A Challenge Issued


The gauntlet has been thrown down, a challenge has been issued. P.J., from Hoohaaa Blog has set forth this challenge. Here's the details:


Each participant must "release" a trackable Travel Bug in a geocache near their home. They can't touch it after that. The person whose TB travels the most miles in one year wins. Simple as that.


Many of my fellow geocachers are in the Air Force. Several of them are pilots...Do you see where this is going? I may have an "unfair" advantage. Then again, if some well-meaning cacher moves my item to some obscure spot, it may never move from there. Always a gamble.


I look forward to the challenge, and being able to track my item's movements online. I'll issue updates as the challenge progresses. Oh yeah, P.J., what's the prize for winning?

Very cool!! I can't wait for updates. This one sounds like fun. Since my plate is already full, and I'm chronically short on sleep as it is, I'll just have to live vicariously through your geocaching adventures!

No problem Sues. My the boy's geocoin (the one with monkeys) is now in Arizona. It made a quick, 6,500 mile trip over the weekend.

He, he, he. I see a victory in your future....

You can let me know a year from now P.J., since you will have first hand experience!
