Current GOAL

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.

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

About This Item

lovebugleather

This is one of a series of heart-shaped items obtained from different places and converted into travel bugs. They are named either for the places of their origin or for Texas Panhandle-South Plains towns with interesting names or histories.  

Muleshoe is a small city in and the county seat of Bailey County. It was founded in 1913 when the Pecos and Northern Texas Railway built an 88-mile line from Farwell to Lubbock through northern Bailey County. Muleshoe was incorporated in 1926. The population was 5,158 at the 2010 census. The name Muleshoe can be traced in the region to Henry Black who registered a brand on November 12, 1860. In 1877, Black purchased three houses on a 40,000 acres in Stephens County, naming it Muleshoe Ranch, supposedly for having found a mule shoe on the property. On the main street is a highly prized statue of a mule, a memorial to the animal's contributions in World War I. The city also hosts the World Championship Muleshoe Pitching Contest on the Fourth of July.
