GREAT TRAVEL BUG RACE OF 2020
I am a contestant in The Great Travel Bug Race of 2020, which is an event cache (GC8GMQG). My goal for this race is to travel to as many North American states as possible BEFORE the race ends at midnight on December 31, 2020. If I'm too big to fit in a cache container, please just log me as 'visiting' it and move me on to another cache. I would be ever so grateful. :-)

Travel bugs competing in this year long event will race, via drops and visits, from geocache to geocache, accruing both mileage and number of locations visited.
At the end of the race, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards (trophies/medals) will be presented to the top three finishers in each of the following three categories:
- Greatest distance traveled
- Most USA states visited
- Most countries visited
Several of us who grew up in the 1960s and 1970s have fond memories of watching the classic 1965 comedy film "The Great Race" when it was shown on TV every few years.
This film was written and directed by Blake Edwards who also directed the Peter Gun TV series, and the films: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Days of Wine and Roses, 10, and the Pink Panther series. Henry Mancini scored the music for this film, which featured many memorable tunes. He also collaborated with Johnny Mercer to produce for this film the hit song “The Sweetheart Tree.”
Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, Natalie Wood, Kennan Wynn, Peter Falk, Arthur O' Connell, and Vivian Vance were the main actors who made this movie so funny and memorable. Through the characters they portrayed we vicariously participated in their exciting adventure race around the world.
Most of us could not afford to participate in a real worldwide racing adventure such as the one shown in this film. However, we can participate in one vicariously, through our geocaching Travel Bugs! That is what this race is all about.
The race officially starts at THE GREAT TRAVEL BUG RACE OF 2020 Event (GC8GMQG) on Saturday, January 11, 2020 and ends at midnight on December 31, 2020.
