I am trying to remember now where I saw a cache for "lost" trackables. Someone created one for that purpose.

Here's a whole list of them. http://www.geocaching.com/bookmarks/view.aspx?guid=aef2e9f8-fc6f-48da-8bd1-5e11f4f6f5a8

I think what we should do when a TB goes missing is to allow the owner to enter a new one. There's really no good way to allow replacements.

Pretty sure my racer can beat the two jeeps, but I'm not so sure about the C6. Looks like I'm going to have to put together a 'Vette killer.

I also have a Dodge Coronet with a 440 six-pack just waiting in the wings. Cool

May be looking to swap out the 440 for a 472 Hemi!!

What are we going to do to allow kids to race a TB they may have? They are too young to be WGA members.

WGA membership isn't a requirement.

I like that idea. We can really have fun with this.

Maybe we could drop the missing TBs back into the 2012 Picnic, which would be Archived, and give them credit for the returned mileage.

Who knows...a missing TB could be the winner! Smile

Not a bad idea. I could go along with that one.

So, if one of them makes it to Germany and then goes missing, it gets a 6000 mile freebie hop?

If everyone wants to do it that way, we can. I just see it as an easy way to gain a ton of miles without breaking the rules...

Good to know that kids can join in. My grandson actually has the Dodge attached to a Geico TB tag and wants to race his grandpa.


Looks like I'll have to track yours down and deep 6 it! Laughing Cool
