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 26-Aug-17, this particular TB had been moved by 47 cachers and had been in circulation for 7.0 years (2555 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
In 1958, the Alberta Government authorized the design of an official flag. On 1 June 1968, the Flag of Alberta, Canada was adopted. The flag has the provincial shield of arms in the centre of a royal ultramarine blue background. The shield represents the natural resources and beauty of the varied of Alberta landscape: the Rocky Mountains and their foothills, the grass prairies, and the cultivated wheat fields. The St George's Cross is an allusion to the arms of the Hudson's Bay Company, which once controlled what is now Alberta. The provincial colors, adopted in 1984, are blue and gold (deep yellow); they are also referred to as ‘Alberta blue’ and ‘Alberta gold,’ appearing on the flag/shield in the sky/background and wheat background, respectively.
