Wow! What an amazing past two months we have had with our Geocaching Project. The students in Ms. Smith’s class have created a special page for their Dragon. Other bugs are headed to New Zealand (Trev’s Tag), Texas (Ramenstein), Australia (Kallista Jake), Illinois (Zion Mystery Sphere), and our latest release is bound for Kansas (John Brown’s Secret). You can keep track of all of our bugs on Mr. Miller’s Bug Tracker Page.
Here are a few statistics for you:
- Number of bugs released – 6
- Number of bugs awaiting release – 1 (bound for Mr. Webb’s class in NZ)
- Number of kilometers covered by all bugs to date – 22,351
- Number of miles covered to date – 13,888
- Number of kilometers covered by busiest bug – 15,851 (Kallista Jake)
- Number of students involved in our project – 200+
Kallista Jake is currently in the hands of a pilot! He has written to us asking if he can take Jake on some more adventures with him . . .
Whoa, ToTo, we’re not in Kansas anymore! How did I get here!?
Hi, all. Let me introduce myself. Currently I am the keeper of the Kallista Jake Travel Bug. I call him KJ. My user name is RangerG/75. I live in Southern California and fly for a U.S. freight company. I got interested in geocaching last year when my oldest son, Erik, introduced me to it. I’ve had a lot of fun caching and having the opportunity to do it all over the world. It’s been my pleasure to drag your bug around for the past month or so. I’ve asked Mr. Miller if I can hold on to him for a little bit longer and see if maybe we can’t add some miles and introduce him, and you, to some new and interesting places.
So, if any of you have questions or comments, fire away! Just remember that I’m old and that you need to use small words and short sentences. And, yes, I do speak Australian! I’ve had the pleasure to visit that great country many times.
