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

Zulu was never really a town, but it was the first non-native gathering place in what would become Hansford County.  It was named by English brothers James and Robert Cator who in 1873, among others, were hunting buffalo.  As the buffalo were slaughtered, and the Red River Wars removed the Comanche into Indian Territory, the brothers and their sister Clara decided to try ranching. They settled in along North Palo Duro Creek and built a house. They were soon joined by others.  They named their house and store the Zulu Stockade, perhaps for the prairie resemblance to the Zulu-lands of South Africa.

In 1876 the Texas legislature marked off Hansford County but there were still so few people the new county was administered by authorities in Wheeler County.  The 1880 the United States census counted eighteen people living there.  In 1887, there was a stage stop at Hansford, on the old Tascosa-Dodge City Trail.
