This trackable is unusual for its survivorship. In the years 2010 to the present, collections of between 100 and 400 travel bugs have been annually released in the United States (95%) and Europe (5%). This travel bug is part of the mere three percent of the 2010-14 releases that had been retrieved and dropped off at least 25 times and had been active for at least five years, before going missing. As of 8-May-16, this particular TB had been moved by 34 cachers and had been in circulation for 6.1 years (2244 days) since release.
Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches. Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event. Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean and prevents tangling with other items. Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish. No permission is needed to leave the U.S.
Photos in the travel bug logs are appreciated. I will be re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.
About This Item
Officially adopted in 1925, the Oklahoma flag honors more than 60 groups of Native American Indians and all of their ancestors. The blue field is symbolic of a flag carried by Choctaw Indian soldiers during the civil war. The center shield, decorated with eagle feathers, is the traditional battle shield of an Osage Indian warrior. Two symbols of peace - the peace pipe and an olive branch - cover the buffalo hide shield. The four white crosses on that shield are Native American signs representing high ideals. The name OKLAHOMA was added to the flag in 1941.
