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

Snowflakewooden

This series of “snow” travel bugs each commemorates a cold US city.  I am not sure how one determines the coldest US cities in the winter.  Does one rank the record lows, lowest monthly averages or lowest winter averages?   Many of the cities would appear on all three lists.  Rather than try to assign a ranking, I will simply include some cities or hamlets from each of the criteria.  Regardless of ranking, we have to  acknowledge that all of the locations identified in this series are really, really cold places in winter.

Island Park, Idaho is now a resort area known for its skiing and snowmobiling in winter and fishing and wildlife viewing in the summer.  It is at about 6,293 feet above sea level and a half-hour's drive from Yellowstone National Park.  That helps explain its sometimes extremely cold weather, as the temperature dropped to 60 degrees below zero here on Jan. 18, 1943.

Retrieve It from a Cache 6/1/2017 Weeman7201 retrieved it from Severn View TB Hotel Southern England, United Kingdom   Visit Log

My first TB find! Woohoo. I ran the Severn bridge to discover this and was unsure what to do with it at first. Quickly read up on instructions and will drop off at another cache very soon. I left the others in situ as I thought others would appreciate the find. Brill spot for a cache I must say and I like the bark lid. Nice 1 👍
