Current GOAL

This travel bug has the modest goal to circulate more than five years and to be moved by at least 25 cachers.  As of 31-Jul-19 it had survived for 5.2 years, but it had been moved by only 16 cachers. How far can it get?  Keep it moving!

Please drop it 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, protects the number and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Travel bug photos are appreciated and will be re-posted here.

About This Item

OrvietoPinocchio

I am always watching for something I can convert into a travel bug.  This item was purchased in April 2014 in a gift shop in Orvieto, one of the hill towns in central Italy.  Pinocchio is an Italian folk tale that was made famous in the US by Walt Disney and others.  The story is about a puppet that wanted to be a real boy and whose nose would get longer when he told a lie.

Orvieto was a center of the Etruscan Civilization for almost a thousand years before the Romans.  When Rome began to expand, this city, perched on a stoney plateau (see photo), held off Julius Ceasar and the Roman army for two and a half years.  When the city was eventually overrun, survivors were relocated elsewhere and evidence of the Etruscans destroyed.

Wow...another whirlwind weekend. You know it's great when you can't remember where you have been...over 1k miles traveled...mainly to Wisconsin and back...but who knows where we were during it. Caching in torrential rain, taking so many pictures of cars with trackables...working some time at the trackable table and discovering MANY more trackables...people wearing trackables...and like myself...people who are trackables too! What a great trip. Thank you for sharing the TB with me...and after seeing so many, and going a little crosseyed please forgive me if I log yours twice! (it does only count once)
