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, preserves the tracking number 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

I am always watching for something to convert to a travel.  I bought this item at a filling station in Pincher Creek, Alberta, the location of our B & B when we traveled around the region in 2015.

The town received its name in 1868 when a group of prospectors lost pincers in the small creek at this location.  The pincers were of a type used for trimming the hooves of the horses. In 1874, the North-West Mounted Police came to southern Alberta.  One of them discovered the rusting tools in the creek and Pincher Creek became the shorthand name for the region.  In 1906, the community that grew around the RCMP post was officially incorporated as Pincher Creek.  Many residents are descendants of the pioneer families who settled there over 100 years ago.  The town now has a population of about 3,500.
