We recently traded for a R2-D2 (TB27BET) Travel Bug in Green Bay. I was contacted by the owner shortly afterwards and they were excited to see it was close to their home in the Twin Cities. They have been waiting for it to get back home so their son can use it for a Geography Fair in January. R2 has traveled almost 20,000 miles. I was going to head there for a wedding in mid October but I am no longer going. I am looking for someone in the Green Bay/Fox Cities area that is headed to the Twin Cities soon and can deposit R2 in a local cache. Please let me know if you can assist R2 to get home. Thanks
-J

I live in Shawano and go to St. Paul every week. I am going to be in Green Bay this Friday night. Send me a PM if I could be of help.

How exciting to hear of a TB success story instead of the usual MIA.

I know, I have released one trackable so far. I placed it in a cache, it was picked up and then never heard from again. Kids were kinda disappointed. I guess its part of the game though.

I saw your post bartrod, that was cool that your trackable showed up. I haven't given up, just not that hopeful.
