Current GOAL

This travel bug was sent from the owner in Texas, USA, to a cacher in the UK, for release there.  The owner prefers it remain in the UK, if possible.  To extend longevity, please drop this item in a rural OR Premium Member Only cache.  Please do not drop it in an urban cache. It may be taken to and traded at a caching event, but do not abandon it there.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; this prevents tangling with other items.

Travel bug photos in the logs are appreciated.  I will re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

brownblackwhitestonedonut

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.

Point Blank is in northern San Jacinto County. The name originated with Florence Dissiway, a Frenchwoman who moved to the area during the 1850s to be a governess for the R. T. and Henry Robinson families.  Dissiway called the spot Blanc Point (White Point in French), which local residents eventually changed to Point Blank, changing the context of the original name.  

R. T. Robinson reputedly set up the first store; among the community's early residents was future governor George T. Wood, who set up a plantation as early as 1839.  Wood was subsequently buried in the Robinson cemetery, where a monument was erected by the state in 1911.  A post office was established at Point Blank in 1884.
