    Does it have a goal? Or is it freestyling?

    I hope to find it one day and help it on its mission.
    Awesome idea.

    Oh yeah, I would at least beef up that key ring or somehow drill a small hole in the pup and use a small cable to hold the tb on there.
    I have seen way too many broken or separated.

    Can you post the link to the bugs page so we can follow it in its adventures?
    Never mind. Found it and will bookmark it.

    Cool, we'll keep our eyes open for it. 927 finds and counting. Also want to get one of those TB window clings so the PUP itself is a TB.

    I can't find it on the geocaching website. Where did you find it?

    Added to my watch list. If it ever gets out near me, (MN) I'll try to grab it and help it on it's journey.

    So I'm thinking you need to setup a map thread where you can pin it's travels so everyone can see where it goes.
    A read only thread might be a better, cleaner look that would allow you to log where and when it's been found and/or placed.
    Just an idea.

    There is a map of the travel bugs (Popupportal travel bug) travels on geocaching.com.
    The information to track it is on page one.
