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.

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
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.
The Polar settlement was the site of a long-standing postal station which existed from 1906 to 1951. The town was named after Polar Singletary, daughter of the county commissioner, S. H. Singletary. Early in the twentieth century there were about twenty farm families in the community; they were served by the Polar school until enrollment dropped during the Great Depression as farmers left, and the school was consolidated with that in Jayton. The village reported one business and a population of ten in the early 1950s. A community building was present in the 1970s. Polar remains on county maps of the today, but it is served by a blacktop road only from the south.
