Geowoodstock XX (2024) Travel Bug Guidelines

There will be no registering of TB numbers into or out of the Travel Bug area.

It is the responsibility of the cacher who logged the TB/coin into the event to either drop it at the TB area or pass it on to another cacher.  It is also the responsibility of the cacher who retrieves the TB/coin to log it properly in a timely manner.

As the owner of a TB or coin dropped into the event, it is up to you to contact the person who plans to bring your TB/coin about any concerns you may have.

The TB TRADERS will be asked to:

  • Put the individual TBs into a ziploc baggie (replace if in bad shape).
  • Print out the bug sheet for each TB, insert into baggie. 
  • Put a small slip of paper inside the baggie and give it one of several mission labels listed below for ease of sorting – WHERE the TB WANTS TO GO!! If it wants a particular state, list that as well. 
  • You will receive 1 ticket for each TB you bring there will be NO prize raffle, this will allow you to take the same number of TBs during the day on Saturday until 4 pm. 
  • As you leave the TB area: You will be asked to turn in 1 ticket for each TB you are taking.
    Those not having brought TBs will get the opportunity to pick up a limited number TBs after 3:30 pm on Saturday until all TBs are dispensed.


DISCOVER LOGS of TBs in the TB area will be discouraged due to the high volume of TBs and cachers expected. There will be a limited number of large TBs set aside whose owners have requested Discover logs.  These will be available for pick up after 3 pm on Saturday at the owner’s discretion.
