I Found 100 Caches Today

The Bugs are at it again!   A Kickstarter campaign is underway to fund a new single and accompanying geocoin.  Both the song and the coin will celebrate that oh-so-elusive goal of finding 100 caches in a single day.  If you belong to this elite group of cachers who have actually managed this accomplishment, or if you have it on your bucket-list to join their ranks, or if you just wanna high-quality limited-edition coin, please consider backing this effort.

The geocoin can have a geocaching handle and a date engraved on it, so in addition to being a collectible and trackable item, it can commenorate your achievement.  And there are lots of other goodies available at the different backing levels, including trackable copies of the Travel Bugs' debut CD "Found It!" and even a few Travel Bugs World Tour geocoins.

It's Mega Cover

It's Mega!

The Travel Bugs laytest single "It's Mega!" was produced by the geocaching community, literally.   A Kickstarter campaign was launched to create a single that captures that wonderful feeling when an event becomes a mega, and thanks to some wonderful backers, the song was funded and became a reality. It weaves a tale of an event that gradually grows as cachers arrive and eventually reaches that coveted number of attendees, 1000.   You can find it in all the normal places you get your music (Apple, Spotify, YouTube etc.)   And you will hear the following geocaching handles in the list of attendees (and some of them as guest vocalists):
TravellingGeek, ThePaperPilot, PuzzlePainter, TW, Cache The Line, FlameCarrier, HartenDame, Spooky Luke, SgtSue, 1More, ScienceNerd, BobBilly, Practical Geocaching, Semmels123, Flint Hills Geocachers, Capt Biggins

Mingo Bound!

NMingo Bound Video Still

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!
