Current Goal

This trackable has the goal to circulate more than five years and to be moved by at least 25 cachers. That is a target rate of five drops per year for five years, or a drop every 73 days.   As of 2-Sep-21 it had survived for 4.6 years and had been moved by 28 cachers, for an average release every 60 days. Keep it moving!

No permission is needed to leave the U.S. While in the U.S., please drop it in a Premium Member only OR a rural cache near a busy trail or road. Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event where there is no security. Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean, protects the number and prevents tangling with other items. Otherwise, take the trackable anywhere you wish.

About This Item

I have already released series of art-themed travel bugs based on works I have seen in person.  I will continue the series mostly including works I simply admire.  There will also be famous works or works by famous artists that I otherwise do not particularly care for, but they are….well,..famous.  My disdain extends to most Modern Art and a good amount from the Pop Art movement.

Gustav Klimt (July, 1862 – February, 1918) was an Austrian symbolist.  Klimt's primary subject was the female body, and most of his works are marked by a frank eroticism.  In addition to his figurative works, which include allegories and portraits, he painted landscapes.  Klimt was influenced by Japanese art and its methods.

Early in his artistic career, he was a successful painter of architectural decorations in a conventional manner.  As he developed a more personal style, his work was the subject of controversy that culminated when the paintings he completed around 1900 for the ceiling of the Great Hall of the University of Vienna were criticized as pornographic.  He subsequently accepted no more public commissions, but achieved a new success with the paintings of his "golden phase," many of which include gold leaf. 

The art work featured on this travel bug is an example of his gold leaf work and is decidedly not pornographic.  It is a portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer, completed in 1907.  In 2006 it was purchased for the Neue Galerie New York by Ronald Lauder reportedly for US $135 million, surpassing Picasso's 1905 Boy With a Pipe (sold May 5, 2004 for $104 million), as the highest reported price ever paid for a painting.  The history and contested ownership of the painting, during and after WWII, was the subject of the movie “Woman in Gold.”

Au départ... une envie de quasi finir le passage au vert des départements français et une possibilité au format super express en 2 jours en aout. Et oui, Nantes - Toulouse via Clermont - Issoire - Brioude ou encore Rodez... c’est presque le chemin le plus court.

De discussion en discussion... on se dit avec Zam’s qu’on pourrait partager le roadtrip... et c’est le démarrage du projet.

Choix dans la date - fixations des objectifs - envie de geo-tourisme ... les grandes lignes sont partagées : validation de 7 départements - passage sur des caches Larges - quelques Earthcaches de l’ami Fafahakkai et des Labs - le tout agrémenté de visite de quelques uns des plus beaux villages de France. 🤩🤩🤩🤩

En reprenant le format des roadbooks des raids Européens de la West Coast Team, je prépare le séjour sur les cinq jours et validons les hotels ensemble.

Day #2 - |week_day| |date_long| - Saint-Flour —> Rodez
Aujourd’hui, nous continuons notre route vers le sud et decouvrirons de superbes petits villages faisant partie des « plus beaux villages de France ».
L’occasion aussi de faire quelques lab ou quelques caches bien sympathiques avant d’arriver sur Rodez.
Comme hier, les couleurs de l’automne sont vraiment superbes et nous en prenons plein les yeux.

Merci |owner_name| pour la découverte de cette cache.

Ce petit message rédigé pas par moi-même est vraiment inutile et n'apporte rien au géocaching, toutefois en guise de signature de chacun de mes logs je rajouterai ce petit texte qui a pour seul et unique objectif d'obtenir puis, dans un second temps, d'améliorer le niveau du "Badge Diamant de l'Ecrivain" sur project-gc.com (Cela consiste à écrire en moyenne une centaine de mots par log publié). (C'est mieux qu'un "MPLC")
Tu n’es pas obligé de lire ce log jusqu’à la fin, mais il va me permettre de tenir mon objectif.
Et bla- bla -bla- bla, bla -bla- bla- bla, bla -bla-bla- bla, bla -bla -bla -bla. (J’avais besoin de quelques mots supplémentaires)
Merci d’avoir résisté et lu jusque-là……
GéoAmicalement
