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.
Travel bug photos are appreciated. I will re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.
About This Item
This wooden maple leaf recalls the maple leaf on the national flag of Canada. Most people people living in the United States couldn’t name many cities in Canada, unless they live in the northern tier of states or Alaska. This series of “Canada” travel bugs brings attention to the largest metropolitan areas in that country.
Hamilton, Ontario, has a population of 721,053. Conceived by George Hamilton when he purchased the Durand farm shortly after the War of 1812, Hamilton has become the center of a densely populated and industrialized region at the west end of Lake Ontario known as the Golden Horseshoe. Since 1981, the metropolitan area has been listed as the ninth largest in Canada and the third largest in Ontario.
In pre-colonial times, the Neutral Indians used much of the land but were gradually driven out by the Five Nations (Iroquois) who were allied with the British against the Huron and their French allies.
Hamilton is home to the Royal Botanical Gardens, the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, the Bruce Trail, McMaster University and Mohawk College. The Canadian Football Hall of Fame can be found downtown right beside Hamilton City Hall and across town to the east, the Canadian Football League's Hamilton Tiger-Cats will begin playing at the new Tim Hortons Field in 2014, which is being built as part of the 2015 Pan American Games.
