to get enjoy the last bottle of Floovian Blue Juice, and tune into "a little more Lynyrd Skynyrd" on 102.4FM out of Kansas City. The rest will be cursed to drinking water, and trying to recall the memory of "a little too much Menudo".

Speed, as you can imagine, is of the utmost importance.

About This Item


This trackable is one of eight identical trackables released around the world (semi-)simultaneously.  They are now in a race to get back to their point of origin, Lenoir North Carolina, USA. It is an experiment to see how many of these trackables I can get back, and how long it takes.

The trackable itself is a 1 inch glow-in-the-dark alien attached to a trackable dog tag.

You can track the progress of the race here:

Picked this guy up and brought him home. This bug wins the race. Thanks all who helped bring him from Australia back to Lenoir. This was a fun race :)

Dropped in Crossroads TB Motel

  • Home at last...Lenoir, North Carolina Glad to take #8 the rest of the way.  A long journey has come to an end.
  • Big Boy.  But Not Really. My instant excitement at seeing the unmistakable silhouette was quickly dashed as I remembered the nearest Big Boy was actually in Ohio.  Then the pink pig restaurant came into view and it was so.  Made for a great last photo op before home...
  • Crossroads TB Motel, Lenoir, North Carolina Here.

Not Blue Juice

  • Coca Cola Wondering how they can claim "everywhere" when you can't find it outside of this solar system, let alone the Milky Way.

Spending the day wisely watching The Masters before we hit the road north tomorrow.

  • 2013 Masters Watching Marc Leishman tear it up in Augusta...comfortably from the couch, in the air conditioning.
  • 2013 Masters Part Deux Day three leaderboard.  Skynard on the radio, hanging with Wichita natives, talking about their favorite station from home - Golden Oldies 102.4FM and how Angel Cabrera only really plays well in big tournaments.
