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

graybrownrustwhitestonedonut

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.

Jot 'Em Down, also known as Mohegan, Muddig Prairie, and Bagley, is in extreme western Delta County. The area was part of the James H. Larabee survey and was occupied by 1885, when the Bagley School opened.  In 1905 the school enrolled forty-six students and employed one teacher.  The location was shown on the 1936 county highway map as an unidentified settlement of one business and scattered dwellings.   That year Dion McDonald built a new store  and named it for Lum and Abner's fictional radio store, the Jot 'Em Down Gin Corporation.  The normally humorless state highway department later used Jot 'Em Down as the community name for maps and the name stuck.  In the 1940s, the community started a decline with the loss of its school.  Jot 'Em Down, in 1990, reported a population of ten and it  remained the same in 2000.

Found this TB and thought: Man, this looks like a bug that would be owned my someone I am familiar with. Didn't think I would find one this far south, however. Will pass it on soon.
