Take Me To Your Leader 2014

Two years ago I started a unique travel bug race by sending 8 travel bugs to 8 cachers on 3 continents.  The idea was to see which TB, if any, would get back to my home town of Lenoir North Carolina USA first.  It was such a great success I wanted to do it again - but bigger this time.

So, in April 2014 I sent out 16 travel bugs to 16 geocachers on 5 continents, and started the race all over again.

You can view the introduction of the race here.

This page is intended to track the progress of these travel bugs.

Due to the asynchronous nature of how these TBs are released (i.e. they will not be placed into caches on the same day), the winner will be determined by the shortest difference between the date it first hit a cache to the date it is logged into a cache near Lenoir NC.

Stay tuned to this page for  updates on the race's progress.

Note: This page is updated manually. You can get instant updates for each of these bugs via email by adding them to your watch list via the Trackable details page on geocaching.com (click on the Track link below).
