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


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. 

The original bug was damaged and returned to the owner by XTerra85.  The bead was replaced and returned to XTerra85 to continue its journey.  The stone is pinkish, but not as much as the original, nor as mottled.

Gunsight, in southern Stephens County, was named for the nearby Gunsight Mountains.  Gunsight was known on the wagon road between Fort Griffin and Stephenville in 1858.  However, it was settled until 1879.  Gunsight gained a post office in 1880 at J. W. Shepard's store. The community's population was fifty in 1890 and grew to 150 in 1920 because of the oil boom and the town's location near the Wichita Falls and Southern Railway.  During the 1920s Gunsight lost its railroad station and post office.  The population was reported as six from 1980 through 2000.
