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 and will be re-posted here.

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.  Much of the text is from the online Handbook of Texas, Wikipedia or texasescapes.com. I have small to large connections to most of them, having visited or worked nearby.

Del Rio is a city in and the county seat of Val Verde County, Texas. It is 152 miles west of San Antonio. As of 2015, the city had a population of 40,549. Del Rio is connected with Ciudad Acuña via the Lake Amistad Dam International Crossing and Del Río – Ciudad Acuña International Bridge. Del Rio is also home to Laughlin Air Force Base, the busiest United States Air Force pilot-training complex in the world.

I didn’t get to Del Rio until around 1968, after I moved to Texas. However, Del Rio was well-known to kids in Kansas because of the radio station XERF. The transmitter was across the river in Acuña, where it was immune to regulations in the US. At night, they would crank up their signal to 250,000 watts to be heard by us and servicemen at sea. The programming included 30-minute segments of radio preachers, gospel, early Rock & Roll, and hillbilly music. Wolfman Jack was a famous DJ who sold everything from baby chicks to the R&B collections that could not be found in most record stores in the north.
