  1. Most unusual is tricky... probably the tattooed bug on the wrist of a 60 year old lady.

    I am a subscriber, I use the RSS feed and read it in Google Reader

    I don't use twitter so I can't help you there. G+ suffice? :)

  2. I saw a TB on a tooth. A real tooth in a guys mouth. LOL Kind of weird trying to read a TB number in a mouth.

  3. Definitely the oddest TB I ever saw -- a mile marker. A TB that weighed almost 200 pounds.

    How would you like to move that from cache to cache?

  4. Oh yeah -- and I subscribe to you via Google Reader. :)

  5. Most unusual - for sure the tattoo on the arm of a person (at the Yuma Mega Event - woohoo!). But my favorite was a geocoin called "Strength, Peace, Hope, Serenity" from the Oklahoma City Memorial and Museum. It has unfortunately been labeled as "Missing" since it was in my hands and I'm so bummed about it! Really neat piece.

  6. I subscribe to the blog via email!

  7. And finally, I tweeted! :) Here:

  8. My oddest travel bug discovery was a large piece of machinery/molding used to create trains or train tracks. It weighed a ton! Thankfully I only discovered it and didn't take it with me!

    I subscribed via iGoogle and Google Reader, as well, tweeted about your contest from @geobadging!

  9. We've had two really memorable travel bugs. We carried Cindy the Cinderblock over a mile out of the Allegheny National Forest. I can't remember the name of the other travel bug, but it was a bottle of ashes from a cacher's cremated dad. If I remember the name, I'll post it.

    We try to add a coin from each state we've visited. A mega coin would be a nice coin for Arizona.

  10. What a nice coin!

    Not the most unusual, but one of my favorites, is one my mom released for my sisters nephew who passed away from cancer. It's mission is to travel and have it's picture taken with mountains. SO far it's traveled over 38,000 miles and is in Germany.

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway. I've subscribed to your blog for a long time, but I don't do twitter.

  11. Well hello!
    The most fascinating traveller we have encountered is one that we own. ;) We just had to have it.
    You can use CTB2XQTA to look it up. It's a Planisphere.
    With being a Postcrosser, another really really neat traveller we have seen is a TB with postcards attached from all the areas it has visited. I need to put a West Coast postcard on it because it is in our hands at the moment. ;)


  12. I have now told twitter - two accounts - about your competition. :)

    And as for subscribing - well. I'm an old fashioned kinda girl who just keeps blogs I like to read on my blog roll & checks them out there from time to time. Or when I see a new post mentioned on FB or Twitter. So I guess that doesn't really count.

    Annie Again. :)

  13. What a nice coin. One of the oddest TB I´ve found was a chrocheted cap on a guy which I saw at an event in Sweden.

    I have just come across your nice blog and I wll follow though Blogger. I geocache as forjoi and you find my blog here:

    Thanks from Inga
