One of our travel bugs just made a 10,397 mile jump. When I clicked on its new location I had to keep zooming OUT so many times on the map before I realized where it was that I thought it had landed on another planet. Twas fun.

Where The Heck Am I?

Where is that? I have to get out my National Geographic Maps to check that out. I am following that TB and when I tried to read the log (in French) I just assumed that it was somewhere still in France. Hope that it can swim for its next jump! :D

No picture posted yet, and not really a specified goal, but now at the LeAST the word of "CHEECH HONORS" has gotten to big-wigs around here.

Nice to see the two NWO Tbs had a secret agenda they were working on together, but failing to tell any if us about.

So someone actually gets paid there to maybe go through and maintain the TB listings at that cache?
What a job! :mrgreen:

I suppose the page is setup to automatically trace what is reported to go in and what is reported to leave. The result is reported on the page

The person who dropped it has has our geocoin since 7/21/11. I'm just glad they didn't lose it in all that time.

I hope this one doesn't suffer the same fate as the Cheechs Honors one that disappeared there. (Mentioned two posts up.)
