A new type of cache... Introducing the Cachebug


You may or may not have some caches. You may or may not have some travel bugs. You most likely do not have a Cachebug. (This is interesting to me for more reasons than the obvious name association.) This is a new type of traveling cache. It carries a log and trade items but travels from cache to cache. It's a new travel bug/cache hybrid! It could be trackable on its own too! Imagine getting a cache number (GCXXXX) and giving it a starting position. A free trackable traveler?!?!? Maybe ;) What do you think?

I believe this would work under the Mystery Cache designation:

Mystery or puzzle caches

The “catch-all” of cache types, this form of cache can involve complicated puzzles you will first need to solve to determine the coordinates. The only commonality of this cache type is that the coordinates listed are not of the actual cache location but a general reference point, such as a nearby parking location. Due to the increasing creativity of geocaching this becomes the staging ground for new and unique challenges.

I have had a cache like this for three years

GC9D2E - Keep it Moving

Small Altoids can that moves from place to place

The purpose of this cache is to keep moving. Not necessary to other caches, but to new places. It's small size, Black color, and magnetic back allow it to be placed just about anywhere (within the general rules for cache placement).
