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 23-Feb-18, this particular TB had been moved by 36 cachers and had been in circulation for 6.2 years (2259 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

ElSalvador

The flag of El Salvador was inspired by the flag of the Federal Republic of Central America, and by the flag of Argentina, the country that sent one of the first fleets to help consummate the independence of the Central American republics from Spain.
 
There are three equal horizontal bands of blue (top), white, and blue with the national coat of arms centered in the white band. The blue bands symbolize the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, while the white band represents the land between the two bodies of water, as well as peace and prosperity. 
 
The coat of arms of El Salvador consists of a triangle, in which five volcanoes rise out of the sea. They symbolize the five member states of the United Provinces of Central America.  Above the volcanoes is a red Phrygian cap on a staff before a golden sun and the date 15 September 1821, Independence Day of El Salvador.  Over it is a rainbow.  Behind the coat of arms there are five flags representing the flags of the Federal Republic of Central America raised.  Under it, there is a scroll which states the national motto of El Salvador: Dios, Unión, Libertad (Span., "God, Union, Liberty").  All of this is surrounded by a laurel garland, which is tied together under the national flag. The garland is divided into 14 different parts, which symbolize the 14 Departaments, the Salvadoran subnational administrative units.  All this is surrounded by golden letters, which form the Spanish words REPÚBLICA DE EL SALVADOR EN LA AMÉRICA CENTRAL
