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

woodennumber9

9 (nine /ˈnaɪn/) is the natural number following 8 and preceding 10.   The origin of the 9 integers can be attributed to the ancient Indian civilization, and was adopted by subsequent civilizations in conjunction with the 0.  In the beginning, various Indians wrote 9 similar to the modern closing question mark without the bottom dot.  They later started curving the bottom vertical line coming up with a 3-look-alike.  The Nagari continued the bottom stroke to make a circle and enclose the 3-look-alike, in much the same way that the @ character encircles a lowercase a.  As time went on, the enclosing circle became bigger and its line continued beyond the circle downwards, as the 3-look-alike became smaller. Soon, all that was left of the 3-look-alike was a squiggle. The Arabs simply connected that squiggle to the downward stroke at the middle and subsequent European change was purely cosmetic.

This numeral resembles an inverted 6.  To disambiguate the two on objects and documents that can be inverted, the 9 is often underlined, as is done for the 6. Another distinction from the 6 is that it is often handwritten with a straight stem.

"A stitch in time saves Nine."  The word "K-9" pronounces the same as canine and is used in many U.S. police departments to denote the police dog unit.  Despite not sounding like the translation of the word canine in other languages, many police and military units around the world use the same designation.  Someone dressed "to the nines" is dressed up as much as they can be.  In baseball, nine represents the right fielder's position.  The number of innings in a regulation, non-tied game of baseball.  The number of players on the field including the pitcher.  The number worn by Roy Hobbs in the movie The Natural.  The score of a forfeit in a league where the game would ordinarily last nine innings is 9-0.
