In June of 09, when my caching career was only one month old I went on a caching trip up to the Minocqua WI area. On one of the finds I noticed a travel bug dog tag in the cache, nothing but the tag. I was a total newbie, but I knew that I should not be finding just a tag in a cache that supposedly has no inventory. As soon as we got back to the hotel I looked up the travel bug, and it was not found..so I thought, I must have typed in the number wrong or something.
So yesterday when cleaning out the truck and looking through some caching memorabilia we have I came across this tag again. Once again I went online to look it up, sure enough, I must have typed in the correct number, becuase this time I successfully found the travel bug page. This particular bug has not been logged since August of 2006, and is still supposedly in the possession of a WI cacher. This cacher had never visited the cache I found it in, but did find a cache a few miles away around the same time that it went missing. I am sure it was an honest mistake, I am hoping we can reverse it and fix it up again.
I have sent an e-mail to the T.B. owner, and the cacher with this bug in their inventory. I am hoping to get in contact with both people and resurrect this long lost bug.
It sure would be nice to get it fixed up and back in circulation.
Check back to see how I end up with this situation, I hope it works out.
