One of my TBs has made it to Europe

Postby 89SC on Mon May 12, 2008 9:14 pm

Stanley Stork was taken to the Netherlands, 3938.3 miles in one hop. He then went to Austria and is now on his way to Germany. Very cool! I have to use babelfish to read the logs. I had to hunt down that map site so I could color in the countries. His page: http://www.geocaching.com/track/details.aspx?id=488456

very cool! Maybe your TB will run into one of my coins hopping around Europe....

I have one in Germany and one in Luxembourg

It's fun when they move around like they're supposed to. I have two other TBs. One got picked up by a newbie cacher two years ago and he hasn't cached since and won't answer emails. The other was touring Canada but got put in a cache that has only been visited once.

That's a nice jump. It makes up for all that time it spent stuck up on Coalcat Knob. Who put it up there anyway? Oh wait a minute :cool:

Seems like all TB's and coins travel much better overseas. Congrats on them still be active and making some nice jumps!

I was just telling TGB today that it seems like the European cachers seem to be more responsible with trackables than the American cachers are. Time will tell.

I don't know ... who could it have been? Maybe the same person that left one up in a Puzzling Situation? At least that one was only stuck for 3 months. :grin: Of course, I think I may have left a couple in Coalcat Knob that were there for a year. :shock:

Probably due to much better public transportation.

Seriously though, not ALL TBs travel better overseas - seems we've had issues in South Africa. :???:

89sc, that looks to be a gorgeous location in the pre-Alps for a person or TB to visit.
