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

While I have lived in Texas for nearly 50 years, I was born and grew to an adult in Kansas.  When I tell someone of my origins, they almost always respond in one of two ways:  “I have been there but I don’t remember much about it” or “that 400 mile drive across the state on Interstate 70 is really boring.”  There is more to the state than that.  The wheat grown there feeds the world, and the people are nice.  I watch for items I can convert to travel bugs.  Some some metal beads having a raised letter on the face were encountered and each bead was named for a Kansas town whose name starts with the letter on the face of the bead.  The towns remembered either have a connection to my youth or have an interesting name or history.

Neodesha is a town town of about 2,500 people in Wilson County in the southeastern part of the state.  The first settlers in the area that would eventually become Neodesha established a trading post in October 1867 to the northwest of the present town. They were allowed by the Osage Indians to establish a trading post on the Osage Diminished Reserve because the nearest trading post was over thirty miles away.  The town is located between the Verdigris and Fall Rivers.  The name is derived from the Osage Indian word translated as The-Water-Is-Smoky-With-Mud. The local pronunciation is Nee-oh-duh-shay. Our Ichthyology class took a field trip to Neodesha to seine some streams. We drove over to Chetopa Dam on the Neosho River where I saw my first and only paddlefish, albeit a small one,   At that time they were exceedingly rare but now the species is managed by the state.  They are a strange-looking game fish (see uploaded photo) but are not attracted to bait.  Instead they are plankton-feeders and are taken only by snagging.  They can grow to over 100 pounds and six feet in length.
