Mine wouldn't fit into the rock cache I found today, so still in my possession for now...

I see my TB has now travelled 120 miles, I think this is an error... This TB is an old one that has been reused, so has previous mileage, visits etc... I think these miles are the distance travelled from the last cache to where I dropped it off, so if I change the log date to, say, 31st December 2014 for when I dropped it off will this reset the mileage back to zero so that when the current cacher in possession of it drops it off it will start its journey from that point?

Ah yes, good point.

Or it may correct itself, a few years ago it had the Grizzly's at 23,000miles before it realised there was an error and it took them down to 17,000  :o It took a couple of months for it to correct though!

I've changed the date I dropped the TB to 31/12/2014, so hopefully the mileage will correct itself at some point in the near future...

I see my SuperBike image is still a retired ginger footballer, but I also see that Griff's 'Henry' has transformed into a SuperBike, so there is hope yet.

 :'(  Sadly my SuperBike has been taken from my TB Hotel but not logged or moved on. It was taken by The Georgians (that's the name in the logbook) on 4 January but there's been no action since. So if anyone knows The Georgians could they ask them to get a move on and log the bike then move it on please?
I haven't been able to trace them on geocaching so I wonder if they've just started and don't know the ropes - if anyone can help in finding them please let me know!
Many thanks, Jane (Sly2)

I hope it turns up, a real shame if it has disappeared already, hopefully it is just newbies unsure what to do :-(

My mileage has now corrected downwards to 50 miles, so I am happy with that, although my super bike image is still a ginger footballer...

Sorry to hear that  @sly2  :( Hopefully it will turn up, or maybe you misread their name since their writing wasn't clear in the log? It sadly doesn't ring a bell though. As @walktall said on the CC shout box, the 4th of Jan wasn't too long ago, they may be slow loggers too  :)

@gaz_zippy, that's good - my image has reverted back to a footballer  :o ::)

Good to see a few miles on some of the bikes now. Not mine yet though  :P

Image now changed. I logged in to tb-run, then clicked on my image where you have the option to request an image update, this runs once daily, so checked today and the ginger one has now been replaced by a super bike.

Think I will take a lunchtime walk tomorrow to the cache I dropped my bike in. The cache had a finder today but there was no mention of my bike  :-\

Checked on the cache I put mine in on yesterday's lunch break walk. Good and bad news. Good, it's not lost. Bad, it's still there not moved.
