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.  As of 15-Aug-18, this particular TB had been moved by 49 cachers and had had been in circulation for 5.5 years (1992 days) since first placed in a cache.

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

Antarctica

There is no official flag of Antarctica since it is not a country nor governed by any authority.  In 2002, a flag was approved by the Antarctic Treaty Organization and is being used as an informal ensign of the continent. Many other designs for the flag have been suggested and are currently under consideration.  The designs suggested by Whitney Smith and Graham Bartram are the most eminent designs.
 
The Graham Bartram design uses the flag of the United Nations as its base pattern.  It is a simple white map of Antarctica on a blue setting.  The map essentially represents the continent's nonaligned status.  The Graham Bertram Flag was first hoisted on the continent in 2002.  When he planned the ensign, Bertram was cognizant of the converging territorial demands of Chile, the United Kingdom, and Argentina.  This version is probably the most famous design for the continent, proven by its wide presence on the web.
