Other travel bugs took completely different paths. For one, its overseas adventure began when a pair of cachers named That’s a Given took it with them on a trip to London. There, they visited one of the most famous of memorials, the Monument. From there, the journey for one of the travel bugs led to the United States – specifically, to a pub called The Tap Brewing Company in Haverhill, Massachusetts. An unofficial 4th annual meeting of cachers was held there on the occasion of the end of summer and celebration of the coming autumn. Good food and drink and a view of the Merrimack River were enjoyed by all. It was here that cacher Dschofield91 found the bug and took it to the state of Vermont.
Coincidentally, the casher jaylous1 set off on a trip to Texas from that very same pub. Along the way, he stopped at the hotel The Big Texas Travel Bug. As jaylous1 warns, the local container is truly “Texas-sized”, so experienced cachers would have no trouble finding it. The next stage of the journey for the #KODIAQ bug led to Tucumcari, New Mexico.
This out-of-the-way city is interesting even for those who are not cachers. Jaylous1 describes it as follows: “The area is secluded but exceedingly beautiful. On our trip, we saw a great number of flying buzzards. The head of the local native YMCA organization is even named after the bird – his nickname is Big Buzzard.” The trip across New Mexico continued with a stopover at the Wining Dragon restaurant to taste the local specialties. There, jaylous1 and some friends heard a lot about the Jemez area and saw a staggering number of flying hummingbirds. They also agreed with the owner of the restaurant to leave a cache there for other cachers visiting the area.
