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.

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

blackbrownstonedonut2

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.

Noodle is southwest Jones County.  It took its name from Noodle Creek.  According to folk tradition the name meant "nothing," signifying a dry creek bed.  Settlement in the region began in 1882 with the arrival of Anderson Criswell, a sheepherder.  Later settlers came for the cheap ($5 per acre) land.  In 1898 Noodle acquired a store and in 1900 a post office, which operated until 1924.  By 1920 the town had added a gin, a blacksmith shop, and a garage.  In 1883 the first school, Willow Creek, was founded on Criswell's ranch northeast of the site of present Noodle.  Local residents built a school building in Noodle six years later and named it Cross Roads.  The population was never large and never exceeded  forty between 1950 and 2000.
