Oh dear - we have been notified our TB is now missing in action - its no longer in the last cache it was placed in - a TB hotel in USA. So looks like we are out of the race, c'est la vie.  :'( Jenny and George

Oh we aren't bothered about losing it, just thought we should let Grif Grof know.
It wasn't anything special so can't think that someone has taken a 'fancy' to it, as you say WT it may re-surface - perhaps in Rio  :o

Just been notified our TB has turned up in Vancouver! No-one has logged its journey from USA to there so thats another load of miles we won't get!
But at least its back in the game. Jenny

Forgot to say the cacher who found it is taking it down to GeoWoodstock in Colorado - so its on its way back down towards Rio!

Our TB got within sight of Brazil and then diverted back to America, then Scotland and then back to America, clocking up lots of miles though.

Remember there's a prize for most miles too  ;D - think (if you win) it'll be the third time you have?!  :)

Not my TB but one I placed in a cache - it disappeared for just over 3 years before it resurfaced in a cache in a totally different area :) ???

The TB owner wasn't happy with me, as I was the first cacher to move on their new TB and cachers after me, at the cache I left it at, reported no TB in the cache. All rather odd ::)

That must have been frustrating for you and nothing you can do about it.

We had a TB go missing in Canada, again several cachers reported no TB in the cache - it was eventually  put through the door of a Geocacher after being found in another type of cache [ can't remember what type now], but like the one you placed at least it re-surfaced!
