Hawaii Bound and The Sphere Finds a Hotel

Jake’s made his way out to Hawaii and toured several caches thanks RangerG/75. He even got a tour of the cockpit of the plane! Jake will be joining RangerG/75 on a few more adventures before he takes him back to the Islands and says goodbye next month. Jake has been collecting kilometers all along the way. He has now travelled farther than the Huzzahnian Dragon. His record may be hard to beat :-)

The Zion Sphere of Mystery made it’s way into the (appropriate) hands of a physicist in the San Jose area. SpinningCompass has quickly placed The Sphere in a bug hotel (a popular site for travel bugs) with instructions to move him on to Illinois as quickly as possible.

You can check out more details on these bugs adventures and the travel tales of each of our TBs by visiting

UPDATE (10/28/10): Jake is nearing 10,000 miles! His map keeps getting larger too :-)

From RangerG/75:

Since I had to go to work for a day and the weather was pretty good I thought that I’d take KJ with me so that we could add some miles and post some pictures. We flew from Los Angeles International Airport to the Memphis International Airport. Our route of flight kept us on a southerly track across the country. KJ saw California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Tennessee from 33,000 feet. I was hoping for a clearer day but there was a lot of dust and haze across our entire route of flight. The pictures that I’ve posted were taken over Southern Arizona about an hour into our flight. Tomorrow we do our road trip to the Sierras. I expect that we’ll be gone for three days caching and maybe doing a little fishing. We’ll have to wait and see about the fishing since the weather forecast shows that it might snow!

Our Kallista Jake bug headed to Australia, is in the hands of a geocacher named RangerG/75. He will be taking “Jake” with him from Southern California to Hawaii later this month and drop him off.

Jake had a chance to visit another clasroom on it’d trip. Here is the quote from the official log . . .

KJ’s TB spent the day with Mrs. Svensson’s 6th grade class at Hermosa Elementary School in Rancho Cucamonga, CA today. They enjoyed learning about Geocaching and how travel bugs get from place to place!
