Current GOAL

Red needs to head East to Arkansas or Sylva, NC to hook up with Nana. Nana and Red need your help. Nana leaves NV before Easter to travel to Dallas for a visit with Steven's mom, before heading to Murfreesboro, AR and Moon Shine Creek Campground in Sylva NC.
Nana & Papa will be working in the park through October so Nana sure hopes Red can find his way.
There was a cache already at Moonshine Creek Campground and Nana has  set Halla's maza What to traveling to Michigan to find her granddaughter. This is a very fine cache box for travel bugs and she hopes Red can find his way there. GCNQRN is the place for Red to head, Please!

Red started from Dayton NV and wanted to beat Nana's Grandson back to Plano TX. He is getting on a Plane to go home to Plano on August 19th, 2008. Please help! I have along way to go and can't afford the price of gas.
Oops, Steven beat me! but now he's planning to come back to Nevada, so I don't want him to run circles around me! Plano Texas here I come!

June 3, 2012. It looks like red is within miles of his target (Plano, Texas) and it only took 4 years, but he went missing for awhile, and probably has many a story to tell about his journey.  Unfortunately, Red will never get to tell Steven his tall tales.
On Valentines Day 2012, Steven was standing beside a rural road in Denton Tx, waiting for traffic to clear so he could cross the road with his friend. He was hit from behind by a 1 ton Dually. He died hours later, 4 days before his 17th birthday.Steven's Memorial page

So, come back to me Red! Head for the hills to Dayton, NV. When you get closer, I'll set up a rendezvous place for us!

About This Item

Who is faster? Steven or Red?

I love little matchbook vehicles and this little red Ferrari seemed a good choice to Race Steven back to Plano. TX. Win or lose, this little racer wants to see all he can, so give him a ride when you can.

Retrieve It from a Cache 07/24/2013 k217 retrieved it from Moonshine Creek North Carolina   Visit Log

As Many know, My grandson Steven set the Red in motion the summer he was 13, while visiting in NV. Red has been out in the world for five years this month. He has traveled over 20,000 miles, been through at least 20 states, and went to a Mexican resort town.
On Valentines day, 2012, Steven was waiting to cross a Tx country road and was hit and killed by a truck, just 4 days before his 17th birthday. Many people have been helping Red find is way to me. We've retired and are workamping at Moonshine Creek Campground in NC this summer, so when we learned there was already a cache here, it was the perfect place for Red to come home to and I thank everyone for their efforts.
Geocache messages have never gone to my spam box, but for some reason I checked my spam box and saw someone had picked up Red that morning from the campground and I didn't know he had arrived. I contacted Todd, explained Red's story and asked if he could help me get Red Back. He was going to mail Red to me, but tonight there was a knock on my door. Todd delivered Red to my hands himself. I had no idea getting Red back was going to be so emotional. Thank you, everyone!
