Travel Bugs

For those of you unfamiliar with geocaching, a travel bug is a trackable item that is moved from place to place. It is logged when it is dropped off or picked up from a geocache anywhere. We have taken and replaced many travel bugs during geocaching but never our own. We dropped a Jeep travel bug off at Governor Dodge State Park several weeks ago and it is in George Washington National Park on the east coast right now. A tag is attached to whatever you want and the owner of the bug chooses it's name and the goal of the bug. We ordered our travel bug tags through REI and set two bugs up to drop off in Door County.

The kids looked through their bins of toys and found a couple things to attach to the tags. Zack chose a Scooby Doo Mystery Machine van and Kevin wanted a hole drilled in a bouncy ball.

Here are their creations. They have been dropped and are still on Washington Island. Hope they move soon.
