Current GOAL

This trackable is unusual for its survivorship. In the years 2010 to the present, collections of 100 to 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 31-May-17, this particular TB had been moved by 34 cachers and had been in circulation for 6.8 years (2479 days).

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.

Travel bug photos in the logs are appreciated.  I will re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item


This is a bookmark converted to a travel bug. It was purchased at the Mid-America All Indian Center in Wichita, KS. The name of the native shown here is unknown. His photographer, A. Franklin Randall (1854-1916), is only just marginally better known. However, many of Randall’s Chiricahua Apache subjects are famous, Geronimo, Mangas and Mangas Coloradas. The Chiricahua formerly lived in area of southwestern New Mexico and southeastern Arizona in the United States, and in northern Sonora and Chihuahua in Mexico.

There were several loosely-affiliated groups of Apaches that came to be called Chiricahuas, but in reality, they were not a single band. It is incorrect to lump them all together, but the bands that we call the Chiricahuas today have a combined history--they intermarried, lived and fought together occasionally. They formed short-term as well as longer alliances among themselves so there is a natural tendency to consider them as one people. There were also many other somewhat less-related Apachean groups ranging all over eastern Arizona and the American southwest, including Texas.
