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, 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. I will re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.
About This Item
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.
Hogeye is in north central Hunt County. It was probably established before 1858, when a Masonic lodge was constructed there. The community is named for the symbolic eye of the Masonic order, which looked "to some of the unlettered natives" like a hog's eye. The first floor of the lodge functioned as a community school until the lodge was moved to Kingston and then to Celeste in 1886. Hogeye declined as nearby Celeste grew with the arrival of the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway in 1886. The 1984 county highway map showed a community hall at Hogeye.
