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


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. 

Peacock is an unincorporated community in Stonewall County.  It was developed by the Stamford and Northwestern Railway in 1909 and originally called Alluvia.  In 1910 it took the name of J. W. Peacock, the first postmaster, who moved his store one mile south from Lingo to the townsite.  By 1910 Peacock had a school, a gin, a store, a church, a bank, and 100 people. A tornado devastated the town's business buildings in 1914.   Although the wind was strong enough to blow feathers off chickens, all but two residents avoided injuries by seeking cover in storm cellars.  The population of Peacock reached 350 in 1920. In 1940 the town had 216 residents, a school, two churches, and eight businesses. The school closed in 1964, and by 1980 the population had fallen to 125, although the town still had a post office, a store, a gas station, a gin, and a blacksmith shop.  There is a cache in the center of town.
