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

lovebugsmallwood

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. 

The history of Guthrie and King County is the history of the cattle ranches of the region.  A plaque at a rest stop on US 82, just west of Guthrie, reads as follows.  “KING COUNTY.  Created Aug. 21, 1876, from Bexar County, whose diamond-shaped boundaries extended from the Rio Grande to the Panhandle to El Paso.  Named for William King, who died at the Alamo.  Chief industry, ranching, is reflected in its famous brands: 6666, Pitchfork, JY, SMS and Matador.  A county population of only 173 in 1890 was aided in formal organization by petitions signed by itinerants.  Names of favorite horses were also added.  Organization came on June 25, 1891.  In establishing county seat, cowboys voted for Guthrie, which won over Ashville, choice of the ranchers.”  Across the highway and up a rise from the courthouse in Guthie is the former 6666 supply house.  It now serves as a convenience store (including fuel) for the region.
