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 28-Aug-17, this particular TB had been moved by 31 cachers and had been in circulation for 6.0 years (2188 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, protects the number 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 are appreciated.  I will re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

GeorgiaRepublic

Patch of flag of  Georgia Republic.  The official flag of Georgia  is the "five-cross flag", restored to official use on January 14, 2004, after a break of some 500 years.  It was previously the flag of the medieval Georgian kingdom and had been used as the official symbol of the United National Movement political party.  The Georgian national flag is a white rectangle, with in its central portion a large red cross touching all four sides of the flag.  In the four corners there are four crosses of the same color as the large cross.
 
The central element of the flag is the cross of St. George, the patron saint of Georgia. This cross is also the national flag of England (whose patron saint is also Saint George) and a component of the Union Flag.  According to the Georgian scholar Giorgi Gabeskiria, the four extra crosses were probably added during the reign of George V of Georgia, who drove out the Mongols.  Around that time, the new design was adopted as a variant of the Jerusalem cross, a symbol used by crusaders in the Holy Land, which likewise used a large central cross with four smaller "crosslets" in the four quadrants. The crosses are said to have represented the five Holy Wounds of Christ.
