At its core, The Travel Bugs is a project to make music about the world-wide passtime of geocaching.   The Bugs have produced a CD, some singles, a music video and even theme music over the past several years.   If you're here, then chances are you're a geocacher yourself, and if you wanna hear the music or see the videos, you are in the right spot.  

Anybody who likes music and geocaches needs to have the Travel Bug's CD "Found It!" on hand for those caching trips into the boondocks.

"Found It!"

Found It! Cover

"Found It!" is The Travel Bugs' musical debut and is a collection of 10 tracks of eclectic music about geocaching.   The song styles range from country to techno to straight-forward rock about the passtime that we all love so much.  

From the haunting tune "The Lost Cache of Forgotten Gulch" about a cache so difficult it's become legendary, to the humourous "To Whom it May Concern", a letter from a concerned Mr. Mug L. Guy asking for help with the "zombies" wandering around his fields out back, the songs weave stories about cachers and muggles alike.

You can find the music in most available streaming outlets, and if you want to own the physical CD and help support The Bugs' efforts to produce more music, it's available for purchase.  I really appreciate the folks who have supported this project over the years.  I couldn't have done it without you!  You rock!

The Worst Cacher Cover

The Worst Cacher

May we introduce Daniel Neville Flunkerbaum III (initials DNF).  He is without a doubt, the worst cacher to have ever walked this earth.  Imagine geocaching for over 2 decades and never once finding your quarry.

This little ditty was written for those cachers who like to end their day in the pub raising a glass with fellow seekers.   For those geocachers in need of a drinking song, this sing-a-long is for you.  So here's to Daniel Neville Flunkerbaum III who "cannot find his own behind when he is sittin' down!"

It's Mega Cover

It's Mega!

A single produced by the geocaching community, this tunes weaves the tale of an event that grows and grows until it finally reaches the fabled "mega" status".  Backed by geocachers via a Kickstarter campaign, this single actually includes the backers' voices as guest vocalists.   We're not gonna stop until everybody shouts, "It's Mega!!!!"

Fiona Finds an Earthcache

Found It!

As part of the effort to bring a Bugs concert to GeoCoinfest 2019 in Manchester, UK, a single was comissioned by cacher "Mrs Scothog".   It is intended to capture her love of earthcaching (she had found nearly 800!), and the lyrics are based upon her actual cache log entries.   Yes, she actually ran into a mountain lion once!

She asked that this song be made freely available to the geocaching community, so you can listen or download it at the link below.   I am extremely grateful to her for supporting what turned out to be an incredible experience for all involved and for sharing her experiences with us all.   If you wanted to commission you very own song, read more about it HERE.

If I close my eyes I can imagine all of us hanging out together listening to this great music!

"Mingo Bound" (Video)

The Travel Bugs have released a new song and music video "Mingo Bound!"

In August of 2022, Hans, the drummer for Bugsy Travels and the Ammo Boxes, visited Colorado as part of his trip to the US to perform at the HQ 20th Anniversary Celebration.  He and his wife Inge wanted to visit the Mingo Cache, so we loaded up the car and drove out into the prairie to find GC30, the oldest cache around.   We took some music equipment and performed a little impromptu concert at the cache site, much to the bewilderment of a truck driver who had stopped nearby.  This new video documents that road trip!

GEOCACHING DOWNUNDER

What a thrill to get to create the theme song for this podcast all about geocaching in Australia.  I worked with show host PurpleCacheEater to craft a theme song that reflected the Aussie sense of adventure and exploration.  If you're interested in finding out more about the geocaching scene south of the equator, check it out!

The new theme song for Geocaching Downunder is so catchy, it gets stuck in the head of everyone who hears it.

GEOCACHE TALK PODCAST

I was honored to be asked to create the theme song and background music for this weekly podcast.   It was fun figuring out a way to add the host Gary's signature tag line "at work, in the car, wherever you are" into the song.   In the end, I decided to just put his voice right in.  The podcast is a very casual, welcoming discussion about all things geocaching and the production quality is top-notch.  Gary and the gang are the ones who brought you the Worldwide Cachecon mega virtual event in 2021!

GEOPOD NORGE

This is a podcast out of Norway hosted by Johny and Irene.   I don't speak any Norwegian, so when I was asked to provide a Travel Bugs theme song for them, I was a little worried about how I would pull it off.   Luckily Johny was a good sport and via sound clips over the internet, he was able to coach me through just enough Norwegian to make it work.   This was definitely one of the most interesting music projects I've gotten to work on.   Now I want to go to Norway and perform it live!

Team Snip & Snap

Over in the Netherlands, Team Snip & Snap have a YouTube VLOG where they take you along on their geocaching adventures.   I've done a live, acoustic, version of "Found it!" on their program where they coached me through singing a little in Dutch, and the Travel Bugs' music features as background music for some of their videos.  It's fun watching them have fun!
