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 19-Sep-15, this particular TB had been moved by 35 cachers and had been in circulation for 5.6 years (2038 days).
Please drop this item in rural or Premium Member Only caches. Do not drop it in an urban cache or leave it behind at a caching event. Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; this prevents the chain and tag tangling with other items. Otherwise, take this travel bug anywhere you wish. No permission needed to leave the U.S.
