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, 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

beadwhiteblackbluespokesceramic

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.

Dropped Off 12/9/2017 Pengwinldy placed it in Little Tree California - 12.16 miles  Visit Log

Little Tree: Dropped the girl off for a birthday pool party and then went for a little walk on this beautiful 81 degree December day. Parked up at the sports complex as others suggested and tried to go down the hill but couldn’t find a suitable path. It’s pretty steep. Started over and decided to take the sidewalk out to the main road and down Community. At the Guardrail I was able to go down the hill with a much easier incline. Found the cache, signed the log, added a TB and my signature penguin.

Visited 12/5/2017 Pengwinldy took it to Rescue Mario...U2U's 500th hide placement California - 36.06 miles  Visit Log

Rescue Mario...U2U’s 500th Hide Placement: Working in my 360 degree challenge after work today. I’m afraid of heights and was quite uncomfortable being up on that bridge. I, too, have found similar hides so knew what to look for and this did not disappoint and thus was able to quickly take care of business and get down on solid ground. Unfortunately, when I made the rescue, there was only Mario...no log at all.

Visited 12/4/2017 Pengwinldy took it to Tree Nut California - 14.77 miles  Visit Log

Tree Nut: COTD before work. As I approached the corner, I noticed a muggle in a reflective vest looking like she was going to cross the street. I drove past and parked in the neighborhood and as I approached GZ on foot. Realized she was a crossing guard. No worries, I’m just going to go for a hike on the trail. Then I ran into a dude with one of those blowers “cleaning the trail”. Now why on earth would you use a blower on a dirt trail? I don’t know but it caused me to cough with all the particulars in the air and he stopped to look at me. Now how am I going to be sly? I decided to fake a phone call and turn around til I was out of site. Now that both had gone back to what they were doing, I slipped into GZ (nice cover) and made the grab. Left my signature penguin.

Watch out for Traffic!: Heading to a Christmas party tonight and grabbed this cache. Luckily not much traffic tonight. Not much of a cache either, just a piece of paper in a name tag protector. Might need some help.
