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

goldaquablueglassround

This is one of a series of large beads obtained from different places and converted into travel bugs.  They are named for Texas towns with interesting names or histories.

Uncertain, also known as Uncertain Landing, is on Caddo Lake in northeastern Harrison County. The site was once known as Uncertain Landing, so named, according to one local tradition, because of the difficulty steamboat captains in earlier days had in mooring their vessels there.  Another tradition has it that the town name came from the uncertainty that residents had about their citizenship before the boundary between the United States and the Republic of Texas had been established.  Caddo Lake straddles the border of Texas and Louisiana.  The latter uncertainty was a substantial benefit to residents who did not like paying taxes.  

In the early 1900s the site included a hunting, fishing, and boating society called the Uncertain Club.  During the 1940s the community had scattered dwellings, a sawmill, several camping lodges, and some five other businesses.  In a bid to promote tourism by providing an area with legal alcohol consumption, the community was incorporated as Uncertain in 1961.  That year many of its 213 citizens were fishing-camp operators. The population of Uncertain was estimated at 189 in 1988, and the town limits were irregularly shaped, as they were designed to include most of the restaurants and fishing camps along that part of the Caddo Lake shoreline.  Beer Smith's Caddo Lake Airport, known as the Fly and Fish, also lay within the boundaries of the community.  In 1990 the population of Uncertain was 194. The population was 150 in 2000.

Found this trackable in an overlooked box of my Geocaching things after two multi-state moves. I am putting at the nearest cache that will get it moving again!

Sorry for misplacing this great trackable,
