Geocaching in Tucson : Travel Bug from Germany

I was carrying esiem32’s Schlumpfine travel bug who had set out on her journey all the way from Baden-Württemberg, Germany with this as her Mission (translations from Google):

Reise durch die Welt. (Journey through the world.)
Mein Besitzer freut sich über viele Bilder.:) (My owner is happy about many pictures. 🙂 )

So here is Schlumpfine waving to esiem32 all the way from Tucson, Arizona’s desert.

So far she’s been to Germany, Denmark, Norway, England, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and in the USA states Utah, Nevada, and now Arizona.

      It is, isn’t it. I saw some Europeans taking pics with little figurines like this one and wondered what it was about. Now I know! It’s a travel bug!

    AWW, cute. Here’s hoping travel bug makes her way to West Tennessee, as I would be happy to post a pic!

      I hope she does too. over the next couple of days, I’ll post a couple more pics from that critter cache desert walk I did with her. I left her with the last cache and she’s already been picked up. I’ve put her on my watchlist as I’m curious where she will go from here. I’d love to see your geocachign pics too.
