Where Are Our Travel Bugs?
Geocachers hunt for secret caches around the countryside (and world) by solving intriguing clues and some clues involve milestones or guide stoops. Caches that are very close to milestones are indicated by blue icons in the map below. Numbered icons show the current location of a number of travel bugs that we have placed at remote caches with instructions to return them to their home cache.
