In other news, a geocacher named dumpel claims to have “discovered”—i.e., found but left in the cache—Roxanne, Jack, and Sally.  But while 2 of these travel bugs are in California, Roxanne is on the east coast in the hands of another busy geocacher, nemom322.

While it’s conceivable that dumpel and nemom322, the holder of Roxanne, are friends, I doubt it: nemom322 is currently traipsing about New Jersey.  So, what’s going on?  Perhaps dumpel discovered the bugs online, hence his log, which he repeats verbatim for each bug: “Discovered it. Thank you for sharing.on the internet.”

I’m sure this isn’t proper etiquette.  But how did dumpel get the travel bug codes?  Which are on the dog tags but not on the webpages.  You can’t log a find without the code.  Ah.  Perhaps he culled them from this earlier post.  Would serve me right.

  6. Is Bo missing? Sunken Engine has been disabled but the bug should still be in it. Chintapop, do you have other information?
