Hmmm, the info on TB-Run.com on my TB shows the 3 current logs and the current cache it's in (in Switzerland) but the miles still on zero?

I'll wait to see what it does on the next update ::)

I have just found the link to this forum and find the comments sad. Please note I wish to withdraw from this game as you think I have two accounts which I do not. This is no longer the game I thought it would be. Goodbye Rio!

Well Paul Scholes made it all the way to Washington USA, but then he got dropped off in a TB hotel that seems to get raided for TB's on a regular basis, currently 14 of the 22 TB's (excluding mine) listed are missing, and those have only recently been dropped too.

OK, it a TB hotel where cachers may not be quick on logging (especially if they're on holiday) but it does sound like you are correct

Dropped TB to continue on its journey. No TB in container except the dog tags I just put in.

Dropping off a couple TB's. happy caching!


Found it
29/May/2014

Made the find quickly. Container had only a logbook when I retrieved it, so I signed the log and left a ballpoint pen and a Rehoboth Beach sticker. I would have stocked it a little better but I was driving my wife's truck instead of the regular geo-mobile so I didn't have my caching supplies with me. TFTC!

Might be better to post a Needs Maintenance, rather than a Note?
At least that might raise the problem with thre CO...

Or at least it would show in the attributes, where those planning to leave TB's might see there's a problem.
I have a Geocaching problem...

Remember to keep up with the race via the link above!

@strongsRus are leading with a sensational 23,450 miles on the clock, a record for any CW TB race, and there's still four months to go for that total to increase even more!

I see I am still in 4th place, despite my TB being reported stolen, sorry, going missing way back on the 5th May.

Shouldn't be long before my TB takes 4th place (hopefully)

Congratulations to @strongsRus who win with the most milage at nearly 24,000 miles - a new record.

Also, @HKMHill wins as first to make it to Brazil.

Hope you both enjoy your chocolates. It was a great race, our biggest and best yet!

Can we top it with the return of the CWSBC? Only time will tell (posting the info and setting race page up now - watch this space)

My David Beckham TB has returned to a cache near home after 3 years of travelling through Europe and North America

Was going to ask if you were going to retrieve it, but see you already have!
Keep it, or re-mission it?

Nice to see it still going, and all those miles... Shame no-one added any photos.  :(

I usually try to add a photo for any TBs I move or Discover. Seems very few bother to these days.
I have a Geocaching problem...
